    It’s interesting that as a movement, we conservatives have been so self-limiting in size and scope. What I find even more ironic is that Reagan is so often held up as the ideal, yet he would most likely be aghast at the way the GOP big tent has shrunk since he left office. We will keep trimming off the perceived cancers growing on our movement until the primary organism bleeds to death. The coalition that President Obama built was an impressive one, but I believe a fragile one as well. Surely some disaffected groups will peel off over the next four years, but if the GOP is not there to accept them, who will?Report

    But in all seriousness, you raise a very valid point, and I have no answer for you. I really don’t.Report
