The GOP's quarter century of presidential election fail

via David Frum:

In the quarter century since 1988, there have been six presidential elections. Only once—once!—did the Republican candidate win a majority of the popular vote, and then by the miserable margin of 50.73 percent.

1. Frum is sounding like he needs therapy since the election.

All that whining doesn't pass for introspection.

2. He's very good at diagnosing the problem

Haven't seen any solutions yet, though.

3. You can Thank Ronald Raygun for this

He planted the seeds by using the southern strategy to it's fullest extent. He told welfare queen stories and invited the christian right in. The christian right is the taliban with suits. They racism and the nutjobs slowly took over the party until the became the regional southern party much like the dixiecrats.
Thirty years later a totally destroyed party.

Thank you Ronnie.
