It is amusing how many people in my circle who delighted in the Democrats’ triumph last fall (and thus would not seem to have any interest in a Republican revival) have been telling me just what the GOP needs do to remain viable. And from what I’ve read on the web, they’re not alone. Other lefties lately smug in Obama’s triumph dispense reams of advice to the GOP.
They tell me the GOP can’t win if it remains the party of “No,” yet are at pains to remember what exactly the Democrats stood for in 2006 when they won congressional majorities. (And many of them can’t really identify what Obama stood for beyond Hope and Change. Oh, and yeah, and that he wasn’t George W. Bush.)
