The GOP Can't Reach Beyond Its Base Without Confronting Its Hucksters

A new RNC report frets about its inability to reach people who don't already identify as partisan Republicans.

Conor Friedersdorf
Mar 19 2013

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2...

The Republican National Committee is finally acknowledging what dissidents on the right have warned about for years: "We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people," a new report on reforming the GOP states, "but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue."

This isn't a problem that the national party can solve on its own. Conservative principles and Republican policy ideas mostly reach the rank and file via mass media. But Fox News, most talk-radio hosts, most right-leaning websites, and even donor-driven organizations with communications shops, like the Heritage Foundation, aren't just "preaching to the choir" out of stubbornness. It's their business strategy.

Surviving as an institution in the "telling conservatives what they want to hear" niche is a lot easier than doing so in the "attracting an ideologically diverse audience with quality content" niche. The part of the rank and file that watches Fox News, listens to Rush Limbaugh, or reads Breitbart.com as a primary information source doesn't demand content that would meet editorial standards at outlets like NPR or The New York Times, where the human tendency toward ideological bias is tempered by practices like addressing factual inaccuracies with corrections. Donors to the Heritage Foundation don't demand scholarship as rigorous as you find at Brookings.(cont.)

Lol Thank you. Yes some here really have a Hate thing for the one the accused you of being. But I`v not seen that poster on here for about a year. Though She may still be around posting stealth. You can rest assured that being compared to Her that former Poster is a high honor.
There is one poster here that claimed She came to her house. That Woman is a real hatched from an egg that was dropped off the Empire State Building. Paranoid is one description.
Because the Tit for Tat back then got pretty intense some times. And That former poster always knocked their Dk`s and Woozies in the dirt every time. She had more smarts than all of em , and it showed!
That is one reason they all hated her. Just like when Bonnie shows back up now and then. The Minute they see her it`s full tilt Attack Mode.
Oh no you can't be talking about Plainfield Mom! You said the poster was smart!

Can you please leave me out of your meth-enhanced fairy tales?

The Politics of Misperception

Ever wonder what our public discourse would be like if everyone agreed on the facts? You can keep wondering.

Garance Franke-Ruta Mar 20 2013

A lot of Americans don't know the precise details of how their country works. Here are three examples:

........

2. People think balancing the budget will lead to job growth. In fact, in the absence of strong economic growth or other sources of increased revenue, economists believe that dramatically cutting the federal budget enough to balance it would lead to job cuts and economic contraction in the short term. This is what we're seeing already with the much smaller cut of the sequester -- job cuts, pay cuts, furloughs, and so on. It's all expected to be a minor drag on the economy, clipping the rate of growth of a recovery that's just starting to heat up. But according to Politico, internal Republican polling shows that people believe cutting even more jobs by cutting the federal government by another order of magnitude will lead to more jobs, rather than more unemployment.(cont.)

Hey NTR.

Sad fact is, most of the fringers can't understand simple logic and actually want America to fail.

.....I'm not saying the Republican Party is full of bigots.
I'm saying history teaches us that the Republican Party is where white racists in the South turned for shelter in response to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the remnants of that migration is still impacting its image today.
I applaud the effort of the RNC's 98-page Growth and Opportunity Project report. But it's hard to characterize it as an honest assessment of the party when it doesn't include the words "racism," "racists" or "racist" in it. How can this so-called "autopsy" be accurate when it doesn't include the cause of death?

Listen here you political who-re. Most of us back then didn't know a liberal from a conservative, communism from capitalism. We just trusted our government. For you to use any connotation of a Vietnam Veteran to endorse any current political agenda is a disgrace.

Saddam's Revenge on America

It is precisely at this juncture where the ex post facto attempt to justify the 2003 invasion of Iraq collapses: If the strong presence of black-or-white, good-or-bad, friend-or-foe thinking in a political culture is grounds for sending in U.S. troops, then few countries require an invasion more urgently than the contemporary United States.

You are the epitome of what a hypocrite is. You get on here talking about the poor like you are ALL for them, yet you turn right around and talk DOWN to Conservatives, like "they" are dirt! And in comparing them to the poor. You have compassion for the poor, BUT you show NO compassion for the ones you accuse of being poor, out of the Conservatives. You ACT like you are the ONLY one to have EVER accomplished ANYTHING! You are NOT!

You are a walking, talking contradiction. I, myself can SEE that you are NOT the happy person you WANT to make people believe you to be. A happy person does NOT belittle someone like you DO me and ALL the others on a "daily" basis, just because they do NOT agree with your views. There IS something deeper seated going on with you here. A happy person goes on about their business and lets others DO the same. You do not do that.

You jump down their throat through NO Fault of theirs, as they are SIMPLY giving an opinion. IT just SIMPLY gets your goat and you can't STAND it, therefore you pounce. That IS your fault! NOT theirs! Therefore YOU start THE ACTION, that causes the Reaction you get. Thereby DRAWING first blood! THAT is "human nature" ... Where a person SHOWS class would be to NOT do that. YOU do NOT show ANY class by what you DO! I am GUILTY of doing THAT myself, but it goes against MY GRAIN to do that.

I have nipped at your heels TRYING to get you to BACKOFF in a gentle way. After today's comments I am going to give you the FULL BODY SLAM. You need to BACKOFF your climbing everyone's butt, especially MINE!

Because I am SOMEBODY! I am a good person. People look up to ME! People respect me in my REAL life. People like you would NOT even be in my presence in my real life. People like you ARE to be pitied!

That's RIGHT.

I PITY YOU!

IF I ever were to look Down my nose at someone, YOU would be the first one on my list. BUT that also goes against my grain. I'm not made that way. I try to explain my views and OPEN their eyes to WHY I feel that way, but you cut people off at the pass, PER SE, and TRY to FORCE them to see yours, without giving them a CHANCE to even air theirs!

Yes, I am being judgmental, in your WEAK eyes, but in my STRONG eyes, I am using discernment.

I am to the end of my patience and "tolerance" of letting you go any farther in your derogatory manner towards me, and the other GOOD people on this board. IF "I" continue allowing it to happen, it is the SAME as condoning your actions, and I do NOT approve of them in ANY WAY! I have bent over "backwards " holding my tongue over this, per se, my last time.

You are the head honcho in setting the tone on this board by your vile, evil, and ungodly actions.

I'm here TODAY to put a stop to it, and by informing you that Posi is correct in his little hints at what IS being worked on and done to STOP the damaging LIBEL by identifying who that person is ... in a LEGAL way. People like "you and your ilk" is who it "will be" USED on.

This is mt LAST WARNING to you! IF I have to do so again it will be too late for you to DO anything, as the damage will have been done. ALL I have to do is pick up the phone, make a call, and say do it and it will be done. Your IP's and your "socks" and lil goobers will be off the NET!
