Yet another R pundit says the Rs need to communicate better. I say the need to ACT more like fiscal conservatives when they vote. Most Rs claim to be fiscal conservatives, but don't vote that way. So Cushman's advice is completely irrelevant unless the Rs actually vote like fiscal conservative.
If they were fiscal conservatives, they'd propose budget cuts and vote for them. They wouldn't cave in on the debt ceiling (twice now for nothing but the sequester) nor vote to continue "green investments" that result in billionaires bundling campaign cash for Obama as they have. Even Paul Ryan's budget INCREASES government spending each year in the first decade by 3.1%. Instead they use Keynesian arguments for spending.
