After President Barack Obama was re-elected, the RNC did a post-mortem on the corpse the current Republican Party. What they discovered was the world’s worst kept secret…
The current Republican Party is the ‘Old White Man Party’; if you don’t believe me checkout the voting demographics.
So weeks after the 2012 elections many Republicans talked about expanding their base. Talking more about immigration reform and focusing on the middle class.
Well, that was at least a good thought.
In a move that really should not shock but it still has, Republicans seem to have boycotted the 50th Anniversary March On Washington celebration. At first many took notice of the absence of former Presidents George H W Bush and George W Bush; both reported declined the invitation due to health reasons (Dubya had surgery recently and Herbert is really old).
Yes the Bush’s absence was very noticeable but for me the was not the most shocking for me. The absence of elected Republican officials like Speaker of the House John Boenher and others like Rep Eric Cantor (House leadership) and Senator John McCain rang much more loudly. And this was not a case of an oversight, it has been reported Republicans were invited to the ceremony (Even Bill O’Reilly backed up that report) but just decided not to go.
And Republicans want my vote???
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
