  •  I couldn't tell why he was so open with methods (0+ / 0-)

    Belligerence? I couldn't quite tell if maybe he was just naturally open about it, not caring who heard. Maybe he even hoped to rile up those on the other side who expected him to play fair.

    Or, miscalculation? If, instead, his mind formed in such an age that he didn't expect his words to escape the room or persist past the next election. Maybe he knew the quotes would be damaging if heard in public, but never thought there was anyone around whose goals differed from his.  He seems like he can only talk shop, and he seems like he assumes his audience will accept his goals and amoral approach as a matter of course.

    I'm sure he said even more and even worse than what we've heard, so maybe it's a combination of belligerence and miscalculation. Whatever the cause of his embarrassing candor, it's a liability to his party. We must all be thankful for efforts like rightwingwatch.org to resurrect and disseminate those old videos.
