Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.)

Looks like a play for power using the black vote in the Louisiana Senate race. If I was in their position I'd sure play that card.

He didn't appoint any blacks to truly significant positions in his cabinet (like a certain current President I could name), just used them and abused them.

Um, Jocelyn Elders anyone?No thanks!!!

Seriously, are you serious? Maybe I should have said "significant blacks to truly significant positions......"

Lol.... All that talk about the Republican "house negroes", who actually get appointed to some of the most important and powerful positions in the land. All the while the Democrats demonstrate their "celebration of diversity" by keeping black people far away from any real political power.

No, I'm an equal opportunity conservative. I have no use for any black liberal, or any white one for that matter.

Clinton did appoint Ron Brown to Secretary of the Treasury ... for what good that did for him...

I thought Ron Brown was Secretary of Commerce under Clown Boy. Secretary of Treasury was Robert Rubin.

Blacks who want to participate have to go to the GOP.

You got THAT right! J. C. Watts held a leadership oposition in the House of Reps. and look at Bush's Cabinet!

the Congressional Black Caucus wants Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.) to replace Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.)...now we will see affirmative action parasites start feasting on their own. Replace the white gal with a black guy, it doesn't get any better than this.

And don't forget....there is a litmus test for ALL positions in a lib/dem administration - they must embrace the practice of killing pre-born babies.

I find fascinating the degree to which abortion has really become the glue that holds the whole Democrat party together. Without that issue they'd probably lose half their voters and three-quarters of their contributions. Sometimes I think it's the ONLY thing that keeps suburban whites in the Democratic fold.

There have been a lot of times that I've debated self-proclaimed moderate Democrats on politics and after some discussion I'll discover that they don't believe in socialist economics, believe there are too many restrictive government regulations, and they think the Republicans are better at foreign policy. But they won't vote GOP because they are afraid that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Some of these people have been women who claim they would never have an abortion themselves, but they believe in "choice." Pretty much all of them are people who really don't care about the erosion of rights that are actually in the Constitution, like the 2nd Amendment.

The slavish devotion to that one issue just astounds me. What kind of worldview leads a person make the continued legalization of infanticide the number one item on their political agenda?

You nailed it - there is a worldview that drives it. See I John 5:19.
