The Daily Caller has a fluff piece about an appearance by comedian-turned-pundit Dennis Miller on Fox's The O'Reilly Factor, where he called for abolition of the American welfare state.
You can click to read and see the whole thing, but the headline sums it up quite tidely:
This attitude perfectly exemplifies the key reason that the GOP keeps losing elections, and rightfully so.
He might as well be saying, "Let them eat cake."
I'm certainly not opposed to ending the welfare state, especially at the federal level, but these neocon clowns would take all that money and pass it out as international welfare.
It's taken 3 generations to get people addicted to the government teat and the citizens are not ever going to vote to go cold turkey, even if DC had the will. Who in their right political mind would think that centerists are going to buy into a plan that doesn't cut overseas spending while leaving its own citizens to fend for themselves?
Or even that they should?
