    Re: Obama the n-word

    In person I haven't heard it. But it has been years since I have heard a white person refer to a black person by that word. I certainly have people in my extended family who use the term but not around me since going off on them at a family reunion. And I don't hang around people who use it.

    Not sure about Limbaugh saying that - we all know what a true patriot he is so I'm not sure he'd wish the economy to fail. All I know is at least one republican said his/her only goal was to make sure Obama was a one-term president (oops). I found this on Limbaugh, but it's not saying he wants the econ

    Though, I guess you could infer he wants the economy to fail by extension, since he wants Obama to fail on his economy policies.

    You have to admit though, it is in the interest of Rush Limbaugh's business model to tell his listeners he hopes Obama fails. When honestly that business model of telling a decreasing demographic to be increasingly angry at the actions of the opposition is really what Limbaugh needs.

    Why's that? Because of the subject? The discourse has been mostly civil so far.

    I think due to being more of a fact-based thread (you have or haven't), it could keep the thread on track without much trolling or baiting.

    A race thread? About Obama? And the n-word? Yeah, what could possibly go wrong?

    As long as people stay on topic (hint hint), I think it'll be just fine.

    It was an obvious mischaracterization of what Rush said. Why try to spin it? If Rush is evil incarnate, there shouldn't be any need to make up stuff about him that's not true.

    I didn't make up anything about Rush Limbaugh.

    Stay on topic, X Factor. It's not that hard.

    I'm not the one who manufactured a reason to invoke Rush Limbaugh. Go admonish that person.
