    Re: THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS EXPERIENCING ITS

    I doubt that is the case. What they are expericencing is very similar to four years ago where the party leadership faced a critical decision in how it was going to move forward. They decided, basically, that the priority was to not work with Obama and force him into a one term guy. That was the plan. That didn't work. Now they have to have the same conversation again. However, how the party will move forward and its electoral prospects for the future will hinge in large part on their broader strategy. Not the blocking and tackling stuff like building their bench by finding good candidates to win races, but the strategic stuff like how to broaden their appeal beyond their base and how to build a better GOTV and ground game in states that are purple and blue.

    Why does John Boehner ( pronouced BAY-NOR, not Bone- er, though you'd guess otherwise) always look like he's in severe abdominal pain? Could somebody pass him a Tums, Prilosec or Gaviscon?

    Re: THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS EXPERIENCING ITS

    The Republican Party is at odds with itself.  On the one hand, they want smaller government.  But on the other hand, they want to control who can get married, what people can do with their own bodies, etc.

    Perfect example:  They complain that Obamacare will lead to the government dictating to Doctors what procedures they can and cannot perform and then turn around and try to pass laws forcing women to get vaginal ultrasounds.

    if they stay the way they are, they can't win national elections.  And if they try to stick with being pro-business/less government regulation, they won't win any local elections.

    I don't know where you get your numbers, but the gop and tee partee do NOT add up to 49% of the country.  And I don't think it's close.

    If you're referring to the election results, a good chunk of romney's votes were from decidedly independent moderates who are disinclined to ANY party at all.

    Also, don't forget the non-voting americans who either don't care or are disgusted with both parties and the process and just refuse to vote (or even register) out of spite.

    You do realize Repubs won on national level in 2000 and 2004 right? And now the Dems have won 2. Oh and before Bush, the Dems won 2 in a row. And before Clinton the Repubs won 3 in a row. Before that, well it was Carter so there's that. But before that, Reps 2 in a row. Before that Dems 2 in a row. Before that Reps 2 in a row. Before that....well...you see where I'm going with this...or at least I hope you do.

    Starting with Truman each party for most party has held the white house back to back with the exception of the Carter/Reagan/Bush cluster. Otherwise 2 and out, 2 and out, 2 and out.

    I think a more accurate view of history is that in 1964, Dems abandoned their hold on the confederate states by doing the right thing, and ever since, they have been struggling to regain the white male vote.

    Carter won the white house after a Republican impeachment.

    Clinton won the white house with a conservative Texas businessman running as a third party, taking votes away from the Republican incumbent.  He won again as an incumbent with a booming economy.

    I don't believe the Republican party is in its death throws, though - they still have better turnout for the mid-terms, and a Marco Rubio candidacy in 2016 could change the entire perception of the party.  The biggest threat to the GOP is division within the party - as long as the tea party folks and the moderate Republicans continue to vote in lockstep, despite having drastically different self-interests, the party will remain formidable.

    Moderates, blah.  There are no moderates.  If this election showed anything, it showed this supposed "moderate" middle controls everything.  If that was true, Romney would be president.
