Great find.

We've heard the saying that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree but in Mitt's case, it fell far and that's too bad because most of what I've read about George Romney suggests that he was both a good political and business leader. I can't say the same about his son. I obviously never knew his father but it just seems to me that Mitt's going against everything his father stood for politically and that's honestly sad to me.

Goldwater lived to regret the "Southern strategy," particularly since he saw it as setting the precedent for Reagan's embrace of the religious right. In some ways, the religious right is a continuation of the southern strategy. It is no coincidence that the deep south is the heartland of politically active, and radical, fundamentalism. Evangelicals scream bloody murder if you tar them with the segregationist brush, and it would indeed be unfair in many individual cases. Nevertheless, we see in today's tea party that the overall movements and their respective philosophies are in fact parts of the same reactionary whole.

He lived to regret a lot of what he is credited for, particularly the religiousnright. I don't know if he ever walked back his vote against the Civil Rights Act, I wpuld hope he did.

The sad thing is that the kookery he espoused in '64 was rightfully crushed, but now could win the presidency.

Hell, it won the presidency in 2000...
