sadly, I gotta agree with you liberal. GOP needs to move more to the middle, or wallow forever as the minority party.

Henry - I dont want you to violate anything. I want the GOP to succeed - as i tend to agree with the right more than the left. But the further to the fringes you go on the political scale - left or right - the harder it is for the average person to back that side. Generally speaking, my experiences with liberals AND conservatives is they feel they are superior, and know more than you, and know whats better for you than you. Thats not endearing - and that saddens me to hear the GOP feel thats what they need MORE of instead of less.

Romney was a bafoon who was as believable as the Isuzu guy from the old commercials. He didnt win because he wasnt beleiveable, and rightfully so, was viewed as out of touch with the average Joe.

Romney was not the middle?!

Getting your talking points from Rove?

so you want us to violate sound principles for policies that are destroying the country.....Keith, look at Europe, that's our future.....and it's breathing down our neck.

Who said being a "community organizer" doesn't prepare you for anything? The governing part may be a little dicey, but you sure know how to campaign.  And now we all know now about the Obama organization.  Obviously, GOP needs one.  

But in the run-up to 2016, we also need to find a way to extend our reach in popular culture.  That's because -- as Mark Halperin has noted -- the left is going to try make every viable GOP contender unacceptable in the eyes of the public before the 2016 season even starts off.

Obviously, if the right...
