This is a significant development. Haley Barbour seems to have a bright future.
Mike Espy, huh ? Sounds like a lot of disgruntled rodents in MS are ready to declare him an honorary White man for leaving the plantation. More to the point, I think Espy wants to do the smart thing and be on the winning side. He has more to gain from doing so. It’s too bad we can’t get more of the Black community to see it that way, it would be a lot better for them in the long run not to keep all their political eggs in one basket.
Blacks have been very slowly creeping our way.
VP Steele in ‘08?
Michael Steele, Ken Blackwell, J.C. Watts, or Herman Cain would be fine.
I have been saying this for months. Add Barbour and Santorum ( just to piss the Dims and RINO’s off ).
Find out more about Peter Pace’s non-national security platform and he maybe the best pick of all.
