It is also past tense, and now Obama is POTUS until 1/20/17, so why are you saying "it IS stupid", as IS does not denote past tense?

Voting for Romney was voting to go back to the Bush policies that caused the massive downturn in the economy in the first pace, and what caused the fact that we were losing 700-800k jobs a month when he left office.

You mean the same way you and other conservatives were "blinded" when you reelected Bush? In my opinion I think the people who voted for Bush both times are stupid..

I've said it before, if you want to improve education you have to start in the home. The best way to fix what ails the black community is to figure out a way to get the black father back in the home.
Well with the rise of single moms in all racial groups, I don't think having fathers in the home would put a dent in the problem, since many women are now having babies without the father in the home by choice.

What I know is that Rick Perry was calling for the repeal of the Voting Rights Act. Why would I vote for someone who wants to repeal the Voting Rights Act.

I am really laughing at you. Since when blacks had the opportunity to vote for color when it came to the president of the United States? It was only 2008 and then 2012 where in the first and second time in our nation's history, blacks could vote for a black man over a white man. Hummmmmmmmmmmm?

You are absolutely right. In fact, blacks are actually decreasing in number, and the percentages as of 2010, are down to about 10%.

Conservatives are complaining about African-Americans, calling them dumb for voting for President Obama. Some conservatives are calling African-Americans dumb because of their voting choice. With conservatives saying things like this, this only alienates African-Americans from the Republican Party. When are soem conservatives going to realize this?
