What's Wrong With My Republican Party?
Chris Emami, over at the OC Political Blog, has presented us with a fascinating window into the minds of two very influential Orange County Republican politicians - Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry and OC GOP Treasurer Mark Bucher.
Bucher, as some know, is - or was- related to Costa Mesa Mayor Jim Righeimer by marriage and has been his running buddy on anti-union political issues for decades. They hatched the failed "Paycheck Protection" scheme together.
INSIGHT INTO THE DIVISIONS IN THE PARTY
I think you'll find the audio Q&A between Bucher and Curry quite illuminating and worth the time it takes to listen - just under 30 minutes. You'll get a real feel for what's wrong with my Republican Party these days. You'll hear Curry use the terms "Stupid Politics", "Holier than thou", etc. You'll hear Bucher praise Righeimer as a "principled person" - please try to keep a straight face.
