During Black History Month, Obama released a new video announcing the launch of AFRICAN AMERICANS FOR OBAMA. (See video below.)
This is an attempt to segregate voters based on RACE instead of voters joining together in groups based on VALUES. Minorities actually tend to be conservative in their beliefs and they are waking up to the realization that Obama

The State of Texas is under assault by the Department of Justice and the Voting Rights Act. All this Texas redistricting mess (and the pushing back of the Primary Election date) is due to section 5 of the Voting Rights Act which requires a few states to have any voting changes approved by the Department of Justice first (because somehow it is better to have one unelected, biased person, the Attorney General Eric Holder, decide how a state runs elections instead of the elected officials of the state determining it for themselves).

The Republican Party of Texas is entering into unknown and uncharted territory. We are now faced with having to do our Republican Conventions/Delegate Selection Process BEFORE we even have a primary election! This process has always been tied to the Primary election but this year it will not because of the belated Primary Election (see below for the normal process from previous years). The 62 members of the State Republican Executive Committee will be developing an entire new Convention/Delegate Selection Plan. We have already had a conference call in which we discussed the many different ideas and we agreed on the basic plan. This plan is VERY intricate and has many different moving parts,
TX SREC Emergency Meeting over New Delegate Selection Process for May 29th Texas RepublicanPrimary Election
The San Antonio Federal Court regarding the redistricting lawsuit has declared that Texas will not have a Primary Election before May 29th, 2012. We have been told to plan for an election on May 29th but that we could also have it as late as June 26th, 2012.
The problem with this late election is that we have to have the Republican Party of Texas State Convention at the beginning of June.
IMPORTANT TX Redistricting Update: NO April Election. One May 29th Primary or Split April/May Elections
The San Antonio Federal Court had a Redistricting hearing yesterday, 2/14/12. We had hoped for more clarity of when we will get to vote. After the hearing, things did not look so good…. Instead of clarity, we got chaos. A Unified April Election is OUT (won’t happen) and we still do not know when we will vote! We might even be forced to have our Precinct, County and State Conventions BEFORE we even have the primary election! Read more »
Republican Party of Texas - On Friday afternoon, the San Antonio three-judge panel issued an order which clearly indicates that the Court wishes for both sides in the redistricting lawsuit to assist in resolving all of the issues in time for an April primary election.
The Court also clarified some misconceptions that have appeared on blogs and among the media - specifically, reports which have stated that the Court had rejected Attorney General Greg Abbott's proposed maps earlier this week. The order clearly states that the panel has not rejected any maps. The Court also noted that final interim maps would be drawn in accordance with the Supreme Court's recent ruling
