The GOP: A Most Unpopular Majority Party

We lost the election, yes; no way to reverse that. Now we have another battle to win or lose: the public's perception of conservatives' approach to the fiscal cliff. If we do tumble over, you can bet that most of the public will be hanging the GOP in effigy over it, blaming it for obduracy and "obstructionism." Maybe we should look for a few dollars from the war chests that financed the ad campaigns during the election and make some new ones, ads that lay out the truth about the upcoming crisis the way they tried to lay out the truth during the election.

Step one .. Have GOP congressmen attend science classes focused on reproduction.
Step two .. Remove the word rape from all discussions about abortion
Step three .. Keep supporting small businesses, but let the wealthy fend for themselves. They don't need government/GOP assistance.
Step four .. Run don't walk away from Grover Norquist
Isn't it tragically ironic that the man who rode the perfect storm into public office on the horse of national unity has now perfected the politics of division so spectacularly that he won re-election despite the worst record in decades?

For when you sift through the rubble from the Republican Party's 2012 nuclear catastrophe, you find consistent clues pointing to a simple explanation: We lost because Barack Obama convinced enough voters that he cares more about people than Mitt Romney, a rich white guy who is contemptuous of the poor, women, blacks and seniors. Never mind results; Obama cares and Republicans don't.
