It makes me angry that they give the republican party such a bad name. They make conservatives look like nitwits, liars, and extremists when all conservatives aren't like that;
Before Bush, there wasn't this extreme/neo-conservative slant there. Actually, there was starting with Reagan...but NOTHING like what we have now.
My mother was a Republican and she's embarrassed to tell anyone that she is because of how the party is being run now. They've forced a lot of people away from the party and don't seem to realize the disservice they've done to conservatives.
