Post-racial America…I think not! This article was written just prior to the 2012 Presidential election, but the results of the poll regarding racial attitudes in America were not at all surprising to me. The excerpt below from the article is revealing:
“As much as we’d hope the impact of race would decline over time … it appears the impact of anti-black sentiment on voting is about the same as it was four years ago,” said Jon Krosnick, a Stanford University professor who worked with AP to develop the survey.

As horrible as the attack was on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Lybia, it was not the first time a U.S. embassy has been attacked resulting in the loss of American lives. If you don’t know history or only listen to Republicans, who have shamefully politicized this incident due to election 2012 and their hatred for President Obama, you would be fooled into thinking that our embassies have never before been attacked, breached or otherwise endangered. Or that this incident would not have happened under a Republican administration. Not so. This article by Adam Serwer of Mother Jones sheds light on the Benghazi attack and places it into its historical context. For the last 40 years since the Nixon administration, U.S. embassies and diplomats have been targets regardless of which political party occupied the White House.
“…no matter which party is in office, no matter who is president, terrorism and violence are always going to be a potential risk for foreign-service officers serving in troubled areas.”

I told y’all…
Obama swept all swing states except North Carolina. Florida, as expected, landed in President Obama’s column with its 29 electoral votes bringing Obama’s grand total up to 332. A solid victory for President Obama. The President is leading the popular vote and is expected to make additional gains. Congratulations to President Obama! This was a hard fought and well-deserved victory for the President. FORWARD.

The Ohio Secretary of State, John Husted is a coward. He’s done everything in his power to suppress, block and disenfranchise voters in the state of Ohio. He is not worthy of the office. The latest effort to influence the 2012 presidential election in Ohio as reported by The Cleveland Leader.
“It appears that Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, is on a mission to suppress Ohio voters. During the weeks leading up to Election Day, Husted has tried everything he can come up with, even defying court orders, in order to make sure that fewer people can vote early, and now get their vote counted. A last minute directive issued by Husted could now invalidate many legal provisional ballots.”

John Sununu, born in Havana, Cuba (let’s see his birth certificate) was George H. W. Bush’s first chief of staff. He is noted for encouraging Bush I to abandon his “no new taxes” pledge and for convincing him to appoint David Souter to the Supreme Court. Souter turned out to be less conservative then they would have liked. Suffice it to say, Sununu was asked to resign from the Bush I team before the end of Bush I’s first and only term in office.
So why is this failure acting as a surrogate for Mitt Romney? Because the Romney campaign is a campaign of failures. When you have to lie like nobody’s business in order to gain the White House, you’re a failure. Lucy Madison of CBS News writes the following piece.
“At the height of an election that has been characterized as among the most racially polarizing in years, top Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu on Thursday suggested that Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State under George W. Bush, endorsed President Obama in part due to race.”
Romney will stop at nothing in his bid for the White House. Zachary Roth reports on the latest BIG LIE from Romendacity himself…
“Mitt Romney’s found a new false attack on President Obama, claiming inaccurately that a Chrysler plant is moving U.S. jobs to China. Meanwhile, as Bain Capital gets set to actually ship jobs to China, the GOP presidential nominee is staying silent.”
