Race, Politics, and Cynicism

Race, Politics, and Cynicism

What can these people do to damage their credibility. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney suffers no backlash for embracing and fundraising with Donald Trump who openly questions whether the President is an American. Ron Paul published racist newsletters throughout the 90s and he’s also a politically viable Presidential candidate who must be listened to and taken seriously. Why is it open association with racism doesn’t disqualify people from running for the highest office in the land. What’s more troubling is the cynicism with which this is discussed. Race-baiting is just another tool in the American mailbox to be deployed and debated as if there are no real world consequences to American citizens or I guess Americans of any importance.

    Trump is America’s biggest ass clown. Another right-wing parody of legitimate commentary. Not to worry. The voting majority knows how to think for itself. Hard to see sometimes, since extremo-trolls have the most time for comments. The wisdom of the American majority has come through before. November 2012 is going to remind us of the 1936 and 1948 elections.
