    My only fear is that she will change when she gets to DC. I hope to hell I'm wrong about that. But at least the start of promise is there.

    many people going to Washington believe they are going to change it, then they find out they are only a newbie, and are told to shut up and listen.

    No, I think she will remain the only black female Republican member of the House of Representatives. Can't see that changing.

    What conservatives are portraying African Americans in unflattering ways? You can use quotes and name these people and we'll all turn on them.

    But it does seem leftism is all about perception, not knowledge, and are remarkably easy to lead. The origin of the term "welfare Queen" was thought to be Jet Magazine, designed and marketed for Black people. Welfare queen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Race obviously played a more important part in his election than experience or capability. In fact there were charges by the left that anyone who didn't support Obama or his policies was racist.

    Here's Mitt....

    All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them." And they're hopeless. "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
    None of them used the term "Welfare Queen". If you disagree with anything these candidates said why not address their points directly and they can then be honestly discussed?

    It would spell disaster for you if it did.
