Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

<quoted text>I understand where you're coming from bro but, my post is not racist rhetoric, it's reality! Everybody on this thread ( republican) was coming after Obama's head saying " Obama's a racist! Why talk about this case? He don't care about what happens in his home state of Chicago!" He makes a speech yesterday directed at all of the black on black violence in inner cities &, the experiences which shape the eyes in which 1 group see justice &, how the next group sees it. After all the blaming of republicans, screaming" look at Chicago." He addresses the situation in his speech &, they still call him a racist. Now the claim is " he only spoke to one people." No he spoke to all people but, had a message for the same people these hypocrites where saying he didn't care about. It's a never ending cycle with these socks. They will always find fault in Obama's actions. There's only 1 reason for that &, politics has nothing to do with that! Not to mention, I'm called a negro on here on a daily basis so, I know where their heart lies!
You're still letting yourself be drawn into the phony race perspective these right wing morons are trying to establish. I agree that the dog whistles and outright bigotry expressed here is boorish but you can't let these idiots control the conversation. They fear and hate almost everyone, you're not really that special, no offense intended. Look at what they've done to the Republican party. Don't take what these deranged "conservatives" say personally, just have fun pointing out their lunacy.

How long do you think we can survive a 17 trillion dollar deficit - soon to be 20 trillion; a growing and bloated government with a shrinking private sector; increased taxes when millions are still out of work and no jobs on the horizon; and abuses of power that go unpunished? Throw in moral decay for good measure before guesstimating your answer.
Those were the ingredients in ancient Rome before it fell.
A few more major cities going bankrupt leading to a domino effect...and wallah...we have to learn Chinese. At least you and all your liberal pals won't have to worry about being accused of undermining our new communist government or becoming political prisoners. You'd fit right in.
Yike, you claim to have been a school teacher? What did you teach? Shop?

"How long do you think we can survive a 17 trillion dollar deficit - soon to be 20 trillion;"

-You should ask George and his Republican congress (some of whom are still serving) what they're plan was when they took us off the surplus? In 2000 the CBO estimated the debt would be paid off by now.

" a growing and bloated government with a shrinking private sector;"

- Where's the private sector shrinking and how does the above relate to the Roman Empire?

" increased taxes when millions are still out of work and no jobs on the horizon;"

- Most people are paying lower taxes now than they were in 2008.

" and abuses of power that go unpunished?"

- Again, show the parallel with the Roman Empire.

" Throw in moral decay for good measure before guesstimating your answer."

- your comic book/movie version of history doesn't reflect real history. The Roman Empire was not as depraved as has been portrayed in pop culture.

I don't know if you just make this sht up or if you're just regurgitating right-wing talking points. Lemme ask you this: What did Stossel suggest would turn us around from "certain" collapse?

Obama is fanning the flames of a race war.
no, You are.

DARVO stands for “Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender.” The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim into an alleged offender. This occurs, for instance, when an actually guilty perpetrator assumes the role of “falsely accused” and attacks the accuser’s credibility or even blames the accuser of being the perpetrator of a false accusation.

the right wing racism gig to a T.

for as much as you all like to yell 'plantation' do you ever think there will come a day when you figure out that black folks think conservatives are racists?

<quoted text>IfObama wasn't president, just an average Joe &, you didn't know his parents, what race would you say he is? Apply the same method to Zimmerman. I'm quite sure the results are different! All genes aside, Obama is black because that's who he self identifies with. He could say he's white all he wants, when he looks in the mirror, the truth in his reflection says otherwise! Can't say the same for Zimmerman. See it's ignorance to you because, in your eyes, you're wondering why he chose to self identify as black. Looking at the situation with a bias. Not understanding that, that choice was made for him at birth when his skin began to darken. I'm quite sure you would've been looking at his family strange when he was a child, he being the only black member of his family. White mother, white sister, & an adopted little African boy. Yea that's just what you would've thought, just like most folks that his family encountered. For some strange reason, you all like to lie to yourselves. Well you can't hold Obama responsible for your lies. What do you see when you look at Obama? What do you see when you look at Zimmerman? You can't be ignorant enough to believe that Johnson & Johnson would've paid for his defense had he been identified as Hispanic. Trust me, that claim was made by his attorney to take the racial aspect way from the prosecution. He quickly used his white heritage to get him out of trouble his entire life! It's clear, you believe in magic also huh!
He does identify himself with being black because he is. He just can't identify himself with the "black experience" from a personal standpoint because doors were always opened for him and he was raised by a white family.

