the Republican Party is no longer the party of limited government, limited spending and limited taxes:
"It is now officially exactly right behind the Democrats -- on everything," Bozell said. "It is time for conservatives to start looking for a new home. There's precious little left for us here."
Bozell, the chairman of ForAmerica Inc., also heads the Media Research Center, the parent organization of CNSNews.com.
Should Americans assume that Boehner and House Republican leaders have been misleading the country for more than two years? Bozell wondered:
"It would be impossible to count the times and ways Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and so many others have told America that tax hikes would kill jobs and cripple the economy. Lo and behold, that's just what they've proposed, $800 billion of them," Bozell said. "They aren't taxes, no siree. They are 'revenue,' and 'loopholes' that are closed (which also begs the question: if loopholes, why were they open?)."
Why shouldn't Obama demand $1.6 trillion in tax hikes on wealthy Americans, Bozell asked: "The Republican Party has now surrendered its principles, and is in full retreat, the Democrats taste blood, and they're going for it all. I would too."
Bozell said it's no coincidence that just before releasing his proposal, Boehner orchestrated a purge of conservatives from key positions of power in the Republican Conference.
