As I predicted in the blog post I wrote early this morning around 1:30 AM, Republican bigwigs are saying that the party most appeal to Hispanics and minorities. Karl Rove, Lindsey Graham, Newt Gingrich and Ari Fleischer all say that.
And Marco Rubio is joining the chorus and positioning himself for 2016.
And no, they are not going to read my blog, or Steve Sailer, or Lawrence Auster and change their minds.

Some naysayers will say "Half Sigma, that was so obvious, you get no credit for any prescience."
I think I deserve some credit for waking up at 1:30 AM (I went to sleep early in a fit of depression), looking at the exit poll, and pointing it out. Meanwhile, there are some silly commenters laying out plans for how Republicans can pursue what I'll call the Sailer Strategy or something similar. Not going to happen. It's much easier for Republican bigwigs to suck up to conventional wisdom (which is heavily influenced by the liberal media) and avoid even the appearance of racism, which is the most evil thing in the world you now.

Republicans will probably also double down on the anti-abortion stuff. There will be no shortage of voices saying that Romney lost only because he wasn't "conservative" enough, but "conservative" means someone very loudly talking about abortion and being identified with evangelical Christianity (or possibly Catholicism). Which is why W. is considered more "conservative" than Romney, because W. was in-tune with the anti-abortion nuts. Pushing for amnesty and not doing any budget cutting, the "conservatives" don't care about that stuff.
