10 essential steps necessary to become a viable GOP candidate for POTUS:
1) Claim that God spoke to you and encouraged you to run for office.
2) Publicly declare that Obama is a socialist and question his loyalty to the United States.
3) Defend the right of corporations to maximize profits unfettered by environmental and business regulation­s or workers rights, and insist that corporate taxes be slashed or eliminated­.
4) Imply that all unemployed and otherwise downtrodden Americans are shiftless, lazy parasites on society.
5) Insist that the top 1% wealthiest Americans are overtaxed and that economically impoverish­ed folks are undertaxed.
6) “Obamacare is socialism!­”
7) Vow to eliminate Social Security and Medicare.
8) Denigrate gays, Muslims, and non-English speaking immigrants­.
9) Tea party protestors are patriots, Occupy protestors are anti-American thugs, bums, and hoodlums.
10) Embrace the philosophy of political contrarian­ism — if Obama is for “it”, then you must be against “it”, no matter what “it” happens to be.

Of course, becoming a candidate that can attract a right wing following is easy. Winning over moderates and independents without losing favor with tea party extremists — not so easy.

Congressional Republicans insist that they want to compromise on ways to reduce the federal debt and other key issues.

Unfortunately, the Republican concept of compromise — a key component of any meaningful negotiation — is for the opposition to discard their own beliefs and completely embrace the conservative point of view.

In short, their notion of negotiation involves capitulation by the opposition­.

The GOP made a huge gamble by embracing the often naive, frequently irrational, usually hyperbolic rhetoric of the tea party movement. The party leadership stands at a political precipice, contemplating whether to back away slowly, oblivious of the mindless tea party stampede heading straight toward them that will send the entire party over the cliff.
