Republicans Vow Outreach To Minorities

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (UPI) — Republican leaders at the annual House GOP’s issues conference held in Williamsburg, Va., said they are pledging to expand their reach to minorities and women.

Representative Greg Walden (R-Ore.), the new chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, repeated the vow again Thursday.

“It’s an important priority for me as a chairman and for our committee as a whole,” he told reporters during the conference.

The Hill said Hispanics supported President Barack Obama over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the 2012 election by a margin of 71 percent to 27 percent.

Obama won the women’s vote, 55 percent to 44 percent, The Hill reported.

Walden said Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) would spearhead an effort to reach out to women and that two other Congressional Republicans would do the same for Native Americans.

“We will be building out, further and deeper, into the minority communities,” he said. “We recognize that Republicans have good answers, we just have bad communications in many cases.”

    What’s the GOP gonna do, kow tow to minorities? Give them special treatment because they are minorities? Do as the Democrats do, view them as different from white? Why the hell doesn’t the GOP just merge with the Democrats? They are becoming just as bad. You can’t tell the two parties apart anymore. Just a bunch of scumbags.

    • eddie47d

      “Will do the same for the Native Americans”. LOL! Doesn’t matter which party the Native Americans are always at the bottom of the totem pole. Gambling might be an exception but most (very few individuals) of them became wealthy because of white investors.

    • Steve E

      The GOP will have to water down their views of the Constitution in order to take in more minorities and Hispanics. They will also have to enable more handouts to them also. That’s why most minorities, Hispanics and some women vote for Democrats. So, the GOP should merge with the Democrats if they do that. This will make the Libertarian party stranger in the end.

      • momo

        The GOP and the Democrats have already merged, now they just argue over who’s going to run things. The GOP is the “loyal” opposition.

        1/22/13, I’m not an alarmist but I predicted sometime in my life, from here on, I’d see civil unrest over this imperious regime. This summer could be it, as much as I dread the thought. Minorities, especially blacks may wax big about freedom & opportunity but gravitate to tyrants nonetheless. This president makes no pretense about rule by exec fiat; he’s got nothing to lose.

    • Chuck S

      They’re not doing a very good job of reaching out to middle class white guys or anybody else. They should be having media event to educate people. Like to explain how Obama is killing jobs with taxes and regulations. A d how people having guns prevents crime.

      Having said that, they could push for school choice, so minorities could get their kids out of very bad, very liberal schools. W. Bush said he was for it in 2000, but he backed off and let Ted Kennedy write his education bill. They could also explain how the Keystone XL pipeline and more drilling will help keep oil prices down and help business make more jobs. Maybe also how Warren Buffet is making billions shipping oil by his railroad because the pipeline is delayed.

      • Chuck S

        Also help law-abiding minorities use guns to defend themselves from the criminals. Generally do real crime-reducing measures. Newt Gingrich urged measures to encourage entrepreneurship by minorities.

    • DavidL

      You mean American citizens and voters who happen to be minority? You call it “kow tow” while the democratic party understands that it is “representing the interests and needs of their constituencies.”

    • Robert Smith

      Harold asks: “What’s the GOP gonna do, kow tow to minorities?”

      Well… Isn’t that what America is about? It’s a mixing bowl. Those who forget that aren’t representing America.

