He got nearly 70% in NC and I believe 61% in VA, prior to the election I calculated he had to do about 65% in VA to win. He fell short there.

Nope. I'm just posting my opinion.

The best thing conservatives can do for their country is to leave it. Then we can tackle real problems like climate change instead of fighting over military spending and Benghazi. The real "makers" in this country are in the Blue States (i.e., Apple, Facebook, Harvard, etc.). And it's the Red States that get more money back from the system than they put in.

Both of those numbers are well short of 80%.

Hard to get 35-40% of a group targeted for self deportation.

In all liklihood, it will take 20 years of progressive GOP policies (the type those who fought for the nation like Bob Dole did not fear advocating) to undo the damage the GOP heaped upon themselves in the TP era.Until than, expect to lose Hispanics by close to the 75-25 in 2012. (and with it, the POTUS).


In 1996, no one campaigning for the Republican nomination would have moved to the right of the sensible policies Rick Perry advocated regarding the children of illegal immigrants.

I gave them the same speech. When I mentioned I am going to get rid of Obamacare they weren't happy, I didn't get the same response. That's ok, I want people to know what I stand for and if I don't stand for what they want, go vote for someone else, that's just fine. But I hope people understand this, your friends who like Obamacare, you remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy-more free stuff."

He went to the NAACP and laid out his views. I mean what do you expect him to go there an say he favors Obamacare? Here's a story about the Philly visit I see no mention of folks being miffed about him not censuring fellow primary candidates. Besides Herman Cain was around why didn't he say anything? The fact is a disproportinate amount of Black people are dependent on the federal government.
I never said he did. I just said he remained silent about it. Sometimes that is just as bad. I think you would agree with that notion because more often than not, you mention how black people are silently complicit with the dysfunctional elements of "black culture" even though that isn't true.

You want to bring Hermain Cain in on this? lol. No comment.

I mean it's nice for folks to have subjective memories now about how racist Romney and the GOP are but he made an effort and was met with hate, ironically whipped up by the peace loving Obama.

I find it ironic that the GOP is condemned for being racist, while Romney did little to explicitly appeal to White voters.

However Obama marshalls out his Black stormtroopers to scream obsenities at Romney, parcels out the electorate by race, gender and other charecteristics to dole out gifts, yet he's the one who will bring together.

Folks are really losing it if they are buying this nonsense.
There you go again. Gifts. I am assuming mine got lost in the mail.

Anyway, I sure hope you were aware of the narrative the Republicans have been trying to paint for 4 years. Somehow, you don't think black people, even in the inner city, haven't paid attention to what has actually come out of the mouths of Republicans for the past four years? I mean really? What did you expect? Did you expect people to forget so soon? I mean these people are not Republicans, they can't magically (conveniently) forget recent events.

blacks are not necessary, if a few fall into the gop lap the more the merrier but to contort the gop to make it more palatable to the majority of blacks is foolish. since most are simply not receptive to the message of hard work, personal responsibility and limited government involvement.

Yeah....and I could list a million other companies/universities.

BTW, Romney won the wealthy who I don't see how things would be "made" in this country without (yes, Obama won those with advanced degrees).

Umm, let's see...New Mexico, Texas, Vermont, Georgia. Why don't you look the figures up for these states? I think you need to look at high population vs. low population states more than blue vs. red, as well as where military bases are located, etc.
