Dick Armey is on the loose

I see in today's "Dallas Morning News" Dick Armey has a 2/3rds page article on where he thinks the Republican party has gone wrong. His organization is listed.

Dick Armey interviewed in the "Southern Partisan" Vol. 10, 3rd Quarter, 1990, starting on page 26. One of the major topics is his opposition to Civil Rights legislation. I wrote a review of both Armey's and Gramm's interview in the "Southern Partisan" and you can read it at this link.

Trent Lott's interview in the "Southern Partisan," incidentally, is online at:

One of the issues after the elections next Tuesday, is who is going to inherit the Republican party? I can't say that I know, but I don't think it is going to be under the control, as it as been in the last six years, of the Bush supporters. Bush is going to go, and many elected Republicans officials are finding that being identified with him might be the end of their careers. Hardly a situation where the White House can dictate policy to congressional representatives.

I think that there is a very real possibility that the racist Republican right is going to find itself back in the fold of the Republican party. Check this flyer of U.S. Senator Cornyn (Texas-R) going to a Rockford Institute event.

(For background on the Rockford Institutes' view on Hispanics, this is an article I wrote on it.

Again, I don't really know where the Republican party is headed. The new prominence of Dick Armey as critic of the direction of the Republican party, and Cornyn going to speak at a Rockford Institute events are just two items. They may fore shadow coming trends or just be isolated incidents. We will have to wait and see.

I do think it is likely that some elements of the Republican party who were suppressed by the managers of the national Republican party will be breaking free and coming to the surface.
