GOP Needs.....

One of my favorite writers is Victor Davis Hanson. He writes to the GOP over at Pajamas Media:
"A Simple Conservative Message

There is a lot of anguish among Republicans as they look at the dismal polls and the even more depressing performance of their candidates in various preliminary House races. New books and prophets forecast an end to conservatism, and a need to formulate a new sort of muscular liberalism to meet new challenges. Expect more such nostrums if Barack Obama wins in the fall.

What mystifies is the paralysis of Republicans and their impotent protestations that “Bush did it”. The truth is that Congressional Republicans, responsible for turning principles into governance, deserve to lose—unless they craft clear positions that won’t be compromised and then offer them as alternative choices to the voters this fall."

His message is clear. Why-O-Why do the GOP members of Congress not see what message wins? Do they pander only to themselves, and feel secure in their own district and thus not join in the frey?

Read the complete article by Victor Davis Hanson here!

The detail in his analysis is quite awakening.

Perhaps the time is here to form a "New GOP?"
