I know that in the democratic process you’re not going to always get everything you want.
This is so far from where the party is now I don't know that a politician who said that could get elected today. And the quote is from Conservative Idol Ronald Reagan.
This article lays out a good path to winning an election but the reality of the Republican party is shambles and obstructionism. Kasich seems reasonable but you've got this whole wing of the party who want to deport every day laborer using SWAT style APCs and at the same time usher in some Randian free market utopia where the poor are ground into cattle feed because the market finds that viable. There's no strategy, they're shouting at each other as much as they're shouting at the Dems on the hill and they're really not nationally viable because of it.
Rubio, with his youthful appearance, could also help attract voters between the ages of 18 and 29, 60 percent of whom supported Obama in 2012.
How fucking cynical is that statement? Young people vote for attractive people? I get this guy is trying to build a ticket to win, and abhorr that winning is more important than any issue, but that's the best you can do? Rubio is handsome? Old White Man/Handsome Cuban 2016, put your money on that because we can win Ohio, Florida and the shallow vote.
