    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    So, when is Reid going to be censured and frog marched to his favorite gulag? I believe it's Gitmo isn't it?

    But, it's swung in less than a year here.

    But, as the French (danged socialists that they are) say, plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose. (the more things change, the more they stay the same.)
    We ain't French. And this is a tad more than a pendulum swing. Health care, government rather than private sector attempts to creates, it's not the same philosophies. Claming this a pendulum swing is trying to say Obama's policies didn't have an effect. I think yer wrong.

    Not so unthinkable, really.
    Really? So, when Kennedy died and his successor couldn't be named(because there was a Repub Gov), you didn't think it unthinkable that a Repub could win in Massachusetts? Please.

    Personally I don't care, about Obama dialect. I wish he would fulfill the promises he made to the American people in order to get elected. Stop with the dialect -- let us see some action -- words do not create jobs regardless of what dialect you use.

    And the issue isn't about Obama's dialect, or lack of, but of the person who made a comment on his dialect.

And that although it may not have reared its ugly head here on the boards, perhaps in those dark corners of real lives you let loose with a few yourself.
    Nope. Never did. I have criticized actions, never political leans... except in a sarcastic way to attack the partisan hackery of others. Feel free to check my posts prior to Obama being President. You will not find ONE post attacking former President Bush. I may have disagreed with some of his policies (others I supported), but never once did I attack him or conservatives. Here OR outside of DP. That would be hypocritical, something I am not.

    You don't know me at all, j-mac. Not in the least.

    Now, when it is demo's crack at the plate, you all the sudden become this high minded pillar of etiquette, and judge of the high road.
    Not suddenly. Always have been.

    What it boils down to is that deep down you and the other libs that whine about this are aware that your saviour Obama, and his minions of thug so called leaders in the house and senate are failing big time. And that all the things GWB wasn't here at home, and around the world that liberals hypothesized and pondered, about how we should act as a nation, and what the American people want was pure BS, and is NOT working.

    It is demonstrable that we are weaker in the world's eyes, that Obama has granted a stage to the worlds thugs, and reprobates, that 2,000 page plus lies packaged as bills are transparent only in the fact that Americans know that they are being fleeced, and that this bumbling administration couldn't seem to solve it way out of a wet paper bag.

    You all lost Mass. for Christ sake! When will it become clear to you that this country always has been, and continues to be a center right country?


    It's pathetic to watch these days.

    All you are doing j-mac is demonstrating what I have always thought of you, no matter how much you deny it. You're a right wing hack. You can make all the silly accusations you like. Not only are they untrue, but you will be completely unable to find anything that supports your perception of me. It is a perception based in your OWN hackery... demonstrated by nearly every post you make.

    Yeah, right next to the jar of magic negro fairy dust.

    We are not all over the place....Sir. Obama was the first Democrat President we'd voted for since Carter I believe...or may have been Kennedy. We have a same sex marriage amendment in our constitution, it passed easily. Even our Senators...who are both Dems...are both blue dogs. Warner...as you know was a fiscal conservative, Webb coming in with Obama isn't exactly a lib. We're a mostly conservative arena and state however, like ither states we elect different partys to office. Just like Massachusetts.
    I meant we voted for Obama for president. I left out "Obama".

    I fully agree with you about it being a conservative state. Webb was a republican once. All of the dems are blue dogs and even Wilder was. We did once have a liberal governor here but it was so long ago I forget his name.

    I hate labels like liberal and conservative. I think it tends to stereotype people and cloud the real issues. I think a lot of politicans would rather go that route and then they don't have to talk about the real issues. People can change ideologies overnight.

    I think you may agree with one issue. "It's the economy, stupid" No insult intended.

    Partisan? Yes. Hack? That is your little name calling. I make no bones about my political leanings, it is posted right there under my avatar. I have no need to hide it, or mask it as something I am not. Where's yours? I am almost confident that you would attempt to list yours as centrist, or moderate, but we know don't we?

    In any case, I was venting, and I could really care less, but it seems to bug you, so thanks for the entertainment. I will rest comfortably knowing that your tell is exposed.
