Opinions tell the real story
I find it interesting that the low-information voters always default to the race card when trying to explain conservatives voting against President Obama. It really is wiser to refrain from a comment that possibly will expose a person's lack of intellect rather than express his thoughts and remove any doubt.
Conservatives I know would vote in a heartbeat for Thomas Sowell, Condoleezza Rice, Ben Carson, Alan Keyes and many others. People will need to look these people up if they are unfamiliar with them.
I identify the comments of letter writer David Riggs with ones made by one of his intellectual giants, Nancy Pelosi: "We need to pass this bill so we can find out what's in it." Absolutely brilliant. As the saying goes, you can't fix stupid.
