Sarah Palin shows Mike Bloomberg who's boss on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
RNC is overlooking the obvious Party-unifying theme: Big Soda
McKay Coppins of BuzzFeed captures some angst from the religious right over the Republican National Committee's recently released 2012 autopsy:
Some leaders of the religious right are openly worried this week after a sprawling 98-page report released by the Republican National Committee on how the party can rebuild after its 2012 implosion made no mention of the GOP's historic alliance with grassroots Christian "value voters."

Specifically, the word "Christian" does not appear once in the party's 50,000-word blueprint for renewed electoral success. Nor does the word "church." Abortion and marriage, the two issues that most animate social conservatives, are nowhere to be found.

But according to the RNC spokesman Sean Spicer, the religious right shouldn't fret:
"The goal of the report was to look at areas where we could do much better, and in areas that needs that substantial improvement [working with conservative Christians] may not be at the top of the list because they've always done a fabulous job."

Spicer also insisted that while the GOP hopes to expand its coalition, "the principles in the party are sound" and would not be abandoned. Asked whether opposition to same-sex marriage was among those principles, he said, "Yes."

Well, I'm sure the religious right will love being told the reason they weren't included in the report is that they're already doing "fabulous" work on behalf of the RNC. But the reality is that Spicer is right: Romney's biggest improvement over John McCain was turning out more evangelical whites, but it wasn't nearly enough to carry him to victory. Republicans basically can't win presidential elections with their current coalition.

The problem for Republicans is that they also can't expand their coalition without pissing off the people they depend on now, particularly in mid-term elections. That's why Spicer made it clear Republicans stood by their opposition to marriage equality. It's a catch-22: if Republicans don't change their tune on positions like marriage equality, they aren't going to be able to grow their party. But if they do change, they're going to face a revolt from their most enthusiastic and loyal supporters.

The GOP's solution to that catch-22 is to talk loudly about wanting to build a big tent but avoiding doing anything substantive that might actually help them build it. Their message comes down to something like this: "We want your support even if you don't agree with us." It's enough to make Mitt Romney's 2012 pitch look inspirational.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The coalition of plutocrats and religious right have gotten their way for decades and have shaped US policies in unimaginable ways. Now the plutocrats will need to put together another coalition. They funded the tea party FREEDOM! groups to bolster the religious right, and that was, I believe, a bad move on their part, as the increased radicalization and polarization has done more damage than good for them. I don't know if there are more natural constituencies for them to pull together, or they will have to go directly to the middle class voters with social programs. It is incumbent upon the Dems to focus on taking the state legislatures and governorships. I don't know why, but for some reason, voters believe that what they want on a Federal level in the politicians (which is Dems) they reject on the local level.

      Recommended by:
      RichM

      On big way to not have to cut service, and give the middle class a tax cut, is to tax churches.  This is probably going to be worth a half a trillion dollars.

      One argument against this is that churches provide services and those services would have to be paid for by the feds is not the churches.  I do not see this.  In my city most of the money seems to buildings.  So yes, if churches did not exist construction would fall, but I see a church spending minimal amounts on feeding and housing.  I bet it isn't even 10%.  This is also assumes that one tithes to a church for a tax deduction and not because it is your duty as  a religious person.

      A second argument is that the revenue would fall.  Over time churches would sell off property and, of course, it is assumed that contributions would fall.  I do not see this.  If a church sells off property, then someone else would pay taxes.  Contributions, OTOH, would like go to other charities that actually do some good.  It would be win-win

      In my city there happened to be two major city owned complexes across the street from each other.  One was sold to a developer and is now a tax generating very successful shopping center. The other was given to a church, so is prime real estate that generates no revenue.  Which is better for the citizens?

      weekend, one of my close friends and I were discussing how odd it is that her son is a very conservative right wing Evangelical and she is a liberal non church going protestant.  

      She blames herself and feels guilty but I told her son converted due to his roommate from business college being an Evangelical and then later, some of his coworkers at his job following college.   His buddies did a lot to convert him plus he met this girl who is an Evangelical. They were married in a very fundy small non denominational church that we think is rather cult like. Wow, I was there and there were a lot of young couples with a lot of kids , they do not believe in birth control.

      But there have been Evangelicals in our history and there will always be Evangelicals just as there will always be people of other faiths but the numbers..I am not sure about them.

  •  The plutocrats, and evangelicals OWN the GOP.. (5+ / 0-)

    and the direction they have pulled their party has diverged on a increasing tangential arc from the interests of the US citizenry.
    Unless they can ditch these uber-wealthy, ideologically rigid throwbacks to 1950's Americana, they will continue too act like the Yul Brynner robot on "Westworld", as his circuitry slowly fried.....And I'm loving it.

    •  The problem is... (0+ / 0-)

      At the end of the day, the plutocrats care about one thing: money.  The evangelicals are willing to go along with this as long as their extreme social agenda is addressed.  The plutocrats don't really care one way or another about social issues - they have so much money that they can fly their daughters to another country to get an abortion or keep their gay son's lifestyle hidden.  As long as the plutocrats can use the social issues espoused by the evangelicals to divide and concur and win elections, everybody is happy.

      But now, the social issues that evangelicals have pushed for are becoming extremely unpopular.  In 2004, a marriage restriction initiative on a ballot was a guarantee that the GOP could be moved to the ballot box to help them with other tickets.  It was probably a big reason why Dubya carried states like Colorado.  But now, marriage equality is actually having the opposite affect.  It stirs up a more liberal base to vote for Democrats.

      And the 2010 House has proven that there is no 'reasonable' discussion on abortion.  There may be some millage in having parents be notified for their daughters under 18 or they may be able to scare up things like late term or 'partial birth' abortion - but when it comes to banning it outright, an overwhelming majority support the right to choose.  Especially when there is no exception for rape, incest and health of the mother (which has its problems too).

      In short, the evangelical POV is shrinking and becoming more unpopular.  When there was a 'godless' enemy like 'communism', religion looked like a patriotic choice.  But now that the enemy is a bunch of religious fanatics, religion doesn't have the same appeal.

      The plutocrats are scared.  They know that their relationship with evangelicals is reaching rapid diminishing returns, but they know they can't cut them off because the will go elsewhere.  Sucks to be them.

They will talk about how they oppose marriage equality , they cannot help themselves. Their churches have it fully ingrained in their brains that they must speak out against marriage equality and abortion constantly and whenever the occasion arises.

      I think the RNC is going to try to sidestep the issue and not talk about it and probably the talking heads too...but the Fundies are incapable of not showing their disdain for LGBT.

    is that if they don't get a clue about why they're losing, then they'll think they have to start a few more unnecessary wars, in order to get and retain power.

    And there's a whole military-industrial complex that's just waiting to help them.

    The party fathers want to distance themselves from the Christianists and the teabaggers, because they have noticed that letting the extremists run the show repels moderate voters and has resulted in electoral failure. But they are also aware that if they get rid of the Christianists and the teabaggers, they will have no base left.

    O the humanity!

    Fun to read hashtag - The GOP airing their dirty laundry as they bicker amongst themselves.
    And, of course a few of us adding our own thoughts:

    Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....
