    To me he has started doing some good things. I think what he has done good has outweighed what he has done poorly. A little. Barely.

    My greatest fear for an Obama presidency is that what he will be remembered for is "first black president". He has the potential to be so much more than that.

    I would have a very hard time not voting for Colin Powell. Condi I would have to consider, but it depends on where she stands on alot of issues that she really does not discuss. I will grant that few if any people in this country know more about foreign policy, and is able to articulate what she knows extremely well.

    No more predictable than the lavish fawning of affection on the Hopemeister by one of his lapdogs.

    Wow. Just wow. You disagree with their politics, so that makes them "uncle toms"?

    Why don't you man up and tell me yourself, champ, instead of playing the histrionic drama queen and talking through others.

    I find it very telling that you, again, start throwing the race divide around by calling powerful and respected African Americans "Uncle Tom's" because you have a disagreement with their politics. "Blacks in white-face"? Seriously?

    I, for one, am glad that all the black people I know, for the most part, have a sane view of race relations rather than this blathering nonsense you have spewed from day one. You and Al Sharpton are everything that is wrong with race relations in this country today.

    Wow, just wow??????? Hell, yeah I disagree with their politics...but that is not what makes them Uncle Toms. The fact that they failed to hold the Bush administration accountable, in all things, but especially things which impacted blacks and persons of color, negatively, specifically, and could continue being "mouthpieces" for the administration, is what makes them Uncle Toms.
    I know it might be hard for you to understand, but the notion or the concept of "selling one down the river", still resonates within the black community. They simply forgot where they came from...and that is a big "no-no".

    Yeah, they came from AMERICA, not AMURRCA. I would hope that the black community would be proud of the status achieved and the honor shown by these great people.

    Kinda funny since if anyone is an "Uncle Tom" (or an "Oreo" for that matter) it would be Obama...


    Obama is a privelaged white kid whose black half simply gave him skin tone. His life has been run by whites. His background is a white. His lifestyle is basically as a white. His education is as a white. The black half ran out on him when he was a kid.
    Barring skin tone Obama for all practical purposes is a privileged white who has nothing in common with most blacks beyond outer skin color/hair type.


    I think its safe to say the person who made the comment voted for Obama..I think its safe to say they voted for Obama based on the visual color of his skin.
    They voted for what they call an Uncle Tom.

    Obama WINS over Notra Dame????

    WTF does he need to talk about ABORTION at a Catholic University graduation ceremony? The guy has the class of a turd.

    Obama calls for 'common ground' on abortion at Notre Dame

    SOUTH BEND, Indiana (CNN) -- President Obama delved into the abortion debate in a controversial Notre Dame commencement address Sunday, calling for a search for common ground on one of the most divisive issues in American politics.


    President Obama's appearance at the University of Notre Dame's graduation touched off a storm of controversy.

    Addressing a sharply divided audience at the storied Catholic university, Obama conceded that no matter how much Americans "may want to fudge it ... at some level the views of the two camps are irreconcilable."

    Keyes, priest arrested at Notre Dame protest
    By TOM COYNE 2 days ago

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Former Republican presidential hopeful Alan Keyes, a Roman Catholic priest and 19 others were arrested Friday after marching onto the University of Notre Dame campus to protest President Barack Obama's planned commencement speech.

    The arrests marked the third straight Friday that protesters have been detained. They are angry about the school's decision to give Obama, who supports abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research, an honorary degree and have him speak at Sunday's commencement.

    "Notre Dame is arresting a priest," the Rev. Norman Weslin, founder of the Lambs of Christ abortion protest group, said as Notre Dame security personnel put plastic restraints on his wrists Friday. "Why are you arresting a priest for trying to stop the killing of a baby? You've got it all backward."
