Joe for America

America Needs a White Republican President

Print Friendly and PDF

Admit it. You want a white Republican president again.

Now before you start feeling like you’re a racist, understand you are not.

Wanting a white Republican president doesn’t make you racist, it just makes you American.

In the pre-black president era, criticizing the president was simply the American thing to do. An exercise of one’s First Amendment right. Criticism had nothing to do with color, because there had never been a black president, or at least one whom people recognized as black.

So to criticize the president meant that you didn’t like his policies.

The election of a recognized black president was not supposed to change anything. In fact, it was supposed to (1) ease any perceived racial tensions, and (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race. So America would be more free than ever to discuss the issues.

Not the case. And that is why having a white Republican president is best for the country.

Consider that nobody is ever accused of being racist for disagreeing with white presidents. Mexicans disagreed with most white Republican presidents over America’s immigration policy. Many deranged Mexicans believe we should open the country up to them, some saying that much of America belongs to Mexico anyway. They are not called racists.

Liberal blacks have disagreed with most Republican presidents since Eisenhower, yet these blacks are not considered racists. In fact, when blacks had sanity and disagreed with the policies of racist white Democrat presidents, nobody accused black people of being racists.

Fighting for one’s civil rights was not racist then, nor is it racist now. Blacks (and Republicans) were on the side of righteousness, when they disagreed with the racist policies of Andrew Johnson, and adopted by every Democrat president since.

Never has a black person been called racist, because they didn’t like one of the white presidents’ policies. Blacks were just exercising their First Amendment rights to speak freely. Blacks have disagreed with policy positions of about every Republican president in the modern era, including those who have helped them.

Take Reagan for example. Reagan ushered in a veritable Renaissance for blacks, as Fox News showcased.

And the Reagan record?

African-American columnist Joseph Perkins has studied the effects of Reaganomics on black America. He found that, after the Reagan tax cuts gained traction, African-American unemployment fell from 19.5 percent in 1983 to 11.4 percent in 1989. Black-owned businesses saw income rise from $12.4 billion in 1982 to $18.1 billion in 1987—an annual average growth rate of 7.9 percent. The black middle class expanded by one-third during the Reagan years, from 3.6 million to 4.8 million.

Real Politics reports Obama’s statistics as follows:

Median family income for black Americans has declined a whopping 10.9 percent during the Obama administration…This decline does not include losses suffered during the financial crisis and the recession that followed, but it instead measures declines since June 2009, when the recession officially ended.

That’s not the only bad news for African-Americans. The poverty rate for blacks is now 25.8 percent. The black labor force participation rate, which rose throughout the 1980s and 1990s, has declined for the past decade and quite sharply under Obama to 61.4 percent. The black unemployment rate, according to Pew Research, stands at 13.4 percent. Among black, male, high school dropouts, PBS’ Paul Salmon reports, the unemployment rate is a staggering 95 percent.

  • Smegtasticus

    Wow. Just… wow.

  • SMB1128

    It shouldn’t matter what color the president is you idiot!

  • Illusionist The

    Did he really cite an article by Fox News under their opinion column… So I’m guessing the gist of this is that we should settle for a white republican president, not a president with a solid economic or foreign policy or a better candidate whether he be of any nationality or political party, because your feelings get hurt when your called a racist because you openly insult the president… One, your immature and shouldn’t lend a political opinion based on pure emotion, whether Obama is a good or bad president and you want a better point but to make white a talking point does make you inherently racist regardless of your intentions considering the history of America…

  • David Mumme

    I couldn’t care less if he is white, black, blue, or green. I don’t even care if he’s Republican anymore. I want a conservative with morals, a respect for the constitution, and the best interests of the people of the United States back in the White House. I am a white middle-class American male
    who believes in the equality of all men and women. If Obama had met the other criteria he may have made a fine president. Yet, like most politicians from both sides he is a liar and anti-American. That is the problem not his race.

    • Imhotep40

      You appear to be a reasonable person, whether the President is a “liar” is debatable, but what “anti-American” agenda had President Obama pushed specifically? What has his administration done to attempt to destroy our culture and/or Republic?

  • Moe

    I hope this page gets hacked. Who gives a f what color the president should be or is? So ignorant! i lost a few brain cells just reading the heading.

  • mjnellett

    Joe’s point is that when the tables were turned criticizing the president was an accepted practice only labeled as “sour grapes” at the worst. Now you have a “black” man who is so thin skinned that he seeks retribution for opposing him in anyway, shape, or form. Obama’s beloved pseudo-mommy, Valerie Jarrett said if Obama won the election, there would be HELL to pay??!! Could you imagine a non-black man, or woman saying the same thing and getting away with it?? COMPETENCE does not have a color!

  • tangxia

    Titled sounded racist, but the explanation wasn’t. Did all the butthurt liberals even read it?

    • http://www.chickenunderwear.com Chicken Underwear

      Yea, and I don’t think you understand what racism is.

  • Julianna Moreno

    Race has nothing to do with how people will react to a president. This is just a hasty generalization.

  • spencer1952

    Joe Wurzelbacher is not a plumber, he is or was an employee at an extremely small plumbing shop (Wurzelbacher and the owner) in Ohio. His real claim to fame is he owes back taxes. The stupid name ‘Joe the Plumber’ came from the senile Senator John McCain and was McCain’s second worst mistake. We all know how he cursed us with the likes of Sarah Palin, a monster he wished he never created as a matter of fact. His choice of Palin for his VP was the absolute worst mistake in the history of politics.

    • storibund

      Wow, So… aside from the personal slurs, what are your rebuttals against the facts he presents?

      • spencer1952

        That’s just it, he doesn’t present any facts. His only claim to fame is President Obama (then Senator Obama) walked down his street and he asked Obama a stupid question. McCain desperate for anything to make him relevant chose Joe the Unlicensed Plumber to be his mascot and rest is stupid history. You people are grasping for any kind of hero you can find and so far there aren’t any. Sorry.

    • Huge_Heffner

      He Spence, you think Biden is hot? You like the lies from Obama about Obamcare? Millions losing their health insurance now – and forced to pay more for that. You like that?

  • Allen

    What most of you might not understand is
    “relativism.” Is there an absolute truth to an individual’s opinion
    or view of good president, or a bad president? An opinion of a good or bad
    president varies according to differences in perception and consideration. My
    opinion is that President Obama has been “good” for the country. Yet,
    allow yourself to answer this question TRUTHFULLY… I am a black man. If I
    were to title an article “America Needs a Another “BLACK”
    Democrat President” and prefaced it with, “Wanting a Black Democrat
    president doesn’t make you racist, it just makes you American”, how would
    you feel about me?

    • storibund

      So… why don’t you write it, then?

      • Allen

        That doesn’t answer my question. Don’t be afraid to answer, I don’t bite…

  • Heavydoug

    Reagan supported apartheid in South Africa. Reagan announced his candidacy where the civil rights activists were murdered (Goodman, Cheney, Schwerner) Reagan divided the country with racism with his “welfare queens” hatespeech. I won’t get into Reagan’s illegal drug importation.

    That’s the Reagan record I know. Whatever happened to blacks during Reagan’s presidency was not because he wasn’t a racist.

    Yes Joe. I said it.. a white, Republican president was racist.

  • Joe The Redneck Bigot

    You’ll get a white democrat woman president, and you’ll just have to deal with that

  • mandate

    Watch out everyone! Kent2012 broke out the big insult vocabulary! He called me a “Twit”. It’s going to be tough sleeping tonight!

  • LaRonda Stepherson

    Blogs like this are what I’ve come to know as “troll” posts. You have no relevance in the world any longer and in defiance, you attempt to stir the pot of controversy. No one cares what you want or who you view as a racist or not. The one thing that’s crystal clear is your irrelevance. So you can join the club of “nothingness” with Palin and the other right wing trolls that live to fan the flames of racism.

  • firstchoice

    Be not discouraged, Joe. There ARE still Americans out there that can read AND comprehend what they’re reading. Please, don’t be tempted to get out the coloring book and construction paper for the apparently thought process challenged people that are leaving random, ignorant, rude, and misguided posts. Most are more than likely just leftie trolls anyway. It’s the only way they can communicate nowadays. Those with an IQ above their shoe size understood Kevin Jackson’s satire. (And the fact that it was your repost of his article.)

  • Tea Partiers are Obese Racists

    Joe the Dumber should be more interested in getting licensed and paying his taxes.

  • vlodko62

    Oops, Joe must have finished cleaning out some drainage pipes – comments are now being reviewed for content before appearing.

  • vlodko62

    You can claim whatever you want, but it does make you, Joe, a racist. Also, if you’re not smart enough to land a professional job, you’re not smart enough to have an intelligent opinion on politics. Go back to plumbing. Though come to think of it, my plumber is a lot smarter than you – so maybe garbage hauler is more appropriate.

  • spencer1952

    This article was posted by Joe the Unlicensed Plumber, but it was written by a want to be white man Uncle Tom named of Kevin Jackson..

  • firstchoice

    This is hilarious. Even Fox News, (Megan Kelly), reported this story on Joe The Plumber’s site as being Joe’s comments. What happened to fundamental journalism? Sad. BTW, for those that actually care, it came from: http://theblacksphere.net/2013/10/america-needs-white-republican-president/#BOTSZxPlAVqYyB2X.99
    When people don’t want to address the issues, just sling mud and names. No wonder Congress can’t get anything done. If this is the gene pool we’re pulling our candidates and elected bozos from, we’re doomed anyway. Somebody turn off the lights and lock the doors. No use wasting the electricity.

  • Richard Dean MacLean

    Joe – Up until now I haven’t disagreed with you on much, but you need to understand that not only is the title of this article wrong – it arms the enemy. And wanting a “white” anything IS racist.

