What's wrong with the Republican Party: A Case Study

Mark Alexander:
With Republican majorities in the House and Senate, and a Republican in the White House, the GOP should have picked up where Ronald Reagan left off - leading the nation as constitutional constructionists. Unfortunately, a cadre of constitutional obstructionists has split the Republican Party, diminished party loyalty and taken public support for the President and Congress to historic lows.

Yes, Republican principals have shown great leadership on national-security issues -- most notably prosecuting the war with Jihadistan. However, they have failed to articulate why the Bush Doctrine of Pre-Emption is, clearly, the best method for defending our nation against catastrophic attacks by Islamofascists. Weak-kneed Republicans have been run over by Senate Demo Leader Harry Reid, House Demo Leader Nancy Pelosi, and their gang of traitors, who have succeeded in undermining the nation's resolve in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

On the domestic front, however, Republicans have failed miserably, particularly in holding the line on government growth, spending and regulation. Conservatives expected President George W. Bush and his congressional majorities to lead the charge on behalf of individual liberty, the restoration of constitutional limits on government and the promotion of free enterprise and traditional American values, as outlined in The Patriot's Statement of Principles. They have not.
It's not looking good in November for Conservatives... or Republicans. Too many people on the right are fed up with the out of control spending. Problem is, this is what we'll get. I say it's worth it, IF it means that the GOP finally figures out that it needs to get back to conservative priorities.
