RNC standing tall, Washington GOP collapsing

Finally! The Republican Party is taking an official stand in opposition to the bailouts. No... it's not the sellouts in Washington - it's the Republican National Committee members from across the country.

From The Washington Times by Ralph Z. Hallow:

Republican Party officials say they will try next month to pass a resolution accusing President Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing "socialism," underscoring deep dissension within the party at the end of Mr. Bush's administration.

Those pushing the resolution, which will come before the Republican National Committee at its January meeting, say elected leaders need to be reminded of core principles. They said the RNC must take the dramatic step of wading into policy debates, which traditionally have been left to lawmakers.

"need to be reminded of core principles"

Funny. While I absolutely agree that Bush's Billionaire Banker Bailout flies in the face of any sort of conservative value I ever espoused... I think the likes of Sen. Russ Feingold and Rep. Dennis Kucinich espouse liberal ideals. And they both opposed the bailout.

Maybe America should cast their votes in 2010 based entirely on whether or not someone supported the bailout. From my perspective, there's probably a fairly strong correlation between those who voted for the Billionaire Banker Bailouts and the Inside-the-Beltway Sellouts.
