Good Article on the Future of the GOP (None)

The GOP is in big trouble.  Part of it is demography, as we have noted all along, but there are problems even beyond that, according to a very good article in the current New York Times Magazine.  To take your mind off winter, read the article in front of a roaring fire and drink some hot chocolate.

Please note that in the article Obama's chief campaign guru, David Plouffe, confirms something I said in my postings about Marco Rubio having no influence with the general Latino community.  According to Plouffe, "The Hispanics voters in Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico don't give a damn about Marco Rubio, the Tea Party Cuban American from Florida."  Beyond that, Plouffe notes, Obama actually WON the Florida Cuban vote for the first time ever, chiefly because younger Cubans don't care about all the anti-Communist stuff that bound their parents and grandparents to the GOP.

It's nice to get confirmation of something I asserted.  Now you can know I don't just make stuff up!

Enjoy the hot chocolate!
