He's Back..."Colorblind" Herman Cain Plays the Race Card Banjo While Stumping to Republicans in New Hampshire
Like an expert at Three-card Monte or a proverbial "race pimp," Herman Cain expertly dealt from the bottom of the "race card" deck during a fund raising appearance before Republicans in Nashua, New Hampshire. There, Cain explained that white people should not have buyer's remorse over the election of Barack Obama, America's first black President. Instead, Cain suggested that (white) voters should realize that:
"...there are some people who will say,'I'm not going to vote for another black guy because this one didn't work out.' "And my response is,'Well, what about those 43 white guys you put in there? How did they work out?' "Don't condemn me because the first black one was bad."
The levels of hypocrisy demonstrated by Cain and his supporters in this moment are so glaring as to almost not merit comment for they are so utterly obvious. Presumably, Conservatives are colorblind. Yet, race is central--as it was in his minstrelesque CPAC speech several weeks ago--to Cain's performance. Again, Herman Cain suggests that he is "one of the good ones." Ultimately, Herman Cain is not like "those other blacks over there."
For a political ideology that ostensibly embraces individualism and rejects the politics of group identity, grievance, and victimology, it is ironic then that Cain has to signal that he is a different type of black man from President Barack Obama. That Cain needed to explain to a Republican audience that black folks are individuals, and not a nameless, faceless, horde of negritude that all walk lockstep like zombies is frightening to say the least--and a damning indictment of those that Cain would call political allies.

I'll ask you the the same question I have asked "real dumb".
Why should you pay a lower or higher tax rate than anyone else? You are special? You are better than the poor sap who busted his ass, produced?
Peace
I answered your extremely stupid question.

We all pay from the same chart.

Maybe, if you weren't so extremeley uninformed, you would know how that chart works.

If it doesn't matter why do y'all falsely attribute it to Lincoln? Why do y'all falsely attribute anything to anybody? Because y'all are so stupid if there isn't instant name recognition y'all don't know whether its a good thing or a bad thing and Lincoln just happens to be one of your favorites. Y'all do the same thing with communist rhetoric, it has to be Lenin, Marx, Stalin or a prominent Democrat saying it or y'all don't know its bad.
I didn't do any attributing. WTH are you mumbling about now?

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history--$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America's seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.
