Jackson Lee, and Obama are racist.

To say that they can't be racist, is racist in itself.

No, to imply that a person can not be a racist because of their race or party affiliation is in fact a racist notion.

Lying is lying, whether it is racist or not. Lying is the natural language of politicians, not all are racist. Only the liberals that believe that minorities are disadvantaged by birthright are racist.

OK, Congresswoman, since we’re talking only about “elements” how do you feel about those elements of the Tea Party that are made up of Democrats and Independents? How about the African-Americans who attend Tea Parties? How about the Black Tea Party movement?
For that matter, what do you say to African-Americans who chose not to vote for Obama in 2008? Were they racist? How about white Americans who did vote for Obama but promise they will not do so a second time? I suppose they overcame their racism in 2008 but will be victims of a relapse should they fail to offer a repeat performance.
And let us not forget the many conservatives who defended Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice against attacks from liberals. How do you label conservative and liberal responses in those cases, Ms. Lee?
To many pertinent, un-disputable facts, your going to confuse her and give her a migraine.

Yes. It would be one person believing their race has a superior disposition to another's. I don't get your point about Lee and Obama. Clarify.

No racism is the impetus for discrimination assclown. Being racist refers to feelings and ideas. Those feelings are the impetus for discimination where people are treated unequally.

Progressives are literally melting down as the lose the public's approval to spend a trillion a year we do not have!. Shela Jackson Lee needs someone to raise the debt limit on her race card!!!

ha, ha, ha, ha

America elected Obama in 2008 to prove they are not racist, in 2012 they will send him home to prove they are not stupid.

We failed when we allowed progressives to addict them to public assistance. If this was never done to them only the strong would have survived and America would still be a thriving super power and not a pathetic carbon copy of everything bad in Europe.

Col. Allen West proves without a doubt that nearly all black people in America have been enslaved by the racist democrat party and are forced to work the 21st plantation for scraps. The work is easier, just voting every two years, but the pay and damage to their communities are much worse.

Leftists are very crafty. Look how they have taken down many parts of Europe. It is a real Greek tragedy.

Why are we even debating this?

He WILL get re-elected no matter how bad things get.

The main thing is to get out there and vote.If nothing else,you can say "I didn't just sit at home and let him win.I tried to vote him out."

If you don't vote,then you have no right to gripe about how he's doing his job!
