To me, the GOP fails to get the basic message of conservative economics across to the public. Simply stated, the message is: A rising tide lifts all boats. Rather than the divisive Democrat message of "He gets 50% of the economic pie and I only get 10%, so gov't should take some of his away and give it to me", why not stress that if you get 10% of the economic pie but the pie doubles in size, don't you have twice as much now than you did before? The Dems use the class warfare idea, while the GOP's best response has been to yell "Oh yeah!" and no follow up. The GOP needs to figure out a way to tell the general public that success in business is good for everyone, including the gov't. Have any of you been hired by a poor person? I think the GOP needs to reframe the message that success for one is good for all.

Good post. The GOP constantly screams about spending cuts and they don’t work unless your goal is to go into recession and making the deficit problem worse.. The only economic solution to our debt problem is economic growth. Period. Obama has instituted so many regulation that are crushing economic growth that we will never be able to get out of this mess if nothing changes. The GOP message needs to be to educate the public on pro-growth policies. Just slashing spending will never work.
