Maybe the GOP's decided the third time will be the charm with a Bush Administration.

marco rubio is probably the republican favorite for VP consideration, he is hispanic. i dont hear anybody making snarky racial comments about conservatives voting for a romney/rubio ticket. i think many of you have you preconcieved ideas of what people will and wont vote for. rice is liked by much of the republican base, she would draw a ton of support.
We've had enough of the race card politics. It's stupid and dumb.
just like when the congressional black caucus tries to use the race card, republicans do the boogey man thing as well. i just dont think the majority of people vote based on a persons race, or even religon (see mitt romney being a mormon). you are only looking at the extreme partisan wing that both sides have, most people live in the real world.
The race card is a divisve tool designed to divide people and muddle the real issues facing the country.
My grandfather was over the other day and was telling us stories about the racism he went through when they first came to America back in the early 60's. My mom and her sister where beat up by black kids the first day of school because they were spanish. They were beat so bad that my aunt went blind in one eye. White people threw bricks through my grandfather's house because they were the only non-white people in the neighborhood. My grandfather and my uncle were beat up by white people on a job site because of their skin color. My uncle was stabbed with a knife by blacks because he walked down the wrong block. This was all in New Jersey too. Not some redneck backwood city.
We've come a LONG WAY with racsim and race relations in this country. Using these race card politics is a total disservice to all that we've accomplished over the years.
