Unfortunately my wife listens to the show while getting ready for work. The comedians are funny though - especially Dominique - she cracks me up.

Anyway - today they where mentioning Ohio gov Kasich turning down federal money for tornado disaster aid.

< Story here: Kasich turns down federal disaster aid >

Their spin was to wonder how much hate Kasich has towards Obama to not take the money. People are hurting, the state has no money and because of hate and politics, he will not take the money.

Ultimately Kasich will be judged on how he gets this done - with or without federal money. And he said he may request some later. But what is wrong with restraining oneself from jumping at money just because it's there? Heck - the federal government has no money now - where are they getting it from?

But the stance of these cheerleaders is typical - all Obama, all the time - fanning the destructive flames of racism and divisiveness.

It's not racism when the left says it or approves of the rationale behind it. Left-wingers aren't racist.

"Tom Joyner Morning Show - Approved Racism"

If the Governor uses state funds for disaster response / aid, that's fine with me. I don't think poorly of him for wanting to go-it alone. But I'm confused by your use of the word "racism." What did Joyner say that you think indicates he's a racist? Thanks.

I thank you are missing something about the Obama presidency and his re-election. Tea party people and the people who support them don't want Obama gone because of his policies. They want to be able to say "see black men cant lead". Then they can feel justified in not hiring,promoting,or approving business loans for black men. When Obama got elected I noticed some of my GOP supporting colleagues at work acted differently toward me. Something had changed on the social front and they were not happy about it. If Obama loses in November it is a lost for all black men. That is what this group including this gov. wants to happen.

I'm sorry, where does the TEA PARTY say "Black men can't lead"? You know a black man delivered the TEA PARTY response to the State of the Union, right?

What's true is, the liberal "elite" WANT the TEA PARTY to say that "Black men can't lead".

FAIL.
