GOP's strategy to reach new Black voters

More: http://bossip.com/768665/race-matters-desperate-gop-party-struggles-with-new-strategy-to-reach-black-voters-with-new-director-of-african-american-communications/

The Republican Party’s post-2012 introspection has focused principally on America’s growing Hispanic population and how the GOP can capture larger percentages of the Hispanic vote, but Republicans aren’t sitting back on their heels when it comes to other groups that conservatives have traditionally struggled with.

African-Americans turned out at the polls at much higher rates in 2008 and 2012 than in previous elections. As Jamelle Bouie writes, President Obama’s vote margin in Ohio “can be explained solely by higher black turnout.” And while it’s possible that this could be due to the historic nature of President Obama’s candidacy, the Republican National Committee sounds like they’re treating increased participation in the political process by the black community as a permanent trend.

This week, the RNC brought Amani Council on board to be Director of African American Communications. “It’s a new position,” Council tells Townhall. “I’m not filling anyone’s shoes. I’m basically going out to get African-Americans engaged on a level which they haven’t been in a really long time.”

"Jim Porter elected as NRA president, replacing David Keene"

Alabama attorney Jim Porter will be the new president of the National Rifle Association, CNN confirmed Wednesday.

Porter is set to take over for outgoing president David Keene on Monday, when his two-year term expires. The leadership change coincides with the NRA's annual meeting, which kicks off Thursday in Houston, Texas.

"At this stage in the NRA's history, Jim Porter will be the perfect match for president," Keene told the Washington Times' Emily Miller, who first reported the news. "As we are likely to win most of the legislative battles in Congress, we will have to move to courts to undo the restrictions placed on gun owners’ rights in New York, Connecticut, Maryland and Colorado."

Ron Paul slams 'military-style occupation' following bombing

More: http://www.mediaite.com/online/ron-paul-slams-military-style-occupation-following-bombing-more-frightening-than-attack-itself/

Ron Paul, the former Republican congressman from Texas, penned a piece on libertarian writer Lew Rockwell‘s website today about the “military-style occupation” that took place in Boston following the bombing. Criticizing the “unprecedented move,” Paul suggested that occupation was as frightening — and perhaps more — than the attack itself.

The “forced lockdown,” “militarized police riding tanks,” and “door-to-door armed searches without warrant” were not, as Paul wrote, from “a military coup in a far off banana republic.” The scene took place in Boston after the recent attack — a taste of martial law.

The World According To Reagan

Is it true that former presidents become more popular the longer they're out of office?

I remember hearing this in a POSCI class once, and that had me thinking...would more people really start to approve of Bush ll the longer he is out office? On one segment of The Cycle less than an hour ago, they mentioned his approval rating being somewhere in the mid 40s now. Considering how much he raised UE and how he had the country fighting in two pointless wars, I just find it incredible that his approval rating is even that high less than 5 years after leaving office.

What are everyone's thoughts?
