    So if you knew I "weren't", then you knew it "wasn't".

    Yes, Harry Reid is solely responsible for Congressional gridlock.



    Onerous voter ID laws that disproportionately affect black voters; incessant demonization of the poor (a disproportionate number of which happen to be black); the Southern Strategy; some of the rhetoric used against Obama (sorry, but constantly referring to him as a "food stamp president" or "the Affirmative Action president" is not going to resonate well with black voters); "shucking and jiving"; openly courting birthers ... need I go on?
    Having an ID is not "Onerous"

    Obama is an affirmative action poster child btw

    You have just admitted in your own way the you feel that African Americans are helpless when it comes obtaining a drivers license or state ID card. Labeling Voter ID bills as an attempt to suppress the black vote is patently racist. And Obama is a food stamp president. He has undone the Welfare reform that was enacted under former president Bill Clinton. There are now roughly 45 million Americans on government assistance. And again your suggesting that calling Obama a food stamp president amounts to racism shows your lack of respect for African Americans. As for courting birthers.......that movement started in the Hillary Clinton camp.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Sen. Landrieu's remarks on race anger Republicans[W:466]Ok, trying to put the brakes on before things gets out of hand. There's a couple ping pong matches going on that are getting personal without discussing the topic at hand. Please re-focus on the topic, which is not each other. Thanks.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    So now you are suggesting that not giving in to out of control labor unions is racist? Oh my!

    Are there any intelligent RWer's here who can have an adult conversation with just the tiniest of historical honesty?
    You should be asking that of leftwingers including yourself.

    Not sure why having an ID is not onerous when it comes to exercising your 2nd Amendment rights but way too onerous when it comes to casting a vote. I guess liberals are OK with suppressing the rights of blacks to buy guns with their onerous gun laws.

    It most certainly is. why else would liberals argue blacks who attended wealthy prep schools get a break applying to top colleges over white kids with much higher SAT or ACT scores who went to public schools

    affirmative action is an assumption blacks aren't smart enough to compete with similarly situated white or Asians

    what is your fixation with "ivy" and what experience do you have to justify your fixation

They should set up shop in the heart of these liberal enclaves, hold rallies and town hall meetings, Show an interest and show how limited government and human liberty is the solution to their plight and how the welfare state destroys the human soul. GOP neglect of blacks and issues important to blacks is what alienates blacks for the GOP more than anything else, and allows the left to have success when they hurl the racism slur.
    I partially agree with that. I think republicans should court voters in the inner cities and other poor areas, town hall meetings, etc.....I just do not agree with hyphenating Americans by race. I believe in Martin Luther King's "I have a dream speech." I do not believe in pandering to any specific groups.
