    " clear path forward...".

    Not to worry...much more of the same should work fine...

    "...divided as ever...".

    When the gop is perfect in every way...why would the gop be divided...

    "...improve the Republican brand...while not upsetting hard-line conservatives...".

    Whatever the gop does, let's hope they do not upset the hard-line conservatives...

    "...alienated so many people...".

    Not so...more demonizing will 'un-alienate' those who were alienated...

    "...need to abandon harsh rhetoric on illegal immigration, women's issues and the social safety net...".

    No need to abandon harsh rhetoric on those who deserve it...

    "...marginalizing grassroots supporters who favored presidential candidates like former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann or Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul...".

    America can only hope that santorum and bachman will continue to be the presidential face of the gop and that paul will continue to win over potential voters.

    "...Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a conservative favorite...".

    More political cowbell?

    I rest my case!

    Agenda items:

    1) Reverse opposition to reforming or dropping the Electoral College now that we lost again.
    2) Find more effective ways to disenfranchise anyone who might vote against us.
    3) Seek more money from corporate people.
    4) Add paranoia germs to drinking water nationwide
    5) Cut funding to NPR and PBS while increasing funding for selected AM radio stations
    6) Find better ways to gerrymander
    7) Research into more effective ways of confusing voters
    8) Find a more effective way to say NO
    9) Buy an even stronger leash for our next Presidential candidate
    10) Rehabilitate Sarah Palin
    11) Defund public education to prevent educated future voters
    12) Legalize fully automatic weapons in hopes they will be used to shoot only liberals
    13) Bow down more deeply to the NRA and other organizations we're afraid of

    Yup. They have a lot of hard work to do . . . .

    What is no doubt on the agenda are plans in several states to alter electoral voting to reflect House districts, magically giving GOP candidates the majority despite being outvoted statewide. Mr. Priebus, unable to win one the old fashioned way, can hardly contain himself over this one. It's in process now in VA and PA. While they're at it, they can award the coveted "Hater of the Year" broken beer bottle. Hatch is in the running for "Obstructionist of the Year".

    Are they looking for a soul or just trying to find out how to convince Americans that they have one?

    I wonder what action the GOP will take after this 'soul searching' to help our country?

    Ban video games?
