And yes, it really is that simple.
This is one thing that really never ceases to amaze me.
A good portion of the GOP are extremely hypocritical.
"Don't tread of me" they say.
But you can sure as hell tell women, gays, pot smokers, and non Christians what they can or cannot do. Until they change these awful attitudes that lead into this hypocrisy and reach out to more Latinos, African Americans, and other minority groups, they will not be able to win another election. There just aren't enough christian men and women to make up for it.
The number of Latino's and young people that vote each election cycle will continue to increase, and the GOP better as hell figure out how to come to the middle more to appeal to these groups. Unfortunately, they're so tied to the evangelicals that it is going to be really tough.
But if you ask Fox News or its viewers, it was because Chris Christie said something nice about Obama, Hurricane Sandy helped the dirty liberals, and the dirty liberal media influenced viewers overwhelmingly by failing to criticize Obama.. ever. It had nothing to do with the lacking appeal to independents like myself, Latinos, African Americans, Women and other minority groups whatsoever right?
