The problem is we have no one in the republican party with any back bone to take a leadership position. With that being a fact the repubs are just floundering around and trying to figure out what happened. The repubs will never become relevant again until we can get some leadership that has the backbone to decide on what we stand for and then sticking to it. We always fall into the compromise trap which means giving to the dumbocrats what they want. We are lost in the wilderness and have no one to lead us out.
