Not so Fast Democrats … Black Democrats in MD Cross Party Lines To Back Steele for Senate


The Democrats and the MSM may wish they never have boasted of “The Blue Wave” that Steelewas going to sweep up the Republican Party on November 7. Now less than two weeks before the midterm elections the Democratic Party and MSM are getting a bit nervous. The “Blue Wave” may turn into Democrats feeling blue.

In Maryland the US Senate Race is getting interesting. In a state where Democrats out-number Republicans 2 to 1, Republican candidate “Black Democrats Cross Party Lines To Back Steele For U.S. Senate.” Michael S. Steele is gaining momentum.  

A coalition of black Democratic political leaders from Prince George’s County led by former county executive Wayne K. Curry endorsed Republican Michael S. Steele’s bid for the U.S. Senate yesterday.

The support from Curry, five County Council members and others barely a week before Election Day reflects their continued disappointment that the Democratic Party has no African American candidates at the top of the ticket and a sense that the county is being ignored, officials said.

Take a good listen Democratic Party to those that you have taken for granted far too long and merely have an expectation that Blacks will vote for you, just because.

“They show us a pie, but we never get a slice,” said Major F. Riddick Jr., a former aide to then-Gov. Parris N. Glendening and a former county executive candidate. “We are here today to say we’ve waited and we’ve waited and we’re waiting no longer.”

      For the third survey in a row, Republican Michael Steele finds himself trailing Democratic Congressman Ben Cardin by seven points in Maryland’s Senate race. The most recent Rasmussen Reports survey puts Cardin ahead 49% to 42%. Cardin’s lead was 50% to 43% earlier in October.

      fact is most black voters will keep voting democratic no matter who or what.

      What’s up with that????? Don’t they know that you have to

      examine each candidate, no matter WHAT they call themselves?

      I would imagine that if the Black Democrats are backing him,

      he must be a good man… besides isn’t it adversity that

      truly gets things done????


      We have seen what the other guy can do, I think this guy

      deserves a chance. Besides, once they start getting their

      electric bills this winter, they are going to need some one

      to keep them warm at night…. I choose Steele!!!!!!!!!!


      Said only like a true woman can. And you thought politics

      was only for the male species!?!?@#$$$$$#@!?!?!?!

      sure, dream on. Steele is suffering for his linkage to the Gov. Ehrlich, who has irritated everyone in the state. too bad, Steele has possibilites, but not this time around.

      i read an article this evening:

      The final pre-election NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll suggests that Democrats continue to have a significant advantage heading into the midterms that take place exactly one week from Tuesday.

      I vote for the best person regardless of the party; but since our leader won by one vote and failed to fulfill his promise on his inaugration he will loose 99 seats between now and the next election.


      SM: According to the 2004 Exit Presidental Polls … Kerry was supposed to win. Ever get the feeling people just lie to the pollsters and tell them what they want to hear?
