Election Aftermath: Part 2

Captain Ed on GOP leadership questions.

John Hawkins on GOP branding.

Newt and Michael Steele both voice interest in heading the RNC. Newt may just bow to Steele which makes sense to me. Steele is a fresh face, positive, conservative, was effective as GOPAC head, and is one of the up-and-comers like Palin and Jindal. Newt would be best behind the scenes, formulating ideas and orchestrating a cohesive battle plan for 2010. More posts on Steele here and here.

CRM has three posts on the aftermath here, here and here.

And, finally, both PowerLine and RedState give some sage advice on how to deal with The Obamessiah administration.

PowerLine's summary (read the post for full explanations):
Pray...

Don't assume that Obama is always wrong...

Be loyal in your opposition...

Be patient in your opposition...

Be persistent in your opposition...

Be fair in your opposition...

Be skeptical in your opposition...

"Secede" from the mainstream media...

Support fledgling conservative institutions...

(12) Get On Living...


Because... The One may just be a one-term president.

Good points, all. The party of smaller government, strong defense and fiscal and social responsibility can find its way out of this forest by practicing all of the above and rereading its platform. Most of all, its leaders can rise above the short-sighted temptations of the illuminati by reading their Bibles and praying.
