Sho-Co Repub: No Compromise

Chuck Reitz, Shoshone County Republicans Chair, told the crowd that conservatives should not compromise with moderates or Democrats when it comes to policy. Policy is principal, he said, and you don't negotiate with what you believe is wrong. While Conservative radio talk show personality Rush Limbaugh has been quoted saying the same thing, Reitz didn't use the former Monday Night Football talking head to illustrate his point. Instead, he used the New Testament's central figure. "Jesus didn't compromise,' Reitz said. "He was always straight, and he knew where to go"/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Would Jesus be a conservative Republican in Kootenai County?
