Reply to Derek wk 3 spinoff

Derek aired this:

Think carefully about this one. You can't deny the Democratic Party is not what it was 40 years ago. Since 1972, the party has actively driven away voters who lean conservative. That's why the South has gone Republican.

I think what we are really seeing is the Republican Party pulling itself apart. On social issues, it has steadily drifted further and further right. In its current incarnation with Dubya as the party figurehead, it has crested breaker after breaker deeper into the Sea of Financial Woe. Yes, any war is going to build a debt, but Bush is almost certainly the only holder of the Oval Office in at least a century not to have vetoed a single spending bill. The GOP is not the party it was even 20 years ago. The elder Bush was a conservative; Dubya is a Neo-Con. Care to guess which one I respect more?
