Axis of the Expendable: Frum vs. Limbaugh

It seems David Frum’s “€œaxis-of-evil”€ has been replaced with a new enemy – the “€œaxis-of-the-expendable,”€ or populist talk radio, once his greatest media ally but now his greatest embarrassment. The neocons loved when talk radio rallied the masses to support their war “€“ but in true elite fashion, now that they”€™re no longer needed, neocons are washing their hands of these rabble rousers and their rabble.

Anti-Military Conservatives

Anti-Military Conservatives

For all the yammering by talk-radio nitwits and GOP chicken hawks about “€œsupporting the troops,”€ it’s quite ironic that these same pundits and politicians have had little to say about the many high-ranking troops who support Obama’s decision to close Guantanamo Bay. Throughout, the Bush presidency, I made the point time and again that thanks to talk radio, being a “€œconservative”€ now meant never questioning your government so long as a Republican was in charge. To not support the president in a time of war was not only unpatriotic, but anti-military, we heard time and again. Last week these same pundits and politicians not only refused to support their president and his decision during a time of war, but on torture and Guantanamo Bay “€“ they loudly and boldly opposed the military.

Self-proclaimed conservatives and the entire “€œconservative movement”€ have had their minds or arms twisted to vote for a leftist who is “€œgood”€ on Israel and foreign crusades for democracy.
