Aw pipe down people.

Hillary only appeals to those who goosestep to a polling place and vote for anyTHING with a D beside it's name on a Ballot. She is plenty good enough to represent what pass for Democrats these days. IF it weren't for low standards they would have no standards at all.

Dems don't have to do a thing for Hillary. She is the most qualified candidate for the Presidency since.....well....EVER.

The GOP has no message, no plans and no connection to women, Hispanics, blacks, gays and the poor. They can't win a national election without tapping into those groups and making them believe they actually giveashit about anyone or anything other than winning their next election and solidifying their life long pensions.

but tapping into those groups would be pandering to them....those groups are the reason we are in the mess we are in, why would Rep's want to pander to them. I agree they can't win without doing it, but you gotta have standards, once you drop those, it's time to make exit plans.

Hurry and call the CIA/FBI/SS and let them know this huge revelation! I'm sure they never thought of photoshop or fake papers when investigating the presidents past. Yet, somehow, they deemed the Kenyan birth certificate a FAKE and in just one day!!!!!!!! I guess the Koch brothers didn't think that one out very well!

How do those G-men even put their pants on without your advice, Le Lame-o? lmao

Pander to women?
Are you kidding me?
We are 50% of this country.

I'm perfectly fine with
republitards not pandering
to us. We CLEARLY don't need
them. Have at it. I hope
you have a factory somewhere
pumping out ignorant, old,
white men somewhere because
that group is shrinking rapidly.
(We live longer, remember)?

PS: Inbred, our founding fathers and the Constitution say all men are created equal which of course, they knew was false at the time but in the past two centuries, Americans have worked to bring the Constitution up to par and actually make all men and women equal. It's taking time but we are getting there.

If you support ostracizing women from a political party, than you don't support the very foundation this country was built upon and it will mean the demise of the republican party.

Did you ever ask yourself how Republicans have not only lost black voters, but hispanics, Asian Americans, and college students in recent years as well? These groups do have some overlap and used to be more competitive in terms of GOP support until the last decade or so. The modern GOP has lost them (especially in presidential elections) and now women as well. Are GOP "standards" in this case simply a euphemism for repelling more voters than they attract ?

ok, I was wrong, remove 'women' from the list of groups that republicans should not pander to. Women are ok, as long as they don't try to play golf...women should not be allowed on golf courses during daylight hours.

but the rest of those groups, take more than they contribute, thus they are part of the problem. I'd rather go down in flames than to pander to the very people that are the problem. Finally, the non taxpayers outvote and outnumber the taxpayers, so we're gonna see how good Hillary and the Dems are...how they can keep the balls in the air with more wagon riders than wagon pullers.

Asian Americans are generally more affluent and better educated than most whites and college educated whites are more likely to be more affluent than non college educated whites as well. More and more blacks and hispanics are getting degress and these groups combined with other Democratic party constituents will outnumber the GOP (guess the GOP has to eventually get used to winning rural house seats in the future).

yeah, but those Asians run dry cleaners and restaurants, and don't put the cash they take in on the books, thus avoiding paying taxes on a large percentage of their income.

As if whites aren't guilty of not paying taxes? I'd bet that a good many of the white Tea Party types and other conservative lobbyists are always looking for ways to cheat the system of revenue (especially the very rich who have average Americans pay off their debts via corporate welfare and tax cuts). I get the impression that you basically only give moral high ground and respect to whites alone (all those years of living in the segregated south I guess-fits the white conservative southern stereotype that we in the north have).

yes, you brilliant Yankees in the north have it so much better....nice weather, nice cities like Dee-troit, factories and jobs, but sooner or later, you all want to come down here to live. You can always tell a yankee, but you can never tell him much.

I'm sure more than a few Confederate generals like Lee, Johnston and Hood similarly underestimated the likes of Grant, Sherman and Meade too - seems they were merely Yankee visitors that had a few surprises of their own in store for their arrogant hosts.

yeah, and when the war was over, those soldiers and their generals went home and told the rest of the Yankees how nice it was down here, and they been flocking here ever since....you cant get rid of them....they drive 40 in the left lane, with their left blinker on for 40 miles, in their buicks, with their sandals and black knee length socks, white patent leather belts, Bermuda shorts, looking for the early bird special. like they say in Florida, it's easier to pick Yankees than it is oranges.
