The headline says it all!  The approach the GOP has taken since the first election of the President.  The problems are Democratic?  The problem is precisely politics as there has been little if any compromise on the political scene with the major goal of the GOP to stall until winning the election…..Oops!

  You said it accurately as in 1979 and 1991, had the GOP moved to the middle at all, and had Romney had any advisors who good give him grounds for consistent positions on some issues Romney could well be our President today.  However, the country as a whole ,thankfully ,does not take the Mesa County approach and try to solve issues by electing officials on party line alone.

And yes, the issues of the day are Republican issues as well, along with Libertarian, Independent, Tea Party etc! It will take compromise or we will have another do NOTHING congress!

And which stellar candidate do the GOP have to put up against Sen. Udall this next cycle?  Another Coors?  Maybe you can throw your hat in the ring Rick!

Those businesses can thank people like you for blocking a public option in health care reform.

Mr. Wagner, it is time that you faced the fact that your party blew it. Bringing social issues to the forefront and alienating minorities, women, and young people in the process cost the Republicans greatly. If your party had stuck to the economy and gave SPECIFIC ideas for increasing revenue and decreasing spending, the White House could have been yours. It is time the Republicans stop having the tail (Tea Party) wag the dog or face becoming a minor party in US politics.
