'Me Too' Republicans

The fact is republicans are so close to being democrats these days that its a matter of degree of wrong policy vs. the policy itself. Reagan was a stark contrast to Carter and a stark contrast to any republican rival and ran on principle not polls. A rove would have been unthinkable to Reagan. Anderson and Bush were not similar to Reagan. Obama-Hillary and any dem running would be ideologically very close to one another. People need stark contrasts. The FAR RIGHT is BS talk. The far right is exactly what- a constitutional conservative? If thats far right then the far right is RIGHT about everything becuase the RINOS and dems IGNORE the constitution and pretend to support it.
Many ideas presented as "new" are just rehashes of old ideas that have been tried before -- and have failed before. So it is no surprise that the recent "Growth and Opportunity Project" report to the Republican National Committee is a classic example of what previous generations called "Me too" Republicanism.

These are Republicans who think that the key to winning elections is to do more of what the Democrats are doing. In effect, they say "me too" on issues such as immigration, in hopes of gaining more new votes than they lose by betraying their existing supporters.

In the wake of last...
