    Do you want a job or do you want a handout? Basically comes down to that IMHO.

    Steele is absolutely correct. I have long been a critic of the Republican Party's lack of action with minority voters. I'm not talking about the "Republicans are racist" bullshit, which is just that, bullshit. I'm talking about the GOP not taking the time to invest in minority communities politically, get involved, and help them learn and understand how conservative views on education, economics, and personal accountability and responsibility are one's best way to overcome poverty and dependence.

    Instead, Republicans just ignore them for the most part and view them as a lost cause politically and so Steele is correct, blacks have almost no reason to vote for them.

    You mean you want blacks to learn white male conservative values well let me tell you something, with the exception of economics all those other "conservative" values are preached by black churches, so Republican white male conservative values need not be taught to blacks. Your reasoning is just as much at fault for a lacks voters, you don't go to people acting as superiors talking to inferiors.

    Bullshit, there were a lot of minoriy people who thought they were going to get loads of money and assistance from the Dems when Obama got elected. Maybe they don't expicitly sayso, but that's the message that most people get.

    Geez, Bass, where've you been? Have you not seen the calls by Obama to pay off student loans, pay off underwater mortgages, give free healthcare, raise taxes on the rich and redistribute it to everyone else? The man is perpetuating a welfare state, there's no incentive at all to get a job when the gov't has you covered.

    Explain exactly how you would try to educate minorities and make them understand that they can do more for themselves than government can when we have liberal programs enticing them to run to government dependency. We have a lot of liberals in schools teaching them that they are victims and that society owes them.

    So, some are faulting Republicans for not successfully combating the crap that the left has taught for years.

    "Conservatives believe that the people are sovereign, and that the government is subject to the will of the people. Liberals believe that the government is sovereign, and that the people are subject to the will of the government."

    iberals could stop teaching minorities that they are helpless idiots who can't do anything without government.

    And why do we address groups differently to begin with? If people of all races have decided that government knows best, it'll be hard to turn that around. Republicans address everyone as 'fellow Americans'. Leave it to some to say that isn't enough and we need to divide and speak in a different manner to each group.

    What are these liberal programs that encourage blacks not do for self? Hell out of here with that racist BS, just admit the GOP isn't offering anything we aren't already doing for ourselves.

    Like this guy?
    Artur Davis switches from Democratic to Republican party - The Washington Post

    Why should the GOP play Me-Too to traditional black voters? They have limited resources that are better spent on energizing the base, as well as reaching out to Asians.
    George Bush appointed more blacks to his cabinet than any other president. And all he got was "George Bush doesnt care about black people" from the likes of Cognac West.
    The GOP is the party of Main St, of people who want to build middle class and upper middle class lives for themselves and their families. They attract anyone who shares those values, regardless of race.
    The traditional black voting block is only interested in the politics of grievance.

    Oh, seriously? Everything from increased welfare 'entitlements' to the Community Reinvestment program that forced banks to make risky loans to certain neighborhoods. They know that a lot of people don't have enough education, experience, credit rating or ambition to rise, so they force others to lower the bar to accomodate them. People, all people, need to understand that they have a lot of control over their lives and they can do well if they try.

    Do we need liberals forcing employers to hire people based on color? ?Do we need liberals lowering the bar so people don't have to try as hard? It's the left that constantly addresses minorities in a very condescending way and promises to pick up the slack because they don't believe people can succeed otherwise. They take away a person's desire to make difficult decisions and take personal responsibility for their actions by constantly making the safety net more attractive. So, people don't think it's necessary to strive for certain things, like finishing school, staying away from drugs and not having a lot of children they can't support on their own. They know they are covered and there is no consequences that will cause them any hardships. Somehow the liberals think it's bad for anyone to go without anything, even though need is the driving force for many to get out there and work and do things for themselves.

    There is never any reason to separate people into groups, then address each one and make certain promises to some and not others.

    We should all be treated the same by any politician. It's not that government doesn't do enough for some people. Problem is people don't do enough for themselves. What has the left done for minorities, other than to separate them and encourage dependency by making them feel like victims. And now, Republicans are being chastised for helping to enlarge the liberal plantation.
