Gingrich: GOP needs to be “inclusive” ^

Gingrich: GOP needs to be “inclusive”

In the aftermath of Mitt
Romney’s presidential loss last week, Newt Gingrich is joining the
cadre of Republicans calling for the Republican Party to more actively
reach out to a more diverse electorate, arguing on Monday that the party
needs to become more “inclusive.”

“I think we need to be
inclusive, and I emphasize the difference between inclusive and
outreach,” Gingrich said Monday morning in an appearance on ABC’s “The
View.” “Outreach is when five white guys have a meeting and call you.
Inclusive is when you’re in the meeting. And I think we have to
understand to be inclusive.”

Gingrich, who was joined by his wife
Callista on the show, argued that Republicans had “misunderstood the
American people” in 2012, and that the GOP can’t just wait until 2016 to
try to broaden its reach.

“The Republican doctrine of highly
paid consultants spending hundreds of millions of dollars on 30-second
ads doesn’t build a party,” he said. “The Republican Party better not
wait until 2016. The Republican Party better rethink in 2013 how we’re
going to deal with the country’s issues and do it in a way that the
average American looks up and says, you know, those are folks I’m
willing to trust with my future. We lost that.”

He added that
“there were a whole series of fundamental things that were really wrong”
with how the GOP framed the 2012 election, including the fact that the
Obama campaign so successfully appealed to non-white voters.

Oh shut up…

He says great things at times, but he doesn’t always mean them. He is an opportunist.

Ruling Class GOP Blames Me

Rush ^

| November 12, 2012
| Rush Limbaugh

Posted on Monday, November 12, 2012 1:26:59 PM by Kaslin


RUSH: Just as I predicted, ladies and gentlemen — wait ’til you
hear the sound bites — this election was lost because of your host,
Rush Limbaugh. I am the primary reason.

(Tommy) Well, it’s nice to see you taking responsibility for once, viagra-boy)

There are others, but I’m the primary reason the Republican
Party lost. And I am, by the way, the primary reason the Republican
Party will keep losing, until I am denounced by the Republican Party.
Which, I’m gonna predict to you… What is today? The 12th of November.
I’m gonna lay out a possible scenario where that could happen, because
we’re trending in that direction.


RUSH: Do you remember that piece by Angelo Codevilla that came
out in summer 2010 in the American Spectator called “The Ruling Class”?
We spent a lot of time here analyzing it and talking about it. That’s
what we face today. And our guys in the upper echelon of the Republican
Party want to fashion themselves as members of the ruling class.

We, the country class, are not in the ruling class. We’re the
problem. A couple of sound bites, then I’ll illustrate. Let’s just pick a
couple at random, but grab number one. Meet the Press during the
roundtable. The guest is Republican strategist Steve Schmidt, who
authored the John McCain defeat against Barack Obama in 2008. Steve
Schmidt, the consultant who came up with the plan that secured defeat in
the presidential election, has the answer.

SCHMIDT: The Republican Party needs to get it together on its
outreach to Latinos. And it’s good to hear that Lindsey Graham and Chuck
Schumer are going to start advancing comprehensive immigration reform
again, because we have to get this off the table as a political issue
for the party. And we also have to have a zero tolerance with the
terrible tone that’s coming out of the talk radio universe and some of
our leaders in Congress who are serially disrespectful to this
fastest-growing demographic in the country.

RUSH: He wasn’t finished. He continued…

SCHMIDT: To too many swing voters in the country when you hear
the word “conservative,” now they think of loons and wackos. We gave up
five US Senate seats over the last two election cycles by people who
were just out there, completely extreme, manifestly unprepared for the
offices that they’re running for. Our elected leaders are scared to
death of the conservative entertainment complex, the shrill and divisive
voices that are bombastic and broadcasting out into the homes. And this
country is rejecting the social extremism of the Republican Party on
issue after issue.


There’s more after this, mostly consisting of verbal manure like

“Do you really think that the Democrat Party will ever allow you
Republicans to be seen as pro-Latino and pro-immigration? If you do, you
are incompetent and unqualified.”

Incompetent? It’s your demographic. You see, I’ve heard who advertises on your show.

“Unqualified”? For what exacly? Walking and chewing gum at the same time?

Let’s see how Dittohead Nation is reacting to El Flushbo’s frantic attempts to evade blame for making the GOP look like it is peopled entirely by the Freeperati:

Article I, Section 8- Only congress can approve to start war.

