    Cool Republicans Consider Welcoming People Who Believe in Math and Science

    Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today, “We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

    After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

    Just because we don’t believe in those things doesn’t mean we can’t get along with people who do,” he said. “We want to send this message: math and science Americans are Americans, too.”

    In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women” ...

    "And in their defense, there are two reasons why coming up with an alternative has proven to be difficult," Obama said. "First, it's because the Affordable Care Act pretty much was their plan before I adopted it!"

    ~ Barack Hussein Obama - The 44th President of The United States

    It's a joke, cigar, haha.

    Question, when are liberals going to "believe" in science? They don't when they confuse polling and math with science.

    Republicans believe in math and science. They just have no use for pseudo-science ginned up to support additional taxation, regulation, and robbing Americans to send money to the UN.

    I will go on record as a registered Republican and a fiscal conservative as being opposed to keeping liberals out of the Republican party simply because they don't understand math or science and believe both are subordinate to political rhetoric.
