When will Capitol Hill Republican Party’s leaders see and/or hear the November 2014 election messages. The first message in the 2014 election season and ignored by the GOP leadership was the defeat by Virginian Republicans to retire one of the top GOP leaders on Capitol Hill.
A few other wins with Conservative TEA Party Republican Party defeats followed; however, many other mainstream Republicans may have been defeated and Conservative TEA Party Republican Party candidates elected had Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Boehner stayed out of the local GOP ‘Primary’ Elections with their own Political Action Committee (PAC) money.
Local Republicans must be allowed to make their own preference selections in ‘primaries’. Capitol Hill leaders may endorse their choices; however, national leaders should not, otherwise, get involved unless there is a reason involving a candidate embarrassment.
Conservative TEA Party Republican candidates were in full support of ‘repeal ObamaCare, get government out of our lives allowing entrepreneurs to create jobs in the private sector, stop-the-spending, and stop illegal immigration’; issues all supported by a majority of Republicans and Conservative TEA party Republican candidates.
Prior to the November Election, President Obama said, "I am not on the ballot this fall…. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot, every single one of them."
GOP ‘wins’ in the November General Elections results were based more on ‘defeating’ President Obama, his political policies, and his out-of-the-stream radicalism rather than based on Capitol Hill mainstream Republicans leadership proposals.
Will Republicans’ leadership listen now or will they take their own course? The true message in the General Election is clear; ‘Repeal ObamaCare, get governments out of our lives allowing entrepreneurs to create jobs in the private sector, stop-the-spending, and stop illegal immigration’; issues all supported by a majority of Republicans and Conservative TEA party Republican candidates.
