The "you can't woo the minority" spin is a reversal of what is really going on: The Democratic Party has a white people problem. They're having issues wooing many whites, especially on a regular basis. Their politics are alienating to the majority.
Perhaps less race baiting and confiscatory economics may help remedy this situation? Radicalization of hostile identity voter blocs is undoubtedly partly why Obama bled votes this time around. You can't claim to be a "post-racial uniter" and pull that kind of political game, trotting out a bunch of identity voters onto the stage at the DNC. Ridiculous.
This is rather laughable. What you call race baiting, I call appealing to your constituency. "White male" is a numerical minority to "not White Male". It's not the fault of the Democrats that the Republicans are unable to appeal to more than one demographic at a time.
