Horn: 'Put to Rest Forever ... the Party of Old White Guys' [VIDEO]

Newly elected NH GOP chair promises to take her party in a forward direction.

BEDFORD – Jennifer Horn's message was loud and clear.

For the GOP to find success and regain a strong foothold in both the New Hampshire and national political arenas, Republicans must change their thinking and their tact.

"We must put to rest forever the notion that the Republican party does not care, that we don't care about women, that we don't care about the elderly, that we don't care about children, that we don't care about the most vulnerable among us," said Horn. We must put to rest forever the notion that the Republican party is the party of old white guys. It is time to renew the GOP to the 'Great Opportunity Party.'"

Horn, speaking to roughly 450 of the Granite State's most influential conservatives Saturday afternoon, promised to embrace more liberty minded members of her party, such as Andrew Hemingway, the man she defeated to and to do everything in her power to mend relations within the divided party.

In addition, Horn vowed to take a forward approach to the use all available tools and means at her party's disposal.

"We've got to upgrade our technology, we've got to be much more effective on social media, we've got to use technology more effectively than we have in the past," she said. "We've a lot of great voices in the party who will be part of that effort. Hopefully Mr. Hemingway will come forward and be part of that effort as well, but moving forward we will have all the tools in place to win elections."

Atlant..... there are people right here in New Hampshire living on welfare and food stamps who, because they are not working, pay no FICA or Medicare tax. They don't own a car, so they pay no personal property or gasoline tax. Welfare pays for their housing, their medical, their transportation, their clothing, their food, and their utilities. And there are a lot more people living off your money than you imagine.

"Proud Conservative is proud to stop people from getting contraception and abortion, which means he can offer to pay $300 000 per child's life that he saved because he's such a great guy.....oh and now our taxes go up because all these unwanted children are being born...I'm sure you love paying higher taxes right Proud Conservative...have you done the math yet on how many lives you've fought to save and pay for yet? Put your money where your mouth is and be "proud" of what you are accomplishing by fighting for the unborn." Sonia - I gather that you're in favor of killing off people who drive up taxes more than they contribute to society. At what stage do you suggest we start euthanizing the sick. the disabled and the mentally ill? After all, if some of these folks are going to cost us big bucks to take care of, shouldn't we just rid ourselves of them - kinda like we kill unborn babies because they would cost us a lot more if they wind up on welfare. Perhaps doctors could be required under Obamacare to report those who they feel are a significant burden to taxpayers. Once a month the feds could round them all up, gas 'em in one of the domed stadiums, and dump them in a pit with other biodegradables.
