    Check out the Poll Above, Hay. Racists were voting for Obama rather than against him.

    a racist platform and racist policies.
    HAH

    It is that exact lack of caring about including African Americans which indicts them. You claim that somehow, someway that shows they are not racist or they are above race. Baloney. They care a whole lot about race - as long as it is White.
    which is why Herman Cain is exploding in support, why Allen West is a hero of the Tea Party movement, why people like me think that Marco Rubio will (and should) be president one day....




    but this rather provides another piece of evidence for my theory that Democrats are often just projecting when they attack Republicans.

    Your party may care nothing about African Americans - but your party cares a great deal about race.
    evidence beyond hyberpole?

    Legitimate question, are you black...or just a guilt ridden white man?

    why does it always come down to race with you?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    He was just being a smartass, although that was pretty funny.

    You do realize that you don't get to judge anything or anyone?

    Race plays a factor in everything including your biases

    Not my problem if you don't understand that.

    Now...how did the "Hearts and Minds" thing work out for the South Vietnamese and the Kurds?

    Please ignore me until you grow the balls to answer that question coward

    you caught me. everyone knows that Harvard is only for rich white people, and that's how Obama made it.




    the actual harvard critique, as i understand it, isn't a racial commentary as it is a personal one. Obama was sold as Being So Smart And Wise, and one of the pieces of evidence was his going to Harvard. The intent wasn't to really talk about race as an issue, but argue (as i recall, i never really looked that into it) that Obama wasn't the Brilliant Constitutional Scholar And Philosopher King, but rather had benefited from some preferential policies.

    probably also worth noting that Rush Limbaugh spent about a week or so lambasting Daniels on his show - accusing him of not being aggressive enough, of not being hard core enough, hitting on him for this "truce" comment etc.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    A virtually all white political party in a nation which is soon to be only half white is not at all racist according to cpwill. Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

    I can see where you guys are coming from, but personally I think that even if he benefitted from such policies, the fact that he came out and performed well and graduated magna cum laude redeems him in my eyes.
