Rubio opens GOP soul searching
Politico, by Manu Raju

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 11/7/2012 2:30:56 AM

In the wake of Mitt Romney's defeat, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio implored Republicans to broaden their tent and improve their outreach to minority groups. "In the next Congress, I am committed to working on upward mobility policies that will ensure people who work hard and play by the rules can rise above the circumstances of their birth and leave their children better off," Rubio said in a statement. "The conservative movement should have particular appeal to people in minority and immigrant communities who are trying to make it, and Republicans need to work harder than ever to communicate

Comments:
Romney screwed-up the moment he decided not to choose Rubio as his running mate. Paul Ryan is a good conservative, but wer'e dealing with identity politics now. I hate to say it, but our next presidential nominee better be a strong conservative minority candidate or a woman.

"In the wake of Mitt Romney's defeat, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio implored Republicans to broaden their tent and improve their outreach to minority groups."

Rubio, I like you, but seriously, shut the he** up for a while. "Minority groups" are half the trouble, the blacks voting on skin color, the hispanics voting democrat because they believe they will be easier on illegals. Both groups have large needs for handouts and are poor. Republicans should "reach out to them" by what, giving them more freebies?

Go away Rubio, you're starting to sound like a RINO.

Sorry but all this soul searching is for the birds. I refuse to give in to the entitlement mindset. The Country just sealed it's fate to being a country lke Greece and other hell holes where there are citizens who vote for what the government can give them. Where every perversion is just a lifestyle choice. Enough with giving in.

If a minority GOP candidate still can't clearly articulate and win over those attracted to free stuff, we still won't win over minorities. It won't matter WHAT color they are in that case and it will come across as phony. Our problem, folks, is the culture has gone left.

Rubio is right, and it's attitudes like #2 and #3 that will seal our doom if we do not take heed. Demographic charts and graphs do not lie. It is no coincidence that Bush worked much harder than McCain or Romney to connect with Latinos, Bush got a much higher % of their votes, and Bush won two terms as President. Now here we are. Did anyone else notice, the crowd at Romney's concession speech is nearly ALL white people? I mean very close to 100% white. This is what cannot stay unchanged if we want victory in the America of 2016, 2020, 2024.

Rubio should definitely be on the VP short list in 2016. And we need to do a lot more outreach to hard-working Americans of Asian, Indian, Latino descent. There are plenty of them and it's incredibly stupid to write off entire ethnic groups as "liberal" or, worse, view them as handout-addicted parasites when lots of them do work hard and pay taxes.

Yeah, you Republicans have a good time with that ''bigger tent'' thing.

I used to be a Republican. But then one sad and heartbreaking November day, we couldn't beat the worst president in the history of this nation.

The formerly worst president, Jimmuh Carter, lost 49 states when he ran for re-election. NØbama should have lost all 57 states.

I just don't have anything left. I'm just going to put my money and guns out on the front yard, since the government is going to take them away anyway. I guess I can just leave my heart out there too, since it was ripped out of my chest yesterday.

I think I'm going to like welfare.

Oh I get it number 5.

We need to give more ENTITLEMENTS. That's it. That's the ticket.

Are you sure you are not supposed to be on the Huntington Post?

Dazzle us with your intellect on specifics. How should we "reach out"?

* Free college for illegals
* Drivers licenses for illegals
* More free housing and welfare for "black communities"
* More reach out meetings with "Jay-Z"
* How about our elected representatives chime in on local crime issues, when a "minority" is "racially violated" by a white guy
* How about special access to jobs if you are non-white
* No interest loans, if you are non-white


Tell us friend, which of the above kind of "reaching out" do we do, rather than take the conservative route of helping ALL Americans?

Or are you saying that won't work, might as well pander and just be like liberals?

We have become a vapid, unserious country. We may need to attract more minorities, but only by actually educating them. And that will mean taking our education system back. How can we do that if we don't have the reins of power?

Lawfare comes to mind.

I'm with #2. This election was about black people voting for skin pigment. There can be no outreach to racists. There is no problem with the GOP with the exception of Mitch MCConnell and Reinse Priebus. And Romney's pick for VP was completely irrelevant. Had the election been held the day before Sandy arrived and Christie fell in love, Romney would have won (according to polling). Please can the party return to serious people as leaders and not the Sean Hannitys and Limbaughs who lie to us about polls and reality. It's not helpful. The polls weren't scued, the leaders were. And no more lame candidates like Akin, Murdock, and that goofy guy from OH.

If the Republican candidate cannot beat a socialist marxist, then what is the poNthing to Goodwill, had to move back home, have not had a job in almost two years and seen the effects of Obamacare. No bigger tent. Either stand for something or stand for nothing. Unfortunately, I don't think we can save our country.

Now the progressives will attempt to convince GOP leadership to kill the Tea Party. NO.

We have been defined by the progressives as the 1%, homophobic racists. The name Republican is now dirty.

