Republican Leadership In Confusion 3/23/2013

Chairman Reince Priebus

“This is not my report,” Republican National Committee chief Reince Priebus told reporters, describing the contents as simply recommendations by a five person panel, even though he was the person who had commissioned the self-audit after the party lost a second consecutive presidential election last fall.

The idea was to develop a road map for a new, more inclusive party that would attract minority voters, support immigration reform and embrace “welcoming and inclusive” attitudes on gay rights.

“There’s not unanimity even among Hispanics as to what the exact immigration overhaul would look like". 

He made the comments immediately after declaring Monday “day one” of the party’s push to change perceptions the audit uncovered that the Republicans are “narrow minded,” unwilling to grant other people social rights or to accept other viewpoints narrow-minded
 people who feared social change.> “out of touch” and “stuffy old men.”

“The perception that we’re the party of the rich unfortunately continues to grow,” Priebus said as he released the report, drawn up by panelists with ties to “big-tent” Republicans who have long favored more inclusive policies opposed by ideological purists.

Luke 6:24-25 – “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.
