Washington DC (Storch Report) — Republicans took their mid-term campaign to a wave controlling both the House and the Senate, and they can thank the American electorate for finally rejecting President Obama’s policies and perhaps in so doing saving a Party from its possible demise.
If anyone in the Republican Party thinks they won by anything but by default, they should be kicked by the Dems Donkey where the sun doesn’t shine.
The Republican Party is a Party without a brand. No one knows who they are, other than an alternative to what obviously hasn’t worked for a nation under the Obama administration.
However, it is a Party with the right policies for a Democracy: small government, pro business, lower taxes, fewer entitlements, pro-capitalism and strong defense.
These policies are diametrically opposite to the policies of the Obama administration; although Obama was not on the ballot his policies were and this is precisely what the electorate finally rejected after six years of a rudderless ship floundering in a sea of crises.
There is an opportunity here for the Republicans, perhaps their last, to renew and rejuvenate the Party. They should forgo celebration, immediately call a brainstorming session among their leaders, focus and redefine their brand and determine how they will communicate their policies to the public with a singular voice and move a stagnate nation forward by uniting the Congress rather than dividing it.
The Party has too many divisive factions within, moderates, right wingers, tea party, libertarians and conservatives.
Unify the Party with one voice.
Obama created a nation divided, with socialistic/Marxist policies.
Republicans, however, have a Party they allowed to be divided by a lack of strong leadership, perhaps analogous for other reasons to what the Dems allowed with Obama, a passive progressive leading from behind.
The Republicans have an opportunity now to make it a Party of inclusion, expand its base within the changing demographics and deliver a unified message.
Otherwise they could go down in history as the Party of the past.
