Condoleezza Rice: GOP
sent 'mixed messages'

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 10:27:45 AM

WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the Republican Party must adapt better to rapidly changing demographics in the United States, saying the GOP sent "mixed messages" in the election campaign on immigration and women's issues. Rice tells "CBS This Morning" the changing face of America "really necessitates" new thinking. She says, quote, "When you send mixed messages, sometimes people hear only one side of that." Rice says the GOP came close to matching the Democrats in the popular vote. But she also acknowledges that "clearly we are losing important segments" of the

Comments:
The GOP stood no chance against the fraud utilized by the vicious, corrupt Chicago thugs. It wouldn't have mattered what "message" the GOP sent. I remember 0bama early on November 6 stating firmly he was going to win. I doubt that was just because of over confidence.

The fix was in way before the 1st debate. How else do you explain such a poor performance by Obama? He knew he would win no matter what.

Condition weren't you out there campaigning for Romney and the Republicans? Did you send a mixed message, who exactly sent a mixed message? It also doesn't matter what the issue is when your looking at a fiscal cliff.

No. Poor leadership, a primary proces that showed Conservatives how poorly the GOP think of them, a candidate who is a good man but a bad candidate, and an ineffective, wimpy, "we're moderate" party philosophy is what is what has taken the GOP one step closer to extinction.

The only question at this point is whether the repubs will finish caving before or after the New Year.

Incompetent fools.

Republicans have to be careful with the way they present their platform. 'I will get rid of Obamacare' sounds good to conservatives, but it scares the dumb masses. The comments by Akin and Mourdock just totally scare the DM, and are used by the left dems, and broadcast far and wide by the old media, in painting conservatives as extreme. You have to explain to the DM why your message is better for them. You can't just leave these proclamations hanging out there. And you have to refute, immediately, any falsehood by the left and the old media. It's hard to get your message out there as the old media will not give conservatives a fair shake, but you have to try.

agree w OP. Still, the Donks find it difficult to cheat in the vast range of House elections, formally the holders of the purse. It should be fun to keep reminding the Donks of that. Listen, can we at last do the Constitution WebTV? It would raise spirits. Will involve a lot of explanations about what a pain in the neck NY is, and always has been. Lucianne or RNC fundraiser? It should be a Reconciliation, with everybody in it. Steyn as Patrick Henry, Coulter as Alexander Hamilton, and Gov Palin as Roger Sherman.

Another "Electable" Republican Moderate candidate who lost. Loser Moderate Republicans won't be happy until they can just vote for the Democrat. Once again the cries of Moderation have cost us an election. On the bright side we get to do the whole dance all over again in four years because Republican Moderates, unlike Conservatives, have proven themselves incapable of admitting they are wrong, wrong, wrong.

The message was not wrong at all! Life and the sanctity of new life is precious in the eyes of God. Conservatives (as opposed to many in the GOP) do not believe that abortion is an attractive alternative to HIGH MORAL STANDARDS. What the hell is wrong with people? If we sacrifice our principles, we throw God into the street. Only those who live decent lives will be blessed with freedom. Right now, God is on most people's back burner, but he will yet prevail and many will be sorry that they trashed his sacred word.

The “mixed message” was introduced by the media. One idiot makes a clueless comment about conception, next thing you know, all conservatives think the same thing. Someone introduces the idea that Romney is going to take your rubbers away and it becomes a fact everywhere but Fox and Lucianne. Liberals nearly universally believe the world will end if we don’t stop producing coal and oil. As a result, a little more than half the country, it seems, are delusional. We will see if four more years will smarten them up, or make them even worse.

Oh I get it, we need to pander to uneducated liberals to get their vote.

The unwashed masses now outnumber the the last generation of Americans still pleading for a Constitutional Republic based on equal rights for all. Condi's suggestion is an insult to that principle.

I am so sick of this talk about how we have to change for the immigrants. We are failing to look at what uncontrolled immigration, H1-B programs (which collapsed American wages) and lack of acculturation of the immigrants we already has done. Color votes for color--get over it.Against all economic logic and reason.

Reasons why:
1) Too many immigrants are 'global (fill in the nationality)' and are weakly committed to the US for starters. Doesn't matter if they are hard-working. Mentality remains in the old country, no interest in really being more than superficially American.
2) They brought in their 'tribal' perspective, expectations of corruption, prejudices and working the system from Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Latin America and the Middle East, and are imposing it here.
3) We failed in acculturating them

I speak as the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants, who largely ended their ties with the 'old country' when they came through Ellis Island. We need to drastically wind down immigration, make citizenship meaningful by making it a difficult, long process, end H-1B programs, and not let down OUR standards.

Either they decide to embrace us PUBLICLY as an important part of the base, recognize it as THE reason for 2010 midterm election success or just expect to keep losing.

real or invented.

We need to stop talking about the loss... fix the election process which even shocked the UN minders by not req'd ID...

And only let GOPers quote the Constitution, Bill of rights & Religious Freedom as our message.

Hispanics are predominately Christian but the invented hate by the left trumped their religion.Hispanics, other than La Raza & radicals... should all be GOPers.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more.

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said.
