    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.

    Considering she (allegedly) used cultural as well as racial identifiers, I'm not really convinced it's comparable. It shouldn't really be an issue either way.

    Of course. As noted though if someone else had (if she indeed did) complain using the kind of terms she did about another race there would be a major uproar.

    Funny though. We both can recognize the problems with some like Bill Daley but yet, Obama brings him to D.C.

    They are also representing a city that's 80% black.

    What difference does it make?

    The point is, had someone complained about too many black people in charge, the Libbos would go freakin' nuts over it.

    But, when a black person says it about white people, it's suddenly no biggy.

    Does it bother you at all that these quotes are completely unconfirmed? Or does it bug you at all that the author claims to know the inter thinkings of the President and his wife from sometimes over 10 years ago, without interviewing this person on this material? That's like me looking at your post and thinking "I bet his worst fear is a black man becoming President, and its happened, so his worst fears have been realized, I'm going to write a book about this."

    I also just got off the phone with a former White House staffer who asked to remain anonymous, and he said Michelle referred to the recent Osama killing as "tragic" and "regrettable." No lie trust me.
