and to even things out, this piece from OpEdnews.com, In a Party of Hypocrites , NeoCons are King: http://www.opednews.com/snyder11_03.neocon_hypocriteshtm.htm
*But this is the best analysis, and the most clarifying, that I have encountered:(In brief, this piece asserts that Neocons are simply American Tories, in the sense of that term in the days of the American Revolution. They believe in monarchy and aristocracy, unfettered by enlightenment reforms. I think it may be the aristocratic pride of tone which seduces, and the admiration naturally evoked at free and independent individuals. But their ideology is at odds with principles of morality and knowledge of human psychology and the duties and rights of democracies in this time. )"The NeoCons are neither true republicans nor "true Republicans at heart" since they don't believe in our form of government. . . or in an independent judiciary. They should form a new party to be called the American Tory Party." ~from, "The Key to Understanding NeoCons" posted by jcflemming at denverpost.com, feb 2006
And here is an interesting twist on things, from the Blog, "Lenin's Tomb": NEOCONS LOVE OBAMA! http://leninology.blogspot.com/2008/12/neocons-love-obama.html
And Patrick Buchanan's book, "Where the Right Went Wrong: How NeoCons Subverted the Reagen Revolution and Hijacked the Bush Presidensy" , Sep. 2004 certainly looks like something I would like to add to my own reading list, if I could find the time.
