    Given that the media is so biased, the only way that I can see the GOP making a big comeback will be for them to find a new way to get their message out. They should start with the little county party headquarters and start networking their way up.

    Frank Lunz lol

    I can never take him seriously again after the whole Republican Primary Fiasco. He's probably looking for a new job since the Republicans probably won't be calling him back for awhile....

    Strongly agree with ya there---but they really can start clean by losing the whole GOP tag.

    The GOP was hijacked by the neocons. Lose them, and we're on a path to healing.

    Has the party truly been hijacked by the neo-cons or has the media simply decreed that the case? If I listen to the media then I have to assume that ALL Republican voters are white protestants whose only goals in life are to overturn Roe.v.Wade and to stop gay marriage. The GOP needs to realize that the above is the prevailing image that MSM has branded them with and find ways to get the real message of Republicanism out. Check out How Obama Got Elected to see how the media skewed the image of the candidates.

    Exactly. Get rid of the riff-raff and you'll be fine. Most of them were chucked out in 2006 & the rest a couple weeks ago. Let the healing begin.
