    I can't believe I had to sit here and listen to Pat Buchanan to figure out what you are referring to?

    Personally I avoid talking heads if I'm looking for in-depth knowledge about political issues. The link I posted earlier has a lot of links on the sidebar that I'm sure will take you to some sites that will show you that they do exist. A site titled National Black Republican Association is a good start .IMO. The whole front page is full of crap they are spouting off. Here is an example:

    Is Obama a racist? by Frances Rice makes the case that President Obama harbors feelings of antagonism and superiority toward white people.
    They're obviously endorsing Frances Rice who claims Obama is the racist .

    You really cannot come with a single reason people might oppose the administrations policies other than race?
    Thank you

    If something like that happens completely unexpectedly, some of his colleagues, would turn around in surprise and look, They all stared knowingly ahead. Was this whole thing planned disrespect?

    That is an interesting observation, wind. Hmmmmm

    First of all, here is a video of Obama's speech in context with the outburst and without some biased media making comments about it.
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxHKSHvMRWE"]YouTube - You lie! to President Obama. Rep. Joe Wilson R-(SC)[/ame]
    Can somebody say "blown up issue"?

    There are 41 African Americans in the entire Congress. Most are Democrats. You are surprised that you can't find one in the picture why?

    So disrespecting someone=racism? When people called Bush and idiot were they racist? Disrespecting someone is just that...disrespecting someone.

    And Obama just called a good portion of Republicans liars in that speech. Does that make him racist? I'm surprised more Republicans weren't giving retorts in that speech. It was a personal attack against them. The media doesn't like when people stand up to liberals.

    I am so sick and tired of the left using the race card. I can't stand it.
    "Obama is a socialist"
    Oh their racist.
    "Obama is a liar"
    Oh their racist.
    "No on healthcare"
    Oh my god! How racist!

    It infuriates me. People are just completely dismissing the opposing positions as nothing but racism, and ignoring the arguments. I want to scream my head off I get so upset. This "racist" accusation strategy the Democrats are using is going to hurt them, especially with independents. They will lose seats.

    I regard anyone who claims a good amount of opposition to Obama is about his race as an arrogant, pathetic, ignorant, idiotic, close-minded fool.

    Are there racists out there? Of course, white racists, black racists, racists of all colors. But the idea that racism is the main motive for opposition against Obama is absurd. PERIOD.

    RealClearPolitics - Does He Lie?

    RealClearPolitics - Articles - A Living Lie

    RealClearPolitics - Articles - Obama Offers a Beautifully Packaged Lie

    Reading this, and reading on what Joe Wilson said - I honestly cannot help myself.

    Obama, "you lie!"

    Wholly humongous slippery sloping grand generalizations batman!

    I don't see anyone in that video calling these people at the rallies "uncle toms" or any liberals "rip(ping) them apart".
    There are plenty who are from the left who actually respect African Americans supporting the "other side." Just because they have opposing viewpoints doesn't mean they are all being marked for blasphemy by EVERYONE on the left or fellow minority Americans.

    That's just a fictitious generalization just like 100 people are holding up racist poster boards at tea parties makes one million of them racist.
    Just like 100 people at a rally threatening Bush's life makes every participant a troop hating anarchist.
    Yes I am speaking from deep personal experience.
