Throughout the nation there are going to be thousands more people enrolled in Medicaid and every state except one is going to have to come up with matching money," Graham remarks. "I have 12 percent unemployment in South Carolina. My state's on its knees. I have 31 percent African-American population in South Carolina." Linsey Graham


I know we have problem when white folk call out what we see for ourselves! Would it have been better if Graham was black?? He's still telling the truth! But now he's racist!! Did you see that clip? We are proportionately the biggest drain on social assistance systems! And if you think black folk won't be line up for miles to get FREE HEALTH CARE you are out of your mind! Obama Money !! Obama Health 0care!! It's all free! Keep us depending on the government!

We will indeed impact his state!

And there are some blacks who involve themselves with tea parties and I know some black conservatives who like Sarah Palin. I didn't think she was the best choice for McCain but I agree with a lot of her views.
First I hate welfare it should be stopped completely. It has destroyed black families. Public housing a waste of good land. Racist dems wow they must be well hidden since all dems need the black vote. Poor taste, this man blames the HC problem on your race and all you can say is poor taste. He represents all that the conservative party is,they think," Blacks and Latinos are the problem, if we could just get rid of them. Thats what you want to be a part of be my guest.

No i'm not black either.

NV , Clinton also got 90+% of the black vote too.
But 36 years ago there weren't as many whites who wanted to vote as people suffering from "white guilt". Blacks didn't elect Obama, they only contributed some votes and maybe enough to stop a tie for the popular vote. Nope, it was whites that elected the man and I really don't blame them for voting as they did because they felt guilt for something, and felt it was time for a black President, no matter who he was. I would have been very happy to vote for a number of blacks who were Dems but not the one that was running.

There is no way that Thomas Sowell could ever agree with the Obama administration about much of anything. The man is so far above most of us in his field that none of us can touch him. Of all the conservative thinkers I have to go along with him as the number one man.

Okay...now that you've told me about Sowell....did what he said make common sense???


See we never listen to what is said, simply because we hate the messenger.

How do you know that for sure? All the whites are covered?


And he's not blaming all the state's problems on blacks! But Graham surely knows where most of the government assistance in his state is going, at this point in time! To blacks!

We don't want anybody to call us out! When Cosby called us out, he was called a Tom. Blacks have ana unwed mother rate of over 70 PERCENT!!! Young black girls with 2 or 3 babies.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS???? Federal assistance!! Food stamps....welfare!!! No insurance!! No fathers!!

Graham is saying..."LOOK...it's already bad for black folk in my state!" When this health care hits, they will indeed line up (just like the Obama Money women in Detroit) and suck the money right out of the system.

We are so PC, we just won't call it like it is!!

Same could be said about whites or men or women. How do you take the voters seriously when the most important topic was the economy with an overwhelmingly percentage being against the bailouts yet most of the vote went to the pro bailout candidates Obama and McCain?
The lessor of two evils is still evil.

I love it when someone says something that is as VAblkconservative said "in poor taste" (that's putting it mildly) its immediately defended as being anti-PC. There's a difference between being politically incorrect and being ugly or if we're in the business of calling it like it is, racist.

This is southern racism at its most beautiful and eloquent state. He didn't say anything that was remotely direct or even rude. He threw in that one piece of data and moved on. So one has to read in between the lines.

So translation: Dear Nebraska you are an overwhelmingly white state so you can't possibly relate to the problems of my state. Because only black people cause any problems and of course you know all 31 percent of these South Carolinians are poor none of them actually have educations and work for a living because that's not what black people want to do.

If he had thrown out a statistic about the poverty or just stuck to the high unemployment rate then it wouldn't have been an issue, but no he had to go there with race.
