Whither the Republican Party? 
Listening to some Republicans, you would think that Joe Lieberman was the Second Coming! Lieberman, unlike his Democrat colleagues in Congress, supports President Bush on the war in Iraq. For this he was defeated in his bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate in the Connecticut Democrat Primary by another liberal, Ned Lamont, who opposes the war. So, Senator Liberman is going to run in the General Election as an Independent. All of a sudden, Joe Lieberman, a stereotypical left-wing liberal who was Al Gore's running mate in 2000, is being extolled on a daily basis by the likes of Sean Hannity, the popular conservative radio talk-show host, who says if he lived in Connecticut he would vote for Joe Lieberman. Astonishingly, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is supporting Lieberman in the race against Lamont and the Republican nominee, former State Rep. Alan Schlesinger, who they say can't win.

Never mind that Senator Lieberman attacked and opposed the Bush tax cuts, receiving a grade of "F" from the National Taxpayers Union. Never mind that he voted to force the U.S. to comply with the terms of Al Gore's Kyoto global-warming treaty, even though the treaty was never ratified. How about the facts that he voted against allowing oil drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and against extending the moratorium on internet taxation? He voted to filibuster the appeals court nomination of Miguel Estrada and against the Helms amendment to withhold federal funds from schools that bar the Boy Scouts from using their facilities.

All of this as reported in the August 14, 2006 edition of Human Events, — ("Giuliani and Lieberman? Never,") pales in significance when you consider how anti-life Joe Lieberman is. He repeatedly opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion, voted to lift President Reagan's Mexico City policy which denies U.S. foreign aid to groups that perform or promote abortions, voted for a resolution that claimed Roe v. Wade was correctly decided, and voted against Samuel Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court. Lieberman filibustered the constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage. And the list goes on and on.

Now comes Bill Kristol editorializing in the Weekly Standard that "the possibility exists for creating a broader and deeper governing party, with Lieberman Democrats welcomed into the Republican fold, just as Scoop Jackson Democrats became Reaganites in the 1980's. Is it too fanciful to speculate about a 2008 GOP ticket of McCain-Lieberman, or Romney-Lieberman, or Giuliani-Lieberman, or Allen-Lieberman, or Gingrich-Lieberman?"

Too fanciful? It's a nightmare! Why don't we just give up and embrace Hillary Clinton? Why even have a Republican Convention? Why don't we all just get together in a big love-a-thon, throw out the Republican Platform and everything we have built since 1964? When the Scoop Jackson Democrats like Jeane Kirkpatrick and Bill Bennett came aboard with Ronald Reagan it was because they could no longer stomach the left-wing philosophy that had overtaken the Democrat Party. They held principles and values that were inconsistent with those of Eugene McCarthy, Jimmy Carter, Ted Kennedy and their ilk. Now that the reverse has been suggested by Mr. Kristol, one of the most influential neoconservatives in Washington, is the handwriting on the wall? Are Republicans ready to throw in the towel and consider a hard-core liberal like Lieberman regardless of his beliefs along with an assortment of quasi-conservatives like Allen, Romney, and Gingrich, and a couple of liberals like McCain and Giuliani as running mates in 2008?

Human Events refers to a recent analysis in National Review by Kate O'Beirne who pointed out that Giuliani was endorsed for mayor in 1989 by the Liberal Party, which said of him: "He agreed with the Liberal Party's views on affirmative action, gay rights, gun control, school prayer, and tuition tax credits." In 1992, O'Beirne reports, Giuliani said Nelson Rockefeller represented "a tradition in the Republican Party I've worked to rekindle — the Rockefeller, Javits, Lefkowitz tradition."

Is that what YOU want — a return to the liberal Rockefeller "tradition" that was defeated by Ronald Reagan?
