Gingrich: Skipping Black Forum a Mistake

Sept 25th, 2007 | WASHINGTON -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that top tier Republican presidential candidates are making a mistake by skipping a forum focused on issues of importance to black voters.

Gingrich, in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," urged the leading candidates to reconsider their decision not to participate in a forum on Thursday at Baltimore's Morgan State University to be moderated by talk show host Tavis Smiley and aired by PBS.

"I'm puzzled by their decision. I can't speak for them. I think it's a mistake. I wish they would change their minds _ they still have a few days _ and I wish they would in fact go to the debate Thursday night," said Gingrich, who is considering entering the race for the GOP nomination.


Good old Newt -- he wants to run so badly, he's taking the leadership role of elder statesman and is cautioning the GOP candidates:
"PLEASE please PULLEEZE!!-- don't abandon your racist hypocrisy NOW."

Actually, in my view, this is the first sign of Republican integrity* I've seen in damn near living memory -- the white boys (And House N***r Alan Keyes) saying implicitly, if not explicitly "We don't give a damn about black people -- they don't like us and we don't like them so why pretend?"

* Other than Ron Paul and Barry Goldwater.
As to Democratic integrity, haven't seen that since Jimmy Carter, and they all make fun of him for it.
