    Why would you want to use that word in the first place? As a black man I hate the word and I try to make sure my kids don't use it. However, to clarify, when alot of blacks use the word, they identify everyone (white, black, mexican) with the word. For example "that Nigga George Bush is a idiot" has been said a thousand times in barbershops I went to. The reason it is a taboo for whites to use it is because they will only reference blacks as Niggas. I just can't see anyone white using the N word towards another race outside of black race. So that is why it is seen as racist when white people use it.

    But again, why would you want to use that word?

    Have you never heard anyone say they would never vote for someone because he is _________________? Insert your own derogatory term in the blank, please. Surely you are familiar with most of them, being a poster from WAY back....
    OK...that's great. I don't disagree with any of that.

    Now do me a favor and relate that issue to THIS thread.

    Personally, I don't use the word, but in my opinion "nigger" is a description of character, not of color. I have met many a cracker that could justifiably be called "nigger"
    However, given the history behind the usage of the term, I think it would be in the best interest of all parties in NO ONE used it.

    Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they're not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That's not in my prepared remarks, but it's true
    Does anyone actually believe the bolded?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Besides, that's simply more deflection. Don't want to answer? Call it "talking points."




    According to the White House, it was supposed to be in full swing this summer. Which leads to:



    But he did promise a "Recovery Summer."

    And according to you, that puts him in the ranks of the ignorant.

    But no, you deflect criticism on those grounds thusly:



    So yeah, according to you, he can do no wrong, even when by your own terms, he's being "ignorant."




    No idea what or who you're referring to, but it's entirely irrelevant. That someone else isn't POTUS.
    good lord, we are recovering.

How many more years do you want to give them?

    Nice response. now...seriously? is your ideology REALLy so important to you that you endorse 6 more years of spending so much money that they didnt even bother presenting a budget? so...at the current rate of spending and since the answer to EVERY problem for a democrat is raise taxes and spend money...then we can expect in that next 6 years another 12 trillion in debt, no new jobs...and...what precisely?

    Sad thing is there are enough people dependent on mommy guv and/or committed to an ideology...that I think you are likely to get your wish.

    based on what evidence, other than a few speeches, do you get the sense that we are 'recovering'? Thats like saying your personal checkbook is $1000 in the hole, you dont make enough to pay your house payments, but you just took out a third mortgage to cover you for the next three months, so you are doing better.
