    OK.
    So long as you call for Obama to resign.
    Honest Injun... compared to the link below.

    How can a man who sat and listened to this crap for 20-years hold the Presidency?

    Have a listen... to all of it to refresh your memory of what poison our president sought out... sought out and tolerated... defended... exposed his children to. This BS is verbal crack cocaine. Our president obviously an addict, lack the judgment to steer well wide of such garbage, instead he defended it.

    I didn't hear any derogatory racial slurs uttered by Mr. Obama in that video, and to my knowledge he has not been known to use such language.

    Weak, lame, but... expected.
    At the pulpit, Wright uses the N-word, not in this vid, but he does.
    This on vids he had FOR SALE!
    What don't need to know what else went on that isn't recorded... if this is their marketing material. Doh.

    Obama's racial training reared its ugly head with the incident with the MA police. He also used it against Bill Clinton during the primaries.

    In MA Obi brings up the possibility it was a race issue, says the cops acted stupidly... this without knowing the facts. This for a local dispute he should have no say in because:

    1. It is local.
    2. He doesn't have all the facts.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    This time I have say I think this is much a do about nothing. As much as pin headed idiot Reid and 99% of his party are he said nothing that wasn't true and was in fact a complement, sort of.

    Had he said Obama is one of those niggers who can pass as white if you don't look at him, now that would have been offensive to most everyone.

    Obama like most educated people sounds a bit more intelligent than say the average person you might find in the south or even in many inner city locations when talking like an idiot is cool to young ignorant people of any race.

    Axe any foo hoo been der, bro.

    And how is using the term "honest injun" racist!? Are you implying that Steele thinks Native Americans are inferior?

    No, the equivalent of Reid's comments coming from Steele would have been something like this:

    We lost to Barack Obama because John McCain is just another old cracker.

    Sorry, but a harmless joke directed at his own race and the use of a common Americanism in a context totally unrelated to race is not the same as lauding a black man for not having a Negro dialect. It's sad that you cannot see the difference.

    Partisan? How am I partisan? Steele can step down, or not step down. I don't really care what the GOP does because I'm not a damn Republican. The issue here is Reid's idiocy and utter crassness.

    Negro dialect is NOT the same thing as "honest injun" or poking fun at his own race. Good lord!
