    NM Gov - Martinez: Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment Part of What ‘Sets Us Back As a Party’

    Martinez: Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment Part of What ‘Sets Us Back As a Party’

    Martinez is another voice saying that what Republicans have to do, in light of the defeat, is not just look at policy, but also look at how the party is communicating its ideas.

    From Politico:

    “We have to start electing people who look like their communities all the way from city council to county commissioners to county clerks all the way through the state and up into national politics,” she [New Mexico governor Susana Martinez] told POLITICO and Yahoo News at the conclusion of the Republican Governors Association meeting here.

    “We need to embrace them not just at election time,” she added. “We visit them, and they don’t appreciate that. And I don’t blame them for not appreciating that. We should not visit them when we need their vote and then walk away. And then four years go by and we go visit them again. We have to make them part of the solution, and the way you do that is by listening to them.”

    She expressed disdain for Romney’s claim this week on a conference call that Obama won reelection because he offered “gifts” to minorities and younger voters.

    “That unfortunately is what sets us back as a party — our comments that are not thought through carefully,” she said.

    If by that she means that Romney should have kept his mouth shut, I'd agree. But really, his remarks were just a Good Old Boys' disdain for those not wealthy enough or corporate enough to have their own tax loopholes.

    Most people would probably identify Republicans with the interests of the wealthy. People who want to change that perception will have to work on policy, as well as on communication.
