    QOTD

    MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Republicans hoping to reach beyond the party’s white, aging core must do more than retool campaign strategy and tactics, say young GOP leaders pressing elected officials to offer concrete policies to counter Democratic initiatives.

    “It’s very easy to just say no, and there are times where it’s appropriate to say no,” said Jason Weingartner of New York, the newly elected chairman of the Young Republican National Federation. “But there are times where you need to lead and present ideas on the issues of the day.”

    Weingartner and other under-40 activists at a recent national young Republican gathering in Mobile said their party must follow an all-of-the-above approach. Their assessment goes beyond the more general prescriptions that many party leaders, including Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman, have offered since November, when Republicans lost the popular vote for the fifth time in the past six presidential elections.

    The latest loss was due in large measure to President Barack Obama’s advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney among younger and nonwhite voters.
    ...

    “We don’t have to lose our principles,” said Angel Garcia, who leads the Young Republicans in Chicago, Obama’s hometown. “But we have to have a conversation on all these issues so we don’t leave Democrats to say we’re just old white men and racist, bigoted homophobes.”

      While true about principles, young Republicans are dismayed and disgusted by the "culture wars" of their geezer elders. The current crop of elected Republicans are there because of he geezers, not sensible Republicans.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      “We don’t have to lose our principles,”....... BOTTOM LINE - We don't have to change, just so it seems like we have.
