Who’s the leader of the Republican Party?
Every so-called leader of the Republican Party — Bush, Cheney, McCain, McConnell, Boehner — is for the Wall Street bailout, but the measure got only 65 GOP votes in the House on Monday and went down to defeat.
So, who’s really running the GOP these days?
There was a time when the titled leaders of political parties held sufficient sway with the rank-and-file to get a job done in a time of crisis, even if the objective was only to put up a brave front in a lost cause and show solidarity with the officers of the ship.
That didn’t happen in this case. Instead, it was a mutiny.
So, who’s in charge of the Grand Old Party right now?
Do I hear any nominations?
