I'm a white female with a Chicagoan accent who also dislikes Obama. Guess your "theory" is blown out of the water, eh?

say I'm a troll, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on political talk radio (that is heard in all 48 states, not just 1 town).
depends on if the call screener is only putting certain people on the air. I have to wonder on other talk shows, when all the people on the left are sounding like bat**** crazy loons, but then I listen to NPR and I know its just the way it is.

How odd, something must be wrong with my radio. I reside in a very liberal state, California, but I have heard many Black callers that were very displeased with Obama. Should also mention that many White, Latino, Asian, Native American, male, female, old, young, middle aged, straight, gay, rich, poor, middle income, etc. callers also do not care for Mr. Obama and his policies.

Maybe, but again, on Alan Colmes, on the show I listened to, just about all of the Anti Obama calls where from white men with Southern drawls....was just asking if it's like that on other talk shows......

I mean, for those who get real defensive about the South and the way racism reeks down there,....80 to 90% of the folks who think that Obama was not born in the US are (per a few polls) from the South.
I see what your trying to say and my responce is : SO WHAT??? Are they not allowed to voice their opinion?

Colmes is far left, and like most talk shows, is promoting his agenda. Almost surely Colmes and his producer instructed the screeners to put on the air male callers that sounded white, had a Southern accent, and had an anti Obama message. Pro and con opinions on any public figure will come from every demographic group in the spectrum and from every part of the nation. By reinforcing the false stereotype image of Southern white racists, Colmes is playing the oh so tiresome race card that leftists never get tired of delivering.

I don't listen to any talk radio and only look at a very small amount of so called news (on news outlet websites). Allen Colmes, Hmmmm ???
Wasn't that guy Sean's coffee caddy or shill token lib on a fox news commentary show ?
Yes he was the guy who always had the "caught Me Grin" when proved wrong.
Likable guy, funny looking, personable but soooooooo wrong most of the time.
