Now, If the GOP Only Had a Message

Congress -- led by Democrats -- has an approval rating in the single digits; it's at an all-time low.  According to the linked Rasmussen poll, many Americans are pessimistic about the country's future.

Well, now would be a nice time for a GOP leadership with a positive message and some ideas for real reform, wouldn't it?  How 'bout emphasizing that America can solve its energy problems through some safe offshore drilling and some nuclear power -- and contrast that with Democrats' refusal to drill for oil, and Harry Reid's insistence that "coal is making us sick"?

How 'bout emphasizing that America can win in Iraq, and in fact, great strides are being made in that direction?

How 'bout insisting that America's representatives can pass a budget that doesn't involve tons of expensive earmarks -- and offer some policy proposals for making that come to pass?

How 'bout pointing out that America can come through these economic rough patches with the right policies -- and pointing out what they are -- then contrast that with the divisive, "soak the rich" mentality that culminates in Democrats supporting a budget that taxes those making $32,000 and up?

It's ironic that Barack and the Democrats are trying to adopt the "yes, we can" mantra when their success depends so greatly on convincing America that everything -- everything -- is almost irremediably wrong.  Republicans ought to try a little optimism along with a few real reforms . . . and find a message to tie it all together.
