5 Signs GOP Re-brand Isn’t Going So Well

1. So you lost your Hispanic Outreach director....

Pablo Pantoja, the Director of Hispanic Outreach officially left the Republican party and became a Democrat.

He wrote in an email: “It doesn’t take much to see the culture of intolerance surrounding the Republican Party today. I have wondered before about the seemingly harsh undertones about immigrants and others. Look no further; a well-known organization recently confirms the intolerance of that which seems different or strange to them.”

2. They turn away candidate for GOP Chair in IL because he actually supports gay marriage...

State Rep. Ron Sandack supported bill for marriage equality in Illinois and subsequently, was no longer a viable candidate for taking on the chair position. Which brings the question: If the party was actually looking to change, wouldn't they accept someone who the majority of American's agree with? Someone who you know, stand for equal rights!!?!?! Read full story here.

3.  Remember when Rand Paul spoke at Howard University?

Looking to court young African American voters, Rand Paul gave a speech at Howard University back in April. He did try to make some claims, such as never once wavering in supporting the Civil Rights Act, despite his stance that it was overly protective of black people in the workplace expressed in a 2010 interview with Rachel Maddow.


4. And this would be their smooth attempt at appealing to women...

...restricting contraception, cutting Planned Parenthood, mandating medically unnecessary transvaginal ultrasounds, forcing physicians to lie that abortion and breast cancer are linked, defeating VAWA, voting against equal-pay laws, and the occasional ‘rape’ blunder...

However, they assume somehow, they can gain support from “mommy blogs” -  See USA Today.

5. Most recently, the Heritage Foundation believes amnesty would cost the US $6.3 trillion...

The study shows that an amnesty program would bring in $3 trillion into the US economy, but would be offset by a $9.4 trillion drain. Co-author of the report, Jason Richwine has been in the news before for his 2009 doctoral dissertation at Harvard entitled, “IQ and Immigration Policy,” and has made the claim that non-white immigrants, especially Latinos, have a genetically deficient IQ. When in fact, "the best study we have on the fiscal effects of immigration reform, from the CBO, finds the impact to be minimal or positive."
