    race baiting and racial politics. one would be a fool not to get the underlying meaning of his statement, that republicans are a little "racist".... Classic race baiting.

    I must be a fool because I assumed the underlying meaning of his statement was that black people tend to vote democrat. Just like union folks and young people do.

    digsbe specifically cited racism. and feel free to read obama's statement any way you like, i don't believe it was race baiting. i believe his statement was completely up front, republicans want blacks to stay home this election, because they tend to vote dem. how is that race baiting? you guys are taking this way too far. do YOU want everyone who votes dem to come out?

    That proves nothing. Your statement doesn't prove that Republicans want blacks to stay home on election day. You may suspect them of it, but you can't prove it. Neither should anyone make accusations like that without proof.
    Yes. If 10% of the population stays home, a 10% of which 95% of regularly votes Democrat, that's a LOSS for Democrat. This is simple math.
    And? Yes this is how elections can be decided, but that doesn't mean Republicans want blacks to stay home and not vote. Obama is race baiting and trying to anger blacks by pushing the lie that Republicans are racist/
    Yes. It's called an election. We've gone over this already.
    Yes, but you have failed to prove Obama correct and me false. As I said earlier. It may benefit Republicans if blacks stayed home, but that doesn't mean they necessarily want that. You can't prove that the Republican party as a whole stated that they want blacks to not vote.
    If Republicans want to win, they are of COURSE hoping the main voting blocks of Democrats stay home. Seriously. Do you know anything about politics? How do you win an election? Gaining the most votes.
    But you can't prove that.... It may benefit them but you can't prove that they have said "Blacks should stay home." Obama made a statement as a truth and said Republicans don't want blacks (among other Democrat voting groups) to stay home. He based that not of proof or evidence, but based on the notion that Republicans would benefit. Equally then, Democrats must want white males and Christians to stay home. It's true because it would benefit the Democrats...
    Is this a joke? Seriously are you not focusing on anything that is being said?
    Are you not focusing on what is being said? I said Republicans would benefit from blacks staying home as around 90% of them vote Democrat. What I said is that Obama can't prove it, and his statement is classic race baiting.
    No. It's not. Learn the definition of racism. Obama made a reference to the VOTING BLOCKS OF DEMOCRATS. That you feel like you're being accused of being racist is very telling.
    Obama is being a race baiter. He is trying to enforce the lie that Republicans are racists and hate black people and don't want them to vote. He's trying to fire up blacks to vote by telling them his opposition doesn't want them to vote at all, thus using anger to motivate them.
    BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT A DEMOCRATIC VOTING BLOCK. He did however mention Unions, college students. What? No white christian males there?
    He was saying to a crowed that Republicans do not want groups that are a traditional voting block for Democrats to vote. He is trying to rally them to vote through feeding anger and race baiting He posts an unprovable statement as true simply based on the fact that Republicans may want to have a disproportional election because it would benefit them. What about those who want to have a fair race for Democracy's sake and have everyone vote regardless of traditional blocks?
    Aren't you a Republican? So then yes. He wants you to stay home.

    Listen digsbe, we can go back and forth all day about this but in the end you're being ridiculously dishonest. I assume that that the fact that you didn't address his reference to college students and union members means you don't think either of these groups have white Christian males in them. The reality is that a party will always want the main voting groups in another party to stay home. This is politics 101. Not racism. Get real please?
    No, I am an independent and I was actually considering voting Democrat in the next election.

    We can go back and forth, but you are the one being dishonest. All I stated is that Obama is baiting people to vote through anger. I asked you to prove that Republicans have stated that they want blacks, unions, and traditional Democrat voting blocks to stay home. Obama has stated a lie based on feeling and not proof. Obama is being dishonest, fueling anger, and trying to re-enforce the lie that Republicans are racist and want to keep blacks down (via not voting). I will ask again, prove that Republicans want blacks to stay home. Not that it might benefit them, but that they truly do not want black people to vote.

    Your entire post is refuted by this question:

    Do Republicans want the Democratic base to stay home?

    Republicans counting on blacks staying home....
    Democrats counting on blacks staying stupid... how many decades will blacks keep falling for the dems lies of "we are the party that has your best interest at heart"? If that were the case...why haven't the dems done anything to address the many issues plaguing the black communities?


    keep em down, keep em dependent, keep em voting dem

    Yes, yes... we know...

    Southern strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In American politics, the Southern strategy is a Republican Party method of winning Southern states in the latter decades of the 20th century and first decade of the 21st century by exploiting opposition to the cultural upheaval of the 1960s/70s and in reaction to the changing economics of the South.

Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.[3]

    So does this mean that mentioning any demographic is baiting? Could one be poorbaiting, redneckbaiting, christianbaiting?

    If not, what is the difference.
