At least on BET or in the Affirmative Action Club of Amerika.
That reminded me of Obama lecturing a (half awake) senior class in a Kalamazoo, Michigan high school.

Get a load of this.

First he tells them:“Don’t make excuses. Take responsibility not just for your successes. Take responsibility where you fall short as well.”

Then came the coup de gras: "He returned to the responsibility theme in Kalamazoo, paired the message with a lament about Washington finger-pointing, when he said,'It’s the easiest thing in the world to start looking around for someone to blame.'"

Unfuckingbelievable

Funny as hell.
But the best is when the Boy Messiah is caught saying "I'm not stupid"
Is there an Award for this stuff? Like the Ignoble Award or something like that?
Shouldn't the Noble Committee have something to say here?
Like "We'll be back in 50 years after our embarrassment wears off"??
HJAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHA
the USA needs a government that will get out of the way so that those who want to work can find jobs instead of unemployment benefits...

Obama and the DemoKKKrats prefer permanent government dependency....

Fudgepacker whining:

Nobody gives a damn about homosexuals, so they play the race card.....

GLAAD responds:“Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”

You are continually right on target John Galt. You may want to think about running for Public office Sir.
It's odd you would claim that he is right after the RIGHT went public with threats to not hire people if Obama won the election. Democrats on the other hand are, as you say laying out a safety net for those laid off by the top 5% of the wealthiest people in America.

So now you want to back peddle and accuse Dems of preventing people from working while the memory is still fresh of Rep saying they won't hire people? That's a lot of moxy you have there.

Next you will attempt to piss on America and tell us it's raining...no?
Whatever

No wonder Cracker Barrel and A&E told GLAAD to take a hike. They are lying about what was said.

NAACP was never part of the picture. GQ used a quote from a book published more than a year ago. A little late to claim offense especially about a teen-ager's memories from over 50 years ago.

Obama and the DemoKKKrats have created an environment where employees are a liability....

the best thing to come out of the Phil Robertson drama is that the homosexual card has no staying power....

perhaps businesses and politicians will no longer fold in the face of the queer lobby....

Oh so now you all admit it. But you want to shift blame. Well we all know you Obama also force those execs to fly to Cap Hill in their private Jets to ask for bell out money because... Gulp... they want to help America get back to work.

WOW you guys shovel it out buy the boat load...

Then who was to blame for those same Execs giving themselves a bonus for lying to America?

Perhaps if less of THIS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Bell_sca... ...happened we more people who actually WORK could get jobs to feed their families and Reps wouldn't have to complain about how it's going to kill the Top 5% wealthiest people in America to pay extra tax's.

He should close Tax loop holes if you don't want to pay taxes. I bet that will shut up the crying.

The Magic Negro's *Race to the Top* bullchit is clearly concerned about only one race.

This sort of trash that he speaks to yungin's is tired ol' tripe. Right out of Hollywood movie scripts.

He's a talker, not a walker.

You're a bit slow aren't ya?

I'm certain you already know the truth or if you don't you are too dim witted to be having this discussion. Something the clearly uninformed here can relate too.

There are several reputable sources in those links. Pull more BS out your ass.

We have ourselves a bonafide liar right here. But to those who already admitted the truth I say this... You should fined better people to follow. Your entire party is a mess.

No one is going to allow you to win the House if Obama Care proves to be helping people. You all will be kissing Hillary's ass for another 2 DEM terms. lol

Yes it is.

I said you Rep. Would those be Republicans? It shows solidarity from top to bottom.

So how can you then turn around and tell people Dems are trying to prevent America from going to work?

Everyone of you that identifies with the right were pushing this empty threat on America. Toothless tigers...
