When the conservative Washington Times has only harsh things to say about the Republican Party, you know they are in trouble.


The demise of the Republican brand

by Timothy Zlatich, washingtontimes.com -- January 28, 2013

[...]
Bush’s perceived and real ineptitude was the beginning of the fall of the Republican brand. During his presidency, the usual group of Conservative radio personalities seemed to support him out of pure partisan habit, an us versus them approach which amplified American resentment towards Republicans.
[...]

Republicans seem to have lost the war of ideas and principles. Their shattered image and divided ideology need to be reconciled with what the voting public wants and needs. With two Presidential losses attributed to Limbaugh, Hannity, and Ingrahm's plan, their credibility as the base of the conservative movement is lost.

Who knew that simply being a Republican-Tea-Party yahoo was not enough, to fool all of the people, some of the time?

Those with Brand-R pins on their lapels, certainly didn't ...


Republicans struggle to find winning strategy

allvoices.com -- Jan 28, 2013

[...]
The rejection of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the last election goes beyond the hypocrisy of believing in government assistance for corporate America, but not for working class Americans. The Republican Party has no new ideas or vision to offer voters, and some believe that they are rude.

The 2012 GOP campaigns were filled with crude remarks directed toward women and rape victims, conspiracy theories, false and misleading ads, and in some cases outright lies. Not exactly the kind of stuff that demonstrates good leadership qualities. Add that to four years of refusing to govern, suggestions of racism, threats to deliberately wreck the economy and insults directed at 47 percent of the population, and the Republican brand has rightfully earned the title of “stupid party.”

Contrary to the GOP message, the American people do not want smaller government; they want more efficient government that can afford to help them when they need it. They want to see the end of three decades of economic and tax policy that has expanded income inequality, poverty, and kept wages stagnant
[...]

In 2012, Republican efforts at voter suppression failed. Enormous amounts of money failed. Now, instead of blaming the candidates or changing the message, RNC chair Reince Priebus has decided that the reason Romney didn’t win was because the GOP had not cheated enough. His solution is to rig the Electoral College in time for the 2016 elections, so even if the Republican candidate gets fewer votes, they can still win the election.
[...]


What's that old saying about "Cheaters never Prosper" -- you'd think the holier-than-thou club would know something that one.

I guess they ain't called Hypocrites for nothing.  Cheating is really their go-to M.O. -- just ask Reince.


No worries, Republican brain-trust make-over guys ... "There's no need to fear -- Tea Party Underdog is near!"


Ah, this ought to be good ... the guy without a heart, is going to tell the R's to start "acting like they care" ...


Major Cantor speech to recast image of GOP and conservatism

by Molly K. Hooper, thehill.com -- 02/04/13

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor hopes to put a kinder face on Republican policies in a major policy address on Tuesday.
[...]

According to excerpts obtained by The Hill, Cantor will attempt to recast the GOP position on the role of government.

“Government policy should aim to strike a balance between what is needed to advance the next generation, what we can afford, what is a federal responsibility and what is necessary to ensure our children are safe, healthy and able to reach their dreams,” the GOP leader will say.
[...]

“We will advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, healthcare, innovation, and job growth. Our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self reliance, faith in the individual, trust in the family, and accountability in government,” Cantor is set to say.
[...]

In other words, same elephant, different costume.


So what do you think the Republican should do, to change their name from "Mud" to "Stick in the Mud"?

How about nothing.  Just keep doing what you're doing Republicants.  The American people secretly like Obstruction.  Just wait til that next Election -- you'll see.
