At least twice a week, I speak to Republican groups throughout California about things like “How to Market our GOP Message” and “How To Change the Negative PR of the GOP”. Each time I talk to these wonderful groups of hard-working activists, I try to instill confidence in the Republican Party and encourage them not to give up.
However, I need someone in the GOP to extend some encouragement to me this time because I’m certainly not feeling much confidence in our Party today.
This weekend on “Fox News Sunday” Chris Wallace revealed that many of our “top-level Republicans” were “besieging him with all kinds of information” to use against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz prior to his appearance on the show.
“As soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats but from top Republicans, to hammer Cruz”, Wallace said.
Why in the world would you do something like that? You obviously believed you were so far beyond reproach that Chris Wallace wouldn’t tell us what you were trying to do, but this time you messed with one Texan who you should be supporting 100%. Senator Cruz is one of the few members of the Senate that we trust to speak out for us. These days there are very few Republican politicians who seem to care about our needs and aren’t afraid to represent us—so why are you trying to destroy Sen. Cruz?
Here in California, I have personally been told by “top-level Republicans” that the only person who can win the upcoming governor’s race is one of the most incompetent, Democrat-lite men in politics. They refuse to back Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly because he’s not “establishment” enough (and perhaps because his name isn’t ethnic enough…). I have also heard from other sources that “top-level Republicans” are pushing for Chris Christie to become the GOP presidential candidate in 2016.
The phrases “stunningly unaware” and “out-of-touch” come to mind…
So what is going on? You’re obviously not listening to us. Are you trying to kill the Republican Party forever? Because you certainly aren’t instilling any confidence or faith in any of us grassroots-types out here who could be helping you.
I’m sad to say this, but if you don’t get your act together very soon and start working with all our Republican leaders—especially those backed by the Tea Party – you are going to lose a giant chunk of your hardest-working Republicans forever.
I’ll be waiting for your response…
