The Continuing Decline of the Republican Brand

What Republicans need is a mutiny

The party establishment is out to sea, so conservatives need to start rocking the boat.

(T)he public’s image of the GOP is that it is incompetent (think Hurricane Katrina), corrupt (think Jack Abramoff, Randy “Duke” Cunningham, etc.) and without principles (think wild spending, bailouts, earmarks and a lack of a true conservative vision). Republicans can try smoke and mirrors, but they really need new leaders who will reverse the big-government policies of Bush 43 and congressional Republicans and articulate and move a conservative agenda forward.

Democrats have nothing to fear from today’s Republican Party leaders.

Conservatives should no longer look to Republican politicians for leadership and should assume the role of leading the opposition to Obama and the Democrats. We believe we have a party and a country to save, and the GOP establishment is in our way. Let the rebellion begin.

  1. Dead as the Whigs.

  2. The GOP still seem very much alive.

    I would rather talk radio be irrelvant than the GOP because it would mean they were no longer getting their talking pionts from bitter, angry, crazy people. Talk radio never really took for lefties so if it disappeared. No big deal.

    as well.  nearly as difficult to find inroads into the crazy filter talk as it ever was.  a little bit easier since Obama, but he is also the perfect, tailor-made target.  racism is alive and well and disguised, or should i say, overlaid, quite nicely.

    too early, not making sense.  what i’m trying to say is hating blacks, for being blacks, has now hitched a ‘legitimate’ ride onto the liberal brand.  

    there is one women in our facility who continues to point out that Obama is half-black, half-white.  as in, whites own him too.  i applaud her effort.  but yeah, slow going.  they ain’t dead yet.

  3. when the entire system need flushing.
