I neg those posts that are illogical, inane, or incorrect.
HaHa charade you are, lauriebell.
We should restore your deleted posts the way you restore anton's
Anton's get restored because every other post he makes is deleted because he blatantly baits people. How mine would bait anyone, I'm not sure.
Oh and by the way, here is the text:
Yes and no.
In terms of numbers, yes - more whites voted for Obama than in previous years. However, this can be attributed to the fact that this election saw a record voter turnout and as a result, more people voted in total for both candidates.
However, in terms of percentage of the white vote captured - no, that is not true. Within the past ~30 years, Kerry (2004 - 41%), Gore (2000 - 42%), Clinton (1996 - 44%) and Carter (1976 - 48%) all won the same or a greater percent of the white vote than Obama (when using the 41-43% range I mention below).
Granted, at the moment, we do not have the final release of percent of white vote Obama actually captured but most polls seem indicate between 41-43%.

PS - blindly negging anyone that might not speak in a 100% positive light about the candidate of your choice is no better than protesting incorrect statements.
And regarding my comments about Emanuel - the man is known for his highly partisan actions and slightly off-base reactions. A reporter pisses him off and what does he do? He sends him DEAD FISH (clearly logical and rational). Tony Blaire meets with Clinton after the Lewinsky scandal breaks and Rahm tells him prior to the meeting, "Don't f--- it up" (F what up? Why even bother saying that??).
For all this change and bipartisanship Obama preached and presented himself as - why bring in someone as your righthand man who is known for such practices? Now neg me all you want, but just keep in mind that you may see this post as illogical, inane, or incorrect but at least it's comprised of FACTS that can be supported. Not much incorrect or illogical with that... other than maybe Rahm's actions.
Also, Alyiah - I've noticed you like to neg a lot too in these kinds of threads. Why not participate in the discussion instead of just negging?