    • Joe_Morgan

      It is not racist to want someone of your own skin color in power. It only becomes racism when you believe people of your own skin color are superior to other races. If we want to be honest with ourselves, all people on this planet are racist to a degree because we all prefer our own kind. There is nothing wrong with this, unless you’re a white person. Then it becomes a capital crime. If you’re black or hispanic or whatever, you can be proud of yourself all you want and its perfectly fine.

      • Richard Dean MacLean

        I don’t know what you mean when you say “prefer our own kind”. So, no. And if you decide anything based on the color of one’s skin, you sir are racist. It’s just wrong no matter how you try to rationalize it.

        • firstchoice

          Ummm…well, you can rationalize it from a nationalist perspective. If a Country, say Zimbabwe, wanted to elect a President, they would probably want a black man from Zimbabwe, not a white man from Europe, or a Asian man, etc. Our Country is diverse, but not equally proportionate. And the racial divisions seem to be concentrated in specific areas, not equally spread across the Nation. Many areas of the Midwest have light concentrations of anything but Caucasians. But we’ve not had the serious problems with racial inequality and violence as the Southern States have experienced. So, when a black man from Kenya, Portugal, Hawaii, New Jersey, or Chicago…(take your pick, or guess), takes office in a 51-49% national vote and then proceeds to “make fundamental changes to America” and ignores the Constitution at will, you may find that some of those Midwesterners that would prefer a Midwesterner representing them, even if he was a Caucasion. We’re not so concerned with skin color as we are with keeping our Country as a free, Constitutional Republic. This POTUS has done more to divide this Country racially than anything I can remember since the 1960’s. Of course, he’s had help from the race-baiters, Sharpton, Jackson, and his top cop, Holder. It’s a real shame. It had been getting better each decade. Now we have the History Channel running hour long “history lessons” on the KKK, the Civil War, and the Confederacy. (Only odd because they have been fixated on “Ancient Aliens” for years, until recently). Are they TRYING to ignite something? Are they TRYING to bring out the nutjobs? Strange days we’re living in.

          • Richard Dean MacLean

            The problem with your argument is that you fail to believe that one can see himself in a person of a different skin color. That is racist or at the very least prejudiced.

    • firstchoice

      Joe didn’t write the article. Come on folks, read the article and note the author. Here’s the original article and author: http://theblacksphere.net/2013/10/america-needs-white-republican-president/#BOTSZxPlAVqYyB2X.99

      • Richard Dean MacLean

        I apologize. I saw “Posted by Joe Wurzelbacher ” which made it appear as though he had written it. I’ll go over to Kevin’s site and repeat this to him though. It does arm the enemy and is a mistake (in my opinion). Sorry Joe.

      • Jed Covington

        Who gives a scheister whether he wrote it or not?!?!? He made it the very first thing you see on his blog which can only be seen as an enthusiastic endorsement of its ideas. If Bill Clinton’s web site began with an essay written by Karl Marx these tea bagger wouldn’t only accuse him of sympathizing with socialist politics, they’d call him a traitor and probably a Muslim…because they seem to think it’s the same thing (they’re not very bright unfortunately)

  • DHConner

    Shove your racist crap back up the hole it came from. I am proud to have been a Marine, and knew many fine men who were black. If we could have had Condoleeza Rice elected, my bet is that we wouldn’t be in this nasty mess we are today. I don’t give a damn whether you are black, white, or any other color. I do object to your nitwitted idea that it has to be a white Republican MALE. BS!! When Condy Rice was in the room, she was smarter than any three white men also present considered as a group. Her brilliance was one of the high points of the Bush 2 administration, and she made more sense than most of the rest of them put together. I worked as laborer in Chicago, and most others were black, while I am white. I never had a problem with anybody on a race problem, and found most of them to be more socially and religiously conservative than others (white) I knew. As my old DI would put: “SHUT YOUR FILTHY HOLE, MAGGOT!!”

    • firstchoice

      Well, a well known and respected black man wrote the article, (that Joe simply reposted). As a former Marine, you should have been taught to think first before trashing somebody for your mistake. READ: http://theblacksphere.net/2013/10/america-needs-white-republican-president/#BOTSZxPlAVqYyB2X.99

      • DHConner

        It doesn’t make one bit of difference what color he is: in my book it’s still racist. Or am I racist because I wanted Condy Rice to run? By the way, I’m not the guy who called on the race card (“white”) to begin with in this case, the author did. I don’t think color has too much to do with ability. although ironically enough being black in this country is a disability, given the racism that still prevails in many places. And yet I am conflicted because I too get tired of “Because I’m black….”. Then again when the facts come out, as they usually do here in our little “country” state of Iowa, it often turns out that in the final analysis there can be no other explanation than racism, as the courts often decide. And so then I get some salt and pepper for my crow, and eat it. But not this time. IF the issue of race were left out altogether, and the case argued on non-racial merits alone, it would be much more palatable. Sometimes we lose no matter what we do. And by the way, my new neighbors are black, and my wife says, very nice people. I live in Windsor Heights, a suburb of Des Moines, and the average home runs about $175K. In Californication they would be $500k or more, as they would in Boston, NYC, and Grosse Pointe. So we ain’t talking ditch diggers who flunked out in 3rd grade and never went back

        • Jed Covington

          Idiot- the argument here isn’t about why u dislike Obama- it’s about the premise of the article being racist.

  • Baakus

    Yeah, the last time we had a White Republican president… How’d that work out again?

    Oh wait, now the conservatives are going to claim that Bush wasn’t actually White, just like how he wasn’t actually conservative. LOL

    Didntcha know? George W. Bush was Asian!

    Face it, conservatives. A White Republican isn’t ever going to get elected again unless the GOP either A) Travels back in time; B) deports all the minorities, women, and young people from the U.S.; or C) get rid of his racist and sexist ways.

    • ThomasER916

      You’re an idiot, but you’re a Useful Idiot.

      • firstchoice

        I’m not sure useful idiots are needed anymore. We now have an over abundance of them. They can’t do anything but sit online and call conservatives names. They don’t have answers, just bitterness. I try to ignore the lefties and trolls. It’s all these “conservatives” and regular folks coming on here and jumping on Joe for “writing racist crap”, without even reading far enough to realize he didn’t write it. A well known and respected black man did. This is the discouraging issue. Even Fox News got it wrong. Threw Joe in with the guy holding the Confederate Flag at the DC rally. Wow. Not sure if the information age is advancing, or imploding.

  • Danielle Letourneau-Therrien

    Wow. Just wow.

  • hjmm

    In addition to being wrong about everything, you’re a terrible writer. Was this not edited? The grammar is awful and the argument proceeds like a third grader wrote it.

    • ThomasER916

      You’re so stupid from indoctrination you don’t even know who wrote it. You’re so stupid you’re not addressing the author.

      • hjmm

        what? who cares who wrote it?

  • Daniel Johnson

    Of course it makes you a racist. I don’t want a black president, a white president, a brown president, or any other color– I’d like a competent president. If race figures into your preference here at all, you’re a racist, period.

    • ThomasER916

      Are you talking to Kevin Jackson?

      Since you’re a Useful Idiot you need to pretend you read the article.

  • AmericanCommenter

    I love how this scumbag tries to act like this line of thinking is really for the good of black people. “I mean…just see how well they did under Republican leadership…” Common ploy used by filthy racists. Well they are saving the Democrats a LOT of money on campaigning that’s for sure.

    • ThomasER916

      I love how you’re so stupid from indoctrination you think Joe wrote this. Yes! You really are THAT stupid.

      • AmericanCommenter

        You’re the idiot Thomas for assuming I don’t know what race the author is. Every Tea-nut and fools like yourself jumping on that fact like it changes anything. The author is an idiot just like Joe the racist for reposting.

        • ThomasER916

          So the author, the BLACK author, is a “racist”?

          My GAWD you’re stupid!

          • AmericanCommenter

            Absolutely, the BLACK author, the white male that reposted this garbage, oh and you of course. I’m bored with you, carry on and spread your hate elsewhere. Thanks…buh bye.

  • PalinPrez

    LOVE THIS! Go Joe the Plumber, the TRUE AMERICAN!

    • Imhotep40

      What, in your book constitutes a “TRUE AMERICAN!?” . . . and what qualifications/credentials do you hold that enables or confers the ability to ascertain title of authenticity of any individual you encounter?

      • PalinPrez

        Anyone who is not an America hating idiot like you. It’s not that difficult to tell.

        • Imhotep40

          Yep, just as I expected, no qualification, no intellect, no basis for including yourself in the category of patriotic American. I bet you haven’t even served on the military. . . .

          • PalinPrez

            I support our men and women in uniforms. I bet you spit on them and call them baby killers.

          • Imhotep40

            Nice try, “support” vs. “Served” the military. . . I have “Served” my country, you, not so much, but yet you’re the first to claim to know who or what makes a “true American” . . . . laughable, how you wrap yourself in the flag and claim it as your own, yet you were never willing to shed blood to defend what it stands for.

  • Rich Kingdon

    If you have no tolerance for comments containing racism, why do you have tolerance for racism within the blog itself?

    • ThomasER916

      If you’re so stupid from indoctrination, how come you’re posturing knowledge?

  • disqus_l0Sqk0Sy1V

    What I love is the “Posting Policy”. Joe, the problem with your argument is that it is, indeed, racist. There are a number of philosophical, sociological, and psychological theories to support in, along with case studies, statistics, real life experiences, etc. The one I’d like to draw your attention to is “white normativity” – it’s a theory that’s categorized under the “white privilege” and “white supremacy” umbrella. Basically, it states that white is “normal” and everything else is “deviant”, “different”, “exotic”, and, in your case and most cases when discussing oh… jobs that normally apply to white men… “wrong”. Racism is engrained in American society. Educate yourself, plummer, or stop trying influence others with your backwards assumptions. Oh and by the way… ALL minorities in America are facing institutionalized cruelty imposed (often unconsciously) by the white majority.

