Stacey Dash on Romney:
‘I Chose Him Not By the
Color of His Skin But the
Content of His Character’

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/9/2012 11:05:59 PM

As NewsBusters reported Monday, African-American actress Stacey Dash was thoroughly lambasted on Twitter for expressing her support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. During an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan Tuesday, a defiant Dash marvelously said, "I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character" (video follows with transcribed highlights): STACEY DASH: I just feel that as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country. It is my right as an American citizen. It’s my Constitutional right

Nice of Ryan to call her and lend support, but isn't it nuts she has to defend her right as a free woman to choose who she votes for.

If she hasn't already heard from some black actors and rappers she probably unfortunately will as they demonstrate the content of their character. Make that ''lack of character.''

DASH: Just come on. You know? I don't feel offended. I just feel that, you know, as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country. It is my right as an American citizen. It's my Constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for president.

MORGAN: And I think you should be allowed to have it.

And I think....? WTH Morgan She IS allowed to have it.

Yes, Stacy, ultimately you cannot be sure what a president will pursue and how, conditions change. So you must decide on character, especially when there is a crystal clear difference in character in the two candidates.
Romney has considerable character, IMO, and Obama the arrogant, disingenuous, opportunistic conniver and shameless demagogue has zero. Besides we desperately need a leader and Romney's the only leader running. No brainer. No contest.

Her endorsement and the outrageous controversy will cause number of Blacks and Mexican Americans to pause (she has mixed heritage)...it's more likely that the millions of non-minority independents who voted for Zero in 2008 will take note and join her in switching, too...

Gosh, I feel clueless. I've never been a big fan of TV for non-sports entertainment, so until now I had no idea who Stacey Dash is. After watchng the video, I came away very impressed with this soft-spoken lady, who clearly has a case of buyer's remorse. Her use of the MLK line was masterful. Glad she's with Mitt's team this time around, and I hope she convinced thousands of others to do as she's doing.

Can you believe that in this day in age that a black person has to DEFEND her fundamental right to vote for whom she chooses because she won't kowtow to the black rage/victim party line.

Worse is the condescension and lack of respect Piers rendered to her.

While this stance will likely impact her career a bit, she may have the affect of changing some minds of rationale black voters by either not voting at all, or voting for the man with "the character."

What is ironic about Hollywood actors is they do all kinds crazy things in their private and professional life, but they are mortified by and intimidated into silence if they harbor views different from the Hollywood agenda.

They snort coke off of nude strippers, get into numerous hit and runs with no criminal consequences, kill their wife, get boob jobs for a part and make sex tapes, but gosh forbid they actaully admit that they are a Republican. Admitting the latter is a career ender and admitting the former is a resume builder.

That is a truly sad assessment of some of the most influential people in the US.

FTA: "Dash came to this decision while watching the Romneys on NBC's Meet the Press a few weeks ago."

This is an amazing statement. She's a Democrat. She was watching a show on a an Obama-worshipping network, and the genuineness of the Romneys spoke to her.

Next thing you know, the edict will come down that the Romneys must not be interviewed. They are too toxically likable.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle

For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
