We are not the party of affirmative action. Otherwise herman Cain would be the senator from Georgia. Turner? I wish him luck bt we shouldn't give him any breaks just because it would change the face of the party.
"We are not the party of affirmative action. Otherwise Herman Cain would be the senator from Georgia."
Herman Cain was BY FAR a better candidate than Senator Johnny Isakson---100% pro-life (unlike the "pro-choice" Isakson) and a strong proponent of Social Security reform and the implementation of a federal sales tax to replace all federal income, corporate and payroll taxes. Cain should have won, and he would have won on merit, not on affirmative action. Isakson won because (i) he had the Atlanta-area country club Republicans on his side and (ii) he had a HUGE campaign war chest, and spent it freely; being white didn't hurt, either.
That being said, I think Kaloogian deserves to represent the 50th District in Congress. Maybe Turner can run for the state Senate or Assembly and try again for Congress when Kaloogian runs statewide (or when another seat opens up).
