I have gathered a few conclusions about this.

1) The persons who have said these things have no idea how offensive what they are saying sounds.

2) The persons who have said these things are not really interested in drawing in more Black people to the Republican Party, but rather, are sore losers who can't get over the fact that Mitt Romney lost.

This is the GOP's obituary, The party's continued talking points are likened to a chicken with it's head cut off. Still moving but only from past impulses that came from the now severed head.

This is demise, not of the country but the country YOU and your party will never see.

Is this bragging or putting down anything 'undesirable', such as non white or LBGT? And if so, wont Glorious superior Texas eventually inherit what they criticize about California? Sounds like we feeble Californians will be left with a lot more room to rebuild and improve. Thanks Texas!

You're right. We should vote for the party that tells us we are the reason America is so screwed up, that we commit all the crime, suck up all the "entitlements," are lazy and - what about this - moronically stupid. The stupid ones are the ones - of any race - who continue to back the GOP.

, btw, I am a white male, and find these comments reprehensible. They were no doubt aimed at driving the Southern, white male, rural, uneducated vote, and that group is one I truly wish both parties had conspired to ignore after their Civil Rights hissy fit.

They are unworthy of a place for reasoned, political discussion.

They are, thankfully, just a minority of even the Southern GOP, but they are vocal, and have disproportinate primary power.

Every 4 years, IMO, their antics at the debates drive a backlash, educated white vote against the GOP, whom they would be prone to vote for, if they could tolerate them at all.

The Dems could not have sabotaged the GOP any better than this segment of the base hurts the GOP.

Welcome to city-data. Apparently, you haven't seen what some conservatives post around here. Look around and then talk.

I think we both agree that the worst mistake the GOP made was appealing to the worst elements of Southern culture. Rather the party could have been appealing to the likes of James Earl Carter and Morris Dees.

What is needed is a more moderate tone, on both sides. If both sides ignored them, I think we would have been better along.

And you are right, they are minority of the southern GOP members.

What I've learned is this. Sometimes, it isn't the largest group that speaks the loudest. It is the angriest that speaks the loudest. I understand what you're talking about.

I think a new strategy is to draw in a more moderate population, of all races,to try and be a uniting force.

Correct. The GOP could actually win 1 or 2 states in either NE or the Mid Atlantic every 4 years except for these rural ignornant lowlifes. They could win New Mexico like they used to, perhaps Florida, again were it not for this group.

They are angry because despite being uneducated they know Lindsay Graham is correct, their power has been waning, and continues to decline, except for a few months when they yell "Let them die" or boo "children of illegals being educated (Rick Perry)", and volla, a few months later, the GOP nominee gets thrashed, and the joke was on this ignorant group as no group despises the Dems more, yet truth be told, they elect them.

19 states have been blue 6 staright times, and have 243 electoral votes, 90% before the Dem does squat to earn a swing state. Add in NOVA and NM now, and one is at 261. That means wining any remaining swing state seals the deal. So much for the Southern strategy, huh? The Edsel had a better business plan. If I were a Dem, I'd tell the GOP "Hey, you can have the confederacy plus depopulated mountain states". "I'll take the coasts where people LIVE", add rapidly changing states (demographics) like Va, NM, Colorado, and laugh at your foolish insistence on clinging to a futile gameplan.

This may surprise you, but there were others who don't fit that definition who liked the '50s.
White women hated those days, wonder why...

blaming blacks is a cop out, the blame for the "new America" is mostly on women rights and they've done alot better since they have gotten their wish.

Republicans would never blame women, abortion isn't the real issue, women making money, having choices and living freely is the real republican beef, unfortunately not one white man would ever get out of line in that department.

Not directed at anyone in particular.

As a black person I don't care what the stupid, moronic, idiots on Fox or RWNJ radio say. No one except people who buy into the idiotic things spewed from those media sources cares what any of them say.

If the folks in charge of the GOP keep making these media whores the spokespeople for their party, they will continue to lose big in presidential elections in the foreseeable future.

And FWIW, Romney was not a good candidate. He didn't have a stance on anything really. Why would a smart person vote for him?? If the GOP would have run a better candidate maybe they would have had a different result and wouldn't resort to finger wagging/fist clenching while muttering (and posting ridiculous threads) "It was those gosh darn BLACKS!!!"

LOL
