Republicans have lost their way when it comes to many core GOP principles and may be in jeopardy heading into the fall elections, Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. says. (click here for the full article)
It merely echos the sentiment in the former post about conservative pundits questioning Bush. Now Republicans are saying that the GOP has lost its way.

I would agree with him because less government and international engagement is the complete reverse of the wire-tapping and "do what we say or we're gonna bring somethin' bad down on you" diplomacy that the GOP currently deals in.

Riddle me this. Again, I ask are those on the right just now figuring this out? I mean was there some big GOP party over the weekend and all of them were forced to take truth serum?

I'm tired, and I'm jaded. I'm not particularly impressed with the soul searching now that we've made irreversible error after irreversible error.

These were questions and issues we should have been discussing in 2000 and 2004. However, the nation was so struck with extremist "either/or" politicking that being critical was virtually equated with an act of high treason.

It's a bit too late now as the mistakes of the current administration cannot be reversed. Let's just hope that for the November elections and from here on folks keep questioning.

When is it ever anti-American to question and debate?
