The 2012 Republican Curse?

Friday, June 26, 2009

What is happening in the GOP? John Ensign and Mark Sanford are the latest casualties of controversy in the Republican Party, admitting to having extramarital affairs. Both were thought to be 2012 presidential hopefuls, but now what's in store for the Republican party?

Joining The Takeaway are two prominent advisers and strategists in the Republican Party. Grover Norquist is the President of Americans for Tax Reform and the author of “Leave Us Alone – Getting the Government’s Hands off our Money, Our Guns, Our Lives.” And Ron Kaufman is a former White House Political Director under George H.W. Bush and also a close friend and adviser to Mitt Romney.