Obama always wanted to belong to and be accepted by the black community by his own admission but, instead of using his skills to organize and bring people together, he uses his present platform to divide us for personal and political gain and speaks out of turn in the role of president creating even more division.

"The police were wrong..."
"If Trayvon were my son, he'd look like me..."
And says these things before knowing all the facts and has to backtrack just to keep the peace.

This is not characteristic of good leadership but political activism.

He is supposed to serve all of us and look out for the best interests of us all. Not just those who will vote for his party again.

He was never qualified for the highest office in the land or this role of leadership from the very beginning. And he still isn't.

Political activists do not belong in positions of power. On either side. That's why he and Eric Holder gotta go.

I hadn't read that far down, that was funny.

In my discussion with Galt I'm liking the idea of bloated city governments going bankrupt, maybe that's what the libertarian revolution will look like.

So why don’t blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid 20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence — and memory — of black voters.

In talking about race, conservatives have all the moral authority of a pimp talking about women’s rights.

Sonic,
You people should learn how to lead by example, and not by force.
You people still get out the belt and give your kids a whuppin' when they misbehave. That is but one example.
And don't tell me that you don't whup your kids. I know you do.

You mean the Mark Sanford who pushed for an amendment to promote economic development in the underserved region of the Appalachian Regional Commission because of excessive waste and duplication and who cheated on his wife like Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy?
Guess you'd have no problem with the mayor of your city groping and tongue kissing your wife on the street and confessing he had a problem and "needed help" and would fight to keep him in office.
You are one of the reasons I fear for this country.
Haven't you left yet?

Ya know, if you move out of the country you can still get your social security checks. That stipend goes a long ways in under-developed/developing countries.

Lord Obama flies to Europe in his pair of private 747's to preach about how global warming is gonna kill us all unless we tax the hell out of rich white guys (particularly ones that run Evil Corporations).

Then he comes back and starts whipping up the Useful Idiots over racism and the Martin/Zimmerman fiasco.

Anybody still noticing we're above 7.5% unemployment FOR MORE THAN FOUR AND A HALF YEARS?

Anybody still paying attention that we don't have answers on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, etc.?

Lord Obama is a master at redirection. And his Useful Idiots, the Socialist/Democrat voters with their gnat-sized attention spans and miniscule IQ's are always there for him.

The sad reality is that if Farm State Republicans voted against farm subsidies, the Democrats would use that as a club to drive them from office.
Nothing is likely without strong bipartisan agreement on a range of subsidies affecting both sides of the fence.
So both criminal enterprises need to join together to, as Carol would put it, destroy this country!

<quoted text>So by your understanding, I should look at all white people like racist for the ignorance of some. Is that what you're saying? I should definitely look at you like a racist, given the fact that all your role models were self proclaimed racist!, right?
No, I'm saying you should conduct yourself in your actions and appearance that demand respect.

There are plenty of white men who are looked at with suspicion by other whites because they emit a sense of being suspicious.

Ignorance doesn't have a race or color. Self-pride doesn't either. Each one of us has control over one of them. There's nothing any of us can do about the other.

Fortunately, ignorance only exists in a small minority.

Why focus on what can't be changed and, instead, on what can?

Most Americans want unity. It's people like Al Sharpton who don't. Ever thought about that?
