    It simply made a statement she supports Obama. No quote by Dean at all. Having the first lady on your show doesn't mean she voted for Obama.

    No evidence of campaign contributions or other support. Has she ever attended a Obama fund raising dinner? No evidence for that either.

    Dubious to make a statement either way.

    What is clear is that the right wing want to blame everyone but her for her problems.

    Wait, I thought she was being unjustly persecuted for being a Conservative.

    There goes that theory down the drain.

    Where does it quote Dean? It just makes the statement.

    Did she give money?

    What is clear is that the right wants to blame everyone but Dean for her problems.

    Well considering "fact checking" is required to print a story, I suppose I will trust the media on this one.

    Here is another source if it matters.

    Alleged racist Paula Deen gave lots of help to Barack Obama - Naked DC

    They call Deen a "major campaign contributor" to boot.

    I love Rabid conservo-speak... answer your questions rather than ask vague questions... Fact is Walmart is moving away from full time workers, past part-time workers and hiring temp or contract workers as they get ZERO benefits and depending on the method of filing, zero unemployment compensation when they are let go- a process called churning. since you brought up the youth unemployment rate, just how many workers at Walmart are 'youth'?

    Now about the hamburger BS... Walmart is like the rich guy handing his workers 3 hamburgers for the week knowing full well the taxpayer- something Walmart has a very sketchy past with- will keep the worker fed, clothed and medically taken care of. In a way Walmart is the wave of our future, corporations de-facto making the government responsible for the worker's well being.

    Walmart has already gone to all the places, and left a wake of crashed small businesses for miles around each store here in Oklahoma, DC is the last frontier, I guess like farming marginal land, all the other places are under plow. I can see them having an 'Alexander the Great' moment. How far into the wilderness can you go? How much land area do you have to occupy? When is big, big enough?

    The question to ask is will Walmart bring in NEW jobs or displace workers and small business owners for a net loss? Walmart isn't Mercedes, USA. Nor is it Beretta USA- Walmart doesn't build anything, it doesn't provide anything new to the consumer- just more of the same at cheaper prices. People were getting their TVs, T-Shirts, Jeans, and groceries someplace before Walmart showed up. Those places employ people, have owners, pay property taxes. Given what I've seen of Walmart's coming to rural America, I'd say it isn't a win-win for any area.

    Typical short sighted liberalism.


    That's retarded.
    How then does their comptetition recognize a union and pay their workers more?

    They used major. It must be true. Where did Dean say how much money she has given?

    I don't care, all I know is that the same people who were outraged that Deen was being persecuted for being Conservative are now saying she supported Obama! Which is it?

    Then show me the website from PDPW that displays the works cited information. It shouldn't be too difficult being that it is from a government source.

    I am not here to debate party politics with anyone.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Celebrities' Political Affiliations Pictures - Paula Deen (Democrat) - UsMagazine.com

    Let me guess - It's all a lie?

    Every damn media outlet is saying she A) contributed to the Obama campaign and B) campaigned for him.

    So much for the racist conservative theory..
