What is it with you people? You libs keep bringing it up and then blame us because he's black. Half black/half white to be exact.
Can we NOT like a black politician because of his policies? Is that what you're saying? Really? Is that what you're saying?
Sure, soon as y'all lose this retro racism. Don't think it has gone unnoticed that NO white "liberal" gets nearly the flack as do those darkies. They get an "F" just for having the temerity to show up let alone have an opposing view. Let's hear one of y'all frame Clinton as a lower primate. You're lying if you don't know it, see it, and deep in that darkest corner of yourself believe it.

Black people problems can be a bitch. Tiger Woods is white? Whatever his color he is a helluva golfer, he makes millions upon millions from his 'hobby'. You have a problem with that? You are just a simple assed racist, others who are sooper good at their hobbies, LaBraun, Serena, Vanessa, Durant, Bryant, Gore, RG3, Wade, Howard, etal, all black all good at the top of their of professions, all who hate how their talents are taxed to the max, so when you put your hand out a benevolent government will give you food stamps, a rent subsidy, free health care.

No Carol, Obamaís didnít use those exact words but his objective is the same!! It wasnít about Uniting a Nation it was a declaration of political war on individual liberty!!
It'd sound more genuine if you sighted that anger on Republicans who've done just as bad or worse or have you forgotten the architects of the PATRIOT Act?

Oh yeah, they were white guys.

Nevermind.

Wanna make a bet unemployment claims will rise and disability claims will rise within the next year? Even though they are at historic levels now?

I realize that is a problem for a lot of you and you have my sympathy but ever since negroes were put into the service of defending this country a lot of folks started feeling bad about them having to use different restrooms and eat in different restaurants and such. They even felt some of them might be up to performing white folks work like bein' President. Now I know it takes some getting used to but you said it: "Americans have changed" and you can either change with them or die bitter.

You sure have a lot of racist undertones to your posts.

However, black Americans wouldn't be where they are today if it had been left up to the Democrat Party.

Totally ignore this: The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending December 29 was 5,821,966, an increase of 465,547 from the previous week. There were 7,826,846 persons claiming benefits in all programs in the comparable week in 2011."

Carol, this is why you are the typical dumbass right whiner. You search every report for a negative while ignoring the position & then run screaming through the steets with arms flailing yelling "OMG OMG OMG"

Pathetic.

BTW, Weekly jobless claims when Bush left office were over 650,000

The unadjusted reflect the layoffs from the end of the Holiday season.
