Black Voters Will Help White Democrats

The latest media mantra is that blacks will decide the election with their massive turnout.

And of course black voters have not problems voting for white candidates — as long as they are liberal and not running against a liberal black candidate.

The Washington Post explains:

Black Turnout Could Decide House Races

Obama Poised to Help 10 White Democrats

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Daniel Miller weaved through the pews at Lewis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, past the ladies in their Sunday hats and boys squirming in their suits, and headed for the only white face in the crowd.

It belonged to Larry Kissell, a Democratic candidate for Congress…

Kissell is one of at least 10 white Democrats in white-hot competitive U.S. House races who are counting on a surge of black voters to carry them into office. Most are challenging incumbent Republicans, and they are central to Democratic hopes of picking up as many as 25 additional seats, strengthening the party’s control of the House.

Many of these races are in Southern states where African Americans make up a sizable minority. But the dynamic is also at play in such states as Maryland, Ohio and Connecticut.

As many as 70 percent of voting-age African Americans could cast ballots on Election Day, said David Bositis of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, who studies black voter patterns. That number would far exceed the 56 percent who voted in 2004 and bust the record for black participation set in the 1968 election.

There is a certain irony in the pivotal role that blacks could play in congressional elections, given how some of the districts were drawn, Bositis said. “When these districts were designed, certain assumptions were made about what black turnout would be so that the district would pretty much favor Republicans,” Bositis said. “Now, all of a sudden, you have an election . . . where African Americans are enormously excited and mobilized. Not only that, you have the Obama campaign going out of its way to make sure these voters are registered and are going to turn out.” …

A hint of how Obama might affect congressional races came during a special election in Mississippi this spring. In the contest to fill a vacancy in the 1st Congressional District, Republicans tried to link Democrat Travis Childers, who is white, to Obama, as a way to turn off white voters in the conservative district. Instead, black turnout doubled in the two counties with the largest African American populations and Childers won

As of last Wednesday, with the aid of Obama’s field organization, Democrats had expanded their voter-registration rolls in North Carolina by 277,246 this year, compared with a GOP registration gain of 57,514. For the first time, North Carolina will allow same-day registration during an early-voting period that began Thursday and ends Nov. 1, giving campaigns yet another chance to identify unregistered voters and get them to vote

You see, the racism in this election is not coming from blacks.

Heck, they have no problem voting for whites. In fact, they will power the Democrats’ overwhelming majority in Congress.

That and all the new voters who have benefited from the new law voter registration and voting rules.

Isn’t that wonderful?

    Maybe we can get them to get the dead honkey vote down here in the south if they do the, “CHITLIN CIRCUIT.” I live outside “Fatalville” and I can’t help but notice that they didn’t mention that after the HO DOWN they had here, obamy went to a diner and was shaking hands and grinning ‘for the photo-opts. This lady in the diner refused to shake the messiahs hand and called him a “Socialist” among other things. She didn’t call him that…..she yelled it!! Well, you can imagine the uproar from the democraps over this!! He went to a BBQ joint and ordered “chicken”. DAMN YANKEE!!!

    I can’t help but think of the script from ‘Stripes’: ‘Black guys, help the white guys!’

    And Colonel – and didn’t that set off a fight?

    I am suspecting that these idiotic stories are to convince the masses that Obama is a shoe in as are the 250 seat majority in the House stories – probably to get worse since Obama can’t get above 5 points above McCain and appears to be losing ground in OH.

    If Gore & Kerry can’t close the deal with a double digit lead – Imagine the desperation and sweat these people are feeling with Obama not able to even secure a double digit lead.

  4. wardmama4 says:

    This just in Chuck ‘You’ Schumer just announced a 300+ Electoral College win for Obama, who still hovers at +5% over McCain.

    A dead heat and yet Obama is going to get more than 2/3rds of the EC votes – I wonder how ACORN is going to pull that one off.
