    Study: Obama foes aren't race-driven

    Racism is not a factor driving conservative opposition to President Barack Obama...

    Not that this will stop the card from being slithered out from the bottom of the deck at every turn.

    This isn't really news. Anyone with a modicum of sense can see that the racism is on the left and being played for political gain. These people are tearing this country apart and they should be punished for it.

    Whether racism is or isn't, in all reality, a factor, how accurate could such a study really be?
    Most conscious racists won't admit they're racist in a survey.
    And many people are driven by subconscious racism.

    My god this entire racism thing is ridiculous!

    Anyone with a modicum of common sense would realize that there was, is and will be some in all walks of life that are racist.

    This 4th grade game of throwing racism back and forth in each others face is worse than the quiet undercurrent of racism itself.


    "you're racist"

    "nu-uh, Im not the racist you are"

    "no, you are"

    "im rubber you're glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you"

    give it a rest.

    And what sort of punishments do you suggest for these naughty liberals?

    Shunning of racists and race baiters, particularly in the political arena. Vote them out or impeach them. I'll send a letter to Pelosi today to take care of that. Oooops, she's one of them!

    I thought that was really interesting too ! I didn't post it when I read it tho, b/c when I mentioned this study on Thursday night (I'd read a preview of it on Thurs night) some conservatives in a tea party thread told me it was a POS study b/c it was put out by a Dem pollster

    It's offensive that there even *is* a study on this crap as though it had any credence in the first place.

    Ah yes, the old "you are a [fill in the blank], you just won't admit it to yourself" canard.

    Oddly, I use this approach in a modified fashion to label Obama supporters as lunatics. I modify the approach by allowing that most of them, deep down, actually suspect that they're deranged.
