• Wow, CG23sailor you went line by line, trying to completely discredit everything I wrote as either liberal or lefty. That's okay, because it's expected because I labeled everything right wing.

    1. In the first statement, I was trying make a point that the un-American angle might have more relevance than the racial, because so far Barack Obama has not been running as a black candidate e.g. Iowa and New Hampshire votes. Not trying to obscure just trying to point out that I've heard racist statements on both sides, all my life but un-American statements are rare. Peggy Noonan (Wall Street columnist) described Trinity United’s congregation has being rather passive, while the Jeremiah Wright was into his anti-American rants. This is just another conservative’s viewpoint.

    2. The statements I was pointing out were made by a couple posters who have a reputation for making bigoted remarks, and they are making the well use of the time right now to exploit the race issue on this particular thread. To say all 8000 members of that particular church are bigots is just not true. That church is on the south side of Chicago, so I don't think either of us can speak with any authority.

    3. I think as long as we have race baiters like Rush Limbaugh, Bill OReilly, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage to counter the Al Sharptons, Louis Farrakhan, and Jeremiah Wright; racism will always be kept in the spotlight. I speak from experience. I heard the parody of "Barack, the Magic Negro" to the tune Puff the Magic Dragon on the Rush Limbaugh show. Hannity gives the Black Panthers a venue. This goes on, day after day after day. I see two evils in this issue. You only seem to see one.

    4. The McCain citizen issue was brought up by the Bush campaign in the year 2000. Democrats thought that was stupid back then, and the news media made very little of it this year. The New York Times had a great lobbyist storyline, but for some reason, they try to headline it as a sex story. That's really hard to prove, if both sides deny it. They suppressed the story In January ,when it would have mattered to Mitt Romney, but were forced to go with it when another news outlet was fixing to beat them to the punch. The New York Times endorsed John McCain. It's a known fact that John McCain is a media darling, and his press is usually favorable.

    5. I'm sorry, but Fox news is the right arm of the RNC. That's the reason the Democrats do not debate on that network and the reason Barack will not go that network. You perceive a liberal bias, but you fail to see the Fox bias.

    6. The GD statement may have some relevance, not denying that, but will it last. Pennsylvania and North Carolina will be a good gauge. In 1992 the GOP tried to use the draft issue against Bill Clinton, but in the end, it was about the economy. I think we'll have a repeat of that. An example of that will be the debates. Barack Obama will denounce and reject the controversial statements of his pastor for 20 years, then go on ,to eloquently give his viewpoints on how to fix the economy, Iraq and the health care issue. I don't think John McCain will be able to count that.

    Liberals and Democrats did not divide the nation. Hate radio rhetoric, pulled the Hispanic voters into the camp of the Democrats. Again, I heard the hate rhetoric on illegal immigration whether it was Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Reagan or Sean Hannity. Polls verify this. At the end of this campaign Barack Obama will receive more Democratic votes than any previous candidate. Not a cute trick, because for years 90% of black voters were Democrats and a 40% of Hispanic voters were Democrats. The majority of women voters are Democrats, because of the right to choose. These are demographics not racial statements.

    A look at the canidates rallies will verify the demographics I have posted.

  • THERE IS NO LIBERAL MEDIA.   For Buddha sake--these are large corporations run by FAT CATS.  Don't believe everything you have been indoctrinated with.  Jeesh........ Just cause Rush and Hannity and Bill O'Liely tell you this tripe, don't make it so. 
    Discriminated against?  Not since my shoulder length hair fell out.

  • Just a quick question before I get back to my BBQ pit.  Has anyone on this blog been racially discriminated against?

  • Wright not on the ticket, HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Haven't the Rep been trying to tell the Progressive Libs that Bush is not running on the ticket? Doesn't make any difference to the Prog. Oh,.. that's right, it only matters if the Prog Libs think so. Or it is out of the mouth of the drooler Matthews or Keith Oralmann, the loosers of loosing PMSNBC.

    This race is getting funnier by the minute watching the Progressive Liberals destroy themselves. ROFLMAO!!

  • BAAAAAABAAAAAAABAAAAAAABAAAAAAABAAAAAAABAAAAAAA............hope Obama doesn't turn out to be a wolf in  sheeps clothing.  For all our sakes.  You discount racial tensions between blacks & hispanics.....don't count on all hispanics following suit.  You may be happy with your choices but no one died & made you the speaker for all.  You keep repeating that though, if it makes ya feel better.

  • The DNC would not decide that ,as I made it clear the people will e.g. delegates and popular vote.
    Superdelagates will not override that or they will have millions of new voters stay home ;rather than be disenfranchised.
    Pennsylvania is a working class state ,and the voters will decide if that issue or loss of jobs ,the war,and health care is of more importance,,,,Guilt by association will not linger throughout the campaign...Obama supporters are not  fragile.
    I have said that his poll numbers have dropped ,but so has McCain and Clintons...No one has gone unscathed wire to wire.
    Bill Richardson will bring the Hispanic vote Hillary had in Texas,New Mexico,California,Arizona,and Nevada. so ,some losses will be regained.....White voters are not the only ones voting in the general, so it will never be a matter of sheep. It will be as always Democrat v Republican...I love our chances.

  • You assume the normal everyday working class Dems have no issue with Obamas association with a man like Mr. Wright & if the DNC said he was their choice all Dems, regardless of their personal feelings, will fall in line.  Now who are the sheep?
