Ms. Gabriel-Dane, are you serious? These towns in Michigan were run into the ground by Democratic politicians. I seriously doubt these "black" cities (your words) would ever vote for a Republican mayor.
A racist GOP? What about Barack Obama's minister, Rev. Wright? Total racist.
Republicans trying to make Obama a one-term president is how politics is played. I'm sure you and John Kerry wanted George W. Bush to be a one-term president.
