    As long as the Tea Baggers are calling the shots, they will be in "disarray." Between the Baggers and the population demographics, the GOP is going to have to redefine themselves in order to survive.

    good grief, just because the Republicans aren't all marching in lockstep like the Democrat party does, with bribes, threats of their jobs, etc etc.

    And another article that looks like it could of been released from the DNC

    surprise surprise.

    The GOP had better get their act together if they want to save themselves an ass kicking in 2012. They already have a minimal chance at unseating Obama but if they keep up the infighting they will turn back the House.

    but your all's concern for Republicans is touching

    The disapproval of the Republican party is much worse than that of Obama

    On top of that, people personally like Obama.......they hold their noses at the Republicans

    Rapprochement between Boehner, representing the GOP Old Guard, and the radicals in the TPM is unlikely, as the latter are not interested in sound governance. The problem for Boehner, of course, is the TPM is reckless and irresponsible, they demonstrated that in the Debt Ceiling debacle. And again with the botched middle class tax cut stand-off.

    You can call it "disarray" if it makes you feel better. The dirty little secret is that there is always conflict within the republican party. That's how politics works. If republicans stayed stagnated following fools like Barry and Harry they would look like zombie democrats. Ever see Harry Reid speak? The man has no soul.
