But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Executive order from Governor Jan Brewer blocks IDs, benefits for illegal immigrants’
‘At our 25th college reunion in 2003, Grover Norquist — the brain and able spokesman for the radical right — and I, along with other classmates who had been in public or political life, participated in a lively panel discussion about politics. During his presentation, Norquist explained why he believed that there would be a permanent Republican majority in America’.
‘One person interrupted, as I recall, and said, “C’mon, Grover, surely one day a Democrat will win the White House.”
‘Norquist immediately replied: “We will make it so that a Democrat cannot govern as a Democrat.”
