DeMint Rules

21 October 2013 |permalink | email article

A weak John Boehner’s sorry reality is that he is no longer the real leader of the Republican Party. The true leader is the former senator isn’t just the head of the right’s premier thank tank—he’s now running the Republican Party. As DeMint made it abundantly clear in a recent Bloomberg Businessweek cover story—in which he comes off as a utopian, delusional, ruthless and disarmingly serene—his goal, and thus the goal of the institutional organs he controls and the hardcore activist base he leads, is the defunding (or at least the delay) of Obamacare itself. Returning to the Bloomberg Businessweek piece, what’s most striking about DeMint is his boundless optimism. He’s not only utterly convinced that there’s a silent majority of conservatives dotting on the American landscape, but he also believes that Republican’s failures in 2008 and 2012 were the product of the party not being conservative enough.
