<ik>Republicans are idiots. If they want to turn things around, they need to:

1) Start making a compelling case that tax cuts and deregulation has not been the cause of our economic problems. They didn't do this at all, which I find amazing. They did absolutely nothing to show how absurd it was for Obama to claim that these were “the failed policies that got us into this mess.”

Ryan and Romney did make this case, they did not however attack the Democaratic side. They did however make the case for what you wanted.

2) Lighten up on the anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage rhetoric. They may have strong feelings about it, but citizens are *deeply* divided on these issues. If anything, they should make it clear that they will leave it to the states to decide.

Why in a nation that is about evenly split it, is this a problem for one side and not the other? That is where I see the problem.
One side is extremist and the other side? If someone made an issue that Obama wants babies to be able to be killed, yes right until they are out of the body - death.
Both side have an equal number of extreme positions, Yet Republicans are expected to be perfect and it is OK for Democrats to suck big time

Don't get me wrong, I would prefer Republicans to be perfect. They are not they will have some stuff that is not 100 percent for all, so do the Democrats yet what do you hear?

3) Dial down the crazy on things like rejecting science (the "legitimate rape" fiasco, for example) or suggesting that if rape victims get pregnant, it's because it was what God intended (Mourdock). Many Republicans are living in the Middle Ages, and it is definitely hurting the Republican Party.

See above. The President of the United States of AMerica has stated he believes in abortion until the baby is completely out of the mother. There is not a more extreme position and nothing some nutjob can say anywhere is more screwed up, and I lean toward being pro-abortion

Have you heard some of the nuts that are Democrats? Al Gore and the environment is a whacked out as these loser Republicans.
Again, one side has to be perfect, the other side can suck unimaginably and they are the good guys.
