FOLLOWING THE G.O.P DEBACLE

Monday, May 4, 2009 , Posted by LATINO EVENTS Y TESPIS MAGAZINE at 11:00 PM


I am putting together a couple of links from the New York Times. The first comes from Olympia Snowe, a moderate republican and one of the very few republican senators remaining in the Northeast.

We Didn’t Have to Lose Arlen Specter

says Olympia Snowe. The question everyone is asking is if she may be the next one to drop the bomb. That will mean a total implosion for the already seriously wounded elephant. She is feeling the pain of been part of a party becoming, more and more, a right wing paradise. Read her opinion piece here.

The other article deals with the coices facing the G.O.P. To be or not to be.

G.O.P. Debate: A Broader Party or a Purer One?

Big question. But it seems that the elephant knows the answer:

a purer party it is. Not my cup of tea, but certainly their choice to make.

Progressives like me are elated at the turns of events. After 8 years of rampant abuses, (plus decades building the Reagan party) is good to know that they will be out of commission for a while.
Will a third party come out of all this G.O.P debacle. A moderate center right party? or will Obama and the democrats convince the moderate right to set quarters on the blue side of things.

It looks like a strong possibility to me if we just think of the younger generations squarely planted on the right side of history on social issues, civil rights and more. And they voted for Obama by a 30 percentage points of difference!. If we add the urban classes, professionals et al., you get the picture.