        THE GOP’S MUST PUT STUPITY BEHIND THEM. THIS IS ABOUT WINNING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN 2016. YOU HAVE A SUPERPOWER, OBAMA THAT YOU HAVE TO CONTEND WITH. THE GOP’S MUST LEARN TO PLAY THE POLITICAL GAME. THERE ARE MANY THAT DO NOT WANT THE GOP’S TO THINK OUT SIDE OF THE BOX INCLUDING BLACK PUBLICIANS. AMERICA IS UNDER ATTACK, YOU ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE OF EVER WINNING ANOTHER ELECTION. IT IS BAD ENOUGH TO ENDURE 4 MORE YEARS OF OBAMA , BUT YOU HAVE TO CHANGE AND BE ALL INCLUSIVE. GIVE THE BLACKS WHAT THEY WANT. NO BLACK DEMOCRATE IS COMING TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE ANGRY WITH OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATES. THE DEMOCRATES WILL JUST FIND ANOTHER WAY TO KEEP THEIR GRIP ON BLACK VOTERS. ONCE THE DEMOCRATES GRIP IS LOOSEN OFF OF BLACK VOTERS THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO BE DONE. THE DEMS KNOW THAT THE GOP’S DO NOT WAVER FROM THEIR AGENDA. THEY HAVE STUDIED THE GOP’S TO A SCIENCE. THE DEMS ARE NOT ABOVE LYING TO GET THEIR VOTES. THEY WILL USE EVERY UNDER HANDED LOW-LIFE TRICK IN THE BOOKS TO HOLD ON TO BLACK VOTES. ROMNEY LOST BECAUSE HE MISTAKENLY THOUGHT BECAUSE THE BLACKS WERE ANGRY WITH OBAMA , THEY WOULD AUTOMATICALLY VOTE FOR THE GOP’S. THE GOP’S GOT SLOPPY AND STARTED TO CHECKED THE POLLING BOOTHS, CALLING OBAMA A MUSLIN, ASKING FOR HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATES. THE DEM’S AND THE MEDIA USED IT AGAINST ROMNEY AS A WEAPON. MOST BLACK GOP’S ARE FAR TOO CONSERVATIVE TO STEER BLACK VOTERS TO THE GOP’S. MOST BLACK GOP’S HAVE NO CONCEPTS OF HOW OTHER BLACK LIVES , WHAT THEIR GOAL OR ASPIRATIONS ARE. THEY JUST HAVE AN UNCLE TOM TYPE OF MESSAGE THAT IS JUST NOT GOING TO GET IT. TAVIS SMILEY A DEMOCRATE , IS WELL AWARE OF HOW OBAMA HAS MANIPULATED AFRICANS AMERICANS. REPUBLICANS LIKE 50 CENTS HAVE A VOICE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITIES. THE GOP’S CAN NO LONGER HAVE A ALL WHITE PLATFORM AND A ALL WHITE AGENDA. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS MOVED AWAY FROM THE PARTY OF LINCOLN, AND THE PARTY OF MLK. THE DEMOCRATES ARE SO GOOD IN THEIR METHODS THAT THEY WERE ABLED TO MAKE BLACK AMERICANS GIVE UP GOD. LISTENING TO THE EMOTIONAL, TRADITIONAL VOTERS WILL HELP YOU LOSE THE ELECTION. HOW MANY PROMISES DID OBAMA KEEP, THAT HE TOLD THE VOTERS THAT HE WOULD. NONE. NOW OBAMA HAS USED LINCOLN AND MLK, IN HIS SPEECH. YOU CAN USE THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE BOTH REPUBLICANS. BUT OTHER REPUBLICANS ASKING YOU WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NON OF THEIR BUSINESS, YOU ARE DOING YOUR JOB. YOUR JOB IS TO WIN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. I RECIEVE SO MANY EMAILS FROM THEV GOP’S AND EVERY THING SOUNDS LIKE A BUNCH OF WEAK PUSSY’S. THEY SOUND LIKE SNITCHES, AND DOOM-DAY THEORIST, THAT NOT GOING TO WIN VOTERS. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CARROT SO TASTY, THAT THE RABBIT WILL RISK HIS LIFE TO GET IT.

  • ibcamn

    Hey,what part of the country they talking about and whom?!when my daughter and i lived in southern California,we were the minority!!that’s right,white people!ha ha ha,can you believe that?a white guy and his girl were!we would get put to bottom of list at county clinic,took forever to get waited on or even served at a fast food joint!i couldn’t even send her to a public school anymore because she was picked on and constantly molested by the mexican and black boys and outcast by the girls because she was blonde and blue eyed!!so,who you talking about?!and where in the United States?!GOP’s needs to think before they jump!

    • phoenix

      you’re waking up. good job :)

  • Warrior

    All this means is we will have the other half of the equation promoting more “comprehensive” policies. I think it is time for real “change”.

    • Chuck S

      Another word for “comprehensive” could be “totalitarian.”

  • Don the britton

    What can the Republicans give to the ninety percent of Blacks that receive most if not all of their income from government? They do not want a job when they can make the equivalent to $60,000 per year by simply complaining and watching reality tv. The only thing that will motivate these people is to make them unconfortable in their current situation and the Republicans do not have the balls to do that. Their only hope is to educate the blacks that the Dems are the people that were the KKK and passed the racial laws and the people that continues to stand in their way to real equality.

    • alpha-lemming

      You beat me to the punch.

      Hmmmm…. work for a living?? be given a living?? work for a living?? be given a living??
      Self sufficiency and personal responsibility is for suckahs.

  • Corsica

    Why would Republicans have to “reach out” to minorities? Are they independent, autonomous enclaves in this country whose demands better be met or else? And everyone knows that there hasn’t been a legal immigrant from Central and South America since the mid-80′s with all the amnesties given in the last 20 + years. So they certainly are going to vote (with their false documents) for the apologists and enablers.

    • Chester

      So those people who came here for sanctuary are now ILLEGAL immigrants, simply because they didn’t spend ten to twenty years waiting for their paperwork to be approved? They came here because they actually feared, legitimately, being killed in their home countries. I am not talking about the simple fear of starvation that quite a number of people face every day, but the fear that their personal beliefs would draw the attention of those who do not like anyone who doesn’t think like them. Sounds kind of like our good Republican party,doesn’t it?

