Skip to comments.Paul Ryan's Black ex-girlfriend bad for GOP, 2012 elections? (barf)

Rep. Paul Ryan's ex-girlfriend -- who happens to be black -- is the focus of a debate on whether race matters in the 2012 elections for the GOP. Who knew African American girlfriends from the past would become an issue of debate to measure Mitt Romney's running-mate's electability?
Monday, Keli Goff, the political correspondent for TheRoot.com, published a story that has ignited a discussion about race in America and if it is fair game during an election year. The post is titled, "What We Know About Paul Ryan and Blacks."
"For the record: No, I am not calling Ryan a racist. I am saying, however, that if you want to know where a politician's heart lies when it comes to a particular community, it may be best to look at that person's policies -- such as his or her record on civil rights -- rather than personal relationships," Goff qualifies her argument about Congressman Paul Ryan's ex-girlfriend.
However, a writer with the New York Daily News scoffed at the idea that The Root's writer would suggest that race has anything to do with the GOP candidate's political practices. Whether the talk is about African Americans, Latinos or any other ethnic group, he believes its a non-issue.
Derek Hunter offered this rebuttal:
"In this incredibly dumb piece, Goff asks the all-important (to no one) question, '"Is the fact that Ryan has dated interracially a noteworthy detail to consider when analyzing his politics and policies?
"The simple answer is 'no.' But to race-obsessed liberals the simple answer has no place in politics."

All I wanna know about her is whether or not she was hot .
I'm not calling Keli Goff a pedophile. He just needs to clear his name.
Democrats have always been outraged by miscegenation. To them, it’s one of the worst things you can do. Just ask Obama: he’ll tell you.
It wasn't in 2008, why would it be now?
For general interest and for moderators:
I’ve noticed the increasing appearance of “sleeper cell” posters in recent weeks.
Long term inactive or seldom active posters who are putting up stories like this.
Epic Dirty Sanchez.
Prayers for this woman for the character assault she is about to endure. I hope Ryan’s people help her out or have at least made overtures to help her deal with the slanderous presstitutes.
That pic is my check mate on the other threads I post at.
most leftists and communists have no idea about Obama and Hasan Chamdoo.
Didn’t Obama have a white girlfriend? Or was that a composite?
Blacks have much more issues with interracial dating than whites do...that is a fact
Black actors/singers like Jill Scott and Common have publicly stated they are against inter-racial relationships.
Of course, if a white person said such a statement, the Black Racists and White Guilt Liberals in the media would be whining 24/7 about it.
For the liberals to even mention it tells me that they have serious problems with it
Safe to say, that is going to happen as we get into political season.
If she were ever interviewed, she would be vilified for dating the “enemy.” Many Blacks seem more upset by interacial dating than whites.
Some say that Keli Goff has "dated" little boys. I disagree with those people, and am looking forward to Goff providing proof to the contrary.
Most of Baraq’s boyfriends were white....
There goes the Black vote!
This like this just make most people determined not to get involved in politics. Unless there was documented (AT THE TIME!) abuse who the frack cares about who someone dated when they were single?
This is not news, this is not even gossip, this is just plain stupid.
