    "With black unemployment still at near record levels, and many African-Americans feeling they have been ignored by this President, a little race war might be exactly what the doctor ordered to gin up excitement in this demographic."


    ^^^ This is what they have planned!

    The GOP will NEVER bring it up. They're scared to death of the race issue. Heck, somebody might call them names!!!!!

    Dan Rather is still trying to prove that the National Guard letter regarding George W. Bush, with the proportional font and superscript type, was produced on a vintage 1960's IBM Selectric typewriter... :upeyes:

    Wouldn't mind seeing him follow his buddy Mikey Wallace soon.

    The media has done a great job taking the Trayvon thing and making it an issue. Can't talk about real issues that affect everyone so we gotta make the election center around non-issues like race and birth control. Forget gas prices, inflation, unemployment, wars, etc.

    That's why CNN wants to start using the 'N' word .... they want to start a Race Riot to help Obama. Actually amongst Black Males unemployment is the highest it has ever been in US history. Talk about getting the Government you deserve. How's that "Hope and Change", working out?

    Rather & CO can take their "race card" and shove it as far as I'm concerned.
    If I had to choose between Romney or Cain, I'd choose Cain.
    Elections SHOULD be based on experience, competence and vision, not because of race.

    So, nowadays we supposed to vote for a person JUST because of their skin color?
    No thank you.

    Obama once again will get 90+of the black vote and they're hoping of using "white guilt" as a means of obtaining a few percent of the white vote in order to get him re-elected.

    If he should be re-elected, the voters will get exactly what they asked for and deserve.

    They have to run on race.

    Cannot run on the economy and "its all Bush's fault" is wearing thin.

    LOL

    Rather is probably still pissed that gone are the days when he and Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings could spoon-feed the sheeple all the news and we had no other outlets, from which to educate ourselves on what is going on in our world.

    Translation: Obama is in so much trouble that the left fears a low black voter turn out.