    Joe the plumber needs to go back to unclogging toilets for living, the only reason he has a platform is because President Obama acknowledged him while he was watering the grass in front of his trailer house one day. Joe the unlicensed plumber is more a joke than anything else. This article must have written by that cricket face Uncle Tom Kevin Jackson, I’ve dealt with him one on one many times and found him to be nothing but a little punk wanting to be owned by any right wing white man who would have him. Looks like he found Joe the bummer as a love interest.

    The Republican party has made a very serious mistake by allowing the racist tea party to take over their over. The thought that “American needs a white Republican president” is only a dream for now since the GOP has shutdown the government over Obamacare. President Obama will serve as our president and a great president until 2016; after which Hillary Clinton will be elected and then re-elected in 2020. Maybe by the year 2024 there will be a ‘Republican white man’ in the White House. Maybe, but I doubt it because by then the GOP will cease to exist as a viale political party.

    • ThomasER916

      OMG you’re stupid. You really are stupid. First you crybaby about “racists” and “bigots” then you say this:

        Dude, first and foremost calm down. The true definition of stupidity or being stupid is to do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.

    Joe the Plumber what happened the last time we had a White Republican President. Oh yeah he raised the national debt by 90% over what Clinton had it at. Let alone he took a Surpluss left to him by Bill Clinton and turned it into a 11 Trillion dollar debt. how many times did the last White republican president raise the debt Limit. 7 times in 8 years. Didnt that last white Republican president also allow the worst Terrorist Attack on American Soil to happen despite having 5 months advance Warning Osama was gonna Attack on american Soil sometime in 2001 and never did anything to beef up American Security. Didnt that last White Republican President also lead us into 2 unnecessary War that said White Republican President tried to hid on a credit Card that he would hope no one would Find out about.

    That Last White Republican president was a failure. why do we need another failure of a white Republican President

  • Spencer Mead

    The article makes a flawed assumption in that
    (1) ease any perceived racial tensions
    the election of a racially diverse president to a traditionally racially similar similar office will not ease tensions, it simply shows that the populace is willing to elect a candidate without bias to their heritage. So when people actually voice their dissent they can do so for valid reasons, like
    I disagree with this policy because I believe that it will have a negative effect upon the growth of the nanotechnology sector.
    or you can voice dissent for obstructive and spurious claims like
    I think that Obama is trying to hurt America because he’s a secret Muslim
    clearly an ad hominem is nothing new in politics but these attacks highlight an aversion to anyone who is diverse in office, and the idea that the president should be white and implicitly male speaks to this fear of a diversity

    The second point is equally false
    (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race.
    Joe seems to think that somehow Obama could discuss issues of race, maybe the Trayvon Martin case in Florida will jog your memory that Obama has had to tread a fine line between his race and a perceived stereotype.

    If you see the president angry, now he’s an angry black man, so the often cool collected detached person we’ve been shown is a careful attempt at avoiding the stereotype that so many would eagerly pigeon-hole. Thus further highlighting that racism is an unresolved issue

    But let’s be clear here, you think he should be white, because your white, and you think that means something, and indeed in America it does, go to any country where you’re the minority, heck the only one in the crowd who is and that fear you think you feel is your own insecurity about having your “whiteness” removed. When you say white, you might as well be screaming “WHITE POWER”

    Therein lies your racism, you think that being white gives you power, you think that being white matters, you think that white is the right color, and for that Joe, you are a racist, because simply hiding behind a race and thinking it makes you powerful, makes you a racist.

    I’m a person, my ancestors come from many lands, my heritage is not limited to the racial contributions of my forebears, I am a child of many cultures, of many ideas, I am human, you are my brother.

            Right. Because it’s impossible for someone to believe that choosing a President based on their skin color is racism, regardless of party. Where does Joe find you people? It’s like everyone agreed to leave logic at the door.

          • mattogilvie55

            But that is exactly how Obama got elected in the first place. Do you agree or disagree?

          • blank

            Obama isn’t white, or did you mean to type “So does wanting a black democrat president mean the same?”

            Assuming the latter, Obama got elected because he was the Democratic nominee and did an excellent job of motivating the base, especially youth. He could have been purple with pink polka dots (or white) and he would have won. The economic collapse combined with two difficult wars more or less assured the Republican nominee would lose. Obviously, people were encouraged to see that a black man could be elected in the US, but this is most certainly not why he was chosen. Had it been, yes, I could consider that to be racist, though it’s of the more positive sort, so more difficult to parse. Perhaps an argument could be made that blacks voted for Obama because he was black, but it would have to make sense of the historically high pro-Democrat voting pattern among blacks for the past 50 years (80%+ since 1964).

            (My Disqus comments don’t seem to be coming through, so I’m trying again.)

            First, did you mean to ask about wanting a “black Democratic president?” You said “white,” but your response is about Obama. Did I miss something?

            To why Obama was elected, do you really think it was because he was black? There’s no meaningful evidence to support this assertion, and there’s a veritable mountain of polling evidence to show that nearly any Democrat would have won in the face of the economic collapse, two wars, liberal perceptions of an “assault on civil liberties.” Obama also energized the base, youth, etc. His ground campaign ran circles around McCain. He had the “hope” message, etc. Granted, I think he fooled a lot of people, but to take everything he and his campaign did, combined with the state of the nation at the time, and then assert he was elected because of his skin color strikes me as illogical, if not ridiculous.

            But back to Joe’s post, if the contention is “we need a white Republican president (and not a black Republican president)” I don’t see how you could argue it’s anything but racist. To want a Republican president is entirely reasonable. To want one with a certain skin color is more or less the definition of racism. I’d be interested to see if you can make an argument that it’s not.

It’s comparable to liberals who say that anyone who opposes Obama does so because he’s black. No, the vast majority do so because they think he’s a bad president. So why can’t a vast majority have voted for Obama because they thought he’d be a good president.

            But back to Joe’s post, if the contention is “we need a white Republican president [and not a black Republican president].” I don’t see how you could argue it’s anything but racist. To want a Republican president is entirely reasonable. To want one with a certain skin color is more or less the definition of racism. Joe is, in effect, buying into the liberal line that to criticize Obama is racist. What Joe would actually be better-served to argue would be a black Republican president, so conservatives could then show liberals it’s not about race, but about policy. But instead, he lays the problems at the foot of skin color. I really don’t see how you can argue this is anything *but* racism 9though, to be fair, you’ve yet to say Joe’s position isn’t racist, so you may well agree on this particular point).

          • Imhotep40

            Disagree, a majority of the American people voted (twice) for the best candidate and elected President Obama – period. Their reasons/rationale for doing so were varied; however if you think that was the majority’s reason for electing Obama, then I can see why you’re losing sleep and elections. . . . . have you ever asked yourself the logical conclusion of your characterization of Obama’s victory would mean that you’d never see another white president if that were the case?

          • mattogilvie55

            I totally disagree with you on two points. One, the best candidate was not elected either time. Secondly, I still maintain that most of the people who voted for Obama did so because of his pigmentation.., Either they were black,and this was their opportunity to have “one of them” in the WH (and I understand that), or they were the usual gaggle of white liberals who walk around with their head hung in perpetual shame because they are “white oppressors.”

  • claire6452

    Like Joe’s blog says, “It’s not about right and left. It’s about right and wrong.” Unfortunately for Joe, he’s wrong pretty close to 100% of the time.

    Wrong to post someone else’s article without citation. Wrong in blindly accepting the conclusions of this article. Wrong to ignore that even this article states that the black labor force participation rate, which rose in the 1980s and 1990s, “has declined for the past decade,” meaning that problem started under Obama’s predecessor. Wrong, Joe, over and over again, wrong.

  • Socialism: Organized Evil

    Today’s liberalism is simply communism without the manifesto.

    • Imhotep40

      Wouldn’t the converse also be true. . . . Today’s conservatism is simply fascism without a dictator?

      Extremist views or positions on the political spectrum aren’t good for the common individual irrespective of leaning.

      • Socialism: Organized Evil

        How so? If A is true, why would B also be true?

        • Imhotep40

          If you’d like a scientific definition, fundamental laws of physics define a balanced equation as a force pushing on another object (which doesn’t move) will have an equal and opposite force resisting the force; however as it relates to politics, ethics or moral optics, extremist or fundamentalist passions ignore individual (or the majority’s) liberties in an equal and opposite manner.

          It’s about balance and equilibrium in all things. . . . . extremist views and policies are unbalanced and harmful irrespective of left or right political ideology.

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            True, but I don’t see the relationship between physics and the ideology of liberalism.

            Your analogy seems to imply simple classifications of ideology and philosophy where such things don’t really exist.

            The opposite of communism isn’t necessarily fascism. The opposite of communism is also liberty and free enterprise.

            Western civilization, for example, opposes fascism, communism, socialism, and islamism.

          • Imhotep40

            Your initial statement equates extreme liberalism (or possibly liberalism of any metric) to that of unadulterated communism, yet you’re less inclined to utilize the same rhetoric to describe conservatism in its extreme form?

            I’d correct your assumption that the political “ideology/philosophy” is a linear scale, but rather a closed, circular loop (where leftist ideology is next to fascist ideology).

            You mention “islamism” in the same vain as political/economic paradigms that are not accommodated in Western cultures, which is logically incorrect. Theocracies, democracies, plutocracies etc. are comparable governmental constructs, of which all have standing practice in western culture. Sharia Law is a theocratic paradigm, which is different from Islam, like Judaism, Christianity that are organized religions. Israel is a democratic theocracy, which is part of Western culture.

            I didn’t mean to imply that fascism is the opposite of communism, but rather fascism is also the opposite of liberty and free enterprise.

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            Today’s liberalism is like communism without the manifesto.

          • Imhotep40

            I didn’t mean to imply that communism was the opposite of
            fascism, the political spectrum isn’t a linear measurement right to left, but
            rather it’s a closed loop. Fascism is just one step to the right of communism.
            The opposite of fascism “is also liberty and free enterprise.”

