I had to crack up at how transparent they were when they were trying to conflate racism with states rights.

yeah...it was so stupid it was somewhat amusing yet sick at the same time. I couldn't help but wonder who many idiots watched this with no idea of what they were talking about....

This has been going on for a long, long time. The left has considered "states rights" a racist code phrase for decades. It's idiotic.

Somewhat understandable, being that that's because it was, for many decades. That being established and recognized, the conflation no longer exists. Time to happily move on.

Sometimes it was and sometimes it wasn't. That's the problem with seeing racism behind every potential codeword. There have always been legitimate reasons to support state's rights but those who did so were smeared with the racism charge. At least we can agree that it's time to move on.

This is one of the numerous reasons why MSNBC is tanking in the ratings.
People understand what they're going to get when they tune it in. So people know they don't have to watch MSNBC, because its the same thing
day after day. Matthews has a major credibilty gap, as does the intire network. The ratings prove that.

It's idiotic.While I agree that your point is valid, I disagree with the assertion that all state rights talk is not racist. Some is and will always be. not all, but some. Much like literacy tests, its sometimes used to cover racism, not always but sometimes.

State rights was decided a long time ago. We had a friggin civil war over it for crissakes. No state is going to leave the union but, I still consider any person advocating their state leaving the USA a traitor to America.

From what I've seen the "states rights" issue has become a hot topic because of the healthcare bill; could states opt out, etc.

The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states by the constitution of the United States are reserved to the states or the people.

Of course, I made no such assertion, and I'm not sure anyone else has either.

"State's rights" means more than just the right to leave the union. The question of where the line is between state sovereignty and the federal government's authority is in constant tension, and while liberal SCOTUS justices have tried to eliminate almost all restraints on the federal government, they haven't completely succeeded.

The Fed is out of touch with the constitution is the problem. Medina looks to be a real grass roots movement. They're concerned that an outsider, could actually take back some rights for it's citizens.

I think that you're wrong on the first count. And on the second, personal liberty and states rights are intrinsically intertwined.

I have no idea who these talking heads are??? James Moore- the author of Bush's Brain- said there hadn't been a Republican Primary in Texas since the Civil War. WTF is he talking about? Let's see he wrote a book on Bush and Bush ran for Governor in 1994, including a Republican primary. Plus, the state was pretty much run by Democrats from the 1870's -1970's- 25 election cycles for Governor. And we are to beleive there wasn't a Republican primary for Governor for 100 years? What a complete loon!

If the buzz is any indication, Chris Matthew's just elevated Medina's chances.
