Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) who is in a tight race for re-election (as are a whole etouffee pot of Democrats nation-wide) has revealed to the world that the reason her campaign is in jeopardy is because of … racism. Oh, and sexism.
“I’m going to be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.
“It’s not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place, so we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that.”
Bobby Jindal, the Indian-American governor of Landrieu’s Louisiana might disagree.
Nikki Haley, the Indian-American and female governor of South Carolina might disagree.
Tim Scott, the United States Senator from South Carolina (appointed by the above Nikki Haley) who is about to win election by a landslide, might disagree.
But, Democrats aren’t accustomed to the truth, particularly when it comes to people who disagree with them. So, rather than facing the fact that people don’t like their ideas, they make the excuse that it’s not the idea that’s flawed, it’s those who challenge the ideas.
Mary Landrieu has been a solid Democrat and Barack Obama supporter. As with the other Democrats who are scrambling this election year, that association is a major reason for their likely defeat.
Why is that?
So, conservatives, Republicans, free speech advocates, vocal moderates, anti-communists, anti-socialists, pro-lifers, anti-big government apostles, low tax proponents, constitutional purists, Second Amendment supporters, believers in the Fourth Amendment, Ninth Amendment backers, those who believe in a strong defense, people who want stricter immigration laws and the enforcement of them, you who want government accountability, anyone who cares about mounting government debt, citizens who demand control over their own health care decisions, Americans who want the Department of Justice to be a department of JUSTICE and not political witch hunts, all of you who believe members of Congress should be held to the same standard of conduct as everyone else, voters who think Representatives and Senators should read bills before voting on them, capitalists, folks who believe one must show proof of citizenship and residency before being allowed to vote, anyone who believes golf is a recreational activity and not part of the presidential mission statement, whomever considers a president making a national issue of a college football players sexual orientation distasteful and wrong, pro-Israel backers, believers in the Ten Amendment, those who DID build that, Americans who don’t believe we have anything for which to apologize, the anti-bailout people, those who are committed to the idea of personal responsibility, citizens who think constitutional checks and balances don’t provide for White House “czars,” free market exponents, the unemployed, you who do not want union thugs and officials in positions of power in our federal government and anybody who worries about the radicals with which the President of the United States has surrounded himself – admit it.
It’s all because he’s black.
