Bush killed the GOP with militarism and Big Government , and Romney is just the latest dead RINO to suffer the consequences of aligning with the GOP establishment. Bush won because his opponents were also rich white males, and because they were even more insufferable than Bush. Al Gore was an obvious pathological liar with a White House obsession. John Kerry was an arrogant airhead who traded on a phony war hero story that belied his backstabbing anti-war medal-throwing start in politics. Bush won barely, only because Hillary Clinton wasn't available yet.

William F. Buckley once noted that he was 19 when the Cold War began at the Yalta conference. The year the Berlin Wall came down, he became a senior citizen. In other words, he explained, anti-Communism was a defining feature of conservatism his entire adult life. Domestically, meanwhile, the right was largely a "leave me alone coalition": Religious and traditional conservatives, overtaxed businessmen, Western libertarians, and others fed up with government social engineering and economic folly. The foreign policy battle against tyrannical statism abroad only buttressed the domestic antagonism toward well-intentioned and occasionally democratic statism at home.
