Racist hate speech from a Democrat

Kentucky Democrats are at it again. They're attacking Republican Senator Mitch McConnell's wife and former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao for her Asian heritage. You'll recall last year when Progress Kentucky sent out a series of tweets vilifying Chao and McConnell's "very close ties to China."

    "Progress Kentucky, a Democratic super PAC with its sights on toppling Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), has drawn backlash for a persistent effort to suggest that the senator's wife's Chinese roots have led him to embrace anti-American policies.

    In a Feb. 14 tweet, the group made a particularly blunt jab suggesting that Elaine Chao, former labor secretary under President George W. Bush and McConnell's second wife, was encouraging him to support outsourcing jobs to China."

"This woman has the ear of @mcconnellpress -- she's his #wife. May explain why your job moved to #China!" the tweet read.

Now Kathy Groob, who claims to be an advocate for women in politics, has attacked Chao as Asian and claimed because she is Asian, that she isn't from Kentucky. Groob made the statements in a series of tweets over the weekend.

Can you imagine the national furry in the press if this had been a republican saying this? And the Attorney General would probably study the issue to see if charges should be brought. But because it is it is the sacred party of Obama, nothing happens.

Yet Obama's (the actual President) close ties to Kenya were never a concern?

The question should be "why would anyone vote Democrat since their anti-business policies drive business out of this country? "

9:57 - only the non crony capital businesses. For the rest it is business as usual with political coverage from the Dems. Especially Facebook and Google, not to mention half the financial institutions on Wall St that should have been left to fail. Remember that every investor is gambling his money which means that the government has no business in propping them up at taxpayer expense.

Unfortunately it is either all or nothing when voting Dem or Rep.

Dems - liberal social policy; liberal to moderate fiscal policy

Reps - moderate to conservative social policy; conservative fiscal policy

Tea Party / Religious Right - extreme conservative social policy; extreme conservative fiscal policy; with lots of Jesus thrown in

Most of actual voters - liberal to moderate social policy; moderate to conservative fiscal policy

It seems that neither party actually caters to most of the actual voters. They cater to their hard core base. No wonder nothing ever gets done these days.
