11th Commandment and its abuse

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/06/2006

One thing that has become almost a certainty in the Republican Party is the abuse of Reagan's 11th Commandment. Reagan basically said that Republicans should not speak ill of each other. The idea was that in the end the Republicans are on the same team.

Tell that to the small tent people.

I do not know what it was like before I got involved in politics (about 1995) but I have noticed since I became involved that almost every time someone trieds to invoke the 11th Commandment it is because they (or their candidate) have a lot they don't want discussed. Other times it is someone who has thrown a ton of "mud" and just as the retaliations are about to make them look bad they say, "Hey, remember the 11th Commandment. I'm sorry. Let's move forward."

Michele Bachmann has had the most misleading campaign. Now that she is being called to the carpet for her lies, distortions and half-truths she sends out a message in her newsletter.
In our interests to see the campaign for the endorsement remain positive and focused on the issues, we've set up a website encouraging candidates, campaigns and the public to keep the messages positive. Check it out and sign Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment: Thou shall never speak badly of another Republican.


Remember to spread the word too, because Republicans have to stick together this year.
Michele, positivity includes the truth (which your campaign and you as an individual seem absent of).

Bachmann is the latest addition to the "Reagan's Commandment, so you don't talk bad about me." She has the most legitimate dirt against her...so it comes as no surprise that she suddenly want everyone to follow "Thou shall NEVER speak badly of another republican. Run on your own merit."

The reason I say this Commandment is abused is that the people like Bachmann distort facts, brazenly lie and then want everyone else to limit their responses to, well, no response. The least moral people in the party try to invoke this "commandment" upon others. The most moral people in the party simply live it.

You decide who is pleading to other to follow this (Bachmann) and who is actually living it (Esmay). And, yes, it seems the most disingenuous candidate in the state (Bachmann) is trying to invoke silence from others.

Only to allow her free reign to continue lying.

people who invoke Reagan's 11th commandment can never seem to remember that in 1976 Reagan ran against Gerald Ford (the sitting president) for the GOP endorsement and nearly won.

I always find it amusing when Senator Bachmann invokes Ronald Reagan. Reagan as governor publicly opposed prop 6 - which would have banned gay teachers in CA.
