RE: What do white males want
What do white males want that should not be desired by the general population?
The "white males" in the Republican Party?
Here's what they haven't wanted
to change the way it recruits candidates, talks to voters, uses technology, raises money and reaches out to minorities in an effort to appeal to a broader base of voters and win elections.
GOP to spend $10M this year to convince voters that Republicans aren't 'narrow minded' and 'stuffy old men'
"The Republican Party needs to stop talking to itself," it says. "We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people, but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue."
Priebus said party leaders need to "constantly remind everybody" to treat all, including gays and minorities, with dignity and respect. The party would continue to support Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, who last week said he would back same-sex marriage after revealing that his son is gay, he said.
"We have to blow the whistle at corporate malfeasance and attack corporate welfare," it says. "We should speak out when a company liquidates itself and its executives receive bonuses but rank-and-file workers are left unemployed. We should speak out when CEOs receive tens of millions of dollars in retirement packages but middle-class workers have not had a meaningful raise in years."
Some Republicans unhappy with losses in 2012 are pushing for a new core message and moderation on social issues and views on how to deal with undocumented immigrants, while others are arguing the party needs to stick to principles.
That tension was on display this past weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference near Washington, where most of the speakers called on the party to stick to its core beliefs and there was no indication that the party base is willing to change the type of candidates it backs.
IF they are going to spend $10 million to convince voters that Republicans are not 'narrow minded' and 'stuffy old men'...there must be something to the perception/assumption. Unless they have $10 million to throw away. Further evidence of a "party of the rich"?
