For some people, who said something determies if they agree with it or not or if that statement is 'acceptable'.
This is one of those instances -- The Obama said what He said and it didnt create the slightest of ripples.
Had GWB or Limbaugh or any white conservative said it, there's be hell to pay.
No one with any degree of intellectual honesty could possibly argue otherwise.

More pure BS being spured by you.
Had GWB said this in exactly the same fashion as Obama did, speaking how the same can be applied to whites, I would've treated it exactly the same way.
WHO said it was needed for context for me, not because Obama saying it is better than Limbaugh, but because of the context regarding you. If a liberal said it then we damn well know that Goobieman is probably leaving comments out, misrepresenting the context its used in, or attempting to keep it hidden because he's laying a trap. If its a conservative then, well, there probably isn't a thread about it made by Goobie. Additionally WHO said it allows for a better chance to find out the full context it was stated in. Finally, at times WHO said it can matter, but this wouldn't necessarily be one of those cases.
Yes, if someone JUSt said "African Americans are a mongrel people" without ANYTHING else, which is not what happened here, I would probably react a bit more curiously with Limbaugh saying it than Obama. Limbaugh has a history of saying controversial racial things, often ambiguous in meaning, in a hope to stir up controversy and pander both to some of the more unpleasent segment of his base while simultaneously creating publicity by the media getting in a tizzy over it and then "explaining" himself. Obama does not have this history. As such, if that was ALL that was said, yeah...I'd react differently to Limbaugh.
However that's not what this situation is, no matter how many times you try to dishonestly cache it as such by trying to ignore the full context of the situation you're obviously and admittedly referencing.
For you, who has stated this and numerous other dishonest threads completely devoid of intellectual honesty in their creation and their execution, to attempt to suggest that anyone who has the audacity to disagree with you lacks it is laughable. Your point is not infallable, not even sound, and the ground on which you make such ludicrous and absurd decrees is shaking so badly it'd register on the richter scale.

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Context is extremely important. I've often referred to my mixed background as "Heinz 57" or "mutt." I'm german, English, Dutch, and Seminole. My kids are all of that, plus half Filipino.
Most AMERICANS are mongrels, in the context in which Obama said it. Your posts are ridiculous.
Asking for people's opinion in a poll is nothing at all like trying to determine the soundness of a position based on how many people like it.
That is, asking of you think 2+2=4 isn't the same thing as arguing that since most people believe 2+2=5 then 2+2=5.
