*Even though multiple scandals have rocked the Republican controlled Congress, GOP leaders have no plans to change anything if they continue to maintain the majority in the House.
...in numerous interviews with The Hill in September, most Republicans expressed comfort with the party’s electoral standing and said there would be little need for reassessments or rehabilitation if they retained control of the House in the 110th Congress....
“I don’t see the need for changes. We rise and fall with the president in this environment,” said Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee on the day before the Foley story broke. Davis said any significant loss would prompt an examination, but, “If we hold it together I don’t think you will see any change at all.”Doesn't that make you just want to go up to a Republican member of Congress and say, "Wake up!"
