Two Cheers For Rebranding

To put away childish things means to grow-up. It means that reality must replace, fairy tales. No Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus and no Tooth Fairy. These are fun for children but for the mature these things don't exist. The Repubs aren't trying to sell Bentlys if a Gov. auto is too pricey. They are like a car salesman telling a potential Chevy Imapala customer that if he thinks the car is pricey then the salesman will take off the doors, hood, glass, tires, engine and keep taking off what makes the car a car until the customer can buy it.' This is what the Dems do with the Constitution. The Repubs need to show the customer that a grown-up can own any car on the lot if the customer will work for it.

I thought the Impala analogy was off because the voters didn't reject the GOP because the voters were less conservative.... they lost voters because people don't believe their candidate was really conservative. They thought the Impala was a Yugo in disguise.

gtanv, I agree. There were quite a few conservatives who didn't vote because Romney isn't a real conservative. I am so sick of the weak candidates who are put forth by the Repubs. Then, once the candidate is chosen, the Repubs back off on making cogent, articulate positions which conservatives can believe and support. Even if we still had lost, I would have felt much better if I had believed that we had really given it our best shot. Then I could have believed it was the low info voters and Fluke type idiots who were responsible instead of our weak candidate. Repubs are afraid to fight and now target their own members and the Tea Party instead of welcoming conservatives and sticking to responsible positions. Rebranding may be a good

idea in theory, but until Repubs return to Reagan roots and fight for conservative principles, nothing is going to change. And right now, I'm of the opinion that it may be too late. We are headed for the destruction of the country of our Founders.

No it doesn't. It means the childish things are no longer useful or necessary. Read the context, or didn't you know it's from the Bible?

Ever since Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, there's been a lot of talk about how the Republican Party needs to "rebrand" itself.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wants, among other things, for the GOP to stop being "the stupid party." Rep. Paul Ryan has concluded that the watchword for the Republican Party needs to be "prudence." Sen. Marco Rubio is the front man for the most tangible aspect of the rebranding effort: getting on the right side of the immigration issue. In the process, he's become something of the de facto point person for the party.
