You are incapable of making any points. Pressing the caps lock on your keyboard seems to be one of your greatest strengths.
As we have seen in the last 6 years, there is nothing magical about Dems. If they can win playing the race card, so can the GOP.
If you can't see that the GOP is done unless their candidate is a minority, then your words amount to air. A "decent people" do not cast one vote. They cast millions of individual votes. I am not a Democrat. I am a JFK Democrat. He lowered taxes on the top 1% more than any other president in history. Not even Reagan could match that.
Bigger Moron: You are reality-phobic. Yes, in fact there ARE millions of individuals who vote based on race. My point wasn't that they shouldn't be doing that. Instead, my point is that they DO. That is the reality. Example, 5% of Blacks voted for white GOP candidates, but well over three times that percentage of Blacks showed support in the polls for a Black GOP candidate (Hermain Cain.) Call it "face", or call it "race" or call it "ethnicity", it doesn't matter to me. The reality is what it is. The GOP, like you, needs to get in touch with reality.
--- The GOP candidate must be Jindal --- Independent minorities aren't going to vote for a white face, like Walker. Jindal can draw 15% of the Black vote, at least 50% of the Hispanic vote and 20% of the Asian vote. Those percentages, along with 99% of the conservative white vote would be devastating to the Dems. I personally would vote for Walker too, but my personal opinions won't get Walker elected. The GOP has to deal with rapidly changing ethnic demographics ASAP. I think all 3 of those demographics are absolutely hungry to vote for someone off of the plantation. But that someone has to look somewhat similar to them, or at least similar to their complexion. That those groups would use that as a criterion doesn't bother me. I only want to find a way to reach them. The GOP is running on vapors and has no time left for their traditional methods. 95% of Blacks currently vote Democrat. When Hermain Cain was still a GOP contender a few years ago, polls showed him getting between 25 to 30% of the Black vote. Was his face white, or black? Three times more Black's trusted him than trusted a white GOP face stating the same policies. That fact doesn't bother me and I hold no animosity toward the Black community for it.The reality of how Blacks and other minorities vote, and why, simply is what it is. My only motivation regarding this issue is that the GOP adjust their strategies based on the reality. Obama was a nobody in 2008, with no executive experience, but the Dems forced his candidacy to work. Why couldn't the GOP do the same thing in 2016, but with a candidate (Jindal) who actually happens to have stellar experience?
Again with the numerals in your column titles. You have a following now, so you don't need the numerals trademark anymore. Your writing is the trademark now. You will get more readers if you stop with the numerals. I didn't bother to read this column because of it.
John, I'm glad to see that you have learned that you don't need to put numerals in the title of every column you write. I have read some of your stuff and like it. I will read more if you totally give up the numerals.

Waiting For Walker

I'm not worried about civics problems. I'm worried about more socialists occupying the Oval Office. Candidates with non-white faces is the only way that the GOP or any other conservative party will win elections. The Dems forced the Obama campaign to deliver, and in the end it delivered for them. Now conservative parties need to do the same thing---- force the campaign of a non-white candidate. It is silly to keep ignoring the rapidly changing ethnic demographics of the electorate.

There is very little history of senators or brain surgeons winning presidential elections. Governors have a big history of winning presidential elections.

What they should consider, and what we WANT them to consider, are two different things. You and the GOP need to deal with the reality of why some groups vote they way they do. The sooner the GOP figures that out the sooner they can win big.

95% of Blacks currently vote Democrat. There is nothing "wrong here". It is merely a fact. The reality of how Blacks and other minorities vote, and why, simply is what it is.
