About -- you've written about the Republican National Committee and how essentially all the key players are white males.
Is -- glass ceiling for Republican women -- It's it's not quite that simple happened in this town or many many years and -- in years I -- work at the currency.
I think I'm not for quotas I'm not for that kind of affirmative action appearance in not -- embarrass him talking about the Republican establishment in Washington.
Well we see around the country nationally with Republicans.
Is that women and minorities are coming up organically and you see women leaders you EC that the election of women governors -- the impact of Sarah Palin -- and you see the impact.
And as such a voices that chancellor anger and it Michelle Malkin and others right center women who have real influence.
What's happening in Washington though at this.
This male power structure is that women are not hitting the top spots organically and I don't want them to go out just fine women of my minorities having put up press releases.
This minority person at a lower mid level person assigned to every student in the minority group and women as part of -- coalition and we -- more than 50% of the voting population.
And Mitt Romney has a good record with -- that he was excoriated for his comment about.
Binders full of women in fact he was kind of being held responsible had to defend this power structure just in Washington.
I know what in his spot just like this so the rest of the Republican Party and the country's doing just fine but the Washington power structure these mail consultants.
And currency and sorry to say it pleases you the -- -- -- -- aren't here.
But they need to catch up if you're meeting at the around the -- table and you don't notice -- -- senior levels.
You can't just say well -- the problem the women are coming right you have to you have to make -- look it.
If you if you've got these blinders on.
What concerns me if they if this small structured the small group of men who are losing elections.
If they have blinders on in in this regard.
I'm afraid that they might have them in so I would like to see the national party -- state parties.
-- other people from the grassroots the Tea Party kind of weigh in.
And -- and remind them that they need to do a little bit better job.
Richard smiling -- -- here obviously.
I -- -- -- just this -- right until I am I completely night I totally agree I think that is whether Republicans took the defeat did so did when he twelve I think they continue on this path of not having an inclusive.
Party would -- -- -- talking about the -- he -- talking about inclusion of women in the upper ranks of their party visual suffered the defeat I think what and one thing a comment that I made very similar to what you said is.
During the convention of the comment that I had with you know the Republican Party is very pale stale and male of and that's -- leadership looks like unfortunately.
The American people are seeing that and there they're voting against that it overwhelmingly -- that the body can situation look at the Richard -- situation and on and on and on and on all.
And you continue to see what she.
We have we have the Obama.
An economy that is horrible for women and minorities and we also know that women with small businesses in this country create more jobs and all the fortune 500 companies combined the Republican Party and our policies are natural for women and minorities.
And dead they're doing well in the states and at the grassroots level let me ask you the leadership positions it's just the small -- here in Washington that -- -- this solution though then a Republican governors say -- Nikki Haley or Susanna Martinez when they're tired of being governor.
Being the head of the -- C.
I think that's her a possibility that I I think that it kind of goes down -- -- to.
As he has as -- -- his fortune in this town and I kept pounding rent campaigns.
For many years -- if you have to you have to do a little bit better than I if I may in -- ninety's when you Gingrich became speaker.
He just naturally had women and minorities and -- and at senior levels and I don't mean I think he thought about it -- much but I think that new.
He's he's a strategist and it would not have occurred to him to cut off 50% of the population as a potential resource.
I and I think that George W.
Bush had some of that in him as well that it has not permeated throughout the party.
And again I say this system that he's been in this town almost thirty years I came here I was eight years.
That absolutely they see this in and we just got -- and I think.
And I think the party is suffering because our policies are far superior and I agree to advance I think at that point I think he's music the Republican Party line vote against the blue -- -- Iraq or for fair pay for women at work.
-- you know they really.
The big big big big really cut off -- some of the voting population you're not it's not excited I hit it gets.
That's how would you -- why is this -- -- -- that -- -- an economic policy the fact that a man and a -- do the same job and don't get this thing.
Start -- -- president of why the Obama White House -- women that's why the president will convert the grandson -- Lebanon -- and the president's pushing the F.
The pilot season that for the Republican Party allow women to be able to do well as a Republican.
Unanimously and then the really large with the same amount of money and -- everything does that -- they are OK they're so businesses they just look at.
Everything else that men make more than women do this for the same job.
At the Obama White House.
The couple of houses are.
Wanted to do well we just leave it right -- let's move on.
