A recent HuffPo piece, quotes one of Romney’s 2012 campaign aides blaming his boss’s loss on an East Coast hurricane! He dismisses outright the infamous 47% tape, you know, the one in which Romney claims half the population is basically on the dole, as well as the Democrats huge get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort.
Smarter people in the GOP reason that to win back the White House, “the party needed to be more inclusive, with toned down rhetoric and legislative pursuits like immigration reform. Others inside the GOP were convinced that Romney had lost not because he alienated people of color and female voters, but because he just wasn’t inspirationally conservative enough.”
Never once does the article mention GOP values. Toning down rhetoric won’t solve the very real problems of the poor, nor will it excuse 50 years of GOP attacks on voting rights.
When will they every learn?
