Abstract:     
This short article addresses the problem of then-President Bush and the Republican Party not being able to muster Black support in elections. Examined are numerous reasons why this happened, such as non-support of, or outright hostility to positions favored by Blacks, as well as Republican support of political figures and a judicial nominee with views opposed to Black interests. Presidential candidate Bush was also the first major party nominee to ever refuse to speak to the NAACP. Dick Cheney is cited with views in line with Bush in many of these respects. Similar problems in other contexts are also addressed.
