If enough of these politicians were to man-up and turn around and confronted the bear like a certain ex-Speaker of the house now does

If you mean Gingrich, you're going to be deeply disappointed. Gingrich too is "running from the bear" as seen from his falling into the "inclusion" boilerplate b.s. too as seen here: http://thehill.com/video/campaign/266533-gingirch-says-hispanic-inclusion-necessary-for-gop. No one says Hispanics, blacks, women or anyone else can't be part of the GOP. I sure see a number of both in important governing posts and as speakers at the RNC. I don't see any sign on the door saying "Non-white males need not apply." This "inclusion" business is just code for becoming Democrats lite. I can see making the argument that conservatives need to do a better job at educational outreach to women and minorities to help them to understand how conservatism would best serve their needs and how liberalism has failed them. I would totally agree with that. But Gingrich by slobbering the media's inclusion line is just waving a white flag of surrender and conceeding a very dumb point the media is trying to make to weaken conservatism and the GOP. Why would anyone vote for the imitator when you could have the real thing?

I wasn’t speaking about Gingrich on this particular issue. I was more referencing his posture during the primaries where he wouldn’t accept the ways the media framed the debate. He unapologeticaly stood up to them and made arguments for what he believed despite their wish to paint him as an “extremist”. He gave cover for other candidates to stand up for conservatism and put forth conservative arguments.
