The RNCís Fix-It Committee
National Review ^ | 12/12/12 | Jim Geraghty

Posted on 12/12/2012 10:02:32 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, spoke to NRO yesterday morning about the committee’s new Growth and Opportunity Project, which is led by a five-member panel that will review the operations and strategies of the RNC and Republican party as a whole. The members of that panel are Sally Bradshaw, a veteran adviser to former Florida governor Jeb Bush; Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for President George W. Bush; and three RNC committee members — Zori Fonalledas of Puerto Rico, Henry Barbour of Mississippi, and Glenn McCall of South Carolina.

Sounds like a reasonably diverse group...don't really know any of them except for Ari Fleischer, who I thought was a decent Press Secretary.

Judging by only the names I recognize, I can easily imagine what the recommendations of this group will be.

Yawn.

I've come to have nothing but contempt and hatred for the republican party, exceeded only by my contempt and hatred for the demonrat party.

Since high school, I've watched Nixon resign in disgrace; Ford be ineffective and become a target for satire and laughter; Carter damn near destroy the country, and finally, Reagan comes along and undid some of the damage and set the stage for continued improvement. Hallelujah!

Since Reagan, I've watched Bush the elder systematically dismantle Reagan's political and legislative legacy and, perhaps purposefully, lose to Clinton, who then continued what Bush had started, putting us back on the road to socialism; followed by Bush the younger and his Congress, who then finished off any remaining remnants of Reaganism, along with any and all republican claims to fiscal responsibility.

Then, I watched Lame McCain, perhaps purposefully, lose to obama, followed by Romney, perhaps purposefully, losing to obama, running the most pathetic campaign since Dole, perhaps purposefully, lost to Clinton.

It is hard to listen to what republicans claim they stand for when their actions speak so loudly. They don't believe their own words, and even if they do, they appear to be ashamed of such beliefs.

As such, the republicans remove any and all who seem to hold such conservative beliefs from committee positions, despite those members having won overwhelmingly in 2010, giving Boner the power to cave.

From all experience and appearances, republicans are disgusting, poor excuses for political opposition who seemingly go out of their way to lose, perhaps purposefully, since nothing else explains such ineptness.

Maybe it's not being inept? It looks deliberate, over and over again, when they let the demonrats define who they are and NEVER offering a counter argument.

The things that would keep them off the ash heap of history, and provide them “growth and opportunity” off into the distant future, might cost them something in the short run.

Which means, of course, that they will never do them.

Prediction: The conclusion will say that Republicans should continue to be more like Liberal Democrats. This single move to the Left will insure that Republicans will continue to lose elections at all costs.

The GOP is still grasping a straws hoping to find a way to make itself relevant.

This committee isn’t the answer.

Get some principles and then stand behind them. Quit being the lite version of the Democratic Party. Preach the message of an ownership society and succeeding on your own terms, not the terms of the government or elites.

Ahhhh, who am I kidding?
