After the nation is bankrupted, we'll all go back to being conservatives because Democrats won't have any more money to buy the votes of the recipient class.
...um, "Season's Greetings" and "Happy Holidays" y'all!

If you think there is anything bigotted about this you are way off. Some like to pander to the minorities, others like to choose the best qualified..The congress doesn't choose their chairpeople using affirmative action.

There are several names we could add, but the left just isn't about to accept that we are really less bigotted and more tolerant than the other side. Let them have their fun....

30 Really Lame Republican Excuses For Losing The Election
I have never referred to Obama in that manner so shove it where the sun don't shine. Mostly all I have heard on this forum are continued insults of the GOP by the sore winners on the left that got Obama elected once again and that is not being a gracious winner. Admit the truth and it shall set you free.

As a nation, our demographics have changed many times, and each time we were better for it. The 21st century changes will be no different. They will force the GOP to either adapt or go the way of the Whigs, though. Time will tell which path they freely chose.
Sorry, no. As each decade goes by we have gotten worse because we are becoming morally bankrupt due to liberalism. So the GOP should adapt to illegal immigration, abortion, gay marriage, socialism, high debt, low wages and the destruction of Christianity in our country? Is that really the direction our country should be going in? If so, we will no longer be the USA. But then maybe that is what you and the rest of the left and liberals want.

The problem he has is shared by millions. the attitude of the present GOP towards ALL immigrants is 180 degrees away from 43's progressive attitude. The GOP did a fine job of saying "They hate everything" this year, and were properly taken to the political woodshed on November 6th.
The objection isn't to legal citizens or legal immigrants. It is to illegal immigration. How many times does that have to be explained? That is nothing but a crop of lies that the GOP objects to legal immigrants! You can't even quote a Republican making such a statement because it is BS and you know it!

As for hate. I have heard more hate spewed towards the right than the othe way around.

Meanwhile in the real world, hispanic folks don't seem to share your criteria for hate (no doubt buried somewhere in those 30 ''gracious'' excuses why y'all lost)...

Conservative Latino Leader Quits GOP In Texas
DALLAS -- Lauro Garza, head of Somos Republicans, the largest organization of Latino conservatives in Texas, has quit the Republican Party because of what he described as the anti-Latino rhetoric of GOP leaders.

"There is no place for Latinos in the Republican Party", Garza, who had identified as a Republican for 30 years, said in Spanish.

Amnesty is going to happen. Just as it did in 1986 with the conservative hero Reagan. 12 million were NEVER going to be self deported this year, no matter who won 11/6.

I would love to hear political discourse about ways to reduce the flow of future illegal immigaration while also making the path to citizenship a far less onerous path. That would be useful, while the wing nut talk about 12 million is fruitless.

and who was just elected in Texas to replace Kay Baily Hutcheson? Not only did he win, he defeated a very well known Republican to get the nomination..I guess your little information, which may not even be totally accurate means nothing, except to you..?? You are getting your inforamtion from a slightly slanted publication.

Perhaps it will dawn on the someone in the GOP that a sensible white guy would do more to attract minority voters than a token minority. But I doubt it.
The question is does the GOP have a sensible White guy than can win the Republican Party presidential nomination anymore? Jon Huntsman seemed like a fairly sensible individual and yet he was TOTALLY repudiated by the Republican Party faithful.
