"The Republican idea is a great idea, but we can't go and get stuck with just the right wing," Schwarzenegger said. "Let's let the party come all the way to the center. Let those people be heard as much as the right. Let it be the big tent we've talked about.
"Let's invade and let's cross over that (political) center," he said. "The issues that they're talking about? Let them be our issues, and let the party be known for that."
You think he is out there, right? John McCain don't:
As Democrats get closer to picking their party's nominee, McCain is getting advice on his image "rebranding" from some of the same GOP insiders who helped Schwarzenegger win re-election. They include senior campaign adviser Steve Schmidt and former Schwarzenegger communications director Adam Mendelsohn, partners in a GOP political consulting firm, Mercury LLC in Sacramento.
"The Republican brand may be in a bad position because of the Bush presidency, but people recognize that John McCain is not George Bush. ... John McCain has a long track record of being a nontraditional Republican - and so does Schwarzenegger," said Mendelsohn.
And then there is this:
It explains why, in the wake of losing a solid Republican seat in Mississippi in a special election last week, Republican leader Rep. John Boehner of Ohio sent out a memo outlining what he called a "new positive agenda" for the GOP - titled "The Change America Deserves."
The GOP's desire to change in this way has cost them control of Congress in 2006. It has cost them three seats in special elections. It will more then likely cost them the Presidency in 2008. As well as, probably give the Democrats a super-majority in both chambers of Congress.
Congratulations GOP leadership! You have "CHANGED" the party into one that can not compete. You have done everything within your power to destroy the basic fundamentals the party was built upon. Go ahead, continue to spend money like crazy. Keep throwing money and corn into the "Global Warming/ Climate Change" machine. Run right along and act like good little Democrats. Just don't be surprised when you hold only about 25% of Congress, and you are begging President Obama to show mercy upon you.
