  •  Important thing to remember about GOP voters (1+ / 0-)

    A lot of Republican voters took Romney's nomination as a sign that the party, whatever its rhetoric, was basically operating along the lines of its 1980 platform, in other words, a reflection of fairly traditional mainstream Republicanism.  And that was something that at least potentially looked pretty good in the face of a slow economic recovery and Romney's self-presentation as Mr. Fix-it.

    I hope Romney's own words about the 47 percent, and especially since the election, combined with the rhetoric of most of their leading players, has started to dissuade people from that mistake.
