As usual, Denny, you are busy harping on some theme which apparently makes sense sense to you, bit which doesn't really hold up to a larger context. If African-Americans had voted disproportionately for Obama and every one else had mostly split down the middle, then there might be an interesting question ... although, frankly, given the history African-Americans have been through, then having "one of their own" to vote for would hardly be surprising. But, it isn't just them. It is almost every identifable minority. That's a different story ... one about figuring out that the GOP was mostly for things that were for old white rich guys. When the country was founded, that's who could vote. This is no longer true ... and I think it is a good thing.

Meanwhile, how about if this exchange moves somewhere else, since we have been doing well post-election of staying on topic. This crap is not.
