Finally, A GOP Litmus Test

A prominent attorney, Jim Bopp, Jr., has come up with a plan called the “Resolution on Reagan’s Unity Principle for Support of Candidates” and it’s being circulated among RNC members in the hopes of generating party support.

What does this have to do with Reagan? “President Ronald Reagan believed … that someone who agreed with him 8 out of 10 times was his friend, not his opponent,” the resolution states. With that in mind, if a candidate strayed from the list on three or more issues, the RNC resolution, if approved, would block him/her from receiving financial support and/or official endorsements.

The test for Republican candidates includes the following points:

  1. I like all of these shall we say “desirable attitudes” in a candidate. It really does behoove the RNC to do a better job vetting their endorsements as the Democrat calling herself a Republican in New York election recently shows. If the Republicans don’t get on the stick and get back to their roots then the Independents just may have a better chance in 2010. heck we may even get a third party out of it. (yeh, I know: dream on!) BB

  2. I’d like to see the GOP “be the ball” instead of the backboard. In other words the GOP needs to quit being reactive to DNC initiatives. The GOP needs to acquire vision and leadership to make the DNC the backboard, reacting to GOP initiatives.

    When the GOP had control of Congress, they should have been advancing the issue of health care. I’ll even dare to say they should have made it a bi-partisan project.

    As it is now, congress, given a mandate by half the voting country, are deciding for the other half what health care should be.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
