In 2016, GOP needs a
candidate voters believe in

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 11/9/2012 6:54:43 AM

In the wake of Mitt Romney's loss, many Republicans say the GOP must make far-reaching changes to be competitive in future elections. (Snip) On Thursday afternoon, the Obama campaign held its last conference call for reporters. What next for the enormous campaign infrastructure, with its massive databases and voter profiles? Will it go to a new candidate? "You can't just transfer this," said senior adviser Plouffe. "People are not going to spend hours away from their families, and their jobs, contributing financially when it's hard for them to do it, unless they believe in the candidate."

Comments:
This is the best post-election article I have read. All those Republican officials and pundits who are searching for the next technical solution for the party should read it. It is about a candidate who connects with people. If people had felt passionate about Romney the way Obama's people felt about him, three million people would have come out to vote and he would have won.

...comment continued. On the other hand, I predict Obama will move quickly to destroy all opposition. So none of this might matter. First up: assault weapon ban. Second: get rid of talk radio.

Like I was saying yesterday,we need a better salesman for our side,not becoming more like dems. Politics run in cycles and Obama's sure to do more damage in the next two years,so even stupid white people notice.

The first thing this country needs to do is to close the primaries. Republicans choose Republican candidates; Democrats choose Democrat candidates.

Second, let's make the Establishment/country club guys less important in our party. They seem to choose our losers more often than they choose our winners. Remember if it were left to our "establishment" NRSC chairman, Marco Rubio would still be in Florida.

I hope all those republicans that stayed home and didn't vote because they didn't see their idea of the perfect candidate in Mitt Romney are happy. 2016? Really? I don't think we will have a country left 4 years from now.

Amazed about the level of griping concerning Romney as a candidate. Did folks not watch the debates and see how good he was? Did you not follow the primaries and realize that Romney emerged as the winner?

Okay, so Romney was not conservative enough or charismatic enough to suit you? So you stayed home and allowed Obama to win??

Shame on conservative non-voters.

And who, pray tell, would that candidate be?

I still remember the GOP primaries and can't imagine the Republicans fully supporting ANY candidate, no matter how charismatic or principled.

Palin? Paul?

We screwed the pooch with all the focus on the presidency. Oblahma, our historic first black president, was always going to win reelection. The media and our keynote speaker saw to that. We should have focused on making gains in the Senate and House. Instead we ignored these races and ended up with rubes like Akin and Mourdock on the ballot. Going forward we need to repeat 2010 in 2014. Melanin will not be on the ballot so we won't have racist blacks showing up in droves at the polling places. If we cave on taxes and let the Dems own the depression we will be in the cat bird seat come 2014. If we cave on immigration reform the country is lost.

Mitt had to spend millions on the stupid primaries. They shouldn't have happened. Gingrich, santorum helped the loss. That money could have been spent fighting off those negative ads in key states days before Nov.6. Why did any registered republican not come out. They must be suicidal too.

It appears that people are more interested in saving the GOP than saving the country. As long as the well being of the GOP is the primary concern, the problems this country faces will continue to be pushed off on to our children and grandchildren.

Mitt could not have been a more splendid candidate, but that may have been part of the problem. The politics of envy were employed successfully against him. If you are going to be jealous of somebody, the handsome, brilliant accomplished, honorable family man Mitt is certainly a prime target.

I don't agree with this article. Romney, John McCain, or a George Bush second term would have been better for the country. Something is wrong with the voters, who are bent on ruin, and can't get there fast enough. I only wish we were not on the same plane, and they could crash without us on board.

Ah, but the challenge - as it was this year - is to come up with the candidate whom all Republican voters plus a fair number of those who have no party preference will believe in.

The Democrats vote for the person with a (D) after their name while the Republicans are still shooting their own candidates down.

It would have been great fun to watch Palin eviscerate Capt Zippy in the debates on national TV - She's been a governor - something Zippy never was. Just think of the comic opportunities for talking about Zippy getting beat by a girl, etc... And she would have pulled a portion (except for the rabid feminazis) of Zippy's womens demographics - and support the constitution. Of course, libtards (in both parties) wouldn't have liked her, but the 7 million missing eligible voters just might have turned up. Fun to imagine.

The dems groomed Obama for at least six years for the 2008 election. They used the 2004 convention as his coming out party and declared him debutante of the year. When are the republicans going to learn. Choose a few of their best and brightest, place them in no lose situations with loads of publicity. Establish a positive brand for them before they even enter the race. And finally, read them the riot act about obeying Reagan's eleventh commandment. Read Alinsky to know what they're up against and plan how to counteract the attacks. Let's get going right now.

If the repubs repeat this type of candidate, I will not vote. The country is fubar now. Do you really think voting for another dem lite will help? Bush, McPain, Romney. Three up three down, see ya. Oh, don't forget Dole.

The Environmental Protection Agency says a rule it proposed this week merely clarifies its existing authority over the nation´s waterways. Republicans say it´s "the biggest land grab in the history of the world," as House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., called it. There is some certainty about the EPA´s rule defining the waters of the United States -- the buzz it has generated is not going away any time soon. The EPA, in conjunction with the Army Corps of Engineers, says the proposed rule would clarify which streams, rivers, wetlands and other waterways are within its regulatory jurisdiction.

Crossword puzzles in a local Venezuelan newspaper are calling readers to violent protests with conspiratorial messages, the country’s information minister said today. Delcy Rodriguez called for an investigation of El Aragueno daily from the industrial town of Maracay, 120 kilometers (75 miles) west of Caracas for putting “encrypted messages” in its puzzles, she said in a post on her Twitter account. She didn’t give any details.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on Thursday signed a measure into law that eliminates absentee voting on weekends ahead of elections but vetoed a provision that restricted weekday voting hours across the state. Wisconsin law allows voters to cast absentee ballots by mail or hand them in to their polling places before election day. Supporters have said the new law creates uniform and fair rules, while critics have said it disenfranchises voters. Walker, a Republican who is seeking re-election, vetoed a part of the bill the majority Republican legislature approved that capped voting at 45 hours per week. Voting will be allowed only

Maryland’s legislature on Thursday passed a transgender equality bill that will ban discrimination based on gender identity in employment, housing and public accommodations, one of the first of such statutes in the nation. Some lawmakers objected, warning that women and girls could find biological males in their bathrooms, and employers may be exposed to civil rights investigations if they decline to hire a transgender person. Still, the measure easily passed the Democratic-led House of Delegates, 82-57. The “Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2014” had already passed the Maryland Senate. It now goes to Democratic Gov.

Unfortunately, the answer to that question is yes, and it’s becoming increasingly clear that the joke is on the American taxpayer. Late Tuesday, the Department of Health and Human Services – which has taken to bragging about “enrollment” numbers that fall millions short of their original goals – announced that the March 31st deadline for open enrollment had become more of a guideline.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.
