The Democrats never did anything for black Americans in the past and the blacks kept voting for the party so why should the Democrats think anything else. The blacks and whites better wake-up and forget skin color and political parties and vote for the person that will put our Country in the right direction to get out of this recession. Check out their past records and how they voted and then decide which one to vote for. Don’t listen to what they promise, because they can not seem to keep promises.
White treads fine line
“Bill White Snubs President Obama” is atop an opinion piece by Akwasi Evans in Austin’s NOKOA weekly newspaper, part of the African-American Texas Publishers Association. The next line can’t hearten White supporters: “Takes Black Voters for Granted.”
“This is a huge concern,” Evans, NOKOA’s publisher and editor, said of White’s decision to stick with a campaign schedule apart from Obama’s events in Austin and Dallas on Monday. “It says that in Texas, Democrats like to run to the right.”
Evans told me he sees White courting the undecided, “middle-class white vote … and I think he has eroded his base in the process … I don’t see much difference between his positions and (GOP Gov.) Rick Perry’s when it comes to working-class people in Texas.” SOURCE

He criticizes Mr. Obama for being a big spender, and, in what can only be considered a dig at the president in the eyes of citizens of this energy-rich state, told the Dallas Morning News, “I was in the oil and gas business when he was a community organizer.”
Expect to see this Texas scenario played out across the Sunbelt — the same thing happened last week in Georgia where Roy Barnes, the Democratic nominee for governor, scheduled himself somewhere else -– as well as in Plains states and the Rocky Mountain West this fall. Keep reading at the SOURCE
