Look at those three guys and watch the crowd at obamas victory speech.... we are no longer a majority traditionalist, white, European culture. The GOP needs to wrap itself around a more varying base....
I do not know anybody who voted for Obama or Bill Clinton for that matter.
“...The GOP needs to wrap itself around a more varying base...”
The problem with that is Conservatism is NOT about what government can do for people. It is about liberty.
Sorry, that base is taken. The Dems have locked them up with promises. Now that they are on the entitlement plantation, they cannot escape. The programs are set up that way - they punish people who try to wean themselves off.
Unless you are suggesting the Repubs try to out freebie the Dems. If so, how will that help? Entitlements will destroy this country, no matter who is giving them out.
Exactly right. I'll continue to listen to Rush, but we also need a younger, Latino (Spanish speaking) powerhouse conservative like Rush Limbaugh out there to change hearts and minds.
The GOP has been forever talking about "reaching out" more to minorities, young people and women, but when the heck will they ever do it? The time to do it was yesterday...
Also... I just asked this on another thread: WHY do Asian-Americans always seem to vote for democRATs? Logically they should be self-reliant Republicans. I don't get it...
