Moran: GOP won in 2010 because 'a lot of people' don't want black president (BARF ALERT)
The Washington Post ^ | 2011-01-27 | Ben Pershing

Posted on 01/27/2011 12:41:24 PM PST by rabscuttle385

Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) is once again drawing attention for making controversial comments to the media, after the told the Arab television network Alhurra that the GOP won in November because many Americans don't want a black president.

In the interview, which has been flagged by the Weekly Standard and The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, Moran said that Democratic losses in the 2010 elections ...

... happened because of the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. The Civil War happened because the Southern states, particularly the slaveholding states, didn't want to see a president who was opposed to slavery. In this case a lot of people in this country, I believe, don't want to be governed by an African American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. That's a basic philosophical clash.

The people in the 8th District of Virginia want a wife-beater as a congressman.

He left the question of “why did they vote for him in 2008” for another interview.

Does Jim Moron not know that Obama isn’t up for re-election until 2012?

This was nothing more than an exercise in propaganda.

The country doesn't dislike Obama because he's black... we dislike him because he's Red.

The problem that Moran doesn’t see is that this guy may have ruined it for any other black to run for the Oval Office for a long time. Looking at who he surrounds himself with and the black caucus, would you trust them? Remember the old saying “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

The media equates love of the Constitution with this sort of defamation of character by characterizing both as "controversial".

Nothing controversial about this. Self serving lies are not "controversial". Smearing one's own countrymen to a foreign press is not "controversial", its contemptible.

When a senator does it it should be impeachable. Should be.

Oh so, I see:

We want Black athletes.

We want Black actors, erh, Halle Barry.

We will cry out loud for Colin Powell or Condoleeza Rice to run.(No more now that we know their positions)

We will elect blacks to the Congress or Senate.

But we have some weird glass ceiling for the Presidency?

Retards. We don’t even think of race until you bring it up.

Lamo’s. Why should ones race even matter?

It’s actually called a bad budget. When states are losing incredible employment, yet there is a demand for “green jobs”, where does the tax revenue come from? Of course one who justifies loads of national debt and stimulus spending would understand that (/Sarc)

The same people Congressman Moran believes do not want a black president would be the very first people to cast their ballots for:
1) Thomas Sowell
2) Walter Williams
3) Herman Cain
4) Allen West

Only the left see color...we conservatives see content and that’s what separates US from THEM...

You know, this gives rise to a riddle in reverse:

Q: If "Obama" is the answer, what's the question?

A: "What's black and white and RED all over?"

Moran’s one of the idiots from the occupied north. He’s our own version of Alan Grayson. Unfortunately his district is so infested with like-minded libtards, defeating him will be next to impossible.

And the problem with that is?
I mean, if Blacks can vote 95%+ for president because he’s black, why can’t other races vote against him for the same reason?

Personally, I just don’t like his politics.

I have said it before, I’ll say it again. For me, my disdain for President Obama has absolutely nothing to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with the content of his character. Isn’t that what Martin Luther King, Jr., dreamed?

The libs keep claiming this because they don’t want to deal with the actual issues. It’s easier to make outrageous charges against your opponent then to “talk turkey”, especially when you know you’ll lose any real debate.

You know, this crap really gets old...especially coming from a white man.

If you want to look for "obsession with color", look no further than the democrat party;

United Negro College Fund
Black Caucus
Miss Black America
NAACP
etc, etc, etc.

I watch the nightly news and the obsession with blacks from the media and liberals is astounding. I see them stick a microphone in the face of a homeless black man, barley sober enough to say his name, with probably a 3rd grade education and ask him what he thinks about things, like the "International Monetary Fund", or "Global Warming"...and if anyone - well anyone who happens to be white - challenges his answer, then all of a sudden the white guy is a racist.

They just can't get it through their propeller beanies that you can NOT like one particular black guy, or black group, without being a racist.

But the left is plagued with "groupthink"...individual opinion is our their circle of intelligence.

Anyone who tells me that being black is the only reason that I don't like obama, can kiss my butt. I would type the list out of what the commie bastard has done to our country, but the left would still say that I am a racist.

For their information, I hated the clintons too, and they didn't do 1/10th the damage to America that the Kenyan has done.

So Mr. Moron, or Moran, or whatever, take your race card adn shove it where the sun don't shine, because we don't accept them here.

CAUCUSGUY

It’s all they’ve got.

And, can you really blame them for playing the race card at every turn?

We’ve let it “work” when we shut up when we’re winning the debate and they drop the card.

Time for it not to work anymore.

I don’t like him cause he’s a commie — not because he’s black. Heck, I could think of several black Americans I’d rather have in the White House. Real leaders, not some radical fraud who jived his way to the top. I grew up in the NYC area in the late 60s and 70s. I know his type. He was the guy on the street manning the three card monte table. The guy who used to get away with lying before the age of the internet. Back then no one would know you had a fake ID or SSN. Now it’s catching up to him. Just a matter of time.

Not only that....those who did not vote for him would have gladly voted for Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, or numerous other Blacks, if they ran. It has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with failed, evil, Marxist ideology which wants to create a serfdom with all Americans being non-thinking serfs.

You hit on something else in your post as well - the goals of the elitist left.

They seek a society based on neo-feudalism.

They will be the nobles who control every resource,
while the peasants must subsist on the noble’s lands
and live and die at their whims.
