“Does anyone seriously believe that Kalifornia would allow oil or natural gas to be drilled for? They’d sit in the dark roasting or freezing to death before they’d even consider the idea.”

Republicans: the incredible shrinking party.

I wonder if the Whigs acted in a similar manner before they vanished so abruptly?

I realize that there will be a “Republican” party of sorts in numerous state governments for a while longer. But at the national level, as a party of national influence, the Republicans may be on verge of a collapse unprecedented in American politics.

If they lose the House in 2014, and fail to make any significant gains in 2016, I sense that they will not survive as a party of national influence afterwards. Their time will be over. A permanent minority party, and at most a minority party of slowly (but continually) dwindling effect. And that’s the best case scenario.

Wonder who will step up in their place?

oops,
quote in post 16 should have read:
“I think they’re all being drugged or something. Republicans in office everywhere are caving on everything.”
