I recall after the last election….you know the one where Mitt got his pants beaten off…..the GOP and its chairman, Rancid Prius (sorry cannot remember his real name and too lazy to use Google) stated that the GOP was gonna take stock and try to reach out to those disenfranchised voters…you know like women, Latinos, working folk, etc……
An excellent idea and I for one was looking forward to some substance to their issues and not just “we hate Obama” rhetoric…..this was the perfect opportunity for them to be successful…….many Americans were getting weary of the Obama admin and their sluggish policy machine….the voters were there for them to reach out to and hopefully convert……but…….
So far NOTHING has changed…they are NOT reaching out to new voters……they remain with an aging white base….they allow the idiots of the party free and unhampered access to spout all sorts of insulting rhetoric and falsehoods…….and policies….where are the NEW ideas on policy prep?
At the winter meeting of the RNC the chairman made some amazing statements……
We’ve come a long way since we gathered in Charlotte and vowed to renew our party, to grow, and to win.
As you’ve seen these last few days, we’re making great progress. We’re meeting our goals. We’re ‘making it happen.’
On all these things, I could go into greater detail. But you’ve heard and seen most of the numbers by now. So I just want to underscore the big picture. What we’re doing together is unprecedented for the RNC, for any party committee. We already have more people in the field than we do in headquarters. That’s unheard of in an off year. In some cases, that’s unheard of in an election year.
And we’re accomplishing these things because we’re united.
There are also people who want to turn the healthy conversations we’re having into headlines. They want to make a family discussion look like division. But we’re not going to let that happen, either.
I think it’s a good thing that we can have honest discussions on policy. A robust party should take time to debate the right solutions, and the right tactics. But there shouldn’t be any question: We’re united on our principles…
…yes, our party has come up with multiple ways to protect Americans from the consequences of Obamacare. But does anyone doubt that we’re united in saying that America deserves better than the Unaffordable Care Act?
Enough! I could go one with his comments but why? His comments are those of a delusional prick. I have seen NOTHING new or anything that could be clled a success….with the exception of ACA (Obamacare for those haters) and that had NOTHING to do with GOP policy but rather a failed roll-out of the program…..very fortuitous for the GOP.
The RNC is already investing in a strong ground game for the 2014 elections, having already recruited more than 8,000 precinct captains. The committee has one of the largest, most diverse staffs it has ever had, officials said last week, and it has restructured its operations so they are data-driven. The committee is investing in all 50 states while eyeing some states where they could invest more substantially ahead of the 2016 election cycle.
But what good is a ground game if you have nothing to offer perspective voters?
The one area that has the GOP most concerned is the so-called “war on women”….but they have a plan…well sort of…….
The RNC is also considering a tactical defense against the Democrats’ “war on women” attack that in 2012 brought down candidates like Missouri’s GOP Senate candidate Todd Akin. The committee will consider a new resolution that states the RNC will not support the “strategy of silence” when it comes to Republican candidates and the issue of “life,” urging candidates to defend their positions and fight back.
Let me help them with this one issue….if you do not want it to appear as though there is a war on women then put a muzzle on the morons…..every time they open their mouths they feed that perception…..they can defend their position without using stupid statements to make their point….you know like “legitimate rape” or “biblical authority” or (pick one…they are not hard to find)…….as long as your candidates go off script the harder it is to reel they comments back…..just a suggestion……
I am a political philosopher and believe me when I say that I would love to see a new and improved GOP……… would make for a much better political stage….but so far all they have is….well NOTHING! They have the same mindless twaddle from mental midgets……the people with an intellect are move to the fringe and told that they are NO longer political pure….there can NEVER be a strong GOP as long as these types of thoughts are allowed to blossom and bear fruit…….it is just that simple.
