To much acclaim, the Republican National Committee released its road map for reform in March, emphasizing that the path to success called for moderating the party’s position on immigration, courting a more diverse set of officeholders, and building the GOP around pragmatic governors rather than polarizing members of Congress.
Of course, all of that has very little to do with why they keep getting their asses kicked at the national level: The dirty little secret the RINOs (and those pushing them) don’t want you to know is that the last GOP President to run up massive victories was Ronald Reagan (and GHWB running on his coat-tails, before turning into a mushy RINO and a one-term president). The GOP has run nothing but moderates since, and has either lost convincingly, or barely eked out very narrow wins.
So, yeah, apparently the party hasn’t learned anything. But not the way the hack who wrote this piece means it.
