  1. I think the GOP is ready for Steele's message now.

  2. So to answer AAAs question. Yes, the fiscal conservatives do need to stand in. I think a moderate like Boehner can get something done with the President.
  3. Steele presided over the the biggest election gains in seats in 60 years,yet because he could not raise money they changed leadership.
  4. He talks about that in this clip.
  5. another message to republicans:

    Former (Bush) Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, an adviser to former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Latino outreach, said Sunday the candidate's failure with those voters was due to hardliners in the Republican party who were "scaring the heck out of them."

    "The Hispanics I know were scared of the Republican party," he said on CNN's "State of the Union" in a blunt assessment of Romney's loss. "I think it has to do with our incredibly ridiculous primary process where we force people to say outrageous things, they get nominated, and they have to come back."

    Gutierrez worked under former President George W. Bush, who won around 40 percent of the Latino vote in 2004 -- over 10 points more than Romney won this year. The Latino vote was a pivotal part of the 2012 election, and it is widely acknowledged that the Republican Party could be forever damaged if it can't win over more Latinos in the future.

    He said extremists in the party were fully to blame for Romney's loss, pointing to "the anti-immigration talk, the xenophobes." "It's almost as if we are living in the past," he added.

  6. i dont think theyre ready yet.the anti abortion,anti immigrant and hard core tea party crowd are going to keep pulling candidates to the hard right in the primaries and they will damaged in the general election imo
  7. Its more proof that moderate Republicans don't win presidencies.
    They need to run on solid moral grounds, belief in God and kindness to all.
  8. Lucrum


    If they forsake their core beliefs just for votes. 1) they don't deserve to win 2) they might as well join the democraps

    Probably, but given that the parasite/entitlement/affirmative action/gay/welfare classes now outnumber responsible productive tax payers.

    It doesn't really matter any more.
  9. lol. this god crap is what lost them the election.


    “Millions of American evangelicals are absolutely shocked by not just the presidential election, but by the entire avalanche of results that came in,” R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Louisville, Ky., said in an interview. “It’s not that our message — we think abortion is wrong, we think same-sex marriage is wrong — didn’t get out. It did get out.

    “It’s that the entire moral landscape has changed,” he said. “An increasingly secularized America understands our positions, and has rejected them.”
  10. another message:
    Newt Gingrich 'Dumbfounded' By Obama's 'Extraordinary Victory' Over Mitt Romney

    The former House Speaker, who made a failed bid for the GOP presidential nomination earlier this year, said, "The president won an extraordinary victory. And the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to understand what they did and how they did it." He added, "But if you had said to me three weeks ago, Mitt Romney would get fewer votes than John McCain and it looks like he’ll be 2 million fewer, I would have been dumbfounded."

    In a Politico op-ed published online on Monday, Gingrich wrote, "For the conservative movement and the Republican Party to succeed in the future (and while they are not identical the two are inextricably bound together) we will have to learn the lessons of 2012." He explained, "An intellectually honest and courageous Republican Party has nothing to fear from the current situation."
