Republicans: GOP Needs To Get With The Times

The GOP is in a state of shock because it convinced itself that voters wanted a return to the past (like the year 1812!).

So they settled on a party platform of supply-side Jesus, Bush tax extensions so that these could "trickle-down" to the poor (there they went again!), getting rid of Social Security and any other programs that might help the poor and middle class, health care, along with their opposition to minority rights (LGBT and immigrants, for example) and expected the new voters to fall in line!

And they went to the most rabid extremes by getting the Rollers to tell people who to vote for and to discourage any of the opposition from voting. (e.g. Rick Scott and Florida.)

When this all backfired, the Pubs went into a state of disbelief, denial and then shock. (Gov. Christie said that Mitt was terribly upset at losing. Oh really?)

Unless and until they get rid of the TPs and their other fanatics (religious and otherwise), they are doomed! Period.
