House Divided?

Here’s a piece from last week’s (take that for what it’s worth) detailing the rift between former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, and his successor, Tom DeLay. One is an idea-logue, the other a politico. You decide who you’d prefer running the show.

DeLay’s ensured a governing majority for at least the rest of the decade when most Texans were too timid to bother (and, frankly, when most of us just assumed Armey had died or was sick or something).

Armey has a big mouth and... seems to be missing having a platform for his big mouth.

I’ll take the conservative guy delivering the votes right now over the conservative guy with the big mouth right now, thanks.

It’s not surprising that Salon likes the guy with the big mouth who doesn’t like the guy they hate, though.

Whats the point of having a republican/conservative majority if that majority is used to advance anti-conservative goals? i.e. more medicare entitlements, more wasted education dollars, more money to farm subsidies which harm farmers, etc.

I’m all for conservatives showing a mean side that Democrats are so good at doing, but not if it means abandoning limited government. Why can’t we have both principle and prudent application of those principles?
