    Demographic changes in America dictate that the GOP can't win the minority/young/female vote unless they run a minority candidate AND compete with the Democrats in offering all of them something. Which the republicans cannot do unless they abandon their position on lower taxes, less spending, and reducing debt/deficits. It's pretty amazing that the democrats have managed to secure those voters without really doing a damn thing to earn it, but they you are. The repubs will actually have to do something to get competitive, but how do they do that and still maintain some semblance of fiscal responsibility?

    I guess the only alternative is wait for the democrats to royally fuck up, worse than they already have the past 4 years, and ride a wave of voter dissatisfaction into office similar to what Obama did in 2008. One wonders though what has to happen to get the voters dissatisfied that much. If they aren't dissatisfied enough now, which they ain't, just how bad is it going to have to get?

    The GOP damned near gave us the Second Great Republican Depression 4 years ago. Do you really think that we believe that they are fiscally responsible? Two wars, and a reduction in taxes?

    When are you fellows going to stop talking out of both sides of your mouth? Fiscally, your people have done this nation more harm than any Democrat ever has.

    That, or the same people begin to realize that America just won't work as long as they permit the Left to divide us along lines of race, ethnicity and now - sex.

    "Running a minority candidate" has jack to do with it. Republicans seem incapable of understanding that, with Democrats, it's not about skin color, ethnicity or gender.

    If Obama was a white guy, he would not have been re-elected.

    If Obama was a white guy, he would never have been elected in the first place. An honest liberal would admit that.
