Sorry but I don't agree with everything that President Obama says or does. However, it is quite obvious when these goons (Rush, Hannity, Beck) complain about everything that makes them suspect.

Can you give us some actual documentation of that happening or are you just going to continue to slander them?

You can tune into their dribble on any given day to hear the mindless bashing.

Why would you reduce Obama like that? If he has any ideas at all, then there are grounds for someone to disagree. You reduce him to nothing more than his race.

When you automatically describe anyone who disagrees with him as racist you don't do yourself any favors. It honestly just makes you look bad. Really bad.

Agree, it is pathetic. Blinded by their own closet hate and racism. Heck, had I been an Obama supporter and so greatly disappointed by his performance in office to date, I might be tempted to grasp at anything too, including that loaded deck of race cards.

On the otherhand, some of us saw Obama and his past history as a predictor of how he would "fundamentally transform" (a.k.a destroy) this country once he attained office.

Repeat after me: It is not about race; rather, it is about ideology.

Racism is a convienient card to play when those who use it have nothing left to defend failed ideas and policies.

Saying "Heck yah...I think he's an advocate and a supporter of socialism--in the way that England is socialist, and so are many european countries." didn't answer the question?
