Reince Priebus to Latinos: the GOP has changed (Loser alert!)
The Washington Times ^ | June 30, 2013 | Jennifer Harper

Posted on 07/01/2013 8:46:37 AM PDT by Timber Rattler

The Grand Old Party has changed. No really. That was the earnest message from Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who took his claim to the annual National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference, which ended Sunday in Chicago.

Republicans have “reshaped” their outreach, Mr. Priebus told the group, which represents some 6,000 officials. Republicans get community; they get neighborhoods and churches. They get immigration and educational reform plus economic opportunity. “In America, it doesn’t matter where you come from; it matters where you’re going,” Mr. Priebus noted.

How embarrassing: Priebus tells Latinos, “The GOP has changed.”

"This embarrassing RNC leader just accepted an unchallenged critique as truth and then proceeded to flog himself."

It’s funny that there are Freepers who resist the idea of a third party, and insist that “we must reclaim the Republican Party”. That will never happen. The Republican Party has become the twin of the Democrat party. We’d have as much luck reclaiming the Democrat party as the Republican.

I agree that the GOP has changed, but in a way they might not be too proud of — a bunch of liars and flip-floppers who cannot be trusted to fulfill the platform promises they ran on.

No wonder Priebus & Party are having such difficulty with donors.

The GOP is now redundant. I routine throw ALL requests for contributions to the RNC in the wastebasket. I want a THIRD Party!

When they call and ask for money I tell them I am no longer a Republican and when they ask what my affiliation is I tell them I’m now a Monarchist.

His state mate, Paul Ryan, has sure swallowed Priebus’ Party line.

Reincey boy, they don’t give a chit what you do—they won’t be voting GOP, even if some do, they certainly won’t replace the base that GOP-e are destroying. Buh bye, GOP-e!

Reince Who?

I hear less from this guy than I do my own US Congressman.

And when I do hear him, he's bemoaning the base of his own party!

I can’t stand that lilly livered Priebus. The GOP have to be the stupidest bunch on the planet next to the low info voters. How can anyone be so stupid as to ignore the facts that it was the WHITES that didn’t turn out in 2012. You just can’t get any more stupid than Rubio, McCain, Priebus, Jeb etc. All the liberal dems masquerading as Republicans

Now we have two ‘buy votes with favors’ parties!

Oh happy day!

No one will have to work! Everything will be taken from the ‘rich’ (by force) and given to the voters! Free!

Oh happy day!

Don’t worry, if we get a third party, well still -in effect - still have a two-party system, as the GOP has become “Democrat II”

Reince Priebus’ job is to keep the money flowing into the Party coffers. The country club types want cheap labor. They want amnesty.

Generally speaking they don't want the indigenous minority kids because they have no work ethic and are all but unemployable. And, as long as the government hands them money and cell phones, there is very little liklihood these minority kids will ever learn even basic life skills because it is so much easier to hang out than to participate.

The conservatives in the R party never changed and didn’t need to. Conservatives have always been for opportunity. It appears Priebus and some GOP leaders are disparaging conservatives. It also seems Priebus is openly claiming that abandoning the rule of law and importing millions of low ability workers is somehow compatible with opportunity for success. It is the opposite, of course, and Priebus also seems oblivious to the fact that none of these millions will ever vote for his party. It is painful to watch someone fail a verbal IQ test—but RP just did.

I have yet to hear an explanation for how amnesty will supply large numbers of cheap workers. Once “out of the shadows”, these workers will be subject to the same wage and tax rules that apply to legitimate citizens. Not only that, but they will be poorly qualified to work for the legal wage, further limiting their employability. They will face the choice of remaining “off the books” workers or will find no jobs.

We can reclaim it if we primary each an every RINO out of office.

A third party will do nothing but split R votes and ensure a Dem won each and every time.

Perhaps Pee Wee Priebus should just jump up on the table, grab his unit and dance.

A third party will do nothing but split R votes and ensure a Dem won each and every time.

This where the GOP has gone too far. Through the 2012 election, I was a believer in the 2-party system and said the same things you are saying about "splitting the vote", and how "a vote for the 3rd party candidate is a vote for the democrat". I enthusiastically supported Romney/Ryan by voting and contributing. What has changed? We have seen such brazen betrayal by lying Republicans that I no longer trust them. One of the guys on the 2012 ticket (Ryan) is in full-Rubio mode now!

The GOP used to count on conservatives like me choosing RINOS as the "lesser of 2 evils". However, they can no longer count on such a vote for me. The amount of difference between the two evils is not enough to matter any more. Now instead of saying "a vote for a 3rd party candidate is a vote for the democrat", I say "a vote for RINO is the same as a vote for the democrat". I am no longer frightened about voting 3rd party. If we get more dems than RINOs, it matters little to me. The RINOs in the GOP have overplayed their hand.
