If republicans can't get off the establishment train with people like Chris Christie, (and Jeb Bush WTF??) we're just going to have another 2012. This
same old same old status quo crap is what is causing your party to implode on itself.

The more Moderate GOP (Christie and Jeb) would argue the reverse, that the TP "train" is what is causing the "party to implode on itself".
Of course they would argue the reverse, and so would the MSM as always.
It is the American populace ...across hundreds of polls and elections that shows that candidates closer to the middle garner more "general" votes than
candidates on the fringe.
You can't blame the Media for that reality.
In the past 27 years, there have been 7 Presidential elections and the GOP has only won the Popular vote once in that time frame.
When Pres. GWB sold himself not only as Moderate, but a "Compassionate Conservative"...remember that phrase?
And some think the solution is that they haven't moved far right enough?
It is the ever more extreme "purity tests" that the right wing demands of it's candidates that is killing the GOP IMO.
Mitt Romney was first forced to the farthest right during the Primary debates and then had to etch-n-sketch...sprint back to the middle for the
General Election and he was unable to cross the distance.
Hell...the economy was pure wreckage at the time, I am not sure ANY President in history has ever managed to be re-elected with an unemployment rate
at 8%? The Whitehouse should have belonged to the GOP...if not for their continual slide to the farthest right.
Just saying...I don't think we will see GOP in the Whitehouse anytime soon unless the GOP civil war is ended in short order and the pandering to
And MORE...MORE..MORE Conservative will please the fringe...but doom the party.
