About That 'Permanent Democratic Majority' (Tokyo Rove Pimps Amnesty...)
Wall Street Journal ^ | 1/30/13 | Karl Rove

Many are arguing these days that President Obama has forged a new majority coalition of women, minorities, young people and upscale cultural liberals so large and durable that he can do what no president has done before—pursue a very liberal agenda without serious opposition or defections from his own party. Demography is destiny, this argument holds, and it is irrevocably on the side of Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party.

Republicans have a perception problem with Hispanics, but the GOP earned 44% of Hispanic votes in 2004 and can do so again with the right policies, many more Hispanic candidates and better messaging.

The major impediment is the harsh rhetoric of some Republicans regarding immigration. The solution is less about policy than about respect for the Hispanic community. If federal immigration law is reformed with substantial Republican support—including for a long and demanding but achievable process of earning legal status—the GOP can consistently earn 35%-40% among Hispanics.

GWB’s policy of non-enforcement of immigration laws has been disastrous for the country. As far as I’m concerned, he’s near the top of the list of worst Republican presidents.

pssst, Republicans...they’re just not that into you. Giving illegal aliens amnesty won’t change that.

30 million illegals will mean some 50 more democrats in congress.

I believe that’s what you call a political extermination of conservatism.

Right, Karl, and we can get more of the black vote with black candidates. It worked really well with Allen West. /s

Bingo. And I got to see the effects of those policies up close and personal.

Once they flip Texas to blue, it’s all over.
Amnesty will likely get them there.

That's the #1 goal of the Democrats as well as the Northeast-DC RINO GOP-e establishment. Take down Texas.

And think about the hundreds of millions of dollars that his “SuperPac” wasted. How much of that did he pocket in “consulting fees”?

And in 5 years or so, when the economy goes to the toilet, the ‘former illegals’ will start suing the U.S. (for legalizing them and deceiving them about their real economic prospects).

Thanks jimbo123.
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
