If Romney were smart and thinking long term he’d get Allen West and a host of other conservative blacks on a tour of American cities. Get them on the Tom Joiner Show. Get them talking to black pastors about conservative issues that are points of obvious agreement.
We’ve got to cut into the urban politics of Democrats. We’ve got to liberate the plantations. We’re right and they’re wrong. Imagine Chicago going the way of Wisconsin. It would end their monopoly.
I think the Dems are going through a crackup and it’s an opportunity for us. If we can show blue collar Dems that we’re on the side of jobs and growth they’ll vote for us. Over time we can show them that socialism and government help cause great harm. Ignorance is curable.
If Romney were smart he’d make West his VP.
