In Part I of "No Horse in the Race…" I gave testimony of Diane Tebelius’s disengenuous position on human life. Some readers might be interested in her position on other issues as well as her party management style.
Inspite of her best efforts to declare to the media that the Republican Party was united with her "One Team, One Mission" theme for the convention last May, the truth is, we were, and still are, a divided party. Coming out of that convention, I wrote a recap, entitled "Two Teams/Two Missions at the Washington State Republican Convention", you can read it at The Reagan Wing.
The divide is partly due to the fact that party leaders like Diane Tebelius either do not understand or do not share Republican principles. This is clearly the case when it came to her defending the Republican platform that came out of her "united" convention. She had a very tough time reconciling it with her own views, which she tried her best to hide, when she faced the press and eventually appeared on the Lou Dobbs show. The state party platform made national news when it called for a restoration of the original intent of the Fourteenth Amendment. I wrote this piece at the time defending the platform, since she couldn’t give it any more than "Oh, this is a hot issue, and Republicans are just trying to grapple with it." It’s understandable that many Americans do not understand the intent of the Fourteenth Amendment (especially if they attended public schools), but Diane made no effort to understand the activists in her party who wrote the amendment to the platform, that was overwhelmingly passed by the grassroots activists in the party who actually read the constitution and believe in it. But the information is available to anyone looking for the truth.
But Diane does not appear to be interested in the truth. Only supressing it.
