You can be creative and take a 40 lb flightless turkey and 're-brand' it a 'winged gazelle', if you choose....... but at the end of the day it will still be a 40 lb. flightless turkey. The GOP does not have a 'branding' or 'image' problem; the GOP has a product 'identity' problem. And the problem is this: can a truly "conservative" party EVEN function in 21st century society? Especially in a society that has been taught, from Kindergarten thru Graduate school, that 'society' is to blame for people's problems, and it is 'society's' and government's RESPONSIBILITY to 'fix' those problems?

A "conservative"? Most people can't even define "conservative" and more... People like Rove and Romney claim to be "conservative", but lets be honest, they're far from it.

Andy: We at least need to TRY. And that is something the GOP hasn't done in decades.

I believe that many, perhaps a majority, of the people are aching for a party that actually represents limited, Constitutional government and fiscal responsibility.

then it's time (past time!) for the 'people' to take charge of their own destiny and stop trusting the charlatans and 'experts' and 'self-promoters' who have enriched themselves at the 'people;s expense' and exploited their ignorance!

Can a truely conservative party even be defined? I think it is lack of character. These people know right from wrong but sell their souls.

Much has been said and written regarding Karl Rove and the Republican Party establishment's latest plan to go harder after conservatives than they ever would Democrats. And I’ve had much to say about it myself.

But I’ve yet to see anyone question the premise of the phony argument Rove is hiding behind to justify his crusade to purge the GOP of anybody that won’t grovel at the feet of the ruling class (which is what Rove’s pro-establishment Jihad is really all about). See, in Rove’s world if you actually have principles and want to defeat Democrats and not just negotiate...
