Why these guys in this election?

And why only them?

There were many brave airmen who served in WWII that deserve to be honored too.

And then there are all the other wars America has fought since WWII.

Aren't any of the men and women who served in them important to Obama?

What's so special about the Tuskegee Airmen?

The Tuskegee Airmen, like many other black soldiers were treated awful, in subhuman ways, like second-class citizens, by the very same country they fought and died for. Therefore, to try and make up for the errors of the past, these black men will receive the recognition they so deserve...

Got it?

And before you come back in here like a bat out of h-e-l-l, you need to know that I'm black and served this country. Got it? Don't come in here with some nonsense,'cause I'm going to respond by slamming your a-z-z to the wall!!!

Now bring it on...

I get it.

The Tuskegee Airmen get special treatment because they are black like Obama.

More evidence that this election was about race after all.

Listen up okay? I have been in other forums with you. And some way, some how, you find a way to slip slide, Barack Obama, black folks, special treatment, and the whole nine yards into a debate that has nothing to do with Obama or even blacks in the first place.

Just face it, for some unknown reason, you've got a hard-on for blacks, especially Barack Obama!!!

I'm responding to their race card.

The Obama crowd didn't want race discussed during the election, but now they can't stop talking about how black Obama is.

Duh? Like duh??? Of course his race will now be discussed; He's the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT...THAT'S HISTORY. Right now things are magical and surreal. But, after January 20, 2009, things will quickly turn to business as usual.

It's only history to racist libs who care more about skin color than the the person's character.

If the left practiced what they preach Obama's race would not be of interest to them at all.

Now Obama and the libs have divided the country along racial lines by only honoring veterans who look like him instead of all the fine people who have sereved.

Great response to an inbred, buck-toothed racist moron.

Thank you for your service to this country.

Unfortunately for you I have connected the dots.

Black military veterans will be honored because Obama is their president whereas vets of other races will be ignored.

Obama sure didn't lie when he promised change.

Because it used to be that all our vets got equal attention from their commander in chief.

You're PLAYING the race card at every opportunity...dealing from the BOTTOM of the deck and pathetically obvious in the process. Eddie Haskell comes to mind.
