    It should always be expected that blacks will vote for blacks regardless of party when running against another race. It has been so historically for a longtime now.
    97% voted for a guy that presided over the worst set of economic indicators directly impacting the black community and one that had absolutely no plan or promise of 'hope' or 'change'. So...there MIGHT just be some validity to your statement.

    The whole thing is ridiculous. The whole thing implies that they wouldn't have voted for him if they knew he was white.
    Which is likely the truth. Its not as if Obama policy is helping black folks which got him 98% of the black vote.

    We'd never hear the end of it from the right, demanding an explanation for ALL Dems if he was one. I can think of a few posters here who would love it.
    Having an affair is rather different than smoking crack or accepting bribes from the FBI. Notice I didnt mention Clintons 'affair' with Lewinsky (though his rape of Juanita Broderick and his groping of Kathleen Wiley just after her husband had committed suicide certainly qualifies).

    The key word there being "suggesting". He very well could have just been "suggesting" that he considers everyone in the area as "friends and family". You "assume" that he meant it as meaning that those people support him.

    Also it was made clear that the "Ron Wilson" that was being talked about was a cousin. It might be in smaller print than the statement and name of the but that was still there. (and looking at the video showing the pamphlets those particular words were not THAT small.

    Except that there was no dishonest information in that pamphlet.

    It's almost as funny as when Alvin Greene won the Democratic primary for Senate.

    Wouldn't that be a partisan comment on the poor quality, or lack of quality of the opposition candidates.

    Of course it's relevant. It isn't a binary thing - voters are responsible for knowing about the candidates but candidates are also responsible for presenting honest and accurate information. By saying the content of flyers is irrelevant your basically promoting outright lies in elections (which we pretty much have already).

    No, I'm outright stating that is what he was intentionally suggesting. It's the kind of thing most politicians do in their flyers because they're mostly dishonest scum.

    Oh come on! There was no legitimate reason to advertise the fact his cousin supported him. It is clear he intended to mislead voters and put in the small print because that's the only thing keeping it technically legal.

    If you really believe that, you're as corrupt and dishonest as the political scum themselves.
