According to a very slanted article by CNN’s political unit, which should be renamed to CNN’s liberally biased political unit, the Republican National Committee has issued a 100 page report (included below) which lays out in great detail why they lost election 2012 and why they expect to continue losing unless they bolster their ranks with more minorities and homosexuals – or at the very least begin catering hand and foot to those groups. As CNN’s liberally biased political unit put it:
[box] CNN: “The GOP is too old, too white, and too insular to win national contests. The Republican National Committee acknowledges its messaging problems, identifies structural setbacks to the primary calendar and spells out how to target specific demographic groups that voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in 2012.”[/box]
Speaking at an event notating the release of the report RNC Chariman Reince Priebus had this to say:
“The report notes the way we communicate our principles isn’t resonating widely enough. Focus groups described our party as ‘narrow minded,’ ‘out of touch,’ and ‘Stuffy old men. It all goes back to what our moms used to tell us: It’s not just what we say; it’s how we say it,” Priebus continued. “Our policies are sound, but I think that in many ways the way that we communicate can be a real problem. The promise of opportunity will be our message, and a spirit of optimism will infuse everything that we do. “
The report also indicates unsatisfactory results with the party’s primary process which has generated problems for Republicans – especially the months of debates which found candidates ripping one another to shreds in debate after debate, many times causing them backlash later, when facing an actual Democrat opponent.
But the report is nothing more than a continuation of RINO politicians who’re willing to sell out the once ironclad principals of the Republican party. They didn’t lose the election in 2012 because they aren’t cool like Obama – or because they didn’t appease enough minority groups – or because they are opposed to a sexuality which is a dead end for humanity. The exact opposite is true.
They lost because they’ve veered away from energizing their base of true conservatives – they’ve become wishy-washy on too many core concepts and it leaves true conservatives less than enthusiastic about cranking up, driving out, standing in line and casting votes for them.
The Republican party is not only missing the elephant in the room, they’re actually moving in the opposite direction attempting to solve their “crisis.” Instead of following sage advice such as “stick to your core beliefs” and actually giving conservatives a message which motivates them to action – they’re just selling out in hopes of scalping a few extra votes from hardline democrats and independents and unless they change course – it’s gonna destroy the GOP, which may be a good thing if they in fact do succumb to the politics of the weakest U.S. President that’s ever held office.
Republicans are in an all out panic and it’s unnecessary. Just as Barack Obama is offended anytime someone speaks ill of him or his policies, the “new republicans” such as John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Karl Rove as well as a host of others – seem to also feel apologetic anytime they’re chastised by leftist groups for being white, or old, or opposed to gay marriage, or opposed to tax increases. It’s the tax increase argument that really – truly tells the story. In what country, on what planet, in which universe do politicians have a tough time selling the idea of less taxation?
Wanna win again, RINO’s? It’s very simple: start being true conservatives again. Start pounding away at the political facade of the Democrat party once again. Only then will you see the base, which consists of the votes you needed to defeat Obama last November, return.
