I know of a whole county full of farmers and most of them are bigots.

Most with any education see through the media bs, and are now voting on real domestic issues like the economy and jobs. (Sorry, GOP ) diversionary tactics no longer work.

Grover Norquist also needs to retire. He is a disgrace.
Those diversionary tactics:

Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult | Truthout

Among the GOP base, there is constant harping about somebody else, some "other," who is Subversives. deliberately, assiduously and with malice aforethought subverting the Good, the True and the Beautiful: Commies. Socialists. *******s. Secular humanists. Blacks. ****. Feminazis. The list may change with the political needs of the moment, but they always seem to need a scapegoat to hate and fear.

I think the POTUS has done abetter job than McCain. So many want to whine about suffering under this economy and refuse to understand there is pain with these consequences of our economy nearly collapsing.
McCain would have been a disaster, he's answer to anything is military action. As bad as Syria is it would be far worse with us in there. The McCain invasion of Iran would have added trillions to the debt and cost tens of thousands of our troops.

Yep, the flip flop on the state of the economy was scary. On day he claims everything is fine and then he wants to cancel the debates and his campaign... Seriously flawed.

When it comes to taking back the House and Senate, I desperately hope that you're right.
well, no one can accuse the GOP of EVER understanding women and minorities right...they dig their own graves...look at Newt...

They are living in the 1940's. I see people like that all the time where I currently reside (unfortunately). The angry old white men want to go back to a time "when America was theirs", and no one else's.

Do they care about jobs, the economy or any practical domestic issues? No. it is all about misogyny and bigotry. Their partisanship is nailing this economy into the ground, and the GOP could care less.

Why isn't the GOP more appealing to non-whites, and what can they do to change that? Or should they even try?
Non-white voters should change their attitudes and realize that this nation was not formed to give any one particular group free stuff.

We don't need them anyway.

well said.

Women dont vote for a party that considers "Femi-Nazi" an acceptable term. We are in economic hard times, and all the GOP does is lie and confabulate. It is all they are capable of doing as they do not give a damn about what is really happening to America.

The populace wants answers on the economy and jobs, and the GOP as usual has no solutions.

All of the parties "give away" something though. Just what do you call corporate welfare?

Ah the GOP, don't they provide for a lot of entertainment? The GOP doesn't even like the GOP, it would need to hang a raw steak around it's neck, to get Mitt's Seamus to like them.

Obama has had four years to provide those answers and so far he has left us empty handed. Instead Obama has spent the past four years pushing his green agenda which is HURTING the economy.
