So Marco Rubio is going to give the response to the SOTU (in English and Spanish), and there is even a Time cover proclaiming him the Republican savior. Of course, the GOP does need to make more inroads with minorities if it’s to survive (and we need to get more of the country away from the “Yay! Government!” mentality if the country is to survive), and having prominent minority candidates out there should help with that. I don’t like pandering, but sometimes it seems like the easiest thing would be for the GOP to just put out an ad like this:
Are you a racial minority who doesn’t like taxes and government intrusion? Do you want to earn $174,000 voting yes and no on stuff?
Boom. We’d have tons of candidate to pick from. With unemployment so high for blacks under Obama, it would be nice for them to know the GOP is hiring.
