    this thread is about conservatives vs GOP leaders. It is NOT a dupe thread. It resembles little the other threads on a major political news story

    Conservatives Attempt To Go (back to the future) Racist On Obama


    read the document: Conservative Political Play exposed


    THIS IS WHAT THE FORMER GOP CHAIRMAN TRIED TO PUT BEHIND. BUT CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL PLAYERS JUST CAN'T RESIST WHAT HAS WORKED IN THE PAST.

    RNC Chief to Say It Was 'Wrong' to Exploit Racial Conflict for Votes

    By Mike Allen
    Thursday, July 14, 2005

    It was called "the southern strategy," started under Richard M. Nixon in 1968, and described Republican efforts to use race as a wedge issue -- on matters such as desegregation and busing -- to appeal to white southern voters.

    Ken Mehlman, the Republican National Committee chairman, this morning will tell the NAACP national convention in Milwaukee that it was "wrong."

    "By the '70s and into the '80s and '90s, the Democratic Party solidified its gains in the African American community, and we Republicans did not effectively reach out," Mehlman says in his prepared text. "Some Republicans gave up on winning the African American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization. I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."

    are cons burying threads again? I found one, but it is an off topic thread about -- other than what you claim it is about.

    this thread is about conservatives vs GOP leaders. It is NOT a dupe thread. It resembles little the other threads on a major political news story

    Well according to many on the Right digging up stuff on Romney from the past was a sign of desperation, so recycling old material that didn't work the first time about Obama must mean something similar.
