    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.
    There you go again, attacking the messenger.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    I say we keep the pressure on. If this were reversed would liberals be opining on how we need to move on? I don't think so.

    Earlier I addressed a liberal member with direct quotes said at the time of Trent Lott's fall from power over a stupid line uttered at a Birthday Party of a long time member of Congress. The utter contempt for Lott, and the precedent set is clear. I got a response of not how they were different, but only that they were, and if I wanted to know how just ask. That was nearly 24 hours ago, and the poster has since responded to other posts in this thread so I know they had seen my direct call for them to explain.

    Trouble is that they can't. Liberals can not explain away a statement, no matter how benign, by a leader in the Senate, but for the designator behind his name, they would call for the immediate resignation of. And did with Lott.

    However, hypocrisy is not at real issue here, because the Liberals have worn that on their sleeve since 2006 with empty words on the way to their majority that they have all but cast aside the moment they were in power. No, what is at issue here is whether or not the repubs are going to show the same ruthless political courage in not letting go of this, or are they going to recede to the usual course of forgiving it in some sort of veil of taking the high road, some sort of rouse of bigger fish to fry? I hope not. We don't have even enough of a minority to be let in to simple negotiations, let alone affect anything legislatively, so they need to ramp it up.

    I don't care if the entirety of the Black community rises up in feigned support of Reid, the repubs need to hold true to the precedent that Reid, and his despicable cohorts in the Senate set with Lott, and force the issue. Use Allensky against them with the rule of make your political enemies hold true to their stated values. If it was good enough for Trent Lott, then by God, it's good enough for Reid.

    Everyone knows, had the letter R followed Reid's name....if articles started with Reid(R-Nev), he would have already been gone, the Rev. Sharptons and race baiters in this nation escorting him out the door.

    This national upset over supposed racial statements....is fake. It's political and thus selective outrage, this is just another example in a long line of them. You'll see the Sharptons now in denial, the NAACP speaking to Reid's record. It will all be forgiven and forgotten...until the Dems need the race card played again.

    Perhaps the next time "wolf" is cried, people will be more aware of it.

    I watched the Daily show a few nights ago and learned that democrats own the racial card and the republicans hold the tough on terrorist card.

    Also, in my own opinion I believe that the democrats hold the Hitler card and the Republicans hold the pinko commie card.

    This is very true.

    The unfortunate truth is if we as people could get over racism and view people as just people. The Jackson's and Sharpton's of the world would have no more power.

    Unfortunately racism does exist on all sides. If it did not groups like "Stromfront" and the "Black Panthers" etc would not exist.

    Racism is a cottage industry.

    It makes you question Obama's judgment, as does his 20-years at the feet of Wright.

    But terrorista? We didn't accuse him of that, but we accuse him of having abysmal judgment.

    And it was Obama that touted his "judgment".

    .
    Assuming you're a Republican, then your own post indicates that the Republicans, or at least some of them, were trying to paint Obama as a terrorist.

    I remember quite a few such statements being made during the campaign, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't Democrats making them.

    Sara Palin got in a few digs, too:

    Palin hits Obama for 'terrorist' connection

    Sarah Palin: Barack Obama 'palling around with terrorists'

    Try again...

    Comments on terrorist connections and palling around with terrorists is not calling anyone a terrorist except Ayers.

    Ayers is an admitted terrorist. Obama is his close friend (and protoge). Is that not "palling around with terrorists?"

    Our founding fathers were considered terrorists by the bloody british.
