I must admit Mr. Goldberg that you had me a little worried about your article's opening statement. If the GOP really wants to submerge itself completely into the political mud, then by all means, just pander to any and every ethnic group. What the GOP needs are leaders who can articulate the conservative ideals that make our country great in direct and truthful way. I'm absolutely tired of politicians and pundants (of all party affiliations) who treat blacks, hispanics and any other ethnicity like some kind of "special needs" constituency. Look folks, most Americans (which includes all ethnicities) want the same things: to have a job, be able to pay their bills and to be unhindered by the government or anyone else (just to name a few).
