This segment originally aired on the October 6th, 2013 episode of Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV. The Republican Party has always relied on outside think tanks to supply them with ideas and talking points.  But in recent years, the extremists who have taken over the party have turned their backs on some of the most powerful Republican think tanks. Ring of Fire host Mike Papantonio speaks with attorney Joe Cotchett and newspaper publisher Rick Outzen about why this is hurting the GOP.
