Can't agree with your post? Dood... Get a life. You act like you know your "friends" on SLS fora personally. Take your ball and go home.

Is it okay to agree with your last post without being labeled a cheerleader?

It's the same as demoting McCain and Ron Paul to Jr. Republicans.

I just don't understand the blue dogs though. Either with us, or join the moderates. There are no moderate candidates that can get an equal third of the electoral pie.

Green, no. Tea party, hell no.

I was thinking it was Bruce Bartlett that AEI had fired for being critical of Republican policy, but Bartlett (a former Jack Kemp and R. Reagan senior advisor, and former Fellow at Heritage and Cato), was canned from a different conservative think tank when he wrote a book critical of GWB). AEI fired David Frum (GWB's former speechwriter) in 2010 for criticizing Republican legislative intransigence during Obama's first two years). You can't really call a think tank "Independant" when it shit-cans its Fellows at the behest of politically-motivated donors.

As for Ornstein, I didn't know he was pals with Franken, but FWIW he has a wicked wit that would put Franken to shame. He also is pretty tight with the Clintons. I'm guessing that AEI keeps him around as a token moderate, and also because any criticism by him of Republican policies can be dismissed as "typical libtard." It's harder for them to deal with criticism from conservative bona fides like Bartlett and Frum.

Their commentators do not spew hateful drivel like we see on these forums.

Yes, many high profile right-leaning scholars reside there, including several neo-con heavyweights.

Norman Ornstein is a well informed political centrist, has been around a long time. Has been based at AEI for a long time. Wiki says he is a long time friend of Al Franken. Worth reading.

AEI has a lot of solid writers and speakers in its fold.

Using an ubiquitous name that reveals nothing, yet suggests something, is on of the primary tactics of Republic-con Party devotees to oligarchy, plutarchy, or demagoguery.

Every sixth grade American government student knows that. Unless they are home-schooled by right-wing Christ/christless masters and ministers of deception, or Republic-con Party American history reductionists.

AEI is strongly conservative, but they keep a few token moderates around. Norm Ornstein is a pretty decent guy.

Wasn't AEI the outfit that booted a former Bush admin official for being too critical of house Repubs during the health care debate?

"non partisan" by some definitions is equal parts truth and lies. Rather like Fox News' "fair and balanced" reporting.
