These ‘insiders’ think they are going to attract tea partiers and the grass roots. What these yahoos fail to realize is that most tea partiers are Conservatives and that’s why they left the GOP. So, here’s a group of RINO’s who think the answer is to be Democrat light or as Glenn Beck likes to call them as the Republican Progressives.
From the WSJ Online – Republican Leaders Forming New Political Group
At least half a dozen leaders of the Republican Party have joined forces to create a new political group with the goal of organizing grass-roots support and raising funds ahead of the 2010 midterm elections, according to people familiar with the effort.
The organizational details of the group, expected to be called the American Action Network, are still being worked out, but it is expected to contain both a 501(c)3 and a 501(c)4 component. In simpler terms, a 501(c)3 can advocate on policy matters while a 501(c)4 is an election arm.
Republican leaders expected to be affiliated with the group include former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Bush adviser Karl Rove, Republican strategist Ed Gillespie, and Republican donor Fred Malek.
This will also go no where with the grass roots. All this will do is pull the large dollar donors from the RNC, RNSC and RNCC since most of the Tea Partiers and grass roots have stopped donating to any of these groups. These people are so stuck on their own narrative they don’t have a clue what is driving the grass roots.
