There is a specter haunting America: the specter of a saner, updated version of Ross Perot. He is lurking out there, ready to ride the free-floating anger and distrust of Washington. He is out there now in one of his homes or private jets, getting madder by the day. He is large of ego, full of money and cranky in mien.
When he enters the arena, hell say that Washingtonians, all of them, are a bunch of failures. Over the past five years, Washington has tried to reform Social Security, immigration, health care and energy policy. All of these efforts have either failed or are close to failure thousands of people working millions of hours and in all likelihood producing nothing.

I wish I had those three minutes of my life back after reading that crap.
If I read that right, the author wants Obama to campaign instead of govern for the next three years?
the gop had better get their act together and fast or this will happen. maybe they want this to happen?
Final proof (if any more proof were needed), that David Brooks is indded a stark raving, lunatic.
Quick, bring on the men in long white coats.
David Brooks, so in love with Obama that he just cant help himself. They both had wet dreams reading Nebur, the well known German philosopher, dont ya know.
The strategy is not to let them know you have one. I’m sure the blow will come last minute right before the election in november when the rats are reasurred they have divided us.
The Teas already fell for it. We must support conservatism not parties!
“The Teas already fell for it.”
When was that?
Ah yes. Perot initiated the era of Democrat Rule. Perot could never be elected yet managed to convince frustrated people that the Reform Party was viable. Clinton won a plurality of the public in his first run. Smart move by the Obambots to divide the non-left voters. Spin the Tea Party; cultivate division with Astroturf; obfuscate a Republican message.
Yeah. Like how that tecnqiuque worked for the Democrats in New Jersey and Massachusetts. Not!
The independents in both NJ and Mass, who were supposed to take votes away from the Repunloican candidate, ended up getting clobberedd but good. The independent candidate in New Jersey, Daggett, who was polling as high as 18% just a few weeks before the elections, ended up getting only 5.8% of the vote, and lost most of his supporters to the Republican Charlie Christie, who won by a solid 4.3%.
This is not 1992.
Voters nowadays, are not as stupid as you think they are.
First, who is the “us” they are dividing? If it’s a reference to Republicans vs. Tea Party Conservatives, they are already quite divided in general. Republicans need to decide if they will be Conservative or not.
On the other hand, it only takes a few hotheads like I’ve seen on other threads that want to throw Sarah Palin under the bus for campaigning for McCain to sink our efforts before we even get started good.
Allow for some disagreements and differences, without compromising your pivotal values. The principles are the key, but insisting on perfect conformity will short circuit all we want to accomplish. The Leftists KNOW this.
Blah blah blah. He say ‘us’ like there is some commonality between RINOs/Republicarats and conservatives. Not hardly.
This anything but Clinton mantra that the GOP has been spouting for 20+ years to scare the rank-n-file is one of the reasons we are now in the shape we are and one of the reasons we end up with GW and MCCain.
