    Meh ... screw Hoffa. His union abandoned the labor movement under his Daddy almost at the outset, and switched to voting for Republicans from Nixon onward, about the same time period the Democratic Party abandoned labor as well. Speaking at an Obama rally is just more proof he's of no importance to real reforms; no real union leader would ever be caught dead shilling for a Goldman Sachs houseboy, especially a racist one like Obama.

    I said this during the debate before on violent rhetoric, this is emotionally charged crap designed to work the masses into a frenzy. It adds nothing to the discourse and it is, IMO, despicable.

    If these obvious agenda-driven media outlets didn't feel the need to resort to such disingenuous tactics for the purposes of their own hyperpartisan lean, perhaps we could actually get some things done and have legitimate political discussions going on. Sadly, that's not the way things are. Fox News knows that their core demographic won't bother to research these things, so they have no problem doing it. Just look at the guy who posted it. You can tell from the video that the piece was chopped and edited. Doesn't that make you question what was left out? Or are you just so determined to have something to attack Obama with that you don't care? Are there seriously not enough legitimate things to criticize Obama about that you have to rely on this kind of weak crap? Personally, I would stick with those things as they don't hurt your credibility as much as this nonsense does.

    now, you recognize the importance of realizing what someone is saying rather than hyperventilating over the rhetoric. how wonderful! you no doubt will prove to be a consistent, honest left-winger who will apply the exact same standard to everyone who comes before you.


    why, I bet if I were to check back in time to the Cathy Giffords shooting, I would find post after post from you denouncing your fellow liberals for their idiotic treatment of Sarah Palin's use of target images!


    .... goes back and checks .....



    ... awww..... shoot. turns out not so much.

    Look forget the partisanship here for a sec...both sides do the same thing...everyday I get an email and everyone is more vicious towards obama than the next...the right has their white supremists that advocate violence.

    Anyone without pure partisanship behind them knows that hoffa was NOT advocating any violence towards repubilcians or the teaparty specifically...it was a rally call for labor to start getting off their ass's and start fighting for themselves and to get ready to vote...and guess what...thats what hes supposed to do...

    It helps that I don't like either party and have been complaining about this kind of substance-less, emotional-appeal rhetoric for years now.

    What exactly did President Hoffa do that was wrong?

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    What he did wrong is the same thing politicians and supporters of both sides have been doing. He is continuing the "us versus them" mentality that has caused no cooperation or compromise in finding "real solutions" to the problems in this country.

    Here's a hint to both sides. The GOP, Dems, liberals, and conservatives sides do not have it all right and it takes ideas and solutions from ALL sides to make this country great. The problem now is all sides think their way should be the ONLY way and now spend their time not in finding solutions but making sure the other side looks bad at all costs.

    It's real sad and no side is clean in this mess.
