Black Republicans' Quiet in 2007

2007 not the Year of the Black Republican.

(AP)

Remember how the GOP targeted Democratic Constituency in 3 High-Profile Races in 2006? Remember the article in the Washington Post and other newspapers around the country about J. Kenneth Blackwell the Ohio secretary of state -- a crusading conservative with an appetite for political combat -- who also assumed a leading role in the Republican Party’s efforts to break the Democrats' decades-long grip on the black vote.

The article also talked about former Maryland, Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, whose candidacy had benefited from his friendship with two Republican National Committee chairmen.

Remember former Pittsburgh Steelers star Lynn Swann who challenged Democratic Gov. Edward G. Rendell.

They called themselves the new Black Republicans and THEY LOST!

You remember the article by Associated Press, They are the new black Republicans and they have a new name for the party. GOP they say stands for the Grow Out Party. These are African American Mayors and State lawmakers who say for far too long, Democrats have taken the black vote for granted. And they're fed up.

It's time, they say, for black voters to take back the party of Lincoln, to make the GOP look more like them: African American faces, young and old. Rich and poor. Professional and working class. And as more young black voters identify themselves as Republicans, some African American leaders hope this could be a year to fundamentally change the Party, to give it new color and a new attitude.

AAPP: I guess the Republican don't remember all of the bogus lies. Yes, I guess Black Republicans' don't remember their effort to change the party failed. As noted by Rikyrah at Mirror on America blog, the GOP's leading candidates don't care about black or Latino people for that matter, and have snubbed the Tavis Smiley Forum at Morgan State.

I guess candidates like Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and John McCain. Have no love for the folks at:

Project 21
Larry Elder
Republicans for Black Empowerment
Walter Williams
LaShawn Barber
Thomas Sowell
Booker Rising
The Cultural Strategist
Dell Gines
Vision Circle
Hugh Hewitt
Star Parker
Daniel Drezner
Ed Brown


What's up with black conservatives and Republicans like Bob Parks? He has been very quiet on the issue. I wonder why? I guess there won't be a taking back of the party of Lincoln by the American people. A new color and a new attitude for the Republican Party? Not!

Not in 2007, or for that matter, any time in the near or distant future.
