Blogging the Wayne County Convention

Today, I’m  blogging the Wayne County Republican Convention

Approximate 100 people showed up on a nasty gloomy day.

Today, we are live blogging the Wayne County Convention, at 8:30 a.m. at the Wayne Center in Goldsboro.  

Wayne County Chairman Mark Corbett, also a candidate for reelection, introduced a speaker from the Freedom Works, Robin Staudt,  and she was sort of long winded, causing me a little discomfort because this was my first public appearance without the aid of my hummer(Hub-Around Wheel Chair). NC State Senator David Rouser, State Rep. Efton Sager, County Commissioners, Steve Keen, Andy Anderson and Sheriff Carey Winters all spoke. Letters was read from NC Senator Richard Burr and candidates running for the NC chair. The ongoing theme was a call for new and younger people to get involved and work toward the 2010 elections. New officers was elected and we will see If we chart a new direction. My advice to Wayne Repubs is to keep a line of communication open within the African-American communities and don’t just interact within when we are having a general election. My good friend, Dorothy Hardy, Syl Wilkerson and another unknown African American showed up, giving us a total of 4 out of 100. This is unacceptable, because we need to be in both parties.

Where Did This Fool Come From?
Fool of The Day
One simple question. Why should Obama help Clinton retire her debt when she stayed in a primary she knew she couldn’t win?  Political Black would like to know, Is This White Mail or What?
Presidential candidate Barack Obama wrapped up a three-day swing through Florida on Friday, with a rally in Broward County chasing Cubans– the largest Democratic base in the state. A crowd of 20,000 braved heavy afternoon rains outside as they lined-up to pass through security checkpoints to attend the rally, some waiting  in line outside cheered Obama, as he praised rival Hillary Clinton for the race she ran for the nomination, frequently distinguished his views from those of John McCain hinting that electing McCain would (“a third Bush term”), and vowed to aggressively compete in Florida in the general election with frequent visits.
Obama said he was willing as President to meet with Cuban President Raul Castro to discuss improving relations between the two countries coupled with an improvement in human rights in Cuba. He also called for an immediate end to the restrictions on Cuban-Americans traveling to Cuba and sending money home to relatives still living on the island. Obama received several standing ovations from the CANF audience during his remarks. Fidel Castro’s own estranged daughter — a prominent anti-communist leader in Miami’s exile community — warmly praised Obama afterwards. “I believe he is the only candidate who has spoken sincerely about the intentions that he has toward Cuba.
