Sort of like Bush suddenly becoming not a Republican because he was the worst president in 80 years.
I never cared for Bush Sr. either but I didn't care for Michael Dukakis either which Mitt Romney reminded me of Michael Dukakis but I don't care if its Republican or Democrat from Massachusetts the party affiliation means nothing in Massachusetts.

Right...

What part of 'both parties have changed over the last fifty years' did you not understand?

Except if you are talking numbers of persons of color, it hasn't changed.

I wonder why? Republicans bragging that voter registration would deliver swing states to the Republicans and by 2012 the number of blacks in the GOP was around four percent.

One two three four. Four percent today.

The GOP: party of Strom Thurmon.

You prove your opinion you got from someone else by copy and pasting a third party and that's debate?

Right.

The "new left" doesn't exist and was never part of the Democratic party.

"The Democrat Race Lie": Has the Democratic Party always been a party of good?

Basically, I'm getting beat up pretty good about LBJ and how he was a racist (even though he signed the Civil Rights Act) and FDR's internment camps (for the Japanese-Americans in World War II).

It's the usual "all Democrats are liars" stuff from the uncle.

But in a way, it's a good question.

How can the Democrats lay claim to being the party of civil rights, women's rights and all that good stuff for over 200 years? Did they really do that? Or is it just hyperbole?

I have a Facebook argument awaiting me. I await your answers and assistance!

ADDENDUM:

My friend also used this article as proof that Democrats were anti-civil rights until 1996:

Funny how so many people who (say they) don't believe in God go so far out of their way to demand others prove that their is a god.
And insist that other s believe as they do.
Funny how you put the GodBots and the NotBots in a room, no one can tell them apart.
Not unlike the Cheronians.
Always looking for a way to twist someones, anyone's words so that you can stay right where you are...latched onto your absurd beliefs that have zero ground and zero true faith. If they did you wouldn't be so bothered by those who believe differently. You will never learn.

What I like is being able to take EXACTLY what someone has said - exactly- so everyone can see it.

What the NotBots like to do is take some of the words I say, twist them around, put them in a quote, and say it a quote of something I mean to say.

Funny how that is...

Review: Macmillan was the unanimous choice of the sitting Conservative cabinet; he was duly appointed the new PM.

It came up during the argument where I said the Queen appointed the UK prime minister.

You are aware that the UK prime minister is appointed by the Queen?
