Those on the right seem to not understand that by insulting a whole group of people will not persuade them for voting for you. Yet by making comments like these expressed on this blog, you really want to argue that the GOP isn't full on racist.

Insulting a group is what those on the left and the demoRATS have done. They have told these people they need government to provide for them because they are too stupid to do it themselves. After 50 years of handouts they are still enslaved by the left. How many more years do you suggest working Americans support them and their own families?

You need to get a clue, unless you are one of those that has their hand out and are afraid you might have to provide for yourself?

That's the problem with the right, they always think that everyone is thinking the abhorrent things they are saying, but just not speaking it aloud. Nope. It's just you guys.

What will finally turn minorities to the Republican party is when enough racist, elderly, white people die off that the base of the party is no longer made up of voters who hate/fear minorities--which Republican candidates will then reflect.

In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: "In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man."

Obama appears to have held on to most of his percentage of the black vote from 2008 -- even though the black unemployment rate in October reached 14.3 percent. Emmanuel Cleaver, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus, admitted: "If (former President)...
