As a term of praise for having won the Civil War and having kept the nation together, the Republicans were dubbed the Grand Old Party or GOP. In their century-and-a-half of history, they elected more presidents than any other party. After losing the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election, eking out a tough win in 2004, and losing in 2008 and particularly in 2012 to an incumbent on whose watch a listless economy couldn’t push unemployment much below 8 percent, the attitude of the Republican Party turned sour and negative. GOP might as well had stood for Grumpy Old Party. But all is not lost. In Grumpy Old Party, author Constantinos Scaros identifies 20 tips that will help the party move beyond recent losses, reclaim their respectability, and win. “Instead of spending all that money on political advisors, every Republican should read this book instead!” - Tricia Erickson, author of Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters?
