    As the Tea Party fortunes rise, more Black Republicans are running for office then ever before, totally destroying the "Tea Party as Racists" narrative.

    Dems have so little to be happy about, they're bitter, frustrated clutching their "The Audacity of Hope" and looking for a coffee party and now Black Conservatism is on the rise. Umm umm umm, ain't that something!

    Obama and the Dems have outed themselves as Marxists, full-throated "From each according to their means, to each according to Obama" Marxists and they are getting kicked to the curb in record numbers in November.

    But for Gerrymandering Dems would easily lose over 100 House seats and the only safe Senate seats might be in NY.

    "Among the many reverberations of President Obama’s election, here is one he probably never anticipated: at least 32 African-Americans are running for Congress this year as Republicans, the biggest surge since Reconstruction, according to party officials."

    Of course, the Times get its wrong, it's not Obama's election that's inspired people, it's the drive to get our country back from the Marxists

    to give the tea party credit for this is a stretch...there are numerous other factors, obama winning is one and i believe the liberals lies about all the racism, the constant race card has backfired...i said this almost a year ago

    and viola, yurt is of course right :cool:

    The old political science model was that the Dems need not pander to minorities because they will never vote Republican. But people are not single-issue voters or party flaks all their lives.

    Older, more established people -- of all colors -- have a tendency to be as concened about such things as fiscal responsibility as they are about social justice issues.

    Yanno the old saying:

    If you are not Liberal in your youth, you have no heart. But if you are not Conservative in your maturity, you have no brains.

    No one is ever a Liberal after getting their first pay check.

    I was. Many might say I still am. For me, the watershed moment was holding my baby for the first time. The Earth tilted and suddenly I saw Law and Order as somewhat more important than say, Ending Hunger.

    I don't think people's values change all that much as they age...but their priorities sure do.

    No doubt Republicans would welcome Blacks with open arms.

    Or is that open fire?

    They sometimes confuse the two.

    As long as we get the best people, who cares what color, creed, gender they are? Good grief.

    Those Black Republicans are token black politicians, they will never get it right with black voters so they're not likely to succeed. The Tea Bastards have nothing to do with the rise of black politicians.
