Sorry Carol, but by 2016 the Crapheads are going to have this nation in such bad shape, people will be begging for the return of the GW Bush days. No doubt most of the Crapheads will drop to their knees and offer free hummers in exchange for the return of the pervert from Hope. No, the days of the un-American POS from Chitown is quickly coming to an end. By 2014 when over two thirds of the nation can only find part time work, we'll see just how happy with Obutthole America truly is.

No one of sound mind will ever be "begging for the return of the GW Bush days," regardless of whatever other tragedies may befall the country.

Thats what the Right said about the last election, and look how that turned out? The GOP needs to move towards the middle if they want to win. If "conservative all the way" actually worked - why did the Right get so beat up on the election? But hey, im an independant - doesnt matter to me - both sides are to far to the extreme for my tastes.

NYC - thats both sides to be honest. The fringes - both liberals and conservatives come across as arrogant, we are better, and know better than you. The left gets away with it more because the media, music, TV etc - tend to be liberals so its more mainstream.

The only difference between a liberal and a conservative is what evil they feel your too stupid to save yourself from.

The Republicans have to ditch the right wing and the radio talkers and Faux News. Then they have a shot to win. They can win without the wingies, too--if they get 60 million votes, the wingies are only like 20 million. That's a net gain of like 40 million, and the wingies have nowhere to go.

Dump the RightWingNuts!

Still holding to this one, eh? The last croaking remains of the Reagan coalition died with GW, but you guys insist on clinging to it.

New world in American politics, son. No one respects the Republicans. No one much likes them. And certainly, no one thinks they have an idea what the hell they are talking about, whether economics or morality. This idea you have about the economy floundering in 2014? Comes from the same stupid and economically illiterate place that said interest rates would be through the roof by 2012.

But what else do they have to "move on" to? Obamacare is a done deal, their economic theory is (as the President has repeatedly reminded us) a matter of going back to what got us in trouble in the first place, and they contradict their alleged principles of personal freedom by attempting to legislate their own views on morality. In short, why are they still here, instead of consigned to the political impotent fringes until the last cranky neo-confederate Tea-vangelical passes to his reward?

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...
