Heh. I've been told, based entirely on skin color, that I want free stuff, that I'm satisfied with food stamps, that I'm a brainwashed plantation slave, and that I need to show my papers.

And yet, it's supposedly the democrats that "pull the race card". uh huh.

Face it, the biggest race hustler in the US today, is Rush Limbaugh. Matt Drudge is a close second, and Andrew Breitbart was a close third, until he dropped dead. Conservatives *love* dividing Americans on racial lines.

Been told by whom? Show your papers? What does that mean? Are you stopped by law enforcement under "lawful contact" and asked for your DL? Oh, the horror!

Who cares about Rush Limbaugh ,etc.? Most conservatives don't! No, it is the Democrats dividing Americans along racial lines by first claiming that "most" conservatives object to Obama because of his race or skin color. Nothing could be further from the truth for "most". Funny how Obama sat in that racist church run by Jeremiah Wright for 20 years. Yet, the left wants that shoved under the rug.

Who wants to appeal to racists? Like Hispanics who think their ethnic group is above our immigration laws. No politician whether left or right should sacrifice the national interests to pander to racists. Yet the Democrats do. Sure there are some racists in the Republican party also but we don't have an entire ethnic group thinking they are above our laws.

The GOP is going to attempt to repackage the same old tired policies, but as we have seen, they are not going to fool anyone. Their failed policies are who they. Can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Let's get this straight. Hispanics voting in the interest of their own people is OK, but saying that white Americans are becoming the minority and Traditional America might be done is racist???? Only in the Left's view I guess.

Yes, that is their warped thinking. Racists calling others racists. Go figure!

The key difference, as far as the last election, is that Obama did everything he could to run away from Farrakhan, while Romney openly embraced Donald Trump. The latter was a low point - John McCain and GWB would have happily denounced Trump, and McCain in particular was clearly happy to see some sort of equality hit the US.

Republicans would do well to follow McCain instead of Romney in this.

Why should they, he lost to Obama. mccains a fool and a loser.

As Charles Krauthammer said, "To understand American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil." Because liberals think conservatives are evil (and corporations!), they think it is just to smear them and distort them.

No it's not racist in that disrespect is intended. But it it certainly no less racial and self-serving.
White society was never any more saddened that the rest of us were considered minorities than should there be a catastrophe that they are now in that position where there needs to be all this constant wailing and gnashing of teeth because the tables have turned. We all get a turn. Get through it, like the rest of us struggle to..
