    Good one. Wanna bet that Ms. Mary just probably saved Cassidy the trouble of a runoff? Cassidy occasionally has been polling at 50% which is needed to avoid a runoff. Personally I think she just pushed Mr. Cassidy over the finish line.

    Re: Sen. Landrieu's remarks on race anger Republicans

    Her insulting the entire southern half of the country with charges of racism and sexism will be largely ignored by the alphabet "news" media...

    the same "objective" journalists who flooded the airwaves with Romney's "47%" comment for months.
    Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.

    Yep. I expect so. Needlessly insulting the populace in response to her failures is not a great idea. I hope them there grapes she's about to eat are really, really sour.

    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/

    1) 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

    2) Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP?




    3) "Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP

    1) Yep, inequality of outcome MUST indicate imequality of opportunity.


    2) The racial identity politics card has not been played well by the GOP. To play the racial identity politics card you need "black leaders" (elected or already popular/successful outside of politics) to say join our party and support our platform. The GOP lacks those black figureheads - nearly all black elected officials are not in the GOP.

    3) The GOP will continue to lack significant black popular support so long as they lag behind (the demorats) in getting black candidates elected.

    Yet she is calling her own constituents racists? What an idiot.

    Edit- I forgot to mention Governor Blanco, the female governor the good people of Louisiana voted into office prior to Jindal. Guess her sexist comments don't hold up either.
    I guess Landrieu also forgot about Lindy Boggs.

    She made those desperate and sick remarks to drag in the easily influenced.

    I would be a little embarrassed if I were you.

    She knows she is in trouble now.....and this could end her career in that state. Jindal tore her up and now the Demos themselves will slide away from her.

    IMO.....she just gave the Repubs Louisiana's Senate Seat. Thank you very much.....now hit pasture and stay out of politics for good. She will be doing her country a service then.

    If you think that Demo's are going to win Tuesday, you are simply delusional....

    Read this from a Black author....

    "Blacks have always been conservative or, more accurately, traditionalists. This DNA was embedded in us from the depths of our African ancestry."

    snip

    When you talk about specific issues that are important to conservatives—abortion, welfare, homosexual entitlements, etc.—Blacks are overwhelmingly supportive. But as soon as you put the label conservative with it, the dynamic changes.

    Meanings are in people, not in words. Currently, America and specifically the Black community have allowed liberalism and political correctness to run amuck.

    We must breathe new life into the dormancy of our culture. We must water the DNA that is begging to raise its head once more. For the first time in the history of Africa, homosexuality is sweeping across the continent, babies are being born outside of marriage, and they are sending their elderly parents to nursing homes.

    I am one who makes a living based on my knowledge and understanding of the use of words and language. Before White and Black conservatives address the Black community on any issues, they first must define their terms of engagement. Bush 43 was called conservative, but spent money like a drunken sailor. Republicans leaders of Congress call themselves fiscally conservative, but constantly support deficit spending.

    So, one needs to define what the word conservative means and why it is relevant to a person’s everyday life. Why Black conservatives, especially those with a heart, have not done this is truly a mystery.
