    I think it is a DNC tactic which claims to represent the left to moderate Democrat, although I know better.

    Falling back on every racially charged issue since Obama burst onto the scene:

    - Rev. Wright's "God Damn America"
    - Shirley Sherrod's NAACP video conference
    - Rush Limbaugh's "Double-Chocolate Orea" connotation
    - All the "Obama money" posters, banners and other such images on T-shirts, etc.
    - Hanging a makeshift man in the image of the nation's 44th President from a tree

    I'm sure there are plenty of others, but these such things should never happen in a country that claims "we're all Americans".
    Maybe you'd like to prove out all those claims you make here, instead of just throwing the bomb and disappearing?

    Here is an example.....

    Is it OK to hang an effigy of Sarah Palin from a noose, as a West Hollywood couple has recently become infamous for doing, but not an effigy of Barack Obama?

    Some conservatives, including county Supervisor Michael Antonovich, see a double standard at play. Antonovich has ordered county counsel to investigate whether the misguided Halloween display at a house on North Orange Grove Avenue is a hate crime.

    That stupid Sarah Palin effigy - latimes.com
    Sarah Palin, well that is just snickeringly funny, Obama? Oh hell no, the entire conservative movement must be racist....give me a break.

    It's racist because white people have been called monkeys for generations and black people dont commit suicide.

    At the most, I think it's probably one of many "tactics" the DNC uses to stir up controversy, but it's not something I put much stock in. The GOP has it's own equivalent tactics. To me, that's just the nature of politics at this point. Both parties have their annoying tactics that they use to distract from more intellectual debate whenever their party is in trouble. If you read any "insider" accounts from political campaigns, you'll find this out. But I would hardly call those tactics "THE liberal tactic" or "THE conservative tactic" as j-mac was doing.

    However, all one has to do is watch a little MSNBC, or any of the three lemming news broadcasts to see these memes develop and be put out there as the narrative....It's Bull.

    Liberal politicians do it. People like you defend their use of it. Common liberal tactic. Its no different than the Gabby Giffords aftermath. People blamed the shooter on conservatives....then when it was proven that there was no connection instead of just saying...yeah...you are right...that was a bull**** kneejerk stretch people like you said "yeah...well...still...maybe not in this case, but its still a problem because of conservative talk show hosts". You dont have the honesty, grace, or just good sense to say..."yeah...that was wrong...sorry". You are still doing it in this thread.
