    RNC: Voters see GOP as ‘scary’ and ‘out of touch'

    The Republican National Committee concedes in a sprawling report Monday that the GOP is seen as the party of “stuffy old men” and needs to change its ways.

    RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has dubbed the report an “autopsy” of the party’s 2012 failures and a roadmap forward. Priebus is scheduled to unveil the 98-page report at a news conference Monday morning at The National Press Club.
    “There’s no one reason we lost,” Priebus plans to say, according to prepared remarks. “Our message was weak; our ground game was insufficient; we weren’t inclusive; we were behind in both data and digital; our primary and debate process needed improvement. … So, there’s no one solution: There’s a long list of them.”

    “Asked to describe Republicans, they said that the Party is ‘scary,’ ‘narrow minded,’ and ‘out of touch’ and that we were a Party of ‘stuffy old men,’” it states.

    What's scary about Republicans mandating that the government force women to have giant probes stuck in their privates against their will and against their doctor's wishes?

    The fact that they can do so and also call themselves the party of "small government" while doing it?

    Well then can try, but it looks like they're not getting away with it - hence, their autopsy report.

    what is scary is that they had to commission a 98 page report to find that out

    I'm a voter, and I see the republican party as representing the interests of one class, but which crafts its appeal to quite another.

    I suppose were it possible to have the two coincide, it would be a remake of the Beverly Hillbilies.

    I see this as a way to embrace the Libertarian side of the party. Get the party out of social issues with a message of no government intrusion. Start a message of a humble foreign policy that gets away from the "bomb any disobedient country." Only go to war with a declaration from Congress. Start promoting fiscal conservatism in order to make the national deficit the primary target of the Republican party.

    That would work a lot better than what is happening now. Sever ties with religious social right wing and embrace the Libertarians.

    Frankly, there's nothing "scary" about the republican party unless you're of the mind that you should have the right to sit on your ass, and have your needs met, regardless of your input. I don't agree with them on the abortion issue (the ones who wish to make it illegal), and I don't like all the special interest groups they pander to, but that the same with the democrats as well. They are both taking us into the poor house, it's just that one party is taking us at a little slower pace than the other, and we're going to end up in the same place of fiscal ruin either way.

    If you choose your political party based on the fact that the other one is a boogieman, then you're essentially still a child.

    Then most of the right are still children, because they demonize Obama as the socialist, Marxist, Muslim Boogyman. Remember what most of the hard-lined right said that they weren't voting for Romney they were voting against Obama. Children.
