    Maybe we can get an itelligent conversation in before the haters get the thread shut down.....or maybe the haters can just take a break for this thread.

    Rush said this yesterday, in his show....

    .....You can see the trend lines, but you're scared to death to take this away from Obama because he leads in delegates; and you're really frightened that you are going to lose the black vote, perhaps permanently, if you take away the nomination. It must be apparent to you that Senator Obama will not lead you to victory. You have to know this. But you fear that denying him support will create a permanent fissure between black voters and Democrats. No Democrat has the courage to examine this flawed premise. It is up to me to advise and address you superdelegates to consider some facts. President John Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy wiretapped Dr. King. Black voters stayed with Democrats. Democrats stood in the schoolhouse doors vowing, "Segregation forever!"

    Democrats voted against landmark civil rights legislation; Republicans passed it. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Bull Connor was a Democrat. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Democrats created the welfare state, destroying millions of black families. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Democrats bent over forward for the teachers unions, ruining public education for generations of black kids; leaving them unequipped to participate as equals in American society. Yet! Black voters stayed with Democrats. Democrats urged the early release of criminals to further prey on law-abiding black citizens. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Democrats threw blacks under the bus during the immigration debate. After Rosa Parks finally moved to the front of the bus, Democrats threw blacks under it during the immigration debate because Hispanics are now the largest minority voting bloc. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Democrats have not supported blacks achieving power.

    Carl McCall was running for governor of New York, and was denied funds from Terry McAuliffe at the Democrat National Committee. This audience contributed to McCall's campaign. Civil rights icon Maynard Jackson wanted to be head honcho of the Democrat National Convention. He was denied. Blacks stayed with Democrats. Earlier this year in Selma, Alabama, Mrs. Clinton shows up; mocks the way black people speak. Her husband, Bill Clinton, the reputed "first black president," shows up in South Carolina and plays not the race card, but a whole deck of race cards! (doing Clinton impression) "Obama? Ha! Of course he gonna win. I mean, it's like Jesse Jackson. I mean, he's the black guy." Blacks stayed with Democrats. You superdelegates in the Democrat Party, you're worried about denying Obama the nomination because you fear that your black voters will abandon you permanently? Come, come! Review your history with me once again.....

    Is he correct in this ? Has the black vote gone to democrats to their own detriment ? Or is he maybe over-playing this angle ?

    Rush is absolutely right on this one. Liberals have kept blacks uneducated by opposing school vouchers, created an atmosphere of economic dependency via increased welfare, and insulted the worth of blacks' indivudualism with affirmative action and yet they still recieve a monolithic black vote.

    Well, I completely agree with the spirit of the monologue, I think some of the items would be a little hard to absolutely prove.

    And let's not forget that in the eyes of many NAACP types Bill Clinton was the first black President. :rolleyes:

    I think it's really cool that the dittoheads donated to Carl McCall's campaign. I didn't know that. Say what you want about Rush, he is a world-class prankster. I mean, the dem leadersgip must have been fuming......

    Do you have any input on what I posted up ? I was hoping we could address what he has said.

    I'll tell you a few of the reasons Mr. Limbaugh has zero credibility, and why I discard him into the same trash heap as Ann Coulter and others...
    1. Had his housekeeper chasing after his Oxycontin
    2. Called 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton "The White House dog"
    3. Said Michael J. Fox was faking his Parkinson's symptoms
    4. While working at KFBK, read names of gay men who died of AIDS followed by applause sound effects.

    I'm going with Limbaugh on this one but I think he misses the bigger picture. Statists, democrats, republicans whatever prefer a dumbed down and disadvantaged population. It makes it easier for the state to control us.

    I think and I'm not trying to go off topic Bro but Limbaugh would do us all a big favor if he'd just come clean with us and tell us what government "the state" really is and how it works instead of dragging us all into the tiny gears of the system at work.

    He should be enlightening us to what the machine is actually producing instead of entertaining and dividing us with this kind of stuff. You know kinda like what Ron Paul has been doing....for years.

    Personally I don't care what Rush does for recreation anymore.

    I have to agree with the points made by Rush. Regardless of whether you believe he is credible or not, because of his shortcomings, you must agree with the truth of what he said. Unless, of course, you are ignorant or a liberal Democrat.

    I'm sure Rush is correct about Obama or Hillary getting the black vote in Illinois because of Chicago (which I have long believed should be a state in itself). [​IMG]

    I don't think I've ever been afraid of an election like I am this one...

    I looked and looked, and cannot even find a rumor mill that supports this. And I have to say it doesn't sound like something he would do. I have seen you stretch the truth, and say outrageous things about people you don't like. I think that's the case, here, and I would like to see some proof of this accusation.

    Just like a typical liberal, MP will make up lies to propogate the liberal agenda. The truth doesnt matter. What matters is how many people will believe the lie before it is exposed.

    Yup. And like a typical liberal, he can call Limbaugh a pig, but Limbaugh can't call Chelsea a dog.
