why do some people still have so much trouble understanding that the issues with Obama have nothing to do with race? Is it an actual disability that we just don't talk about to be polite, or a lack of intelligence? What is it that keeps people from being able to process the thousands of examples and reasons and sourced arguments presented over the past two years, and instead insist that despite the mountains of evidence demonstrating thousands of other reasons, it must be a race thing?

    How come certain people think some idiots on a youtube video are the reason the dems get a bad name? yet don't understand why the repubs have the same bad name?


    Its OK to judge dems based on Rush and Howard clips..but not to hold tea party / repubs to the same LOW standrad...

  • Birthers are racist idiots.

    How many do you know personally? Or do you just make that blanket statement about all of them based on some protest signs, the same way people make blanket statements about Christians based on Westboro signs?

    I makke the statement based on the facts and there being no REASONABLE person that could believe it since there isnt even a LITTLE basis in reality


    There is an UNDERLYING issue that makes it believable...

  • Sweets... there goes the fun in us agreeing on things.

    People that always pull the race card do not really have an argument or a sense of what is going on. Its the easy way out and they think it makes them seem like they know something. It really is ignorant.
