William Cohen,...sometimes people live in a time-bubble and think the partisan bickering and feuding they've seen over the last twenty-five years or more has always been the situation, but if that was the case Nixon would not have been impeached by the House by a 412-3 vote, and his GOP colleagues in the Senate wouldn't have warned him to step down or face conviction.
Times have indeed changed though, if there ever was a time for black folk to be partisan it is now. I'm an independent,...have been for twenty-five years or more, but the GOP has swung so far over to the right it no longer makes since to cast a vote for any of them in the times we're living in. The republican party needs to completely change its platform or die out. I'm not holding my breath waiting for either though.
My wife and I are Independents and we had this same discussion....
I often laugh at Democrats who referred to George W. Bush as the devil....they see what a presidential devil is now. I then think back to the infamous "George Bush doesn't like black people comment...".....I look at what Kanye is doing and I just SMH.
