David Frum, AEI SPLIT: Conservative's Position 'Terminated' By Major Think Tank

So it turns out that the American Enterprise Institute isn't a think tank -- it's a think-what-we-think-or-else tank.

Following the passage of health care reform in the House, Frum made waves with a column for CNN.com declaring that health care had proven to been "Waterloo" for the GOP, not for Obama as Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) infamously suggested. Republican lawmakers quickly dismissed Frum, a prominent reformist conservative, as a mere "former staffer."
Then Frum
said on "Nightline" that the Republican Party's lockstep with the Fox News attack machine has hurt the party, and that "we're discovering we work for Fox." That may have been the last straw for AEI. LinkHere
