“Republicans endorse immigration reform, plan minority outreach in post-election report”

All part of the “re-branding.”

— Which, should they be interested, I can help them with:  just be true to yourselves and go with “Democrat”.

Oh, and what this likewise signals?  Is that they’ll be telling us it’s Jeb Bush / Chris Christie in 2016.  Inevitable.

Turn out the lights.  The Party’s over.

  1. When voters abandon the GOP in droves come 2014 midterms, the GOP will go full proggtard. Then the party will be over. Thank God.

  2. Turn out the lights. The Party’s over.

    They say that all good things must end.

    But the Republican Party is no longer a good thing.

    To hell with it.

  3. The 2010 Tea Party tsunami was the GOP’s last hurrah. They took this gift and spit in the giver’s eye. They told us who they were and would always be. So be it.

  4. Republican Party somehow shits in own mouth and jumps off of political bridge to a watery abyss of meaninglessness, furiously masturbating the whole way down . Slow motion highlights on youtube.

  5. What was the “opposition” party in the Weimar elections in the early 1930s?

  6. This is what happens when you don’t regularly cull the incumbent herd.

  7. Which one McG? You mean the commies, perhaps? heh.

  8. I can’t help thinking there must have been a “we’ll exterminate the Jews more slowly” party…

  9. Now you’re talking about the French.

  10. The RNC should host quarterly discussions on youth issues with Chairman Priebus, a leading GOP youth surrogate or elected of?cial and young voters.

    there’s definitely some exciting changes coming

    but is it too little too late?

  11. National Soros Radio has a helpful summary of today’s report

    If Republicans hope to recapture the White House in the foreseeable future, they basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.

    That’s one central conclusion of a Republican National Committee report officially released Monday that offers the party a way forward after its 2012 failure to defeat President Obama, who was long seen as vulnerable because of a relatively high jobless rate and uninspiring economic growth.

  12. Ima get the lights on my way over to the small l libertarian camp.

  13. “they basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.”

    ok. baracky hussein obama: baby killer

    demonrats suck elitist cock

  14. ““they basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.”

    next tea party rally in front trumka’s house

  15. If Republicans hope to recapture the White House in the foreseeable future, they basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.

    There’s an old saying about giving the people a choice between a “Democrat” and a Democrat.

  16. “they basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.”

    we need some kkk plants at the next koskids gig asking about bobby byrd et al demonrats

  17. how about some class warfare on gov’t “workers” and big edu?

  18. Ari Fleischer and a top Jeb adviser were in charge of this? What, they couldn’t find Steve Schmidt’s phone number? Was Kay Bailey Hutchinson busy?

  19. did you know?

    “In focus groups and meetings around the country, Priebus said, he learned that the Mitt Romney phrase “self-deportation” was the biggest turn-off for Hispanics. He called it a terrible “unforced error,” saying, “It was the most hurtful thing in the country [for] Hispanics.””

    not wetback?

  20. The only thing more stupid than pandering is telling people you are going to pander to them because that’s what you need to do to win.

    How do any of these people have jobs?

  21. Priebus has done damage in the course of perhaps half an hour which it will take years to undo, so gifted is he as a marketing genius.

  22. Ari Fleischer and a top Jeb adviser were in charge of this? What, they couldn’t find Steve Schmidt’s phone number? Was Kay Bailey Hutchinson busy?

    Lincoln Chafee, call your office!

  23. bring out the big guns

    lamar alexander!!11!!

  24. Sadly, Chafee is kinda busy being my governor.

  25. “Jeff G. says March 18, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    How did “Binders full of women” become a thing that adults would repeat as if it were some sort of a damning charge ?

    How did Rubio taking a sip become an excuse to ignore his speech and label him a boob who had tossed his career away? Bullshit talks at the same value that money used to. Meaning walks. We are not a country anymore. We are a DEVO video come to lurching swaying life.

    General Boy learns how it is.

  27. caucuses are stupid I hate them they’re an ungodly timesuck and a weirdo magnet

  28. self-deportation sounds dirty

  29. Belize is advertizing their promotion of freedom on the radio. They see themselves as a nation willing to act as a means of escape from tyranny.

  30. self-deportation sounds dirty

    how about self-help?

  31. The establishment wants to buy the primary season momentum, now, and squeeze out upstarts. Fine. Do away with caucuses.

    Then we’ll finally get a viable third party, and we can get to work on burying the GOP and taking its place.

  32. i doubt they can actually get rid of caucuses

    i’d be shocked

  33. well maybe not shocked shocked

  34. Washington is sick. I recommend a death panel be assembled.

  35. Caucuses run just fine when you’re not gaming the rules to make sure that one-legged, tri-racial bisexual vegan bestialists are represented equitably.

  36. Well a former friend of mine just went full angry lefty rage-tard on the phone with me and after two warnings I sighed told him that I was sick of his shit, hadn’t enjoyed his company for quite some time, didn’t feel much genuine respect for him any more, was tired of being polite in the face such utterly stupid bullshit, and that we are no longer friends. Then I hung up and blocked his number. The funny thing is I didn’t yell. I sighed a few times. And fuck me, but it felt pretty good.

  37. Hell, I’d rather get rid of open primaries than get rid of caucuses.

  38. Getting rid of open primaries ranks higher on my list than repealing the 17th Amendment.

    But not the 16th. And if the 18th hadn’t already been repealed…

  39. The Gentry GOP likes open primaries because they let Democrats choose the candidates for both parties. That way they know they’ll get the sort of GOP candidates they really want.

  40. Not so fast there Mr Quick (always wanted to say that ;)

    Open primaries get us the sorts that draw brief media applause and close second place finishes.
    So there!

  41. hey basically need to sound and campaign more like Democrats.

    If only that meant treating your political opponent as sworn enemy of all you hold dear and fighting the campaign as if your very existence depended on winning then that quote might be okay. But knowing their intent that would never be the case.

  42. My refusal letter back to a membership renewal request.

    Dear Sir,

    “House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Sunday that he would be open to ramming through bills without the support of a majority of his own Republican caucus. Not just on small bills. On issues like immigration and gun control, McCarthy said, he’d be open to taking rogue Republicans across the aisle to work with Democrats.”

    It would seem that people like myself are no longer welcome in the Republican Party and intensely hated by the Democrats. So I see no way forward for me and mine in this political system any more.
