"In my own mind, I have the same political philosophy I've always had--basically libertarian but tempered by Burkean small-C conservatism. But I am no longer a member of the Republican Party and no longer consider myself part of the "conservative movement." That's not because I changed, but because I believe that they have. The Republican Party of today is not the party of Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan that I was once a member of; it stands for nothing except the pursuit of power as an end in itself, with no concern whatsoever for what is right for the country. In a recent interview with The Economist magazine, I characterized the Republicans as the greedy, sociopathic party. I stand by that," - Bruce Bartlett, economic adviser under Reagan and H.W. Bush.(h/t The Daily Dish)
Nice quote, and good for Bartlett!
Sounds more like Bartlett is sulking about not being invited to the right parties anymore.
No, Stupido, the man has finally comes to his senses. Thirty years of lying about the disaster that is Reaganonomics was too much too take.
Yes,Libs R, don't you know that the all knowing and all merciful Lord Obama has saved the United States from oblivion? Look at what he has done for our economy and even our standing in the world.
He is my new messiah.
(Damn, that was painful to type.)
Stay in that bubble, Paine and Stupido. Complete denial of reality has been standard operating procedure for the last 18 months for the right. And whenever someone dares to question the teabagger orthodoxy, they are automatically trashed and put down.
How many Republicans will be left by 2016? Enough to win Mississippi and Alabama? Sorry, but there simply aren't enough angry white people over the age of 55 to win elections these days.
Dave, I am well under 55 years old and I suspect that the amount of people of ALL colors that the Democrats and Lord Obama are disenfranchising will only serve to swell the ranks of us Americans that want to restore the greatness of our country rather than "transform" it into some Marxist utopia.
(That is assuming that he hasn't found some way to grant blanket amnesty and conferred citizenship to illegal aliens so that they vote for the Democrats by then.)
We shall see. Regardless of what happens this fall, unless the GOP grows some sort of super candidate in a secret lab, I don't see how Obama is defeated. The way the GOP is going, Tom Tancredo could be the next nominee.