            The rhetoric of extreme political ideology is appropriately
            characterized by equal and opposite extremist rhetoric is my point.

            “Western civilization, for example. . . .” has embraced fascism,
            communism and socialism throughout history. “Islamism” is not a political or governmental form of organization, it’s a religion who’s practitioners are Muslim. Sharia Law is a form of theocratic governance, as more correctly compared to democracies, plutocracies, monarchies etc. Theocracies are also present in Western cultures today, like The Vatican and Israel.
            Western civilizations may, at present oppose and resist fascism, communism;
            but socialism is widely practiced in a majority of Western cultures/countries at present day.

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            Islamism is political Islam. Communism with a god, so to speak.

            It’s not the religion itself.

          • Imhotep40

            Christianism, Judaism or whatever theological “ism” you wish to differentiate, they are all theocracies (in a base political sense) which impede on civil liberties and more importantly run counter to our Constitutional separation of church and state. The Christian Right (Christianism) and Islamism have no place in our legislative process or Western ideals and freedoms we defend.

            Islamism more closely resembles a socially conservative or politically right orthodoxy, than that of a communist/leftest/socialist belief.

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            There is no “theocracy” in Christianity. There is theocracy in Islamism. I don’t know about Judaism.

            What do you call the form of government in the sovereign country that is the Vatican City State (Holy See)? Some might also define it as a monarchy, but relative to the definition of theocracy, it’s a better fit.

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            Right, but government isn’t necessarily a theocracy just because it’s in a Christian country.

            The notion of a theocracy is kind of a conspiracy theory cooked up by radical kooks on the left like Gyorgy Schwartz and Robert Reich.

        • Imhotep40

          You’re asking for me to prove a falsehood. American liberal political ideology don’t come close to communism, in much the same way as conservative ideology doesn’t come close to fascism. Please point to one liberal political agenda that is the epitome of communistic social, political and economic ideology?

          • Socialism: Organized Evil

            The intellectual vanguard of today’s liberalism is 100% neo-marxist. Cass Sunstein’s boring tome Nudge is a perfect example.

            As Sunstein elucidates in Nudge: The “big idea” of today’s liberalism is the notion that a small group of academics and intellectuals are somehow magically entitled to consciously direct the future of mankind.

            That “big idea” of today’s liberalism is the same “big idea” as yesterday’s marxism.

          • Imhotep40

            So what’s the “big idea” of today’s conservatism, since we’re comparing apples to oranges?

            What Neo-Conservative, chicken-hawk for reforming the Middle-East has even remotely improved “the future of mankind?” Intellectualism is neither a bad word nor unique to liberals or conservatives.

            That wrong-headed understanding of Trickle-Down Economics and invasion of sovereign nations for their oil has proven to be a miserable failure, which is the same failure historically documented by yesterday’s fascism.

            Please read all the parts compared straight across left to right. How does this chart fit your life experience and family up-bringing?

            Political evolution isn’t a process that turns on and off. Changes are slow for human life spans to see, but this chart is a big clue. Look at career preferences and moral differences. Granted there are many exceptions and variations on both sides. There are lots of ignorant people on both sides, but that is not a reason that justifies which side is better for society. Many on both sides can say that the chart is good for society, but one side more than the other? The right side looks more like what centuries past had for social structures and government IMO.

    So many Republicans are thoroughly irritated that 43 men have been President of the United States, and only 42 of them have been white.

  • AZDancer

    The comments are why this country is in the mess it is in. People no longer disagree and have a constructive debate. Instead the country has become all about name calling, slander, and race bating. It’s about attacking the person rather than the message. Unless the country can set these differences aside and start talking and listening with an open mind nothing will be solved. Our founders knew about to debate, discuss and compromise. Traits that are long gone today.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      I think it’s a consumption issue. We have too much media, too little meaning. The internet is not the grand, decentralized salon we imagined it would become.

      I’m not better than anyone else in this. I try to make a concentrated effort to use the new media for learning. It never happens as I’m powerless to avoid the cheap thrills of prosecuting political grudges in forums like these.

      It’s kinda f’d up that I have strong opinions on various third-party commenting systems. I wish I were using that brainspace to hold strong opinions about late-modernist painters or theories of natural cosmology.

        • ThomasER916

          Let’s consider the incredible number of Liberal Sock Accounts you’re defending, combined with your inability to understand that Copy-N-Paste doesn’t mean Author. Let’s take that into consideration as you posture enlightenment.

          That’s right! You can’t understand what Copy-N-Paste means. You don’t have the capacity to grasp something that simple. Meanwhile, your outrage is manufactured.

          So when a Libby screams racism over an article that was written by someone else, it puts it all into perspective. The “mind” of a Libtard is a wad of bumper-stickers.

          • Perrofelix

            Oh no, I get that Joe presented the article as if it were his own, and then included a link to “read the rest” that ended up showing the full article including the author. I get that he doesn;t kniow how to do attribution properly. I understand that the way you would normally do this is with copying and pasting, or via “Copy-N-Paste”(tm) as you call it.

            Telling me my feelings are manufactured because I “don’t understand Copy-N-Paste” is quite a leap.

          • ThomasER916

            “I get that he doesn;t kniow how to do attribution properly”

            ^^Children, this is what happens when you inflate your diction. Your grammar falls apart, usage becomes clunky and unnatural, and spelling is atrocious.

          • Perrofelix

            Oh, typo police. Goody goody. Because you think I’m too dumb to know how to write “doesn’t” or “know” and that this comes because I’m trying to “talk all mighty high”. I should stick to “I get that he dunno” and it’d be okay.

            On the other hand, your deflated vocabulary on this thread is what happens when you don’t bother to get an education. Al you can do is run around accusing others of creating sock puppets and calling them “d!ckless libtards” and idiots. You haven’t even addressed the thesis of the piece or its criticisms in any of your 30 or so comments here. You are wasting my time and yours.

          • ThomasER916

            “You are wasting my time and yours.”

            Typical Libtard, moralizing to everyone. Are you going to be a Food Fascist and force me to eat Kale while you eat double cheeseburgers like your thunder-thighed Messiah Moochelle?

          • Perrofelix

            You are free to keep posting in empty space. I never told you to stop. I encourage you to keep showing everyone the bright lights that shine in the TEA Party mind.

What exactly is the problem? Stuck in a dead end job? Wife leave you? Impotency? Debt? Envy? These are your problems. Grow some balls and fix them. Stop blaming everyone else

  • deanrd

    When you read that stupid article and realize that taxes are the lowest in 60 years, according to Republicans, we should be doing wonderful. And the reason we aren’t? Oh, because of Obama. And the GOP base actually believes it.

      What’s even more amazing is when we read your comments, you’re just too stupid to realize Joe never wrote it. Yes! You really are THAT stupid!

  • Scott

    “Posting Policy: We have no tolerance for comments containing violence, racism, vulgarity, profanity, all caps, or discourteous behavior. Thank you for partnering with us to maintain a courteous and useful public environment where we can engage in reasonable discourse.” Does this apply to the actual article? That is, if one were to say, “I don’t like black presidents, and the above article demonstrates why this is totally not racist,” does that mean that such an utterance is not racist? Silly rhetorical games are fun, but intelligence is more desirable.

  • Sean Gale

    Number one: statements like, “America needs a white Republican president” are inherently racist, and you’re making a statement that it’s not doesn’t make it true.

    Number two: whoever thought that the election of President Obama was simply going to end racism in this country has never spent 2 minutes with a bigot, and has no idea how entrenched fear and stupidity can be. This was always going to be difficult at best, primarily because of fools like you now had race-baiting the president as an option, which you had never had before.

    And number three: you’re a failed plumber. Why should we take your opinion about the piping in our houses, let alone our national politics? Simply because cranky John McCain, in a feeble attempt to connect with the common man pulled you out of a crowd? In that case, let’s let the girls that rockstars pull up on stage to dance with them vote on the Grammys and the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

    Hey Joe, the problem is, none of these “White” presidents have had their American credentials questioned. If there had just been criticism of Obama’s policies, maybe the critics would not have been called racist. Many weren’t called racist. It is the racism inherent in the criticism (he is not like us) (he is Muslim) (he hates America) (he is a communist, nazi, you name it) that makes the critics seen as Racists. Say he spends too much money. Fine. Say he is too liberal. Fine. Say he wants to tax the rich more. FIne. Unfortunately, these criticisms are all too often tinged with the racist – he isn’t one of us and that IS racist.

  • Jeffrey Robinson

    Just FYI, Joe the Racist,

    Just because you are reposting an African American doesn’t make you ‘non racist.’

    There are plenty of current and historical examples of members of a race that are self hating and subservient in regard to race and culture.

    In our culture, Joe the Idiot, it’s called “Uncle Tom.”

    Oh, wait that would require you to actually be educated and well read with critical thinking skills. No wonder your are a conservative! My bad.

    Racist.

        Manufacture outrage? Oh, because it actually can’t solicit a response from emotionally dead puppets of the conservative baby jesus party like yourself. Your limited intellect and empathy only allow you knee jerk reactions and you feel threats from all fronts readily, as any coward.

        You see, in order to have a debate, Thomas, you actually have to have some language and logic skills. Since you are bankrupt in both, you only have the dried tit called FOX news that you constantly suckle from to feel meaningful and intellectual.

        It’s ok, you keep in that bubble. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

            So – you don’t masturbate? Oh, wait, that’s right, it would displease baby Jesus. What’s funny about you painfully ignorant people is that you project your own misguided values on others, stupidly thinking it will insult when all it does is perplex and mystify. Sorta like an odd zoo animal.

            And let’s see, my real name is on this account, and you can look me up and find out I’m the epic libtard you accuse me of; but not a lying idiot that uses the word sock account without actually looking it up, doing my research, and making a fool of myself in the process.

