The Late Great Congressional Black Caucus

I figure she will persuade Scott to join her and West as members of the CBC. Together the three of them will be able to form a contrarian caucus within the CBC. That is, with three of them working in concert, as White Republicans have done for the last four years, they will oppose anything even mildly progressive the CBC even considers. But I thought she'd keep her scheme a secret until she was ready to attack. I was wrong.

"Yes, yes. I would join the Congressional Black Caucus and try to take that thing apart from the inside out," Love told the Salt Lake City Deseret News months ago.

If she's got two other open GOP members of the CBC supporting her, along with conservative Democrats in the CBC like David Scott of Georgia and Greg Meeks of New York, the Democrats will not be able to isolate them all. They will get on committees, water down policy positions, and by their infiltration, report back to the White Republicans what the CBC - the "conscience of the Congress" - is planning next.

Love, who is the daughter of Haitian immigrants, has not even been to her motherland since the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake in 2010, which rocked the country killing 316,000 of her "family" members and ruining the lives of millions more. She has not done anything publicly to raise one dime for innocent Haitian victims, even as dozens of Blacks and Whites with no ties to that land have given millions.

I'm sad to say, Mia will not bring any "Love" to the Congressional Black Caucus when she's elected in November, only chaos and gridlock. Bye, bye, CBC.
