You Know The GOP Has Lost It When David Horowitz Has To Admit It


In a Salon piece titled “Get Over Your Obama Derangement Syndrome” Horowitz cautions:

I have been watching an interesting phenomenon on the right, which is beginning to cause me concern. I am referring to the over-the-top hysteria in response to the first months in office of our new president, which distinctly reminds me of the “Bush is Hitler” crowd on the left.

Speaking of this crowd, have you seen any “I am so sorry” postings from that quarter as Obama continues and even escalates the former president’s war policy in Afghanistan and attempts to consolidate his military occupation of Iraq?

Conservatives, please. Let’s not duplicate the manias of the left as we figure out how to deal with Mr. Obama. He is not exactly the antichrist, although a disturbing number of people on the right are convinced he is.

Ok, acknowledging that Obama isn’t “exactly” Satan is mild praise, but still. If Horowitz thinks his homies have lost it, maybe there’s hope for the right. Because so far, they hate losing more than they love America.
