Message to Republican Leadership: Grow Some Backbone

Today, Rush vocalized pretty much what I've been feeling for the past few weeks. That being complete mystification over what appears to be the Republican majority once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. By coercing, intimidating and/or otherwise forcing some Republicans to 'moderate' on important agenda items, the Democrats appear to be pulling off the impossible: imposing majority influence from a minority position. So tell me, why vote Republicans into the majority if they'll only wind up buckling under the pressure of the smarmy liberal machine? I'm far from the only Conservative asking myself this question, so let this be a warning to GOP leadership: grow some backbone, stand by the agenda and face down the obstructionists or you may find that your Conservative base isn't there for you at the next election.
