GOP civil war forms up as circular firing squad.
Get a clue, GOP. There's no way to put a positive or "creative" spin on conservative "values". You are the party of insatiable greed, heartlessness, religious intolerance, misogynism and racism. You absolutely do not get "it", witness you speak of finding a "new" Karl Rove or replacing your political consultants. Your consultants can put a different shade of lipstick on the pig, but they're still stuck with your nasty conservative values.
The predicted civil war within the Republican party following Mitt's loss, will doubtless be a circular firing squad composed of of rich, elitist white males, white males who wannabe rich and elitist, nastily extreme and markedly unchristian "Christians", Tea Partiers and the subservient women folk of all groups of the aforesaid males.
We need to think creatively about big issues, philosophy, and how we can relate conservative values to the needs of a wider range of voters," wrote Ed Morrissey, a blogger at HotAir.com. "This will require a new set of national leaders for the Republican Party and conservatism. We need men and women who can think creatively, produce a positive agenda that isnít defined by an oppositional nature, and who can eloquently communicate that agenda and the values that drive it."
The realignment inside the GOP won't just be at the level of its public faces. The party will have to confront a consultant culture that has stilted innovation and growth in winning elections.
" I think there was a big bomb that just went off in the party and people need to see where the bodies lie and let the dust settle," said the Republican operative. "The party needs to find the Rove of 1996, rather than Karl Rove who created George Bush and got him reelected twice and spent $500 million in the next two cycles."

1. There's no way to put a positive or "creative" spin on conservative "values".
That isn't entirely true....The most gullible,the easiest ones to lie to,successfully,are themselves and each other....In their bubble and in their narrow little minds,this will all be resolved in short order......
