Obama released his tax return of the last 8 years. McCain did not pick Romney as a running mate because he said Romney's returns made him unelectable.

Calling him Kenyan, and Muslim. Constantly trying to link him to people like Farrakhan with whom he has no relation. Pictures of the President and First Lady looking like apes. Pictures of the White House with water melons. Claims that President Obama is the Black welfare President. Race baiting from the Rat Wing is unending.

Was it Romney who promised 'transparency'?

President Barack Obama set a high bar for open government, and he set it quickly.

A minute after he took office, the White House website declared his administration would become “the most open and transparent in history.” By the end of his first full day on the job, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging “a new era” and “an unprecedented level of openness” across the massive federal government.

But three years into his presidency, critics say Obama’s administration has failed to deliver the refreshing blast of transparency that the president promised.

“Obama is the sixth administration that’s been in office since I’ve been doing Freedom of Information Act work.… It’s kind of shocking to me to say this, but of the six, this administration is the worst on FOIA issues. The worst. There’s just no question about it,” said Katherine Meyer, a Washington lawyer who’s been filing FOIA cases since 1978.“This administration is raising one barrier after another.… It’s gotten to the point where I’m stunned — I’m really stunned.”

David Sobel, senior counsel at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said that “despite the positive rhetoric that has come from the White House and the attorney general, that guidance has not been translated into real world results in actual cases.… Basically, the reviews are terrible.”

You keep hammering on the 'small things'... and avoid Obama's record.

McCain didn't do any of that.

He is from Kenya. That isn't racist. It's a fact.

He is linked to rev wright. I haven't seen anyone link him to Farrakhan. Who did that?

Obammy is the welfare president. Who said black welfare president? How could he be called the black welfare prez during the 08 campaign? He wasn't prez yet.

Photos of apes and watermelons? Who did that? What part of the campaign did that?

Sorry but you lie. Show prove. Show who did it.

I will tell you inwould fully support any racist who will bring back the economy. Race is like at the bottom of the list in importance. It's jobs stupid. But you racist liberals keep worrying about race while YOUR RACIST president has the black youth unemployment at 40%. It sounds to me like blacks would be better off with a racist as president. They can't stand much more of obammy.

He is not from Kenya. So again you are calling lies facts. end of story. As usual the Rat Wing is running its whisper campaign through Fox, Limbaugh. and others of their ilk, and then pretend it is not part of the "official" campaign. I didn't say anything about Rev Wright. I said Louis Farrakhan. But of course you want to hold the BLACK President responsible for what the BLACK minister said not only when Obama was not there but for when after Rev Wright had retired from that church. Any time any Black person says something racist, inflammatory, of even commit’s a crime the Rat Wing tries to assign it to the President when the only thing that connects them is their skin color. THAT IS RACISM. Take your phony two face lies and shove them up that hairy shit covered ass of yours.

Louis Farrahkan is a frequent speaker at Obama;s Chicago church. Yes he does know him. I doubt they are bosom buddies, but I am sure Calypso Louie is proud of Obama none the less. And Obama agrees with much of what Farrahkan preaches.

Don't you just live it when some liberal dope references some liberal website as if it's fair and unbiased information.

Might as well just grab a brochure from the DNC.
