the writer of this article is an idiotic bleeding heart who wants to see racism behind every tree. even if the people throwing peanuts were NOT democrat plants from move on.org , you cannot take the leap that one racial incident paints the whole party. how a socialist paper in the UK is supposed to address US politics with any authority is also a mystery...

Hello...Stuck on stupid today are we???
You were the moron claiming all minorites who vote for Obama are doing it to maintain their welfare benefits.

I simply pointed out the simple fact that the majority of those receiving welfare are WHITE, yet not a peep out of you about all the whites voting to maintain THEIR welfare checks coming.

That's why your comment was simple race-baiting; typical GOPasaur.

ROFLMAO.... You get the news concerning the polling, Romney's campaign and the expanding lead in battleground states....?

Romney, and his campaign are in shambles..... ROFLMAO... now he's reversing ground and promising to keep certain elements of the ACA intact.... another flip flop, people are abandoning Romney, Pennsylvania and Ohio as I said after the Clinton speech at the DNC, are off the table.

It's becoming increasingly impossible for Romney to get enough electoral votes to win.... Obama is moving in to make Romney

TAP-OUT!

Hey LEFTY.
You LEFTIES piss n' monn about middle-class wages while you whole heartedly want millions of illegals stealing jobs from Americans including Latino-Americans.......good for you.
The illegal job stealers impact the 2 bottom quintiles of the labor market the most.
A Mex-American carpenter who makes $20 a hour must compete with a illegal Guat.carpenter who will work for $14 an hour and sends 50% of his paycheck back to Guatemala.
An Afr-American 18 YO working at McDonald's after school must compete with an 25 YO illegal Mexican female , who f''uks up every order because of language ,because she works as a contract worker beating various taxes etc. and gets Fed Aid besides.
The bottom two rungs of the labor market take a major hit from the illegals.

Matters of racism are being dealt with by the Federal Court, that's why Arizona and Texas legislation concerning Immigration, Voter Id and District reorganizing efforts have been struck down by the Federal Courts lately, they aren't saying the Republicans are racist, but their agenda and idea are and unconstitutional where the GOP created those laws.

the impact is President Obama is expanding his campaign lead where it matters, Penn and Ohio are now off of the table..... Romney at this point has no way of getting enough votes without the Support of America's Minority and Women.

It's TAP OUT Time for Romney........ and his Anti-American supporters.......

Romney has been saying it for months...

"Obamacare is a job killer, businesses across the country have been asked what they think of Obama care, 3 quarters of those survived by the chamber of commerce said Obamacare makes it less likely for them to hire people. And perhaps most troubling of all, Obamacare puts you between the Federal government and your doctor. For all those reasons its important for us to repeal and replace Obamacare. What are some of the things we will keep in place? And must be in place for a reform, a real reform of the healthcare system. One we have to make sure people who want to keep their current insurance will be able to do so. Having 20 million people, up to that number of people, lose the insurance they want is simply unacceptable.

Number two, weve got to make sure that those people who have preexisting conditions know that they will be able to be insured. And they will not lose their insurance. We also have to assure that we do our very best to help each state in their efforts to assure that every American has access to affordable health care. And something that Obamacare does not do that must be done in real reform is helping lower the cost of health care and health insurance. Its becoming prohibitively expensive."

Given the high double digits unemployment rates within both the black and hispanic communities it is not surprising that they would oppose the current administration and its nightmarish economic policies. Obamanomics seeks to eradicate all private sector jobs and make us all beholden to big brother government for handouts.

Who cares what he promised the naive teabaggers? Election campaigns are made up entirely of lies and distortions anyway. We can only judge a candidate by what he does in office. Romney is the proud papa of Romneycare in Massachusetts. That makes him Obamacare's grandpa. Only the braindead think he is going to kill his own program.

Republicans are not racist. Bush supported immigration reform. So did McCain. Romney was in support of sanctuary cities in Massachusetts while governor. The Republican party always chooses a moderate on immigration. For some strange reason though they are all afraid of the rabid teabaggers.

Those virulent lunatics scare otherwise socially conservative hispanics away from the Republican party.
