ELECTION: Republicans don’t have a clue

The Republicans are in a feeding frenzy over who to blame for the losses of the Nov. 6 election. Some Republicans are targeting Hispanics and want to “change their message to them.”

These Republicans need to view “illegal immigrants” as decent, hard-working human beings who deserve respect. They need to care about their needs instead of looking at them as “numbers” for the next election.

Republicans don’t understand what most Americans care about: jobs, education for their children, health care and women’s right to control their own bodies. Until Republicans decide to work on solutions to our real problems, instead of looking to the next election, they won’t ever win an election again.
