    I love that American has tried to emphasized the point that this is cronyism because they are both black and may (I use that word very carefully in this case) have known each other 30 years go. Talk about a leap of mother****ing faith.

    That's what black people do, according to the tea party. They have secret handshakes.

    Did you know that I remember every black person that I saw on a plane with me when I flew to France 3 years ago?

    I think this thread probably falls under the "Affirmative Action President" meme the rightwingers love trotting out. There's a whole rightwing industry spewing out this stuff, about how Obama and of course Mrs. Obama only got anywhere in life because of affirmative action, without which they would be working in a fast food restaurant (because they're black, you know and black people never excel on their own merit according to the tea party). The OP is extending the talking point to black acquaintances of Mrs Obama from 30 years back. Here's how the "Affirmative Action President" meme works.

    It is a strategy that conservatives learned from the Clinton years. Throw **** against the wall, hope it sticks. When doesn't stick, just use it the next time as part of a list of all the scandals the administration has been part of. Rinse, repeat, and pretty soon every one (with every one being all the conservatives who want to believe) starts believing that the administration is scandal ridden. It is creating a narrative. Facts do not need to apply. You can see it in posts here as people keep bringing in other "scandals" and use that as why this is believable.

    There is a reason why the biggest demographic that republicans are actually gaining in is high school and less educated white people. Most other people actually can see through this kind of thing, and most other demographics republicans are losing ground in.

    Good job linking to a site that makes Beck and Limbaugh look understated and fact based. It is **** like that that people use against the rest of us. Leave the stupid "blogosphere" "tell us what to think" type links at home, you will fare better.

    This is the list of "scandals" brought up so far...

    Obama's great uncle.
    Benghazi.
    NSA.
    IRS.
    The website.

    They're trying DESPERATELY to try to get something to stick. It's really a good thing nothing is. Few people would argue Obama has been a 'great' president, but he hasn't been the monster Tea Party Savages are hoping he is. If anything, he's kept most of the policies of his predecessors in place. He's Bush lite with more liberal qualities.

    They brought up Solyandra and LightSquared too. This kind of thing makes them look really desperate. They don't have anything that has worked yet, and fact checking keeps debunking all the talking points they want to use about ACA, but by god, something has to stick.

    I'm sure the next "scandal" will be the one that gets Obama impeached though.

    Remember, Clinton was impeached for obstruction of justice, so surely he must have been guilty...
