    Your personal opinion of Pete fails to obscure the fact that he has accurately described the Repub reality.

    Re: Black GOP candidate slams Obama for exploiting race

    I find it a little humorous, though. Because everyone chooses their political party - you can't force people to join. So if the Republican party si mostly white it's because almost all the black people ARE DEMOCRATS! Don't tell me that race-tensions play *no part* in people's decisions to identify with their friends more than their beliefs.

    It's also humorous that when the Democratic party pursues and boosts their black members/leaders as part of some type of 'urban outreach' or 'get out the vote' movement - that's purely *ok* and *race* couldn't possibly be a negative factor. . . its just great.
    But the moment Republicans do it - it's considered overtly negative and profoundly racist even though BOTH parties do the same thing.

    Racism is perfectly acceptable in the Democrat party, in fact, it's tauted as a badge of honor or completely looked over - no one can't pretend that race doesn't play a factor into WHY all the black people are *in* the Democratic Party. Hell - if you use to be in the KKK it's fine and forgivable as long as you want to be a DEMOCRAT.

    I think people underestimate the low nature of politicians - they don't give a **** - they'll do whatever it takes to get elected.
    If you don't believe me - just ask Clinton.

The reports I have read is, that there were under a handful of black delegates out of the 168+ people there, and they happen to choose a black candidate for the first time just after loosing the presidency to a black man .... yea right....
    So, based on the low number of black Republicans, that's proof positive that those black party members are just niggers who don't know any better? You're a foreigner, dude. How can you possibly expect to be taken seriously on this subject?

    Re: Black GOP candidate slams Obama for exploiting race

    let's see what this republican house negro is about:
    The case stems from an incident August 20 at a military base in Taji, just north of Baghdad, when West was interrogating an Iraqi policeman, who was believed to have information about a plot to assassinate West with an ambush on a U.S. convoy.

    In testimony at an Article 32 hearing -- the military's version of a grand jury or preliminary hearing -- West said the policeman, Yahya Jhrodi Hamoody, was not cooperating with interrogators, so he watched four of his soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion beat the detainee on the head and body.
    West said he also threatened to kill Hamoody. Military prosecutors say West followed up on that threat by taking the suspect outside, put him on the ground near a weapons clearing barrel and fired his 9 mm pistol into the barrel.

    Apparently not knowing where West's gun was aimed, Hamoody cracked and gave information about the planned ambush on West's convoy, thwarting the attack.

    West said there were no further ambushes on U.S. forces in Taji until he was relieved of his leadership post on October 4.

    "I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers," West testified to a military courtroom of observers and some teary-eyed troops formerly under his command.

    Asked if he would have act differently if under similar circumstances again, West testified, "If it's about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can."

    Puckett argued that because West is always accompanied by U.S. troops that he acted to save American lives.

    But while West's supporters call him a hero, military prosecutors said his actions amounted to torture and violated articles 128 and 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

    Prosecutor Capt. Magdalena Pezytulska said West should be tried for assault and for communicating a threat. "This is a case about a man who lost his temper," she argued. "There are consequences for [West's] actions."

    When West testified that he had "no malice toward Hamoody" and that he "just wanted information," Pezytulska presented a document of West's typed statement following the August incident. She asked him to read his own written words to the court: "In my anger, I couldn't remember how many shots were fired."

    "I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers,"
    A man that puts the welfare of his soldiers ahead if his own, even facing prosecution for his actions? That's a leader.

    He's the most devout racist this side of Reverend Wright, his esteemed mentor, and everybody in the U.S. now sees it plain as day.

    Can you stop using the term nigger and negro, please.
    I'm not sure how you're using it - sarcastically or as satire - but can you put a lid on it?

    No proof?

    Who said that, "white man's greed, runs a world in need"? Was that Obama, or the tooth fairy?

    Face it. Obama don't like white folks.

    Well you know "the man" has been down on him real hard, it has been difficult for Obama to accomplish anything or get anywhere in life, ya know.
