    Default How nice of them...(rolleyes)

    Wow, huge announcement. The Congressional Black Caucus is actually going to allow some more blacks in it, even though they are republicans. If the CBC is really about advancing blacks, it should have never been a question or a huge shock that they would allow the new black Congressmen in. Unless there is something that libs will (stereotypically) do to help blacks out, like...well...give them free stuff, make excuses, and not hold the accountable for their own actions. Read Allen West's comments. This guy is really going to stir the hornet's nest. I can't wait to see what his future holds. (POTUS??)

    The Congressional Black Caucus says it will allow two recently elected black Republicans to join the group if they ask.

    The all-Democratic caucus had wavered over the issue since Tim Scott of South Carolina and Allen West of Florida were elected last week. Chairwoman Barbara Lee had pointed to the group's liberal mission statement as a potential point of conflict.

    But in a statement Tuesday, the group said the two would be welcomed if they request membership.

    West has said he wants to join to bring a new perspective to the group. Scott hasn't decided.

    The 42-member caucus has had two Republican members in its four-decade history. The most recent black Republican in Congress, J.C. Watts of Oklahoma, declined to join.

    Oddly enough, the mission statement on the CBC's website says they are nonpartisan. Laughable at best.

    The black caucus includes a handful of moderates but is mostly made up of liberals serving in safe Democratic districts. The addition of Republicans would likely shake up its weekly meetings and require its leaders to navigate around them to discuss strategy.

    West, a former Army officer, said in an interview he's eager to steer the group away from "failing liberal social welfare policies that have caused the demise of the black community."
    I like this guy...

    West said the black caucus must confront overwhelming issues in the African-American community including high teen pregnancy, incarceration and unemployment rates. Those are issues that require "competence and character," not the caucus' "monolithic voice that continues to promote victimization and dependence."
    I really like this guy...

    West defeated Democratic Rep. Ron Klein despite opposition from African-American Democrats such as Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida.
