Levin: Something Wrong with GOP When Cruz, Lee, Paul Are Attacked by PartySubmitted by barracuda_trader on Sun, 10/13/2013 - 04:24
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin blasted the Republican establishment at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. on Friday, calling the way the federal government is currently operating a "soft tyranny."
Levin accused them of spending more time attacking conservatives who are fighting a federal government rife with crony capitalism than in becoming more accountable to the American people.
Levin said there is a problem with the government when there are only a "handful of conservatives defending this nation against Obamacare" on the Senate floor. He said something is wrong with the Republicans when "[conservatives] are under brutal assault in their own party."
"When Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul are the exception, something is wrong in that party," Levin declared.
Saying he did not believe "Washington intends to reform itself," Levin said conservatives have to accept that the Republican Party today is not the Reagan Republican Party or the party of Barry Goldwater. Levin mentioned his support for Reagan in the monumental 1976 and 1980 Republican presidential primaries and his work in the Reagan administration's Justice Department.
