  •  my 80 year old dad was a loyal (14+ / 0-)

    Goldwater-Reagan Republican.  As a kid, I can remember him hosting GOP fundraisers at our home. I likewise remember the generational political debates growing up, but I always respected the good faith of his political beliefs.

    My Dad hates the current GOP. He thinks Bush/Cheney and the Tea Party wrecked his party and has become a solid Obama supporter. Never thought my "conservative" dad would become a Democrat.

    •  The GOP lost my dad with the Schiavo (8+ / 0-)

      debacle. That and gay marriage. Dad has numerous derogatory names for gays but even he said "Maybe they should spend more of their time making laws that help people than worrying about fags getting married". We don't agree on much but Dad has him moments.
