    I gather from Jazzsmack that following the constitution is a good thing, but I suspect he is really just using the phrase as shorthand for "everything I believe and nothing others do". His allies are the "center and far right", and he manages to come up with what has to be a tiny group - "the very liberal and progressive right". I guess Hatch qualifies because he once may have had a conversation with Democrats. Those "former Democrats" he mentions? They switched in order to be with MORE conservatives, not to infiltrate the GOP from the left.

    'enemy' was probably the wrong word.

    'Opposition' may be a better word, or just the democrats and the extreme left.

    The GOP are quite able to define who they are and with much more accuracy then the opposition will give who certainly do not base theirs on love for their fellow man.

    Extremist certainly do not rule.

    It is the very liberal and progressive right who rule the party like hatch and lindsay graham and many others, many who were once democrats.

    It is the center and far right that want get back to following the constitution,

    the liberals and progressives consider that to be extreme, such leftist and progressive leader ship is leading to the destruction of the GOP.

    "The enemy?" That is just full of love for your fellow man.

    The younger sensible members of the GOP may have their day, but in the meantime, the extremists rule, and they are determined to destroy the Republican Party, which is perfectly fine by me. Personally, I would suggest that the Tea Party secede from the GOP, thus creating two small minority parties that can bicker with each other over how to be severely and purely conservative while the Democrats try to put things back together after 30 disastrous years of Reaganomics.

    Apparently you haven't even bother to read the always hateful comments from the left.

    Exactly who does the GOP hate other than what we are told in the typical comments you get from the hateful left?

    The GOP doesn't hate anyone they just have different approaches and views to the problems.

    Getting informed by the enemy is not getting informed.

    It seems to me that the Deseret News staff would be most pleased if the Republicans would just adopt the Democrat parties platform and agree with everything they want. At least that is the way it seems based on the number of biased articles they continue to print.

    My suggestion is that this country should return to following the Constitution. But then that would mean following the advice of just a bunch of old white guys. Can't have that, now can we?

    The GOP has nowhere to go but into oblivion and they are doing everything they can to insure it happens.

    The only thing the GOP has done is to reinforce the policy and democrats ideas is putting the GOP in competition. Just because and idea or plan is suggested doesn't warrant an alternative when a NO is the suitable response.

    The Republicans have killed their own chances and the time is ripe for a new political party to emerge that is not afraid of confrontations and convictions and trust in the Constitution and people of the United States. The Tea party has a chance to revitalize and get rid of the plants hired by the Obama administration who say they represent the Tea Party in destructive public displays.

    The Tea Party should register as a political force with organized and registered member's to block Obama plants as frauds and a new directions of governemnt reorganization and reductions. A plan to organize government from rulers to leaders will win the next election. We have nothing to loose, the GOP is dead meat and power has to be restored to the people.

    From the article:
    "The latest loss was due in large measure to President Barack Obama's advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney among younger and nonwhite voters."

    The truth is that Obama won with black women over 60 and the fact that Republicans stayed home in droves.

    Why does the DN continue to print AP stories from the left?

    ""It's very easy to just say no, and there are times where it's appropriate to say no," said Jason Weingartner of New York, the newly elected chairman of the Young Republican National Federation. "But there are times where you need to lead and present ideas on the issues of the day.""

    Did you hear that Mike Lee?