            But hey, that’s what you authority loving conservatives are trained to do, right? Way to go on becoming a non person.

            Also, to be retarded is to not be able to express one’s ideas articulately and intelligently as you just proved in your woeful inability to respond to anything I posted.

            Keep it up! It’s astounding fools like you that can’t think yourself out of a wet paper bag that is giving liberals the country back, in case you haven’t been keeping up with current events.

    For six long years, conservatives said nothing while America blew its
    wad rebuilding the infrastructure and governments of the Muslim
    countries of Iraq and Afghanistan while letting America go to hell in a
    handbasket. “Needy Iraqi? Here’s a new school and a new hospital! Needy
    Afghani? Here’s a new road and a new police force! Needy American? Y’all
    can just go to hell!” Sounds downright traitorous to me, but then
    again, I’m not a Muslim loving TEA party dunce!
    The TEA party’s
    preferred presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, is from Canada, their
    favorite news channel, FOXNews, was started by an Australian, and, as
    has already been established, they don’t mind all their tax dollars
    going to fund Muslim countries, but balk at any help for America. That
    America hate is strong in this group! I’m sure that the Middle East
    would welcome your traitorous extremism.

  • Jed Covington

    Sorry…didn’t see it was Fox that “showcased” it. I’m sure it is totally “fair and balanced” as they have no agenda at all. Did they send you a pitcher of Kool-Aid with it? Did it taste like Reagan’s hair dye? Sooo delicious!

    • ThomasER916

      I saw that you created this Sock Account. Was it anything like your Sandra “Funded by Leftists” Fluke?

      • Perrofelix

        First, it’s called a “sock puppet” account. Second, I see from his history that Jed has been posting for 7 months with this account. You’d do better to call mine a sock puppet since it’s only been 3 days or so since it was created. But I see you have been randomly calling half a dozen or so accounts here “Sock Accounts”. Yes my account is new, yes, I am new here, and yes, this is probably the last time I’ll want to engage on this site, dealing with the likes of you and giving Joe’s site “monetized eyeballs.”

        • ThomasER916

          First of all, you’re an idiot. If you want to make a point then make a valid point. Sock Account is the shorthand version of Sock Puppet Account. No one says tarpaulin anymore. They say tarp. I know you’re stupid but you’re not that stupid.

          I would say “quit being anally retentive” however you’re a raging homosexual so that’s not possible.

          • Perrofelix

            My point that Jed’s account is at least 7 months old remains, no?

          • ThomasER916

            Your “point” was to pose as someone with a towering intellect and superior education. That was your first point. You failed.

            Now go to the doctor and get your rectal prolapse taken care of. Your b-hole is not a va-jay-jay. Make sense?

          • Perrofelix

            What? Sorry you see it that way. I call it responding to the author’s article and to its supporters and detractors. Actually responding to the ideas being discussed, not just generically calling everyone idiots and libtards and trying to make humor out of homophobia. You still haven’t explained how a 7-month old account with comments on multiple stories is suddenly a sock puppet. I’m leaving now to go get chicken wings. Don’t take that as a sign of “victory.” I have better things to do than keep replying to a thread that only has you actively commenting on it right now.

          • ThomasER916

            Sure you are. You just keep posting. You can’t help yourself. Pavlov was right. You need to slobber at an imaginary dinner because the bell is ringing.

    Well, if a black man said it, it must not be racist lol. Seriously, how stupid are you?

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      You mean like the n-word?

      Oh, wait. You mean totally not like the n-word. The n-word can be racist or not racist depending on whether the speaker is black. A rhetorical frame which enables criticism of a Democrat President is always racist, even if he’s a white guy from Arkansas, IIRC.

      • Bigmouth

        >>The n-word can be racist or not racist depending on whether the speaker is black.<<

        Um, no. The n-word can be racist or not depending on CONTEXT. Which is why a number of black leaders have called for a boycott of its use even by BLACK comics. Keep trying, though. A foolish consistency is always the hobgoblin of little minds like yours lol.

  • tori445

    I have a hard time understanding why everyone is bashing Joe for writing this article when it was very clearly written by Kevin Jackson. An African American. Read the rest at TheBlackSphere.net And Joe did not plagiarize the article, it is here posted here verbatim as it was written by Mr. Jackson. There seems to be a lack of comprehension with many of the posters here. I do not necessarily agree with the entire article or Mr. Wurzelbacher.

    • Jed Covington

      Because Kevin Jackson is not taken seriously by anyone except white conservatives looking for a token black conservative who supports their views. His numbers are notoriously taken out of context and manipulated. Anyone who really wants to understand the socioeconomic issues he’s dealing with would do well to research them on his or her own –if they did they would quickly find Jackson’s claims false -or blatant misrepresentations at the least.

      My racial bias as a white male is most other white males are a bunch of impotent losers, so afraid their old shriveled hands are slowly slipping off the wheels of power –and so frightened by this skinny black man who became president that they have endowed him with almost supernatural powers. How else, they ask, could have my life turned out so wrong and my Johnson shriveled to the size of a peanut? How come that nerd from homeroom is making so much more money than me? It can’t be my fault! It can’t be that I never went college! College is for elitist snobs! Hey-Party of Individual Responsibility –Take some for yourself and stop blaming the guy with the “foreign sounding” name in the Whitehouse.

      • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

        I noticed that another aspect of white privilege you readily avail yourself of is the one where you’re entitled to define blackness over the heads of actual black people and helpfully whitesplain which ones are “real” blacks and which are “tokens”. You’re the best, man. Keep it going.

        • Jed Covington

          I agree with everything you wrote…except the bit about White Plains. I need to do some research on that bit.

      • aftica

        Your comments are more racist than most others in this site. You prove my point. And Obama is a half caste, half white. More racial profiling

  • mbryan

    “Fighting for one’s civil rights was not racist then, nor is it racist now.” No, but defending your unearned privileges and systemic advantages, while attacking every program that tends to favor the poor because they are statistically more likely to be minorities, definitely is racist – and that’s what the Tea Party really is all about: defending white privilege against a perceived loss of control of the nation’s affairs to that black man in the White House.

    No one criticizes the Tea Party critics of the President because they are disagreeing with a black man. We criticize those critics because they use racial stereotypes and slurs to do so. Examples? Insisting that he is a Nigerian Muslim. Calling him the “food stamp” President. Depicting him as a tribal shaman with a bone in his nose when criticizing Obamacare. Nobody is fooled by the thinly veiled racism of such “criticism”. If black or hispanic critics of a white President were to depict him committing incest with a too-closely-related cousin, or picking a banjo in a denim coverall, or calling him the WASP-in-Chief, or insisting against all evidence and reason that he was actually born in Sweden because that’s his father’s heritage, THAT would be racist – and THAT is exactly how the Tea Party chooses to “criticize” this President.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      No one criticizes the Tea Party critics of the President because they are disagreeing with a black man.

      I just tried the search string, “because ‘black man in the white house'” and returned three and a half million hits of progressive bloggers and pundits being precisely that reductive. I could try other permutations, but, you know, you said “no one” and I can just cite Martin Bashir and call it a day. The fact that is known between you and I and everyone else reading this is that President Obama’s defenders rarely strive to address his critics with more depth than “because, black man in the white house”. I don’t think you’re being deliberately obtuse by suggesting otherwise. I just assume that you, like others of your party, are on an extended bender, drunk on the most facile and demagogically potent arguments available to you and haven’t had a sober moment to audit the quality of your rhetoric for some time.

      • Jed Covington

        Do you even understand the post you just responded to? Thank God Americans are finally waking up to what’s been happening in the GOP. You’re now strictly a regional party. Take what’s left of your dignity with you and secede. It’s OK with us this time…

        • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

          It was okay with your party last time too, wasn’t it?

          • Jed Covington

            Technically. But then again the Democratic party was predominantly southern at the time. This ended when Johnson signed the Civil Rights act and they all fled en masse to the GOP. This is not mere speculation on my part, those are the facts. So yes, they were Democrats in the same way you could say the Menudo of 1995 had the same name as the Menudo of 1982. So a point to you. Well played.

          • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

            Actually, the fact is that all of two congressmen fled to the GOP. The rest of the Democrat segregationist caucus remained Democrats until their retirements. For Fritz Hollings, for example, that was as late as 2005. That they were capable of simply abandoning apocalyptic racial rhetoric when it became politically unprofitable testifies of how venal and insincere the progressive mind is as much as does the readiness of the northern elements of the party to forgive and forget.

            Not so much with the base, though. Those New Deal, WPA, “Union Yes!” types who were the heart of the Democrat Solid South constituency preferred to go for an independent who was progressive and segregationist to Nixon. Then the base down there returned to the party fold for Carter.

            Wait a minute. How did that happen? Am I counting this right? Let’s see… it was Lyndon Baines “Just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference, or it’ll be like Reconstruction all over again” Johnson. Then Nixon and the south went for Wallace. Then Ford while the south went for Carter. Then Carter won and the south went for him that time too… .

            Wait, I think I see where I got it mixed up. Was Carter a Republican?

          • Jed Covington

            Incredibly disingenuous answer…you know I was speaking of southern dems as a whole not simply the congress that voted on that one particular bill..Thurmond, Lott, Finally and dozens of other elected officials switched parties as a result of the voting rights act…Nixon and Reagan both employed their infamous southern strategies by dog whistling a crowd-rand now they’ve taken over the party. The South is all they have now and soon even Texas will be in the D column, probably by 2020, maybe 24. But, hey, if that’s what you believe (( and I think you know you’re full of it) than more power to you. You’re free to see the world however you like. Enjoy it while it lasts. that

          • Jed Covington

            And if you really believe the south would have voted Humphrey over Nixon if ( and I love that you call him a segregationist and a progressive) Wallace hadn’t been in the race then you’re either a liar or a fool.

