Brent Bozell encourages candidates to ‘go Reagan and watch what happens’

Did Media Research Center president Brent Bozell take it too far in his speech at CPAC today? Bozell called out a number of elected officials from the GOP by name, but perhaps his strongest rebuke was against the House leadership for not defunding Obamacare (along with the “utterly useless agencies” NPR, PBS and the NEA, not to mention the “evil” Planned Parenthood).

Perhaps the only Republican of note to escape Bozell’s criticism was Ronald Reagan, and Bozell encouraged Jeb Bush to “be the first Bush to go Reagan – and watch what happens.”

Quite a few remembered that even Reagan would have trouble meeting the “true conservative” test these days.

Would we trade just about any of our current “establishment” conservatives for another Reagan, though?
