Gotta give him credit for trying.

NAACP CONVENTION

Lone GOP candidate takes advantage of empty podiums
July 12, 2007

BY KATHLEEN GRAY
Standing in the middle of 10 podiums, nine of them empty but waiting for Republican candidates, U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo asked, “Do you think we should wait a few minutes to see if these other guys show up?”

The Colorado Republican was the only one of 10 GOP candidates who accepted an invitation to speak at the NAACP’s 98th annual convention in Detroit.

“Do they know something that I don’t know?” Tancredo said. “The fact is that I know something that they don’t. We may not agree on all issues, but we do have a very common cause – that the playing field is level for everyone and the gates of opportunity are open for all.”


So, do you think this means the Republican candidates have completely written off the African American vote?

Certainly in the primary! And in the general election, they will simply try to suppress it.
