Oh, I don't know....The Republican Leadership Deficit
When major parties go into the political wilderness, they typically donít look to the same leaders that led them into it to help get them out again. Unfortunately for them, Republicans have mostly relied on holdovers and retreads from the Bush era for their leaders in Congress and their presidential tickets. Of course, simply replacing the old guard with new people that say and do more or less exactly the same things wonít be very effective, either.
I've seen a few prominent republicans before a camera lately stating the obvious. Obama just keeps wanting to raise taxes, has no interest in cutting spending and blames the other party simply for personal and political gain.
What else is new?
