    There's that childish sarcasm again.
    Show me where the opposition leader in either chamber ever said this or anything like it;

    “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president,” -Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
    The single most important thing we want to achieve... said during the biggest recession since the great depression.

    This is exactly the kind of childish debate tactic I am talking about.
    If you wish to defend their unprecedented obstruction ... fine ...do so...
    Denying what we all already know, or making the case that it is not unprecedented, gains you no traction it only makes you appear ... well, yeah ...childish.
    You posted a graph that said "projected" as in the future.

    What is reality?

    Is your name Chris...or are you just going to follow me around in this thread and keep it off topic?

    Mitch McConnell isn't the topic, unless he was the one who put that float in that parade.

    As for the latter, I lived by it. They do cling to their bibles, they love guns, and many are racist to the core.

    I saw it for myself. Whether you believe me or not, makes no difference.
    Gotcha. Opinion. Certainly establishes the Presidents belief about Pennsylvanians and Mid-Westerners.

    Are you under the impression that it is important that it was said out loud? Do you think this is something new for the opposition to think?

    The interviewer displayed profound stupidity and un-professionalism.
    Jackson astounded as he was, had some fun at the interviewers expense...and rightly so.
    The term " they all look alike" comes immediately to everyone's mind when viewing this vid.
    Was the interviewer being racist?
    Stupid ... most definitely ...racist ? probably not.

    Given the nature and depth of the problems the nation faced at that time...Yes, I honestly believe that was something that took on a new level for a leader of the opposition to think... said out-loud it was nothing short of astonishing.

    I got those two actors confused for years, though I knew the difference and had watched much of their roles. It wasn't out of racism or even similar physical traits, it was some kind of mental error. And I've seen Fishburne interviewed, saying it's an ongoing joke between them it happens so often. I don't get them mixed up anymore or with other actors, like Clarence Williams III or Denzel Washington.

    I think the clip is funny as hell but not overtly racist.

    Perhaps you didn't see the other video where he said Repubs should sit in the back of the bus? That's more than one word, Buck, but yes, I'm very tolerant about most gaffes, having made my share. But honestly, how would you have felt if Bush had said that Democrats were the enemy? Wouldn't you have been a bit insulted?
