    DAVID FRUM: We Republicans Have Completely Lost Touch With Reality

    My thoughts on this?

    He seems to be very correct, the republican party is a mere shade of its former self, and has moved from right of center to extreme right.

    What caused this?

    If we've moved to the far right then why do we keep getting people like McCain and Romney as our candidates?

    Our party is a reflection of the voters that put them in office.

    IN OTHER WORDS WHERE HAVE THE ESTABLISHMENT REPUBS GONE?

    The ones that rolled over on Dem demands at beck and call.

    Hopefully those days are over. As a labeled terrorist. They are no where close to far right.

    Political deal making. The fact that the wealth is concentrated in very few hands and they can do whatever they want now with little regard to the publics wishes.

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.


    We were pulled very hard to the left after Obama was elected so an equal push back from the right is nothing to be surprised by.

    Obama is actually considered center more than he is considered left.

    No extreme left president would extend tax cuts?

    The problem is they have failed to accomplish anything tangible.
