    they talking about a totally different Republican Party. That was the old Republican party.

    They did well with blacks getting a 1/3 of the vote, until Nixon start doing the Southern Strategy. Whenever Nixon was down South, he started talking out the mouth spewing disgusting rhetoric like that hypocrite Strom Thirmond and that flaming racist Jesse "Senator No" Helms.  But anywhere else he didn't talk that crap.

    Bless Paul's heart for going there in the first place. But Repubs have a history of trying to whitewash history. Like they do with Reagan, and try to forget all the bad stuff never existed. I won't be surprise if they act like they never heard of they Southern Strategy. If that's the case then why they feaning to have blacks in their party, and almost doing happy dances when guys like Tim Scott gets elevated to the Senate, and killing themselves to portray Rubio as the savior of their party?
