John Roberts is respected throughout the legal profession. He is the top star among attorneys who argued cases before the Supreme Court. When he was nominated for the 5th Circuit Court (Washington, DC) the vote in committee was 14 to 3 and on the floor it was unanimous - unanimous. So why are Democrats giving him grief for his "misleading" responses? Because he is not a liberal. On what basis could non-esteemed Senator Ted Kennedy oppose him? None. So if you're a Democratic senator frustrated by Roberts "non-responses", you must be pretty heated, right? Yet, if memory serves me correct Bill Clinton nominee and rapid liberal Ruth Ginsberg didn't answer questions about court decisions when she was going through confirmations and the Republicans didn't complain about it; in fact most of them voted for her.
Former Democrat Presidential candidate Howard Dean told members of the National Baptist Convention of America on Wednesday that race played a major role in the death toll from hurricane Katrina. The National Baptist Convention is a black religious group with roughly 3.5 million members in 3000 churches.
"We must … come to terms with the ugly truth that skin color, age and economics played a deadly role in who survived and who did not," Dean said. He made the comments to the Baptists’ Political and Social Justice Commission.
Funny how a man from a state that's 97% white can have so much knowledge and insight into the needs of Black people. I mean, if you go by Vermont's racial breakdown, Howard Dean's cabinet as governor should have at least included a person who was 3/100ths Black.
Yet, none of this seems to matter to Black people brainwashed by a Democratic party that's long been hijacked by white liberals.
Rapper Master P has questioned Kanye West's controversial Hurricane Katrina telethon comments, because he fears the Jesus Walks hitmaker was merely hyping his new album.New Orleans, Louisiana, native Master P - real name Percy Miller - has lost family in the disaster and urges celebrities making passionate speeches about the tragedy to be sincere, because it's the wrong time to promote albums and movies.West shocked America last week when he used a live telethon to attack President George W Bush and call him a racist for failing to react quickly to help stranded African-Americans in the worst hit areas.And Master P only hopes West meant what he said."I hope the comments that Kanye West made is sincere and this is not a promotional thing to sell records," Master P said. "I know he's got a new album out right now."Miller accepts West has a right to speak his mind, but he wants Americans to come together to help the hurricane victims and not pick racial fights."We gotta save people. We need George Bush, we need the Mayor (of New Orleans), we need the (Louisiana) Governor," Master P said. "I've lost people, I know how real it is. This ain't about a promotional thing with me. I've got loved ones out there missing."
Granted, no one could defend the horrible job Michael Brown was doing in regards to how he's managed Hurricane Katrina and the Times article on his bogus resume was definitely the final nail in the coffin. Yet, its sad that the Left would see this as a "victory" in that they show no shame in continuing to exploit a tragedy due to their relentless hatred for Bush, all the while the search for dead bodies in New Orleans keeps going..
And for the "selective memory"-challenged libs castigating Bush for helping out a friend, should we remind them about Denise Rich?
In light of polls showing that most New Yorkers won't even show up to vote, 4 Democrats are still vying for The Right To Lose to Mayor Mike Bloomberg in the upcoming 2005 mayoral election. You've probably never heard of them, so I'll provide you with a little information on each: there's Fernando Ferrer (I think he has some important position up in the Bronx), Virginia Fields (she's Black), Anthony Weiner (I have no idea who he is) and Some Other White Guy.
Apparently, the race for The Right To Lose To Bloomberg is getting tight as the favorite, Ferrer, may not be able to get the 40% of the vote needed to avoid a runoff. Wouldn't THAT be....I don't know, kind of embarrassing??? But lucky for Ferrer, he just got an endorsement from pseudo-preacher and FBI informant Al Sharpton, so Ferrer will probably win the primary now since Black people love Sharpton so much! Of course, all of this is kind of ironic in a "liberal" town like New York City, where the President would be hard-pressed to get a vote, yet has seen a Republican in the mayoral seat for 12, going on 16 years now.
