Brent Bozell encourages candidates to ‘go Reagan and watch what happens’
I never thought at #CPAC, I'd hear more shots fired against other Republicans, than against Obama. Hell of a way to grow a Party.

@ananavarro Some internal pressure is helpful. Many take it too far. If you believe Brent Bozell, conservatives do not exist

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).

Bozell says of Paul Ryan:”You’re a good man and you mean well.” Then slams him for budget including “Obamacare” taxes #CPAC2013

RT@ginthegin: Bozell slams Ryan for budget including “Obamacare” taxes, wishes he hadn’t voted for Gov. McDonnell, and spanks Karl Rove

Bozell wants House of Representatives to refuse to fund HHS and appropriate any money to implement Obamacare #cpac

Bozell: Paul Ryan your budget has the fed gov’t spend $41T over the next 10 yrs, that’s what liberal #Dems do, it is Democrat lite

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.

No one tell bozell that Reagan raised taxes. A lot…

Would we trade just about any of our current “establishment” conservatives for another Reagan, though?
L. Brent Bozell: “Get over Ronald Reagan? Let me suggest we need to get over men like David Brooks.” Wham! Pow! #CPAC13
