    I was going to say something about J-mac and then I realized I'm not in the basement.

    Since we have a black President, I was wondering how people felt about other black candidates.

    And yes, I DO vote on issues, always, not race, sex, or ethnicity.
    I don't think the premise of the thread is racist, simply irrelevent to whether or not the president is any good.

    NIce try, though.
    Just so I'm clear... if majority of the black voting population of this country voted for Barack Obama because he was black, that makes them racists? Did I get that right? I'm seeking to clarify...



    Oh and my choice... and the only real choice...

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Your Choice for a Black President

    Oh you people and your view on race mattering. Just because Republican women love to exploit the fact that they are women and they "know" how to read, write, and drive doesn't mean the same for Democrats and different kinds of people.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    This thread should be mocked into non-existence.
    How does the poll imply that voting should be done on the basis of race? The OP merely gave a list of black people and asked who we would vote for?

    You wish. Those places are pristine examples of moral and responsible behavior compared to Chicago.

    I picked other. Race is not important. Can hard to tell little Timmy and little Suzy that race doesn't matter if we give a rats ass about the color of the president's skin, the first black president or who would make a better first black president.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
