But this is the stupid party were talking about, so I wont hold my breath.
In the wake of the disastrous 2012 election results, there has been a lot of discussion on the right regarding the GOPs apparent message problem. Much of the conversations has focused on immigration issues as a way to bring in new voters. Recently, Charles Krauthammer wrote:
ve always been of the enforcement first school, with the subsequent promise of legalization. I still think its the better policy. But many Hispanics fear that there will be nothing beyond enforcement. So, promise amnesty right up front. Secure the border with guaranteed legalization to follow on the day the four border-state governors affirm that illegal immigration has slowed to a trickle.
Imagine Marco Rubio advancing such a policy on the road to 2016. It would transform the landscape. Hed win the Hispanic vote. Yes, win it. A problem fixable with a single policy initiative is not structural. It is solvable.
Its going to take much more than that to solve the current issues the GOP has with voters. You cant pander to one racial demographic and think that will solve all of your problems. The predicament that they find themselves in goes much deeper than a single issue, and its based primarily on trust. According to an election night survey released by Breitbart News, Judicial Watch, and Public Opinion Strategies:
Voters responses suggest that the American public agrees with conservative policiesbut does not trust the Republican Party to implement them....

She went commercial to recover financially from the pain her family suffered after all the Soros/Obama contrived lawsuits and that clouded her otherwise positive image.
The destruction of Sarah Palin was done not just by the Dems and their media allies. It was aided and abetted by Romney aides and the GOPe.
Absent a near miracle, the destruction is irreversible. I don’t think she could win a national election.
However, if she goes completely rogue and starts a third party, count me in. She may be the only national figure that could rally actual conservatives to the new party.
A viable 3rd party would most likely mean the GOPe AND the new party gets slaughtered in the first national election. So what? How would that be any different?
If the new party stayed the course it would eventually destroy the GOPe. That would be a very GOOD thing, and worth the price paid.
If the GOP were smart, every candidate should just change his name to Cruz or Diego or Santiago. The degree of mindless ethnic voting for the same ethnic group is sickening. I should know having lived in Hawaii a whole lot of years.
The democrats almost always win, but they are smart. They give each ethnic group a chance to run for governor.
For being just angry and racist white guys, we are the only ones who vote for candidates regardless of race.
And I’m really not joking about the Mexican surnames. Change your name. Drop the ‘R’ from campaign posters. Electability problem solved. But then the democrats will start running their candidates with hyphenated Spanish surnames.
Conservatives are fooling themselves about Palin.Then you're basically saying no conservative will ever again be elected to a national office.
As much as I like her, outside of social conservative circles, she is universally considered an idiot. No amount of arguing will change that unfortunate fact, either.
Because the MSM will demonize and vilify ANY movement conservative that tries to enter the political arena. Even ivy league educated, "moderate" Mitt Romney was portrayed (effectively) as an out-of-touch simpleton who's only success was predicated on being born rich....even though he donated his inheritance to charity and became a millionaire based on his own accomplishments.
Unless conservatives are willing to stand up to public ridicule, we will be doomed to a lesser-of-two-evils choice for President from now on.
Yes Senorita Palino please come run for El Presidente.
I came in to read an article about Sarah and was struck with one to overlook law breakers. Anyway, what states did Romney get that deutsch could not?
There is no possible way she can make a positive contribution to the GOP as an political entity...Sorry, that's just the facts..
Sure conservatives love her (I count myself among them) but vast portions of the American public being the clueless, dumbed down sheep that they are: think of her as the caricature the liberal media made of her...
She is forever linked with that POS McCain...as being part of the GOP establishment...
Yes, she can make contributions to rally the base, but as a public figure...she is toast
Sorry my phone misspelled Sarah
Most mainline party person in either party are selfish and our for how they can profit themselves.
Spoken like a true believer in the "Palin Cult of Personalty"
I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you for Hillary or Romney or Mc Cain? At least Sarah has a personality.
Because she's smarter than those who ask such questions. Look at what happened to the "approved" slate of candidates with the help of the RNC. Even then, when Romney became the last one standing, he was demonized by the conservatives to the point hat voter apathy on our side gave Obozo another term. She knows that, without an invite, she has to fight both sides. Without a groundswell clarion call, she's fighting a losing battle and further damaging the conservative cause. Only an idiot would take his/her family through such smears as would occur for no good reason.
She has to do it herself. They are vulnerable. It could be done. But not with their help.
Well as it turns out, Republicans did go for amnesty once, under President Reagan and allowed citizenship to millions, few questions asked. In return the border was to have been secured and such severe penalties for hiring illegals- it was all supposed to solve this issue once and for all.
Before the dust settled on that mess, the dims refused to enforce the border or the serious penalties for hiring illegals. Enforcement has been a joke for years. That is what brought us to where we are today...funny they don't trust us to do enforcement first, I don't trust them to do amnesty first.
Instead what they want is "amnesty first" with the subsequent promise of enforcement. Conservatives *know* that there will be nothing beyond amnesty. How do we know this? That is *EXACTLY* what happened the last time. And these oh-so smart self-anointed, self appointed pinheaded 'elites' (like Krauthammer) believe we are so stupid as to fall for *that* again?
