Programming notes

A couple of quick notes:

  • I’ll be covering the Rick Santorum rally at Peachtree-DeKalb airport in about an hour. Depending on how long it runs, I might put out a quick blog post immediately afterward — or it might have to wait, because …
  • At 12:40 p.m., I’ll be on CNN talking about the GOP race as we approach Super Tuesday. Unlike my last couple of appearances at O’dark-Thirty, this one is in the middle of the day. So, no excuses for not watching!

Hi Kyle,
Will we see a column of your recommendation for next Tuesday’s vote? Who should we vote for, and why?

Thanks!

“won’t campaign in the INNER CITY”

Because there’s no need to campaign for votes from people who don’t do anything but ask for handouts.

“Who should we vote for, and why?”

We already know that answer. You’ll vote for Obama because Bookman tells you to.

Why don’t you ask Obama why he decided to stop campaigning for the white vote?

Dear HDB @ 10:28, “wy don’t you ask Santorunm why he…or Republicans for that matter….won’t campaign in the INNER CITY” For the same reasons one does try to harvest rice in the desert or mine coal in the clouds – one goes where there is a reasonable prospect for success rather than waste ones efforts. Inner City voters are chattel of the democrats, bought and paid for.

“I’ll be covering the Rick Santorum rally”

That’s slightly more high-brow than covering a mud wrestling contest.

I don’t actually like any of them. It’s a case of bad and worse so I’ll probably vote for Obama. If it was up to me, I would have Colin Powell as President and Sam Nunn as Vice-President.

That’s kind of what I thought. I figured you to be an Obamabot.

Not bad Kyle.

I guess you didn’t read between the lines about coverage of Republican candidates.

Kyle,

“Inner City voters are chattel of the democrats, bought and paid for.”

Yet there was a day.

There was a day when the black community was the “chattel of the Republicans, bought and paid for”. The Republicans earned the votes with Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation and they were paid back for 100 years.

Then the Democrats with their civil rights legislation took the vote from the Republicans.

Can the Republicans get that vote back? Probably not anytime soon. But they need to make the effort. We all know that the US is “browning” and that all ethnic groups will be minorities.

In that world no party can win nationally on the basis of support from only one minority group.

You guys in your 40″s and younger will see that day. It will be fascinating to see what groups come together to form a national majority.

My guess today is that ethnic differences will disappear and the common thread holding the parties together will be economic. The “browning of America” will be a historical term with no current relevance.

Things change.

I have come up with two fairly decent excuses for not watching Kyle on CNN.

1–i I wouldn’t watch CNN if I had a tv.

2– Which I don’t.

I guess you stoped at Obama and didn’t read what I said about Powell and Nunn, two men vastly superior to Obama, Newt, Rick and Mitt.

“wy don’t you ask Santorunm why he…or Republicans for that matter….won’t campaign in the INNER CITY”

I’ll rewrite that for you, HDB

“wy don’t you ask Santorunm why he…or Republicans for that matter…. won’t waste precious dollars and time by campaigning in the INNER CITY when the people there wouldn’t vote for them if the Republican was Jesus and the Democrat was Hitler?

So, you’re not going to vote next week in the primaries to determine the nominee?
Who would you vote for next week as the nominee?

I guess I should clarify.
Who would you vote for in the REPUBLICAN PRIMARY to be the REPUBLICAN nominee?

I’m sure Kyle is just so hurt over that.

Romney, Do What???

After bashing him all day yesterday as not being conservative enough and fathering Obamacare and failing to pass or sign legislation that actually helped people, you’re now in Romney’s camp?

Did the axis of the earth just shift? ;)

Hey Kyle, ask Rick should the Government (Fema) help those people that had the tornado and destroyed their homes? or should Mitt and Donald Trump help them?
Those people in those area could care less now if Gov helps
