The GOP Crackup

Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor under President Clinton, contributes regular opinion pieces on-line and to various print papers, among them, the San Francisco Chronicle.  Today he has an interesting take:

The crackup isn’t just Romney the smooth versus Gingrich the bomb-thrower.

Not just House Republicans who just scotched the deal to continue payroll tax relief and extended unemployment insurance benefits beyond the end of the year, versus Senate Republicans who voted overwhelmingly for it.
