In it was explained that the G.O.P. must begin to reshape their image, create a concise national policy direction and message, put a face on on the problems that the nation faces and turn it into a common enemy to rally behind Republicans against. It also pointed out the we must find a voice for the party that could convey our message and recruit Americans in a political battle to combat that common enemy.
The article took us through a national audition of Republicans to find the best people who could be that voice and the face of the G.O.P..
Naturally such a discussion involved those whom may be running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 and although the G.O.P. can not wait until 2012 to start getting back on track, it brings rise to the question, who would you like to see be the nominee?
There is a long way to go between now and then and much can and will happen to change the opinions that you may have today. But knowing what those current opinions are helps to establish the direction people are looking for the Republican Party to go in.
Awareness of that direction allows us to build momentum in that direction. It allows us to shape policies that people want and a message that is in tune with what people want to hear and are willing to pay attention to.
By knowing whom Republicans are currently leaning towards for President in 2012, we are given an indication of what they are most concerned with and the type of qualities that Republicans voters feel the nation needs in our next President.
Some potential Republican presidential nominees excel in management or economics or both. Others are more known for foriegn policy experience and abilities or for their anti-establishment, outside-the-beltway image.
Whatever the attributes are, each candidate is unique and among voters certain unique qualities are more important than others.
During times of war, people often have a propensity to favor a figure who brings deft military experience to the table.
During times of economic crisis voters focus on someone with a proven and successful background in in the financial market.
Currently our nation is in difficult economic times but America is also currently in the middle of a crisis of faith. A crisis of faith in government. And although it is not always apparent these days, we are also in the middle of a war.
Under these circumstances, by knowing who Republicans favor for the presidential nomination right now, we are seeing within whom they feel is what we need to deal with all that we face as a nation right now.
So even though there is much work for Republicans to do, not just for 2012 but before next years midterm elections, let us know which candidate you currently think is the leader America needs right now.
Take a moment ot consider those prospects which are potential candidates and let us establish a sense of what the type of party they wish us to be.
