He is actually one of my favorite liberal Republicans, but his speech last night was a boring mess. Leach’s contention that the “party of individual rights has started regulating values” is a little too much to take from the sponsor of the online gambling ban. The Democratic Party’s desire to showcase Republicans like him is rich, because he was one of the Republicans they defeated in 2006 to get their majority. And finally, this is off-message for the Obama campaign, since Leach is one of the sponsors of the banking legislation they (erroneously) blame for our current financial jitters, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
