“The Road Not Taken” by David Brooks (TIMES, 7/19/11)

     David Brooks thinks this might be “a glorious moment in Republican history.”  If they “sweep the next election,” it could “herald in an era of conservative greatness.”      

     The idea that “greatness” could come from the antics of John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell, the Three Stooges of the military-industrial complex, is laughable. 

     But, how could this shallow media pundit, who still believes there are “practical conservatives in the GOP,” do a real analysis of the political situation now prevailing in the USA?

     Haven’t the “Gods of the New Dawn” set a squad of mud-slinging faux presidential candidates on the loose to demonize Obama?  Then, at the right time, won’t those “practical conservatives” hailed by Brooks reveal their actual candidate–David H. Petraeus?

     Conservative greatness will be the strong central government that Alexander Hamilton wanted, run in the 21st century by a managerial elite capable of manipulating elections.
