Michael Smerconish: A Republican leaves his party

February 22, 2010

Michael Smerconish is the Philadelphia area’s top talk-show host, and a frequent guest host for Bill O’Reilly on his nationally syndicated Radio Factor. Smerconish has been a Republican all his adult life, including a stint as assistant secretary of HUD under Bush I.

He’s had enough. He’s decided to leave a party that he describes as exclusionist and dominated by the religious right, with no room or tolerance for long-standing moderates. He’s no Democrat, either,

He describes why he decided to leave the party on the Huffington Post. Recommended reading for Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike.
