I don't believe Obama has a real chance because I can't trust the medias portrayal of his chances. Unemployment figures are distorted, economic figuresare dstorted. You have folks like yourself praising the captain of the Titanic while the ship is sinking.
I guess we'll see in Nov of 2012, but I'm optimistic. We could see a Palin/Beck ticket and probably win!

Post or not...I don't care.

You are trying to defend a racist comment and you are trying to stop people from calling out racism....I have no apology for you.

I use the information that is available to me.

If something doesn't seem right, I may discount it or give it less credibility. But that doesn't mean it gives me a pass to make up different information to fit my world view.

Palin and Beck...I guess you really do want Obama to win...huh?

We will see in 2012...a lot can still happen between now and then...but right now, I like where Obama is sitting.

If you are going to accuse someone of racism or being racist, either back it up or go visit mediamatters. That dog don't hunt here.

You have no apology for calling me a racist when you had absolutely no reason for doing so?

Ok.

That dog don't... what? What the hell does that even mean?! What do you mean by "back it up"? The OP says Obama should get it the back of the bus! What is there to back up?! Do you not have access to history books? I'd let it drop except it's becoming more and more accepted on this site to be overtly racist. Not only that, but it's become totally cool with many of you (even mods, it seems) to even play the victim card (that's right, there's a card for you guys too).

My cat, uh... doesn't hunt there, either? I guess?

But, I think he just proved anyone calling Obama a socialist with the statements highlighted.


Please, I'm expecting a list of all the Socialist policies Obama has signed into law. (and please, don't say healthcare)

It is sad that racism seems to be accepted here...especially if it is against Obama.

I know for a fact that the OP has been ALERTED to the mods by multiple members...and since racism is against the T&C...you would think it would of been dealt with by now.

But I guess WE are the bad guys...for calling out the racism

UMMMMMM....what do you mean by "Then Obama can get on the back of the bus..."? is that a racist statement?


Just more anecdotal evidence that his most vehement opponents are backward bigots. Me, I especially like the comment where the OP sai Obama crammed the healthcare bill down our throats. What a moronic comment since that was one of the most publicly drawn out political battles of the modern era. And it of course does not recognize the larger issue had been cooking on the burner since Nixon.

One thing you can count on, those who hate Obama most I generally find to be the most ignorant. P.S. I am not an Obama supporter; but I'm also not a backwater nitwit who parrots the idiocy of FOX News.

*yawn*

While he claims he wants to work together for the good of the country, he has spent the last two weeks demeaning and castigating Republicans at every chance he's gotten. But today (10-25-10) it reached a new low. He used a racially charged pejorative that no other national leaders would ever be able to get by with as far as the Elite Media is concerned. He said: "Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

And this is how he plans to get cooperation from the victors?

What are you trying to imply? ALL MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES ARE BLACK?????

Because if you are...and Obama was also intending that same interpretation...then maybe there would be some merit to it....but there's not.

That's great of you to fire back with a comment taken out of context. You can pretend all you like that Obama's CAR analogy was somehow racist and that the OP's BUS analogy was not. Are you somehow ignorant to the fact that black people used to be forced to the back of the bus?

To further point out your ironic defense, did you also fail to realize that it was the black people who were forced to drive the white people (who sat in the back). In CARS.

why he'll get re-elected, if it was a republican that knew were osama was hiding, they would have waited until 1 month before the elections to get him, leaving americans in danger for the next year and a half.

Telling a group of racially diverse people to ride in the back of a metaphorically "economy" car as part of an analogy...is no where the same as telling a black man to get to the back of the bus.

EVEN if he did say that, which he didn't, that does not give anyone a pass to use the same racist phrase. Like I said, it's like people saying they should be able to use the N word because rappers do.


Are you saying that telling a black man to ride in the back of the bus is not a racist statement???

And quite frankly, the middle class and the poor HAVE BEEN sitting in the back of the bus for a long time now. Can't you see it? Endless tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations...many paying no taxes or very little....they won't pay more but want the rest of us to take all the pain for debts they are mostly responsible for?????

How does this not make sense?

I haven't seen this much "tap dancing" around an issue since I accidently turned on Dancing with the Stars.

With all the thin skin around here, you guys must be buying out all the SPF500!

Since we're not going to be discussing Obamas' chances in 2012. . . How about those Phillies this year. Seems like they have a good chance at the penant!

The only one I see tap dancing around the issue is you...and since you can no longer defend your comments...you try to deflect. I posted my comment on his election..yet no reply on it.

And like I said before, you weaken your own argument when you play the race card.
Sticking to the issues would be a refreshing change around here.

How do we discuss Obama's chances in 2012 when your last response to me was that you don't trust anything that is positive about Obama in the media...and you sure as hell don't trust anything from Obama himself.

You tried to cherry pick the ONE poll that gave Obama a distorted large disapproval rating....so don't act like you are waiting to discuss real politics.
