    I'm not seeing your point. Seems to me since the fall of the U.S.S.R. Republicans have merely substituted "terrorism" for "communist." Nixon and Reagan were plenty fixated on communism, just as Bush was on terrorism.

    The Republicans bungling of economic issues over the past couple of years has got me ready to vote for a different party. Too bad there are no viable alternatives.

    Chuck Hagel Accusers Who Allege Anti-Semitism Getting Pushback
    by Peter Beinart Jan 14, 2013 4:45 AM EST

    "Critics from Elliott Abrams to The Wall Street Journal have been attacking Obama’s defense secretary nominee as ‘anti-Jewish’ or ‘anti-Israel,’ but are sounding a retreat after being hammered by the likes of Thomas Friedman and Richard Haass.

    From the beginning, Chuck Hagel’s nomination as secretary of defense has been about more than just the policies he’d pursue at the Pentagon. It’s been about the terms of legitimate discourse in Washington, D.C. And in this regard, even though he’s yet to be confirmed, Hagel is already proving an agent of change.

    He’s proving an agent of change because over the past week or so, for the first time I can remember, the Jewish right’s tactic of calling people they disagree with on Israel policy anti-Semitic has begun to backfire."

    GLORY HALLELJAH! FREE SPEECH RETURNS TO CONGRESS!!!

    Can't speak for him, but for me at least I'd have generally supported the Republican candidates from Eisenhower to George HW Bush (with the exception of Goldwater).
