The disturbing thing about the Black Conservatives on the Beck program is that with one or two exceptions they all voted for Obama.I like Charles Payne,and think that his comments on the market are very astute,but even he voted for BO.The double standard is still very much in place;quite acceptable for a person of a minority to vote by race rather than ideology,but never ever is this permitted for whites without it being labeled as racist.Still,it is encouraging to see that there are conservatives among minorities and that there is growing disenchantment with Obamas policies in the black community.

Here is a good rule of thumb. If you voted Obama, you are not a conservative. If you say you are, you are lying, and now we know why you voted for him.

No true conservative fell for the obvious lies and socialist agenda of Obama.

So if the the candidate of your "ideology" happens to be an idiot or maybe a scumbag or simply is inferior to the other guy you will slavishly support him because he espouses the right ideology,gotcha.
Also Its hilarious the way you guys can so clearly see "double standards" and "reverse racism" but the traditional ugly racism that still plagues our country somehow escapes your keen senses.

Racism "plagues" this country?
Yeah. Right. I have seen real racism in my time.
It is mostly a convenient excuse these days. Plague? Yeah, right.
Except for pockets of it, like Obama's church.

And, Einstein, just who would you support in your scenario? A "superior" candidate with an ideology that is antithetical to what you believe?

Are you sure Payne voted for Obama? There's nobody on TV more critical (and rightfully so) of Obama than Payne on Cavuto's show on Saturday mornings.

In the early part of Becks program was a segment where Payne shows Beck around his old neighborhood and talks about his childhood.During it he states that he voted for Obama.Stunned to hear it,since Payne is a free market guy and not in any way a socialist.As I said in the earlier post,it would seem that race trumped ideology,or perhaps he just was not comfortable with McCain,or it could be a combination of both.

blacks and Hispanics elected BHO - plain and simple. The remainder of the country was split.

Black People Have

voted for someone White in all elections including the last one. In most elections the vast majority who are registered and vote, voted for a White democrat for President. This is true even when there was a Black candidate running for office (normally as a 3rd party candidate) so if its so much about race why wouldn't Black people band together with so unspoken signal and vote for any black candidate, 3rd party or no?

Wow you have to be so loyal, as a Black person, that you must vote in mass for a White person in "every" election or they are racist 99.9% of the time isn't good enough it must be 100% of the time but some white people can vote white 100% of the time and they are good Americans. Talk about a double standard.

What was the big fear in the last election "White People would say the are voting for Obama in the polls but once in the booth they would pull the lever for McCain". Why would even be in the equation, who knew what?


So the majority of America votes for the best candidate running and somehow the Black People get it wrong, again, they voted for the wrong person because they voted on race. White People voting for McCain voted on the highest of morals and a conservative ideology it had nothing to do with race. Boy you guys are sad, you got to do better then that.

I know you will win next time. Next time you will have the right candidate, have all the right issues and an answer for health care . Right now Obama is running against himself , and the media, so everything he does fault is found.

Can't wait until you right wingers put up a real person and some with some real baggage and come out with your platform.

Your slip is showing, grow up you lost fair and square.

Making money in the market now are you! Unemployment will be down before you know it. FOUR more YEARS.

how many black votes did McCain receive, versus the number of whites who voted for Obama?

Not really. If it were, I'd be vastly more inclined to offer my support at the ballot.

If I have my choice between baked beans, lamb, or squash - I order a pizza.

(not picking on you Judge... I've just gotten a little cynical about our primary system and two-party system. I know I can use the write in option if it makes me feel better, but that's like ordering the pizza, but knowing it's never coming while you dial the phone... hardly a solution for me...)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_..._United_States

..White Americans overall (non-Hispanic Whites together with White Hispanics) will remain the majority, at 73.1% (or 303 million out of 420 million)

..About 13.5% of the American people are Black or African American

...Americans of Hispanic origin do not form a race but an ancestral group known as "Hispanic or Latino",[10] the largest ancestral minority in the country, composing 14.8% of the population in 2006.

Seems to me without a sizable number of whites voting along with those 2 smaller groups, you guys would now have that venerable team of McCain/Palin/Joe Wurzelburger instead. And who knows, maybe Obama would move back to Kenya and teach college level Communism/community organization? But then who would you bash 24/7/365
