Democrats are Celebrating

The Republican Party seems to be living in another time when White conservative Americans were a majority and their beliefs dominated all others.

Their reference is the world of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, William F. Buckley and Barry Goldwater.

Today is a totally different time.  Large numbers of immigrants from non-White countries along with a more successful Black American society are the growing population.  The population of Hispanics has become equal to the population of Whites in the most heavily populated state in the union.

The Huffington Post reports Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, speaking more than a year after he lost to President Barack Obama, acknowledged Friday that his campaign failed to attract minority voters.

“The place that my campaign and I fell short was probably in being able to speak openly and effectively to minority populations. We didn’t get as many African-American voters as we should have, didn’t get as many Hispanic voters as we should have,” he said on “CBS This Morning.” “Across the board, we need to do a better job explaining why it is that our policies will lead to higher wages, better health care, better schools.”

Perhaps Mitt Romney does understand the need to change now.  However his comments about the 47% will dog him for the rest of his life.

The Tea Party agenda is in opposition to the changes the GOP needs to make in order to win elections in the multi-cultural society of 2013 and beyond.
