11. Gov. Martinez Is Too Kind To Republicans

When she claims that Republicans talk to them each election cycle. I didn't hear Romney talking to Hispanics or other minorities during the election. I heard him talking to older, white males. When the discussion mentioned issues important to those groups I heard talk about making conditions so miserable people would self-deport or the 47% that only want government handouts and the dog whistle comments, especially from the likes of John Sununu. That is talking to older, white males. And Romney got a higher percentage of those voters than McCain did 4 years earlier. Here Gov. Martinez is just trying to sugar coat the larger problems faced by the Republican party. Besides, she bypasses the policy issues that so turn off so many voters like cuts to vital services and trickle down economics that don't work.
