    I think it's a great story.

    Out of all the things liberals/progressives do that the think all should tolerate, it's good I think to periodically do something they don't like.

    I'll bet most these same people who disapprove and complain about such a story approve of disrespecting Bush, Reagan, etc.

    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    They disrespected his library. Not the White house... Outhouses all across America have been disrespected I think.

    I too have been disillusioned with the GOP but not because of things like this. It hasn't driven me into the arms of the Democrats though. That would be like eating dog poop off your front lawn because you didn't like what your wife made for dinner.

    [QUOTE=Lord of Planar;1063498776]Absulutely.

    Just ask any liberal/progressive.

    I am a racist because I don't like Obama's politics.

    I will be a sexist when I start opposing Hillary's politics.[/QUOT

    None of that makes you a racist in and of itself. You know better, and please stop trivializing the racism that he has faced: he's not really one of us, he's a Muslim, he wasn't born here, the racist cartoons, etc. are racist and this float certainly has racial undertones - BUT as I said, who gives a ^&%$ what the Governor of Nebraska thinks let alone some bigots in Nebraska who have nothing better to do than this %^&* and picking and eating their snots all day ...

    Not only is it not racist-its highly appropriate for the what America has determined the worst president since WW2.

    That might carry more weight if numerous news organizations and the state Democratic Party weren't calling it one of the "worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen."

    here is the thing......much of the disrespect that has been shown this President seems to have an undertone of Racism...real or imagined. Even at the height of dislike for past Presidents people didn't shout out in State of the Union addresses, question his patriotism or even his parentage, etc. A history of powerful black men confronting subtle racism is well known so I can understand if some people think that racism helped motivate this horrible display. But I don't see it as such and I am guess most people don't. Was it stupid terrible and cowardly? Yes. Racist... meh.......
