Betsy's Page: Cruising the Web

Betsy's Page: Cruising the Web: Aww, perhaps to get ready to celebrate May Day or to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the New York Times runs...


Very long post.  I scanned over it until I found something of interest.  There was something that should wake up some people who are asleep still.  I've been trying to tell people that the GOP needed Trump because he could make the party bigger, and win blue states.  He won blue states, but there's a problem.

The Dems have exploited identity politics to a degree that it will become impossible for a GOP candidate to win the presidency in the future unless something happens.

It is rapidly becoming a non-white country.  Nothing can change that.  Unless the GOP can find a way to expand its appeal outside of the white areas, it is not likely to win very much in the future.

Trump didn't do this, according to some.  He did the opposite.   His was the white reaction to left wing identity politics, but it isn't a reaction that we should be hopeful about.

Not saying we should have nominated Bush, who wanted to accept left wing premises.  But we had better overcome the left wing identity politics, or this respite won't last long.