    Quit talking about what the American People need. The American People voted in fairly our current President in a peaceful, democratic election. It was the choice of the majority of the American People. Nothing could possibly be more just or patriotic.

        Yes, I know, Joe took this article written by a black man. I’m aware of that, but obviously it reflects Joe’s sentiment. The election was NOT riddled with fraud, unlike the last time a Republican was elected President.

        And I read a lot of news. BBC, PBS, local news, Wall Street Journal, NYTimes, DailyMail.

        And YOUR news of choice, Kent? Hmm, lemme guess…Starts with “F”, ends with “X”, rhymes with “Pox.”

      I love this “there was an election, therefor dissent is wrong” argument I keep hearing from Democrats lately. I don’t remember it being so popular from 2000-2008, though.

        No one is arguing dissent is wrong. What they argue is that if you win an election it means the bulk of the people favored your policies, so to keep arguing that you’re doing this on behalf of the American people who not only voted against you in the last election, but who have shown in poll after poll that they disagree with your tactics even more now , is a bit disingenuous. The truth is you’re finished as a national arty and this is the only card you have left to play.

  • OhioBrian

    Wow! This is so disgraceful I don’t even know where to begin. Very much a more insidious vein though of the now common ransom argument “Vote for Republicans..otherwise they’ll go batty, hold government hostage, and cause chaos throughout the land.” How do you explain to someone though that it is ignorance that causes racism when they are absolutely ignorant of just how racist they already are?! It must be those simple minorities though voting as they do in almost irreproachable majorities for the Democrats, while the white “Solid South” is the bulwark of the Republican party. Whatever their arguments today, don’t forget the continuous thread all the way back to when Goldwater turned his back on the Civil Rights Act, and Nixon/Reagan turned their backs on black people coming after MLK’s advances with their “Southern Strategy” fanning the flames of racial resentment. It’s not lost on African Americans (“back when they had sanity” according to Joe) that Reagan launched his official presidential campaign with his famous dog whistle “States’ Rights” (as opposed to civil?) speech in Philadelphia, Mississippi…that town of brotherly love (among its few thousand citizens) previously most well known for the 1964 civil rights workers’ deaths that occurred there. Oh, but I guess Reagan was good for the economy…say nothing for the fact that he cut taxes immensely yet not government spending..a government stimulus almost unprecedented in our history yet was the start of our ballooning debt and deficits. Bush/Obama faced with the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression though have very little to work with, even having to cut hundreds of thousands of government jobs due to Republican austerity moves. Just sayin u’d think that as many dirt pipes as Joe’s dealt with, his blowtorch and hacksaw would be worn out by now!

    • JosephP

      “Wow! This is so disgraceful!” is all that needs to be said.

      • ThomasER916

        “Wow! You’re a d!ckless Libtard!” is all that needs to be said.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      I know where to start: It’s his own fault for causing the confusion, but Joe didn’t write this. This is a re-post of a thing written by a black conservative, Kevin Jackson.

      From there, I suppose we could point out that both you and Jackson are wrong on the timeframe of black Americans losing/retaining/gaining their sanity, so to speak. Blacks have gone for Democrats since Hoover. In other words, black voters voted for Democrats throughout the period in which this meant voting for the same people lighting crosses on their lawns. This puts a crimp in the facile narrative that has it that, while the white population of the south remained static with regard to racial attitudes, the parties dramatically realigned, thus explaining the GOP’s hold on the formerly Democrat-held “solid south” and black voters’ overwhelming preference for the Democrat party.

      The south didn’t actually go fully to the GOP until the 90’s, some time after both the CRA and the “southern strategy”. In the interim, the Democrat party managed to elect two southern, white males to the presidency. This further complicates the narrative, no? What happened then?

      At the time the CRA was passed, fewer than a quarter of the American public supported segregation and the space within the south in which racist rhetoric was politically profitable was shrinking. This was in large part due to the war-funded industrialization of the south, which drew in populations from the north and west and engendered a new middleclass there. This new middleclass was disproportionately voting for GOP candidates leaving the Democrat party with a shrinking demographic of workingclass racists. LBJ, who had spent his entire senate career caucusing with the segregationist wing of his party, was shrewd enough to recognize he had to cut bait and cede the region. The region didn’t leave the Democrat party so quickly, however.

      Nixon replaced LBJ and announced his “southern strategy” as a strategy to move southern politics past the politics of racial hate and towards the expansion and acquisition of the growing suburban, middleclass, christian demographic of the south for the GOP. If it were a bid to acquire the workingclass racist vote, it was an abject failure. The states of the deep south instead opted to go as a block for the independent campaign of the progressive segregationist candidate, George Wallace. Then the south went for Jimmy Carter.

      By the time Reagan made his second (not first) campaign stop at the Neshoba County Fair, a popular forum for stump speeches and politicking, he was separated from the Mississippi Burning incident by twenty miles and sixteen years. There is nonetheless an advanced form of Guilt By Association fallacy which prevails among Democrat supporters which attributes guilt by association on Reagan’s part to a thing which happened through a place he spoke at sixteen years prior. The brief element of his speech which mentioned “states rights” was not about Civil Rights, but about Social Security and the Dept. of Education and other parts of the federal purview which had been drastically expanded by the Great Society legislation. The meaning of his appearance in the south was to drive his campaign directly into the heart of the territory of his incumbent opponent, Jimmy Carter, who is never regarded as anything other than a bulwark of progressive values. As if to lay the phoniness of the claim against Reagan’s appearance bare, the 1988 Democrat presidential candidate, Michael Dukakis gave a speech at the Neshoba County Fair on the same stage as Reagan had, and came away from it with no one claiming that he was covertly celebrating the murder of civil rights activists by doing so. It’s horseshit.

      • OhioBrian

        Yes, very true this page gives no proper attribute to Mr. Jackson being the original author other than the link at the end. Joe did post though so most would essentially assume he agrees with the article’s premise. Also, I object to the “blacks losing sanity” verbiage in the article as to me this is racist.

        Next, true that black people have been voting Democrat…for president, though back to Roosevelt, not Hoover…Al Smith also did some of the groundwork. The common stat I’ve seen is 23% went for FDR in ’32, with 71% going for in ’36..a landslide year. After this though presidential support stayed in upper 60’s & 70’s till the Truman & Dixiecrat split bump, and then finally to mid 80% range with Civil Rights Act, and Goldwater running partly on “States’ Rights”. -In ’64 he captured only his home state of Arizona, and the deep southern states. This was essentially the “switch” as before Democratic candidates usually did best in the South and less well elsewhere. It somewhat mirrored Southern politics too which you alluded to; many African Americans polled up until this time considered themselves Republican and voted this way Congressionally/locally yet voted Democrat for president, just as many in the South called themselves Democrats..even though they had started voting Republican for president. 2008 was the culmination of this worsening trend with over 95% of the black vote going for Obama, and although 2012 was less percentage wise, this year was the highest black turnout ever and surpassed the white rate for the first time ever as well. But all this illustrates is that the trend has been getting worse, not better over time.

        You are correct too that many in the civil rights era did not support segregation, or were overtly racist, however that doesn’t remove culpability as there were many or even majorities against actively helping black people overcome these problems at the time; many were opposed to segregation..especially laws enforcing, but many were also opposed to civil rights laws as “you can’t change peoples’ minds through legislation” or “these issues should be left to the states and individual business owners.” It was into this world that the Republican Party could have taken the high road and supported civil rights reversing the trend of blacks voting more and more for Democrats, but instead the national party (not necessarily local or Congress) decided to do what was politically expedient at the time and sideline or even antagonize the black communities’ concerns, while appealing to the resentments and fears of whites. And I’m not sure the argument that blacks have been supporting Democrats back to Roosevelt is not worse than thinking it only goes back to the 60s, as this sets a horrible standard, one of which again has only been getting worse over time. This was also my “continuous thread” argument, that whatever the views of the Republican party today or even if their arguments are valid as they are in some instances I think on racial issues like Affirmative Action, breakup of black families, personal responsibility, etc., there’s an ugly line that is still not recognized and connects the party back to a seedier past.

        The Neshoba speech is one example: While true that Dukakis spoke there, Reagan was the first presidential candidate to do so and to invoke “States’ Rights” while not mentioning Civil, in an area where yes, the murders were 16 years before however still extremely raw in the minds of many. This was because most of the killers had or were then being released from jail as never charged with murder, only civil rights violations by the federal government. At best, and I mean the very best, giving such a speech could only be chalked up to being extremely insensitive, and then of course Reagan never apologized for it, nor stuff like the “Cadillac Welfare Queens”, veto-ing the Anti-Apartheid Act..which then got the very rare override, or even directly for saying the CRA “humiliates the South.” Again, I don’t think Reagan was a racist, but running for the third time in 1980 and during his presidency, he and many Republicans certainly flamed these fires when politically expedient…and they definitely were at the time which is why it was done, though historically this now looks reprehensible. Ironically, Republicans are somewhat getting a taste of their own medicine in this sense these days as starting to feel like a minority party or that they are being marginalized…which in some cases there are legitimate grievances and Democrats have to recognize their own failures in reaching out or antagonizing people, namely Southerners..many of which used to vote for them.

        For more as I don’t want to get into everything, reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan's_Neshoba_County_Fair_%22states'_rights%22_speech

        Finally, it seems to me too that all too often conservatives seem obsessed with trying to convince themselves that they haven’t had a racially charged past, rather than appealing to those whose votes they haven’t been getting…many for the past 80 years! And what I would say loud and clear is that if this history is not recognized, or much worse is denied or “white washed”, Republicans will never get the black vote in any capacity, especially as there’s still so many that lived through these eras who vote now as they did then(or even more so), and are telling the truth to their children and grandchildren on this issue while Republicans are still telling (mainly themselves) lies.

