Someone sent me a link to this YouTube. Obama now has a "Join African Americans for Obama" campaign. Does anyone see this as strange and walking real close to being racism?

If Romney would organize or promote a White Americans for Romney campaign - I would never vote for him. What is the deal with this country and racism - we are hopelessly locked in on the subject - especially it appears Obama

I know some of you guys barbecued chicken on the grill today, but I never mastered the knack for it, so I stuck with Johnsonville cheese brats. A guy has to know his limitations. :)

I tried the Johnsonville cheese brats this week. I wasn't a huge fan. The meat just tasted plain to me, it needed either some salt or some spice. I do love a good brat and a cold beer though.

Any suggestions on a good brat that is a little spicier?

if the chicken sticks, try some Pam on the grill and make sure the grill is hot. Don't move the chicken until the skin is fully carmalized where it touches the grill. it's tricky and takes experience to get the timing right.

Sometimes I think I use too much charcoal heat. I'm wondering now if it's better to grill chicken at a lower heat for a longer time frame. Oh...and if anyone has a suggestion for a good barbecue sauce, I'd appreciate the help. Something that would enhance both the white meat and dark meat. :whistling:

If whites voted as obediently as African Americans apparently do based on the race of the candidate.....

What would happen? He would win.

I'm betting you'd never vote for Romney no matter what he does or doesn't do.

Obama is a racist, so he does things like that.
Romney is not a racist, so he doesn't need to do things like that.

I don't understand people, why is it ok for one race to do something and not another. If they can have an African American group, I see no problem with whites, or any race doing it.

All things being equal, you'd be right. But things are not equal. Minorities seem to have an additional right to be racists, that the majority does not have.

Sarah Palin brought exactly nobody to the election table. She was a conservative, family-values, good-ol'-girl who held no appeal to the independent voters that McCain needed in order to have a chance to win the election.

No conservative would have voted for Obama in 2008.

No African-Americans (or very few) would NOT vote for Obama in 2012.

Pandering to the most loyal voting bloc makes zero sense - for either party.

Similarly, what votes is Obama trying to attract by calling on his loyal constituency?

Where have you been Little Orphan Annie. VP choices have always been for political reasons out side of priciples. Do you think JFK chose LBJ because they were buddies and on the same page. How about Teddy Roosevelt, or Harry Truman, were they picked because they were in sync with the Presidential candidate?

Obama may be concerned that too many blacks just won't vote this time.

The last election they were excited and rallied around the Democrat's nominee of color. This time isn't historic, and blacks may realize their personal lives are no better, and may be worse, than it was before the first 'black' President.

Not really. I have mentioned her quite a bit in the past, mostly because I see her as one the more intriguing barometers of the conservative political landscape. She rose from complete irrelevance, became a national media sensation, and profited immensely from a nice rack.

All that aside, I haven't mentioned her in a while, for the very reason you mention.

Why mention her today? I think the political parallels between her VP nomination and 'African-Americans for Obama' is 'slap-in-the-face' obvious.

I don't know. "complete irrelevance"??? She was a state Governor, in Alaska, she was pretty relevant.

She seems like a nice enough lady to me, and she is helping some good candidates get a shot at winning. Ted Cruz, hopefully the next Senator from Texas to be elected is one.

I thought by referencing VPs who became Presidents, even though they were quite differentfrom their Presidential running mates it would serve to point out that VPs are chosen to appeal to groups from which the Presidential candidate needed to get support from, or that, Like Biden, they would at least be "harmless" I guess I shouldn't rely on history to make a point, it's a foriegn Country,

Sarah Palin appealed to conservatives. McCain had those votes in his pocket. He made a bad political choice.

Perhaps Obama is not making a mistake in this case - but it seems pointless to me. He needs to convince the middle class that he's been good for America. Which is exactly why Romney is talking to the middle class.

The way I remember it, conservatives were happier with the ticket with Sarah on it.

It didn't work out, but they were running against the rock star, with the full support of the MSM and SNL. After Bush, the republicans were a longshot at best.

McCain is not a conservative.

I was, for the first time, going to vote third party, because I was so disgusted with the Republican Party when McCain became the nominee. Only because it was so evident that Obama is an America-hating Marxist, that I voted for McCain.

I worked with several young engineers at the time who were more Libertarian than Republican... big Ron Paul supporters. These guys had no intention of voting for McCain or Obama. Only after McCain announced Palin was his VP choice, and reading about her, did some of them decide to vote Republican in the 2008 general election.

I voted for McCain because of 'Not Obama.' Just like I'm going to vote for 'Romney the RINO' because he's 'Not Obama.' I couldn't care less who his running mate will be.

Someone who is on the fence might look to Romney's running mate as the tipping point for their vote.

It baffles me that the VP choice would influence anyone's vote given that the VP has no power and the choice is completely symbolic. I guess a lot of people are easily fooled.
