After the 2012 elections, the Republicans sounded the alarm.
Most inside the party leadership sensed a need to reboot or reinvent the party. They were on the wrong side of evolving demographics and the status quo might work in district elections but on the national stage, their message would need to be modified if the GOP was going to send someone to the White House in 2016.
So new party leaders have developed something incredible.Myvalvecaps offers you the best range of
The Republicans have invented … the wheel. (I was going to try the same literary device on a new mousetrap, but it was going to be far too complicated and contain violent images of decapitated mice.)

Fellow freshman Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called Rubio’s work on the immigration bill “a crock.” That quote didn’t come from the Lamestream Media, he said it on the Rush Limbaugh show.
So now Rubio is taking a beating from the Grand Poobah of Conservatism? That doesn’t bode well for Rubio or any Republican in 2016.

The Republicans tend to have an issue. They can’t disagree without casting aspersions and hurling allegations of wrongdoing.
Cruz should say, “I really disagree with Marco on this bill. I hope we can work together to improve it.”
Instead, he calls it a crock and accuses him of “playing politics” – a charge I still think is ridiculous when one politician says it about another. Am I writing a column or “playing newspapers”?
Is there a difference?
Senators are politicians. If they aren’t good politicians, they are bad senators.
As long as Republicans can’t get together inside their own party on policy matters and continue to cannibalize their own members, 2016 looks like another blue year in the White House.
