It's official. According the George W. Bush, the GOP has no racial problem.
No pandering, policy change over Lott remarks, Bush aides say Mike Allen Washington Post
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The White House and the Republican Party have decided against taking overt steps to make amends for racially charged remarks by Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., because President Bush's aides think he has nothing to apologize for and should not pander, officials said.
Once again, the problem with Lott was not that he had racist views but that he talked about them in public. As long as the racists stay in the closet the GOP will continue to pretend that they aren't providing them with aid and comfort.
