After Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama in 2012 (47-51%), the head of the RNC, Wisconsin’s own Reince Priebus, ordered an “autopsy” to determine what the hell happened. The 2013 report concluded that while their ideology was sound, their messaging and outreach needed some work. The GOP needed to “open the tent” and appeal more to women, gays, Hispanics and young people. Suggestions included spending gobs of money hiring “outreach staffers”, backing immigration reform, and shortening the primary process. Fast forward to 2014 and a mid-term election giving the GOP complete control of both houses of Congress (due to voter apathy and gerrymandered districts) and the RNC has developed amnesia. So much so, that the current GOP Presidential front-runner for 2016 is MITT ROMNEY, followed closely by Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Chris Christie.
Believe it or not.
