These two old dellusional bats do not even recognize their "Black man" who is President has done NONE OF THE ABOVE!

He has carried out many of the Same Bush policies. How stupid and naive can two old bats be?
Those who are calling others "delusional" for their clear thinking and accurate analysis of a situation had really better re-think that! AND, I'm not just speaking about political issues. . . . hey you. . . what'syourname. . . former good friend (or is that fiend?) pardon my venting, but you, who are so capable of intellectual honesty when you want to be are displaying a severe lack of same when it suits your sense of comfort and security. I'll happily take my dog, thanks. . . .

summers73: Would that be like using the word "Jew" to describe the 6,000,000 people Hitler killed? Sorry you don't understand that calling out racism (or any other kind of ism) requires one to actually describe the people being targeted. Obama is a black man; I am a white woman. Is using gender to describe either one of us "sexist"?

I don't agree for two reasons...

They are most obviously not racist based on their liberal views.

They used the word "black" to empasize why the true racists are opposed to Obama. How would they have successfully gotten their point across without referring to Obama's race? Really a no brainer so I'm sorry that you did not get it.
