the nerve!

No, see, he's black and therefore whatever he does is wrong.

It's not politically correct, and of course a million people will cry foul at the suggestion.

But that's why, some of the time.

Beyond that, he's a muslim, and he's a socialist, and a marxist, and a communist, and a nudist, and an admitted drug user, a smoker, his birth certificate offends, etcetera.

Bottom line: Rush Limbaugh and his skin color are why parents are acting so god damn foolish.

My question has still yet to be answered by those opposed, I hope the previous poster is wrong and this is not a race thing. But, its no secret that a big part of the U.S is still VERY racist.

Could have seen this one coming a mile away, and so typical of liberal thought. Just more of the sickning, puke and vomit, idea that the liberal loves your child more than you do, and therefore knows more about whats right for your child than you do.

You are nothing but control freaks. The only value a child has for you is a tool to further your insane agenda. LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!

you are assuming every single person who speaks for obama is liberal, while i personally know of many liberals who disagree with obama and many conservatives who like obama.

i am an independent. do i think obama is perfect? no. do i think any president we have had in the past is perfect? no. the bottom line is we havent really gotten to see yet what he can do. He hasnt been in office that long. He is having to wipe the slate clean from the toll bush did to us.. and i can only imagine that isnt the easiest job in the world, and will take more than a year to get things back in order.

if you learn patience maybe your life will be better. too many people expect for this new president to come in and make life peachy and great.. and it just doesnt work that way. learn patience.

personally, i dont think obama is that bad of a guy. i dont think he is a great president either.. but i believe he needs to be given more time to show us what he is or is not capable of.

there are many problems with america. for you to put all of your faith into one man is a mistake, no matter how great the president was anyways.

if you cant do the work to make your life better on your own, and you rely on the government to do that for you, you are just a lazy human being.

as for obama's speech to the children. NOT A BIG DEAL. for once we have a president who actually cares about the bullcrap direction children are heading in. teenage pregnancies are skyrocketing, kids have the WORST attitudes ive ever seen.. kids start drinking and doing drugs and having sex at incredibly early ages... I think it has a lot to do with the fact that nowadays both parents work long hours instead of the past when one parent stayed home to take care of the kids. When you are gone from your child for most of the day, who are they supposed to learn from?

That is one of the most sensible things I have read on ATS in a while.

The polarization & drama over this President is laughable, the fact is that he's a pretty mainstream politician with a slightly different approach, that's all.

Like I keep saying, he is neither Messiah nor Antichrist

To which color are you referring, the white half or the black half? This deflection is getting extremely tiresome. It always comes out when there is no factual or logical rebuttal to an accusation. Between that and "What about Bush?" and "Where were you during the Bush years?", I am getting motion sickness from all the spin!
