    Not illegal, though.
    I don't believe Jeremiah Wright is racist.

    To prevent violence and bloodshed (or whatever got my initial yes vote).

    As with any poll it is often how he question is presented that counts.

    Is there a transcript of what he said? I answered no.

    Curious, too. President Obama hung around with terrorists. Still became president. So someone spoke to a group over a decade ago - some people don't like the group - so he should resign? That's nonsense. Pure partisanship hypocrisy.

    Hmm... Do you respect Greta's opinions on all matters or only on this one?

    I didn't say I respected her opinion on this, I merely posted what what she thought.

    My thoughts on the matter always come back to the same thing. If Republicans want to avoid looking like the party of old white guys then they should avoid talking to groups that hope the party is about old white guys. It is not about crime, it is not about freedoms. It comes down to perception of the party who as of recent does not handle well what that perception is.

    Playing devil;s advocate for a minute, but don't you think you actually should speak to and try and sell your ideas to whomever will listen?

    Funny you should mention that, Republicans do not want to be told they are doing it wrong. Hence how quickly the Growth and Opprotunity Plan was squashed by most of the right wing blow hards.
