Time for Centrist Republicans to Take Their Party Back and Partner with Our President!

Many Republicans are angry over the results of our Presidential Election. They are fighting amongst themselves, blaming this group or that group for their loss. They blame Romney for his gaffs, including "the 47%" and "Binders full of Women" statements. They blame Grover Norquist for his Anti Tax for the Wealthy Pledge. They blame the Tea Party for their "Far Right Wing" agenda. They blame Donald Trump, Orly Tatz, and the Birther Agenda. They blame Sheriff Arpaio, Jan Brewer, NumbersUSA/FAIR and their ANTI Latino, Racial Profiling agenda. They blame Fox News, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. They blame Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Adelson and their billionaire fund raiser groups. They blame Paul Ryan for his "Voucher Program for Medicare." They blame all the in-fighting that occurred during the GOP Presidential debates, especially Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Gingrich and Bachmann. They blame Talk Radio, including Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck for their angry rhetoric. They blame NJ Governor Chris Christie for sidling up to President Obama after Hurricane Sandy. (plus they blame Hurricane Sandy). They blame Akin and Mourdock for their war on women. They blame Donald Trump, the Koch Brothers, Adelson and Poppa John - the rich billionaires and Big Business, who spouted their hatred of our President. On and on the blame goes.
The truth is, they are all correct. Republicans led a deplorable campaign full of anger and hatred against our President, against the Democratic Party. They pushed forward their Republican policies against minorities and women, . The majority of the American Public -- 53% -- detested their tactics and voted against them.

Today, as we are facing the Fiscal Cliff, many mainstream Republicans are taking a stand. Many Republican Senators are saying NO to Grover Norquist and his No Tax Pledge.

It is time for the More Centrist Republicans to take their party back. They should:
. Accept the ever changing demographics of our Multi Cultural, All Inclusive America
. Partner with our President to Raise the Tax Rates for the richest 2 % and avoid the Fiscal Cliff
. Work with our President to Pass the Dream Act and Comprehensive Immigration Reform
. Work in a bi partisan way so that All Americans have the opportunity to Achieve the American Dream, through Education, Jobs and Improvements in our Economy
. Support our President, Diplomacy and help us all achieve Peace in our World

Washington Post : Romney winning the Presidency : Romney needed 42% of Latinos to win Nevada, Colorado and Pennsylvania - He needed 43% to win New Mexico - But he only got these miserable numbers : 24%, 23%, 18% and 29% respectively

Mitt's Bad Luck with Latinos :

It is astonishing that Mitt Romney only got 18% of Latinos in Pennsylvania. But George W. Bush only took just 32 percent of the Hispanic vote in Pennsylvania in 2004, despite taking 44 percent nationwide. So Romney needed to perform better than George W. Bush, at least in Pennsylvania.

Excerpt :

"Latinos did push President Obama over the top in several key states — including Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico and Pennsylvania — that he would have lost without them. (Obama also would have lost the popular vote without Latinos.)"
