Posted on 07/07/2008 2:45:34 PM PDT by abigail2
Recent comments by well-known black Republicans J.C. Watts and Armstrong Williams that they're conflicted about the upcoming presidential elections and are contemplating voting for Barack Obama have sent shock waves through the Republican Party.
I'm hearing many black Republicans echoing similar sentiments. They say that because of the historical significance of casting a vote for the first legitimate black presidential candidate, they may cross party lines. These statements don't surprise me.

Just when you think you've heard it all. Sheesh.
I am a woman from California. I have spent my entire adult life voting against women from California. I vote for the candidate who best shares my values and so far no one who looks like me has measured up.
Better run fast or I’ll run over you...!
Black pride? Kind of sounds like the same reason that black jury acquitted O.J. It doesn't matter what they've done, or what they stand for, it's the color of their skin that gets the vote. As Donald Trump would say: Very shallow.
And therefore will unwittingly vote to invigorate Islamic Fascists who seek to destroy the United States of America.
and weak men who are ruled by their wives......
Instead of getting 10% of the black vote, we will get 2% this time. Whoop de friggin do!
It does. And just like Chas Wayne CT, I know whats up. We are going to have to win this one without a decent candidate. For the Gipper.
Blacks would actually be better off without Obama.
Well, maybe they changed their tune, Jesse is a stickler about his facts. I emailed them asking for sources...
I don’t know. I think they are pretty decent guys overall.
Isn’t McCain the first former-POW presidential nominee?
Why, race trumps the interests of the nation. Presuming these are conservatives, not liberation theologists in disguise.
These black Republicans give me the opportunity to say something nice about Barak, when it came to confirming the first black Secretary of State, he voted his, imo incorrect, view of America's interests, and voted no to Condi.
You got me.....
“...the first legitimate black presidential candidate...”
I am sick of Hussein playing the race card.
First , since his daddy was already married he is not legit.
Second as a biracial Aryan-Kenyan or possibly multiracial aryan-arab luo, he aint black.
third, there are more white liberals who get tingling down their “leg” than there are white racists.
fourth, there are far more (in both relative and absolute terms) black racists like rev wright and michelle than white racists.
J.C. Watts and Armstrong Williams are contemplating a vote for Stalinist style totalitarianism and Malcolm X style RACISM?
These black folks are not conservative Americans in the slightest.
If they say they are conservatives, then they are lying.
Louis Farrakhan gets along with his buddies.
The race less society MLK dreamed of was replaced by the multi cultural society of today. This is what you get.
A taxpayer voting for Obama, is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.....
