Conservatives have their problems these days, but these issues are actually mild compared to the really big problem at the core of liberal statism.

Love this comment from the article -

Conservatives need to empathize, readjust some applications of conservatism and talk like regular people.

Yes,there is alot of rebranding, retoning, reframing and repainting to do!

You only have to look at that Rat Bag B-Hatch PeeLousy to know the author is right.
"Conservatives have issues but liberals have a huge problem: Their ideology doesn't work."
Like Margaret Thatcher said - "Liberalism is great until you run out of other people's money".
Ask Greece, Spain, Portugal or Cyprus how their spending plans are working...
Or ask Obama when he finally plans on doing something positive for the US.. and he can.. THE POS coul;d RESIGN!!!

Not sure why the Post employs this ugly, obnoxious rightie bee-yotch, other than for comic relief.

I mean, listen to this tired, ridiculous boilerplate:

"David Brooks puts it as succinctly as anyone when he writes that “the entire Democratic governing vision, from President Obama on down, is based on the notion that we can have a growing welfare state and pay for it by taxing the top 2 percent.” This is impossible, as he notes, since there are not enough rich people to pay for all of that and you wind up with negative “long-term changes in social norms, behavior and growth.” The alternative is to raise taxes on everyone, which makes liberalism more honest but politically unfeasible."

No, idiotheads, if we have a "growing welfare state" at all it's because the GOPee and corporate Dems and Big Business have MOVED ALL OUR JOBS OUT OF COUNTRY for bigger profits. Less manufacturing base = fewer, lower-paying jobs = less in tax revenues = more in government payouts. Surely even dimwitted rightie twits like Rubin and Brooks could grasp these simple facts?

notice the utter lack of discussion of increasing revenues, cutting waste, cutting "Defense" (but I repeat myself), etc. Note the obsession with the "welfare state" and blaming it all on the poor and on minorities, while the wealthy and big corporations continue to get ALL sorts of tax breaks, privileges, etc. from these same folks.

Liberalism ran things just fine until the Reagan Reaction in the '80s, when the far right began to hijack government and the debate over how to govern. And with the religiuos right, the tea party, and Libertarians out there adding to the noise quotient, things are only getting worse. The GOPee actually seeks to DESTROY governmetn as we know it, no matter the effect on our economy and on Americans.

This article is disgusting, but typical of the crap the right is fililng the media with. The Post needs to dump this hag ASAP.

Taxes on the rich have decreased ever since WWII, and are at modern lows in the 30% range. Corporations departures have been aided by Governmetn, especially Republicans, and have been for profit, not as a reaction to taxes.

Why can't you guys tell the truth? Do you just not know what's going on???

of course you can't actually show anything wrong with Pelosi OR her ideology...you just hate her and make sexist comments. Why? You're stupid.

Maggie Thatcher was a notorious human-rights violater and should be in jail for it still.

Greece, Spain et. al. have economic problems because of European bank-based austerity, the same idiocy the GOPee wants to impose here. It's economic suicide.

Obama's doing some positive things - try it yourself, rightie liar.

More anti-Americanism and blame-passing by one of Topix' biggest and most obnoxious idiots, I see.

Are you ever going to start making positive, intelligent contributions here? Didn't think so..
