Now I’m concerned

Republicans seem to be shooting themselves in the foot. First it was ANWR. Next it was spending. Now it’s taxes. I’m not worried about the ’06 and ’08 elections because of what happened on Tuesday. What I am worried about is that the Republicans seem to be ignoring their conservative principles (or at least the principles of those who elected them in the first place). The party right now has no backbone, no spine. Where are the days of Ronald Reagan, “Tear Down that Wall”, the “Evil Empire” and ambitious supply-side economics when dealing with a DEMOCRATIC congress? Where are the days of Newt Gingrich duking it out with President Clinton over the budget, welfare reform, and tax cuts? Republicans today seem to have lost their energy and their spine. That’s what has me worried.
