Ronald Reagan Intimate Speaks Truth to Batwings

In an amazing opinion piece, a Reagan intimate excoriates the current crop of leaders in the Republican Party.

Here's a sample, as published by Los Angeles Times:

The Republican Party that is in such disrepute today is not the party of Reagan. It is the party of Rush Limbaugh, of Ann Coulter, of Newt Gingrich, of George W. Bush, of Karl Rove. It is not a conservative party, it is a party built on the blind and narrow pursuit of power.
The author is no RINO; he is former Congressman Mickey Edwards from Oklahoma, one of the most conservative states in the Union. Edwards was "one of three founding trustees of the Heritage Foundation and national chairman of the American Conservative Union." He also served as an adviser to Ronald Reagan during the 1980 presidential campaign and once held the "fourth-ranking leadership position" in the House.

Read the rest and be enlightened; it explains why people are leaving the Republican Party in droves.
