Now is the time, now is the time, now is the time. We need to use our heads and learn from our mistakes.
In 2008, Obama won black voters 18-29 years of age by 91 points (95%-4%) over John McCain.
In 2012, Obama won African Americans 18-29 years of age by 83 points (91%-8%) over Romney.
Even though young Hispanic and Asian voters, many of whom voting for the first time, went dramatically for Obama, these numbers show there may be some room in the future for Republicans to make inroads among the next generation of black voters.
So we made slight inroads, we still have a way to go. John Nolte sums up the proper response to this little predicament quite nicely.
Hi Wealthy GOPers: Instead of giving millions to Rove, next time pour it into the culture.

Learn from our mistakes people, learn from our mistakes. We have a lot of work to do.
