Comments: The Kerry camp's continued pandering to black audiences: "We got you Al Sharpton!"

Devil you know vs. devil you don't know.

Is it because it's the right thing to do, or politically the right thing to do, that Bush is going after more of the Black vote this year?

Black voters aren't stupid and the GOP hasn't been without fault. Lt. Gov. Michael Steele is admitting the latter. Time for more Black Republicans to state the same instead of calling Blacks stupid, or hinting that they are stupid, and afraid.

Like the Palestinians, Republicans never seem to miss a chance to miss a chance. I think most people would agree that on a great number of issues, conservative ideas (like vouchers) offer more hope to black Americans than do the tried-and-failed liberal ones. Yet I think it's fair to say that we aren't trusted. Here on Long Island a black Republican is running against a Democratic incumbent in a Republican-majority District. James Garner is the mayor of Hempstead, a predominantly black village, and the former President of the US Mayor's council. We should be pouring HUGE dollars and effort into his campaign-- yet except for a brief visit by the Speaker last week, little has been done to help this man, either locally or nationally. No wonder Republicans have difficulty attracting conservative and moderate blacks to the party-- here's a great chance and we are letting it slip away.
