    With the polls as tight as they are, what do you think the odds are that Romney (or his Super PAC) will do what Hillary did in the 2008 primaries and try to make white people scared of the black boogeyman? Obviously it didn't work out too well for Hillary, but that was with democrat voters only. Also, since Obama is already president this time around, it sort of undermines the racist fear strategy, at least a little bit. But still, if Obama starts to pull away in the polls, it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see Romney pull a Hillary.

    Thoughts?

    As black democrats were handing out Vote Black buttons during the DNC convention, no one has to make up any boogeymen about them.

    I think it's about as likely as me going home and lighting my hand on fire.

    They dont have to. the color-blind crapfest that is our economy right now is more than enough to provide fodder for the upcoming media blitz.

    You can add in the "regardless of ability to pay" abortion thing in your more socially conservative areas.

    Hillary was horribly treated. She had her delegates, the the DNC ordered those delegates to switch to obama. Then to make sure Hillary would not be heard, didn't have a roll call to elect but announced obama's nomination by acclaim. To add insult to injury, Hillary had to bite the bullet and announce the acclaim just to try to bring the party together.

    Pull a Hillary? Ever hear of the GOP Southern Strategy? :laugh2:

    the GOP already plays on racial fears of whites.