2. Obamacare is unconstitutional. Forcing US citizens to get health insurance whether they want it or not.

3. Obama disrespects our Constitution calling it flawed and trying to change it even after taking this oath:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States,

and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

4. Appointing agency “czars” without Senate approval.

Post-election season is a time for healing, for putting aside the
rancor of a long campaign and rediscovering what unites us. It has not
been that way this year.

Prudence, one would think, if not
generosity of spirit, should impel Democrats to be magnanimous in
victory. Romney did receive about 48 percent of the vote. A little
modesty among the winners would seem to be in order.

Instead, the
gloating has been extravagant. Worse, liberals have gorged themselves
on the same junk food they enjoyed during the campaign and cannot seem
to resist under any circumstances — slandering their opponents. The
smears are so casual and commonplace that we become weary of responding.
But we must protest, or someone new to politics may assume that we
concede the point.

Appearing on “Meet the Press”, documentary
filmmaker Ken Burns attributed conservative unhappiness with the
election to racism. “Race is always there in America,” Burns opined.
“It’s always something we don’t want to talk about. Do you think we’d
have a secession movement — a faddish movement — if this president
wasn’t [sic] African-American? Do you think the vitriol that came out of
some elements of the Tea Party?”

Ken Burns is a fine filmmaker. I
met him once, and I found him to be engaging and amiable. It’s painful
to see him descend to this kind of defamation. Some disappointed
Republicans are talking secession in Texas and elsewhere. This is proof
of racism? Is this the standard of evidence Burns employs for his films?

Stalin or Mugabe at heart.

primary, ultimately forcing the contest to run as late as April when

A man who killed two teenagers in his home in Little Falls on
Thanksgiving Day told investigators he shot and wounded the two at close
range before “finishing” them with shots to the head.

David Smith, 64, was charged Monday, Nov. 26, in Morrison County
District Court with two counts of second-degree murder without
premeditation in the deaths of Nicholas Brady, 17, and his cousin Haile
Kifer, 18.

Smith claims Brady and Kifer broke into his home and he was “fearful” they had weapons, according to the criminal complaint.

Dude thinks he’s Judge Dredd.

He’ll be in prison for the rest of his life.

(Tommy) Of course, one Freeper insists on actually pointing a few details out:

To: rurgan

You should read the article. He is sitting in the basement, and shoots them with a .223 as they come down the stairs.
(according to him, the boy comes down the stairs and he shoots him twice
with a mini-14. Then he drags the body away. Then he says the girl
comes down the stairs into the same basement where the 223 has just been
fired twice, indoors. O-kkkk, i believe that)
But that could probably still be ok, even if many people could have handled it better.

But then he says the girl laughed at him. (Thats in his estimation).
Thats right, the 18 year old girl punched from 10 feet with a .223,
seeing her dead companion/bf with his head splattered with a 223,
giggled at him. (i suppose anything is -possible-on some level)
So he gets a .22 pistol, and shoots her numerous times in the chest.
He drags her across the floor and lays her beside where he already
dragged the boy he shot. He sees she is still gasping to breathe. So he
puts the 22 under her chin and does a “good clean finishing shot”.

Then he waits another day before calling the cops.
Creepy ba$tard -should- be toast.

  3. MapleStreet says:

    I’ve already accidentally run across a YouTube trying to make a case that Newton was a false flag operation.
    Tying in with the more serious threads of late, part of the violence some apparently teach isn’t guns just to defend yourself, but guns to finish the person off. Even in stand your ground states, once the threat is removed, you can’t keep firing. But the MN case (and the people commenting on it) shows is that the guns aren’t to remove a threat, but to extract revenge.
    Of course, one of my relatives has in the last couple of days posted an article from wnd saying a clerk in Hawaii has a sworn statement that he was told there was no Obama birth certificate. Of course, he hasn’t worked for Hawaii since 2008. But that doesn’t stop the echo.
    And there’s a photo floating around facebook showing the faces of those the repubs have put in as the head of committeess (a bunch of old white men) and corresponding montage of those put in charge by the Dems (a diverse group).

  4. MapleStreet says:

    Ya mean like how civil the repubs are after an election? Like 8 years of “He’s not my president.” Like the still continuing slurs against Obama including the birthers?
    Or like the statements made about the N**gger when Obama made a statement on the Newton shootings?
    Seems everytime the Freepers call for civility it is only one way.
