<quoted text>ofcourse I'm upset romney lost wouldn't make to vote for him if I knew he was going to lose but if you want to belive Barack Obama got 95% of the black vote because of his policies and not because he's black then just look at how many black people voted the last two elections and compare to previous elections. Maybe if they came out in these numbers in the elections prior to Obama maybe bush wouldn't have served 2 terms and thing would be a better for all Americans.
I'm not mad at you, and I'm not your political enemy...other than this issue here...we probably agree on more than we disagree...

I just feel blcks are now, simply doing what whites have done forever in this nation...in as far as the past...and that is voteing for 'their own'...as illogical as that may sound by todays standards...

I think if Obama had been Clinton running for a 3rd term...he probably would of gotten even more of the blck vote...so i still think it has more to do with being a Dem...than it does with just color...

I always had the idea that there was something sneaky and rotten about Boehner. He had way too many excuses for blocking the SAVE act from coming up for a vote all last year. Now it's becoming clear that he's a neocon, illegal alien lover. And Hannity, forget about him. He's Ruppert Murdocks butt boy. You know everything that idiot is going to say before it comes out of his mouth. People like this are what has killed the Republican party. That party had better take a hard look at its defective leadership.

All I'm saying is if Ronald Reagan was blck, and sported a Afro back in the 70's...he would of never made his parties nomination...

So this idea that 'blcks' only vote based on skin color...and that 'whtes' do not...is a dishonest suggestion...

And it would work if the do nothing politicians in Washington had any balls to enforce the current immigration laws!
The Republican party is in serious decline because of their bufoon like leadership. John, lets do an amnesty, Boehner and Mitch, bugeyed globalist, McConnel....really? Of course the super neocon, Sean Hannity and the mental cripple Charles Krauthammer are both cheerleading. That is when they aren't trying to see which one can crawl further up Murdocks neocon globalist anus.

Then why fight for civil rights if all you're going to do is the same thing that you're bitching about others doing?

I disagree with you. Blcks vote because of "color". Some blcks think Obama represents their color/Civil Right,etc., but also some blcks refuse to accept the fact that Obama does not really represent them(the Blck American) and can not possible relate to the struggles they endured yesterYear. You have to remember also that the problem that Blcks demonstrate/have is that they will and always will blamed whites/others for everything and anything (their own bad decision in life) regardless and also they fail to understand that Democratic Party are the same ones who fought their hardest to keep them down in the first place. Having said that, blcks will vote and most have voted for the Democratic party because they have been taken care of from birth to grave with hand-outs.So you see the Democratic Party have trained them/taken care of them/appease them/pander since way back when. This is a complex issue here, but the bottom-line : Blck America are pandered to(and they know this) by the Democratic Party.I hope you understand my point here if not when i get bk I will explain better.

I don't think so voter fraud is more like it. No one gets all the votes that's impossible considering the fact that the popular vote was so close nation wide. It's voter fraud and racism and you know it.

Uhh, actually no, I don't know it and no it's not "impossible".

I hate to break it to you but it really wasn't that close.

Romney and his supporters bought into his own hype and it turns out that's all it was, hype.

You know you this b/c you identify with Blacks so much you understand their whole experience? Yet government figures show that Whites not Blacks make up the bulk of clients on these public aid programs; a fact that dispels the notion that Blacks are scheming for a free lunch courtesy of the American taxpayer. Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below the poverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.

The Civil Rights movement grew out of the church and a need for full civil rights for black citizens. Much of that movement became focused on developing political power so that blacks could participate in the government that was setting public policy that would affect them. Many of those campaigns by black candidates were rooted in the idea that racism had prevented blacks from holding certain offices in the past. Many of those campaigns were rooted in bitterness towards a system that was color conscious.

So, most elected blacks have come from primarily black districts. Why are those districts primarily black? Because of housing segregation that has been outlawed, but whose remnants remain today. In an odd sort of way, this discriminatory pattern created opportunities for black politicians that the racists who presided over it did not anticipate. So, America has created all of these distinctions and differences that have led us where we are today. You sound like a fool that has not had much life experience outside of your little white bubble, it has not benefited you at all.

But I still think it came down to 'class' and 'perception'...

Regardless of color...in the end, I just don't think most voters felt a wealthy, business class type was looking out or their best interest...

When your at home starving, and your family is starving...Sean Hannities rhetoric and preaching will not feed you...and I think that's what it came down to...regardless of color...
