    You brought it up, maybe you should start another thread on Obama's liberal agenda and stick to the topic here whether the float was racist or not.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    That which was covered by the Biased Lame Stream Media (to the point of ad nauseam) sure made them look that way.

    If you take a slightly closer look, and you'll see lots of house passed bipartisan legislation on jobs and many other important issues, lying in wait in Dingy Harry's desk. Party of No? Yeah, that'd be Dingy Harry's desk.

    It take 2 parties to be uncompromising, and the BLSM is only telling you about one of them.

    Racist? No.

    Inappropriate for a 4th of July parade? Most definitely.

    Unfortunately, Romney wasn't planning on unintelligent people hearing his words during a private meeting with supporters.

    As I am sure has been explained a thousand times, he was only rightfully trying to insult those people who are Obamabots and wouldn't change their vote under any circumstances. Kind of a why waste resources comment.

    Not quite as damning as Obama's "cling to bibles and guns" insult he made during the campaign in '08.

    Senator Dianne Feinstein has been very vocal in her criticism of Obama.

    - getting us out of the Great Recession
    - getting us out of Iraq
    - getting us out (eventually) of Afghanistan
    - getting Qaddafi out of power without America having to invade
    - getting Putin to back off what he tried to do in the eastern Ukraine
    - keeping America out of Syria since the rebels seemed to be every bit as bad as Assad (and he was right)
    - gave America 52 straight months of private-sector job growth (a record)
    - the DJIA has more than doubled on his watch
    - the deficit has been cut by more than 50%
    - government has grown less than under any president since Eisenhower
    - deportations of illegal aliens are at a record high
    - and - oh yeah - he got bin Laden, too.

    How DARE he claim that he's done anything right at all! He's only destroying America, don'tcha see?

    TB, all you really need to know about the attitude of the Right should have been made plain to you by the cheers and celebration of the Right when Obama wasn't able to get the Olympics to be held here. The Right has wanted him to fail from day one. It never made a bit of difference to them if what he wanted was the right thing for America - they simply wanted him to be a complete and utter failure, and they would do their utmost to make sure of it.

    See, that's the problem, guy. You are an educated individual, and as such you see what I do - you know very well why it's racist. It was built by those who knew that the black community would see that as a racist attack, but they built it anyway. That makes it racist.

    But you want to pretend that it's not racist. And you would be RIGHT if you were showing the picture of that float to anyone who had no clue about American race relations and the role racism has played in American history. Problem is, you're NOT showing the picture to those who are ignorant of American race relations or the role racism has played in our history.

    To put it another way, if you went to, say, Nepal, and called the locals n***ers to their faces, they probably wouldn't blink an eye - they would not understand the history of or the offense presented by that word...but if you say that word here, those hearing it would receive a whole different meaning.

    Problem is, you KNOW all this - you KNOW that the photo is in and of itself NOT racist to those who don't have a clue about American race relations, and you KNOW that the float would obviously be seen as racist by most Americans. You can pretend otherwise all you want...but most people see right through your claims...including those who agree with you, who think that you and they are the only ones who understand what the dog whistle's actually saying.
    Well said Glen. This nonsense of promoting racism while pretending it isn't is a tired old game racists have been playing for decades.
    Feigned ignorance and very real ignorance team up to produce this exact kind of post.
