The Georgia Democratic Party is engaged in vicious race-baiting in a divide and conquer strategy to drive African-American voters to the polls. The above photo originated, I believe, from an AJC scan, but has been traveling across the internet for 24 hours.
The AJC Political Insider spoke to Georgia Democratic Party Chair Dubose Porter about the mail piece.We caught up with Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter at an event in Milledgeville this evening. He said the situation in Ferguson easily applies to Georgia:
"Again, it's about opportunity. Are you going to be in situations more like that? I mean, that's when you don't have people having the opportunity for jobs or to participate in their community and the opportunity to grow. When you have communities like that that are stagnant - that's what we're getting to in Georgia - and when you offer people the HOPE grant to get retrained, or the fundamentals in education so we can get our dropout rate down. That very much of what that climate is, is what we're trying to change here."
Dubose Porter and the rest of the Georgia Democratic Party should be ashamed of themselves for inciting racial animus.Why would the Georgia Democrats do something so destructive to our state? Here's a clue, from the New York Times:
The confidential memo from a former pollster for President Obama contained a blunt warning for Democrats. Written this month with an eye toward Election Day, it predicted "crushing Democratic losses across the country" if the party did not do more to get black voters to the polls.
"African-American surge voters came out in force in 2008 and 2012, but they are not well positioned to do so again in 2014," Cornell Belcher, the pollster, wrote in the memo, dated Oct. 1. "In fact, over half aren't even sure when the midterm elections are taking place."
Mr. Belcher's assessment points to an urgent imperative for Democrats: To keep Republicans from taking control of the Senate, as many are predicting, they need black voters in at least four key states. Yet the one politician guaranteed to generate enthusiasm among African Americans is the same man many Democratic candidates want to avoid: Mr. Obama.
The numbers are significant. Although more than 1.1 million black Georgians went to the polls in 2012, only about 741,000 voted in 2010.
"If you tell me in Georgia that, on the closing of the polls, the electorate is 32 percent African-American, I'm going to tell you we have probably elected a Democratic senator," he said. "That's not theory. It's basic math."
Walter Jones, writing for Morris News notes that Democratic efforts to register new voters fell short this year,which may add to their sense of urgency.
Numbers released Monday by a Kemp spokesman showed the total voters registered at 6,038,372, which is 39,182 lower than those registered in 2012. So far this year, 183,000 people have registered since March, but more names have been removed by reasons such as death or moves out of state.Of those new voters, about 67,500 or one-third are black, one-third white and the rest either unknown, Hispanic or Asian. Earlier in the year, Democratic operatives set a goal of adding 200,000 minority votes on Election Day and estimated that they needed to register at least 500,000 to reach that target.

Interviewed on CBS
Hillary Clinton 11 March 2014
“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”
Could someone please tell me what the hell she just said? And she wants to run for President ?
NOW SHE’S HEADED TO
"She is working to help Democrats win in order to help protect core Democratic values. That is her goal," Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. Her primary concern is the Senate, where she served for eight years and where she wants to help her colleagues retain the majority.
She will be here to help candidate Michelle Nunn in her race to represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate.
The Democrats are throwing everything they have to turn Georgia into a BLUE STATE.
Don't let it Happen
