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

“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….”
