    He should step down. I don't agree with GOP attacks on Ried considering they were calling Obama a terrorist. But you know what, Ried should have known better then to say what he said.

    At one time in America, long long a go,--We use to have a thing called "Free speech". which has been replaced by Political Correctness. and in doing so, we lost our way.

    Please provide links where the GOP called Obama a terrorist... please.
    Otherwise this post should have a CRAPOLA ALERT attached.

    He's stinking up the place for sure, but a terrorist? ... perhaps economically.

    This whole fiasco reminds me of "The Emperor's New Clothes".

    You attacked Reid not for his statement but because you disagreed with his conclusion. You used Schwarzenegger as an example, saying that people who argued that no one would vote for someone with his accent were wrong.

    Whether they were right or wrong, or whether Reid was right or wrong, is irrelevant to whether the statement was racist.

    If I said "It's not likely that a black man can win in Alabama in a 99% white district" that is NOT racist. It's an analysis of the voting populace, based on history, polls, and past votes. If I say "The gay rights bill will not pass in Utah" I am not being homophobic.

    Clear now?

    Just saying "it's racist because he talks about race" isn't enough.
    WRONG - and there you go again saying what people think - I called Reid a racist because what he said was racist - and it doesn't matter that you come up with hypotheticals about what if you said whatever - this thread is not about what you may or may not want to say - it is about what Reid said - and what Reid said is a racist.

    Oh, so Obama was not a terrorist himself, he just was friends with terrorists. Well, of course, no one would leap to the conclusion of guilt by association.

    Except for that terrorist fist bump.

    Huffington Post - LOL - nice try though.

    Anyway - Barak hanging out with William Ayers and Reverend Wright...........

    Food for thought:

    Maybe Reid had something there when he said Obama is light skinned and doesn't talk with a negro dialect - meaning he could easily get away with his ties.

    No, you're not kidding. Wow.



    News flash: Snoop doesn't give a **** about you or other blue collar workers. He is a millionaire who has made his money off of convincing people like you that he's "keeping it real."



    Oh well ****, if he coached Pee Wee football, we should just skip Congress and elect him President!



    Setting aside the fact that Snoop is not a "normal every day person," you're right. I don't, because "normal, every day people" are ****ing stupid and should not be in charge of running anything, much less the country.

    I want normal people working at normal jobs. I want exceptional people running my country.

    If anybody is keeping it real? It is Snoop. O.K. How about Diddy? Or JayZ! They all keep it real. I am sorry you want some white bread that would not know real if it got all up on em. So whatever.

    What we need is a real person in office and the one we got? He is as close to real since we had Clinton
