The Choice is Yours

"Now you can get this, or you can get with that
I think you'll get with this yes, for this is kinda fat
If you get with that, then you will surly miss,
Because that is so wack, I think you'll get with this."

-- Dres

GWBush and Bill Cosby have a bunch of American scratching their heads. And so I 'm going to say that 2004 is the year that America acknowledged black diversity.

Mr. Bush said that as he seeks to "earn" the votes of African-Americans, he was going to ask them to consider some questions.

"Does the Democrat Party take African-American voters for granted?" he asked his audience, who responded with applause. "It's a fair question. I know plenty of politicians assume they have your vote, but do they earn it, and do they deserve it?

"Is it a good thing for the African-American community to be represented mainly by one political party?" he said.

"Have the traditional solutions of the Democrat Party truly served the African-American community?" Mr. Bush said. "It's what I hope people ask when they go to the community centers, places as we all should do our duty and vote, people need to be asking these very serious questions."

Mr. Bush said: "I'm here to say that there is an alternative this year."


You can always count on GWBush to make things so plain that they seem to be a lot less complicated than they actually are. On the other hand, it's uncanny how fundamentally correct he is on the biggest issues.

Now, would he have been able to get away giving that same speech at the NAACP meeting?

I don't think it matters where he says what. It's not as if people aren't listening whenever the president speaks. The NAACP doesn't want to welcome the president, fine.
