Another "If less minorities had voted, we would have won" comment by the GOP

It seems to be their main point. How did these people dare to vote? (or a more polite version, but clearly intended to mean the same thing).

Yesterday, it was Paul Ryan saying that if urban districts had not voted so much, they would have won. Today, it is somebody else from WI.

Romney Wisconsin co-chair says if only they’d had voter ID, Romney would have won the state


So, this is what the GOP is for: less people voting.

2. If the people that voted for the other guy couldn't vote, I'd win in a landslide!

3. Exactly

They're all depressed that their voter suppression strategy failed so miserably.

7. Narrow it down

They want less blacks, latinos, and other minorities voting.

And every single minority including myself will note it, and remember it.

11. Guess the GOPers don't believe "people of color" are citizens. Blantant racism.

Maybe it's time to get rid of the term, 'minorities'. After all it is a divisive word.

12. Well,

I wonder what it means then, that there were a LOT of cross ticket voting? People voted for Obama and for Ryan (for assembley). But I guess it could have been the vote flipping I heard about in Paddock Lake, where the vote went from Rob Zerbon to Paul Ryan...
