What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Paul Ryan: I Didn’t Lose Because Of The Issues, I Lost Because Of The ‘Urban’ Vote’
To Rep. Paul Ryan, he and Romney didn’t lose because of the ‘issues’, they lost because more ‘urban vote’ voted for Obama then Romney.
The ‘urban vote’ weren’t voting on the issues. They only voted for Obama.
Memo to Paul Ryan.
Until you figure out that more people voted for Obama BECAUSE of his messaging on the issues, you and your party will continue to decline.
And how sad and frustrating it will be to see you and other members of the far right think you will ‘solve’ your problem with Latinos simply be passing some form of immigration reform.
To you, Latinos couldn’t possibly care about jobs, health care, education, the environment, safe food, international policy.
No just immigration reform.
‘In his first interview since losing the election, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wouldn’t admit that voters rejected his economic vision and instead chalked up President Obama’s victory to a large turnout of the “urban vote.”
“I don’t think we lost it on those budget issues, especially on Medicare, we clearly didn’t lose it on those issues,” Ryan to local station WISC-TV.
“I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which gave President Obama the big margin to win this race.”
