Jim Moran: Republicans won in 2010 because Americans don’t want a black President

Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) was interview by an Arab network called Alhurra. He was asked about why the Democrats lost so many seats and he responded:

“It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slave holding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.

“In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-Amerian, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society….”

Here’s the video. There is an arabic translator but you can make out some of what he says. This particular part comes around 2:50.

No, it's not a new low. It's the same old blah, blah, blah. If Americans didn't want a black president, they wouldn't have elected him in the first place.

I used to live in Virginia, and I thought I remembered Moran favorably but lately I wonder what I saw in him. He made some stupid remark about guns after Tucson. It was pretty funny when his wife turned the hose on some fundies who were harassing her.

Hopefully this video can be used against him in 012, and put this racist punk out to pasture.
