Biggest issue is that the republican leadership is held by RINOs who have Zero conviction. Let us look at the leadership of Reid ---even before the results when Romney was leading, he said he will not cooperate with Romney. Boehner did not even wait for few days before he was spouting liberal media points that the president won & he is willing to do any type of compromise. Look at Pelosi, Shumer,Durbin...how tough they are while Boehner, Cantor, McConnel are spineless, power hungry, politicians. Unless there is a major change in the republcian party leadership, only way out is a 3rd party -Tea Party, Conservatives & Libertarians should agree on a common theme & strart something.
