An Open Letter to the GOP

Dear GOP establishment,

I don't know who to address this to. For the past 4 years it has been confusing to watch you grasp at straws hoping to grab onto something, anything that you can use as a weapon against the other side. My side. To be blunt you have no leadership. It's partially George W. Bush's fault. By choosing Cheney, a man who was never meant to run for President, he left an empty slot in which the next leader of the party should have been standing.

As a result it appeared as though you defaulted to George W. Bush's primary opponent John McCain in an attempt to distance yourself from the Bush years and move the party in a new direction. When that didn't work you were again left without a leader. So filling the void came Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and a parade of people who make a living pushing your party into an ideological corner. The end result was the failed candidacy of your most recent standard bearer, Mitt Romney.

You used to the party of Dwight Eisenhower. Now you are the party of Sarah Palin.

While I am probably the last person you would listen to for advice, and while I am not generally prone to trying to help my "political enemies" this is not simply "concern trolling" on my part. I genuinely want to help you. Follow me below the fold if you're ready to at least consider some real advice from a concerned citizen.
