The GOP cannot be saved by one person. The fundamentals of the party must change if they are to continue to exist. The GOP is stuck in the past, and are not heeding the changes that have taken place globally. They cannot reach this new generation with the same old rhetoric they used in the past.
I think that the writing really is on the wall here folks. The GOP can't save itself, and no one is going to come along and save them either. They have been spanked in the past two presidential elections, and nothing seems to be improving for them as a result.
He can not save the party because the party is dying as it is. They alienate minorities and women and anyone who supports maintaining and not changing the social security, medicare and medicaid. These three are not the problem and cause no problems to the deficit. If the GOP had not lied about the reasons to invade Iraq and not fund the wars off the budget we would not be in this mess to begin with.
The GOP in general is in an identity crisis, and Priebus cannot fix it. Michael Steele couldn't fix it either. Typically, the RNC Chair needs to build organization, but when your brand of politics only appeals to a narrowing segment of the population, it's going to be very hard to attract interested people.
