Great post. I was worried about voter fraud even before the election. The “Rules for Radicals” ilk believe they are morally and intellectually superior to everyone else, thus justifying the idea cheating is OK. The ends justify the means because they know better. People are too stupid to govern themselves. The sad thing is, they might be correct, because no matter how many votes for Obama were fraudulent, there were millions of others that weren’t. The radicals have taken power.

Conservatives have been saying we need to “pull in” minorities, particularly Latinos. We have tried logic and reason, explained how the Conservative way is to empower the individual. But they just don’t get it. Because of the Liberal media, and Liberal propaganda coming from the Liberal politicians, Latinos instead believe Conservatives are racist and are not looking out for them. To a lesser extent, the same is true with women, and the “war on women,” that Conservatives want to take away their rights. We can hammer home the truth all day long, but they will never understand the truth. The only way to get through to them is to present a Conservative idea and package it in brown skin. While in and of itself, it is against what we truly believe, that we should judge someone on the content of their character and not the color of their skin, it is the ONLY way to get through to them. Obama got 71 percent of the Latino vote and 55 percent of the women vote. If Latinos see a white man on the ticket, the numbers will be the same. Period. We need to package Conservatism in brown skin. It’s the only way to win. We need to play their game to an extent. Marco Rubio needs to be the Republican nominee in 2016. His running made should be a woman, either Nikki Haley or Susana Martinez. Unfortunately it has come to this. But if we don’t “package” our ticket, we will lose again.
Agreed. This is unfortunately true. I would wager that you'll never again see two white males on the Dem ticket. We need to do the same. (Fortunately, we have more minority TALENT than they do. They have quantity, but we have quality).
"We have tried logic and reason, explained how the Conservative way is to empower the individual."
No we haven't. We've run candidates like Dole, Bush, McCain, and Romney, who have run on socialist records and socialist platforms. When someone like Ron Paul comes along with logic, reason, and empowerment of the individual, the GOP repudiates them. When you run big-government Republicans you often lose, but even when you win, you still lose.
GOP leadership is old fashioned in it's aproach to the electorate.
They overestimate the typical American's knowledge of and interest in politics and American history.
They underestimate just how many stupic, shallow people are voters who vote on emotion.
In 2012, we scrubbed out all the emotion and ran an election like an auditor for a CPA firm.

Colmes is nothing but a democrat hack, paid by the party to spew the dem talking points. Why Fox wastes air time with him is a mystery. I’m sure they could find another democrat who actually had intelligent things to say now and then.
