Reagan Advisor Bruce Bartlett's Take On Today's Republican Party

"Basically we're still stuck in the situation we were three years ago and we haven't made any progress at all except that our problems are much worse because of political reasons, because we now have a crazy party in charge of one of the Houses of our Congress and they won't allow anything to happen because it's in their vested interest to make things worse," Bartlett explained in his typically exasperated way. "Plus they have a theory that is completely nuts…. I'm very depressed. [...] The most we can hope for is that a complete crazy person like Newt Gingrich gets the Republican nomination, the Republicans lose so badly that they lose control of the House and don't get control of the Senate and then maybe in a year we can finally talk about doing something rational.

1. Who says the Repukes will gain their sanity back?

 

This downward spiral has been going on for decades and they haven't paid a price for it yet-but we have.

2. The Republican Economic Model Has Never Worked

9 of the last 10 Recessions have occured on their watch, see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/history-of-recessions.html

National DEbt EXPLODES under Republican leadership, see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/national-debt.html

Democratic economic policy outperforms Republican's on EVERY measurable standard, see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/economic-record.html

Job creation craters under Republican leadership and soars when a Democrat is in the White House, see:
http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/job-growth.html

They have, like a dying cult, clung fast to a failed and disproven idealogy, surviving by resorting to fear, and lies. But like all cults often the end comes fast and sudden. Let us hope this is the moment they burn brightest before they flame out.

as frustrated as I get being a liberal in the Democratic Party, it's way better.
