  •  Repugs are Still Formidable (8+ / 0-)

    every POTUS election they lose, there's a debate about hie the repugs are becoming a regional party and they're about to begin an internal war. Repugs never change, they simply double down on their corporate conservatism when they lose elections. And they're patient. The voting public feels they only have two choices for prez and other federal offices: Repug or Dem. Repugs aren't afraid of losing elections like Democrats are, that's why the GOP can nominate their extreme candidates and, if they lose, they'll just try again and they'll eventually win if their patient enough. The repugs aren't down, they lost the 2012 battle but they're in it for the long haul, or "war" as Jay called it. Dems only can see as far as the next battle so they don't demand more of their candidates because they're so afraid of losing elections.
