After reading Dan Milbank’s piece this morning I decided it was time for a blog.
My life has been consumed by politics. As a youngster I passed out Republican literature at the polls (when you could get closer than 300 feet), helped local candidates run for office, started Teenage Republican Clubs and the list goes on.
The motivation was to see a strong two party system. It appeared that goal was being achieved and long came the internal battle of 1964 – not unlike that underway. But today it is but even worse.
To see people who are likely registered Republicans stand and cheer when they learned Speaker Boehner “a good man” had resigned is unbelievable (what happen to good manners) on the eve of a presidential election – one that is so important to our nation and the Republican Party.
When will these people come to their senses? When will civility return? Soon I hope or Republicans will see the chance of electing a president or governor in our state end up like 1964.
