He said it well over a year ago and only NOW they want him out?

Convenient. Like they've never uttered something totally stupid themselves. He who has never uttered a stupid thing should step forward.

Nobody? Then STFU

as stated in the story-you can bet heads would roll if a Republican had said anything racial against the president, this is just another thing that the Democrates will sweep under the rug.

Reblufflicans will do anything neccesary to shrink the numbers of the other side. This should have been an issue a year ago. If they can find time to dig for ignominious banter, then our ecomomy should be on the up and up already. It would be nice for both parties to focus on getting folks back to work then for them to be "arm wrestling" each other.

But what about Joe Biden's description of obama as being "clean", let the Dems keep talking and show their true feelings, it's very entertaining.

He has "no negro dialect" just because he chooses to use proper English instead of "ebonics" ? I think with that he sets a good example for ALL Americans. If you're an American (or even if you're not but you're living here and enjoying a better life) then learn to speak PROPER English!
