    "Many of those who fought for years at the side of Ronald Reagan say they no longer recognize traditional GOP values in the new Republican Party. Fighting for the rich, after all, is not the same as championing the right."

    Sounds right to me. I read some quotes from former Reagan advisors who suggest that the contemporary GOP has it all wrong when it comes to solutions to fixing the economy.

    If there is no implosion, I wouldn't be surprise if things got worse 20 years down the road for Republicans. Even the ones we view as extreme could be seen as moderates decades from now.
