I think it's the timing of the gas prices, and the fact that they go up every day. Just when more people were feeling comfortable spending some discretionary money on clothes or travel or entertainment, etc.-now they're hit with that and everything goes back to when they couldn't spend that money even though gas was still cheap. It's a psychological blow in addition to hitting you in the wallet.

And of course it's not just gas-it's the food price increases and everything else that's going up as a result of the gas prices. If you can't take a trip this summer or even do small things-that's a definite mood killer. What do you have to look forward to other than being more broke?

Yes, it's very unfortunate. I have zero respect for him


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House struck back at Christian evangelical leader Franklin Graham on Monday for suggesting that President Barack Obama might not have been born in the United States.

Graham, the son of evangelical leader Billy Graham -- a long-time counselor to Republican and Democratic presidents -- said on ABC television that Obama "had some issues to deal with" in proving that he was born in Hawaii -- echoing claims from the so-called "birther" movement that have been debunked.

"I was born in a hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, and I know that my records are there. You can probably even go and find out what room my mother was in when I was born. I don't know why he can't produce that," Graham said in remarks broadcast on Sunday.

He also seemed to question Obama's religious convictions.

"Now, he has told me that he is a Christian. But the debate comes, what is a Christian?" Graham said of the president.

"For him, going to church means he's a Christian. For me, the definition of a Christian is whether we have given our life to Christ and are following him in faith and we have trusted him as our lord and savior."

The White House, which has had to deny false claims repeatedly that Obama was not born in the United States, dismissed Graham's comments.

"I think it's unfortunate that a religious leader would choose Easter Sunday to make preposterous charges," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.

I love how religion and this birther issue are just covering up the fact that people don't like having a fucking black person for president.

There is nothing else to it.

Yes Liberals got upset at the war mongering of Bush, and said hateful things, and even did some comparable things (using Nazi symbolism). But if we're going to compare crazy, nothing compares to what Obama has gone through.

He's had his birth questioned. His policital idealogy. His religion. Everything. No one has doubted McCain is an American Citizen.....so what's the difference? Fucking racists.

I really hope the reason for all of this commotion....is the last hurrumph of a dying breed of American racism and bigotry.

I consider myself a conservative, but all this ridiculousness about Obama's birth certificate makes me embarrassed to be a republican. Seriously, what are they even basing this off of?

Thank you.

Surely there are policy differences that the 2012 candidates could be addressing.
Does the birther push say more about the base than the candidates? Probably, yes.

i will add that this guy isn't a Tea Party leader, he isn't going on TV acting as a pundit for the Tea Party, he isn't a spokesman, he isn't anyone of any actual importance.

however, it's very important to continue to point out that the Tea Party hits on every single racist, populist, sexist, homophobic, white identity panic button that the GOP has played since at least the 1990s, and when you do that, the crazies are going to come out of the woodwork and stand right alongside you. you can say you're not racist all you want, but clearly, you've provided a warm, safe space for someone to come and be a big racist and flex those white cultural panic muscles.

you can claim it's all about taxes and spending, but for many, many people, "tax and spend" means "tax the whites, spend on the blacks."

True, but he exemplifies a big portion of the Tea Party.

He exemplifies those that don't recognize bigotry unless it's aimed towards them, that long for the WASP society that exist in Leave it to Beaver reruns, that don't preach love but preach "god" and Amerika, those that fear their "status" may change.

Just like the Koch employee was reported to have said, "let's get the rednecks to the dirty work for us".

Telemprompter Inventor "Hub" Schlafly Dies; Device Changed Public Address in America
April 26, 2011

ABC's Z. Byron Wolf and Brian Canova report:

You’ve never heard of Hubert J. “Hub” Schlafly Jr., but if you’ve seen a major political speech in the past generation, you know his work. Schlafly invented the TelePrompTer and changed public address in America. He died April 20th in Connecticut.

President Barack Obama, is hailed by supporters as a gifted orator. But he has been lambasted by critics for his reliance on the teleprompter. In truth, every President since Dwight D. Eisenhower, excepting Nixon, has used one for major speeches in Congress.

Schlafly, a TV engineer, developed the device in the 1950’s to help soap opera actors remember their lines, according to the Washington Post.

When will some of you put your crayons back in the box?

I don't like President Obama's policies.

So that makes me a racists?


I didn't like President Bush.

Does that make me a racists?

Oh
I guess it doesn't with people who keep checking things
with crayons.

Not one person in here has ever stated that you're a racist if you don't like Obama's policies.

NOT ONE!

Why is it soooooo hard for you to address the actual topics? Surely you're informed enough to do so, right?

Drop the crayons talk, drop the s and be adult enough to engage, if not do not waste our time.
