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.

Allen West, running in Florida, says the notion of racism in the Tea Party movement has been made up by the news media.

The House has not had a black Republican since 2003, when J. C. Watts of Oklahoma left after eight years.

But now black Republicans are running across the country — from a largely white swath of beach communities in Florida to the suburbs of Phoenix, where an African-American candidate has raised more money than all but two of his nine (white) Republican competitors in the primary.

Party officials and the candidates themselves acknowledge that they still have uphill fights in both the primaries and the general elections, but they say that black Republicans are running with a confidence they have never had before. They credit the marriage of two factors: dissatisfaction with the Obama administration, and the proof, as provided by Mr. Obama, that blacks can get elected.

Many of them have been attending tea parties. Where's the press?

Excellent news.

Hope they do well. This clown of a president is making black people look bad.

The press knows the truth: They are just white people who painted themselves with shoe polish to look black.

Nah, the press is too busy blaming Cheney and Bush for the oil spill. Seriously, an entire hour on it today on MSNBC, literally saying it was Bush and Cheney who chose to not spend $500,000 on a protective piece of equipment that would've stopped this.

They really said that. Then forgot to say that in 1.5 years, Obama also failed to take that step. Hey, it's the great one, the all knowing, all insightful one, right? So, he should've seen the moronic Bush mistake and immediately fixed that oil vulnerability, right?
