Submitter's headline is inaccurate; the article does not state that President Obama plans to resign.

studs up: Robert Byrd, and so many others. Does your pre-emption make the Klan any less racist? That would be a neat trick to use to negate every argument, if it wasn't, you know...potato logic.
Keep throwing up those Potemkin facades, somebody will believe your logic. If you do convert that idiot with this argument, you can keep him.


And yet Senator Byrd, who was once a despicable man in many ways, evolved and the Klan doesn't seem to attract many adherents these days.

We all ought to question our beliefs and test them as we mature. President Obama said of his life that it was one "bent toward justice."

And then in the here and now, Colin Powell looks at the right and has this to say,

"

There's also a dark - a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. What do I mean by that? I mean by that that they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that?

When I see a former governor say that the President is "shuckin' and jivin'," that's racial era slave term. When I see another former governor after the president's first debate where he didn't do very well, says that the president was lazy. He didn't say he was slow. He was tired. He didn't do well. He said he was lazy. Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans, but to those of us who are African Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there's a third word that goes along with that. The birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?"

Will you also acknowledge the problems in a party that has essentially lost any hope of support among non-whites and the people who care about social justice?

studs up: um, what?
Should I post the myriad rants of the liberal hatefest of the previous president by Garafalo, Moore, West, Mahr, etc.


Did you happen to notice that two of your examples were directed at Democrats?

And how reflective of the average lefty voter's opinions do you think those statements are?

We don't tend to elect and support people who embrace hate. And we are usually quick to say that something is unacceptable whether it comes from our side or not.

I also notice that you are very quick to respond to vitriol by saying "They do it too!" instead of condemning the kinds of attacks (very racist and personal) the first family has faced.

Remember that hate groups have increased more than 800% since this president was first elected. That's pretty alarming and I would like to see more outcry from a loyal opposition and less jokes about the race of the Obamas and lies about how they conduct themselves.

No surprise there.

/A-Hole.

How dare he travel when there's so much brush to be cleared at his ranch?

nice

Nice for the taxpayers as brush clearing at the home office in Texas is probably a hell of a lot cheaper than brush touring in Africa.


I'm sure you expressed the appropriate amount of outrage over the trips of all presidents while calling them A-holes.

Still lacks wit. If you can't do better than the headline just don't post.

theknuckler_33: I hear that trip is going to cost $246 million dollars a day.

Damn you Fartbongo!


$300 million? What kind of rampant corruption would make this cost $500 million a day?
