Bruce Bartlett is an anti-Republican. And guess what:
When I talk to old timers from the Reagan years, many express the same concerns I have. But they all work for Republican-oriented think tanks like AEI and Hoover and don’t wish to be fired like I was from NCPA. Or they just don’t want to be bothered or lose friends. As a free agent I am able to say what they can’t or won’t say publicly.
Sounds about right.
