Candy Colored Clown: Blacks tend to be one of the more intelligent voting blocks because they vote for their best interests. White's who aren't millionaires, and vote Republican are probably the dumbest sacks of shiat in existence.


I agree with one exception... Blacks who vote Republican. I know... I know... it's at 0% according to this poll, but people like Herman Cain exist and I'm certain that asshat doesn't vote Democratic.

Lord_Baull: cabbyman: Just so everyone is clear:

Some white people do stuff: racism

All black people do stuff: not racism


It was totally racist when 90% of black voters voted for Clinton.


To be fair, Clinton is possibly blacker than Obama.

Corvus: RevLovejoy: So by my highly unofficial count, the following groups should not be voting for any GOP candidates in November:

1. Women
2. Blacks
3. Latinos
4. Lower income people
5. Old people

Other than the usual 23%, who is left?

The sad thing is many lower income and old people will vote for him.


Sadly, he's still polling at 48-50%

More great decision making from the black community. You have to admire their determination to cling to that bottom rung.

I know, tough to see. That's a 34 for Bush, and a 15 for Obama. The comparison is called "historical rankings". Seeing as that currently puts Obama in the top third of all Presidents, it would seem you are clinging to the bottom rung, bro.

vegasj: yet, it isn't about race?

Right black people?


/those damn racist whites are at it again


There's a long history behind this. Most Republicans know it and admit it openly.

"Conservatives should feel some embarrassment and shame that we are outraged at instances of racism now that it is easy to be. Conservatives...were often at best MIA on the issue of civil rights in the 1960s. Liberals were on the right side of history on the issue of race. And conservatives should probably admit that more often."

--Jonah Goldberg

"Let me say first that one of the gravest mistakes the Reagan administration made was its failure to lead aggressively in civil rights. It cost the Republican Party.

None of us in the conservative wing of the party appreciated the degree to which we were sending the signal to African-Americans that we inadequately appreciated their fears of resegregation and of being deprived of their rights which they've held for less than a generation.

All Americans owe liberalism a great debt for having fought so passionately to end segregation. The liberal commitment to ending segregation and the colonization of the Third World are liberalism's two great contributions to the 20th century. And they often did that in the face of conservative indifference or hostility."

--Newt Gingrich

Link

Maybe blacks would be more open to voting for conservatives if conservatives hadn't been so fiercely against the idea of letting blacks vote.

"The axiom on which many of the arguments supporting the original version of the Civil Rights bill were based was Universal Suffrage. Everyone in America is entitled to the vote, period. No right is prior to that, no obligation subordinate to it; from this premise all else proceeds. That, of course, is demagogy. Twenty-year-olds do not generally have the vote, and it is not seriously argued that the difference between 20 and 21-year-olds is the difference between slavery and freedom. The residents of the District of Columbia do not vote: and the population of D.C. increases by geometric proportion. Millions who have the vote do not care to exercise it; millions who have it do not know how to exercise it and do not care to learn. The great majority of the Negroes of the South who do not vote do not care to vote, and would not know for what to vote if they could."

Mikey1969: I don't get this. 0% among Blacks, 28%(vs 68%) among Latinos. Who the fark is out there to make this "close" for Romney, as people keep trying to say?


People who get the crazy eye and say things like, "the secret terrorists in DC and Minnesota are gonna sneak into power stations and shut down the whole country, and NO ONE is TALKING about it, man, the US of A is in trouble and no one sees it but these guys at 470.2 AM but man I can't like get a SIGNAL from them outside of town so I think Obama's got some kinda repression field going to block these ideas from getting in the heads of the rest of the sheep, but man one of these days the tide's gonna turn, the TIDE is gonna TURN, and we're gonna see all these fascists and socialists get kicked out, because man the army ain't gonna take it when they get the order to turn the guns inward man, I'm telling you it's gonna happen soon"

I felt a warm glow inside of me knowing that a Republican wrote those words. Then I realized they were written by Newt Gingrich. A man who convinced numerous women to suck him off instead coitus so he could claim he never had sex with them.

I quickly looked behind me to see if that warm glow was Newt's penis inside of me.

BUCHANAN: Well, I agree, I mean, I'll tell you why many African- Americans vote Democratic is because, you know, the federal government stopped, ended slavery, it ended segregation, it supported civil rights, supports affirmative action. But the Feds did that and they tend to believe in the federal government as a good, powerful positive institution, it's on our side. And Hannity and Buchanan and these guys are constantly knocking it, and that's why we are against them. So, that's an understandable position. But what I'm saying is it is a realistic statement to say that that's going to be the future as well.

Surely no one with children/grandchildren they love should vote GOP either - after all their history for the last 30 years is dumping huge amounts of debt (from enriching a tiny minority and lots of military adventurism and corporate looting); they will have to pay for in the coming decades.

There should only be about 2-3% left voting GOP - a few of the very richest and the most extreme unswayable bigots (even casual racists you would think would draw the line at destroying their own future to hurt blacks/latinos/gays/etc.) 

/and pro-lifers should be very well aware by now the GOP isn't going to do anything significant on abortion law in reality, that would hurt the turnout of pro-lifers in future elections

He'd probably be waving it in your face. Try bleaching THAT image out of your mind!

Goldwater's actions and words, however, indicate that his was a practical rather than a principled decision. Goldwater was a believer in both civil rights and state's rights, but made a political calculation to disregard the former principle in favor of the latter to win votes among whites. The Arizona senator told supporters in Atlanta that the GOP was "not going to get the Negro vote . . . so we ought to go hunting where the ducks are."[3] Nor can Goldwater's aversion to federal power explain the defeat of an anti-extremism plank by his supporters at the GOP national convention that would have condemned the Ku Klux Klan.

Your list was missing gay people. Most of us would rather set our pubes on fire and put it out with a bucket of angry honey badgers than vote Republican this year.


I'm invoking Rule 34 on that image, and now you owe me brain bleach.

Well, that just leaves rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, Methodists, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shiat-kickers and Methodists.


You said Methodists twice.
