Speaker Boehner: The GOP needs to be more 'sensitive'

See also

Perhaps Arnold Schwarzenegger will say the Republicans are becoming a party of girly-men. The party leadership earlier this year released a report, in reaction to the election losses in 2012, urging the Republican Party to basically become more Democrat Lite in order to win more votes from women and minorities, who vote more heavily for Democrats than Republicans. Now Speaker Boehner thinks the Republican Party should wussify itself even further to become more “sensitive” to women and gay candidates.

Speaking at a press conference earlier about Republican candidates, Boehner said party leadership is, “trying to get them to be a little more sensitive. You know, you look around the Congress, there are a lot more females in the Democratic caucus than there are in the Republican conference. And some of our members just aren't as sensitive as they ought to be."

Boehner didn't define what he meant by “sensitive” or explain what a Republican candidate or member of Congress would do to be more “sensitive” to women or gay candidates or members.

The Huffington Post reported that, “Some Republican members are receiving training from the National Republican Congressional Committee on how to run against female candidates in an effort to stop the GOP's trend of poor performance among women voters.”

The Huffington Post article suggested, about the GOP, that, “the party was harmed in congressional races by several candidates' missteps on women's issues. One of the biggest examples was failed Senate candidate Todd Akin, who drew criticism from outside and inside the party for saying victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant.”

Neither Boehner nor the very liberal Huffington Post, has defined what is meant by being more “sensitive” and just how a candidate or Republican member of Congress would demonstrate such sensitivity.

The Republican Leadership, in publishing their so-called “Growth and Opportunity Report” earlier this year clearly defined their views on sensitivity. To be more sensitive to women, Republicans must moderate or sell out the Pro Life position on abortion, support government funding of birth control and abortion-inducing pills if not requiring all health insurance providers to fund them. To be more sensitive to the Hispanic voters, the GOP must sell out and support amnesty. In other words, the GOP must become more like the Democrats, who are said to be so sensitive to women and minorities even though they entirely take them for granted and do nothing for those and most voting constituencies they seek votes from, in order to win more votes from those same voting blocks.

Ronald Reagan once said of the Republican Party, that, “Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?”

Today's Republican Party is raising that banner of pale pastels that includes shades of pink and purple and no red, white, and blue. The GOP has become almost indistinguishable from the Democrat Party, it has itself become wussified to the point of becoming Democrat Lite. Ronald Reagan is no doubt rolling over in his grave to see spineless sissy frisses like John Boehner running the party.

Women and minorities should be expected to be for freedom and our founding principles, and upholding the Constitution as much as anyone, and if Republicans want to get their voters and lay claim on any other votes, they should heed Ronald Reagan's advice and become that party of bolder colors and principles rather than going the Democrat Lite route.
