I agree with 90+% of what Michael Reagan says but the demographics are not the same as when his father was President. Obama won by courting Blacks, Hispanics, and young single women. Republicans cannot make inroads with young women as long as there are candidates like Akin and Mourdock saying blatantly stupid things. Republicans cannot make inroads with Hispanics as long as many if not most leaders in the party maintain such a rigid position on immigration. Republican success in the future requires three things: i) maintain the economic principles President Reagan practiced and Romney preached, ii) promote "peace through strength" that President Reagan so clearly demonstrated, and iii) increased tolerance and acceptance in other areas.

And now it seems that Puerto Rico is going for statehood. How many posters here have seen the ghettos of San Juan?

Wait until next year -- 2016, that is.

That’s what disappointed Republican spinners kept saying Tuesday night as they watched Mitt Romney’s hopes crash and burn in swing state after swing state.

How many times did I hear a Republican talk about how their party’s deep bench of future all-stars will return it to power in Washington in four years?

But all the Ryans, Rubios, Bushes, Haleys and Christies in America can’t put the GOP -- or the country -- back together again.

The GOP is a wreck -- and not just in California, where the party’s registration is now...
