Mike: Patrick J. Buchanan, in a column that he posted yesterday, posits the theorem that the Grand Old Party is moving towards a stance of noninterventionism, and that that is definitely the direction the party is going, that the McCains and Grahams, that their heyday of being able to invade and conquer the entire known universe and not even having to, well, they had to fabricate some fake excuse to do so, that that is not in favor anymore. Here’s what Buchanan writes under the headline “The GOP’s New Minority.”
Obamacare, a “train wreck” about to happen, says Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, goes into full effect Jan. 1, with the popular IRS as enforcer.
The Obama media feel betrayed by the secret intrusions on First Amendment rights. Libertarians see the National Security Agency’s data mining as a massive violation of Fourth Amendment rights.
The White House is bedeviled by scandals, the second-term curse has caught up with the Obama presidency, and prospects for the U.S. economy seem dicier than a few months ago.
History is also on the GOP’s side. In the second midterm elections, Presidents Wilson, FDR, Eisenhower, JFK-LBJ, Nixon-Ford, Reagan and Bush II all suffered big losses. It has become a tradition.

The American exceptionalism and the Jacobin-based patriotism that these people ooze, live, sleep, eat, and breathe, to me, is still very rabid, very front and center and hasn’t gone anywhere. It may have fallen out of favor and those that practice it and espouse it may not want to blabber about it today, but I don’t think it’s been overcome with anti-interventionism or noninterventionism. I think that there are more noninterventionists and there is some libertarian — I wouldn’t even call it libertarian. I think that’s a mistake to call it libertarian. I think there’s more [r]epublican, like the logo that I created to hopefully accentuate the use of the term and its proper connotation, not capitalized. I think there are more republicans being baptized and immersed in republican — it’s not ideology because you don’t want to be an ideologue — in republican tradition and pragmatism than ever before, or ever in my lifetime anyway…
