“Folks, there is really only one choice to make this Election Day: choose yourself.

“What we’re still waiting for – however- is if what you say in presidential debates these days really matters as well.

“Regardless of who you will cast your votes for, make sure that you select humble, servant-leaders that will advocate initiatives that will improve your way of life, not just your sense of racial pride.

“Too often, Black America does a great job of turning out at the polls for a party or a set of candidates, only to be set back in our place – as loyal voters and quiet – and perhaps even gullible – constituents.

“This year, commit to choosing yourself, regardless of who you vote for.

“Because through all of the comments about the 47%, rising tides lifting all boats, Affirmative Action, war on women, and the middle class, the ads and campaigns will soon go away…if you don’t finally choose to take an ongoing stand for yourself politically, these candidates…will continue to choose to look the other way.”

Obama Brought Hope; Can Romney Bring Real Change for a Changing America in 2012?

In Articles on August 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm

For Mitt Romney to win in November and win back long-reaching American economic prosperity, his plan and rhetoric must actively and boldly embrace the socioeconomic diversity of our increasingly-urbanized nation.

 

One ticket brought hope to the working and middle classes of America in 2008. Can the Romney-Ryan ticket really articulate a vision of positive change in November 2012 for those same voters?

 

It has been one week since the announcement of Congressman Paul Ryan as the vice presidential nominee for the Republican Party. Since then, we have heard a lot about Ryan’s budget, Ryan’s voting record, and Ryan’s impact on the campaign trail.

If the Republicans are going to turn the tide of the recent poll numbers, the American people need to hear more about how Paul Ryan – and, in turn, the Romney-Ryan ticket – will be able to help the groups of citizens in most need of moving through the economic aftermath of the Great Recession.

The Romney-Ryan ticket could be seen as superior to the incumbent ticket regarding fiscal astuteness. Considering the combined expertise of the men involved, Romney and Ryan are commonly seen as respected numbers wonks, while Obama and Biden are seen more as expert politicians that excel with everyday Americans. Both ends of the Republican ticket regularly receive bipartisan kudos for their acumen concerning economic matters. This should play to Republicans’ advantage this fall. Of course, the results of the past four years that many Americans have endured under the Obama Administration (and a Democrat-controlled Congress for the first half of the presidential term) would seem to only reinforce the notion that there is a definite difference between the two tickets regarding economic understanding and influence.

Yet, none of that matters to date, as evidenced by recent polling. Further, it is unlikely that it will matter if the Romney-Ryan ticket is unable or unwilling to articulate an economic message that speaks directly to more of urban America, the youth of America, and the future of America.

From the ongoing battles with Governor Romney’s tax returns to the decades of Washington experience Congressman Ryan brings to the presidential ticket at age 42, the Republican ticket is already categorized as detached from modern, everyday America. The best way – and, perhaps, the only way – to create the necessary tie with these voters is through articulating clear, focused initiatives that are part of the Romney plan to bring America out of this crisis.

Can the Republican ticket describe a proposal where federal-state partnerships exist in low-business, high-risk areas so that low tax rates and stiffer criminal penalties can be brokered together to stimulate job growth in high unemployment areas? Can the Republican ticket offer support that ensures equality in hiring and wage practices without stifling job expansion?

Lenny McAllister Analysis on “Romney-Ryan 2012” on NPR’s “Tell Me More”

In Audio on August 13, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Republican analyst Lenny McAllister discussed the potential for minorities in America under a Romney-Ryan Administration as part of the lead story on “Tell Me More” on National Public Radio (August 13, 2012)

“Those (Ryan budget) proposals…are supposed to make sure that we can save entitlements (for the future)…and provide opportunities where we have more investment and people have more capital to invest in our challenged areas (in America)…it’s interesting that the president and the Democrats would take this line of attack (on Congressman Paul Ryan) when you look at these 3 things:

#1 – President Obama’s budget (proposals) were getting shot down in a bipartisan effort, repeatedly;

#2 – The Democrats have not produced any time of a budget (proposal) in over 1000 days; and…

#3 – …when President Obama talks about these tax cuts, people conveniently forget that (right) after the 2010 midterm elections, there was a president that signed into law the extension of the Bush tax cuts…it wasn’t President Bush, it was President Obama.”
