"Have you ever seen Trump express an authentic human emotion -- besides anger and self-love I mean?  I can't.  Have we ever seen him really smile, apart from that satisfied grin of his?  And laugh.  I can't ever remember…"

""Self-reflection"? I think Trump understands that concept worse than he understands history. The man is one enormous defense mechanism. "

"I see yours as a wish but not a practical option.  It would take agreement from Republicans, and that is not on the horizon.  At least not House members."

"Insightful post, Ted. Thx. I, for one, have watched this takeover of the Republican Party with horror. In Oregon, once upon a time, only truly centrist Republicans or Democrats could hope to win the big cities, thus a statewide election. That all…"

"I would forget complex analysis and go back to the idea that, in the end, Republicans don't want anything from government.  This was true under FDR and moreso now.  And when earmarks were removed, that sealed the deal.…"

Profile Information

Bio
Ted Frier is an author and former political reporter turned speechwriter who at one time served as communications director for the Massachusetts Republican Party, helping Bill Weld become the first Bay State Republican in a generation to be elected Governor. He was Chief Speechwriter for Republican Governor Paul Cellucci and Lt. Governor Jane Swift. Ted is also the author of the hardly-read 1992 history "Time for a Change: The Return of the Republican Party in Massachusetts." So, why the current hostility to the Republican Party and what passes for conservatism today? The Republican Party was once a national governing party that looked out for the interests of the nation as a whole. Now it is the wholly-owned subsidiary of self interest. Conservatism once sought national unity to promote social peace and harmony. Now conservatism has devolved into a right wing mutation that uses divide and conquer tactics to promote the solidarity of certain social sub-groups united against the larger society while preserving the privileges of a few.

Those Who Fail to Learn from History...

The only thing I remember from kindergarten (other than the distinctive smell of paste) was the red, white and blue ribbon the teacher gave me when I correctly answered a question about American history, thus beginning my lifelong love affair with learning about America’s past. I think the teacher’s question was about George…
