Then,Romney's Super Pac should run Willie Horton like ads in Hispanic neighborhoods in all battleground states.Romney can officially disavow them,but can get credit for bringing up the crime issue.
 
It's time to start playing dirty.Winning is the only thing.

Huh?  I fail to see the analogy.  Dukakis was hit by the Willie Horton ads because he let a killer go free and was branded as soft on crime.  If they arrest and try George Zimmerman, that's the opposite, that's going after crime.

Pretty sure criticizing Obama/DOJ for arresting a guy who killed a kid would be a bad plan.

The New Black Panther Party showed up today gathering outside of Sanford Police Department today in protest ...

"We don't hate anyone, we hate injustice," said leader Mikhail Muhammad.

The group called for the arrest of George Zimmerman and threatened to find and detain him if police were not willing to do so.

Muhammed led the group in chanting "Justice for Trayvon!" and "Black Power!"

,,and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been among the vocal voices weighing in on calls for justice for Trayvon Martin...

On Twitter yesterday and today, Farrakhan sent some curious tweets regarding peace, justice and retaliation... that could be interpreted as a veiled threat.........

“Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon the law of retaliation may very well be applied,” tweeted Farrakhan ..

You can put a capital D on Florida.


Just amazing how the Republican machine keeps alienating blocks of voters.  A few weeks ago that pyromaniac Rush Limbaugh threw gasoline on the Sandra Fluke fire and pissed off a majority of woman voters.

It almost like they are TRYING to lose this election.

Keep pulling your pud. The Fluke issue blew up in your faces and this will too. "It's only a hate crime when it's W on B". People were sick of your crap in 2010, and it's gotten a lot worse.

The issue at this point is not whether this is charged as a hate crime, but whether it's charged as a crime at all.

I can see where AG Holder could charge Jorge Zimmerman with a hate crime ...

Holder will claim ...Zimmerman thought the hoodie wearing Trayvon Martin resembled President Obama ...
