You totally missed the point of this article.
The GOP will never win elections on negativity.
The GOP was the party of reform and new ideas--welfare reform, education reform, rebuilding our nation's defenses. Now it's become the party of "just say no": Do something about immigration? No. Do something about health care? No. Do something about poverty in America? No.
Defending the status quo while hoping to blast the Dems into defeat is never going to work. Never.
