re: Why did Jews and Asians vote so heavily for Obama?

quote:

Ike won the Black vote in 1956

that was kind of a long time ago

quote:

and Nixon got 32% in 1960.

52 years ago...dude

quote:

Is there anything that happened since then that you can think of that might have polarized Blacks?

are you suggesting that between 1960 and the civil rights movement, blacks' rights were taken away for the first time?

those "backwoods small towns" have a higher chance of facing real poverty than in urban areas

we're talking living in shacks, no running water poverty

The "upper and middle class" don't see them or interact with them regularly. As opposed to LA, San Fran, Boston, NYC etc

well Obama really didn't offer up a legitimate economic plan, so i don't know why they voted for him

Neither did Romney.

crony capitalism is only possible with a progressive-guided economy subject to a huge governmental influence if you want to combat crony capitalism, you kill the head and the body will die. decrease government and crony capitalism isn't possible. if these groups are worried about corporate influence, then they need to vote to decrease government. voting DEM makes no sense


This x1000. Why don't more dems and republic understand this most basic premise?

this thread is money


You know, this board almost guarantees yucks every night about this time.

And, yep, whoever said that the real interesting question is why the Republicans appeal to white males and not to other identifiable groups hit the nail on the head.

The right wingers are seen by jewish people as on the wrong side if social freedoms. Too much talk by them of jesus this or that. Makes us nervous

And let's not forget all the ruckus over the Islamic Community Center in lower Manhattan a couple of years ago. How do you think that Muslim-Americans, many who are of Asain descent, felt about that?

lowering taxes to grow the economy and reforming medicare/SS isn't a legitimate plan?

so you agree that they're going to come out and vote out the current administration due to its attacks on social freedoms?

why did Obama get a pass, nationally, on failing to rescind the Patriot act AND supporting the NDAA?

the only possible point i could see you make would be about the civil rights act, which would ignore the fact that blacks were subject to horrible, racist laws (often by Dem lawmakers) in 1960

They don't have to go there because it in their face everyday and therefore aren't as ignorant about it as someone from Willacoochee might be.

Jesus christ, you are entertaining. Probably don't mean to be but hope you post more. Whatever ideology you favor, you aren't a credit to it.

That wasn't about social freedoms, it was about religious bigotry and intolerance from people on the right.

Newt Gingrich even equated Islam with Nazism.

And here's how Colin Powell addressed the issue of Islamophobia on Meet The Press four years ago.
