The Anti-Reagans in the Republican Party
- [The neocons have transformed the Republican Party into a confederacy of dunces which is anti-conservative and anti-American at the core. Reagan would have been appalled by George W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and their neoconservative handlers and script writers.]
The Cannons contend that far from being a militant crusader, Reagan was a prudent leader — prepared to compromise with Congressional Democrats, hesitant to embroil the United States in foreign wars, eager to maintain America’s alliances and acutely aware of the limits of American power. Their sharp and discriminating account suggests that in seeking to win one for the Gipper, Bush, like not a few conservatives, has substituted a cartoon for reality.
