George W Bush, Dick Cheney and Mitt Romney have all but disappeared from the face of the earth. Historically, don't the former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Presidential Candidates have an elder statesman role, subject matter expertise, patriotic duty, continuing civic responsibility, wisdom, legal insight, and perhaps love for this country that compels them toward further public service?
See the Democratic leadership from Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton and Chelsea are participating in public service at a very high level after leaving the White House.
The Republican Party has let the leadership default to John Boehner, and Ted Cruz and the Tea Party who forced the Government shutdown for 16 days while the whole country teeters on the cliff of debt default. Where are the adults in the Republican Party?
Cheney and Bush should have and show more interest in the economy, creating jobs, and foreign policy since they are responsible for the condition these were in when Obama took office. Sara Palin was far more active politically after losing the election than Romney, Bush and Cheney who were fitted for higher positions.
There is a leadership vacuum in the Republican Party. The solution is to fill the empty space with Democrats..
