‘Me Too” Republicans, By Thomas Sowell

Many ideas presented as “new” are just rehashes of old ideas that have been tried before — and have failed before. So it is no surprise that the recent “Growth and Opportunity Project” report to the Republican National Committee is a classic example of what previous generations called “me too” Republicanism.

“Me too” Republicans think that the key to winning elections is to do more of what the Democrats are doing. In effect, they say “me too” on issues such as immigration in hopes of gaining more new votes than they lose by betraying their existing supporters.

In the wake of last year’s presidential-election debacle for the Republicans, the explanation preferred by “moderate” Republicans has been that the GOP has been too narrowly ideological and needs to reach out to minorities, women, and young people rather than just to conservatives.
