Two hundred and twenty-four years of white voter dominance of presidential elections officially ended with Mitt Romney´s loss last month, and the GOP has such a bad brand among Hispanics that victory in 2016 and beyond will be a slog, according to a long-awaited Republican analysis. "Republicans have run out of persuadable white voters," said the study from GOP polling group Resurgent Republic. "Mitt Romney won a landslide among white voters, defeating Barack Obama by 59 to 39 percent. In the process he won every large segment of white voters, often by double-digit margins: white men,
Comments: Can Republicans get anything right?? I would say it´s not the white voter problem, it´s the people who want their "free" stuff that changed this election and not enough people were excited about the candidate.
It´s obvious a new party is needed; how about one headed by Marco Rubio and Allen West? A bit heavily weighed towards Florida, but I think most white people trust them both (sad to even have to write that but that´s the new normal)and bringing some Hispanics and blacks under their umbrella they should do all right.
I guess it is a LOT easier to come up with these grand pronouncements instead of nothing ANYTHING to make sure only registered American citizens vote and then make sure that the votes are correctly counted. The inept, stupid, Republican leadership stands by while EVERY one of their poll watchers is ejected from EVERY Philadelphia polling place. Sure, they have no clue about how to campaign in Philadelphia since Rizzo, but to say or do NOTHING about that blatant election fraud shows how pathetic they are on the whole issue. PA was a swing state. Philly swings the swing state. You would hope they would have done more to anticipate the usual corruption.
All the DNC had to do was target a few crucial counties, come up with less than 200,000 votes and they win. A lot easier when your opponent can´t even get phone video of voters being bussed into those counties. Oh, and don´t do ANYTHING about tabulation of votes by a Spanish company??? Partially owned by Soros! If banks used the security we do for voting, YOU wouldn´t have a dime left in your accounts.
If this what the Party really thinks, then the nomenclature the Stupid Party fits like a glove. It is the mentality expressed by this ´analysis´ that is the basic cause of the route suffered at the national level. Conservative ideology, principles are fully at work and thriving at state level. How many people are migrating from Kalifornia to Texas instead of the other way around? The difference between Red and Blue state quality of life is going to be stark and non-ignorable in the coming years. You have to be dumb as brick not to be able to take any advantage of that.
How can the people of a nation vote responsibly when half of them have been bought and paid for by the DEMOCRAT PARTY!!?? Have had their minds corrupted and controlled by our liberal academia and a liberal media!!??
What this administration is doing is treasonous. The hate filled propaganda spewed by this administration and the media is nothing short of what Hitler did to the Jews before he kill 6+ million of them. This time, it’s not Jews, it’s Christian Conservatives.
If you are a Christian, have morals and character, understand the sanctity of life, marriage, family, liberty and God, you are in their cross-hairs. YOU are the problem and in time YOU will be eliminated or neutralized.
The fiscal cliff is the beginning of the few possessing all the wealth and power while the rest of us scratch for ways to feed our families.
America as we knew it, is no more, thanks to a nation full of dumb asses who have been tricked into giving all their liberty and freedom to the Marxists. We are being destroyed from within.
The advancement of our civilization for the past 2,000 years has been driven by the Euro-descended white races. If white voter rule (majority) is over here (we know it´s nearly over in most of Europe), then the advancement of civilization is over. From here onward, it seems likely that mankind will slip back into third-world tribalism, conflict, superstition, poverty and hopeless despair, ruled by despots who care only about their own power and wealth.
#5, How about Jim Demint, Allen West and Sarah Palin? The new party can´t let spineless git-a-longs into positions of influence. It´s not over people - in case you´ve all forgotten what this Republic´s founders said, the progression is soap box, ballot box, cartridge box. We´re still at the trying to make the ballot box work stage, and haven´t even exhausted the vote fraud corrections, let alone moved to the cartridge box stage - unless you don´t think the constitution is worth defending or never took an oath to defend it against domestic enemies, in addition to our foreign enemies?
72.4 % of the US Population is White... just like the democrats are engaging in class warfare... some in the Republican party are attributing the loss to race. Obama would neverget relected if a significant portion of the white population didn´t vote for him. This is not about race..folks.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
