A black conservative republican is like kryptonite to liberal/progressives.

How dare they lose a black man to the enemy?

How dare a black man escape the bondage of the democratic party? They're supposed to bow before the democrat leaders for all that they have "given" them.

You can believe what they tell you and I'm going to believe what I see and hear
Really? Hmmmm, I've been to a number of rallies, and never saw one sign comparing Hitler to Obama, or racial slurs. Sure you didn't just hear about it on NPR? I know they like to tell folks about those make believe signs, and poof - it's the truth.

I'll believe what I see (no such signs) and not what I hear (that Storm Front is part of the movement).

That is because they can always find a way to spin things so they are right.

Two years ago they were saying that conservatism was dead and that the Republican Party was going to become extinct. Guess how that one turned out?

West is probably a one-termer. His chief of staff choice was interesting to say the least, but the bigger issue here is the new FL law passed by the voters which will turn redistricting over to a non-partisan panel.

Gerrymandered hell like what is below won't be around anymore

I guess neither you or the OP learned the lesson about predicting winners and losers. This thread should stand as an example of what not to do.