      Why would Republicans have to “reach out” to minorities?

      Because with the demographic trends, the minorities will soon become the majority.

      • Kate8

        Yes, because the democrats made sure of it.

        Since LBJ in 1965, they’ve been bringing in 100,000 mostly third-world immigrants into America every month of every year, and still are. And that’s only the legal ones.

        I’ll leave it to you guys to calculate the numbers, but what it spells is doom for the hard-working Americans who brought this country to greatness. The proof is self-evident of what this multi-cultural debacle has been about.

        We can kiss our country good-bye, folks. Our treasonous politicians have given it all away, right under our noses. Very soon we will be removed from our own land.

    Republicans Vow Outreach To Minorities Ahhh Bovine Scatterings I do not believe this for a minute The GOP and RNC are made up of a bunch of country blue bloods and RINOs. Romney was their latest loser candidate for over 40 years they stated they need to do a better job of reaching out to the so-called minorities and for the 40 years they get a F-

  • http://www.personalliberty.com myopinion

    America is a white nation, minorites have come here for a better life, instead they are replacing americans as #one, why should we pander to them, they should be glad for the chance to partake in our bounty, but remember ,citizenship is NOT citizens, and now minorites are running this country, from mayors to president, this is a grave injustice to the american people, who fought and died to keep us free, to trample on their graves and demand their rights, theyn have no rights in our land but to keep the laws and not demand special privilages. God created all races and gave all races their own countrys, it’s time we lay down no longer and be run over by our own government, to take away our rights as a free nation and self governing people. They must take on our way of life or GO Back where they came from

      Whoa there Mr. myopinion;
      You can’t celebrate your heritage as a white man, only non-whites can celebrate their heritage. If you try that you are obviously a white supremist and a racist.
      It doesn’t matter that white people owned, ran and built this country up to a world power financially, millitarily and morally, because there were a few non-whites that helped too. Anyway, anybody can come here now and vote – especially if you’re not white – because you don’t even need ID to vote. Besides asking for ID from the poor little non-whites is discrimination and you’re bad for demanding it, racist!
      And don’t try and bring your history into this, that’s history.Besides history can be changed to whatever people want it to be, so there!
      The lord and master Obama is in charge now and he’ll make sure you get yours whitey! So why don’t you just leave and go somewhere else, this is not your country anymore, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah!
      Oh and take your stupid guns and old fashioned constitutional ideas with you when you go, we don’t need them anymore, we’ve got the democrats and the republicans !Loser.

  • Chester

    myopinion, WHITE people came here as minorities seeking a better life, like it or not, and they seem to have changed the whole face of this nation so that it actually resembles nothing that came before. It has similarities to a lot of things, but is exactly none of them, because the minorities HAVE worked their changes on it. Did you ever hear the old saying, grow or die, usually referring to businesses? It doesn’t necessarily mean get larger, but grow in what it represents itself as being. Each group of immigrants brings something new to this country, and changes it by doing so, yet people like you would deny that change as something to be feared. It may need a bit of guidance, but change IS going to happen, or we as a nation ARE going to die.

    • John Woodbury

      Chester, I would like to say a few things to you, but my post would be pulled. So let once again say we are not talking LEGAL immigration, we talking illegal from the get go. NO other country in the world would allow you to go into it without proper paper work. Some would kill you, some would make you wish you were dead, but none is a stupid as our ultra liberal election machine.

  • http://yahoo.COM ANNIE HALL

    IT IS SO SAD THAT WHITE AMERICA IS IN DENIAL. THE POOREST OF POOR AMERICANS ARE WHITE AMERICANS. BUT THEY CONTINUE TO STAY IN THE CLOSETS. THE MEDIA PAINTS A PICTURE OF WHITE AMERICANS BEING RICH , SUCESSFUL, AND WEALTHY ALL THE TIME HIDING POOR WHITE AMERICANS. THERE IS NO SHAME , OR DISGRACE BEING WHITE AND POOR. THE DEM, ARE THE WHITES THAT DO NOT WANT TO HAVE ANY ASSOCIATIONS WITH THEIR POOR WHITE KINFOLKS. IN OTHER WORDS THEY ARE CLEANING THE DIRT OFF OF THEMSELVES. POOR WHITE GETS 3/4 OF ALL THE WELFARE GIVE AWAYS IN AMERICA. THEY HAVE THE SAME PLIGHTS AS INNER CITY BLACKS, BUT IT IS HIDDEN. POOR WHITE AMERICANS SHOULD BE PROUD, THEY ENDURED SLAVERY, MANY DIED COMING TO AMERICA ON SLAVES SHIPS AND MANY WERE WORKED TO DEATH. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. CHAMPIONED THESE POOR WHITE AMERICANS, AND MANY MARCHED IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. WHITE AMERICANS MUST COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, PUT AWAY THEIR SHAME, AND ENBRACE THE AMERICAN DREAMS. NO RACE SHOULD BE PUT BEFORE THE OTHER. ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE NOT AMERICAN CITIZENS , THEY DO NOT VOTE. THEY SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN GOVERNMENT HAND -OUTS. POOR WHITE AMERICANS RISK THEIR LIVES , TO KEEP AMERICA SAFE, IN THE MILITARY. POOR WHITE AMERICANS DO SO MUCH, AND RECIEVE SO LITTLE BACK IN RETURN. THE PROBLEM IS THAT POOR WHITES STAY IN THE CLOSETS AND SWALLOW IN SHAME. HOW CAN YOU BE ASHAME OF SOMETHING THAT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. YOU DID NOT ASK TO BE BROUGHT TO AMERICA ON SLAVE SHIPS. YOU DID NOT ASK TO BE WORKED TO DEATH, YOU DID NOT ASK TO BE SEPARATED FROM YOUR FAMILIES. BLACK AMERICAN ENBRACES THE SONS OF TOIL. GOD BLESS YOU, YOU ARE LOVED, PLEASE EMBRACE THE AMERICAN DREAM.

