    Angry What to do when the people you dismiss, Kick Your Ass…

    We didn’t think they’d turn out more of their base vote than they did in 2008, but they smoked us,” said one Romney operative. “It’s unbelievable that that they turned out more from the African-American community than in 2008. Somehow they got ‘em to vote.”

    Here is the thing that Team Mitt and Team Wingnut failed to understand: that when you insult folks and dismiss them, they tend to get mad and they tend to want to kick your ass.

    Mitt and the Wingnuts have run a four-year campaign that is only a blond hair’s width away from calling the President a $#@! every single day. They are focused like a laser beam on promoting white rage and using every dog whistle they can think of to get the message across.

    White folks heard them and so did people of color. Team Mitt is surprised that African-American turnout increased over 2008, but that is only because they are incapable of thinking of these folks as people.

    As I knocked on door after door in a black neighborhood in Columbus, it was clear that folks heard the Mitt/wingnut code-talking and that it pissed them off. They heard the endless disrespect of the President and the general contempt for anybody who is not white that has become the core message of the modern conservative movement. They heard it and they decided to kick Mitt’s ass in the voting booth.

    Mitt’s “Vote for me, I’m white” strategy made my job of getting Obama supporters to the polls really easy.

    Cigar as usual you are up to your race-baiting games again. I do hope for your sake that one day you finally grow up.

    "African American", "$#@!", "People of Color", "Black Neighborhood", "Vote for me, I'm White"...

    You Libs are trying really hard to turn this country into a racially divided one, aren't you, Ciggy?

    You know what? It's working. Studies have shown it's working, so why don't you try to be a little more subtle about it?
    Government cares about people like fishhooks care about fish.

    Cigar your class is showing and it's low. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I can promise you; not threaten you; that that's the last thing that I ever worry about, and I can promise you; not threaten you; that no one on this forum would ever say that to may face ... even if I gave them the precise coordinates of where I am for then to do so.

    So really ... that's something neither of us have to worry about.
