House GOP boasts diversity and new conservatives, like Mia Love | The Salt Lake Tribune

The GOP already had a surprising edge on diversity and just bumped it up a notch with the 2014 mid terms.

I think we will look back on 2014 as a turning point with the election of people like Mia Love, Tim Scott, Elise Stefnik, Will Hurd, and Carlos Curbelo. This is a great time to be alive, and I am proud of my party.

the GOP is still over 90 percent white.

like i said, wake me up when the party is 25 percent non white and then i'll start paying attention.

ill be called a racist, but that means getting rid of white men and replacing them with minorities. that's the only way the GOP can achieve that diversity.

gtc, the GOP is more diverse than the Democrats, not according to me, but according to liberal pundit Jon Avlon.
GOP's surprising edge on diversity - CNN.com

And the GOP does not have a strategy of dividing us according to skin tone. The Democrats do, not according to me, but according to Hillary Clinton.
The 2008 Democratic primaries and the race card.

This is an exciting time, and you can join in or indulge in sour grapes...your choice.

This is due to Repubs being a bandwagon based party. Suddenly they want to promote women and people of color when this whole time they have been back handing the two (even tho the party is still an overwhelming majority).

This is only fact when you look at the definitions of the term Progressives (Liberal) continue to crave the path of the future while Conservatives sit in the back and whine and protest against these things so they could possibly say 'Told You so, ya dumb Libs' up until the point they see its not going anywhere. Now suddenly they are trying their best to include women and people of color--go figure. Conservatives are always two steps behind.

My money is on it--two more years you will see the GOP toting around their token 'Gay Conservative' then suddenly changing their tune to stay 'current'.

Proud of Grothman ZInke and Mark walker too. Hice is a little nutty, I'll give you that. Someone needs to shut him up because he can hurt the broader Republican brand with his individual views.

1. Your link that says the GOP has a lead in diversity is about Governors, not congress.

2. In Congress, there are like 86, none white Democrats and 22 Non white republicans. its not even close

Again, you didnt read either of your links

The first one says Republicans have more latino governors, Its not talking about Congress, where as you clearly are. And Democrats have a gigantic lead there.

Your second link is o your own failed thread where you are quoting a rumor of a rumor about who started a rumor.

You are far to old to be arguing a fallacy that deep, LOL.
