Flashback - Jeb: GOP Too Often ‘Anti-Immigrant, Anti-Science, Anti-Woman, Anti-Gay’
“If lots of them were to read the blogs, the tweets, the Facebook posts that mention the Republican Party it would find that all too often we’re associated with being ‘anti’ everything. Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted and unwelcome in our party.
So tonight my thought is this. If lots of them can learn from its past mistakes, so can we. This means that we must move beyond the divisive and extraneous issues that currently define the public debate. Never again, never again can the Republican Party simply write off entire segments of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. They have broad appeal. They have broad appeal and we need to be larger than that.”
