    WHY HAVE THERE NOT BEEN ANY PUNDIT THAT
    ASKED THE QUESTION ARE WHITE VOTER STUPID

    Throughout American history white
    Americans have fought and voted against the country and against
    Americans! Hate and divide has been and continue to be the platform
    for the white dominate Republican Party! When the racist Tea Party
    join the Republican Party they were form to attack the government and
    the first black President. Then there is the Republican candidates
    for President records! Horrible yet they get support from white
    voters. Take a look at the three top runner :

    Mitt Romney as Governor he rank 47 in
    job creation a piss poor record. He also criticize President Obama
    healthcare plan. A plan model after his healthcare plan. Totally
    hypocritical! White Republican voters wanted Governor Chris Christie
    to run for President. Romney is a member of a openly racist religion
    that believe black are evil. Christie balance the budget off the
    backs of the middle class and the poor and attack teachers union and
    daycare! The very fist thing Christie did after becoming Governor was
    to increase the people making $90,000 to $130,000. From 17 under
    Corzine to 33! He shut down a project that would have brought 40,000
    jobs to New Jersey. Then gave the rich and super rich a tax cut. The
    national unemployment is 9.1% in New Jersey 11.5%! Christie endorse
    Mitt Romney for President! GO FIGURE!!!!

    Herbert Cain has made some outrageous
    and racist comments against Muslim and black Americans! His 9 9 9
    program for change is ridiculous . Yet when he criticize black
    Americans he went up in the polls. Stating all black Democrat voters
    are brainwash! Stating that President Obama is not all knowing of
    what it is to be black! Cain is a total idiot That believe if he
    attack blacks and Muslim and spread hate and divide. White Republican
    voters will vote for him. Herbert
    Cain is intentionally smearing the president. Barack Obama wouldn’t
    have gotten as far as he has if he were anti-American,
    anti-Constitutional, and anti-Declaration of Independence. Cain is
    engaging in a practice that I’ve seen over and over in our African
    American communities. He can’t compete with the president, and he
    knows it, so he tries to bring him down and aligns himself with
    others to accomplish the job. He’s in the same category as Steele,
    Fisher, Christie, Blackwell, and the rest of the AA fools who align
    themselves with a group of people who don’t like them any better than
    they like the president. It didn’t take Michael Steele long to recall
    that he is AA when his butt got into trouble regarding RNC spending.
    All of a sudden he decided to play his version of the race card, but
    before that he was as willing as any of the other conservatives to
    bash the president.

    Rick Perry is a walking talking idiot
    that has the lowest unemployment number …BUT the highest uninsured
    the highest drop out rate in the country! Michele
    Bachmann and Rick Perry are defeated in the Republican primary. These
    two are locked in a battle for the “honor,” and it is hard
    to imagine anyone else being remotely competitive for the foreseeable
    future. In the minds of white voters Bachmann was a strong contender
    with her insistence that the Soviet Union (which hasn’t existed for
    roughly 20 years) poses a serious threat
    to the United States.

    Given
    the history of white voters. Why has not one pundit asked white
    Americans voters ARE THEY STUPID! Or why do they vote for idiot! The
    Republican candidates for President are hypocrite and incompetent in
    the jobs they already have. Proven records of failure yet they get
    white Republican voters support. AGAIN.. Given the history of white
    voters. Why has not one pundit asked white Americans voters ARE THEY
    STUPID! The white control media is fast to criticize and demonize
    and identify black voters that vote Democrat. But you never hear
    white pundits criticize white Republican voters that voted twice for
    the worse Republican President in American history. G.W. Bush!!!!

    JUST LOOK AT THE MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARDS

    I just watch the news reporting on job
    growth in New Jersey under Governor Chris Christie. The claim was
    that 4,000 jobs were added and unemployment is at 9.1%. National
    unemployment is 9.%. Well what stuck me was anytime the national
    unemployment is announce under President Obama. It is follow by
    reporting on the high unemployment for black American 17.% . That was
    not done when reporting on New Jersey unemployment. Nor did the
    reporter state that under Governor Christie within the first month as
    Governor. Christie shut down a project that would have brought 40,000
    jobs. He also laid off 6,000 teachers firefighters, police officers,
    state workers. He also lost 400 million in a Federal grant for
    education! Which would have save over 4,000 jobs in education.
    Christie did create jobs immediately for his staff. He increase his
    staff that made between $90,000 to $130,000 from 17 under former
    Governor Corzine to 33.

    The media has shown a double standard
    when reporting on President Obama. If President Obama accomplishment
    is reported by the news media it is always follow by a BUT…..Then
    something to tear down or belittle the accomplish is stated! They do
    it all the time when reporting on national unemployment. President
    Obama has had job growth for 13 quarter of reporting. Yet like I
    stated before it is follow by a BUT black unemployment is……Bin
    Laden was capture and killed under President Obama leadership and
    direction. BUT the media tried to give credit to the worse President
    in American history G.W. Bush. That in eight years didn’t get the job
    done!!! When President Obama decided to go into Libya Republicans
    like Gingrich first said President Obama waited to long. Then when
    President Obama join the United Nation” effort. Gingrich claim if
    he was President he would not have went in Libya.

    President Obama was
    proven right and the dictator Gaddafi’ is DEAD! The same is
    done to President Obama’s 789 billion dollar stimulus package. The
    media allows the Republican politician to make claims that the
    stimulus package was a failure. TOTAL LIE! The stimulus package save
    over 2 million jobs and the automobile industry and gave nearly 90%
    of Americans a tax cut! There a BUT that is always reported and that
    BUT is. That the stimulus package didn’t bring unemployment down to
    8%. The fact is President Obama is still President and unemployment
    is coming DOWN! So it may get there!

    In
    keeping with the agenda of the Republican Tea Party to keep hate and
    divide alive in America. Republican politician are stating pure lies
    against President Obama. They are claiming that President Obama
    called Americans lazy. TOTAL LIE!It happened during a speech at last
    ‘s
    Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in Hawaii. Of course, he
    didn’t say that. He was actually talking about America’s pursuit of
    foreign investment, that we’ve gotten a little lazy at selling the
    United States as a good place to do business. Which is totally true
    and the President in my opinion would have been irresponsible if not
    stating the truth!

    Despite
    that, Republican presidential candidates like Rick
    Perry
    are already taking it out of context, predicting it will get a lot of
    play on the campaign trail and in congressional races. “That’s
    what our president thinks is wrong with America?” Perry said in
    a campaign ad released yesterday. “That’s pathetic.”Mitt
    Romney’s
    response at was typically less inflammatory: “Sometimes I just
    don’t think that President Obama understands America.”

    The
    media needs to stop given their opinion and reporting on rhetoric AND
    JUST REPORT THE TRUTH!

    the country and the President to fail. NOT one Republican denounce
    his statement against the country

    Santorum if ever he becomes President
    has stated he will return to Iraq! A war that had no reason and cost
    4.500 American lives for NOTHING!

    Mitt Romney and his healthy sons REFUSE
    to enter the military! But Romney wants more wars for other American
    children

    Romney was born in Mexico WHERE IS HIS
    BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!!!
