    OK, feel free to respond when you have a sensible answer. Your one-liners are tedious.

    "'I think it's based on racism,' Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. 'There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.'"

    I am failing to see how Wilson's outburst was in any way a racist one. Every comment made against an ethnic minority is not racist, there should be real reason to believe it is before making the accusation. Otherwise, it just makes the issue worse by adding more situations it can used in, even though there is no justification to do so.

    What exactly was racist about it? Are people going to get tired of being accused of racism with it eventually backfiring on people like Carter who use it to explain something it is not related to?

    He's a 'good ol boy', his district is all white and just happens to be next door to a black majority district. IF you think there aren't racial divisions in that area of the country you're sadly mistaken. He supports flying the Confederate flag at the state capitol.

    I think Carter had a point. Race is playing a role in the money that Wilson is raising. It's blacklash. Wilson is a neo-confederate.

    It's not all white. It's 26% black, which is about the same as the entire state.

    You could also say that the money his future opponent is raising is race based.

    Carter should take his own advise to Wilson and shut up. He ignores decorum by constantly criticizing the Presidents that followed him. Other presidents have refrained from that nasty practice, but Carter can't keep his mouth shut. It almost as if he is trying to make people forget that he was one of the worst presidents in history.

    Is Joe Wilson still a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans?

    If so, does he condone the activities of the "Lunatic" faction that now controls the SCV?

    Does Joe Wilson consider the Republican Party "the Party of Lincoln"?

    Does Joe Wilson support secession?

    Who's lying?



    Wilson is a major recipient of contributions from the health care industry.

    In fact, over his entire congressional career, health professionals represent Wilsonís top industry contributors, donating a total of $244,196 to his campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics OpenSecrets.org database. He received another $86,150 from pharmaceutical companies, $73,050 from insurance companies and $68,000 from hospitals and nursing homes.

    Among Wilsonís top contributors are the American Hospital Association, a lobby group that represents the interests of hospitals and health networks, and the American Medical Association, which represents physicians.

    You have a predominantly white district represented by Joe Wilson right next to a predominantly black district. There is division and tension along racial lines in that area.

    That's the main reason for the anti-HC Reform crap that has been bought & paid for by millions of dollars from the insurance & HC industry.
    IMO,...what we have been seeing all summer is the HC industry fighting desperately to maintain it's choke hold on the American people & protect their obscene profits.

    Now.....add to that recipe :a good helping of right wing...anti Democrat sentiment, anger at losing power in this country, Evangelical dogma & add a touch of ...good old racism &...what do you have??.......The hysterical town hall meetings, the Tea parties & an insurance company undercover agent/ U.S. Congressman yelling at the POTUS ............& all this have been bought & paid for through our insurance company premiums!

    That's what this fight is really all about.......Simple Greed!..& racism is merely one of the arrows in their quiver.

    (the really sad part about this is that many honest people in this country are being used as unwitting dupes by the HC industry to actually work against their own interests by protecting the profits of the very corporations who are ripping them off through the high premiums they charge!)

    What percentage of the US population is black? hint its less than "26%", that would make it a more than average represented district.


    You people seem a but racist to me over this nonsense.
