...the more they stay the same.
A booth at this weekend’s Texas Republican convention sold buttons asking, “If Obama Is President…Will We Still Call It The White House?”
The company that makes the buttons boasts providing “Patriotic and Republican Products.” (I wonder which one this button represents, Patriotism or Republican values?) Another button they sell features a picture of Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), with the phrase: “Life’s a b**ch, don’t vote for one.”
The Republican Party could put a stop to this but as long as it generates money and support all you will hear is meaningless comments like, "That's not right," "How unfortunate," and "Tisk, tisk, tisk."
I have a white friend who is a republican. He always says, "I don't understand. Blacks are very conservative on a lot of issues: abortion, strong law enforcement and religion. They echo the Republican values. I don't understand why they don't become Republicans." To my friend, after 400 years African Americans know where they aren't welcomed.
McCain talks about a better way, but to me it still sounds like the old way.
What do you think?
