Chuck Todd: Democrats Wish They Had The Same Diversity Of Speakers As The GOP- Liberals Attack

By Susan Duclos


Liberal TPM writer says Chuck Todd is "one of the more knowledgable and sensible people in political journalism."

 "By the way, Democrats wish they had the diversity of speakers and deep bench to show America. When you think about the Democrats finding — they wanted a keynote speaker that was Hispanic and they had to dig inside a red state to find an Hispanic mayor, where last night [New Mexico Gov.] Susana Martinez [spoke]. Before that, we had [Nevada Gov.] Brian Sandoval, [Florida Sen.] Marco Rubio, [Texas Senate candidate] Ted Cruz."

One thing the Republican Party has is a lot of elected officials to help deal with this issue of going against the grain on the fact that they’re mostly a white — their support base is a white, southern part of the party. The face of the Republican Party — the elected leaders — Democrats wish they had that diversity."--- Chuck Todd, in above video

Same Liberal TPM writer, on the same post, says "this has to rank as one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard anyone say."

Guess Todd is only "knowledgeable and sensible" when he is spewing Democratic talking points about how Republicans have no diversity or support from minorities and women.

Heaven help him if he actually points out how many speakers the GOP were able to produce that show diversity in comparison to what the DNC has scheduled.

Question to ponder: Since Democrats do have more minorities in Congress, why didn't and/or couldn't they manage to slate more diversity and instead are focusing on women?
