GOP needs revamped imagefor 2016

(Continued)

The party knows it must do far better than the 29 percent of Hispanic votes Romney received.

”Immigration reform will not occur until conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution,” prospective 2016 candidate Rand Paul said in a speech at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Legislative Summit on Tuesday. “I think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you.”

That’s a good start. If that kind of inclusive thinking catches on in the Republican Party, it can not only end all the silly talk about it disappearing, it can start winning national elections again.
