If I were a Republican (I’m struggling here now), I’d wonder why this election is even close. With the economy in the tank and Americans in a funk, why doesn’t Mitt Romney have a huge lead over President Obama?
Jeb Bush has it figured out. He told reporters that his father and Ronald Reagan would have a “hard time” fitting in with today’s Tea Party GOP.
The Republicans’ problem is that, at the very moment when Americans might embrace a more conservative approach to government spending, they suspect the GOP is in the iron control of a cadre of uncompromising, unreasonable and irrational political ayatollahs who would rather burn down the Capitol than see Obama – and thereby the country – succeed.
Pat McCrory, who seems like a sensible fellow, has clearly caught the fever. Agenda 21, Pat? Really?
