Republicans Would Rather Fight Each Other than Obama

Posted on September 17 2010 7:00 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

It’s fascinating to see the civil war that broke out recently among conservatives. The Tea Party movement took on moderate candidates (for Congress and the Senate) they declared ‘RINO’s’ (because they were moderate in their social, and often also in their fiscal views), while the conservative establishment fought back by labeling Tea Party activists naive radicals who don’t understand that you sometimes have to settle for a moderate candidate if you want to win in general elections.

Whomever is right is of little concern to me – in this post at least.* To me, it’s far more important to point out that it seems a bit counterproductive for conservatives to have a go at each other, while their country is being burned down by the progressives, led by Obama, who took over Washington back in 2008. They apparently would rather waste their energies destroying each other than the ones who are doing their best to “radically transform” America into something you and I won’t recognize. It might just be me, but this seems a tad bit counterproductive and even downright silly. If I was one of these activists or members of the establishment, I’d probably want to focus on beating the real enemy – progressives. Not on taking down my political friends.
