(USA Today)   You know all those GOP efforts to supress the black vote in 2012? They failed-spectacularly. New data shows that for the first time ever, black voter turn-out rates exceeded those of whites-and provided Obama his entire margin of victory   (usatoday.com) divider line 238

Thank god they aren't very good at it.  Or rather that we have a system in place that prevents the worst cases of voter abuse.

Romney's reception in North Philly was the best indicator of how many African American votes the GOP could anticipate. None!

Can you imagine how many would have voted if we hadn't suppressed them?

At times Like this, I know many of my GOP friends like to turn to Scripture for comfort and solace.  May i suggest the following text for their edification

"As Ye sow, So shall ye reap. If you sow the wind, ye shall reap the whirlwind"

or in the modern vernacular of kids these days "your FACE!"

This wouldn't happen if the GOP would just reinstate the 3/5 adjustment. Turtle-boy McConnell probably has a draft of the bill on his desk.

Clearly the GOP needs to give out presents like free deluxe 0bamaphones, and extra govt cheese wheels, just like taxfarthussin0bongo did to win.

Kind of sad that a presidential candidate can do the rhetorical equivalent of spitting in the face of nearly half (47%) of the country and still go on to to come within single-digits of winning the election.
 
2013-04-29 12:01:10 PM  
While giving black people the right to vote *may* have been unwise, I think we can all agree the bigger problem was giving women the right to vote.

Well I'm sure those trends will continue when the Dems run a white person in 2016.

the worst cases of voter abuse are done through redistricting

Good. Fark you GOP, you vote-surpressing fascists. Excellent to see your cunning plan backfired spectacularly.

Oh, and by thethe way, how's that minority outreach going?

That's because many of that 47% are too stupid to know they are in the 47%.

Nattering Nabob: While giving black people the right to vote *may* have been unwise, I think we can all agree the bigger problem was giving women the right to vote.


You joke but I have seen variants of this argument, being advanced in dead earnest, by the section of the punditariat favored by folks who frequent Free Republic, all the way back to July of last year when Romney was revealed to have a ten point Gender Gap with Obama.

Without the slightest race of a blush, these commentators and columnists explained that women, bless their big hearts and tiny little brains, were hormally incapable of seeing the big picture and voting for the best candidate and the correct fiscal policy, instead, they would always be drawn to the "sugar daddy" candidate who promises to care for them and provide for them the best.  they don't WANT to be moochers, you see, they are just biologically hard-wired that way, so clearly shouldn't be allowed to do something that requires rational, dispassionate thought, like exercising the franchise.

I actually find this to be a fairly common complaint among Conservative women. It always comes off as somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but with at least a hint of earnestness behind it.

"black voter turn-out rates exceeded those of whites-and provided Obama his entire margin of victory "

So how many times did white voters push the white candidate over the margin of victory in the first 55 presidential elections?

I mean everyone. STFU. It's neither the worst thing in the world since 3/5 and hosing off the Undesireables, nor absolutely necessary to protect the sacred rights of both Fartbongolian and Real American PatriotTM Voters. It is a stupid wedge issue with little relevance and negligable pratical impact.

Magorn,

I've seen those threads.  I once saw a massive wingnut circle-jerk on some random site where they talked amongst themselves and agreed to the following:

Yeah, man, if you're just voting for someone because you're black and he's black, that shouldn't count.

Yeah, man, if you're voting for someone just because you expect to benefit in the form of aid of any sort, that shouldn't count.

Yeah, man, if you're an atheist and not a Christian, you don't really care for the world and your vote shouldn't count.

Yeah, man, if you don't own your own house/business/stock portfolio then you have no skin in the game, and your vote shouldn't count.

At that point, they decided that they had perfected the voting process, and hoped that everyone would assume that they all had houses, business, and loads and loads of stocks.

Ha!  Black + latino vote on the upswing while white voters are decreasing.

It's gonna be a long decade or so for the GOP.  Either they implode or someone gets their head on straight and say "Y'know, if we actually stopped talking out of both sides of our mouth when it comes to minorities, some of them would actually vote for us."

The increased black voter turnout only proves that efforts by conservatives to eliminate voter fraud are not actually attempts at voter suppression, as claimed, and thus that these efforts should be continued and expanded because clearly they will not prevent legitimate voters from casting votes.

/Has that argument yet been put forward by actual "true the vote" advocates?
 
2013-04-29 12:25:17 PM  
They only voted for Obama because he was black and because they hate white people and that he promised them all sorts of free stuff and etc etc.

Voter Suppression shouldn't be measured in terms of how many people actually cast a vote successfully (that is a product of the overall number who attempted more than anything else).  It should be measured in terms of how many people attempted to vote and were denied.  Where are those numbers?
