With Mitt Romney losing the election and more and more Republicans starting to seemingly cave in to Democrat demands, it’s been a rough year for Republicans, according to Tepper. He said that right now the Republican party has some terrible fractures in it, and it’s becoming more apparent as they are split on John Boehner’s “Plan B” on stopping us from going over the the fiscal cliff.

Romney lost, so we have fractures concerning the primary system. We have fractures concerning this budget deal. We have fractures concerning the platform. This is one of those things that the Democrats went through a couple of years ago, and it looks like we’re going through it now. I hope we figure it out sooner or later.

Tepper said that regionally speaking, The Republican party is very strong in the South. However, he feels that most of the national focus is on either the East or the West Coast, which are both predominately liberal.

Tepper also spoke with former County Commissioner candidate Ysidro Gutierrez. Both agreed that there is no compromise occurring between Republicans and Democrats, and that is Republicans do cave in and give President Obama the tax hikes he wants, he will just keep asking for more spending.