        Oh, and about Dukakis speaking there, it is actually surprising they didn’t think he was celebrating the tragedies of the civil rights activists…after all from the infamous “Willie Horton” ad, ”Dukakis not only opposes the death penalty, he allowed first-degree murderers to have weekend passes from prison.” This being perhaps the culmination of playing on racial fears and resentments.

        Hehe, the culmination of life imitating (graphic) art…Mayor Quimby supports revolving door prisons. He even released Sideshow Bob…a man twice convicted of attempted murder. Can you trust a man like Mayor Quimby? Vote Sideshow Bob for Mayor.

      Not very bright, are you? Joe did not criticize the president once in this article. He criticized the way in which criticism of the President is handled and said this “problem” would all go away if we just elected a white Republican president.

      An analogy would be arguing that you could solve political, cultural and social conflicts and conflicts about a about desegregation by just exterminating/exporting all the black people. That wouldn’t be racist, would it?

        No, unlike some, I’m not a troll…how many spammers have posted just a few messages I might ask? Also, ironic as I actually think of myself as pretty conservative on a lot of issues, but think the Republican party’s gone off the reservation over this one, and they’re never gonna get minority votes or get back to being a majority party by putting forth antagonistic, incendiary stuff like this. It actually infuriates me that in some ways that every presidential election this problem only gets worse; it’s no accident either that Ken Mehlman and Michael Steele have apologized for the Southern Strategy and if the modern party wants to get back into the good graces of a lot of people, its going to have to stop calling this, or Republicans’ ignoring of the black vote, concerns, etc. over the past century, a myth, or otherwise try to rewrite this history. Reagan, who I don’t think was personally a racist, did appeal to a lot of these resentments in both the North & South at the expense of black people…and there’s been plenty of people within his administration and involved in Republican politics at the time that have confessed as much…probably the most famous incident being Lee Atwater’s extremely candid explanation.

  • WardKendall

    Even though you didn’t write the article, Joe, I and many others agree with its sentiments 100%. But I’ll up the ante even further: we need a WHITE COUNTRY even more so – or at least white back to 1955 standards. Then we white Americans could breathe free again, criticize whom we want, laugh and joke about whom we want, and live in the kinds of neighborhoods where we want – without being called “racist” ever again.

    Because THAT was a better, freer, happier America and every white man in his heart knows it!

    More importantly, the very existence of Western Civilization is now at stake, as reading this powerful, thought-provoking novel will show you:

    • XsojX

      As an American Indian, can I suggest you all just leave and go back to your perspective cave holes? America didn’t start as white, didn’t become white and never will be white. Get over your fallible idea. Furthermore, western civilization has NOTHING to do with being white.

I am a white man (born a while after 1955 though) and I don’t think “in my heart” that me and my Latino boyfriend would be welcome in your 1955. Your 1955 where you could keep the women and the minorities down, call people ch*nks, j*ps, n*ggers, without being called racist again. Yep. Your 1955 where your car got 10 miles to the gallon but that was okay because we were not going to run out of fossil fuel or warm the planet to the point where massive species die-offs are beginning. Your 1955 that was still a good 14 years before the Stonewall riots where gays and lesbians (and trannies) finally fought back against police harassment… where police harassment was ONLY kept at bay when those gay establishments run by the mob paid police their extortion money. A time when married abused women didn’t have much choice but to stay with their abusers.

      “THAT was a better, freer, happier America” in your imagination for every selfish white tea party man who longs for an era when he was in control and could put his foot on the neck of anyone else who was a little different.

      You are really saying that you wish you were someplace/sometime where everyone was just like you so you didn’t need to have any consideration for anyone else. You are a fossil. A dinosaur. And your time has run out. DON’T speak for me as a white man.

    If you actually RTFA You would see this is just a verbatim repost of a BLACK AUTHOR, Which he cites the original source at the bottom.

    But go ahead and keeping making an ass of yourself showing that you dont know how to read.

    • XsojX

      That is not a citation. He should have used an introduction instead of copying and pasting an entire article. He also should have quoted or highlighted words lifted verbatim. Saying “read more” suggests there is more evidence to support his thoughts, NOT that it is a mirror image of what his article states. No, sir, take your RTFA comment and grab a copy of the “Little Brown Book of Grammar”. I’m sure the title will scare you off, but at least you will learn what a proper citation is. Cheerio, captain.

            Can you count? I’m asking a question as to whether or not you understand simple numbers. Stupid people can count. You can’t count. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence can look and see who the party of top 10 Richest Congressmen. You can’t. Anyone can look and see which party gets the most votes rich and welfare queens. You can’t.

          • exboyracer

            Being rich isn’t the problem — not knowing the meaning of noblesse oblige is the problem — Why do you vote against your best interests – it amazes me.

            Look at the Kochs vs Gates or Buffet — who gives back more to this country that gave them the tools to make themselves rich.

    • Perrofelix

      Oh, ok. Joe is completely blameless and does not hold any of these ideas at all and is therefore unworthy of criticism. Whatever.

    If you haven’t read it, Joe is pointing out how stupid the news folks are for reporting that he wrote this. He failed to properly indicate he was simply cutting and pasting by inserting quotes (“) and properly using in article citations. Just digging for, copying and pasting such an idiotic article makes him truly the bigger jerk here. He posted it as if it were his words, and deserves the fall out.

    I don’t think you know what a racist is.

  • Semanitc Warrior

    At all the (caps lock plagued) posts that a black man originally authored this article, it only furthers the criticism that this guy needs to stay away from political commentary (and plumbing), as there is zero credit given on this page. No introduction, just a link at the end “read the rest”.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      I up-voted you because, you’re right. It nonetheless remains that readers and reviewers at other sites also have responsibilities that they neglected. C&L, RawStory, LiberalLand and others were deliberately shady with their commentary. If they have a problem with what Kevin Jackson wrote, they should direct their criticism at Kevin Jackson. That they appear to have fished around for the most notable white GOP figure to have reposted it kinda makes them look like sleazy exploitationists.

      They each avoided mentioning that Werlzbacher didn’t write the thing as much as they could, enclosing it in parentheses and not even mentioning Jackson by name in one case. Not identifying Jackson as black matters as well. If this site had misrepresented something posted at C&L so deliberately and egregiously, the left would take it as another opportunity to compare conservative media to Hutu genocide radio (which, oddly enough, would not be read as a “dog whistle”).

      • XsojX

        You forget that toilet boy himself forgets to mention he copied and pasted another man’s work. A link is not a citation. This would get a fail in middle school English and as blogging articles go, he deserves the trouble he caused by not thinking when he dug up the article and passed it on as if he wrote it and used a link to read more as an afterthought and not a citation. There should have been an introduction, quotation marks or highlighted feature (like the other article he lifted) and proper citation.

        • ThomasER916

          You failed to mention you just created this Sock Account just to spam manufactured Libtard outrage like Saul Alinsky taught.

      • Perrofelix

        “Not identifying Jackson as black matters as well” only for those who fail to understand how Uncle Tom-ism works. As a gay man, I’m used to seeing other gays quoted on outrageous things. Either hedonists supporting reckless hedonism, or Uncle Tom closet cases saying we all should be put in jail. The fact that a gay man said it (or black man here) is supposed to give some weighty authority to the article when all it means is that we found someone “special” to say what we wanted to hear said from said racial/ethnic/cultural group.

  • vonlmo

    Dr Ben Carson ain’t Republican enuf for you?

  • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

    A prominent notification at the top of the page, perhaps prefixing the title, “Guest Commentary: …” letting readers know immediately that they’re not reading something written by a white guy might have allayed some of the offense here. Even that of those who are deliberately seeking to be offended.

    The article itself is a provocative way to argue that the punitive rhetoric of empty accusation of racism used as a first, second and last resort by President Obama’s defenders harms representative democracy and blinds black constituents to the ways their own interests have been neglected by his administration.

    The text as it was written, however, would not carry the same meaning if it were written by a white person. That the manner in which it was posted gives that impression was an avoidable mistake and it’s Joe’s own fault that it came off that way.

    I’d be just as happy if the president were a female or Asian (Bobby Jindal? Mrs Gov of South Carolina?). I remember when Hillary was the frontrunner and suddenly all the rhetoric on Fox news had some very gender based criticisms. And if you want to blame someone you should blame yourselves for electing dimwits to represent you. I am bipartisan and not loyal to any one party. Find someone normal; someone who can speak in complete sentences, who isn’t deeply disconnected to voters- (that is, the broader American public and not just your party base) who isn’t hearing voices (from god?). My own republican friends hate that the party is hijacked and turned into a religious institution more than a business one. They want the old republicanism back. Pro Business and No Religion or other sanctimonious ‘values.’ By the way, business structures are changing very rapidly but so many of your “leaders” are too old school to recognize real modern business needs. You seriously are dated and disconnected. ‘Go get em tiger.’

    • JessicaSideways

      Can I ask WHY you are bipartisan? I mean, isn’t it obvious that the Republicans don’t care about democracy and the rule of law, that they will perform any sort of shifty underground bullshit to get what they want, regardless of who it hurts?

      • ThomasER916

        OMG you’re stupid!

        You’re so indoctrinated you’re actually stupid. Congratulations on being a Useful Idiot!

        • JessicaSideways

          Yes, go ahead, use ad hominem attacks. You prove that you have no response to the very serious claims against the Republican party. Good job.

          • ThomasER916

            LOL! You really are stupid. All of a sudden you want to clutch your pearls and feint in outrage over “ad hominem”? What a fking moron!

            Did you understand that?

            You’re so dumb you can’t read your own posts. Look down at your posted pic. Oh yeah! That’s right! You’re an idiot! But you’re a Useful Idiot for Cultural Marxism.

          • JessicaSideways

            I’m not outraged, ad hominem attacks are par for the course when dealing with conservatives. Their points are invalid so they resort to personal attacks. Nothing new about this.

          • ThomasER916

            OK. So you’re just stupid then. I got it. Attack anyone and everyone labeled as the enemy by your Wise Overlords, while simultaneously holding any response as “invalid.”

