AMERICAblog: Viguerie blasts GOP
AMERICAblog's John Aravosis examines the latest email from the king of conservative direct mailers: "Richard Viguerie is commonly considered the father of direct mail marketing. He is one of 'the' gurus of the entire conservative movement, going back decades.
Note that in this email he just sent to his list he not only blasts the Republicans, in shockingly harsh language, as offering voters nothing, he also says that it would probably be better if the Dems wont back one house of Congress.
And one final, very telling point. Viguerie provides a list of issues the GOP must focus on in order to win back ec economic and social conservatives - yet he doesn't mention one single social issue of concern to those who are commonly considered 'social conservatives,' the religious right. Abortion and gays are missing totally from his list. So are school prayer, the Ten Commandments, flag burning and pretty much every other issue the religious right cares and screams about.
We are witnessing the beginnings of a Republican civil war that is very much at odds with the current GOP leadership and the religious right."
