Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

Deroy Murdock has an article up in the National Review today. It articulates some of the frustrations I've had with the GOP for the last 14 years. I highly recommend you read it yourself, it's worth the 3 minutes it will take up in your life.

My favorite excerpt:

"Now, what about those whom Obama and his supporters vanquished? What the Republican party badly needs is a Night of the Long Knives....

...Nevertheless, Bush is the GOP’s Jimmy Carter, a weak bumbler who embarrassed his constituents, betrayed his philosophical movement, sank his party, and eventually surrendered the White House to the opposition, this time led by the Senate’s Number One liberal, still in his first term. Bush should retire quietly to Texas, where he can drive his truck, chop wood, and avoid the limelight for the balance of his natural existence.

Bush could use someone to sweep the leaves at his ranch. I nominate Karl Rove. Why on Earth is he always on TV spewing advice?

Excellent article and great post. I think if the Republican party remembered its duty to the base, we'd see many "Paleoconservatives" return to it.
