Craig Shirley Says the GOP Has Lost Its Way


Craig Shirley has a provocative opinion piece in the Washington Post today, titled: How the GOP Lost Its Way. The main thesis is that the Country Club Republicans are still dominating the GOP:

"The elites in the GOP have never understood conservatives or Reagan; they’ve found both to be a bit tacky. They have always found the populists’ commitment to values unsettling. To them, adherence to conservative principles was always less important than wealth and power."
