Let’s talk about the truth and some people who are not able to handle the truth.

What do you think would happen to you or me if we went and threw barricades at the White House? We’d be thrown in jail.

What do you think people would say to us? That we’ve lost our minds? That we should know better? Definitely, that’s what they would say.

But there are some who are defending the misdirected actions of some veterans and Tea Party members of calling the President a Muslim, ‘take your hand off the Quran come out with your hands up’, carrying confederate flags to the White House and basically vandalizing federal property by moving it and throwing it in front of the home of the Commander-in-Chief. It’s embarrassing.

Why are they doing this? Because they know this:

That Republicans are in trouble…deep trouble, they know it. They know the American people blame Republicans, Tea Party Republicans for hijacking the rest of the party and the American people and shutting down the government.

And it gets worse, if Republicans don’t wake up soon they’re doomed. Maybe they are already.

A recent Gallup poll shows the Republican Party is now viewed favorably by only 28% of Americans, down from 38% in September. That is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992.

What they’re facing is what people in the business world call a damaged brand. It happened to Kmart. They let Walmart roll right over them. Blackberry did the same with Apple.

I asked the vice chairman of, Howard Bragman, what Republicans were thinking when it comes to brand management.

He said quite simply quote, they’re not thinking. They’re thinking about how to get out of quicksand he said. They were they’d have realized long ago, like Blackberry, they’re in need of a makeover.

That the Republican brand should be in transition as society progresses.

PR super agent Marvet Britto of the Britto Agency says they’re only thinking about how to stop a President they hate for whatever reason.

For that reason, and their inability to embrace the winds of change sweeping through our country,  there will never be another Republican President in our generation.  In our lifetime.

So, I say as the party dominated by aging white Americans and some very vocal bigots,  the Republican party no longer represents the changing demographics in this country.

And it’s hard for even members of their own party to believe that it’s the President’s fault that veterans can’t visit the World War 2 Memorial or that family members of war heroes aren’t receiving  death benefits because of the shutdown.

Not even their own party is buying it and the American people certainly aren’t buying it.

Republican party,  wake up before it is too late!

You’re going the way of the Edsel. The wrong vehicle at the wrong time or in this case, the wrong party at the wrong time.

Republicans, here’s the bottom line from those of us who are not watching from the forest.

You are  blinded by the Obama hate trees, fighting amongst yourselves, in a death spiral.

Google the term target fixation immediately!!!

Get on the same message. And stop drinking the hater-aid. It is leaving a bad taste in your mouths and the majority of America is recoiling from your bad breath.
