  • Didn't you know, since we've had a black president everything said is a racial slur.
    It's stupid & people need to grow up.

  • What I can't believe is that NOW Jimmy Carter is crawling out from under his rock and proving once again that he thinks with a peanut. I'm sick to death of race having to be an issue - this crap is political not racial - Wilson didn't call him a liar because Wilson is a racist - he called him a liar because he believes the president is not being truthful and is skirting the factual loopholes in the bill proposed.
    Obama didn't lack experience because he is black (or half black) he didn't make promises and then not keep them because he is black, he hasn't done anything because he is black - except to accept that he is the first black president (which is actually a very high honor) I'm proud to know that America can vote for a black man to be president - I just don't think Obama had enough experience going in...period. All his speeches are vague and his policies so far are biting us in the butt.

  • Its not about calling him a liar. Its the timing and place. He couldn't contain himself in a respectable situation. If you think that is okay, than i will walk into my job this afternoon and tell my boss in his face "You lie" than i will see if i will be employed after that. Its about respect and Wilson had non for his boss, the commander in chief. That screams racism to me.

  • I agree with anon:02.
    The place & timing were just wrong. But seems most people just don't understand that. Sad.

    The President isn't Wilson's Boss.. The Constituents of South Carolina are Wilson's boss. The President is the boss of the military. He is the boss of his Czars. He is the boss of his cabinet. He is NOT the boss of Congress... That is why we have the checks and balances we have. WOW anon...

  • anon..disrespect does not 'scream racism' unless you are the one being disrespected by someone you deem inferior. technically speaking, the "highest office in the land" would be looked upon as superior, with everyone else lower or inferior. so, with this in mind, and what you just said, THERE WAS RACISM SCREAMED ALL OVER THE PLACE THE LAST ADMINISTRATION...but it was ok, because W was an idiot....AND HE WASN'T BLACK.
    now i get it.
