Quote of the Day

February 17th, 2014 - 5:00 pm

Anger is not an agenda. And outrage, as a habit, is not even conservative. Outrage, resentment, and intolerance are gargoyles of the Left. For us, optimism is not just a message — it’s a principle. American conservatism, at its core, is about gratitude, and cooperation, and trust, and above all hope.

It is also about inclusion. Successful political movements are about identifying converts, not heretics. This, too, is part of the challenge before us.

—Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) as quoted by Peter Wehner of Commentary today in “The Tea Party’s Gift to American Politics.”

I love it when a concise, articulate statement for conservatism penetrates the obfuscation and rancor of leftist media and gets some public attention. Good for Senator Lee. Hope he has more to say.
