COLOR US BEWILDERED:

Black caucus suing over budget cuts (ELLEN TANDY, 11/16/05, 2theadvocate.com)

A Baton Rouge judge Wednesday put off hearing a lawsuit against Gov. Kathleen Blanco's budget cuts. The Legislative Black Caucus filed the suit claiming the governor doesn't have the authority to cut the state budget by 10 percent. [...]

Dr. Robert Hogan, a political analyst at LSU, said the suit is a sign that Blanco could be in some political trouble. Hogan said the governor was elected in 2003 with more than 90 percent of the black vote, and he indicated that many of those who were her core supporters are now challenging her.


Haven't we been assured that it's W who hates black people, not Blanco?

With a name like Blanco, what would you expect?

Unfortunately her budget cuts are spread out evenly across almost all categories. She should have taken it all out of the programs that the black legislators are complaining about. If she did she would win in a landslide.

Not to mention a lot of her supporters in 2003 are now living in Texas.
