Where is the outrage? Samuel also said that he only voted for Obama because he was black. Wow what a double standard. The silence we hear from black people on this issue is disturbing and it discredits their propaganda!
hmmmm

Take it somewhere else, Terry.

The reason Obama got elected was that he wasn't Republican and it was a bad year for Republicans.....who would vote for a party that would consider Palin a viable candidate for VP? What a ditz.

Maybe the Replicans will wise up this year and choose people who actually have brains. We still have a little time before we know.

2012 is shaping up to be another "bad year" for Republicans. So far they haven't given me a reason to vote for any of them. If they continue to focus on Obama's Christian values instead of the needs of the Nation they will lose the White House again. The GOP seems to have nothing. Again.

I can't vote for Democrats this year. Even if Pelosi and Reid are from other states, their ideas, leadership and attitudes seem to be the party mantra. This country is being run by anti-American egoists.

Hmm you are an idiot. Samuel said he did not give a crap about any issue. He said that he voted for Obama solely on the pigment of his skin. He is a racist! Let me guess, you don't like Palin because she is a strong woman. She is ten times smarter than Joe. Biden

Terry, I don't mind you calling me an idiot...you know the ol' saying, "It takes one to know one".

The reason I don't like Palin is that she doesn't do her research before running her mouth, she has no class, and she has no business on the world stage with her yokel accent. Running the country doesn't require being cutesy; it does require showing intellect.

Wasn't it Obama who said that he had been to all 57 states and he can't even talk without reading from his tela-prompter. You are a typical hypocrite!

So, you are saying that, even though he may not be the president you wanted, he has enough sense not to make himself look like a fool when he is talking on a subject. He must have learned from his mistake about the 57 states. Palin doesn't ever seem to learn anything. She probably can't even read a teleprompter.

In 2008, the Republicans offered us nothing. They have a chance to make up for it this year.....but will they? I hope so.
This nomination process ends up making all candidates look like fools. The country needs to find a better way of handling that.

Yeah. That's when their taxes are due. It would be a nice way to say, "Thank you".

Do you really believe Palin can't read? Keep drinking the Obama kool-aid! Obama has turned you idiots into sheeple!

Blacks comprise 12.6 percent of Americans

February contains 16.7 percent of the days in a year

http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000...

The people who actually were the original Americans do not have an Native American history month.

The first outsiders to come to America do not have a Spanish or Portugeuse History month

and the people who brought us the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States do not have a White history month.

Soooooo?

Asian Aericans comprise 5.6 percent of all Americans, they deserve 20.44 days of Asian American History.....round that up and its 3 weeks.

Disgusted Republican says, "So?"

In reply to Tonti, the point being made is that once we legislate a period of time to honor the history of any one race or nationality, we should equalize the equation to reflect the make up of the country and devote a proportionate amount of time to each and every division.

America only caters to black people. They just can't do enough for them.