We need a simple platform to educate folks what we really are... The Party of Lincoln.... and make our platform a mirror of the constitution & bill of rights... just re-written so a 5 year old can understand them... short bullet points... including Judao/Christian values.

The Schmidts are going to help progressives divide & conquer us.

Does he mean by outreaching, to give them things so they like us? I have never seen anyone in the Republican party mistreat or keep a minority out of the party (Herman Cain, Alan West, Condi Rice). It seems to me it is a personal choice and they choose to believe false promises and lies voiced by the left. I am sick of political correctness compelled to hire or appoint minorities even when they are incompetent.

As to, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, what is the problem with them. They do not hold any elective office nor are they paid to represent any party. They have radio shows and express their opinions. They cannot raise my taxes, seize my property, take my 401K or social security or force unwanted National health care on me. One can choose to listen or NOT listen to them. What they say or might say does not influence my life.

Nominating even a 100% Latino ticket would not bring Republicans half the Latino vote, for the same reason Clarence Thomas' placement on the Supreme Court did not move any black voters.

Democrats and their media simply redefine them as idiots, sellouts, or monsters.

Rubio said we have to EDUCATE Latinos on HOW conservative policies effect their lives and their children's futures.

That has to be our strategy with the entire electorate--not in election years, but more so in between.

Ask yourself, why do you NOT believe what the MSM tells you? Because you KNOW better. The only way to minimize the effects of liberal media bias, liberal educators, and liberal hollywood is to pre-emptively inoculate voters against the liberal message. It's not hard to ignore something once you know it's a lie.

The problem with Rush on polling is he's a rational, logical thinker, analyzing and predicting what an increasingly post-modern voting block will do with facts and reality.

Rush has held to Reagan's optimistic belief in the basic fairness and wisdom of the American public. I expect on his show tomorrow we will hear that final pillar crumble under the weight of evidence.

I heard that in exit polling 40% described themselves as "moderates." That's 40% of voters either ignorant of the ideological choices before them, or refusing to acknowledge them.

If it's possible at this point to save this country, we're going to have to educate that 40% down to 15% before a conservative candidate can win a national election.

No. "Outreach" is not the answer to this mess. The first step is facing the fact that American culture is in serious, serious, decline. A decline actively producing an increasing majority of citizen-idiots, proud of their ignorance, prejudice, and refusal to think. You cannot "outreach" when there is no functional mind to reach to. Public schools? The corrupt liars of the media? The laziness affluence may encourage? Affirmative action? Where blame is placed doesn't matter at this point. America is becoming dumber - there's no other way to read this horrific election result.

I had a gut feeling all along this was going to happen. Obamasimply had too many big money backers for him to lose.Those same backers are going to loot the hell out of the treasury now,creating a left wing ruling class oligarchy.

Even though it disgusted all of us,Obama was a very shrewd operator though the last 4 years,spending trilions on tthe dependency vote.Romney tried to win on civility and common sense and those are a thing of the past now,with the spoiled brat counterculture.

It doesn't matter how close the election was or whether Obama has a mandate,he doesn't need one because there's no metric that can stop him from what he doing.The House is irrelevant as are the gutless courts.If you try to impeach Obama,you're going to look like sore losers.

It's tough to win with all white votes when we have virtual open borders with minorities flooding in here.

What does that mean? What is a bigger tent? Become more socialist? Shread the U.S. constitution? What good is a "Republican victory" if it means a slow march to socialism rather than a sprint?

Does this election not show us that the U.S. republic is dead? Let's not pretend anything else.

Republican party has a big tent but the Left has so successfully demonized the GOP and brainwashed the easily led to fear and palpable hatred for the Right that no amount of words will change them. They have divided and conquered. Today I don't want to hear blame, excuses and whining about Romney and Republicans.. Just a little rest and quiet to re-group from this disappointment and then come out fighting.

When the GOP figures out how to influence through all the media then we will have a chance. It has certainly worked out for the left. Their only message was/is that we are mean , greedy and full of hate. The Gimme Society has bought into the Lefts definition of the Right hook, line and sinker. How do you fight ignorance? Through the parts of the media they inhabit is a start.

There was one talking point that bothered me ..the constant use of "Creating all this debt for our kids and grandchildren to pay" That didn't mean anything to the this group of 30 somethings who use abortion as birth control and who only think about the next sex act wherever..the next puff off a joint... the next drink they have while watching Andy the gay blade on Bravo.. the next American Idol or the raunchy black rapper who gets his jollies grabbing his crotch. or the next rerun of Sarah Jessica Parker looking for Sex in the City...
I have no answer for this except to fall on our knees and beg God to forgive us and to help us get rid of this Godless Gov. that the evildoers have created.. We need God back in the schools..we need teachers who really do care about the kids they are teaching and not just their next union meeting..we need parents who parent..
We are in for a bad time in the next 4 years.. the only thing that might make me feel a little better is to see the welfare checks and Planned parenthood run out of our money.. Then lets see how the moochers live.
God deliver us from the evil that has fallen on this wonderful country..Bless us again..

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare?

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial.

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
