Summary
Since 1968, no conservative administration not Nixon not Reagan not two Bushes could live up to the rhetoric rooted in the Goldwater movement that began to reshape American politics fifty years ago. The collapse of the Nixon presidency led to the rise of Ronald Reagan, the defeat of George H.W. Bush, to Newt Gingrich's revolution. Bush initially undertook a partial modernization, preaching compassionate conservatism and a Fourth Way to Clinton's Third Way. Conservatives quickly defined him as an advocate of big government and not conservative enough on spending, immigration, education, and Medicare. A return to the true faith was the only prescription on order. The result was the Tea Party, which Dionne says, was as much a reaction to Bush as to Obama. The state of the Republican party, controlled by the strictest base, is diminished, Dionne writes. It has become white and older in a country that is no longer that. It needs to come back to life for its own health and that of the country's, and in "Why the Right Went Wrong," he explains how."
Summary
A best-selling author and syndicated columnist for The Washington Post describes the history of the conservative right since the 1960s and discusses his belief that the Tea Party is the direct ideological descendant of the Goldwater movement
