Tom Tancredo wants Dick Wadhams to try to unite Republicans, fringe liberty groups

Tom Tancredo says in a note posted on Facebook that he would be happy to register as a Republican in an effort to bring the Colorado GOP and fringe liberty groups together.

He suggests that Dick Wadhams, the chair of the Colorado GOP, and leaders of the liberty groups meet and try to seek common grounds. This strikes me as an exercise in futility. There always will be fringe groups, the major parties' candidates always will try to appeal to them up to a point, and both parties already are led and governed by politicians whose views are on the fringes of the mainstream voting public.

Rather than appeal to the small fringe groups, the parties are seeking to bring in the much large groups of independents. In 2010, the GOP won back a majority of independents after losing them in 2008. In 2012 both parties will fight over the independents, not the extremists.
