Viguerie: GOP 'Pledge' merits 1 ½ cheers - Richard Viguerie says the GOP congressional 'Pledge to America' is a step in the right direction, but warns, "This new promise is mostly about Republicans promising not to do things they relished doing in the last decade. If the GOP does not push hard in the new Congress to return America to small, constitutional government, expect most Republican incumbents to be seriously challenged by Tea Party candidates in 2012."
