Conservatives must remember conservatism

Editors, Washington Examiner

Battling the Left is necessary work for conservatism, but it can't become its heart. The appeal of celebrities willing to tear mercilessly into the Left is clear, but also dangerous, especially as some of those chosen to do so never bothered to ground themselves in real conservatism.

Christie Abandoned by Conservatives

Tony Lee, Breitbart

To survive a potential GOP primary--if he even makes it there--and what will be thrown at him in a potential general election from the left and the MSM if he were to get the nomination, Christie will need a conservative base that is a lot more fired up than it is about him now.
