1. Will he kiss RushBo's ring? That's the true test of an RNC Chairman.

3. I have a feeling you are right but boy I hope he loses. I hate
dumb ass people like Steele. How you can be in a party that fucking hates you is beyond me. Blackwell's speech about needing someone who inspires "hope" is laughable! They are shit...all of them! They better consider their kkk constituents and what they want! I'm sure they don't want Steele!

11. We in Maryland had to deal with his baffoonry for 4 years!!
He got his ass thoroughly kicked by a no-name congressman from Baltimore named Ben Cardin. Cardin kicked his ass. Steele tried to use the black leaders across the state to make it seem as though he was a Democrat. They all rejected him. On election day, he committed fraud by hiring homeless workers from Philadelphia to post misleading flyers all across Baltimore City that told blacks to vote on Wednesday instead of Tues. He is the most slimey, disgusting asshole ever. The Republicans still haven't learned their lesson.

25. UUUGHH! What an asshole!
I'm glad he got his ass kicked big time. I have to mute the tv when he is on. I cannot stand that guy. He is slimy and disgusting. I hope he gets his ass kicked this time as well but I think he's going to get in there. I don't think he'll be able to help them out much.....they are not going to work well with that jerk.

oh well..before i could finish this the sonavafuck won. ick

35. Not to mention he campaigned as a "Steele Democrat" during his Senate run.
I hope the DNC makes hay with that.

44. Yes he did. He tried to play the black Democratic leaders in the state
He also engaged in election fraud by hiring homeless people from Philadelphia to hand out false flyers in black neighborhoods giving the wrong date for the election. This is indeed a sad day. I have the deepest hatred for this man, as do very many people here in MD. Just when we though we had gotten rid of him, we'll have to put up with on all the fucking Sunday punditry shows.

4. Black Republicans...
should be an oxymoron.

Steele is another half-baked house negro. I've got no use for him. He wants to lead the party that wouldn't have given him the right to vote. What an ass.

non-whites present. No joke.

19. The Republican Party WAS the party that supported right to vote for African Americans
They backed and pushed for the amendment to the Constitution for "negro suffrage" in the 1800s.

Both Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr, were Republicans

Democratic Party was the home of segregationist Dixiecrats until Democratic Party developed more ideals regarding equality after WW Two. The old time segregationsists started leaving the Dem party and eventually fled after Johnson rammed civil rights legislation through Congress.

Reagan opening courted the the right wing segregationist types.

Parties changes over time.

26. Not entirely true.
http://flprogressive.blogspot.com/2008/07/simply-disgus...

In "The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.," which was published after his death from his written material and records, King called the Republican national convention that nominated Goldwater a "frenzied wedding ... of the KKK and the radical right."

"The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism," King said in the book.

In a statement released through the King Center, Martin Luther King III said, "It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest that he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."

I know all about the history. Let's talk contemporary history so my point doesn't get clouded.

31. You have absolutely NO grasp or understanding of history
The Republican party of Lincoln is NOT the same Republican party that we have today. King was a Democrat. (Remember, there was a partisan realignment in the 1930's under FDR and many Republicans became Democrats.) Democrats of the 1960's who were opposed to the Civil Rights Movement (a la Strom Thurmond) became Republicans. LBJ predicted that Democrats would lose the South for generations to come because the Democratic party supported rights for blacks.

Lincoln was a Republican, and in those days, Republicans were like the Democrats are today...they were federalists or unionists. Lincoln favored abolition, not necessarily becauase he opposed slavery, but because he wanted a unifed country. King, like most blacks in the 1960's, was a Democrat because the Democratic party (minus the Dixiecrats) supported civil rights.

37. I retracted on MLK (see above). Everything else I wrote is documented. Parties change over time.



Incidentally, I prefer to discuss without making person attacks or casting aspersions.

41. Good job. I hate it when Republicans talk about being the party of Lincoln
They would have opposed everything that Lincoln stood for. And I absolutely cannot stand it when the suggest than Martin Luther King, Jr. who supported gay rights, and was a champion of the poor, was a Republican. He was not. I get very heated on those suggestions. Everything else you wrote was correct. I think we are experiencing another partisan realignment in the country and Americans are moving slowly to the left. Those Reagan Democrats who proudly voted for Reagan and the Bushes have returned to their roots. It's going to take longer in the South, however. They still can't get over the fact that the South lost the Civil War.

8. It sounds like he's going to win, so how is the "base" going to
respond to THAT? I knos I live in Ga. and although I'm an old white lady, I also know that almost all of the pubs here still are racist as hell! And when I say the pubs here, I'm talking about almost everybody!

I can't tell you how excited I was back when Howard Dean was running, and I found a meetup group near me that were his supporters. They were all great people, but although there were several hundred of us, that's a drop in the bucket compared to the opposition!

We're still a group, though a bit smaller, and we all voted for Obama, but you know how THIS State went!!!!

10. That's why they can't win.
If they pick Dawson, they get slaughtered by the (liberal) media, but might very well please their base.

If they pick Steele, they get praised by the (liberal) media, which will only infuriate their racist base more.

:rofl:

28. EXACTLY!! And there was not ONE woman--NOT ONE--being considered as a
leader of the Repuke party. Palin was used as a puppet, a pawn, then thrown under the bus when she didn't work out.

34. We never do. But shockingly, there will always be those black conservatives
and Republicans who buy into the propaganda. They are often worse than white ones. Gay/lesbian Republicans are the worst of all. I will never understand it as long as I live.

21. Women didn't fall for the Palin stunt, so why should Black voters fall for the Steele stunt?
The thing about Steele is he plays it cool and smooth, yet he sits in for Hannity and you wouldn't know the difference.
