The White Romney Vote: Based on Race? (Cover keyboard & monitor before reading)
The Root ^ | October 26, 2012 | Les Payne

Posted on 10/25/2012 10:00:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Blacks are accused of backing Obama out of racial loyalty, but white GOP voters get a pass.

Little about the GOP candidate appeared to qualify him for the White House as he sweated freely over foreign-policy debate questions Monday night. Clearly ill-suited to be commander in chief, Mitt Romney fidgeted in his chair, fudged his Afghanistan position and, in the cross talk over Iraq, seemed on the verge of proffering another $10,000 bet on whether his position had changed.

Despite losing two of three debates, Romney has going for him a poll-obsessed media keen on a close race sustaining their $2.5 billion flow of TV ads. Plus, he can count on reflexive support from the dominant population backing his party. And what exactly is the makeup of the GOP?

Alas, in this year of our Lord 2012, the Republican Party structurally is 97.9 percent non-African American, fielding only 47 blacks among the 4,411 delegates at its Tampa convention!

With blacks constituting some 13 percent of the electorate, the GOP, win or lose, is likely to register a popular vote that is 99.5 percent non-African American. And this near lily-white party operates in a diverse republic -- with a black president, who attracted 43 percent of the white vote in '08.

The pattern is no accident, for the GOP has been heading this way since President Johnson signed the 1965 Voting Rights Act...

Are whites voting against Obama chiefly because he's black?

Yeah, of course. Never mind that he's an America hating Marxist and a complete failure and pathological LIAR, who's an unfit CIC!

Les Payne used to work at Newsday. He got an affirmative action Pulitzer long before Obama got his affirmative action Nobel.

If the Republican Party is 97% non-Black, then whose fault is that? It’s not as if the Republicans refuse to let blacks join the party nor is there any discrimination in choosing delegates. The REAL question should be, “Why are Blacks 97% Democrat?”. It’s kinda funny that this question never seems to get asked.

What Payne-in-the-ass does not appear to mention is that Black voters are more likely to vote based on race than the average White voter.

If only 60% or so of Whites are voting for the White GOP candidate...and 97% of Blacks are voting for the Black Democrat candidate...logic would tell me that Blacks are the racists..as their pct of votes goes higher for the candidate of their race

Of course, it is a waste for the GOP to go after minority/race votes...because the overall pct of Blacks and Hispanics that vote is still quite low....compared to Whites

Hope someone will get this to Rush and the new media...

Once Obama is defeated ?

Watch and see, the main stream media will all of a sudden find religion.. even though it will be a fake kind of finding religion....
But let's relegate the main stream media to where it belongs... it belongs to the dustbin of history..

We have in Obama easily the most leftist president in American history, and the idiots in the Dem Party think if he were white, millions of conservatives would vote for him over Romney. I don’t know how someone gets to be that stupid.

And said to his Secretary, "By passing this bill, I'll have these niggers voting demonRAT for the next 100 years".

The old klucker knew his niggers.

Interesting. Dems construct the plantation, build the fences, aggressively pursue and condemn any black that strays from their plantation, but it’s the Republican’s fault that their constituency doesn’t include many dem slaves?

LOL

Les shows his stupidity by calling Romney unqualified while he is supporting the most unqualified president in the history of the world.

Obama doesn’t care about the livelihoods of all whites: whether poor, middle class or wealthy.

If you look at the whitest and poorest counties in Appalachia Obama wants to bankrupt the industry there. The EPA makes a rule that discriminates against Appalachia coal only. West Virginia mostly votes for the GOP presidential candidate. The Cap and Trade Congress members in the midwest and Appalchia got voted out.
