In Some GOP Circles, Reform Is Already Underway

The GOP's biggest problem whether they wish to admit it or not is losing the white vote. The whites who either voted third party or didn't vote at all because of disgust with the GOP is why they lost the election, not because they didn't win the "hispanic vote".

Yep. Now they pass the sandy pork bill and talk of amnesty. The GOP has lost all credibility and they still don't care.

Pandering to the Hispanic vote will gain them nothing. Reagan did the same thing by jamming thru amnesty and the Pugs lost 7% of the Hispanic support in the next election.

Reagan on;y went for amnesty because immigration reform and border control was promised.

but the DemocRATs reneged.

as if no one could see that coming....
and now we're doing it AGAIN.

Weapons-Grade STUPID.

Right on, Ryan.

Romney was a bad candidate. He turned off instead of "turned out" the vote.

Excellent point, RyanM. A lot of conservatives didn't vote because well, Romney wasn't really a conservative in their minds. I thought too that Romney was really afraid to say anything negative about Obama. I would have called on him on his socialist tendencies. I don't know if would have won him an election, but now, after the inaugural, he could say I told you so.
The Republican National Committee chose to hold its recent winter meeting in Charlotte because North Carolina was a rare bright spot in last year's presidential election. Although it was the high-profile site of the Democratic National Convention, North Carolina became one of just two states won by Barack Obama in 2008 that went for Mitt Romney in 2012. (The other was Indiana.) So being in North Carolina made Republicans feel a little better.

But not much. The 168 members of the RNC grappled with the consequences of losing the presidential race, losing the Senate and losing seats in the House....
