    One thing I've learned about straddling a fence, it's not a good thing for the boys. It won't take long for them to figure out it can be an uncomfortable position.

    I'm married, I have no use for mine anymore.
    Anyway, I like this. I will be keeping an eye on who this group supports in the future.

    It isn't a political party. It is a group. And doing just what I predicted, split the democrats.

    Interesting bit of magical thinking. Time will tell. The roots of the party lie with Lincoln, TR and Ike - all of whom would be cast aside today by the radical right as RINO.

    Maybe the Rush/Beck/Foxbots will awake and realize they're FOS. 2014 and O-care implemented would be the beginning of that if they have any minds left at all...

    .

    I'd love to see this take root. Give the GOP hardliners the party all to themselves and see how well they do. By grabbing the pragmatic conservatives, the moderates, independents and the fiscally conservative Democrats, the new party would have a real chance.

    Good for them.
