Bush Displays Political Ineptitude to Black Community

 

When President Bush was asked why he was not addressing the convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured Peoples, his answer was dismissive.

Bush said, "Let's see. There I was sitting around the table with foreign leaders looking at Colin Powell and Condi Rice..." His voice then trailed away and after shaking his head, moved on to the next question.

The insinuation that having two black people appointed to high positions in his administration was a substitute for reaching out to the rest of the community created much anger from NAACP leaders. In the 2000 election Bush won only 9% of black votes.

  Couldn't find the article in Chronicle  
 
I couldn't find the article that the source article mentions on the Chronicle's web site http://www.chron.com/...

It's strange, but I also didn't find it at any other news sites.

We'll have to see if the "liberal media" that the Republicans are always complaining about actually pick up this story at all.

  Pul-lease...  
 
Everyone knows the NAACP is nothing but a tool for the Democratic party. They just don't want to admit it and have to lose their tax exemt status.

  doesn't matter  
 
whether the NAACP is a tool of the democratic party is pretty much irelevant here the fact is that the coments where stupid which anyone can see. I am supised no one has picked this up yet. Seeme like the kind of thing MSNBC would love
