Maddow, Hayes Mock GOP’s Move to Center as They Push Democrats to the Left | Mediaite: "Talk about whistling past the graveyard.
In a move that has been a long time coming, establishment Republicans in Congress are pushing back – hard – against the conservative activist groups that agitated for a disastrous government shutdown and are now lobbying Republicans in Congress to oppose a bipartisan budget agreement.
Those right-leaning groups have contributed significantly to the perceptual hurdles the GOP is facing in their efforts to appeal to a broader electorate. House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) recent outbursts at conservative groups, who he subtly accused of being more concerned with reaching their own fundraising goals than the health of the party, represent the party’s biggest figures dragging the GOP back toward the American center."
