Some people in the Republican Party have seemingly lost their minds since the election of Barack Hussein Obama! Some of these folks can't seem to let it go that Barack Obama is black, and he is the president. End of story.
Now, it is down right ludicrous some of the words emanating from the lips of some GOP leaders. Case in point, Topeka Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins, during a recent town hall meeting said that Republicans would need to embrace a great "White Hope" to derail the agenda of President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats.
What???? "Great White Hope"? And this great White Hope's job is to do what exactly? Will he display super human strength or a superior intellect to discount Obama's? Will he corral or woo those hundreds of thousands of white voters who voted for Obama and convince them to vote 'white only' in the next election? What???
I had hoped these words were a misprint of what was said... because it is hard to believe she really said that.
But, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal, Jenkins identifies three potential members of the U.S. House of Representatives as these "Great White Hopes" -- House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). All are future leaders in the GOP... and all three are white, as is Jenkins.
"So don't, you know, lose faith if you are a conservative," Jenkins went on to say.
So, help me here... no other nationality has the 'juice' to take Obama down? No great "Hispanic Hope"? Or great "Asian Hope"... or even a great "Black or Indian Hope" has the political muscle to derail the Obama agenda? Is Jenkins' and other white GOP brothers/sisters thinking that only a white male has the power to dethrone the half white/half black Obama? Unbelieveable....
And the GOP leadership continues to wonder why they can't attract minorities to the Republican tent in any sizeable numbers. Augh!
