You sound like the same gloom and doom sky is falling, panicky old lady commentators Jonah makes fun of in the article. How can I make the same mistake as the pundits who said the polls were wrong and Romney was going to win? History said he was going to lose and he did. If you are saying conservatives need to steer the GOP ship, I couldn’t agree more. But our candidates need to be persons who can carry their own states and bring in blue collar democrats ie. Reagan democrats. A new second party…what is the Tea Party? If the Tea Party would become more disciplined and screen its candidates better, it would be the perfect vessel for a grass roots conservative movement.
