Romney defeat = White defeat. Get it?
Yet another chorus of demands that the Republican Party be run for the benefit of various minorities and their self-appointed agents has been orchestrated at The Christian Science Monitor, illustrated by the above picture to drive home the point that this is about dispossessing whites: Rebuilding the GOP: Can Republicans pitch a bigger tent? By Husna Haq November 21, 2012
Representative of the intellectual quality of this profoundly unoriginal piece are extensive quotations from one John Hudak of the left-leaning Brookings Institute, who is apparently deeply concerned to help the GOP:
Another leader the GOP can turn to for guidance? George W. Bush, who won 44 percent of the Latino vote in 2004, Hudak says.
"Oddly, their path to success with Latinos is to do what George W. Bush did. They have to ask themselves, 'What would George do?' "
This is the George Bush who cost the GOP its House and Senate majorities in 2006
Of course Bush did not win 44% in 2004 as James Fulford pointed out before the election in USA TODAY Hispanic Hype Revives "Bush Got 44 Percent" Myth and Steve Sailer wearily noted in The Undying Myth Of Bush's 44% Of The Hispanic Vote afterwards.
But Hudak can be excused ignorance because he has a brilliant new idea:
"A well-reinvented Republican Party has to be the party of fiscal responsibility and fiscal pragmatism, and it needs to get away from social issues entirely.... Brand yourself as an economic policy party and you do well.
HUH? Romney caved on Amnesty, wimped out on Chick-fil-A, never challenged Obama’s racial socialism, exclusively mumbled about economic issues – and lost. Team Romney followed Hudak’s plan. It was a disaster.
What Hudak is really saying, of course, is that the interests and concerns of the Republican rank and file should be excluded from American political life.
Tell John Hudak to mind his own business – and learn some facts.
One sensible element only appeared in this paean of Minority triumphalism:
"We wanted a fighter like Ronald Reagan who boldly championed America's founding principles," Tea Party Patriots cofounder Jenny Beth Martin told The Dallas Morning News shortly after the election. "What we got was a weak, moderate candidate, handpicked by the Beltway elites and country club establishment."
So who is Husna Haq, author of the Christian Science Monitor piece above, anyway?
Her LinkedIn entry says she was a “founding member of the Islamic Monthly”
