7. I think he's saying by today's impposible teaparty standards

pretty much every Republican prior to the 1990s would appear to be a crypto-fascists commie loving Nazi to the tea party crowd. Not because they were "liberal" but because they had a few liberal policy ideas and produced a functioning government. When raising the debt ceiling, infrastructure spending, clean air and water are liberal ideals then suddenly Nixon and Reagan look liberal. They aren't. There was a time when pretty much all voters, legislators didn't want polluted water. It makes you wonder what idiot would want polluted water and then you listen to a tea party member speak and you go "ah, that idiot."
