Erase Mitt? Be more polite? Respect voters? Help rebuild the economy? Engage in healthy leadership?
Hell, no! In the end (I suspected this) Republicans don't want to change at all. Beef up their PR? Maybe. But they still believe they're right about everything and the only reason the Democrats won was that the public really didn't understand what the Republicans were saying. Change what they say and how they behave? No way!
Political Wire has this from the Wall Street Journal:
"Some top GOP officials worry their message is wrong for a rapidly diversifying population, and that fundamental shifts in policy may be required. But the more dominant voice, and the one gaining currency within the center of the party, says such drama isn't necessary."
"It asserts that Mitt Romney's loss to President Barack Obama was primarily a tactical failure, a combination of poor articulation of GOP positions and a weak effort to register voters and move them to the polls. Better execution on both, they say, would have swung the few hundred thousand votes in a few states that would have tipped the presidential election the other way." ...WSJ
This, of course, is great news for the Democrats and for America. As long the Republican party continues to alienate and disgust so many of us, the more time we'll have to rebuild America -- its broken infrastructure, its economy, its spirit, and its pride.
