  •  The GOP... (2+ / 0-)

    Is still around for 3 reasons:

    1 - Ike chose the GOP over the Dems - most likely because it was easier to win the Republican nomination.  This made the GOP 'respectable' after 20 years of getting crushed.

    2 - The Red Scare.  The GOP has always been good at getting people motivated by fear.  They were able to parley the fear of nuclear war and the USSR into electoral success.  The sequel to this is the 'War on Terrorism'.

    3 - The Southern Strategy.  This is a counter-reaction to the civil rights act in the '60's.  This strategy works as long as the electoral math tilts towards whites.  That is rapidly becoming impossible.  This is why they will never pass immigration reform.

    'Goodwill' between the GOP and the President is as abundant as unicorn farts - Me'
