    Mary is desperate. And desperation in politics is ugly.
    Run the race/sex card up the flag pole and see who salutes it! Well guess what Mary? I don't know about the Sex card, but the race card doesn't have the power it used to have. People aren't falling for it anymore. You can thank the Bungler-in-Chief for that. The fool wore that sucker out over the last 6 years.


    Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP
    I know this one!
    Because the GOP doesn't support near-unlimited welfare spending?

    There may still be some racism in the South, but nowhere near what Landrieu is piddling about.

    What's Bobby Jindal's skin color?
    Hint: It ain't White.

    As you bring up Jindal, and I'll add Haley, you've really missed out on what Southern GOPs have said about both of these Indian-Americans; or have you? Mayor Mitch Landrieu will be going against retiring Sen. "Diapers" Vitter next year for Governor .

    Anyone in the GOP who doesn't recognize the fact that the GOP has close to zero support from Blacks in the USA Is out of touch with reality

    Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP/

    She's a three term Senator...and female. Many elected officials in the state are not white males....including the governor.

    It was desperate race baiting. Essentially she's saying people should vote for her to prove they aren't sexist.

    Pathetic.

    The MSM won't report it, but I am seeing increasing grumbling from the black community elsewhere. Obama has given all of his lip service and support to such things as gay marriage, amnesty for illegals, and propping up and/or protecting Muslims in other countries and almost none to the black community and labor who have supported him unquestionably through two elections. And now some of the black leadership is openly admitting that unemployment in the black community is higher now than when Obama took office, incomes among the working are lower, and absolutely nothing has been done regarding crime that ravages their neighborhoods.

    Will that mean they'll go stampeding to the polls to vote for a Republican? Probably not. But if they don't show up to vote for the Democrat, that does not bode well for the Democrats. And I don't think race baiting by Landrieu and others will help. We can only hope.

    The real truth is constant empty promises from the dems.
    Show where the left has elevated the blacks over the last 50 years.
    Unemployment
    Welfare and food stamps
    Single parent homes

    Yes, the left has only empty promises.

    Well, I do...and it's a losing hand. Landrieu's remarks were pathetic, not to mention ironic. I mean, there she stood, an incumbent female Senator who represents a state whose governor is a person of color whose family is from India. Louisiana surely has a problem with race and gender.
