I just read that a new poll shows that 70% of Americans disapprove of how the Republican Party is handling the current debt crisis and government shutdown. While I can’t predict the future I can speculate that they may fall from grace in next year’s congressional elections if their behavior doesn’t rapidly and radically change.
Apparently I’m not along in my assessment. I just read an article by David Frum where he outlines, “Seven Habits of Highly Ineffective Political Parties.” Frum is a conservative journalist and author who has been extremely active in Republican politics since immigrating from Canada years ago. It is that which gives this current article credibility and worth. He outlines the seven things a political party must do to fail and makes the case the today’s GOP is guilty of all seven.
