    He seems to have a bit of a problem with both parts of the Oath, unfortunately.

    Greetings, tres borachos.
    I'd say Reagan pandering to white racists in Mississippi was more "dividing" than anything Obama ever did, but whatever floats your boat.

    But they do! Just a couple months ago a couple local politicians were at Cinco de Mayo talking about this great immigration reform they were working on and then not too long after they were on tv advertising how tough they were on immigration and wouldn't vote for no amnesty. They can do it all and be everything to everyone!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    That was truly a sickening display of disrespect for the democratic process. That would have been like the GOP members of Congress hiding out in Canada when the time came to vote on Obamacare.

    Shameful.
    Oh, you mean like what happened with recess appointments?

    So you didn't have any problem Romney insulting 47%. Oh right, as long as it is the half that you don't care for

    By the way, please provide a link where Obama is calling half the people in this country his "enemies"

    Really? You can't think of something better to respond with than that? Perhaps you could start another thread and ask the question there.

    Romney isn't President. Why did you mention his name when quoting her post?

    By the way, according to the poll most of the people on this thread believe it's not racist.
    And most people on DP seem to be either conservative or libertarian. Ask the same question on redstate.com and you'd get solid support there. Ask the same question on, say, the Daily Kos...and you'll get slammed. Ask the same question on a black forum and you'll rhetorically get your ass handed to you.

    BTW, your poll did NOT ask if the float depicted in the photo was racist - your poll DID ask if the STORY was racist...and it was a news story. If you had asked if the float itself was racist - AND if we had an equal number of liberals and conservatives on this blog - and THEN if the poll showed that most thought it wasn't racist, do you know what that would mean?

    Nothing.

    Why? Because you're conducting a poll on the internet, and as such the sampling makes any such poll absolutely worthless.

    To be totally bipartisan, we could also mention the high-ranking Democrats who also feel the same way, judging from their recent criticism of his policies!
