    What a fail.

    FFS....when I said the Southern Dems WERE (by and large) racists in the 60's BUT that NOW it is the GOP that has captured the (racist) Southern White vote, Landrieu is simply confirming that OBVIOUS point when she commented on the lack of support for the President. It is so weird how the GOP is aghast when the obvious is stated.



    Um, if you are talking about the GOP dominated South, and the poverty contained within, I'm afraid that blaming the Dems is really off the...map.

    PS...as I said to the Fenton..
    Well I guess we can add black republicans and their organization to your list of dumb asses because of what they promote on their website. The poverty of Blacks isn't just limited to the South. Who has run Detroit into the ground under Democrat leadership? Why is Chicago, New York and any other Democratic stronghold strugging with Black gangs mainly due to the lack of jobs? It's the system that has made Blacks poor. Forget color, it's making a lot of folks poor. By offering government assistance being designed out of Washington that they make every state abide by the regulations, you take away the incentive to be all they can. They don't have to work toward a goal because government is going to provide just enough to get by. It's disgusting. The anti-capitalistic attitude on the left thwarts economic growth to produce the needed jobs of those who truly want to work. The over-regulating of EVERYTHING thwarts the growth also. Democratic states are not known for being business friendly and have much higher unemployment rates.

    I think governmental assistance enslaves even if those who grow dependent on this don't see it. And it's not limited to blacks either. At all.

    There is straw, there is soiled straw, and there is rotted fungus infected straw. This comment by you is of the last variety.
    The poverty of Blacks isn't just limited to the South.
    More straw, I did not say it was, the topic has been the South, if you were following along.
    Who has run Detroit into the ground under Democrat leadership? Why is Chicago, New York and any other Democratic stronghold strugging with Black gangs mainly due to the lack of jobs?
    Wait...what administration is responsible for the largest decline in employment since 1929? The answer is the Bush administration.

    I asked apst in another thread for him to back up his claim that welfare has caused recipients to lose the ability to work. He declined. So you go right ahead and waste your time trying to support another failed Right Wing meme.

    But this is all a distraction from the fact that you can't show that the Southern Strategy was debunked....at all, nor have you shown that what Landrieu said was incorrect.

    The fact is, she was spot on.

    But back to the thread's topic, which is Mary Landrieu's bite-the-hand-that-elected-you remarks, we'll see Tuesday if this strategy gins up her voters.

    I remember listening to Roy Innis speak at my college and he made a reference to a girl who puts out without much prompting and then wonders why the guys she sleeps with don't do anything for her.

    he noted blacks are that way with the democrats. They give the democrats all they want and the Dems don't have to give them anything in return.

    Oh yes I have shown what a cheap shot Landrieu made and you helped me do it by pointing out that things have changed since the 60's. That the racists in the Democratic party that caused Blacks a lot of suffering are no longer in charge in the South. So why is Landrieu still living in the 60's? She's desperate and needs to gin up some good old-fashioned "Republicans are Racists" BS. "Republicans are Sexist" BS. A double whammy. One for the Black vote and one for the female vote. Two blocks of voters the Democrats count on to stay in power. Two blocks of voters they have managed to convince them they are "victims" and only a Democrat can save them.

    What else would you expect from a segregationist who supported Nixon, accepted money from payday banks, Exxon/Mobil and Monsanto.

    You are still having so much difficulty understanding that the GOP has NOW captured the the same vote held by Dixiecrats. Your aversion to this very basic historical fact is completely baffling and apparently....it isn't the Senator from Louisiana that is living in the 1960's....it's YOU.
