Poster children: Michael Bloomberg, Colin Powell.
Powell thinks he’s a Republican, and the GOP has an “identity problem.” But the “identity problem” is Powell’s – voting for Obama is neither Republican nor “moderate.” Today’s Republican establishment isn’t to the right of Reagan. It is to the left of the man who won one of the largest landslides in history with an unequivocal conservative agenda.
And these are just the politicians. Once you add ‘journalists’ like David Brooks, David Frum, and Colin Friendersdorf, the hits just keep on comin’.
