She doesnt explain her points, she just makes strange statements. There's nothing to argue with in there, it's all opinion.

I dont think this thread is in danger of being closed. No one is being racist, except for the usual baiters.
if it's not really interesting, then why is the thread getting so much attention? perhaps she has a problem because she is actually black, and from the south, and not mixed race, and from hawaii.

It's actually on anti-GOP Ron Paul blogs as well.

again, Anne Wortham keeps calling him black. She hinges her whole complaint on her supposition that he's a black American.

does that mean her piece isnt perfect after all?

I suppose you can technically round up 0.5 to 1...

Oh well, he "acts" black according to his supporters.

why would I hide that? I listen to both him and clark howard from time to time and check their websites pretty frequently. isn't that a little sad that you actually tried to call me out, and spent time trying to figure this out?

perhaps that is her problem, though she doesnt seem to be aware of the important fact you point out about Obama.

this thread is getting attention from me because I dont want to get up and fix breakfast.

Exploding popularity of this thread is evidence of it being IMHO.

Plus, 3 of my 5 pre-canned responses were realized. Not bad...

I don't need to round up. I live in America where 1 drop=whole.
