Conservative Movement Abandons Republican Party

Conservative movement leader Richard Viguerie has called for a mass resignation of Republican Party leaders, or else. It's hard to tell if Viguerie is genuinely unhappy with the GOP leadership or is just covering his ass, since it's already clear that the Republicans "will crash in flames in November" with or without Viguerie's support.

MANASSAS, Va., May 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Republican Party must have new leadership, or conservatives will continue to withhold support, and the Party will crash in flames in November, Richard A. Viguerie, publisher of, said. "Accordingly, Republican Party leaders must resign."

"Leaders in the White House, the Congress, and the Republican National Committee and its affiliates, along with most Republican leaders at the state level, have failed – or outright betrayed – the conservative voters who put them in their positions," Viguerie said.

"The result is that the Republican Party's brand has become a negative to an extent greater than in the Watergate era, perhaps even worse than in the days of Herbert Hoover." (link)
