Ralph Reed: Thanks so much.
When I was elected state party chairman in Georgia in 2002, we had not elected a Republican governor in my state in 134 years. And in fact, if you go back to the time since the first Europeans landed on the North American continent 400 years earlier, we had actually never elected a Republican governor since we became a colony, without the benefit of the occupation of federal troops. Which worked for awhile, but then they left. So its not really a good long-term strategy.
And what Im going to talk about a little bit today first of all, I want to talk about 2014. But second of all, I want to talk about some lessons that I learned not only in that experience but in the nine presidential campaigns that Ive been privileged to work on, about how, just for example, in my state we went from having neither chamber of the legislature also we had not held since Reconstruction neither chamber had ever been held, hadnt have a governor, had neither US senator; and the Democrats controlled both US Senate seats from my state, and they had a majority of the Congressional delegation.
And when the dust settled after two cycles, we had every statewide constitutional officer, we had both US Senators, both the State House and the State Senate; and we had a majority of the Congressional delegation.

And on, and on, and on, and on.
If the Republicans can't hold the House and take the Senate in 2014 after all this Democrat curruption, the Republicans should disband and sail away into the sunset...forever!!!!
Not interested, I'm on medicare. I'm interested in adding jobs and rebuilding our economy plus disengage ourselves from world policeman, nation builder and trade deficit financing. If this group gets their ideas from meeting at The Breakers, they have no future as election winners. I suggest meeting somewhere on Main Street where voting working families reside for a few more ideas.
Well, I gotta tell ya. I am so happy for your security and happiness in being enrolled in medicare. It must be wonderful for it to close your eyes to the travesty that ObamaCare is, and to the destruction to this country it will cause.
You’re all about jobs? Why are you not interested in a law that Destroys them?
Your post reads like “I got mine, too bad for the rest of you”.
Sorry you read my post that way. I would like to have everyone have what I had. An opportunity to work and to have some old age security, I want that kind of America.
I would appreciate more explanation in your post about laws? to be changed to restore jobs to America and why Obamacare would ruin the country [maybe it would I don’t know that much about it}. Do you know why? I googled it and just got ‘socialism’ thanks,
There have been Numerous posts here on the jobs-detrimental nature of Obamacare. Search for a post about the 100 unintended consequences of Obamacare orthe ACA.
Some companies are laying off to get under 50 employees. Many are reducing hours to 28 or less to reduce the number of fulltime employees. Many companies will decline to hire above 50 even if there might be a need to. This ‘healthcare’ law is a job destroying travesty.
