Why do Republicans run from squirrels? Because they’re nuts… But if Republicans were to ask me for advice to fix their party, …. this is what I would tell them…..

As Republicans, they need to do three things to get back on track. Number one, they have got to stop defending the kind of spending and out-of-control spending that they would never tolerate on the other side. You know, when voters are saying that they trust Democrats more to cut their taxes [and] control spending, that tells everyone that something is wrong with the Republican Party. They’ve got to match their actions with their rhetoric.

Number two, they’ve got to stop defending the kinds of corruption they would rightfully criticize in the other party. The week before the election, their most senior senator got convicted on federal charges – and that’s only the latest example. Each time that happens it tells everyone that something is wrong with the Republican Party. Again, they’ve got to match their actions with their rhetoric.

Number three, they have got to be the party that offers real solutions to the problems that American voters, American families are worried about. They don’t need to abandon their conservative principles; they just can’t be the ‘party of no.’ Instead they need to offer real solutions on how to make health care more affordable, and on the economic challenges facing families, as well as on the international threats.

If they want my help, hopefully they can find someone Republican enough in Bridgeville or Senate District One of Wilmington, whose actions will prove the wisdom of these words…
