During his appearance on the Univision program "Al Punto," Gutierrez claimed that the Republican Party's extremism was the reason for Mitt Romney's resounding defeat last week.

By the way, as to...
"Mitt Romney's resounding defeat."
Barack Obama beat Romney by 2.86%.
Obama - 62.615 million
Romney - 59.142 million
Was this the guy from Kellogg’s cereal? That Gutierrez?
“Republican extremism”. ROTFL! What a doofus. We’ve got commie ‘RATs running around all over Washington and this moron is worried about “Republican extremism”. You can’t fix stupid.
“Mitt Romney” and “extremism” are in the same sentence? Do I need to read any more of it? This is becoming gospel among the know-just-enough-to-be-really-ignorant left. Republicans lose because they keep on nominating far right candidates like Mitt Romney. Really, they think that.
Yes, Gutierrez was from Kellogg, their CEO, as I recall.
I’m pretty sure that pre-election I read a posting on FR of a poll that said 22% of voters would not vote for a Mormon. Has this been mentioned as a factor in Romney’ defeat?
What’s good for America has become “extreme” to a group of liberal minorities who were a majority in the last election.
Best I can tell the “extremism” consists of not making instant citizens out of 30 million illegals mostly from Mexico, most of whom are welfare, food stamp candidates.
Love of country, doing what’s right, even legal citizenship - have become extreme. And being white definitely is now “extreme”.
These people are in the process of destroying America.
I doubt 22% but there is no doubt in my mind Romney lost due to evangelicals who thought him a liberal and/or wouldn’t vote for a Mormon.
Of course the religious bigotry is despicable, but that only matters when it’s directed against a democrat.
“The Republican Party requires that a candidate has to say atrocious things in order to be nominated and go to the extreme right...”
“Hispanic Republicans, Anglo-Saxon Republicans, Asian Republicans [need to] form a new kind of coalition
[and we have to] demand once and for all a comprehensive immigration reform that permits persons who are undocumented to have a path to legalization...”
” Hispanic Republicans, Anglo-Saxon Republicans, Asian Republicans [need to] form a new kid of coalition [and we have to] demand once and for all a comprehensive immigration reform that permits persons who are undocumented to have a path to legalization . There are many Republicans who are tired of defending a party and then hear anti-immigrant rhetoric, xenophobic rhetoric, crazy rhetoric.”
Another Bush open borders, POS.
now Mitt Romney is an extremist?
Good point, golf lover.
Haven't seen a word on that since the election.
“Conservative” Mormons appearing on Hard Left blogs and TV programs condemning the religious intolerance of the Republican Party.
This guy should change his R to a D.
It has been mentioned, but there doesn’t seem to be any data to back it up. Doesn’t mean it wasn’t a factor, just that there’s not an exit poll that shows or suggests it as a significant factor. It was something I had to get past, so I imagine it was a factor for others.
We should be gald that GWB didn’t give the Alito seat to this Gutierrez.
Another “race before country” hispanic...
