    Gosh, you don't say! If only colored people would get wise, and recognize what the GOP is doing for them.

    Cab Calloway to Joliet Jake: "Get wise, Jake. Vote GOP."

    lol...pathetic man really pathetic. The funny part is that it is all political propoganda which the left is winning. Most people white and minorities don't know the actual history in congress about the cival rights movement. It is people like you who talk about the white man who did everything to the minorities and tie all the bad things to the GOP.

    When I look at the current vote and voting demographics, I say: the thing speaks for itself.

    When I read between the lines, Specter is saying that the Republican voters in PA would choose an inexperienced no name hardline conservative over a very experience moderate republican with a healthy track record.

    I think he is correct.

    The Democrats rule PA politics. Republican politics are like the minor leagues. With few exceptions, anyone who wants to make a name for themselves in PA politics is a Democrat.

    Voters and candidates who would be Republican in other states, are Democrats in PA because that's where the power is and has been for generations.

    The only Republicans left are those to the way right.

    I agree GnP. He changed because he could win a republican primary for senate. He has a moderate voting record and made the switch for purely selfish political reasons. This has nothing to do with his political beliefs.

    To all others on here calling the GOP the party of angry white males. I guess that makes the Dems the party of angry everything else. Angry enviro's angry PETA, angry actors and journalist. The libs are just as angry if not more than any conservative.

The whole world saw this at last year's GOP convention, and I'm guessing it was evident at the tea parties although I didn't go.

    The U.S., today, is about 25% black and Latino. When the Republicans figure out a way to embrace these people rather than working overtime to marginalize them, they may become relevant again.
    I see you went back and added some to this post. Please tell me how the GOP is working overtime to marginalize them?

    Well, your comment was obviously offered as evidence that the GOP is friendly to colored people. I don't know how else to read it.
