Meltdown!

August 12th, 2007at 12:46pm Posted by Eli

The Economist sees the American conservative movement in deep, deep trouble. Great stuff, plus they use “cock-a-hoop” in a sentence.

The last paragraph:

The Republicans have failed the most important test of any political movement – wielding power successfully. They have botched a war. They have splurged on spending. And they have alienated a huge section of the population. It is now the Democrats’ game to win or lose.

This is particularly ironic in light of the fact that one of the favorite Republican accusations against Democrats is that they just obstruct and complain without offering solutions. But the reality is that that’s what the Republicans do. They’re very good at savaging Democrats, but actual governance is completely beyond them – mostly because their nifty sound-bite ideas don’t actually work, and posturing is not a substitute for problem-solving.

America would do well to remember that.
