Dear Republican Party,
Since you weren't paying attention, again, let me point out that people will choose the open over the hidden every time.
If you give them the choice between an open Democrat or a democrat with an R label prefer to go with the truth in advertising.
That is why you lost in 2006. That is why Dole lost. That is why McCain lost. That is why Romney lost.
Moderates do not energize.
Moderates with clear records of doing things differently than they are promising don't either.
You need to start offering me something besides, "I'm not the other guy; vote for me!"
