    Boehner stresses big tent in wake of Scozzafava election shakeup
    ::
       Other Endorsed Independent Projects -> Real Republicans

    The Hill

    By Bridget Johnson 

    Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) shrugged off the notion Sunday that the Scozzafava shakeup in New York was a sign of growing backlash against moderates in the Republican Party while stressing the need to show conservative activists that the GOP was the party for them.

    Boehner was grilled on CNN's "State of the Union" about the Saturday decision of Dede Scozzafava, the Republican nominee for the NY-23 special election to fill the House seat vacated by Army Secretary John McHugh, to pull out of the race in the face of shrinking poll numbers against Conservative Party challenger Doug Hoffman.

    Boehner said the case was highly unusual because Scozzafava was selected by local party chairmen.

    "Clearly she would be on the left side of our party," said Boehner, who had financially supported the campaign of the New York assemblywoman. "We accept moderates in our party; we want moderates in our party."

    The minority leader, when pressed by host John King, didn't link the shakeup to pressure by the conservative "Tea Party" movement, citing his participation at rallies in Bakersfield, Calif., and Ohio. "I've worked with these people, and what they're concerned about is the growing size of government," Boehner said.

    I am glad I sent this unprincipled man a personal note of "Your fired" when your next election comes up.

    Dear John John, ....(Boehner) HEY, It always was a big tent. Its those like Scozzafava that want to shrink it. And to the extent RNC is under the same delusions, so do they. Let's admit this was not the Republican Party's finest hour. I think we've all encountered these type of drivers, you know, they lean right while turning left.

    Future of GOP and Moderate Republicans Uncertain [GOP "Struggling To Find Its Identity"]

    NYTimes

    November 1, 2009

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- In a Republican Party struggling to find its identity, the surprise withdrawal of the chosen GOP candidate for a New York congressional race -- forced by a rising conservative upstart -- renews a lingering national debate: Are moderates welcome in today's Grand Old Party?

    The question became even more relevant Sunday when the ex-candidate, state Assemblywoman Dierdre Scozzafava, threw her support behind the Democrat in the race rather than the Conservative Party candidate favored by fellow Republicans.

    The GOP leadership insisted on Sunday political TV talk shows the party is strong and inclusive while Democrats described a Republican party out of touch with the people.

    ''We accept moderates in our party, and we want moderates in our party. We cover a wide range of Americans,'' said Republican House Leader John Boehner in an interview on CNN's ''State of the Union.''

    But in New York's rural 23rd Congressional District, the message was clear early: Scozzafava was too moderate; some even used the dreaded ''L'' word -- liberal. Her endorsement of Democrat Bill Owens over Conservative Doug Hoffman only reinforced that perception.
