If he runs again for state senator, he will have a huge obstacle. Opelousas is 69 percent black.

Inspiring for sure...my only question would be what took him so long to see the truth?

Some would say better late than never, I would say better never late.

I hope he has a strong political activist group that can convert a lot of his constituents before the next election, or maybe he is ready to retire, and thought better of being identified with unprincipled commies as he finishes his life.

Just wondering...has anyone ever met you lofty standard?

While we're at it, can your life stand up to REALLY close scrutiny?

Obama will bus 100s of freeloaders into his district to vote him out. Watch. This is the new fascism.

Perhaps I should have used the /s tag on the better late than never quip...what lofty standard are you talking about...I said the man was inspiring.

As to standing up to scrutiny...by NSA standards no I wouldn’t stand up, probably I would be considered a tea party terrorist, under the standard of a patriotic American, yes I will stand to scrutiny.

Thank you for posting this.

Sometimes I feel like we are living on that planet on Star Trek where those aliens created the illusion of beauty when those people were actually horribly disfigured.

The demoncraps have succeeded at creating the illusion that hope has only one meaning and that is that Obama is our only savior.

We need some anti-demoncrap phasers set to eliminating all the bull.

Black conservatives already know why he’s a Republican. The question is, why did it take him so long to wake up? Perhaps now you understand why enlightened blacks have so much contempt for the low-information parasite class that makes up a significant percentage of the Obama Cult. And make no mistake about it, it really is a cult.
