A year or so ago one of the writers on Town Hall wrote an excellent article about how the GOP often reads their stage direction out loud. Sen McConnell stating that his main goal is to make Pres Obama a one-term president. He should have lost his leadership position for saying something that obvious out loud.
Not a big fan of S.E. Cupp but I believe she wrote an article about practical things the GOP can do to turn things around. They were a good list. I wish I could find it.
