1) Attack Democrats. 2) ... 3) Profit!

(CNN) “I tell you, that moment was not our best moment,” he said. “It would have been our best shot at winning the White House a chance to offer a true authentic, conservative choice rather than a big government echo, rather than a meek, ‘me too’ way of doing things.”


... and what choice would that be? *crickets chirping*

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Now, don't get me wrong. I expect the Republicans to attack anything the Democrats do, regardless of outcome. After all, the Democrats do the exact same thing.

No, what annoys the crap out of me is that GOP never seems capable of backing up their words with a coherent solution that isn't just a redmeat filled soundbite.

If you have a worthwhile idea, then present an alternative that reflects the problem. The issues facing our country are complex and require a degree of critical thinking and sacrifice. So, don't present a solution that could have been hastily written on a cocktail napkin.

Developing economic strategy in a manner similar to the Underpants Gnomes from South Park isn't exactly a winning solution, nor reassuring that you are competent enough to be handed the reigns of government again.

IMO, the Republicans are on a trajectory for remaining in the wilderness for a few more years. They are doing their best to sound like the Democrats in 2002. ie, ideologically bankrupt, reactionary, and completely and totally irrelevant.
