2. Those 2 things ARE a problem for them

The GOP is shedding voters faster than the Democratic party is. Americans shop on price and brand and that has been their recipe for success -- tough military and no new taxes (at least that was the promise).

But I think the real problem for any political movement is that it has to be FOR something. Kerry lost in 2004 because he didn't stand strongly for something. Likewise Romney was unbeleivable when he said 12 million new jobs (or whatever number it was) so his campaign attracted mostly people who were voting AGAINST Obama.

In a world that is increasingly full of complaining spectators, the way to stand out is to DO something.
