he didn't have to play the race card, the GOP has been doing it for nearly 50 years. It's called the Southern Strategy.

You mean this Southern Strategy from the dems?

The Relentless Conservative: The Democratic Party's Two-Facedness of Race Relations

Remind me which dem pres it was that said "I'll have those ________voting dem for the next 200 years."

Yes, as we've seen, courtesy of the Pinellas County dem chairman, it's all pretty insincere. And that's why Charlie plays the race card, a little weasel lashing out because his lollipop was taken away.

Now, if you want to argue that all this is dem retaliation against the repubs for the civil war, I'm listening.

"The made him look like Mr Rogers" Yea ok, nice rewriting of history from you opinion piece. Fine, but I guess you don't know what the Southern Strategy is.

The repub Southern Strategy is way older than 50 years. Try adding 100+ to your time line and then we're getting somewhere.

My point is, you can't throw the race card in today's racially charged environment and expect diversity to work, especially when the economy is in the crapper for the majority of citizens. Do you know that if this had happened in Britain, Charlie would have been jailed? It is against the law in Britain to engage in any public speech that would incite racial animosity. And in the UK, this law is enforced equally among the races and ethnic divisions. (well, most of the time).

Mind you, I wouldn't want to lose our freedom of speech here. But that's what happens when you throw the race card. And that's why the weasel has ticked me off.

I mean, remind me again how long Charlie was a Republican. All of a sudden Republicans are racist and that's why he left the party? It's such a blatant lie, anyone in Florida knows he got primaried. And that's my point.

Cool!



We can get you to vote for our republican rejects just by changing their label!

OK, now we'll give you Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorem, and Ron Paul.

Go ahead and elect them!



Please don't throw me in that briar patch.



Hey, if all the RINOs replaced all of the Democrats, and if the Tea Party took over the GOP, we'd all be a lot better off!!!

2016 Ted Cruz/Rand Paul GOP vs Mike Huckabee/Herman Cain (Dem, ex-GOP) would be a can't lose, might win bonus!

I'm hardly peeved and there's no discussion to define. The rant ran it's course and the logical progression would be related topics, such as his opponent. But of course there are those who only "toe the line". It would seem the present crop of conservatives have raised the practice of finding fault to a high art, while offering no solutions or alternatives. Have a good day.

There's always the option of creating new threads instead of hijacking existing threads.

Kind of like creating wealth instead of confiscating wealth: work instead of welfare.



But Charlie Crist is a racist, because he uses the race card to call others racists when he gets challenged by a Hispanic.
And when he claims Obama is above criticism because he's black.
Aren't blacks good enough yet to be held to white standards?
Not for race-card wielding racists like Charlie Crist, who will soon announce that genealogists have just discovered that he is 1/64 black Seminole.

Why? What kind of discussion can you have if everyone's of a like mind? If I had prefaced my comment by climbing on your I hate Charlie Crist bandwagon, and then added that Scott is no better, would that have met your requirements? I can honestly that I don't particularly like or trust Crist, but then again, I feel the same towards Scott. That's my point.

While I did not hear the direct quote , we seem to have a problem with vocabulary, bigotry - intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. The OP calling it the race card most likely plays to his own feelings towards race relations. I am a liberal, I vote democrat even if I dont agree with a lot of their economic policy, I however detest the bigotry that I feel I would align myself with if I voted republican, I am for women's rights, gay marriage, I dont hate the poor, I dont care of to count how many times people go to church or dont go to church, I dont want to force anyone to do anything they dont want to do based on a book that I like. So if I say i would never vote republican because of their bigotry I dont mean they hate black people, so its in no way a race card whatever that means.
