    My opinion is Santorum is speaking of Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society". I think the speaker on O"Donnell's program is a race baiter for saying Santorum was speaking "code". His intent was to plant a thought of what Santorum was "really" meaning.

    That's the problem.

    I do however have this to say. That was definitely not a racist comment by Santorum, but I'm absolutely sick of this whole "America was better in the 1950s and 60s" myth bullcrap that some on the right keep on saying. It's complete BS. I'm sure black folk in this country just loved the 50s and 60s.

    So no, it's not racist. But it's ignorant as all hell.
    Doctors don't treat sickness by ignoring it. They learn all they can about it and then treat it. That's what we're doing here.

    The Democrats have not helped Black people. Just the opposite.

    Alright...so how do you suppose we "treat it"? Should we treat Limbaugh as well? It's a free country. If there's a market for the crap that Fox and MSNBC spew, then they have the right to exist.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Expose it. Whenever and wherever you see it, then treat it like we just did by exposing it. I hate race baiters. Don't you?

    Hmmm, well, you think this type of tabloidism is confined to MSNBC? Do you see any other media source as NOT BEING SICK?

    If your thread title had been CABLE NEWS NETWORKS ARE ALL SICK...then I'd buy your premise.

    But I would add "ALL RADIO TALK SHOWS" are sick along with your premise that MSNBC is sick.

    And I'm not excluding any because of their respective political leanings. I MEAN ALL are.

    They're selling the public agendas and outrageous "opinions" masquerading them as facts....or viable information. When in FACT they are disseminating pure bull****. ALL OF THEM!

    What is astonishing to me is that people freely accept all that is said as fact rather than mostly opinion. And they believe that bull****.

    Thanks...

    I don't see this kind of crap from the right. I do see the lefty heads spin when they are confronted with a Black conservative. I see the left expect a Black person to be liberal or they are "extreme". Ever hear of the "Crispus Attucks Tea Party" on MSNBC?

    KBS, MBC and SBS are sick too, perhaps you're a little too nationalistic to notice.

    BTW the BBC is the only one of those news organisations that regularly apologises if and when its coverage fails to report accurately or with due impartiality. When was the last time Fox or MSNBC apologised for its partisan hackery?

    Oh...I get it...more partisan bull****...

    Well, just as I thought. Now your "lean" has been disclosed.

    If you want to buy into the right - left nonsense...be my guest. They're all ****ed up...no matter what the political area, affilitation, party...etc.

    Drink all the propaganda kool-aid you wish.

    I would put the black speaker on the Chris O'Donnell program in that category. Who do you think is a "racist dog whistle"?
