Methinks SMyles refers to Ron Paul, who--unlike Romney--actually called for shrinking the size of the federal government. No, not just reducing the rate of increase in spending. Actually cutting back.

The Republican Establishment, predictably, called this "loony."

Why? Because they are essentially on the same page as the Democrats, with a few vague, mumbled words of pseudo-patriotism to continue gulling their base.

Yes I was referring to Paul.

Are you talking about the Democrat Lite, "electable", Governor Romneycare pushed by Ann Coulter?
Many ideas presented as "new" are just rehashes of old ideas that have been tried before -- and have failed before.

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...
