Hewitt is one of the moderators for the CNN debate and I think he may use the opportunity to do some damage to  Trump kind of like that brain freeze moment Cain had 4 years ago when asked about Libya

There are a several articles of Robert Gray on the internet.  He is African American and he's 46.

At least some info. Well, in such case he will get decent black vote and almost none - white (what became a typical pattern in Mississippi)

There are other articles, but they probably don't add anything additional.

Notice that the greatest differential in the candidates' vote percentage between the New York and the New England side of the border follows the crest of the Taconic Mountains, and the least differential exists on either side of Lake Champlain.

I'm not sure what category of people or geographies "Birkenstock" is meant to signify, other than a vague association with the prevalence of liberals in rural Northwest New England. It is not the best term to describe a blue-collar city with a manufacturing pedigree such as Pittsfield, for example, which happens to be the largest city or town in the "Belt" in Torie's map. Rather, as Averros alluded, it's a diverse region, taken as a whole. Within the so-called belt are old mill-towns, resort communities, college towns and their periphery, and remote rural communities with weak historical or cultural connections to any of the above. It's just too simplistic to apply a label like that to an area with multiple currents of political culture. Perhaps "GOP Estrangement Zone" is a bit clunkier, but it's surely more apt.

Yeah, I tend to agree. The region is definitely interesting and worth studying politically, but Torie's analysis is a bit too simplistic.

Sorry Obama, you don't have the right to change the name of a national landmark. That right belongs to Congress.



I thought you liked state's rights though.

I do. I also support the Alaskan government joining forces with congress to take this out of Obama's power grabbing hands.

The Alaskan governmnt fully supports Obama's action.

You haven't bothered reading any of these linked articles, have you?

Remind me why this Woman is chairman again? She can't do anything right.

Because she threatened to attack Obama on sexism and antisemitism if he removed her.

And why would Americans take her any more seriously on that than they take her on everything else.  If she won't step down and Obama won't fire her, she should at least be primaried.

Trump is really trying hard to fight his initial inclination to call Ben Carson a loser, though not his inclination to attack. Let's see how this plays out: I don't think attacking Ben Carson can go well for him, and I think he knows that to a certain extent.

Carson will simply reply by saying that someone must have taken out half his brain. Tongue

I don't think the TR quotes are THAT bad considering context of time and location. Yes, he definitely viewed whites as being superior, but here's the thing- until maybe the 1960s or 1970s, most people thought that in the US... and these quotes are from the 1910s.

I think he would be fine with Obama in context of the time period and racial advances.

An example of someone who would never accept a black President would be Woodrow Wilson or Andrew Johnson.

That article doesn't mention that Harry Truman was a staunch opponent of opposite race marriages.

It also doesn't even mention Ronald Reagan. If Lyndon Johnson is going to be called a racist for using the 'n' word as that site does (they call him a racist for this even though they acknowledge that he used harsh language frequently for almost everybody, as did Richard Nixon), then clearly Reagan should be included.  In addition to almost certainly playing 'dog whistle' politics at his 1980 Presidential campaign launch in Philadelphia, Mississippi, he frequently brought up the myth of 'welfare queens driving limousines' (or whatever the exact expression is) along with bringing up at least one other lie about people on welfare that was almost certainly meant to be taken by the people's who vote he was seeking as being directed mainly if not exclusively at African Americans.

Also he was against the 1964 civil rights act after being for it and, as President, he virtually shut down the civil rights investigation division of the Attorney General's office.

There is little evidence that Reagan himself was personally racist, and there is that one famous story of him standing up to racism, but he was a (non southern) Democrat back then, but there was far less evidence presented on that site that Lyndon Johnson was personally racist.

Richard Nixon was likely personally racist, but, at least, he was an equal opportunity racist in that he seemed to hate practically everybody.

What Kasich has for himself is that he can sound more reasonable and mature than his rivals for the nomination. So it's not impossible he can use both Bush and Trump as stepping stones to the nomination if he wanted to in order to secure a victory.
