Posted on 11/18/2012 11:43:41 AM PST by Windy City Conservative
We have to start electing people who look like their communities all the way from city council to county commissioners to county clerks all the way through the state and up into national politics, she [New Mexico governor Susana Martinez] told POLITICO and Yahoo News at the conclusion of the Republican Governors Association meeting here.

tell me again what Romney’s “gifts’ comment was
oh for crying out loud, we lost because we had massive corruption plain and simple.
Col West is the only one fighting this butyet again the elitist GOP fights our own like mad whilst ignoring the lefts corruption.
I’m sick of it. I’m also sick of the cowards on ourside which cannot come to terms with that this was a rigged election and keep making comments like this idiot
So the truth sets us back as a party?
He said that you cannot win against Santa Claus. Essentially what Rush said.
This is the GOP New Mexico governor who spoke at the GOP Convention. Now, she sounds like the head of La Raza. Are these minority GOP big wigs here to help the GOP or hurt it.
Its really sad to see the GOP slowly turning into the Democrat Lite Party..Democrats see people as races, I don’t. I vote for someone based on the content of their character NOT because of their race.
Romney’s comments about “gifts” was absolutely right, one of the few times in this campaign he had the guts to actually say the TRUTH and what does the GOP do, they turn on him. Does the GOP really think that pandering to people who want free stuff will help them win..I have news for them, those people who get freebies from the Govt will NEVER vote Republican..Dems already figured out how to get votes, just pay people off with freebies
romney is totally RIGHT about the GIFTS!!! Try BILLIONS of pigford cash for anyone except white guys!! Cellphones, housing, food stamps, disability payments, no borders, illegals now legals etc etc!!!!!
A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.
~~Alexander Fraser Tyler, “The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic”
Guess that's why the Founder's fought for a Republic!
Representatives should look like their communities?
I’m waiting for illegal aliens to start running for office...
The problem is, we are electing people that “look like America.” That is why we have politicians that hold the constitution in contempt, continually vote for larger government, seek to rule rather than govern, are corrupt as the, day is long, and are wholly unworthy of the offices they hold.
They have. Look to O-Hole.
Well, I guess the GOP has declared war on white males too, thanks GOP, white males are the new boogeymen, Martin Luther King Jr. wanted us to judge one another by the content of one’s character rather than the color of one’s skin, well, our leadership, like the Democrats, are a**holes and racists, thanks for nothing GOP!
It sounds like she wants the Republicans to compete in “gift” giving.
Yep. They're showing their true colors, as they come out in force.
And the 'sainted' Allen West got a pass for his YES vote on Pigford. The hypocrisy around here can astound me.
