Townhall Column

Here is it -- about how Republicans can recapture the spirit of '94. One of the paragraphs that bears repeating:

In short, congressional Republicans need to begin treating the base less like a rampaging beast to be placated, and more like a trusted friend to be consulted. Too often, party decision-making has a cliquish element reminiscent of an eighth grade cheerleading squad. Would it really hurt anyone for the politicians to turn to the people who fund, electioneer and vote for them most loyally and ask, “What do you think?”? Seeking input about the candidates for the party’s new leaders would be a great way to start the conversation.
