I think Ann is pointing out that the GOP has not learned how to sell its values to voters. They have not learned how to differentiate themselves from the Democrats. They can't explain sufficiently why other races should vote for the GOP rather than the Democrats. Doesn't matter what candidate they put forth, the message is weak, weak, weak. How hard is it show that the Democrats aren't doing anything for Latinos and Blacks? How hard is it to show that having real competition for leadership helps everyone get better leaders. When the Democrats can take the Latinos and Blacks for granted, they don't have to pay much attention to them. They can concentrate on other blocs and other issues. The GOP has to learn to be better at selling.
