• Idiotic MSNBC Guest Blames Landrieu Loss On White Racism

    Mary Landreiu’s reelection chances were nonexistent. Landreiu lost to Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-La.) on Saturday by 11 points. It was an unadulterated trouncing that has some analysts worried that it could reflect negatively on Hilary.

    “In terms of 2016 . . . do you think this is going to be a problem for Hilary Clinton or any other Democrat who runs in 2016?” MSNBC host José Díaz-Balart asked.

    “Well sure. The south is going to be a tough nut to crack,” said Aisha Moodie-Mills of the Center for American Progress.

    That was the beginning and end of Moodie-Mills making anything that comes close to logical sense.

    “The reality, and every single poll shows this, is that Democrats have completely lost the south because white people are running away from Barack Obama and this African-American man who is occupying the White House,” Moodie-Mills said. “Mary Landrieu only got something like 18 percent of the white vote. You’re seeing that more and more and more white people are voting for Republicans. And I talk about that because we can’t discount the idea of the racial politics that are playing out down there. People hate this president, southerners hate the president more than they’ve hated any other Democratic president.”

    Race card. Race card. Race card. It’s all these desperate fools have.

    Moodie-Mills convientanly forgot to mention that Mary Landreiu shot herself in the foot when she essentially called all Louisianians racist when she said “the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans.”

    After making a ridiculous claim like that, it’s no wonder that Landreiu only received 18 percent of the white vote.

    That fewer white people are voting for Democrats might have more to do with Obama’s lousy economic policies, Democrats in the media and elsewhere declaring a war on white people, and historical voting patterns than “white racism.”

    Nevertheless, inane arguments like Moodie-Mills’ are evidence that liberals will play the race card for any reason.
