GOP’s Dreakdown?


It is an interesting conversation. More so knowing that it is coming from a GOP discussion group.

As an observer of politics for more than 25-years and a commentator/pundit for the last five, I am now observing cracks in the armor of the Republican Party. This trend seems to be expanding since the formal start of the 2012 presidential primary season.
