Ladies and Gentleman, Your Republican Choices For President of the United States
Romney just threw the election, just like John McCain.
Back in the early 80's, Devo made fun of this stereotype creating this image for themselves:
The image has become only more and more of a mockable stereotype in the years since.
That the Republican Party believes this is a winning image in this day and age, is sad.
It's a demographic/psychographic thing.
Romney and Ryan are two white guys.
Mitt Romney is the perfect stereotype of white guy, and Ryan is almost that as well.
Whites are a minority in this country.
Yet whites make up a large portion of those who would vote for a Republican for President. White men are pretty much wrapped up. If Romney wanted to win he had to bring in other constituencies, which he could have done by picking Rubio or Jindahl.
Instead, he doubled down on his own stereotype. It is not that a white man can not win the Presidency. It is that a stereotype white man stands little chance of winning the Presidency if he continually doubles down on stereotype.
As Romney does, and has done, and has now proven he will do again and again.
This is yet another boneheaded, tone-deaf, and impotent choice by the Republican party.
Say goodbye to the election, and say goodbye to the economy. We're in it for the long haul. Cuba, here we come.
