    True all what you said, but the buck still stops with Obama here. He didn't want to give her a chance to explain her side of the story, but chose to take the word of a race baiting scumbag over hers instead, the same scumbag who has also helped to disseminate "birther" lies about him.

    Shame on you, Mr. President. You are a ****ing idiot.

    Maybe thats why he so readily took Breitbarts word. Race baiting scumbags apparently know their own...

    I see. It's all spin, right? You might ask the white farmer about what happened.

    Of course, with your ilk, the word of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck counts for more than the people who were actually there.

    What the audience was clapping about was her Mrs. Sheddon's earlier comments concerning how some White individuals back in the 60's finally received justice under the law for their mistreatment of Blacks. Had nothing to do with her commentary of how she initially treated Mr. Spooner. But I digress...

    Everyone shares some blame here. As such, here's what I sent to the White House on this matter:

    "Dear Mr. President:

    I am writing in sponse to the firing of Mrs. Shirley Sherrod, the former Georgia state Director of Rural Development, in the wake of a vile attack on her person to paint her as a racist.

    Mr. President, I am ashamed of myself. I am ashamed because just as millions of Americans, I too jumped to conclusions and condemned this woman's actions before having access to the full unedited video that does more to hail this woman's endeavours to foster better race relations in this country than the edited video does to paint her as a racist. After reviewing the unedited video in its entirety, I humbly and respectfully request that you along with the Agriculture Secretary, Mr. Tom Vilsack, go before the American people and not only render a public apology to Mrs. Sheddon but also reinstate her to her previously held position within the Department of Agriculture.

    The travesty bestowed upon Mrs. Sheddon is a blame every American should share. We owe her an apology of the highest standards not just to foster race relations as she has worked tirelessly to do, but because it is the right thing to do."

    We're all to blame.

    Looks like an open and humble response. I hope it happens. I suspect the White House will blame their own stupidity on others and I highly doubt their response will be as sincere as yours.

    Hopefully a lot of good will come from this whole situation. Fox needs to do the right thing and apologize profusely, as does President Obama. We all know this stuff happens, but this lady was brave enough to tell it in a speech. Although Fox was guilty of misrepresenting the story, Obama really needs to do the right thing and apologize publically, rehire her, and maybe even promote her. This is what most of us would like to see. We need a happy ending.

    Yeah, they'll probably blame Bush.

    Who gives a **** what she said later? The clip was the most vile bit of racism this side of a KKK meeting. Flip it around, is she were a white woman talking about a black farmer, and that clip went out... you wouldn't be here defending her no matter HOW much she, the family or anyone came forward to give "the rest of her story".

    Faux Outrage Dan, but I don't expect anything less from someone so keen to be seen as a "good docile conservative, ever ready to be liked."
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
