    The GOP went with the moderate arguably in every election since 1988, but certainly with a moderate in the last election...that didn't work. It didn't even get Powell's support. What then do you suggest, out leftist the Dems?

    Nope. Contemporary usage of the term (this is not counting the various references to a ''neoconservatism" throughout the first half of the 20th century in political thought) came from Michael Harrington in 1973 relating to criticism of the Great Society. For many of these earlier Neoconservatives, foreign affairs was something they could not coherently agree upon-except for being liberal anti-communists, nor was it exactly their specialty.

    Re: Powell cautions against a GOP slide to the right

    Should we count Powell's slide to the left?

    Powell never slid to the left, he's always been left of center.

    The Republicans needed him because the media demands token blacks wherever they can find a spot to put one in. Powell was perfect for the job. Not on the right, that makes the media happy, not too black, that makes the media nervous, and he's usually good at following orders, like a good Tom should.

    Oh. You mean "supply side economics", which has been used by several presidents, including Kennedy, though he didn't call it that. Supply side economics is the policy of reducing tax rates to stimulate the investment that's needed to create and grow businesses and thus create jobs.

    Neither recession was due to supply side economics. Nor does supply side economics forbid recessions, which are an ineluctable aspect of any free market. Bush's recession was due to the confluence of the economy towards a recession then pushed by his tax increase, a notably anti-supply side action. Clinton, famously anti-economic freedom, also eventually saw a recession start on his tenure. The Second Bush fixed the Clinton recession by...applying supply side economic policies, and later the confluence of the economy and some incredibly stupid laws passed as far back as the Wilson Administration, not to mention FDR, Carter, and Clinton, caused the banking/mortgage failure.

    Face facts: recessions are not caused by the government allowing the citizen to keep more of his own money.

    Nonsense.

    WWI wrecked their economies.

    True enough. In modern liberaldoublespeak what it really means is taking any dollar they can from whoever earned is and handing it to a politician to buy votes with.

    Naturally, state lotteries, gasoline taxes, cigarette taxes, beer and liquor taxes, sales taxes, plastic grocery bag taxes, soda taxes, fat food taxes, etc, are all geared towards milking the poor, not the wealthy, and they're all areas the liberal politician is exploring to find more revenue.

    Well, the GOP doesn't really have anything resembling principles. The GOP is nearly identical to the Democrats.

    Powell wants to pretend, for reasons that probably have to do with sucking up to the new Kenyah president, that the problems the GOP is having are the result of the GOP NOT moving far enough to the left to scrape off the few Americans it had left in the party.
