"Barone is a big government NeoCon. Like all big government Republicans he is only upset because his team is out of power. He has no regard for the health of the county. And he has negative regard for the rights of the individual."
Barone might not be quite as conservative as you or I are, but he is right of center. I have read his columns for years because he is generally very astute and insightful.
I don't recall him being a big government guy (he generally writes about politics, not so much issues), he does care about the country and he deserves better than this.
