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

    The funniest thing about Landieu's comments is that she is trying to blame her failing campaign on sexism when she is the incumbent.

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

    Its not just Landrieu either.


    Georgia Democrats — especially Senate candidate Michelle Nunn — are relying on pastors like Warnock to get the black vote out, especially since African-Americans traditionally don’t show up in large numbers at the polls in non-presidential election years. “If they were to hit 30 percent of the vote being African-American, they’re in the game,” Ralph Reed, the Republican political operative in Atlanta and longtime Christian conservative activist, says of the Georgia Democrats. “Anything below that, and they’ll lose. Anything above that, and it’s probably too close to call.”

    To reach that threshold, Democrats in the state have gone nasty in recent days: They are stirring up racial fears in the black community, outraging conservatives and talk radio hosts in the state who call it racial demagoguery at its worst.

    If you want to prevent another Ferguson in their future,” reads one inflammatory mailer sent to black residents in the state. “Vote.”....snip~

    I agree with Governor Jindal that Landrieu was speaking divisively here and add that it was for the most transparently self-serving and desperate of reasons.

    Obama's not running; she is. Let's see if she can outrun the criticism.
    On target.

    What, other than her southern racism, could possibly explain why she personally disagrees with Obama policy?

    Landrieu broke with Obama on several fronts in the debate, saying she disagrees with his proposed ozone regulations and she supports a 21-day quarantine for health care workers who have been treating patients with Ebola.

    Desperate and repugnant antics didn't help Wendy Davis much in Texas; they won't help Mary Landrieu in Louisiana.

    Please point out any part of her statement that wasn't fact.......

    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.
    You do realize that Jindal is not black right?

    She stated "I'll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans."

    She's been a PoS from the start, including during Katrina.

    Liberals have effectively brainwashed black Americans into the most non-thinking group in the US today. It's as if they want to perpetuate slavery in another form. It's a sad fact.

    We're trying to explain this, but they won't listen. And they don't realize that there is ZERO power in voting lockstep, 95-5, on everything. You can't progress if you can't even debate amongst yourselves.

    Minorities keep moving forward at a remarkable clip.....except for black Americans. They're stuck in the middle of nowhere, deteriorating from within, with no promise of better because they continue to vote for their own demise.

    Many conservative black leaders are trying to change this, so maybe there's hope. It's just so frustrating and sad to watch.
