Turnbull laments state of US politics

Malcolm TurnbullMALCOLM Turnbull has sharply criticised the corrupting power of money in the US and described America as looking ''like a country that is barely governed''.

He attacks the Republican idea that the budgetary situation can be improved by cutting the taxes of the wealthy as ''just bizarre'', and describes the right-wing Tea Party as extreme, reactionary and radical.

Author Robert Manne writes: ''He thinks that American voluntary voting encourages Republican extremism and the search for 'hot-button issues', like abortion or guns or gay marriage or Obama as a secret Muslim.

''He is concerned about the fragmentation of opinion and collapse of the rational centre. He is profoundly concerned about the 'self-evident' corrupting influence of 'the power of money'.''
