While I have been busy working on Los Angeles Politics, I see the Republicans around the country have lost the plot.
What is the story of 2012? Read the Surber Rule:

Stay on message. Remember the Surber Rule: The economy alone will get a Republican elected president next year. Talk about nothing else.
