It is actually a huge step forward for the Republican party that their elected leaders acknowledge that they have a better sense of government than radical activists and Rush. As long as America does not vote the influential members of the Republican "base" into positions of political authority, the Republicans are sending a clear message that they believe their elected politicians to have a better sense of government than people like Mark. Republicans needn't bow down to these influential yet incapable people.

Boehner's willingness to reach across the aisle and compromise with a liberal president despite the backlash from extreme gridlock-happy conservative radicals is yet another sign that the Republicans in authority are exercising their power to govern independently from Limbaugh's opinion, a right given to them by the voters themselves. If the Republican voters suddenly turn around and tell the politicians to listen to these corporate organizations, then that would greatly reduce the influence and credibility of the Republican party.

"Do Republican leaders REALLY want to spend the next two years of a presidential election cycle getting trashed the way they are right now by activists, Tea Party leaders and radio talk show hosts?" From their actions, it appears that they do not care enough about their judgement to let it get in their way of trying to create a better United States.
 
An Open Letter To The Republican Leadership In Congress
**John Hawkins** | Dec 13, 2014 | Townhall

While it would certainly be cathartic to flog the GOP for the lousy omnibus bill House Republicans just passed, it seems more productive to tackle a bigger issue. After a historic, yet unearned (Obama was the real GOP MVP) election victory, isn’t it time for the Republican leadership to try to heal the rift with the base that’s tearing the party apart?

Do Republican leaders REALLY want to spend the next two years of a presidential election cycle getting trashed the way they are right now by activists, Tea Party leaders and radio talk show hosts? Anyone who thinks the base is going to sit down and shut up or that the GOP can thrive over the long-term with this kind of intra-party feuding going on is kidding himself.

So realistically, here’s what the Republican Party leaders need to do to help get everyone back on the same page.

1) They should never, ever, under any circumstances trash their base again. That means if the words "Tea Party, "Senate Conservatives Fund," "Mark Levin," “Rush Limbaugh,” “Club for Growth,” “Heritage Action,” etc., etc., come out of their mouths, then they better be saying something nice at best or neutral at worst. Additionally, staffers who mouth off about the base should be unceremoniously fired. At first, Republican politicians shouldn’t expect to have that favor to be returned, but if you’re a politician who wants unconditional love, go buy a dog.
