Articulating Restraint: Conservative Victory & Joe Scarborough
The best example of the type of conservative thinker we need is Joe Scarborough. He has consistently demonstrated his ability to articulate conservative views and to engage both sides in constructive dialogue. Even rarer to find, he has been intellectually consistent.

His ideas about our politicians’ lack of restraint in these three areas should be the playbook for how we articulate conservative views and sell them to the American people.

Beck vs. Scarborough and the Future of the GOP
Two paths forward have emerged for Republicans and they are characterized by the politically similar, Glenn Beck and Joe Scarborough.
