Reagan's "11th Commandment" Goes Out The Window


by Steve

There's nothing like a little flip-flopping among the GOP presidential candidates to bring out the inner child in John McCain.

Republican John McCain accused presidential rival Mitt Romney of flip-flopping on immigration Monday and said with sarcasm: "Maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn."

Aside from the fun sniping among two of the leading GOP candidates on immigration, McCain is making a valid point. Both Romney and Fred Thompson are saying something different now about immigration than they did before. The biggest difference between then and now of course is the need for these candidates to pander to the wingnut, anti-immigrant base of the GOP.

But who exactly is the true heir to Reaganism among this group if the default position is to trash each other and make the Dems' job easier for them?
