Good grief...this articel is clear evidence that conservatives didn't learn anything by getting themselves crushed in teh last election. Not being able to learn from experience is a sign of severely limited intellect. This does not inspire confidence among voters.

"Crushed"? The popular vote was no landslide for Obama. What I've learned is that the Democrats have been successful in building their base to include more takers than makers. The "Gimme my free stuff" (including amnesty) crowd won the day. It's always difficult to run against Santa Claus. I have also learned that the Democrats had better stick with running black candidates if they want to maintain the 90% + black vote margin. I have learned that the Republicans can buy the HIspanic vote just like the Democrats do by promising amnesty, so let's do it. We can also buy the women's vote by simply not getting into arguements about abortion.

J2: I believe it is people like you with the limited intellect. Conservatives did not lose the election. Establishment Republicans (RHINOs all) lost the election. Learn something about the Founding Fathers, their principles, the founding of this country, and the CONSTITUTION. Until then, take you troll a ss and go home.

But this only shows the insanity of trying to resurrect the Republican Party--it's been in critical condition since Bush 1, and it's life signs are deteriorating rapidly. Time for something new.

The big-money, big-government, New York/Washington elitist, Socal absolutist Republican Party is a dead. The sooner it's in the ground, the sooner we can all move on.

Rhino - and that is probably being overly complementary, CJ.

The proper path for the Republican party lies somewhere between changing our entire agenda and standing steadfastly on everything. Opinions will differ on the best way forward, as we have seen in the week and a half since the sucker punch of Election Day.

Most conservatives seem to be coping well. We spent a lot of time during the campaign wondering if America as we recognize it would survive a second Obama term. Ever the pragmatists, we now seem committed to doing our part to minimize the damage.

But as we seek to mitigate the harmful effects of...
