“Young voters call GOP ‘closed-minded,’ ‘racist,’ and ‘solely for the rich’ 1


NBC NEWS

By Morgan Whitaker

“Solely for the rich.”

“Lacking in diversity.”

“Closed-minded.”

“Racist.”

Old-fashioned.”

This is how younger voters characterized the Republican party, according to a 95-page study released Monday by the College Republican National Committee. The report’s authors had an equally blunt assessment: “dismal present situation.”

Voters under 30 criticized the party for its stance on issues like same-sex marriage and contraception, while the report’s authors blamed what they describe as “errant Republicans’ voices.”

But like the Republican National Committee’s own autopsy from earlier this year, the report gives few suggestions for policy changes that might win over the youth vote, focusing instead on messaging. The report does suggest that the party be “open to debate” on marriage equality.

Minority voters present an especially significant challenge for the GOP.

“[Republicans have] that mentality that you’re born like royalty and the peasants stay peasants,” a young Hispanic voter said, according to the report. “I don’t think that is the view that America was founded on. This is supposed to be a land of opportunity.”

Another young Hispanic voter blasted the party over the defunding of Planned Parenthood. “I think Romney wanted to cut Planned Parenthood. And he supports policies where it would make it harder for a woman to get an abortion should she choose, even if it were medically necessary. That goes…with redefining rape,” she said.

“Reince Priebus Drunk At The RNC 2012”


YOU TUBE

Published on Oct 21, 2012

RNC chairman and malevolent prankster imp Reince Priebus had a few too many Colorado Bulldogs before his speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention. As a result, instead of the electrifying rally cry his puppeteers had hoped would whip the base into a frenzy, Reince’s appearance consisted of a slurred, intoxicated “Jersey Shore“-esque booty call to his two biggest frenemies.

Later that evening, Priebus was forced back into his ancient puzzle box after being tricked into saying his own name three times backwards. He appeared again only briefly to introduce the white supremacist frat-brat son of former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson as a private fundraiser for underprivileged yacht owners.

“Weak Tea? 5 Signs the Tea Party is floundering” 1


NBC NEWS

By Adam Garnett

Is the party over for the Tea Party?

The Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank penned a piece Wednesday, in which he outlined recent events suggesting an atrophy of the Tea Party’s muscles in Republican circles. Here are the five developments within the past week Milbank used to make his case:

  • Last Thursday: At the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a possible presidential candidate, scolds fellow Republicans for obsessing over cutting budgets and says, ”We’ve got to stop being the stupid party.”
  • Friday afternoon: Sensing a possible national backlash, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (another likely 2016 Republican presidential hopeful) comes out against a GOP electoral college-rigging plan hatched by the state’s Republican-controlled legislature. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder have since distanced themselves from similar legislative proposals–which many Tea Partiers endorse–in their states.
  • Friday night: Word leaks out that Fox News and Tea Party hero Sarah Palin have decided to part ways after a three-year marriage. How the mighty have fallen.
  • Saturday: Reports surface that House Speaker John Boehner made a speech to the Ripon Society, a Republican public policy organization, in which he called some members of his caucus “hard heads.”
  • Monday: A bipartisan group if senators, including rising star (and Tea Party favorite) Marco Rubio, unveils a comprehensive immigration reform plan. The plan doesn’t focus just on enforcement, but allows for a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the country.

Despite signs Republicans and their supporters are growing wary about the Tea Party’s grip on the GOP, Milbank told guest host Michael Smerconish on Wednesday night’s Hardball that the Tea Party’s ultimate demise does not appear to be imminent.

The Tea Party itself isn’t over but what I think you have is some of the more sober revelers in the Tea Party heading for the exits because they realize this thing is getting rowdy and police are going to be showing up and it’s going to get really ugly,” Milbank said. ”People who have national aspirations, who are interested in 2016, who realize the party has to change are growing a bit of bravery right now and saying, ‘we can’t continue to tolerate this.’”  FULL  ARTICLE
