Even Pat Robertson Agrees That The Republican Party Has Moved Too Far To The Extreme Right

It is a bad sign for the Republicans when Pat Robertson has become the voice of sanity in the Republican Party, warning that they are taking positions which are too extreme to win a general election. Think Progress summarizes the video above:

On his show The 700 Club, Robertson warned that the GOP base is pushing their party’s presidential nominees to take such extreme positions that they will be unelectable. “I believe it was Lyndon Johnson that said, ‘Don’t these people realize if they push me over to an extreme position I’ll lose the election?’” he said. “Those people in the Republican primary have got to lay off of this stuff. They’re forcing their leaders, the frontrunners, into positions that will mean they lose the general election…They’ve got to stop this! It’s just so counterproductive!”
