Frum on GOP Brand

Conservative blogger David Frum sums it up on Frum Forum.

The identification of the GOP as mouthpiece for the selfish interests of the wealthy is a stubborn image, difficult to overcome at the best of times. For three years, however, Republican leaders have been doing their utmost to confirm the stereotype – and to quash and quell any attempt to counter that stereotype. Did we really spend months and months arguing that one of the things most wrong with the US tax code is that the poor and unemployed pay too little tax? Yes we did. Head shake. Face slap.

The most devastating and accurate commentary on the current state of the Republican party continues to come from conservative writers. Frum is one of the best.
