Victor Gold talked about his book, Invasion of the Party Snatchers: How the Holy-Rollers and the Neo-Cons Destroyed the GOP, published by Sourcebooks. He argued that the Republican Party has accepted non-conservative ideas such as fiscal irresponsibility and a theocratic view of church and state. He talked about the internal party conflicts and the prospects for restoring its commitment to limited government and a constrained role for politics. After his presentation Mr. Gold responded to audience members' questions.
Victor Gold was deputy press secretary for Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign, which launched the conservative revolution in the Republican Party. He was a speechwriter for President George H. W. Bush and collaborated on his autobiography Looking Forward. He coauthored a satirical novel, The Body Politic, with Lynne Cheney. close
