Republicans Fear Clinton in 2016
HOLLYWOOD Republican leaders plotted their partys political comeback on Thursday with plans to court minority voters and modernize their political operations. But some wondered if one person could make it all for naught: Hillary Clinton.
As attendees of the Republican National Committees spring meeting debated party rules and a refurbished GOP brand capable of winning back the White House, more than two dozen operatives and officials expressed worry that none of their partys potential 2016 candidates can take her down.
One early primary state RNC member put it simply:If she gets in, were toast.
Were hoping she doesnt run, because if she does, shell win, said the same operative.
Overhearing discussions about Clinton in the hallway outside the RNC meeting, Jorge Landivar, a Ron Paul-backing delegate to the 2012 Republican convention from Texas, chimed in:All the polls say she will destroy anyone that we put up its [f---ng] terrifying. National polling from Quinnipiac University finds that Clinton, the most popular national political figure, would defeat New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 45 37 percent; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio 50 34 percent and Rep. Paul Ryan 50 38 percent.
Ron Kaufman, the RNC committeeman from Massachusetts and a senior Romney campaign advisor, acknowledged that Clinton looks as powerful as a sitting president.
One state chair described the GOPs annual meeting as less about winning and more about fighting to remain a credible alternative to the Democratic Party.We cant even think about winning until we stop losing voters every cycle, he said.
And one former Romney aide here warned that grassroots activists pushing for an even more conservative GOP identity could seal the partys fate:If we listen to some of the people here and come back with a hardline conservative in 2016, shell wipe the floor with us.
(Yes, she will. lol)

In his fifth term now, McConnell has an approval rating in Kentucky of 36 percent. Silent but sullen, most of his own party doesn't really like him. The state's Democrats, who still control the governorship and the lower house, positively despise the man.
DITCH MITCH and the party of no/teabaggers!!
