    It's only "racist" if you completely change the definition of "racist" to fit your cute little narrative.

    I made no such insistence.

    Every voting bloc -- every single one, without exception -- is going to vote for candidates that speak to their issues, that offer something.

    and the response from jeffersons supporters?
    If those two elections were a respite from the norm, I prefer the respite. I prefer to make up my mind on whom to vote for due to their visions, ideas and solutions. Not because someone smoked pot back in school or said something stupid 30 years earlier. I don't give a hoot about that.

    I got so tired of all the lies being told in our senate race in Georgia, Perdue lying about Nunn and Nunn lying about Perdue that I decided I wasn't going to be part of sending a bald face liar to Washington to lie to us while there. I voted for Amanda Swafford. You can have your liars, the cherished candidates and parties that will do anything and everything to win except tell you the truth.

    It is said we get the government we deserve and oh boy, do we ever deserve this one. If no one cares about a candidates vision or where they will take America, only about the mud, the slogans and lying rhetoric, what can I say? You have what and whom you voted for. Enjoy.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Except that is a lie because no one actually believes that. Well except maybe liberals who believe anything any other liberal says.

    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.
    Yep. Democrats like Landrieu see themselves as losing in next weeks election and are desperate. They are attempting to use race baiting to increase the African American turnout. Sadly it shows just how little respect they have for African Americans.

    Well, you kind of have to sympathize with liberals on this to some degree. Since left wing policies have done virtually nothing to improve the lives of most blacks, they have to dream up ways of getting them excited enough about election day to come to the polls. Saying the other guy will put them back into slavery if they don't vote is one way, but it does show how little respect they have for the intelligence of their base that they think they can be so easily fooled.

    'Some in the GOP believe slavery is not over.' That is what he said. Now, anyone with an ounce of integrity would denounce such a statement, but true to form, here comes you to defend it to the death. Dude, you have zero credibility and this is why.

    Got it, Landrieu is "race baiting" because her statement that Blacks have had a hard time in the South is unreasonable.
