Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

"And one more thing. Let's call them idiots for voting for Obama. They'll love that."
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus a short time ago at the RNC's winter meeting engaging in a little bit of what he thinks is voter outreach:
Priebus directs words to Pres. Obama, notes 'Hispanics and African Americans, who have struggled disproportionately in the Obama economy.'

Here's a newsflash, Reince: While it's true the African Americans and Latinos are have a disproportionate share of economic struggles, that's not exactly a new development. Yes, it's a major problem, but it's a problem with a long history and over the years, Republican policies have tended to make it worse rather than better. Blaming it on President Obama doesn't make Republicans look compassionate. It makes them look clueless—and willfully so. If they want to keep on losing elections like the last one, this is exactly the kind of thing they should keep on saying.
