AEI Says Goodbye (Frum Let Go By conservative institute)
frum forum ^ | 03/25/2010 | conservative american news

Posted on 03/25/2010 12:40:34 PM PDT by Free America52

Dear Arthur,

This will memorialize our conversation at lunch today. Effective immediately, my position as a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute is terminated. I appreciate the consideration that delays my emptying of my office until after my return from travel next week. Premises will be vacated no later than April 9.

I have had many fruitful years at the American Enterprise Institute, and I do regret this abrupt and unexpected conclusion of our relationship.

Very truly yours,

David Frum

I won’t even warn him. I don’t care if the door hits him on the way out.

MSMBC probably has openings for sell-out conservatives.

That’s good. I was wondering if there would be any consequences to him for becoming a Bambi Groupie.

Otherwise known as liberals.

David, you're nothing to me now. You're not a brother, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you or what you do. I don't want to see you on television, or read what you write. I don't want you near any conservative conferences. When you see my friends, I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there. You understand?

With apologies to Michael Corleone.

In a few months, when things have calmed down, ask him if he’d like to go fishing. Or hunting with his old friend Dick.

This is a crucial loss for the conservative movement right when we needed the most support.

With David Frum gone, there can be no hope of any more conservative wins.

As a former, and possibly future, supporter of the AEI, I don’t regret his departure one single bit.

Good riddance.

Maybe a little more conservative after April 9.

I’m sure Todd and Sarah would be happy to take him fishing with them on their boat...

HUH? Hardly a loss. This nice moderate needed a wake up call, perhaps this will help, though I doubt it.

Frum seemed to try to get the GOP to go centrist. We don’t need that.

Mark Levin doesn’t care for Frum’s politics, and says it’s good he was let go.
