    One of the little-noticed political developments in the last four years is that the GOP, the party of whitebreads, has made far bigger strides than Democrats in promoting minorities to high political office. Writer John Avlon pointed out after the 2012 elections that although Democrats had placed more minorities in the House, the opposite was the case in the Senate.

    The sole black person in the Senate is a Republican (South Carolina's Tim Scott). Only one Democratic senator (Robert Menendez) is a Hispanic compared to two Republicans (Rubio and Cruz). Even more remarkably, Republicans have two Hispanics (Brian Sandoval in Nevada and Susana Martinez in New Mexico) and two Indian Americans (Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Jindal in Louisiana) in gubernatorial mansions. The Democratic Party? Zero on both counts.

    BTW, you obviously didn't watch the video that Destroyer 25 posted....
    The entire leadership of the GOP could be non-white and it wouldn't change the GOP's constituency, which is still white and male.

      The country is changing whether you and I like it or not. In my case it is not the fiscal conservatives that put me off, it's the social conservatives that chase me away. I would not care if my neighbor is a pot smoking, cross dressing gay man in relationship with another gay man, owns a Desert Eagle and has a conceal and carry permit and is member of the Church of Latter Day Weirdos, as long as he does not intrude on my own way of living my life.

      What I found absolutely appalling is that in the last presidential election the one Republican candidate that I personally really liked was Jon Huntsman. His candidacy never got off the ground because he could not make it past the ultra-conservative inquisition primarily because he was Obama's ambassador to China!

      Excellent! Watch out when we become a minority, and all the former minorities find out they have to support us!

            I'm pretty sure you have to define "smartest guy in the room" carefully. It would seem unlikely that a room full of democratic voters could not be assembled with IQs over 160.

              The GOP obviously isn't the party of white guys.

                Since I have a real job, I've never been in a room full of Democrats.

                  We have a winner!!! However, this would have nothing to do with race or gender.

                        What is a "Latino"?

                        But hey...all white people look alike, right? But we aren't, so maybe it's time for everyone to become an "American", period, because once we're born here we are all Native Americans by legal definition. The Indians can look somewhere else for their victim status name.
                        Excellent post.

                        Concerning the PC use of native American, the Canadian term "First Nations" is much more appropriate and respectful.

                          I think Asians tend to vote Democrat because the DNC do community outreach and provide lots of goodwill in Chinatown, Koreatown, Japantown and Little Saigon.

                          Although...well-to-do Asians tend to vote Republican.

                            Unfortunately it does. The party's base, it's voters, are white men, a group that is losing its dominance within the American electorate. Regardless of the race or gender of the leadership, GOP political power still comes from white men.

                              "Asian Indians, with the highest median household incomes among Asian Americans, are the most one-sidedly Democratic; Vietnamese Americans, with one of the lowest median household income levels, continue to have some of the highest rates of Republican voting. Asian Americans are increasingly likely to view common political interests as a defining aspect of a shared Asian American identity, despite their conspicuous degree of within-group heterogeneity. And so on."

                              http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/fixgo...g-patterns-lee

                              Poor Asians vote Republican?

                              "Moreover, the strongest support for the Republican Party is now found in the southern states (a striking historical reversal), especially in suburban or rural areas, and it is easy to see how Asian Americans, who are concentrated on the East and West Coasts and in cities, might tend to find Southerners culturally alien. And, being well educated as a group, Asian Americans may be disturbed by the hostility to science, particularly evolutionary biology, which Republican supporters and politicians have exhibited of late."

                              http://www.slate.com/articles/news_a...ent_obama.html

                              So the best educated minority think that there is a problem with repubtards?

                              "Eighty-three percent of Asian Americans describe themselves as “environmentalists,” while 52 percent of all California voters consider themselves environmentalists. That number was even higher for Chinese Americans, with 96 percent calling themselves environmentalists."

                              http://www.asianconnections.com/comp...sts-poll-finds

                              Asians in other words are what Doc refers to as "Greentards" and vote accordingly.

                                One of the the reasons why Vietnamese Americans vote more heavily GOP is historical, though I believe voting patterns are shifting as generational change occurs.

                                In Australia the situation is the reverse - Vietnamese voters strongly back the left of centre Labor Party. That is all the opposition the ALP had to the Vietnam War (much more pronounced than the Democrats) and the fact that the ALP initially opposed Vietnamese refugees coming to Australia, while the conservative Liberal Party actively supported it.

                                Why the odd electoral outcome? this thread contains the answers. One is that the ALP had the infrastructure and desire to immediately reach out to the growing Vietnamese community & make the personal connections that can be important in getting support from some groups (including groups that support the GOP ). It dropped its opposition to refugees & embraced the Vietnamese community. The other is that the Liberal Party looked much too much like a 'white people's party', despite its greater initial commitment to refugees.

                                Watching the ongoing inability of conservative voters to grasp the problem here never stops being funny. Quibble about definitions; scream 'racism' at Democrats; play victim; blame the 'liberal media; imply that 'minority' voters are stupid; play victim some more; complain about the very existence of 'minorities' who don't vote GOP; miss the fact that one of these groups is women (see the problem there fellas?); refer to attempts to reach out to 'minority' groups as 'pandering'; play victim a bit more.

                                Rinse, repeat and never, ever, consider the possibility that any aspect of the problem might lie with the GOP & its base.

                                Too funny.
