As the media keeps pounding the GOP for having no leader after two devastating election cycles, it is becoming abundantly clear that they do have an unexpected ally. Barack Obama. This president's insistence on running up massive deficits, expanding government, and intentionally decimating free market capitalism, is just what the GOP needed. While moderate Democrats, independents, and guilty white Republicans are having buyers remorse, for voting for what they thought was a post partisan candidate, Obama and the democrats in congress continue to tack left. Polls are beginning to show an undeniable downward trend in his approval ratings, and his ability to handle the economy, deficits, and health care. The next question is, will the GOP take advantage of this golden opportunity, or simply try to moderate the Dem's policies and continue on this recent trend to become democrat lite. Maybe they should return to the conservatism of small government, low taxes, individual freedoms, and strong national defense. Maybe the referendum on the 2010 elections should be a warning to both political parties, "shrink the fed, or we'll have your head." Or how about "stop the spending, cuz your demise is pending."
