Powerline highlights a post from Betsy's Page about Howard Kurtz' profile of Brit Hume in the Washington Post. It wasn’t the profile so much as an anecdote cited that woke me up about why I am so frustrated with our government today.
"Hume says he came to feel "out of step with ABC News' natural tendencies." He recalls challenging an assignment about how the first President Bush "isn't doing anything" by saying: "Has it ever occurred to you that this guy's a Republican and Republicans don't believe that government is the solution to all the country's problems?"
And it isn't the people in the anecdote. It is this line:
'Republicans don't believe that government is the solution to all the country's problems.'
If you take that one statement as a definition of being a Republican, who in our government today qualifies? I'm still trying to find one.
