Racist Teabaggers Fundraising eMail Shows President Obama as a Pimp!

The extremists in the Conservative/Republican Teabagger Movement are at it again! This time they have sent out a fundraising email showing our President Obama as a Pimp! Despicable!
A Tea Party group whose founder already has been in hot water for holding a sign that referred to taxpayers as "niggars" has doubled down on racist appeals.

TeaParty.org, a Houston-based group founded by Dale Robertson, yesterday sent an email fund-raising solicitation, obtained by TPMmuckraker, headlined "Obama Pimping Obama-Care, One Last Time!" This photograph -- showing the president as a stereotypical African-American pimp, sporting a pencil-thin mustache and a zebra-striped, fur-brimmed fedora, complete with a feather -- illustrated the theme.

It asks readers to send faxes to Congress, and to donate to TeaParty.org. And it contains an exhortatory quote from Robertson, identified as the group's "President/Founder": "I am greatly encouraged with the progress of the Tea Party, but our work has just begun!"

As I have said before, this kind of characterization of presidents and politicians is not unusual. You will recall that Lincoln was portrayed as a monkey or subhuman. Although I believe the Tea Pary could be more effective if it toned down its rhetoric a little and censored some of its most outlandish signs, what it is doing is not unusual in politics. Try Googling Bush Nazi, Lincoln monkey,etc. to verify that Obama is just receiving the standard treatment of politicians at the hands of the public.

You could also reflect on some of the pictures and caricatures you have posted here.

The Revenge of Ted Kennedy from the Grave - Saint Teddy, please help us with Electoral Victories in California and Texas !

The Push of Democrat Politicians and Latino Leaders in California and Texas - Voter Registration / Census

In order to be canonized as a saint by the Pope, Ted Kennedy needs to perform a set of Miracles. The Devil's Advocate will give us a lot of trouble, he will try to prove that Ted is a bad guy. First Miracle that I ask from Ted is a Big Electoral Victory in Texas and California.

What a better homage to Ted Kennedy than a Great Triumph of Democrats in California and Texas ?? .... If democrats seize good chunks of the Electorate and Votes in those two states then Mr Obama will be Greatly Reinforced .... The Texas election for a Governor is going to give a Heart Attack to many strategists and political buffs, specially the fans, followers and aficionados ( like me ) to the Democratic Party and Progressive Politics.

There are Great Opportunities in Voter Registration to recruit Latino Democratic Voters. And the census : to save one District in California and get new four possible electoral districts in Texas ( two of them heavily loaded with Latino Voters ). These Electoral Districts elect Seats in the House of Representatives. .....But Latinos have to be registered for the election and census and not hidden in the woods.

A journalist that I revere Adrian Perez tells us about California and the Registration of Latinos for the Election and the National Census.

Latino Voters, a key target in California

http://www.examiner.com/x-25133-Sacramento-Latino-Policy-Examiner~y2010m1d21-Latino-Voters-a-key-target-in-California

Some excerpts :

Latino voters will be the most sought after segment of California’s population as the 2010 election takes shape. While the “Complete Count” campaign prepares to launch in April by the Census Bureau, organizations like the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NaLEO) have been busily registering the growing number of Latino voters. This push, along with the state’s economic climate, the continuing partisan battles and a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision will be key in shaping the Latino vote.

In the report “The Million-Latino-Voter March: A Yearly Event” by Dr. David E. Hayes-Bautista, Director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture, at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, a dramatic truth about Latino voters is illustrated. “Every year, ever since 1990, nearly one-quarter of a million US citizens have been born in California of Latina mothers,” Hayes-Bautista writes. This means that by the 2012 presidential election, there will be more than one million Latino voters added to the state’s electorate.

Dr. Hayes-Bautista goes on to state, “These US citizens are already here. They will inevitably turn 18 years of age. Day by day they are absorbing experiences that will influence their voting registration and party affiliation.”

The recent Massachusetts special election to replace the late Senator Ted Kennedy, a political icon, resulted in a win for the Republicans, whose views were perhaps more in line with voter concerns than his Democratic, and heavily favored, opponent. It is believed this strongly expressed voter concern stretches the width of the country and will appear in California’s election, perhaps translating into a loss for incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer to a Republican opponent. A recent Field Poll shows Republican competitor Tom Campbell within 10 percentage points of Boxer. Campbell has enjoyed Latino support in his past bids for Congress representing Northern California.

Bettors, Gamblers and Bookies do not believe in "Health Care Reform" during this semester - Democrats not so sure in bets for November

Look at these bets in INTRADE.COM

I can not find any bets on "Immigration"

I think that "Immigration" is Kryptonite for Super Obama

My guess is that Obama and the Democrats are going to avoid that topic during year 2010.

He is calculating calculator .... He won't drink the poison, at least during 2010.
