…. once you learn to fake sincerity, you’ve got it made!
Virginia Republicans are in the midst of a three-day gathering to sort through what happened in their across-the-board losses at the ballot box in 2013…
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spoke Saturday — a speech in which he tried to offer a vision for how the party can start winning again. Here’s the crux of the Cantor argument:
Winning elections is about convincing the voters that the we have their back, that we’re on their side. If we want to win, we must offer solutions to problems that people face every day. We have not done this recently and it has allowed Democrats to take power, it has allowed them to push their partisan politics, and even worse to enact their leftist agenda.
Cantor is right. Republicans have lost recent elections — both in Virginia and nationally — because they have been unable to a) prove to voters they have a positive vision for the country and b) effectively push back on the picture that Democrats have painted of them as cold, unfeeling plutocrats…
Apart from keeping an eye on the usual suspects, what’s on the agenda as we wrap up the weekend?
