Lets Just Say It: The Republicans are the Problem

This is the headline of an op-ed in the April 27,2012 Washington Post written by Thomas H. Mann of the Brookings Institution and Norman J. Ornstein, resident scholar of the American Enterprise Institute, the flagship think tank of today’s Conservative movement.  In the article, Mann and Ornstein say the following:

“We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.”

When somebody with the impeccable Conservative credentials is acknowledging the obvious – that the lunatics have taken charge of the asylum in the GOP, it is time to stop playing around and recognize that a radical reactionary coup d’état has, for all intents and purposes, taken over real control of the Republican Party and is threatening to do the same to the entire country in November.

They have expanded their theme into a new book, which I am currently reading.  I HIGHLY recommend that all voters read this before going into their voting booth on November 6th.
