  •  2014 is key (7+ / 0-)

    We dropped the ball in 2010 and gave the right an opening to come back strong, too strong, both in Congress and especially in statehouses around the country.

    If we can hold serve in the midterms, taking back the House (?) and regaining even a few state legislatures, we can turn the GOP upside down.

    I have always thought there is structural weakness on the Federalist/Whig/Republican side of the two-party system, and that with the right push the Republican Party will simply collapse.  I think that push is very close right now, though not quite here.

    I disagree with TexMex about the current crisis in the GOP.  It's real and profound, but to take advantage of it we need to stay on the ball.
