    Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012

    Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012

    Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama's campaign.

    "We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

    "In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted.

    Cleaver said they would not tell pastors which candidate to support. They will let them know who to regard as the bad guys, though (hint: not Democrats). "We're going to talk about some of the draconian laws that have cropped up around the country as a result of the 17 percent increase in African American votes," Cleaver said, describing voter ID laws as a form of Jim Crow-style "poll tax" on seniors and black voters.

    The CBC chairman is confident that "President Obama is going to get 95 percent of the [African American] vote," and wants to keep that turnout high. "We want to let them know that there is a theological responsibility to participate in the political process, at least in the Judeo-Christian tradition," he said.

    Jeez! This is the most racist thing I've heard yet from the "Communist Party" I got news for Holder and anyone else involved in this United Nations take over of America, Black Americans don't like being lied to either. And who are they going to believe Obama, or their own two eyes?

    No surprise that Cory Booker defends capitalism

    "Decades ago, Winston Churchill observed that "the inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." His words apply well to the choice in the 2012 presidential election.

    Note, for example, how the young black Democratic mayor of Newark, N.J., Cory Booker, was strongly repudiated by the Obama campaign, including the president himself, when he insolently suggested that Bain Capital, the investment firm once headed by Mitt Romney, might actually do positive things.

    Booker, an Obama campaign surrogate, went off script on "Meet the Press" when he refused to justify a campaign attack ad depicting the evils of Bain. "I'm not about to sit here and indict private equity. ... Especially that I know I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital."

    This was more than insubordination to Booker's campaign handlers. It was unmitigated heresy, driving to the core of the Obama campaign message. The narrative, telescoping the theme of four years of this presidency, is that the American economy collapsed because of unbridled capitalism. To recover, the narrative continues, we must allow all-knowing, all-powerful, compassionate political leadership in Washington to rearrange the American economy and make sure businessmen never steamroller Americans again.

    But Booker, educated at Stanford, Oxford and Yale Law School, is a new breed of young black politician -- the kind who is actually trying to make a difference. And he is too close to realities on the ground to deny the truth he sees."

    I suspect that Romney will also attend the NAACP and/or Urban League conferences as well.

    Romney going after African-American voting bloc?

    "Just a few weeks ago, the media thought that Mitt Romney would have so much difficulty uniting Republicans that he’d have little time or resources to attempt to expand the GOP reach. Today, though, two pieces from the Washington Post suggest that Team Romney feels strong enough to go after the most loyal demographic of the Democratic Party. First, their latest poll results show that Romney has solidified support among white working- and middle-class voters, especially those who feel left out of the economy:

    In an election year in which the economy ranks as Americans’ top concern, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney holds significant advantages over President Obama among white voters who are struggling financially and buffeted by job loss, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    Asked which candidate would do more to advance their families’ economic interests, middle-class white voters who say they are struggling to maintain their financial positions chose Romney over Obama by a large margin — 58 percent to 32 percent.

    The former Massachusetts governor has a similar advantage on this question among white voters who have lost a job in recent years, or who have seen a family member or close friend face unemployment. …
    The results underscore a continuing challenge for Obama and the Democratic Party with white voters, and particularly those without college degrees — who, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are significantly more likely to be unemployed than those with higher education.

    Don’t forget that this is the same poll with the ridiculous D+10 split in its sample from earlier this week. The 26-point gap might well have been wider in a sample with a more predictive model. Obama lost this segment by 18 points in 2008, and he’s not likely to do better this time around. However, he can’t afford to do much worse if he wants to hang onto the White House, especially given where this vote tends to concentrate — in key swing states like Pennsylvania and Ohio, as well as Wisconsin, Indiana, and even Virginia, all states Obama won in 2008.

    With that base looking strong for Romney, the campaign has decided to extend its focus to the core of Obama’s support:

    Mitt Romney’s campaign team has been quietly laying plans for an outreach effort to President Obama’s most loyal supporters — black voters — not just to chip away at the huge Democratic margins but also as a way to reassure independent swing voters that Romney can be inclusive and tolerant in his thinking and approach. …

    Romney took his campaign to the Universal Bluford Charter School in West Philadelphia aiming to highlight his education agenda but also to connect with voters who were not part of his political calculus during the primary campaign. “I come to learn, obviously, from people who are having experiences that are unique and instructive,” he said.

    Despite the obvious difficulties, Romney’s outreach to black voters could reap dividends even if he is unable to significantly chip into Obama’s support. “Suburban voters will be a real battleground, and upscale white voters like to think of themselves as tolerant and they won’t vote for a candidate that is seen as exclusionary, and the Romney folks must be aware of that,” said Bill Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. “He has to persuade suburban voters that he isn’t Rick Santorum. He could break the mold a little bit and do some campaigning in African American communities. It would get people talking, and it would be all gain and very little pain.”
