If demographics is destiny, the Republican Party has a rendezvous with irrelevance — unless its policies change. This is the message some Republican leaders have been sending in the closing weeks of the presidential campaign. “The demographics race we’re losing badly,” Senator Lindsey Graham recently told the Washington Post with characteristic bluntness. “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” The numbers tell the tale. Minorities have accounted for 85 percent of the country’s population growth over the past decade, according to the US Census Bureau. A record 24 million Hispanics
Comments: The GOP's Dishonest Press problem There fixed the headline.
If Lindsay Graham made that comment about angry white guys, he is a big part of the problem. The solution is to convince the hard working and family oriented citizens of all races that rampant socialism is not in their best interest.
Lindsey Graham says? You HAVE to be joking! Lindsey Graham and his undercover boss, John McCain, are two of the biggest offenders of mealy-mouthism. They are masters of Political Correctness, and that PC includes treating black people with a reverence similar to that given the Pope. Not daring to be an 'angry white guy' even cost McCain the presidency, placing the evil one in our Oval Office.
Back to rehab with you , Lindsey Lograham. This guy, like Biden, is a perfect example of why more and more people are advocating for term limits. He (like Mcain) spends three years on call as David Gregory's GOP stooge and the fourth year fooling SC voters into believing that he'd a conservative.
Just saw a poll of Hispanic voters in Florida. Only 44% plan to vote for Obama. Doesn't look like they plan to rendezvous with Socialism after all. However, I am worried about Allen West winning his race for re-election. If we had even 6 black congressmen (or women), the black vote would not be such a lock any more for the Dems.
Lindsay Graham is not a "top Republican" as so many in the media like to call him. He might get some sound bytes, but he's one of those folks you have to "work around" and the newer class of GOPer is doing just that.
The GOP has a Doofus RINO Problem. Exhibit A: Lindsey Graham.
Unlike the black population (sad, but true), the GOP can definitely win a huge share, and possibly eventually a majority of the Hispanic population. They share many of America's traditional values: nuclear family, Christian beliefs, hard work, etc. Those of us who live among large Hispanic populations know and come to respect such families. In time, they too will vote with us.
Let's say for one minute, the writer is correct in what was predicted. The GOP withers away due to it's unwillingness to compromise it's basic principles of conservatism and tradition. It doesn't take someone who spent three years in the third grade to see just what would happen to this nation were that to happen. All one has to do is witness the travails of Kalifornia. That will be the future for every state that remians in the Union.
My thanks to the many Ldotters who beat me to it, including OP. I had to jump on this one, because it is ONLY the lying media, the lying professors in academia, and the lying Hollywood elite who are the cause of minorities continually voting against their own self-interests.
Conservatism is their salvation. Cultural renewal is their rescue. Returning to the true God is the only way forward to peace, prosperity, justice, genuine brotherhood.
There is no such thing as Compassionate Liberalism or Compassionate Progressivism or Compassionate Marxism.
The Lindsey Grahams and John McCains have the problem, they live in the past, they think they are in control of the GOP, and they fail to recognize the grass roots efforts and sensibilities of the TEA party members who are filling the lower ranks of the GOP, and starting to work our way up.
They think they can pat us on the head and say, "there there, don't worry your pretty little head about the big boy things" and we will just tuck our tails between our legs and go lay in a corner and keep our mouths shut.
Well, it is rapidly becoming apparent that we are beginning to outnumber them, and if they don't get with the program, we might just leave them behind.
FTA " Minorities have accounted for 85 percent of the country’s population growth over the past decade, according to the US Census Bureau."
Almost all of whom are immigrants or their children. So what does the GOP leadership do when in power? Why, open borders of course: effectively a blind eye to illegal immigration. And more and more legal immigration. And more and more compassionate welfare programs for immigrants.
Whatever communications problems the conservatives in the GOP may have had in the past are now being corrected through the facts, stats and America's lessons learned from history found readily available on conservative talk radio, the internet & FOX! ...And never misunderestimate the common sense and passion for freedom of the American people! Enough of us still do know & cherish the principles of liberty are uniquely secured in our U.S. Constitution and we intend to keep it that way with our votes!
But the dem's problem is apparently insurmountable because their tactics and policies conflict with both the Constitution AND the sensibilities of the American people. Lefty/lib radical activist statist clones & drones of liberalism have taken over that party and they are marching to a different drummer! The 0bama's even have the audacity to brag about getting their radical personal agenda, ''around,'' the U.S. Congress!?!!! Has such Presidential disrespect for the elected representatives of the American voters ever been exhibited before? Outrageous!
A cancer patient, who publicly discussed the cancellation of his insurance under ObamaCare, now says he has been informed by the Internal Revenue Service that he is going to be audited. Bill Elliot appeared on Fox News on November 7th to discuss the cancellation of his insurance. He claims he was told that his cancer was considered “beyond the catastrophic previous condition” and his plan was being canceled because of ObamaCare regulations. Elliot, who has Stage 4 cancer, informed viewers he wasn’t going to pay the $1,500 a month for the new plan being offered, preferring not to burden his
A pioneering study has shown for the first time that the brains of men and women are wired up differently which could explain some of the stereotypical differences in male and female behaviour, scientists have said. Researchers found that many of the connections in a typical male brain run between the front and the back of the same side of the brain, whereas in women the connections are more likely to run from side to side between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This difference in the way the nerve connections in the brain are “hardwired” occurs during
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
Shortly before receiving the medal of freedom from President Obama, Oprah Winfrey gave an interview to the BBC in which she seemed to chalk up much of the opposition to the president to racism: "I think there's a level of disrespect for the office that occurs ... because he's African American," she said. Her claim reminded me of the times when, as a child of the '70s, my father would ask an odd question about my friends, "What is he?" "Huh?" I'd ask. "You know, what is he — Italian? German? Lebanese? What is he?" my father replied. Colorblind eyes - I had no idea what my friends' ethnic origins were.
While just eight days of legislative business remain before lawmakers are expected to leave Washington for the winter holidays, House Speaker John Boehner maintained that immigration reform still has a spot in his majority’s agenda next year, but he does not intend to move on comprehensive legislation. (Snip)“Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters during a news conference at the Capitol Thursday. “I believe that Congress needs to deal with this issue. Our committees are continuing to do their work. There are a lot of private conversations that are underway to try to figure out, how do
Phoebe Connolly, who was punched in the face and laughed at by a group of teenagers playing the random and sometimes fatal “Knockout” game in my own obscenely terrible neighborhood of Columbia Heights in Washington, D.C., appeared with Greta (snip)“I ultimately, I’ve moved past it and I really have no hard feelings about what has happened. And I just see it as another reason why we need to better support our youth with activities and youth programs, which is actually what I do for work, and it’s great to see teenagers do incredible things when they’re supported and empowered,” “
WASHINGTON — Many doctors are disturbed that they’ll be paid less – often a lot less – to care for the millions of patients who are projected to buy coverage through the health law’s new insurance marketplaces. Some have complained to medical associations – including those in Texas, California, Georgia, Connecticut and New York – saying the discounted rates could lead to a two-tiered system in which fewer doctors participate, perhaps making it harder for consumers to get the care they need. “As it is, there is a shortage of primary care physicians in the country, and they don’t have
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
