Good advise. Better advise is to undertake how to destroy the credibility of the Democrats running things today. As in scorched earth. No prisoners. Make Obama's Axlerod appear like a lap dog.,
First up, give the Dems full control of the economy. The GOP needs to end the "blame W, blame the GOP, blame business, blame evil white guys" etc., and simply allow them to take ownership. Start by agreeing to all of Obama's taxes while publicly saying "Won't work, but the voters want the Democrats to run the economy so we won't stand in the way."
On spending, the House GOP should simply tell the Senate that they'll act immediately on the Democrat Senate budget. Until they get, it they'll focus on improving the czars.
