    I wonder if anybody asked if Bush would be the last white president because he was so crappy.

    The fact is that ANY black person who says they are Republican move to the head of the class.
    Cain, Carson or Keys = GOP loss

    regardless of thier REAL intelligence or ability, like a Palin, they are way out of thier league on a national level. When it comes to a national level and running for president they are morons! There would be no way to keep them from consistently and constantly stepping in piles of thier own **** along the way. Our media and american public would have a field day with them on that level (presidential nominee)
    Again not saying this is right or the way it should be because the same can be said for many candidates no matter what party they claim but its just that simply. If we are talking about the blacks/women on the right:
    Cain, Carson, Keys, Bachmann and Palin NEVER become POTUS.

    Certainly since Eisenhower (but like Powell he could have gone either way).

    Eisenhower 8 years
    Kennedy/Johsnon 4 years
    Johnson 4 years
    Nixon 4 years plus
    Ford (unelected) 3 years plus
    Carter 4 years
    Reagan 8 years
    Bush 4 years
    Clinton 8 years
    Bush 8 years
    Obama 8 years (hopefully shortened by impeachment)

    32 years Republican
    28 years Democrat

    53%


    Don't confuse the Repubican party with conservatism though.
    53%??

    Not much diference.


    But Republicans do need to make up their mind: conservative or not?

    I have never seen such a lopsided poll. I think you have your answer.

    The Republican party "today" has a wider range of 'conservatism' to satisfy and it's not really possible with a single candidate, IMO.

    Thanks. I find it comforting that someone from the "left" finds my comment "assinine". It means that I am on tract with rational thinking.
    No it means that your prejudice and bigoted. Just because one half-minority president was bad, doesn't mean all of them will be. Nor does it mean that all americans would assume the same prejudice opinion.
