To return to its roots (if not its glory days) he suggests the movement in general and Republican Party in particularly returns to the Burkean faction trumpeted by advocates such as W.F. Buckley for more than half of the last century. Sound advice if politicians were interested in principle over power however experience shows us otherwise. The notion that 10s of millions of supporters are going to be turned away by the GOP is simply preposterous. Nice explication of the problem. Absurdly naive solution.
As I have a lot of respect for Moyers I purchased a copy.
It was not what I was led to believe based on the Moyers interview of Tannenhus.
What I expected was a book that delt with the right's current delima of wanting
to get right with Reagan on the one hand and the need to move past him on the
This was indeed covered in the book, however so was such things as William F. Buckley's evoultion from a "movement conservative" to a pragmatist.
The title of the book is misleading as most of the book deals with the right in
the 40's 50's 60's & 70's rather than it's divisions today.
Nevertheless in spite of my misgivings this a readable book, just don't expect
to learn anything about where conservatism will be during next year's mid-terms
or in 2012.
