If you're going to attempt to use 15 quotes, or even a hundred, to categorize almost 7 years of "liberal" refutation of your side's often asinine claims as "rawr racism!", you're doing it very wrong.

    Also, if you're going to crib off a website, at least have the common decency to link to it and give the guy some hits on his website, ya ****in plaigiarist.

    You're right...it's just YOUR OPINION. ya ****in denialist.

    So how does one show their disapproval of the man while respecting the office?

    Re: Is this Racist?

    The goal posts continue to be moved. When there is no cause to fight for anymore, the race baiters move the goalposts to include more things to fight against. It is now racist to even make any type of disparaging remarks about a person who happens to be black. However, this standard does not apply evenly across the board. You can criticized and publically mock Bush and not be called a racist. Hell, if that were the case they would have to get rid of some of the funniest Saturday night live skits.

    The equal rights movement is tied closely to the feminist movement. Both continue to move the goalposts, and both have outgrown their use. Leaders in both camps are struggling to stay employed so they must create new injustices to keep that money rolling in.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Last time I looked, patriots had freedom of speech.

    Who here is calling this "racist"?

    (I use racist in quotes because nobody seems to know what it means anymore)
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    There's plenty of ways. You can protest his policies, you can protest his actions without having to resort to such juvenille actions like the float. That float during a 4th of July parade is just disrespctful IMO.

    You can thank liberals for the fact that nobody knows what it means anymore.

    Right on cue, "it's all liberals fault." I'm sure we can also thank "liberals" for kidnapping the Lindbergh baby and for you not winning at Scrabble last week.
