Two Cheers For Rebranding

I have voted Republican all my life and at times have been a registered Republican. The first President I ever voted for was Reagan. I support the party when it espouses fiscally conservative values as it has done in the past. If you think I am a RINO because I follow the libertarian political, then you do not understand the distinction between party and political philosophy. By your definition, someone who supports the TEA party is a RINO. There is no Republican political philosophy. There is the party platform and much of it I can agree with. RINOs don't agree with the platform, they just put an R after their name to get elected.

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.
