While Donald Trump makes noise…Hillary and Jeb will be looking for Black votes…


Both Hillary Clinton AND Jeb Bush, in a prview of next falls election are going to address the National Urbam League, the Black organization….

They ARE both running for respective parties nomination, but make no mistake….

They ARE both begging to run for the general election next November….

Hillary WILL have the black vote….But Bush will be trying to peel off some of that vote, and will try to get more of Latino/Hispanic Vote….

( Democrats Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and Republican Ben Carson are also penned in to attend the event)

For Mrs. Clinton, support from black voters is a strength she is trying to lock down in the face of a surprising surge from Mr. Sanders. The independent senator from Vermont, who caucuses with the Democrats, has caught fire with many white liberals.

For Mr. Bush, whom polls show with scant African-American support, it’s an opportunity to change minds and present himself as a Republican eager to broaden his party’s tent—an appeal that could help with voters of all races.

In the 2016 race, the lopsided support and huge turnout for Mr. Obama among black voters is not a given, said Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League. “People may look conventionally and say the African-American vote is reliably Democratic, but the issue really has to do with levels of motivation and levels of turnout,” he said.

A change in turnout could create some opportunities for Republicans in key states if they can broaden their support even marginally with minority voters, even if a big majority of them still vote Democratic….

  1. It’s sort of hard to begin “peeling off” that vote when you speak before an organization and inform them that you oppose just about everything they’re for.

    1. He, he, he….

      The Object is to find the things THEY want to hear….

      They pay people in their campaign to help them do that…

    2. More on today’s appearances….

      Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking to a mostly African American crowd here Friday morning, decried racial inequality and took an indirect swipe at Republican rival Jeb Bush, who will speak here later in the morning.

      “The opportunity gap that America is facing is not just about economic inequality,” said Clinton, mentioning the central theme of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders. “It is about racial inequality.”

      Clinton saved her most pointed criticism for Bush. While she did not mention his name, she called out “Right to Rise,” the name of the pro-Bush super PAC operated by his top allies.

      “I don’t think you can credibly say that everyone has a right to rise and then say you’re for phasing out Medicare or for repealing Obamacare,” she said. “People can’t rise when they can’t afford health care.”

      She added: “And you cannot seriously talk about the right to rise and support laws that deny the right to vote.”

      The Bush text…..

      “For a half century, this nation has pursued a ‘war on poverty’ and massive government programs, funded with trillions of taxpayer dollars,” Bush planned to say, according to prepared remarks released before his speech. “This decades-long effort, while well intentioned, has been a losing one.

      “So many people could do so much better in life if we could come together and get even a few big things right in government,” Bush was to say. “I acted on that belief as governor of Florida. It’s a record I’ll gladly compare with anyone else in the field.”

  2. Let me “interpret” Jebs spiel for you James,

    “Give rich people tax cuts so they will “invest” and “create” jobs.”

    Same old Right Wing pallaver just without the typical Republican shrillness.

    Your continuing efforts to paint Bush as anything that different from say Ted Cruz continues but fails.

    If Bush was a Senator,he and Cruz would vote the same98% of the time.Bush is just more smooth and mannerly when he speaks.

    Same old crap though.

    I don’t see him or any other Republican doing significantly better among Black voters than they traditionally do, about 7% or so.

    1. Nor do I
      Nor have I portrayed him as a moderate
      The media and his campaign has