  • Kolob

    Whatta load of hogwash. Yeah, they love to be in the doctor’s office with women to tell them what to do with their bodies. Gay? You should not have the right to form a contract with your partner as guaranteed in the constitution. The GOP are exclusionists, they change the laws to suit their sick religion. Face it GOP, there are not enough pasty white folks to make a majority anymore! The only thing the GOP has is to find ways to exclude voters. Real patriots, huh? Whiny little brats.

    • Kate8

      Kolob – You are as idiotic as the rest of your friends.

      How about just leaving those issues out of government and legislation and allowing people to choose for themselves? We don’t need government ruling and regulating every aspect of our lives.

      It is you leftists who like to do everything by FORCE. If everyone doesn’t embrace the same lifestyles and beliefs that you do, you just pass laws to club everyone into submission.

      We all have the natural right to believe as we choose, associate with whom we choose, teach our children as we choose…

      We simply don’t need people like YOU telling us how we must live.

        I FEEL THE SAME WAY AS A BLACK AMERICAN, I SEE TO MUCH LIKE THINKING AND TO ME THAT IS VERY DANGEROUS. SOME BLACKS SEEM LIKE ZOMBIES, EVERYTHING OBAMA SAYS THEY GO ALONG WITH IT KNOWING THAT IT IS AGAINST THEIR PRINCIPLE. BLACK PEOPLE WOULD NEVER GO ALONG WITH SOME WHITE PERSON IF THEY SAID THAT GAYS, SAME SEX MARRIAGES, AND ABORTIONS WERE ALRIGHT. MOST BLACK WOMEN THAT ARE HAVING ABORTIONS ARE DOING IT IN SECRECY. BLACK WOMEN ARE BROUGHT UP WITH VERY STRICT MORAL CODES. EVEN DIFFERENT SEXUAL ACTS WITH THEIR HUSBANDS AND BOYFRIENDS ARE FORBIDDEN. NOW BECAUSE EVERYONE WATCH REALITY SHOWS AND WOMEN LIKE THE KASDASHIANS, AND LOHAN THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE SAME DESTRUCTIVE ROAD. A BLACK WOMAN WITH A WHITE MAN , AND A BLACK MAN WITH A WHITE WOMAN WAS CONSIDERED WRONG. IT WAS NOT THAT WHITE PEOPLE WERE CONSIDERED BAD, IT WAS A RESPECTFUL THING TO DO.
        AND WOMEN CHANGING MEN LIKE THEY CHANGE THEIR UNDERWEAR, WAS DISGRACEFUL.
        OBAMA HAVE LEAD BLACK AMERICANS TO A PLACE OF DARKNESS. HE HAVE DESTROYED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LIVES. OBAMA DID THIS JUST TO WIN AND TO REMAIN PRESIDENT. I JUST WONDER , WHERE HAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL, STRONG , GODLY BLACK PEOPLE HAVE GONE. BUT THERE ARE MANY BLACK AMERICANS THAT ARE PROTESTING OBAMA BUT THEY DO NOT GET THE MEDIA ATTENTION. BUT I SAY THIS, IF THE PRESIDENT WAS WHITE , WOULD ONE BLACK PERSON VOTE FOR HIM. THEY WOULD DEMAND THAT HE BE THROWN INTO PRISON, OR SOMEONE WOULD TRY AND KILL HIM.

        Gay’s should be abled to form a legal contract. it is impossible for gays to get married, and there are many gays who recognized these fact. the democratic party and the media will want to hear you stand on gay marriages. the democrates will find every weaknesses that the gop’s have. question you about it so the world can hear. if you do not have a sound answer they will use it against you.
