The Agenda

Allahpunit, over at Hot Air, makes this statement:
“How can the Republican Party rebound? The first step would be to quit letting Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham set its agenda.”
He's right, but it's deeper than that. I'm reminded of a time during the Civil War. (No, I wasn't there, but I've read the history.) The story might be apocryphal, but it's told about General US Grant while in the Wilderness Campaign.

The story is told that a number of his officers were arguing about what Lee might do during a particular time period. Grant listened to the discussion for a while then told them that he was damned tired of hearing about what Lee might do. He was more interested in what he was going to do, and Lee would learn to worry about that.

If the GOP is letting Limbaugh, Hannity, and Ingraham set the discussion, then the GOP had no business in office. We've got to decide what we're going to do and let the pundits talk about that. If our leadership can't handle the burden then we need new leaders.

A better step might be to quit letting the religious right choose party policy.

At the bottom of the long list of "how NOT to run a political campaign" items that we should all have read by now, there should be one remedy.

"Lead by example"
