Let's face it, the GOP needs to move further to the right for 2016 or they will lose again!

So I hope the republicans reading this start working on that plan!

Free advice from the DU! You are welcome!!

38. The entire span of the GOP. Two woman haters. Coulter won't vote for herself, though. Or at least..

Coulter says women shouldn't vote.

OTOH, this could be a nightmare. Imagine those two with unlimited airtime, making the rounds of the entire country.

They need to stick to the purest of conservative principles and purge their party of any that disagree.

Even ordinary voters should be publicly shamed if they espouse heresy. It is incumbent on the Party Faithful to enforce ideological conformity at all times and at all costs.

20. Newt will be available. Expect him to drop wife #3

in 2013 and marry #4. She will be a 25 yo college grad student, writing a thesis on Newt and the re-awaking of conservative politic in USA. Kinda similar to the Jack Welch wife dump. By 2014, he will have deluded himself into thinking everyone has forgotten all of his negatives. (He will see wife #4 as a "positive".) Will be a ton-of-fun.

There's another federal election in two years.

We did not win the House because liberals didn't show up in 2010. That let Republicans gerrymander themselves a majority.

We should stop making that mistake.

34. I would rather they move to the left, as should the Dems.

The people are ready to move that way. Great progress was made last night on the ballot initiatives. I would prefer a new repub party, or a new center right party and the Dems to become more liberal, more progressive.

Imagine a two party system where marriage equality is not fought over and climate change is acknowledged by both.

41. They need to be clearer about their opinions on rape

especially if they really believe there's really no such thing, or that it nevers ends in pregnancy, or that abortion after rape should be outlawed.

Please, please, please, tell us more about what you think about that...

42. No person can get nominated in that party unless the person moves to the right.

Christie will either be denied nomination by them or will be pushed so far to the right that he will be un-electable. Rubio is far right, but once his ethical stains become common knowledge, he will lose to any solid democrat. There is no one else of substance on their bench.
