Obama and the Democrats annihilating the Republican Party?

An interesting claim. I don't think so, but it's an interesting attempt to shift blame for failure to articulate Republican / Conservative policies.

What is hurting the Republican Party?

The inability to reach out to all citizens in the US.
The statement that 47% of the country are 'takers'. (Romney)
The perception of being anti-minority. (African-American, Hispanic, Gays, women)
The unfortunate statements by Republican legislators regarding 'rape'.
The comparison of the location of Red states with the division of the US during the Civil War.
There are some Republicans who have stated that there needs to be a revamping of some Republican strategies in recruitment. However, the Speakers announcement about Obama out to annihilate the party of Lincoln is disingenuous.

There are those in Fayette County who decry the policies of both the Democrats and Republicans. But when one who does this is an advocate of disenfranchising all who 'work' for the government and identifies with the 'conservative or libertarian movement, the red flags go up! There are many in this country and this county, black, white, Asian, Native American , who stood hand in hand with those who had been disenfranchised under the implementation of our Constitution and won the right to vote for all legal and law abiding citizens of our country.

There are some rising stars in the Republican Party. Are they being encouraged? It is discouraging when the elected leader of the House cannot get consensus to move on bills that will benefit all citizens. This Congress, under the leadership of Reid and Boehner has the lowest rating for effectiveness. A Congress that does not work together - does not work for the American people.

There was a peaceful election in 2012 - no riots, revolutionary actions, no coup. Our country is admired for this. The United States respects the desire of the American people as indicated by their vote. A very few spoke of secession, reminding some of the ugliness of the issues of the Civil War.

If Republicans or Democrats feel that their party is misunderstood, they need to look within for the reason.

The GOP needs a witty,

The GOP needs a witty, telegenic gay atheist who pounds on the precepts of personal freedom and prosperity -- nothing else. Full stop.

But they won't. Instead, they will dance with the one that brought 'em -- abortion.
