So far all they seem to be doing is digging a bigger hole. They continue to alienate large swaths of minority groups. It’s almost as they can help it. I don’t think they know how to reach out to minorities. To do so the GOP would have to embrace a moderate platform they hope will be seen as more inclusive of the changing demographics of the American electorate at the same time not appearing as simply a token effort.

If this is the Republican idea of reaching out to minorities, Rand Paul would not seem to be their ideal choice.
Watching this meathead squirm in front of these students was amusing. Still it had its benefits. Paul got to meet actual black people, and they got to see what a lifesize bobblehead looks like.

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference."

Most blacks voted for obama because he looks black and they assume they could trust him more than mccain who after today is a much bigger RINO than yesterday...like hippo size.
Blacks also threw MLK's Content-of-Character wishes out the window because b. h. obama is a self serving bag of manure and a despot...Many blacks are seeing that and know they have been played for fools as economic woes are very high in the da hood and getting worse.
Yepper the democRat Party has been trying to scrub there filthy racist past clean but it's infused to their sorry behinds. With media help they can only point fingers at Republicans while pretending to be so awfully good. Frankly a black voting for a democRat is like Jew voting for a nazi...That should be a bumber sticker.

Attention you bloated wolf tick!!! Yepper Rand Paul should have changed his cadence like the whitebread democRat duo algore and hilliary. It was really funny watching those two buffoons going black just to save their lily white behinds from an azz kickin..."I AIN"T NOWAYS TIRED." ROTFLMAO. "THE POWER OF THE GLORY" ROTFLMAO...priceless, scooter.

The liberal way to reach out to minorities was to hang them, burn crosses on their lawns and vote against their civil rights and the right for them to vote. Bribery and Plantation fodder is all you have given them today, they are the same as they used to be, dependent on the plantation and the white man for their daily bread.

You want me "baned"? Is that good or bad?
