Lovie Smith ought to be fired for being a crappy coach and a bigot.

Who cares what color Obam's skin is unless you're a racist bastard.

Why wouldn't he be moved? He is black isn't he? Haven't seen or heard from a black person yet that didn't want him elected and people are saying it wasn't a race based campaign. Who are they trying to BS!

You've embarrassed the real papa bear and yourself. Learn your history the maybe you could empathize with the plight of another.

Too bad that the 1,452 african amercian babies aborted every day will never get to see a black man be president. If President elect Obama is the most powerful man on earth, perhaps his first act should be to stop the genocide of his own race through abortion. Since 1973 over 13 million black babies have been aborted.

Lovie Smith is just another of the 99% blacks who voted based on skin color. I didn't know Lovie supports Marxist policies.

Hate to break it to you guys.

Went you are done whining, Obama is still going to be president-elect.

And if you aren't done by January, he will still be president.

And frankly, I understand why Lovie would be emotional.

In case you forgot, he grew up in Texas, and would have spent part of his childhood in the segregated south.

For any person who was once told they were second class, seeing a person who looks like you ascend to the presidency would certainly be emotional.

But in case you don't care about that.

Obama is still president-elect.

Thanks for the condescension. You really reach a lot of people with that.
Let me break something to you. I judge people by the content of their character, not by the color of their of their skin. I wish others would as well. It's a shame that all too often that appears to be a one way street in our society.

How many of those homeless and parentless black babies have YOU supported? Fed, clothed, fostered, adopted, emotionally supported??

That's what I thought.

Can it hypocrite.

I'm not anti-abortion, but I would like to know how you know those babies are parentless (they do have a mother, right?) and homeless?

Seems a bit specious to me, especially the charge of hypocrisy. That's like saying you shouldn't advocate for the homeless because you don't take them into your home. Well, maybe that's not a bad point ...

I plan on applying the same level of compassion to B.O as the left did to George Bush. You got to love the looinies, they are all fro free speech until it is something they disagree with. Be prepared to get an extremly high does of your own medicene for the next four years.

I have a fairly high tolerance for insults from people who can't figure out how to run spell check.

I'm a white boy born and raised in Chicago. I voted for Obama. Not because of his skin color. I voted against a corrupt government that advocated assassination, torture, and total disregard for human rights.
Obama is a good man he will not let these things continue.
