Palin: "The GOP Needs To Get It's Stuff Together To Stop The Rise Of A Third Party"

Prescient and spot on as usual, Governor Sarah Palin is simply telling it like it is - the Republicans have no concerted message so far, have been far to accommodating to President Obama's agenda and if they're not careful are at high risk of not just disenchanting their base, but losing it forever.

The latest Gallup says that 52% of Republicans think a third party is necessary, by the way.

As the person who was most responsible ( along with Senator Jim DeMint) for keeping the Tea Party inside the GOP tent and for the success the party had in the 2010 midterms, Governor Palin knows of what she speaks.

For the record, the last thing I personally want to see is a split in the Republican Party, not because I care that much about the GOP as an institution but simply because political infrastructures take time to build up, and a three party race along those lines would give Obama and the Democrats an advantage in 2012 that could lead to his serving a second term. And that would be disasterous for the country, as Governor Palin points out.

But I see no advantage either in maintaining a Ruling Class style GOP establishment that is simply going to be Democrat-lite.

The Republicans need to look at whom they are and the values the GOP is supposed to stand for and act accordingly. Otherwise, a third party is exactly what we'll see.

The arrogance of the Republicans gave us Bill Clinton. I voted for Perot as did millions of others. The Republicans were living in a dream land and wanted all us good conservatives to compromise on those things that are most important to us.
