What's hilarious is to think about what kind of "outreach" they would perform, could they even get anyone in the door.

"So, what are you going to do to help me, a poor, single African American woman with 3 kids who finds it difficult to find and hold a steady job that pays enough to provide for my family?"

"Well, we're going to do everything we can to ensure that you don't get any financial assistant from the government, while also asking you to pay higher taxes as well. This will help you overcome your innate laziness!"

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
-- Rand Paul

Though perhaps this one is more appropriate for GOP minority outreach:

"I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."

quatchi: FormlessOne: HighOnCraic: Smackledorfer: Gop minority outreach isn't about minority votes.
It is about giving a little more cover when they try to convince some undecided ehite folks that it isn't a terrible idea to consider voting for their party on a national level.

These voters won't ever be hearing any more of the gop message than the ads right before the elections.

THIS!!!

Clearly, this. The GOP couldn't care less, truly, about "minority outreach" - they only care about "voter manipulation."

I'm reminded at this point of Romney's visit to the NAACP just before the last election.

It wasn't about getting more black folks to vote GOP.

It was more about positioning Romney as the-man-who-walked-into-the-lion's-den and condescended to them in order to shore up his numbers among the white male entitlement crowd.

Even with that understood RAND PAUL is a comically bad choice here.

This is like getting Michele Bachmann to be the GOP's gay outreach coordinator level of stupid.



Why not? Her husband has been reaching around to the gays in friendship for years.

I never get tired of these.

"That's one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind"

-RAND PAUL


"If the majority wills what is socially atavistic, then to thwart the majority may be, though undemocratic, enlightened. It is more important for any community, anywhere in the world, to affirm and live by civilized standards, than to bow to the demands of the numerical majority. Sometimes it becomes impossible to assert the will of a minority, in which case it must give way, and the society will regress; sometimes the numerical minority cannot prevail except by violence: then it must determine whether the prevalence of its will is worth the terrible price of violence.
   The axiom on which many of the arguments supporting the original version of the Civil Rights bill were based was Universal Suffrage. Everyone in America is entitled to the vote, period. No right is prior to that, no obligation subordinate to it; from this premise all else proceeds.
   That, of course, is demagogy. Twenty-year-olds do not generally have the vote, and it is not seriously argued that the difference between 20 and 21-year-olds is the difference between slavery and freedom. The residents of the District of Columbia do not vote: and the population of D.C. increases by geometric proportion. Millions who have the vote do not care to exercise it; millions who have it do not know how to exercise it and do not care to learn. The great majority of the Negroes of the South who do not vote do not care to vote, and would not know for what to vote if they could. Overwhelming numbers of White people in the South do not vote. Universal suffrage is not the beginning of wisdom or the beginning of freedom. Reasonable limitations upon the vote are not exclusively the recommendations of tyrants or oligarchists (was Jefferson either?)."
