I love it...listen to these fine, upstanding Republican words:

" 'There is "no Coleman Young machine. No Kwame Kilpatrick machine. There is no Dave Bing machine,' he said.'There's no machine to go to the pool halls and the barbershops and put those people on buses, and then bus them from precinct to precinct where they vote multiple times.

'And there's no machine to get 'em to stop playing pool and drinking beer in the pool hall. And it does make a difference.' "

Great news for Dems, who need to broadcast this far and wide. This is what your basic Republican and Teabagger thinks of you if you're a poor person, a person of color, a person without influence in America.

You're a 47%er to them, and will never be anything else.

Comments such as this, as well as Coulter's assault on Hispanic Americans, will help the Dems sweep Congress in 2014. Don't say you weren't warned, GOPers!:)

People say things behind closed doors that they hope don't get out. Really, like Kwame and Coleman never dissed a white man? The voting machine was not as strong in Detroit this year. That's a fact. Did Romney believe his demeaning 47% quote. I believe he did. Actions and statements have consequences. If you don't mean it, don't say it.
