Reince Priebus thinks the GOP has a marketing problem.

After watching Mitt Romney get beat like a rented mule in the last Presidential Election, GOP Party leader Reince Priebus has determined that the GOP has a marketing problem and that they need to do a better job of getting their message across to voters. 

Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus on Friday will lay out his plan for a “Republican renewal,” telling members of the party that the GOP must abandon the concept of battleground states and look to compete in “every state and every region” in the country, POLITICO’s Playbook has learned...

Priebus will outline a number of steps the GOP should take to expand the base and get competitive in a broader swath of states. Among his suggestions: train “candidates, volunteers and operatives” on basic subjects like fundraising and campaign strategy — but through a variety of high-tech methods, including Skype sessions and Google hangouts; give the “next generation of organizers access to the brightest experts,” take the initiative on leading in the “digital space” and focus on being “welcoming” and “inclusive” without forgetting GOP “principles.”
Old wisdom says that the first step on the road to recovery is admitting that you have a problem.  With this statement, Reince is doing the exact opposite of admitting the GOP has a problem with it's message of anti-science nuttery, climate denial, anti-woman misogyny, religious extremism, and economic policy ignorance.  Quite the opposite in fact, Reince is saying the biggest challenge facing the GOP is doing a better ob of conveying their policies and message to the masses.

My prediction is that if and when the GOP does manage to somehow get their message out to all the voters across the country and educate them all on the policies and principals that the GOP espouses, then the Republican party will fall even further into oblivion. If anything, the GOP's problem is not enough marketing, its all the free marketing that their political enemies are more than willing to do for them.
