Chuck Todd: Why Do Republicans Have More Women and Hispanic Governors?
weeklystandard.com ^ | 8/31/12 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 08/31/2012 11:45:45 AM PDT by ColdOne

MSNBC host Chuck Todd asked the co-chair of the Democratic party's convention, L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, why there are more Republican women and Hispanic governors:

"Let me ask you though, this one question, why is it that the Republicans have elected more women governors and have two Hispanic governors and the Democrats don’t?," asked Todd. "Don’t have as many women governors and don’t have Hispanic governors, why do you think that is?"

What? Chuck finally noticed? Hey, Chuck, maybe it’s because the Republicans are “inclusive.” You finally picked up on that.

"It’s true, they may have more governors but we have a much broader field when you look at all of the elected officials."

"They's noes their place and it ain't com'n through the front door of the Governor's Mansion. The's need to stick with the back-door."

Because the Republicans nominated competent gubernatorial candidates that won. Some of them happen to be of various ethnic backgrounds. We don’t care what thier race is.

I’m going to say it’s because the Republicans hate women and Hispanics, so they elect them to high office in order to make them miserable.

Did I win?

Maybe it’s because Republicans will vote for an actual conservative, when they get the chance, irrespective of sex, ethnicity, race, or planet of origin.

Thomas Sowell uses the term “mascots” to describe how minorities are looked upon by the Leftists.

In my own experience I had an opportunity to work on some elections in Kansas City. They have a so-called non-partisan city election process. In working with Democrats it I always chuckled to see them keep Democrats who happened to be black away from certain choice opportunities. I made it interesting when I was supporting a democrat who happened to be black because of how he was alligned with my business interests as opposed to the other candidates, also Dems outside of that election.

It was something I had some real fun with.

Best post!

Maybe the MSM is starting to recognize the truth, i.e., that WE aren’t the racists in the whole scheme of things.

If a liberal reads this they will take it as “We don’t care what their race is.” Meaning as “Republicans don’t care for people of race.....”

Because conservatives are rational and rational people don’t care about ethnicity or gender when it comes to elective office. We care about ideas, policies, and character

“Chuck Todd: Why Do Republicans Have More Women and Hispanic Governors?”

That’s easy... because of the Republican’s “war on women”.

To address the question, I believe it is because Republicans don’t care about COLOR, they care about CHARACTER.

What was the reponse?

To paraphrase, the answer was that Democrats mostly put Women, Hispanics, and Blacks in LOWER LEVER POSITIONS.

... where they can be easily controlled and manipulated and USED as pawns to achieve the goals of the Socialists.

And as long as Dems keep pushing abortion (especially for minorities who, they pretend to be helping to plan their pregnancies) we will see fewer and fewer Democrat minorities in high offices. Soon the Dems will abort themselves out.

Obviously the conservative members of minority groups have figured this out. They have seen the statistics, and know that the Republicans aren't the ones pushing them to kill their unborn children along with their hopes for equal representation and opportunity through upcoming generations.

Well .. making a threat against a presidential candidate is just about as deranged as making the same threat against the president or his family.

Therefore, I believe Mr. Biggs had a little visit from the Secret Service and he was told to remove the tweets and to refrain from same.

I’m trying to remember who owns Nickelodeon .. that Network may have been the ones who received the visit.

On the other hand .. maybe those of us who know how to pray .. Hmmmm ..?? Mr. Biggs seems to be in desperate need of some intervention.
