“Unlike their voters, who are in the country party and adhere tenaciously to their values, Republican politicians are eager to join the aristocracy, Codevilla observes:

Republican and Democratic office holders and their retinues show a similar presumption to dominate and fewer differences in tastes, habits, opinions, and sources of income among one another than between both and the rest of the country. They think, look, and act as a class. . . . Differences between Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas are of degree, not kind.

Rush Limbaugh read extensively from Codevilla’s article on his radio program on Tuesday, and he correctly noted that Republican politicians’ position on the edge of the aristocracy makes them extremely insecure and manipulable by the Democrats:

The Republicans want to be even more accepted in the ruling class. They want to be even more powerful. They want to be considered part of it. They want to be in the clique.”

— S.T. Karnick – American Thinker


“Republicans?  Everybody’s lost their soul to progressivism – we don’t have a choice anymore…  This is your choice — Progressive Lite or Progressive Extra Strength”

“We’ve been tricked into boxing ourselves into the R and D and defending those sides at all costs without engaging our brain.  All the while they have morphed into the exact same thing… There used to be an option in this country…”

“We’re being divided, we’re being put in boxes, kept here kept there, they’re dividing us. If they can get 5 % here 7% there, pitt each other against each other, they keep their power.  America, you’re being used.”
