    Often, not always, they are. The reasonable people are only disappointed.

    It was an honest question, read into it what you will. As for falling on it's face so far the poll is 25 to 10 in favor of Obama made things worse so most agree with me, you are truly delusional.

    So if you were black and hated Bush were you racist?

    It was a pretty good question, of the kind that doesn't get asked often enough. And some of us will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington AND the ballot protection initiatives that defend the value of the March's gains.

    I said start with. You're just desperate to pretend there isn't a point being made. Typical.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Obama at NY Town Hall: ‘I’m a Testament’ To Racial Progress.....



    President Obama touched on the issue of race today at a town hall meeting in New York at Binghamton University. Responding to a question about educational opportunities for minorities, Obama acknowledged the progress America has made in race since Martin Luther King, Jr.'s momentous 'I Have a Dream' speech on August 28, 1963.


    "Obviously we've made enormous strides -- I'm a testament to it, you're a testament to it, the diversity of this room and the students who are here is a testimony to it."

    Yet, the president insisted,

    "Institutional barriers for success for some groups still exist.".....snip~

    Obama at NY Town Hall:


    Funny.....he was never talking about it much when he was round here. Guess he didn't have the pizsazz to over-shadow Jesse back then.....huh?

    I moved the question on to include the GOP because I saw this as a thinly disguised attempt to make Obama look bad.

    I doubt you've read a single press release or transcript of his on the issue.
