Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., has a message for the Republican Party: stop angrily spouting off on television.

“To be honest with you, the Republican Party has been very angry lately,” he told the audience at a breakfast meeting organized by conservative groups Concerned Veterans for America and The Weekly Standard.

But while he acknowledged that the GOP had some good reasons for this anger, Kinzinger said it was harmful to the party’s ability to attract new voters.

“When you talk to the American people, and try to bring our vision, that [President Ronald] Reagan vision of a ‘shining city on a hill,’ but you’re doing it screaming on Fox News Channel all the time, screaming and yelling on all these cable news channels and being angry, you’re not drawing Americans,” he argued Thursday.
