    is the Republican Party's only rule of thumb...since they cannot gain outright majorities with their nutty positions alone...they are always seeking to divide and conquer...they'll try women (portraying Sarah Palin as the savior of all of those "victimized" Democratic women who supported Hillary Clinton; trying to tell African-Americans that their votes are being taken for granted; telling Hispanic Americans that Democrats are a threat to their strong traditional family structures and values; and, yes, pretending to be the "real" supporters of Israel and attempting to create the illusion that the President is anti-Israel or something.

    Thank you for not allowing yourself to be used (or is that misused) by the Republican Party as yet another propaganda tool. That's all they want people for.

      women voters so much that they could garner enough votes to get elected. They're trying the same thing with H. Cain, any black man will do well against Obama, who is after all, only half black - hence Cain's elect a "real" black man statement.

      They really do believe women and African Americans cannot discern the difference. Shows just how much they don't know about the electorate in this country - they really do think we're all stupid.

      The GOP won that one, with dog-whistle racism that continues today and tends to turn off blacks, Hispanics and Jews.

      So they won't win this one.

      A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
