It's a joke to think the Republican Party is in the midst of a "RE-birth." Sure, they have lost their way, as Jeb Bush re-iterated March 4 on the Today Show. No kidding, for about 35 years and the last moderate, Gerald Ford. Jeb Bush is in no way a moderate, by the way. Wolf in sheep's clothing.
RE-branding, RE-tooling (tool pun intended), RE-establishing, RE-working, RE-loading (reloading pun defintiely intended), is only meant for one reason: RE-emerging to take back power, prestige, status--whatever the establishment country clubbers are clamoring for at the moment. Don't fall for it.
As a recoverning republican, their scheme is older than the profession they usually solicit (talking to you David Vitter); manipulation of the masses and the stupid Americans they call the American people.
Do not fall for the scheme that they are all of a sudden empathetic or somehow finally embracing moderation, toleration and compromise. They aren't and you shouldn't.
With the same schisters in charge as has been the case for decades, don't look for a RE-making. Rather a re-rolling; rolling those "so-called" American people that they will gladly throw under the bus (talking to you laborers, service workers and those of us other "47 percent."
Also, in a related development, Mitt Romney has begun to RE-raise his ugly head. These folks will never know, NO for an answer. Get used to it. That's the way it rolls and rides: the masses to another victory down the road (2014).
Look for more articles on this and other topics periodically.
