Why Does Steve Forbes Hate America?

From Holden:

Is it because we have yet to insitute a flat tax?

FORBES: “… But the fact of the matter is what I think is going to hurt the Republicans is, one, the feeling they’ve been in power too long and they need to be punished but also, the economy is gonna look worse than it really is and that’s what’s gonna bite them in November.”

“[T]he sad fact” [is] that American voters will cast their ballots based on “what the Republicans have done and have not done.”
