Right Wing: Rove isn't radical enough!

Rove especially ticked off tea-party-minded conservatives in February when the super-PAC he advises, American Crossroads, announced it was launching the Conservative Victory Project, which would try to block far-right candidates from blowing key races, as Missouri's Todd Akin and Indiana's Richard Mourdock did in Senate contests last year...

Under the subject head "ROVE PROJECT," the memo reported:

...The Two Front War: The two front war covers finances and reputation. Rove has relationships built over the last two decades. He must become toxic among the grass roots and among his base. His effectiveness has been called into question on Sunday talk shows and at CPAC.

Not really surprising. (Both Rove trying control influence of the extreme right and the extreme right not wanting their influence controled). It's a pretty safe bet if any of the last 3 Republican presidents were to show up on the scene today they'd have little chance of getting TP suport.

You guys are pretty easy. Wanna buy a bridge? How about some checkerboard paint or a can of steam?

So there is no infighting in the R party? Then why is there a Tea Party inside of the R party?

Why did Erick Erickson of Redstate state that it is time for a 3rd party for true conservatives? And that party is to come from within the R party.

Ah, let 'er be, Hawk. She's just attacking "you guys" instead of your messages. That means she's beat.

(At least that's what I've heard)
