What we are up against

On the March 14, 2013 edition of Larry O'Donnell's "The Last Word" he quoted a South Carolina state senator Kris Crawford.  Crawford said as follows when he was talking about S. Carolina accepting the president's Affordable Healthcare Act and I quote:

"The politics are going to overwhelm the policy [the Affordable Health Care Act.]  It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party!"

That says it all and shows one the impetus behind most of the Republican obstructionism in Congress and why the president has to pull teeth to get anything passed.  It also affirms what I have been saying for years.  

I received criticism from a conservative former friend of mine.  He said that I was completely wrong telling me that racism is not at the heart of the Republican opposition but that it is the policy that is at the force behind it.

I say, as Rachel Maddow would say, BULLPUCKY!

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE MUST NOT ONLY ELECT ED MARKEY THE BEST MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC SENATORIAL CANDIDATE FOR OUR PROGRESSIVE CAUSE BUT IT IS ALSO WHY WE MUST SOUNDLY OBLITERATE RACIST REPUBLICANS IN 2016.  

WE MUST TAKE BACK THE HOUSE, KEEP THE SENATE AND TRY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO TAKE BACK STATE LEGISLATURES.  THIS SOUNDS LIKE A TALL ORDER AND THAT MAY BE SO BUT IT MUST BE DONE IF THE PRESIDENT IN HIS FINAL TERM CAN PERFECT THE CHANGE THAT WE KNOW IS NEEDED NOT ONLY FOR HIS LEGACY BUT FOR THE COUNTRY'S MIDDLE CLASS TO SURVIVE.  JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL!
