The recent failure of the GOP health care bill sold by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan highlights the undeniable fact that the GOP leadership is an abject failure.
In fact, the GOP has no leadership, no direction, a President that is shot down at every stroke of the pen and ridiculed 24/7.
What then is the future of the GOP? Should there even be a GOP? Is everyone comfortable with a one party system?
You guys need to take time to analyze yourselves. Where the GOP is now didn't just happen overnight. Conservatives need to analyze why a foul-mouthed, short-tempered narcissist so utterly dominated Republican polls and primaries.
You also need to look at the fact that Republicans did a 180 spin from attacking Trump as making a mockery of the election,to lauding him and throwing all their support behind him. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruiz, Ben Carson, etc., etc., all had nothing but derisive things to say about him. They changed thier tune once it was obvious he'd be the GOP front-runner. Conservatives need to admit they've been insincere hypocrites regarding Trump: they hated him until they realized he could become president.
You also need to reflect on why there have been so few Republican pundits criticizing Trump and the GOP. Their was no outrage from conservatives when Republicans voted to remove the Office of Congressional Ethics, or barely (if any) complaints about all the embarrassing, imbecilic things Trump has said (that would've would thrown fits over Obama doing). Conservative (especially on this site) weren't calling Trump out for his monumental stupidity, because it would've meant criticizing your own side.
These are things you need to reflect on. Focus on *how* you got here, not just the current situation of the GOP being a failure.. Work to eliminate the wrong-doing that lead you to this point; don't simply concoct plans to continue your wrongdoing in ways you can get away with.
