Un grande problema.
Rarely does a political party issue a document so scathingly critical of itself and its most recent presidential nominee as the report of the five-member Growth and Opportunity Project of the Republican National Committee.
With President Obama corralling a stunning 71% of the Hispanic vote in his successful 2012 re-election bid, “establishment Republicans” are running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to figure out how to get a piece of America’s fastest growing demographic. (I’ve opined about how the GOP has written off the black vote as unattainable. I guess when the Hispanic vote approaches 90% for Democrats, Republicans will reconsider ignoring blacks like the heels of their shoes.)
I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.
Although Mitt Romney took flak for his statement that he lost the election because President Obama bestowed “gifts” on key parts of the electorate, what he said is basically true.
After moments of panic in the immediate aftermath of Mitt Romney's defeat, some Republicans and conservatives are regaining their equilibrium on the issue of what the GOP should do about immigration and the Hispanic vote.
Conservatives have been dreaming that a political reincarnation of Ronald Reagan would lead them to an electoral promised land. I never put my faith in such a possibility, because the past is a dangerous place in which to live. Reagan never lived in the past, though he learned from it.
New York Yankees great Yogi Berra once famously observed, “When you come to a fork in the road—take it.”
Bill O'Reilly suggests Romney's failure to emerge strongly after Hurricane Sandy cost him the presidency.
After much deliberation, I have decided to vote for Mitt Romney. My reasoning is based upon both economics and moral principles. I am thankful for the ground-breaking achievement our nation experienced by electing our first black president. Collectively, we are a creating a post racial America. If we are serious about delivering our nation from her original sin of “racism,” we will have to hold President Obama accountable for his abandonment of foundational moral values and his failed economic policies. We cannot accept his blame-game excuses as the reason for our increasing national woes.
