Water is one Louisiana's best friends. We love to swim and fish in it. But, water flooding due to excessive rain or other weather events has caused damage to the hopes and dreams of many in Louisiana.
Quite correctly the Louisiana Republican Party refused to censure Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle and Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne for their failure to support a Republican candidate for governor last year, even as Dardenne deserves approbation for the greater disservice he did the state’s people.
So, Donald Trump is upset that he has been linked time and time again to David Duke.
His VP pick, Mike Pence said Sunday on CNN, “And Donald Trump made it clear repeatedly in this week that not only does he denounce David Duke, but we don’t want the support of people who think like David Duke.”
Let me repeat Pence’s comment—“we don’t want the support of people who think like David Duke”.
Shoe on the other foot?
Some national media outlets are calling three Louisiana members of Congress hypocritical for asking for funds for victims of flooding in the Bayou State because they voted against aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey and other northeastern states in 2013.
The three are U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, who was a member of the House at that time, and U.S. Reps. Steve Scalise, now House majority leader, and John Fleming, who is running for the U.S. Senate – Republicans all.
Most political experts claim that Donald Trump has no chance at generating any black support in this presidential election. They point to polls showing Trump with 1-4% of the black vote, even lower than the 6% support GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney received in the 2012 election.
