Another pathetic bit of race-baiting from a Democrat
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro is calling for Iowa and New Hampshire to lose their coveted status leading off the presidential nominating calendar, pointing to a lack of diversity in both states.
While his comments risk angering officials — and voters — in both states, they come as he’s already pulled back from New Hampshire amid fundraising and other hurdles for his campaign. In pointed remarks Sunday evening, he said it’s time to “change the order of the states.”
He continued: “I don’t believe we’re the same country we were in 1972. That’s when Iowa first held its caucus first, and by the time we have the next presidential election in 2024, it’ll have been more than 50 years since 1972. Our country’s changed a lot in those 50 years.”
So, the order of state primaries should be determined on racial lines? States with not enough “diversity” or too many damned White folks, should be pushed to the back of the line? Shouldn’t using race at all in such decisions be out? Oh wait, I forgot, being color blind is now RAAAAACIST! Fact is that Castro is an especially pathetic candidate, and might not win if his name was the only one on the ballot.
Because frankly, there was absolutely nothing wrong with what Santorum said. It is good to seek to help people get jobs, or better jobs, and to get them off government dependence.
The problem is that Santorum looks bad, not for what he said, but for trying to lie about it by denying he said it!
Iowa runner-up Rick Santorum said Thursday that he would be “a much bigger player” than expected in the New Hampshire primary and denied saying that he didn’t want “to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.”
Santorum allegedly made the controversial comments when discussing welfare in an interview Wednesday night with Fox News, but he maintained that people misheard the word “black” when he stumbled on a word.
“I looked at that, and I didn’t say that. If you look at it, what I started to say is a word and then sort of changed and it sort of — blah — came out. And people said I said ‘black.’ I didn’t,” Santorum said.
“And I can tell you, I don’t use — I don’t — first off, I don’t use the term ‘black’ very often. I use the term ‘African-American’ more than I use ‘black’ … I think sometimes you want to give someone the benefit of the doubt if it’s a little bit of a blurred word.”
Come on, DEFEND what you said man! Make the ideological points about why you are right instead of whining that you did not say it! In other words act presidential!
