Why The Republicans Won’t Recover

by Brad Warbiany

Doug has been highlighting the reasons why the Republicans lost a few weeks ago. The question among many of us is whether they’ll have learned their lessons and have any chance of recovery. Judging by the people they’ve elected to party leadership positions, the answer is no.

And judging by what outgoing RNC chairman Mehlman says, it’s only going to get worse:

Or, as Mehlman told the GOP governors, back to “good policy that makes good politics.” He singled out an effort by outgoing Gov. Mitt Romney, another 2008 prospect, to expand health-care coverage to all Massachusetts residents. “That is the kind of innovation we need at the state level, and in Washington,” Mehlman said.

Hey Ken. We sent the Republicans to Washington to fight against this sort of “innovation”, when it was called HillaryCare. We don’t need you to offer the same tired stuff.

  1. Worse, the Republican leadership is now trying to silence the few voices of reform and limited government left in Congress.

  2. Well, if you follow statistical trends, the Republicans should recover the House in about 8 to 12 years. This cycle has been repeated over and over again for the last 100 years.

    But, 8 to 12 years is a loooong time to wait!
