What message are Americans sending to youth when prominent national politicians, with highly responsible positions overseeing scientific research, express utter contempt for modern science?
"It's time for us to stop fighting the left's identity politics and start embracing them. We can appeal to groups as well as the Democrats do, we just need to make it a priority."
. How Republicans will rebound in 2016 is the big question. Will it involve major policy shifts or will they merely repackage the same platform with the same rhetoric?
In our "after report," Reagan and Matalin discuss whether 2012 turned on Messina's GOTV or Obama's views on government and taxes? Did GOP lose because of messenger or message -- both? Or is it, as Chou en lai said of French Revolution, "too soon to tell?"
The outcome of the 2012 presidential was not a fait accompli, as many are now arguing -- not by a long shot. This election could have gone either way. Anyone who thinks the Obama victory was inevitable or predetermined is in a worse state of denial than the hucksters at Fox News.
The Republican problem is obvious, they are fighting a Sisyphean demographic battle, not just because of changing demographics but because of the complete collapse of support for the Republican Party among voters who are not white, straight and Christian.

Here's my prediction: the day after the election, many a pundit will be chewing on the fact that Latinos played a decisive role in the outcome of the Presidential race.
With about a month left until Election Day, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are running out of time to share their vision for a fair, common sense immigration process. And really, haven't we been waiting long enough?
The Republican Party has all but abandoned people of color in this country, save when it orchestrates a façade of racial diversity as it did on occasion in Tampa. But the real numbers tell the tale that Mark Steyn and others would rather dismiss.
At last week's Republican National Convention, Florida Senator Marco Rubio was loud and clear: What makes us Americans is our shared belief in God. He's wrong.
Senator Rubio, the values you speak of are values I treasure, but do not stand at a podium and tell the world you and your party live to uphold those values. Your party holds profoundly xenophobic policies.
