I thought this was really interesting, and says a lot about Voters and their perceptions of who is electable. I posted this on another forum, Got 3 positive remarks and one questionable (The Questionable commented "THIS THREAD WON'T GO FAR"). Sad, when you take a stand for Constitution, G-d, family values, true equality you get branded as something less than human.
What's funny is I saw this on a couple other "non-biased" media outlets and they're actually holding him at fault for being deceptive, he never actually claimed or said "hey I'm a black guy". The so called "experts" weighed in and concluded it was not based soley on race, they added that the board had been in disarray for some time and that was a contributing factor. That's all on the voters and no one else, period.
Let's ignore the racism thing and pretend that had nothing to do with it. So, they voted for a man that lived near us and a man that was endorsed by somebody else. Perhaps if they (the voters) had voted for that man because he believed in cutting this, changing that, or shifting financial resources here or there, then they wouldn't be in this situation.
What on earth would the politically correct people of the world say if some white candidate said "This isn't fair - he beat me because he made people think he was white."? I'm thinking the world would be in an uproar.
