No. Absolutely not! The Republican Party’s decline is not the result of a poor sales job. The Republican Party’s problem is that it is selling the same warmed-over conservative crap that it’s been peddling for the past thirty years (at least). It didn’t work then--it won’t work now.
We don’t know if President Obama has the right answers or not; but we already know where the Republicans’ conservative policies lead. We are living through the mess they created right now.
The current crop of Republican lawmakers can offer no solutions to America’s problems because their under-active conservative brains cannot even perceive the problems--let alone respond to them. If moderate Republicans don’t regain control of their party; it is destined to become a regional party of southern conservatives, clinging to their guns and religion, and quarrelling over whether their next Presidential candidate should be Sara Palin or Joe the Plumber. Next stop: the dustbin of history--along with the Whigs and Tories.
It couldn’t happen to a more deserving party.
