Rendell spokesman says GOP has `Jim Crow' attitude
The Times Leader ^ | 10/29/08 | unlisted

Posted on 10/29/2008 12:30:54 PM PDT by Harry Wurzbach

The head of the county bureau of elections hasn’t encountered any suspected voter registration fraud, but allegations in other parts of Pennsylvania have sparked a lawsuit and a verbal exchange between a state official and the Republican Party.

The Pennsylvania Republican Party filed a lawsuit to assure the vote count is accurate – a move that Gov. Ed Rendell’s press secretary described as a “Jim Crow attitude.”

State GOP Chairman Robert Gleason said the action was taken to question the validity of some new registrations – most of which were gathered by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

Luzerne County Election Bureau Director Leonard Piazza said he has not noticed a significant number of registrations from ACORN.

I’ve been telling folks from day one Rendel won’t support Fauxbama, other than token backhanded type. He has no desire to see Fauxbama in the White House.

Let’s see, here I am as an undecided white middle class voter, which construct sounds more logical: Republicans=racists, or Democrats=socialists. Gee, that’s a tough one.

LOL...Fast Eddie must have forgotten that Jim Crow was a friend of Southern DEMOCRATS. Unfortunately, many ignorant voters in the ghettos don’t know that either. The Civil Rights Act of LBJ’s day would not have passed had not Republicans voted for it, and this is the thanks that the party of Lincoln gets.

I don't think there's any doubt. Maybe he's trying to get GOP turnout up to 100%?

Error. Error.

The DNC is the party of slavery, Jim Crow race repression, lynch mobs, fire hoses, race obsession, ethnic politics, collective politics. Its who they are.

I don’t blame them for trying to re-write history; if that was my history I’d try to re-write it too.

We’re the good guys. We’re the guys who believe in color-blind citizenship. Thats where we were during the bad old days and its where we are today still. If thats where you are, you’re either a Republican or you’re headed our way.

First Obi said they cling to their guns and religion. Then Murtha called them racist, and then Eddie said the people at the McCain rally were are poor and paying attention to the wrong guy.

Now the GOP has a Jim Crow attitude?

I’m really starting to think that the dems in Pa are working for us on purpose. Or maybe they are really that stupid?

Obviously they are trying to. The only theory that would make any sense is that they are trying to drive up black turnout and turn off suburban Republican moderates to the GOP. But the level of this rhetoric is such that conservatives are going to show up in droves, if they weren't already, to vote down Obama.

I'm not sure if Murtha is aligned with the Clintons. He's just a buffoon, so who knows? But Rendell is definitely a friend of the Clintons, and a sharp politician, and he knows if Obama loses Pennsylvania then there's no realistic way Obama's going to win. You don't say things like what Rendell & his camp have been saying without some premediation. Naturally, the hard left in the party agrees with it all so they are none the wiser.

“Rendell spokesman says GOP has `Jim Crow’ attitude”

Oh, really? You want to start tossing names around, you fat, corrupt SOB? OK, you started it:

Ancesthntr says that Obama and the Dems have Hitlerite/Stalinist attitude. Note the lack of quote marks.

1. Obama is dirty/corrupt, because he’s taking illegal (foreign and fraudulent) campaign contributions:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2118541/posts?page=1 THIS IS THE BIGGEST STORY OF THE CAMPAIGN, FOLKS:

Read the comments – lots of people with specific knowledge of credit card transactions confirm the purposeful fraud.

Here is a PARTICULARY damning article:
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/10/adolf_hitler_donates_to_obama.html

2. Obama’s redistributionist philosophy/plans are anti-American:

http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2008/10/redistribution-is-antithetical-to.html

3. If you dare to even question the Obamessiah, you get your privacy violated with extreme prejudice, legalities be damned:

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2008/10/021908.php Smearing Joe the Plumber

Can we as a nation survive the Presidency of a candidate who would cheat, would invade the privacy of an ordinary, simple plumber who “dared” to ask an inconvenient question, and who does this in order to implement extreme and transparently anti-American policies?

All of this corruption, smearing, arrogance, etc. WHEN HE HAS NO POWER!!! What happens when the power-hungry SOB gets the entire power of the US government behind him, and a compliant Congress to give him what power he doesn’t already have? For the first time in my life I FEAR a Presidential candidate. I am TERRIFIED of the potential here – and I’m beginning to understand some of what my family in Russia at the time of the Revolution, and in Poland as Hitler rose to power and began conquering nations, must have felt.

Hey, Fat Eddie: FU and the horse you rode in on.

NOBAMA because he will disarm the USA, and let the commies into power.

From our friends at the NRA!

About GunBaNObama.comBarack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history. Senator Obama says “words matter.” But when it comes to your Second Amendment rights, he refuses to speak honestly about where he stands. In fact, Obama hides behind carefully chosen words and vague statements of support for sportsmen and gun rights to sidestep and camouflage the truth.
But even he can’t hide from the truth forever … his voting record, political associations, and long standing positions make it clear that, if elected, Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history.

GunBaNObama.com is designed to bring you the truth about Barack Obama’s words – words like these:

“Do you support state legislation to … ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.” (Independent Voters of Illinois/Independent Precinct Organization general candidate questionnaire, Sept. 9, 1996
“I’m consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.” (Chicago Tribune, April 27, 2004)
“I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities and that our leaders must say so in the face of the gun manufacturers lobby.” Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope (2006).

It's incredibly stupid to make this a racial thing in PA, as the white ethnic Democrats in Philly will ditch the Dems. Which is what Rendell seems to be trying to do.

Rendell defeats Obama in PA, sets up Hillary for 2012, and there's a ready made excuse for Obama's loss in PA: the GOP is racist. Also it will make the case that the Hillary camp made in the primaries which is that Obama would not be able to connect with working class white Democrats.

Rendell just poured jet fuel on that fire. Don't think that this guy is just saying stuff, like Murtha. Rendell's statements aren't by accident. He's trying to stab Obama in the back.

Why would anyone vote for the Democratic Party?

DEMOCRATS: Supported slavery
REPUBLICANS: Abolished slavery

DEMOCRATS: Created Jim Crow Laws
REPUBLICANS: Abolished Jim Crow Laws

DEMOCRATS: Voted barely 50% to pass Civil Rights Act of 1964
REPUBLICANS: Voted over 80% to pass Civil Rights Act of 1964

DEMOCRATS: Continue enslavement via the narcotic welfare plantation for votes
REPUBLICANS: Color blind and judge people by individual merit and effort.

The Democratic Party has a horrific history and continue that record even today.

Exactly. Of course, Rendell knows this. He's positioning himself to be Hillary's veep or a member of her cabinet.

The Jim Crow laws were the invention of DEMOCRATS. Blacks had civil rights under Republican Reconstruction. DEMOCRATIC politicians took those rights away. See e.g. Senator “Pitchfork Ben” Tillman.

My fellow citizens voted Fast Eddie Rendell into office, and he immediately raised the state income tax. Shades of Obama to come, little taxes everywhere will just start going up. Rendell even wants to sell off the PA turnpike to foreigners who will then rake in toll money for themselves. Rendell cannot find enuf things to tax to support all the state jobs.
