Good luck with that. Sometimes a product gets such a bad reputation, it has to go out of production despite a bad rap. I'm very conservative and I have never liked the republican party and especially not its leadership. Setting up Boehner and McConnel as the face of the party, does great harm. Two unlikable stuffed shirts who are totally out-of-touch. Then they run a rich white corporate exec with good hair and teeth but little charisma. Republicans are going to have a hard time selling their party to conservatives, let alone moderates.
Isn't it tragically ironic that the man who rode the perfect storm into public office on the horse of national unity has now perfected the politics of division so spectacularly that he won re-election despite the worst record in decades?

For when you sift through the rubble from the Republican Party's 2012 nuclear catastrophe, you find consistent clues pointing to a simple explanation: We lost because Barack Obama convinced enough voters that he cares more about people than Mitt Romney, a rich white guy who is contemptuous of the poor, women, blacks and seniors. Never mind results; Obama cares and Republicans don't.
