    It's funny cuz its true.
    no, i'll find you the link. another great sc politician. and really, shouldn't our sensibilities preclude references to gorillas when a black man is our president?

    they did not call him a liar during a presidential address.

    Perhaps it was because no other President has stood on that podium and spewed so many lies to so many people before?

    My favorite lie; I will not sign any bill that adds one dime to the Deficit. I am perfectly willing to take bets on that one right now.

    The only thing more amusing will be how Democrats redefine what is meant by "adding to the deficit."

    Well they didn't really preclude references to chimps when a big eared white fella was our president so why is Obama now off limits to the same jokes most every politician is subject to?

    But you guys keep throwing out that race card...what you're going to accomplish is making an intelligenct and progressive political leader diminished to having his only legacy being that he was the first black man. That's gonna help you guys out a whole lot...LOL

    I hadn't seen that about Michelle. What I have consistently seen is this:

    I find interesting that every time this topic comes up, our friends on the right point out when those on the left did such things, and never manage to actually condemn those of their own who commit outrageous acts.
    The Democrats continue to lower the bar; why is it only pertinent if we condemn our own, when are you going to stand up and condemn your own for calling Bush a terrorist, a liar and going to the outrageous extent of claiming he knew the 9-11 attack was coming and did nothing.

    When will you condemn the House judiciary committee when it conducted a kangaroo hearing claiming Bush was responsible for the deaths of 4,000 American Troops by lying us into a war of choice and should be impeached for it.

    I am amused when Liberals and Democrats think that condemnation is a ONE WAY street here.

    Carry on; I find the patent hypocrisy of Democrats quite telling and amusing.

    jokes aren't off limits, racial jokes should be off limits. but that's just me, and millions of other civilized people.
