In the report, the young Republican activists acknowledge their party has suffered significant damage in recent years. A sampling of the critique on:
Gay marriage: “On the ‘open-minded’ issue … [w]e will face serious difficulty so long as the issue of gay marriage remains on the table.”
Hispanics: “Latino voters … tend to think the GOP couldn’t care less about them.”
That's not true -- they ABSOLUTELY can care even less.
Perception of the party’s economic stance: “We’ve become the party that will pat you on your back when you make it, but won’t offer you a hand to help you get there.”
Well, 80 percent true, the GOP will give you a single specific finger.
Big reason for the image problem: The “outrageous statements made by errant Republican voices.”
i.e. A great deal of Republican voices.
Words that up-for-grabs voters associate with the GOP: “The responses were brutal: closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned.”
Why those kids today with their thinking, tolerance and IPads!
