Waiting For Reagan

What has happened to the GOP? What do they stand for anymore? Has the Tea Party taken over? I have been trying to wrap my hands around a GOP come lately that doesn't stand for the things the Old GOP used too.

Well, It seems David Brooks may feel the same way. Here is his article from the NYT. where he openly questions the motivations of todays GOP.

Here is a taste.

If the Republican Party were a normal party, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. It is being offered the deal of the century: trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few hundred million dollars of revenue increases.
A normal Republican Party would seize the opportunity to put a long-term limit on the growth of government. It would seize the opportunity to put the country on a sound fiscal footing. It would seize the opportunity to do these things without putting any real crimp in economic growth.

Brooks is probably one of the last Republicans who doesn't fear the retribution from the likes of Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity bravely goes on to "call out" the GOP leadership, posing some pretty tough questions in his article.

Hear, hear Mr. Brooks.
