    That's what they say.

    I don't know... what, exactly, is the motivation a black person has to vote GOP? Or a Hispanic or Asian? They've got the DEMOCRATS!

    And please, DO NOT give me any crap about how blacks are "actually pretty conservative," because not liking homosexuals does not quite equate with "conservative." Or crap about how Hispanics have "family values" when all social indices say otherwise.

    But, since that's what every single pundit's reaction to the Obama win was, I'm throwing it out for discussion.

    I agree... I don't think the repubs should do a single thing to diversify.

    How's it working out for ya?

    They need to go after hispanics. They have a much better chance at garnaring their votes than they do African Americans.

    If the republicans could get a hispanic jewish gay woman to run I think they would stand a chance, don't you WJ?

    What would you and your "buddies" be saying in those hotel room meetings then?

    The republicans are not going to attract the moderate voters of other than White Anglo Saxon Protestant persuasions who elected Obama until their leadership accepts voters who are not WASPs.

    If the republicans can find an eloquent leader who actually accepts non-christians and non-traditional families and he / she can pull their head out of the sandy ass of trickle-down economics, moderate voters will return. Until then, the democrats have a lock... Unless of course Obama does something really stupid like let Nancy Pelosi make a decision.

    obama won by a land slide, i cant see him losing in 2012, the republicans need to find a strong ticket in 2016 if they want to get things done.

    The Democrats provide them Government Entitlements. They have made minorities dependent on the government by making them believe that they actually care about them. They have them right where they want them. If they don't have to work for anything, why vote for a Republican?

    what a silly, racist thing to say.

    funny how it's white single women who are the most frequent users of the welfare system.
