<p><em>New York Times </em>columnist and author Thomas Friedman has never passed up a chance to trash the Republican Party and so during Sunday&rsquo;s <em>Meet the Press</em>, he suggested that<strong> &ldquo;maybe this party needs to crash and burn and this version of the Republican Party needs to die&rdquo; </strong>in order for it to be reborn into a more competitive party against Democrats (translation: reshape their ideology).&nbsp;</p>

<p>Friedman&rsquo;s comments were prompted by <em>Meet the Press</em> moderator Chuck Todd wondering who would lead the Republican Party if the liberals dream scenario occurs on November 8 and the Democrats seize not only the White House but also the House and Senate.&nbsp;</p>
