I don’t really care aboot the dust up with Rush Limbaugh. While he looked ridiculous apologizing, better that than a week of the media ignoring the 3,000 points the DOW is dropped since the election in lieu of pushing a war between the two. Meh.
And while it bothered me he let DL Hughley get away with saying the GOP Convention looked like Nazi Germany without calling him on it…actually, I can’t really think of a good excuse for that, but it’s still not the main thing that bothered me.
What bothered me was that, while everyone agrees the GOP needs to broaden their base, he feels he needs to do it by sucking up to the people we’re looking to attract. I like Public Enemy as much as the next guy (“soul on a role but you treat it like soap on a rope because the beats and the rhymes are so dope”), but instead of trying to act like you’re “down” with Chuck D, why not tackle an issue? I’ll even give you one:
The new Obama budget would do away with the school voucher system that is helping poor families in the inner city area send their kids to private/charter schools they wouldn’t normally be able to afford to.
President Obama, who sends his kids to private school, doesn’t these families to be able to have the same opportunity, because while the Democrat Party claims to care aboot their vote and care aboot the kids, they care aboot the money they get from the teacher’s unions more.
It’s an issue the GOP can own because while the President talks a good game aboot school choice, he and the rest of his party are still bought and paid for by the teachers unions.
So if you’re going to go on a show with an African-American host to try to appeal to an African-American audience, maybe next time consider tackling an issue that appeals to African-American voters…especially one that is in the news right now.
Just a thought.
UPDATE DEUX: See how easy it could be?
