GOP needs a talent search
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cheri Jacobus

Original Article

Posted By:hornet, 12/13/2012 7:42:06 PM

The cavalcade of post-election autopsy analysis as the GOP and detractors attempt to make sense of it all has been interesting and instructive. The left-wing mainstream media and Democrats gleefully jeer that the Obama victory is proof positive the GOP is the party of old white men, is racist and sexist and condemned to the annals of history. It’s called gloating, and they are having a simply marvelous time rubbing the collective GOP nose in it. In the fullness of hindsight, history will view President Obama as perhaps the worst of our presidents. And as former GE CEO Jack Welch said, Mitt Romney was

No, the GOP needs to define what it stands for. Is it Reagan or Boehner? Allan West or Lindsay Graham? Lincoln or McCain? (OK, that last one is a lose-lose.)

Establish a charter. Anchor to a set of principles that conservatives can get behind. Ah, but the party won´t do that...it´s far too limiting, dontcha know.

Here´s another thought: as individuals, don´t vote for the party; vote for the person instead. Whether the GOP thrives or disappears doesn´t really matter, does it?

These teams...these parties only exist if we allow them to. When they fail us so miserably as the GOP has, why prop it up? Why try to "bring it back" to something it never was? To heck with it - let it go. Again, vote for the right person who´s running.

The article is primarily about the small and financially incestuous
Republican buddy system of consultants
and advisors who often
over promise and under produce.
Which helped produce the ORCA disaster.
Also the need for a Republican farm system and training academy
to get the best and brightest to run .
In addition , wealthy Republican donors like Sheldon Adelson
should start demanding excellence
and results before donating.
FTA- " And as former GE CEO Jack Welch said, Mitt Romney was perhaps the best presidential hopeful of a lifetime ."
"The nation dangles dangerously from a fiscal cliff not because the GOP is wrong, but because we were outgunned " .

I´ll make it easy for the GOP (RINOs)...

...start your search in the TEA party. And just do what they tell you to do.

1) Been in for over two terms--you´re gone.
2) Go into the Lobbyist bidness after CONgress...watch your back.
3) If in doubt, go home and don´t darken our (America´s) doorstep again in public.

Argggghhhh, it´s getting so old. The GOP needs fresh faces, new talent, new message, etc., etc.

John Boehner has said repeatedly, it´s all about the spending...we can keep spending, spending, spending, spending.

Media reports that the GOP is being obstructionist and that President Obama is Glory personified and we must listen to him b/c his opponents are eeeeeevil.

We don´t need new, new, new...we need an honest media. Until we that, we´re screwed because our message doesn´t stand a chance of getting out.

OH -- and we need actual voting monitors and prosecution for voter fraud. I´m convinced there was a whole helluva lot of it this time around.

I´m with #2. This party needs to dump all those retread consultants who continue to lose elections. When I read that Romney hired all McCain´s boys, I was really disappointed. That is a self important group of limp-d--k, overpaid do nothings if ever such a group decided to get into politics!

The Tea Party did a pretty good job with Rand Paul and a whole bunch of candidates in 2010 and will do so again in 2014. As for 2016, we have a really great bench of conservatives who will take the field and I can´t wait.

OK, Periwinkel...tell us what you really think of those RNC consultants, please?

No. The GOP needs to dissolve, and a new party needs to rise that believes in returning flower to We The People.

The GOP is lost. Too many top positions held by progressives... look at the last 3 candidates! No, time to shake things up.

I hope DeMint is working on building a new nation with the states that want to secede. The current system is so broken, we´ll never see a fair election again.

It used to be that they could only steal a couple points; Now they just automatically vote from the SS database, using a program that calculates the # of Barry votes poer district.

Our new nation could be solely based on the constitution, bill of rights & led by Judeo-Christian values. The Free America Nation would not have parties... just elect leaders. Our leaders would be part of the communities, keeping their real job while meeting to address issues as needed.

Who would want to live in this nation? TPers, Libertarians, Independents & Ron Paulites. Focus on freedom. No condemnation for being different & no compensation for being different. Community welfare not nationalized programs. No illegals... No special interest groups... just equal free citizens.

Leaders? DeMint, Rubio, Palin, West, Paul & many more freedom loving patriots.

What the GOP needs is some obscure senator with a couple of tripy autobiographies who looks great on the important shows of the day: The Colbert Report, Dr. Phil, The Joy of Cooking, SportsCenter and Iron Chef. What makes any of you people think the American people care about "the issues". Are you out of your mind?

Obama will delay individual mandate

By delaying the individual mandate by a year, President Obama will keep millions in the dark, thus preventing those millions from switching from Democrat to Republican for next year´s congressional midterm elections. Keeping as many voters as possible as ignorant as possible for as long as possible (at least until after the midterms) is the only strategy Obama, Valerie Jarrett and congressional Democrats can employ that takes care of their No. 1 priority: saving their political hides. Cynical? Yes. Dishonest? Of course. Going to happen? You bet. As we hear story after story

Holding my nose, I engaged in RNC bean counting. It isn’t pretty. What prompted this? Yet another Republican National Committee (RNC) cringe-worthy press release proudly patting itself on the back with the announcement of a mid-level job created to “reach out” to African-American media and the hiring of (presumably) an African-American to fill the post, who will report to another mid-level ethnic minority hire charged with reaching out to minorities. This comes on the heels of a press release announcing the addition of two men of Asian ethnicity whose mid-level job description is outreach to Asian ethnic voters and

A tale of two Hispanic

A Hispanic Republican senator drinks water on TV, and the media demolish him. A Hispanic Democratic senator is accused of having sex with underage prostitutes, and the media ignores it. Freshman Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, by any definition a rising star in politics, was an obvious choice to deliver the GOP response to the State of the Union address. He’s smart, a great communicator, hard-working, sincere, and proud of his Cuban heritage and his Republican affiliation. He connects his heritage with his reasons for being a Republican in ways that scare the heck

Mitt's 'quiet on Benghazi'
strategy is smart
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cheri Jacobus    Original Article
Posted By: hornet- 10/24/2012 2:08:47 PM     Post Reply
Since Monday night's debate, I've heard scores of Romney supporters express disappointment and surprise that Mitt Romney did not hammer away at President Obama on growing scandal regarding the attacks in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. But it likely wasn't a Romney gaffe — Romney's near-silence on Benghazi was on purpose.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Elizabeth K.

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are
