George Will is not the Dean of anything. Republicans do not pay attention to what this guy says at all. I think he speaks to the Democrats more than anything. He doesn't have much of an audience with Republicans at all. I am not sure why anyone thinks he does.

He has said he will circumvent congress to do whatever he wants. Only the courts will be able to stop him and that takes a long time. He may be able to change the complexion of the court by then. No we need the White House. Will is a jerk.
Of course, you neglect to mention that the Republicans in Congress are being obstructionist to the point that there is nothing Obama can do except for circumvent them. And I for one am glad that he's doing it.

George Will is a Republican with a brain. Therefore he cannot POSSIBLY be a true conservative.

Again, this is because Will has a brain. Therefore he is of no use to today's conservative movement. After all, he went to...college! What a snob!

George Will is a conservative from the time conservatives actually had an intellectual core. Thus it is understandable why the Republicans of today are seek to dismiss him.

And of course no conservative today has gone to college I am sure. Thanks for letting me know, I knew I wasn't feeling it in the conservative movement for some reason lately...lol. The fact that liberals like to quote what George Will has to say about things should tell the story.

This concerns me because George Will has never been right about anything.

The calls of "George Will speaks to Democrats," and "RINO" so far in this thread are hilarious. George Will, part of the old conservative guard, is no longer "conservative" enough to be a Republican. The difference in the party since the last time I voted Republican (2000) to now is just astounding. And if this extreme stance is truly the face of modern Republicanism than tin 20 years the party is as good as dead on a national level.

Ditto, He's a combination of anarchist and Stalinist.

Well apparently a large portion of them don't care for the concept of college, even if they went there...after all, universities are nothing but marxist indoctrination camps, right?

I'm just pointing out that the vast majority of conservatives would rather take their cues from talk radio, Fox News, some blog or some other brainless source than to actually listen/read/watch more intelligent conservatives. I don't see the UK Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal or the National Review cited much in this forum, do you?

George Will is a conservative. Not a whacko, but he's definitely a conservative. He just uses his brain, thinks things through and doesn't say anything inflammatory. Therefore he is seen as a "moderate" or "RINO". "Real conservatives" (ie, those leading the movement) have no use for things like a "mind" or "education". If you think things through, you might actually compromise on something, or learn to evaluate both sides before forming an opinion. Besides, education is for snobs.

They are abiding by the constitution, he is not. The document made it difficult to have a president become a dictator. BTW it is the democrats that are obstructing the GOP. They won't even vote on a budget or any of the 30 job creating bills passed by the house.
