McCain and Murphy on Future of Republican Party

This morning on Meet the Press, David Gregory ran a video clip of GOP strategist Mike Murphy’s appearance on the show from March 1. Murphy was the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain’s 2000 effort. On the future of the GOP, Murphy said:

The country is changing. Ronald Reagan won in 1980 with 51% of the vote. We all worship Ronald Reagan. But if that election had been held with the current demographics in America today, Ronald Reagan would have gotten 47 percent of the vote. The math is changing. Anglo vote is 74 percent now not 89.

The Party of No

I have some free political advice for those attending this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.:  Watch this ad produced by Americans United for Change. You won’t like it, but it sums up how the rest of the Republican Party, indeed the rest of America, views you and the House and Senate Republicans: you’re the Party of No.

The question you must answer now is, what are you going to do about it?
