WASHINGTON (AP)— The Republican Party, having lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, confronts a dilemma that's easier to describe than to solve: How can it broaden its appeal to up-for-grabs voters without alienating its conservative base?
There's no consensus yet on how to do it. With the next election three years away, Republicans are tiptoeing around policy changes even as they size up potential candidates who range from tea party heroes to pragmatic governors in Republican- and Democratic-leaning states.
There's a partial road map, but it's more than two decades old, and the other party drafted it. Democrats, sick of losing elections and being tagged as out-of-touch liberals, moved their party toward the center and rallied behind Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton in 1992.
Strategists in both parties say Clinton's achievement, however impressive, may look modest compared to what a Republican leader must do to construct a new winning formula, given the nation's changing demographics.
"Our challenge was to get voters back," said Al From, a chief architect of Clinton's political rise. "Their challenge is harder: get voters to come into a new coalition."
That will be complicated, From said, because the Republicans' conservative base "is more demanding and more important" than the Democrats' liberal base.
An array of Republican campaign veterans agree. They say the party's loyal base of conservative activists — including evangelical Christians, anti-tax crusaders and anti-abortion advocates — is too big, ideological and vital to be treated with anything but great care and respect. Republicans will go nowhere if they lose a hard-core conservative every time they pick up a new unaligned voter with a more moderate message.

Clinton won by only 43% in 1992, boner.

<quoted text> Really! Why would I think the 1st black president is a threat? The bigger question is,"why you would think so?
You people are the only people on the planet that believes Clinton getting brains really means something. I'm quite sure you've had yours done a few times also.
I wouldn't expect you to think black presidents are a threat, but I do expect you to realize THIS black president IS.

It wasn't the blow-job (that is what you were talking about, right?), it was his lying to America, Congress AND the Federal Grand Jury, that does matter. Obama learned from Clinton, he employs 'ignorance of the fact', rather than chance being proved a liar. Ignorance of the law does not excuse, but ignorance of the fact, does.

There's this thing called the Internet. It's loaded with all kinds of facts and information.
Then there's a whole bunch of news sources and weather channels. You'd be surprised what you can learn. You just have to turn on the TV.
But you can always fact check anything. I try to provide enough credible and neutral sources for you to do that.
Mostly, I'm just passing on information that's out there and can be easily researched.

The facts, ma'am...just the facts.
Really??

Funny how you never admit to Bush's many scandals, but focus on a misdemeanor by a staffer of Bill Clinton, one that happened 10 years ago, no less.

So let's look at Bush's scandal record, just for fairness, eh??

We know how you love fairness, right Lorac?? Almost as much as you love cigarettes!!

Wanna compare Jack Abramoff to Sandy Berger?? Both committed crimes, but Abramoff went to prison for felonies. Berger got community service.

You expose yourself as a moron once again. No surprise there.

4. The Indian Gaming Scandal

The scandal: Potential influence peddling to the tune of $82 million, for starters. Jack Abramoff, a GOP lobbyist and major Bush fundraiser, and Michael Scanlon, a former aide to Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas), received that amount from several Indian tribes, while offering access to lawmakers. For instance, Texas’ Tigua tribe, which wanted its closed El Paso casino reopened, gave millions to the pair and $33,000 to Rep. Robert Ney (R-Ohio) in hopes of favorable legislation (Ney came up empty). And get this: The Tiguas were unaware that Abramoff, Scanlon and conservative activist Ralph Reed had earned millions lobbying to have the same casino shut in 2002.

The problem: Federal officials want to know if Abramoff and Scanlon provided real services for the $82 million, and if they broke laws while backing candidates in numerous Indian tribe elections.

The outcome: Former Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff was sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison on March 29, after pleading guilty to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials in a deal that requires him to cooperate in an investigation into his relationshps with members of Congress. Sources familiar with the federal probe have told The Post that half a dozen lawmakers are under scrutiny, along with Hill aides, former business associates and government officials.

The scandal prompted Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) and Rep. Robert Ney (R-Ohio) to give up their leadership posts, and on Oct. 13, 2006, Ney pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the scandal. On Jan. 19, 2007, Ney was sentenced to 30 months in prison for his role in the scandal. Two of Abramoff's former business partners have pleaded guilty. Three men have been arrested in the slaying of Gus Boulis, who sold Abramoff and partners a fleet of Florida casino ships in the fall of 2000. Another former Abramoff associate, David H. Safavian — most recently the top contracting official in the White House Office of Management and Budget — was convicted for lying about his dealings with Abramoff.

----------

Funny you'd trouble yourself over a minor misdemeanor, yet choose to ignore political influence peddling at the highest levels of the Republiclown Party. One that landed Abramoff and several others in prison, and was an embarassment not just for Bush, but displayed the corrupt nature of the entire Republiclown Party.

Of course, your being a hateful teabagger and demagogue wouldn't have anything to do with it now, would it??

Just the facts, maam.

Next we can discuss the Repugnant scandal concerning Terri Schiavo.

I'm sure a 'truth teller' like you will enjoy that sample of insanity from Bush, his brother, and many leading Republiclown Senators like Bill Frist.

What ever happened to Bill Frist?? HAHAHAHAHAHA
