Black people are too forgiving. I would never forgive that statement. In this day and age, a comment like that is unacceptable and he should hand in his resignation. Whether you like Obama or not, as I didn't like Bush, you still should respect the office of the presidency. The congressman more so because he's a part of the governing body.

Too many of these so-called government representatives are getting bold with their disrespect and it's only alienating the country and dividing people. That is not what government representatives are sent to Washington to do.

Well damn!

How can they hate the president <based on the color of his skin> and refer to him as tar-baby, when it is their very system that runs this country?

GEEZ! What a hater.

Haters



Sounds like members of Congress are not for the American way. After all this country is the Melting-Pot of the world.
Just shows that ignorance/hate runs amuck in the white minds of this country.

What we hate is anything that destroys a country we built. That would be Barack Obama and most black people.

How can one black man destroy the country when the majority of congress that make the laws are white. Are you saying that 40 million blacks have more power in this country than 300 million white people.

Where is the apology for his association with Jeremiah Wright? Do whites ever get an apology, how about America, does she get an apology from these scavengers? Why not show them the door to Rwanda? Instead, whites have to apologise to the destruction of the USA!

A president shares a third of this country's absolute power. A president like Obama (and Bush) who urinate on the Constitution has even more. As far as the whites, yeah a lot of these liberals voted him in as a reaction to Bush. But the fact remains he is systematically destroying our country.

This is not about who voted for Obama. No president in the United States have absolute power. The congress is the ruling power of this country.
