    I fail to see how it can be possible to answer a question phrased in a vacuum.

    Yes, and it should be pretty obvious given the source of the comments which were the impetus for this thread.

    Not a surprise.

If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party."
    Which specific word in this example was used in its correct context, but for some reason Obama "feaked out" over it?

    I fail to see how you cannot answer the question, exactly as posed.

    I kind of know what he meant, but he did use a bad choice of words. I also agree that if a white politician had said that their would be a whole lot of rage coming from my side over this, and for that I would be ashamed that people are to stupid to actually look up a word before they judge something.

    Oh look, we have more dishonesty. I made it clear in this thread that it is the context that matters. Without knowing context, we cannot properly judge a statement.

    Except in this case, as -none- of that matters.

    Who said it doesnt matter. Disagree? Why?
    Why it was said doesnt matter. Disagree? Why?
    Where it was said doesn't matter Disagree? Why?
    That anyone said it at all -- doesn't matter.

    Thus, context doesnt matter.

    All -you- want to do here is -avoid- the question.
