Every now and then Newsweek columnist David Frum comes out of his own political bubble, seeks truth and finds it…

On Friday, author and former Bush speechwriter David Frum joined the Morning Joe panel, where he shared his blunt assessment of the current GOP.

When asked who can lead the Republican party now, Frum responded that he believes the Republican party is “a party of followership:”

The problem with the Republican leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken. The real locus of the problem is the Republican activist base and the Republican donor base. They went apocalyptic over the past four years, and that was exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world. I won’t soon forget the lupine smile that played over the head of one major conservative institution when he told me that our donors think the apocalypse has arrived, that Republicans have been fleeced and exploited and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex.

Host Joe Scarborough asked him to repeat this slowly.

When asked to name names, Frum would say only to check in his book and that there are, really, “too many to name.” Right now, he continued, the leaders in the party have no space to operate.

As for Romney, whom Frum thought would have made an excellent president, he was “twisted into pretzels” only to find that “the people who put the cement shoes on his feet are now blaming him for sinking.”

  1. “The problem with the Republican leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken.”

    Dear reader, this is an excerpt taken from the very beginning of a quote within Mr. Turley’s first page. I have been unable to get past this, why? That depends on what “is” is!
    Let me re-phrase this: The problem with Democratic leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken.” See, it works both bloody ways!
    In-fact, BIGGER, AND BIGGEST COWARDS, LYING, DEGENERATE, HYPOCRITICAL LYING COWARDS IN AMERICA right now are THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERS ON THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT: Stephen Breyer comes to mind! A bonafide, immoral and disgusting liberal liar!
    A man who has been, and continues to provide the cover for the attorney Jeanne M. kincaid out of the Drummond-woodsum lawfirm of Portsmouth NH to keep me (a former nurse) unemployed because I have refused to withdraw my first amendment right to legal redress!
    This man has and provides the cover for this whore to deluge my 10 yr old son with porn (and myself). This rotten person, a Jewish man who knows about hate and persecution has been usurping the Constitution and committihng treason…TREASON! HE IS NOT WORTHY TO BE A JUSTICE! HE IS A LIAR, WORST THAN NIXON!
    He believes that because he now wears a Black robe, that things are different, but allow the economy to severely tumble…gets who gets scape-goated…thats what happened in Nazi germany…how soon he forgets!
    I AM LIVING IN A SHELTER, AND PREVENTED FROM WORKING SINCE 2007, AS HE CONTINUES TO PROVIDE THE COVER FOR THIS, LONG AFTER THE CORRUPT COURT DENIED AND DISMISSED A VOID CASE, A CASE THAT LOST SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION BECAUSE OF THE PROCEDURAL & SUBSTANTIAL CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY INVOLVED.
    I DID NOT MAKE UP THE SPECIAL EDUCATION LAWS…CONGRESS DID IN 2004. I DID NOT RULE IN THE WINKLEMAN DECISON THAT PARENTS HAVE A RIGHT TO TAKE UP THEIR CHUILDREN’S CASE AS THEIR OWN & COME BEFORE COURT…THEY, THE SUPREME LYING HYPOCRITS DID! AND WHEN I WENT AFTER MY FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO LEGAL REDRESS, I DID NOT MAKE THAT UP, THE FOUNDING FATHERS DID!
    I WILL SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO INTENTION OF LETTING ME LEAVE THIS COUNTRY EITHER! I AM NOT A CITIZEN, AND I WANT TO LEAVE, AND I HAVE A RIGHT TO LEAVE. THESE NAZIS ARE AFRAID OF WORLD KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT THEY DO TO DISABLED CHILDREN & THEIR PARENTS!
