    "Racial tensions won't get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they've got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot" if individuals do not see a stable fiscal future, Obama said.

    I think you should cut her some slack. That was a seriously funny retort.

    No, but it won't stop race-baiters from bringing this up.

    Re: Did obama just blame the economy on race

    "I want to make sure that all of us in Washington are investing as much time, as much energy, as much debate on how we grow the economy and grow the middle class as we've spent over the last two to three years arguing about how we reduce the deficits," he said, blasting what he called "a damaging framework in Washington."
    He wants to "grow" the middle class. He wants to increase the size of his voting base. He wants to grow the middle class by reducing high paying jobs and forcing people to take jobs below their skill sets bringing them from upper class down to middle class (He's the "Roads & Bridges" President). He wants businesses to change full time employees to part time through the "obamadoesn'tcare" health plan so he can make more citizens reliant on government. obama is pure socialist.
    With a name like Slice, what did you expect?
    "Honey Badger Don't Care!"
    I'm snarky. deal with it.

    Seems the only thing he has left to start is the march toward revolution.

    No, this is just a factual statement that acknowledges the demographics. And if the economy doesn't get better and if we continue our corporate capitalist route, this will exacerbate until such time that people realize that when they riot, they shouldn't be going after private business in their neighborhood, but rather government.

    Are you kidding me here?

    Two questions...

    1.) What is the alternative to what you term the "corporatist/capitalist route"...?

    2.) Obama is a corporatist himself, as long as it is a corporation he approves of, so what do you call it when government picks and chooses which corporations we should support?

    Obama is a corporatist himself. He's not moving to solve the problem, none of them are. Doesn't distract from the fact that the statement is true. He can say true things even if he has no intention of following through. When government picks and chooses which corporations we should support, that is corporate capitalism. It's the main capitalism pushed by the Republocrats.

    Ok, I suspect we are more in agreement, than disagreement at this point.

    2. This President is predicting violence if the economy doesn't improve, yet he wants to restrict your access to guns and ammunition.

    3. This President loves to pit those who are successful and acquire the fruits of their success against those who are less successful in life. He loves to portray those with success and wealth as being undeserving of that success and wealth and those who are less successful as being deserving of their share of the successful person's wealth. Is it any wonder that some may feel the President is condoning taking from the successful and wealthy, even if it takes violence?
    Nothing in this post remotely resembles reality.
