    As long as we can call his predecessor the "war for profit president", we can call Obusha the "food stamp president". That way, everyone is telling the truth.

    Which is worse? Only you can decide.

    Personally I do not think it is racist.

    It is not accurate to reference him as the Food Stamp POTUS anymore than any other POTUS since the program was created.

    About the same number of people joined the program during the Bush and Obama administrations. In 2008 under Bush when the economic went into a downward spiral more people became eligible.

    Why do people pay so much attention to GE's spokespeople?

    OK, we know GE is for the Democrats because GE makes the vast majority of it's revenue from government contracts and the Dems are the big spenders.

    So of course they will make specious claims against Republicans like claiming they are racist and other such ridiculous bull****.

    What gets me is that so many people will watch MSNBC without understanding that it is GE's propaganda outlet. It's like they don't even know they are watching a commercial.

    It's not racist.

    I agree with specklebang - we need to look at facts and call it how is.

    Causation aside, if the economy, nay, the country, were in a better position (instead of massive unemployment) I don't think anyone would be calling our President the "Food Stamp President." We're in a crappy situation so comparatively a lot more people are relying on food stamps - a program previously implemented. I doubt however that he simply is trying to trying to turn us into a socialiest society

    We've lost alot of respect for each other over the years, and for our President's, ignoring the fact that they can only do so much, as obvious by the name calling, but that is a topic for another time

    Government runs ads to get more people on food stamps - Jun. 25, 2012

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- More than one in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the federal government wants even more people to sign up for the safety net program.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been running radio ads for the past four months encouraging those eligible to enroll. The campaign is targeted at the elderly, working poor, the unemployed and Hispanics.

    The department is spending between $2.5 million and $3 million on paid spots, and free public service announcements are also airing. The campaign can be heard in California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and the New York metro area.

    Yes, it is racist. It's racist, because most uninformed people think it's black who use food stamp the most. Whether they are or not it makes no difference. It's the perception that counts.

    Whose perception? You assume that those "uninformed" people see blacks as a monolithic group... Have you ever stopped to think that most people see individuals and not groups?

    Since it is YOUR perception, it means by your reasoning the racist is you.
