AL - Word of advice. Stating facts has no effect on the RWA's because they make up facts as they go along. All the Republican voter id programs are designed to disenfranchise (for RWA's that means stop them from voting) the poor, disabled and elderly and anyone not white and RW.

Weren't we told that the rise in extremism in the middle east was our fault? Surely the rise in home grown extremism is our fault too. As in the ME our government is doing something to create extremists.

Pleae explain how Voter ID is racist when there a re a lot more poor whites then there are poor blacks.

"There is a still a significant part of the US population that is still very bigoted towards someone because of their race". I think this applies to more blacks then whites.
Even more curious, how are voter ID laws a greater hurdle for blacks than whites. The aswer is, they aren't.

Technically blacks could vote in the south but they forced them to take tests before voting and if they didn't pass they would won't be allowed to vote.
Give it a rest. Tell me then, how does a poor person apply for assistance with no ID? How do they have bank accounts? How do they cash checks? Same for the elderly.....

He's not doing anything different than Clinton would have done. It's just that some people cannot live with a black man in the White house. It's that simple and so are they.

Of course it does.

If you expect to find a racist under every bed and every rock then you'll find one. You libs are always looking for reasons to be offended and if you can't find one then you make it up.

If you loo at his policy they are quite different than when Bill Clinton was in office.Justthe fight within the demcoratic committeee between Clinton and Obama factions made that evident before Obama was elected. But remember also that it was Bill Clinton who warned that no president could govern from the left in a right of center country. A lesson I think Obama is learnig first hand now.Right now is more or less a lame duck president with no hope of building a consense between hisself anf republicans and his power to change pretty much only temporary that can be changed by next president because they are not law.

The left can never explain this, they hem and haw and dance around it. The election of Congressmen Allen West R-Fla and Tim Scott R-SC have dismayed them, as well as the popularity and support that Cain received from the GOP. Imagine that, all those White Folks took off their sheets and voted in a couple of Black fellas, and that was down South to boot!

What short memories we have. It was the left, not the right, that planted the dagger into Mr. Cain's back and sabotaged his campaign.
