I watched David Stockman, Ronald Reagan's former director of the Office of Management and Budget, give an interview on "The Ed Show." He basically aligns with the Democratic position now, questioning bloated military spending and Republican efforts to gut Social Security and other social programs. It just shows how far rightward the the Republicans have moved under the Tea Party. It's rather sad that the GOP has fallen so far. It's a shame, but Republicans are no longer a party of reasonable people.
