It’s the sixth year of Barack Obama’s presidency, the job market is still sluggish, most Americans say they’re unhappy with the economy, and Obama’s approval ratings are down.

So what’s the Republican plan to turn it around?

The answer is, they don’t all think they need one and those who do can’t agree on a unified view. But some prominent Republicans are warning their compatriots that they need to get their act together — because just running against the Obama record isn’t going to be enough.

Especially if they want to be ready for 2016 … as in, see Romney, Mitt.

From all the outward signs, Republicans could do just fine in the midterms. GOP strategists say voters are so frustrated with the economy that they’re ready to give Republicans a chance, and could hand them the keys to the Senate as well as the House. The problems with the Obamacare rollout haven’t exactly helped Democrats, either.

But it’s one thing to run against the “Obama/Mark Pryor economy” — or the Obama/any-red-state-Democrat economy — and another to lay out the positive alternatives. Some Republicans and influential conservatives are warning the party that if they don’t lay out alternatives, they’ll miss a big opportunity.
