Freedom of the press included the press freedom to obfuscate for and excuse Obama and Holder while the administration was suppressing those other parts of the First Amendment that apparently has nothing to do with the press at all: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
I can’t decide if the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) minority outreach effort is more like watching a sitcom or a soap opera dubbed “The Young and the Foolish.”
Every time I think the Republican National Committee is going to give me a break and not do something insulting, they give me another reason why neither I nor any other conservative should have any confidence in the RNC.
It’s been described as an autopsy, and given much of what’s in it, truer words were never spoken.
The Republican Party desperately needs to attract young people if it wants to survive. Yet, the recently released Republican National Committee’s Growth and Opportunity Project report signals that the party doesn’t understand how to reach young voters.
The art of persuasion is a bit like billiards; finesse beats force. It’s easy to imagine the opposite is true. I’ll admit I’ve daydreamed about delivering a hard-hitting speech packed with statistics and elegant phases to family members or friends who immediately cast aside their long held beliefs convinced that my position is the one right path.
A claque of liberals and media bigwigs are calling RNC Chairman Reince Priebus's 97-page political opus an "autopsy," which the dictionary defines as the dissection of a body after death. Some people are hoping the Republican Party is dead, but the grassroots are raring to rise up and fight.
President Obama knows for a fact what many in the Republican Party — especially its "leadership" — fail to understand or acknowledge:
Republicans now have a comprehensive "autopsy" report detailing some of the perceived and some of the real shortcomings of the 2012 presidential election. And the rather optimistically named Growth and Opportunity Project's report is jampacked with so many painfully obvious observations that one wonders why it had to be written in the first place.
Evidently, it takes four months and 100 pages for the RNC to figure out why the party lost the 2012 presidential election and how to fix it. Most of conservatives could tell you in three paragraphs. That 100-page Growth & Opportunity Project to me was billed by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as a “bold, raw, real” autopsy of the state of the GOP.
The Republican National Committee is out with a 100-page analysis of how the party can revive its sagging fortunes.
For the first time, I am wondering about the long-term viability of the Republican Party.
The Democrats have to be bent over in derisive laughter as the national Republican party flagellates itself for irrelevance, backwardness and plain old stupidity. (Ow! Ow! Hee, hee, haw, haw!)
Ahead of a report coming out on Monday, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus says that part of the reason his party lost the White House was because it failed to connect with voters. Sharyl Attkisson reports.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has launched a nationwide “Growth and Opportunity Project” reviewing eight key areas he believes must be examined in the wake of a disappointing 2012 campaign.
Obama continues to blame Congress for a sequester he supported.
