I try to not let political stuff seriously anger me too much, but that infuriates me.

Yes, having achieved it, he wants to kill it for the rest of us.

I thought he was a Muslim?

He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced.
Like George Bush and Mitt Romney?

He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement.
Whaaaa happened to San Francisco??

Rush Limbaugh? Never heard of him. Sounds like a crank.

God, Rush, just shut up already.

Yeah, anyone reading Obama's quote in its proper context knows full well what he meant, and whom he was referring to (i.e., he wasn't insulting your average small business owners and people who work hard at businesses everyday).

Sheesh, people.

I have absolutely no issue with what Obama said or how he chose to phrase it. It is shameful that a sentence or two ripped out of context is being used to attack him that way, and it's ridiculous that he has to be that careful about his phrasing. There is no substantive or stylistic difference in what he and Warren said. The only difference is she didn't say the exact words "You didn't build that."

Not that I don't believe you, but it would be interesting to read that.

Yep. I've heard that since the 90's.

I totally believe it.

Cynical capitalism.

Oh that's great! I wonder how many conservatives are aware of those two being friends. Not too many obviously!

What difference does it make if it's an act or not? Vile is vile.
Oh but wait I keep forgetting, the far right wants us to believe black is white, up is down and hate is ok if there is black guy in the white house.

Yep, you nailed it. The only reason I dislike President Obama's spending, overstepping of executive powers, growth of government, and petty politicking is because he's a black man. I wondered when someone would figure this out. Good job.

You know what I wonder? Why those on the right didn't dislike Bush's spending, overstepping executive powers, growth of government and petty politicking?

And why don't you dislike Romney's? Well he hasn't had a chance to overstep federal executive powers, but everything else he's proven, so give him time, right?

Here's what I don't get. The formation of the Tea Party and the hatred towards Obama started well before he even enacted anything. Why is that? How come the first Tea Party rally was being held on Tax day of Obama's first year? Why did they wait to protests Bush's policies after he got out of office, but why were they choosing to make their hateful signs about Obama instead of Bush?

I think if you were being honest with yourself you know the answers. Maybe not you, but a good portion of the right are hating not based on policy. Even Glenn Beck said himself during the primaries that if the right chose to rally behind Romney he had to wonder if it was based on race this whole time(of course he's chosen to ignore that statement now ).

Seriously. Although I'd say doing it for money, knowing that most people do not get it's a schtick, and supposed to be (apparently) "entertainment," makes it even more vile.
