    Analysis: GOP Policies Led to Fiscal Cliff Blowup
    By By CHARLES BABINGTON AP

    “…Such intransigence in the face of a narrowly divided U.S. electorate dismays Republicans who say compromise can be vital to a party's survival.

    The collapse of Boehner's tax effort ‘weakens the entire Republican Party,’ said Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, who is retiring after 18 years.

    ‘It's the continuing dumbing down of the Republican Party,’ he said, ‘and we are going to be seen more and more as a bunch of extremists that can't even get a majority of our own people to support policies that we're putting forward. If you're not a governing majority, you're not going to be a majority very long.’

    Republican consultant and writer Craig Shirley told The Washington Post: ‘The national GOP is now simply a collection of warring tribal factions’.”
