How else do you explain that so far Thompson, Romney, Giuliani and McCain have refused to take part in a Presidential debate at the PBS-sponsored event being held at what once was a black college? They are using the time-honored excuse of...cough..a scheduling conflict.
I guess they think they can win it all without the votes from Black folks. I think thats pretty stupid and quite reckless.
But the Rethugs are about nothing if not elite snobs my dear reader, and this inaction by the four candidates screams elitism loud and clear. From the HuffPo writeup:
"There is a pattern here," Smiley told the Huffington Post. "When you tell every black and brown request that you get throughout the primary process that 'no, there's a scheduling problem.' That's a pattern... Are we really supposed to believe that all four of these guys couldn't make it because of scheduling?"
A pattern is right Mr. Smiley...they don't give a shit about people of color..or their votes, they never have and they never will. I hope this really bites them in the ass hard on election day....
