Funny how many Democrats are giving advice to the Republicans...especially the Frums of the world who made a living losing to Republicans.

Did Demcorats listen to Republicans after the 1994, 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2010 elections about how to reach out to the voters they lost? Of course not.

Plus the death of the GOP is highly understated (as was the Democrats in the years I mentinoed). The GOP still has more Governors than the Democrats do, more House Seats and control more State Legislatures.

Democrats giving the advice are basically saying, be more like us and you'll win. Yet, when Republicans run as Democrat-lite they tend to lose. (McCain, Romney, Dole etc).
