GOP’s New Plan For Elections: Same Old Message Of Hate, Shiny New Package

Excerpts from link:

"She could change everything about her/using colors bold and bright/But all the colors mixed together to grey"

So the “Growth and Opportunity Project” commissioned by RNC Chair Reince Preibus has released it’s recommendations and I’m so very VERY encouraged! Why, you ask? Because they took the exact wrong lessons from the election. They’re moving forward! But not on the rehabilitating the message that failed them miserably last year. Instead, they’re focusing on the delivery of the same crappy message. Hooray! This article covers the first quarter of the 100 page report.

More at link, tokenism, lies, hypocrisy continues...

... from the comments at think progress:

If the Republicans wooed only the people they intend to serve (large corporate interests, wealthy Americans, people in positions of power, etc.), they wouldn't have enough votes to get elected. Therefore, they have to give a sales pitch to the rest of us, and it has to be good enough to get people to vote against their best interests -- and a lot rides on people not looking behind the curtain to see what the GOP actual record is.

Fortunately for the Republicans, there have been enough useful idiots in this country to keep them going, as long as they appeal to racist instincts, xenophobia, and assorted conspiracy theories. However, people are gradually getting wise, so the GOP is having to devote more effort to disenfranchisement and election rigging.

imho it still looks like they're really floundering.

It's impossible to "reach out" and appeal to blacks, gays, women, when they've built a core base of people who hate gays, women and blacks. That is now who they are, who their primary voters will pick as candidates.

You can put a turd in a fancy wrapper but it's still a turd.

Perfect analogy!

The strategy is bound to fail, because people are still smart enough to not trust Republicans and what they are saying, because they know that what a Republican says is very different than from what he does.
