Party leaders go on 'listening tour' with eyes on future
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it's time for the Republican Party to give up its "nostalgia" for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election.
... "So our ideas need to be forward looking and relevant. I felt like there was a lot of nostalgia and the good old days in the [Republican] messaging. I mean, it's great, but it doesn't draw people toward your cause," Mr. Bush said.
Now if only Americans can forget the line up of the people heading up this new Republican Party "re-branding" effort - the usual suspects; Barbour, Bush, Romney, McCain, Jindal, Cantor, Boehner, et al.
Not to mention if only America can forget Jeb has a brother.
