The Republican Un-Civil War
The Neocons and the Tea Party Fight for Control of the GOP
BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This election is not about Obama-Romney as much as it is about the very uncivil Civil War being conducted in the Republican Party, where one of its two factions is culminating a 35 year party coup that will reshape American politics forever. Even though the Republicans may seem, particularly to Liberals, like one unified front, they have been anything but.
As we noted earlier this year, the Republican Party is deeply divided between old-school Reagan Neocons, the Karl Rove faction whose standard bearers include Mr. Romney, and the 19th century-revisionist, extremist John Bircher Libertarians of Grover Norquist, the Koch brothers, et al who control the money that funds the Tea Party.
We saw those divisions emerge as the Neocons' candidates, Mr. Romney and Mr. Gingrich, were slammed hard by big money tossed primarily at Rick Santorum. Romney struggled to clinch the nomination because changes in campaign spending rules allowed Tea Party backers like the Kochs and Foster Friess to stick monkey wrenches into the nominating process, just as they've been tampering with the Congress and state houses around the nation.
The GOP is a political party that registers barely 2 in 10 Americans, yet billions from a handful of Citizens United donors, the richest handful of the 1%, will have a significant impact on this election. Not on the presidential race as much as the local races for the state and federal legislatures.
It is common, particularly for the TV talking heads, to lump both groups into one GOP whole. Frequently as they rant on to the host, though, you can still pick up the distinct agendas of the two camps.
