224 years of white voter
rule is over: GOP analysis

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/14/2012 11:29:09 AM

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.

The analysis doesn´t explain the states. We have 30 Republican Governors and total control of either 28-29 state houses. Something doesn´t add up.

It has nothing to do with black or white voters. It is all about the voting patterns of those who produce and those who consume.

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.

And yes, of course… I’m a racist for saying so.

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?

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

The Obama administration is considering whether to require that television broadcasts of emergency announcements be provided in different languages. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday said it is reconsidering a rule that would provide Spanish broadcasts of emergency alerts and other important announcements. The rule was originally recommended in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, groups including the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) petitioned the FCC to require broadcasters to notify Spanish listeners in the event of an emergency. "MMTC filed its petition on Sept. 22, 2005, in response to its perceived deficiencies in distributing multilingual emergency information

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats´ success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn´t mince words. "I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform —

The unethical and illegal behavior of Democratic state senators in California, where Democrats have total control of the state legislature, is giving the state’s Democratic Party concerns that the GOP may use the misbehavior to regain power. Since the beginning of 2014, every month has featured a Democratic state senator either being arrested or convicted. The latest arrest came Wednesday, as Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco was arrested on federal corruption charges. The federal government charged Lee with conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms.

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in

The Republican Party´s rising Senate prospects are forcing House Republicans to craft a health care agenda that could function as a feasible legislative blueprint for overhauling Obamacare in January 2015. The Republican-controlled House has approved legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and reform aspects of the law several times, only to see the bills die in a Democratic-led Senate that is committed to preserving the law. That dynamic would change if Republicans win six Democratic-held seats and assume control of the Senate in November, as appears increasingly possible. (Snip) House Republicans are drafting a comprehensive Obamacare alternative. The agenda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings
