Politicians must appear to be compassionate and empathetic to get the most votes. Capitalism (hard work, self-reliance, forebearance) is a hard sell.
Look at David Cameron in the UK, under him the Tories are gaining ground for the first time in years because he appears to be a socialist. Brits will find out for sure only after he is elected.
Republicans must learn to say one thing, and do another. This trait comes easy to a true politician.

"Republicans must learn to say one thing, and do another."
I don't agree. In fact this is dead wrong. In fact, this iw what we have now. Party of "smaller government" my@ss. Etc.
"This trait comes easy to a true politician."
Yep. Doesn't make it right, and doesn't work out in the long term.
