Condoleezza Rice: GOP sent 'mixed messages’

By The Associated Press

This article was published November 9, 2012 at 8:36 a.m.

— Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the Republican Party must adapt better to rapidly changing demographics in the United States, saying the GOP sent “mixed messages” in the election campaign on immigration and women’s issues.

Rice told CBS This Morning that the changing face of America “really necessitates” new thinking.

She said, “When you send mixed messages, sometimes people hear only one side of that.”

Rice said the GOP came close to matching the Democrats in the popular vote, but she also acknowledged that “clearly we are losing important segments” of the electorate. Rice added that the party needs to “appeal to those groups.”

Rice said she wouldn’t be interested in succeeding Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state, even if asked to do so by President Barack Obama.

I don't know what was mixed about the messages, myself. As a woman, it was crystal clear to me that the Romney/Ryan ticket of 2012 was intent on taking control of a woman's right to make her own decisions regarding her pregnancy and decision of whether or not to carry to term! Women responded appropriately. Pregnancy and childbirth is not a man's issue, and for sure isn't the government's concern.

There were no "mixed messages." America saw through all the billionaire-bought-bull$h!+ and voted to move forward, not backwards.

Clear as crystal.

Haw! They were mixed alright. Mixed with a bunch of BS. Kudos to the American people. My faith in the system has been restored.

The only mixed messages I heard from Republicans was from Romney in the closing weeks of the campaign as he tried to be more Obama than Obama when his former extreme right stands weren't getting any traction with independents. It almost worked because his numbers began improving when people heard more moderation. Republicans need to pay attention to that trend.

I agree fellow posters -- there were no "mixed messages." The only problem for the GOP was that Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock and their ilk spelled out what the GOP currently stands for. No thinking woman would vote for these morons.
