He does understand the game, in fact, much better than anyone here. He is right that we cant win with the just the white male vote. For that, we crucify him here, for saying these things that we dont want to hear. Yet he won 2 elections. The hispanic vote needs to be courted, it is a guaranteed way to stop the leftists cold, but people dont want to hear that.
Out of curiousity, how could any of our possible candidates who entered the primaries change the demographic lock the democrats enjoy? Anyone?
Even Herman Cain was going to be defined as a rich guy. The democrats have played every card of division in the deck and amazingly they have succeeded and minority voters voted dem.
We can come up with every logical reason in the world to vote for us because it will make their lives better and it is simply erased by the polarization of race.
I don’t like the GOPe and I have said for years they need to reach out to the emerging demographics. Unfortunately, the desires of these demographics are often in direct opposition of conservatism.
You are wrong. You can line up a D and a R and have them both promise Amnesty and the Latinos will pick the D every time. Romney proved it tonight. Mclame proved it in 08. Liberals will never be persuaded to vote for a non D light version of the D candidate. Why should they?
The real issue is takers and makers, who gets what and who foots the bill. The “right” side of that equation has been fundamentally transformed by the Dem’s and trying to be more like them to get power is a phyrric victory at best.
