House Speaker John Boehner is the most prominent Republican to admit, out loud, that his party’s strategy for winning in November doesn’t suppose that the GOP can win over some black and Latino voters, but hoping they won’t vote at all.
Actually I couldn’t find one place in the article where they even show he actually said he hoped they wouldn’t vote.
Actually it he says “This election is about economics… These groups have been hit the hardest. They may not show up and vote for our candidate but I’d suggest to you they won’t show up and vote for the president either.”
Which sounds more like he’s saying they don’t vote, not that he hopes they don’t vote.
