It?s not about a Republican whose wife is cheating on him, but one whose country is being taken away from him, and who?s too cowardly to do anything about it.

part of the problem is that the neocons call themselves conservatives but are not, at least in terms of the traditional sense in the USIt's explained in Buchanan's book from the Bush43 era, "where the right went wrong"Since gingrich was thrown off the back of the bus for having dangerous ideas on things like term limits and balanced budgets, we've had 2 disasters in Hastert and Boehner, whose function seems more to ensure that GOP congressmen continue to get elected rather than to enact any conservative legislation or cut the size of government.At least Hastert had the "Hastert Rule", where legislation would not move in the House unless the majority of republicans supported it. Boehner has put together a coalition of dems and moderate republicans and ignores the conservatives except when forced to by an outright rebellion, such as that over amnesty.