            This is called “Cognitive Dissonance.” You’re not smart enough to understand what that means. This post is not for you.

    You are an idiot. If you don’t understand why black people do not vote Republican, all you have to do is read your own statements. And I say as a black person, John Boehner is a disgrace to people of color. LOL

          • JessicaSideways

            I’m a teetotaler. How does that play with your stupid assertion?

            I am a liberal because I care about having a good government and want politicians that are mentally stable. Things the Republicans are opposed to.

          • ThomasER916

            (There it is! You said it again!)

            You’re a Liberal because you’re stupid and can’t think for yourself. You’re an idiot who’s too dumb to know the difference between an agenda and an individual behavior, as indicated in your post. You’re a moron who can’t define “good government” let alone describe it.

            Hope!
            Change!
            Good Government!

            ^^Libtard Slogans for people who can’t think.

            Hope for what?
            Change to what?
            Good how?

          • JessicaSideways

            It figures a person with a heart and a mind as black as yours would see a problem with hope, change and good government.

            Good government helps to protect it’s people and it’s people’s liberties. It tries to help the poor, build infrastructure and basically do the things we can’t do alone.

            Yet, you claim that I can’t describe it. I just did. Why do you thing good government is somehow a bad thing? Why do you thing that government should be a stasi like state that the GOP wants?

          • ThomasER916

            Oh so now you can magically see in to the hearts and minds of humanity! You must be a Libtard.

            “Good government helps to protect it’s people and it’s people’s liberties.”
            ^^You mean through military force? More police? So “good government” is the exact opposite of Mayor Bloomberg and Moochelle, both of whom are food fascists.

            “It tries to help the poor, build infrastructure and basically do the things we can’t do alone.”
            ^^ For starters, government cannot “help” the poor. There isn’t a single metric to show that any government has ever “helped” anyone become less poor. If government “helped” the poor than North Korea would have less poor than South Korea. Detroit would has less poor than the Michigan suburbs.

            When you try to describe something, you only manage to illustrate your own stupidity. We get to see that here:

            “Why do you thing that government should be a stasi like state that the GOP wants?”
            East Germany was a Leftist/Socialist creation. Only Liberals and Leftists supported it and still support Socialism, Marxism and Communism. Yes, you really are THAT stupid.

          • JessicaSideways

            I am a teetotaler. How does that play with your stupid assertion that liberals are drug pushers?

          • ThomasER916

            You can say that again!

          • JessicaSideways

            But, are you saying that you made that stupid statement SOBER? That, I think, is more telling of your intellect because if you were stoned or high or whatever, at least that would justify why you would say such a stupid thing. So, now I have to guess… behavioural disorder?

          • ThomasER916

            Cognitive Dissonance… again.

            You obviously can’t follow your own posts you wrote to justify your ad hominem. Like I said before, this isn’t for you. This is so other people can see what Cognitive Dissonance looks like.

          • JessicaSideways

            How is this cognitive dissonance? You said I was a baby killer, which I am not. That is a clear ad hominem attack. It is libellous and disgusting.

          • ThomasER916

            So you’re too stupid to understand Obama’s stance against the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act” or Democrat support for Kermit Gosnell? You’re a Liberal. You said it yourself. You said that Liberals care about “good government”. This is the “good government” of Liberals, just like in Romania where an Abortion Culture was created by your “good government.”

            BTW, since you’re too stupid to follow what I’m doing it’s called Polymath. You should look that up too!

          • JessicaSideways

            First of all, Democrats roundly denounced Gosnell because of his unsafe medical practice. There is nothing wrong with abortion but Gosnell’s practice was an aberration of standards of care.

            And no, what you are not doing is called polymath, it is called trolling.

          • ThomasER916

            “Democrats roundly denounced Gosnell because of his unsafe medical practice.”

            There was a media black out. Where is Obama’s two cents? Where is this “roundly” you’re blathering about?

            You’re an idiot. You’re so stupid from indoctrination you need to keep lying over and over again. You’re so stupid you think the Communist Stazi have something in common with people that also want less government. Yes, you’re that stupid.

      And his repeating it means he’s cosigning. I love how every time Conservatives do or say something stupid, it’s sarcasm.

        If you’re too dense to understand that Mr. Jackson was using juxtaposition of the racism cries by liberals with the obviously satirical call for a white President to make a point, I feel sorry for you. It must be hard going through life so clueless.

        • Emmy Emmenstien

          Please explain the juxtaposition and the satirical call, I don’t see it. I see a back writer explaining that black people were more properous under Republicans and only gave Regan years as an example but fails to explain how any policies enacted under Regain goes to directly affect them.
          The premise about critisizing the president is simple the American thing to do. This opening staement alone make me question his take on reality as he was obviously around for the Bush years. “You are with us or against us” Remember that one. Remember the Dixie Chicks?
          This alone takes any credibility away from anything he says.

          This guy worte this article for you to feel better about yourself for being racist.

        • Emmy Emmenstien

          Also, no, it is not racist to criticize Obama. But you do have
          to wonder about the worldview of those people who didn’t seem to care
          about debts, deficits, being tread on, or presidents’ middle names and
          birth certificates until Obama got elected. Hell of a
          coincidence.

          Ah “racism cries”. The evil liberals are crying racism with none to be found because Conservatives are sweet and accepting people of everyone regardless of race, religion, income, etc.

    • Perrofelix

      This article is obviously NOT sarcasm though I know you wish it were. You also get the same reply I made above. And I won’t fall silent just because it was written by a black man, any more than I’ll stop criticizing Clarence Thomas for just about every ruling he ever makes, or the president for using drone strikes too much.

      “Not identifying Jackson as black matters as well” only for those who fail to understand how Uncle Tom-ism works. As a gay man, I’m used to seeing other gays quoted on outrageous things.

If you had, you would have realized this article was written by a black man who was using sarcasm and intentionally inflammatory statements to make a point. If you have issues with what was said you need to take them up with Kevin Jackson, not Joe.

      • Emmy Emmenstien

    I love it. Joe re-posts an article from TheBlackSphere, written by a black man who uses sarcasm to point out the double standards of racism claims and the over use of the race card.

  • http://rippdemup.com/ RiPPa

    Damn, Joe The Plumber doesn’t even have any love for a possible Black Republican president. I suppose somewhere right now Herman Cain is bleaching his skin so as to be acceptable.

  • Rate Dermatologist

    It changed a lot… It exposed the hell out of bigots like you

  • JamesPiekko1

    The GOP needs more heroes like Joe the Plumber to stand up and tell us what they think and not feel the need to hide behind subtle euphanism that we don’t always understand. Use your freedom of speech to show who you really are, don’t hide, don’t run. Make a public display of yourself like one of those paintings with Jesus giving us the Constitution!

  • Curt

    Why does anyone even respond to this idiot. Giving him attention gives him a sense of worth and relevance in an otherwise worthless and irrelevant life.

  • johnsawyer

    So Joe’s solution to people criticizing a black president simply because he’s black, is to not have a black president? Wow.

    • Bart Smith

      It’s not Joe’s article, idiot. It was written by Kevin Jackson, who happens to be black, and originally posted on TheBlackSphere. Joe just re-posted it here so we could all laugh at the illiterate, liberal fools jumping to conclusions and pulling out the worn out race card. He knew a black man being sarcastic to make a point would fly right over your heads.

        No BART, Its become clear YOU don’t get the sarcasm behind Kevin Jackson’s post.

    Spoken like a true racist -

  • bahndon

    I am not racist I do not like Joe Biden either !!!

  • Formicophiliac

    Take your meds, Joe.

  • bahndon

    Obama, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and Eric Holder would be the hunters, hunting for run away slaves if this was america 1840’s

    • Formicophiliac

      ?

      You have no idea what you’re talking about.

      • bahndon

        I know exactly what I am talking about, The boys I mentioned have been keeping the black population on the government plantation since Martin Luther King was killed. I firmly believe Al and Jessie had something to do with haveing MLK killed. MLK wanted peaceful protests, Al, and Jessie wanted violence and look at what occurred after MLK was killed, Al and Jessie got what they wanted.

        • Rovell Hoyman

          Al Sharpton was 13 years old in April 1968 when Dr. King was killed. If he could aid a high profile assassination plot at that age, he’d probably be knocking over buildings with his mind and in control of all North America by now. Jesse Jackson? I don’t believe it personally, but it is at least theoretically possible.

          • bahndon

            In 1969, Sharpton was appointed by Jesse Jackson as youth director of Operation Breadbasket, a group that focused on the promotion of new and better jobs for African-Americans.[20]

          • Perrofelix

            Oh, kind of like how the American people had a hand in assassinating JFK then, by electing him president?

          • Rovell Hoyman

            So you’re saying he participated in the plot to murder King the year before he became involved with Operation Breadbasket? Long shot, if you ask me. Monumentally so. However, you are free to lay siege to windmills if you like. There are less noble pursuits.

  • Aaron Henry

    “Posting Policy….We have no tolerance for comments containing violence, racism,….etc.”

    LOL, I think they should start with the article itself before they make demands on the commenters.

  • c-bass

    Weird – I don’t recall anyone ever saying “hang him from a tree” or “send him back to Western Europe” when they complained about white Presidents. That’s a new thing, Joe the Lying Racist.

  • godblessusa

    If the Republican party wants to remain a factor nationally, it must lose its embrace of the 1800s.

    Joe, your post sums that up nicely.

  • Bart Smith

    I love all the liberal idiots blasting Joe for this article and calling him a racist for writing it. They all so illiterate they can’t even figure out it was a sarcastic article posted on TheBlackSphere.net and written by a black man.

    • Perrofelix

      Glad you’ve posted that on here about 15 times — without understanding that by incorrectly posting the article Joe was endorsing it, making him a just target for the criticism. I’ll add that you need to check the definition of sarcasm, because this is not intended sarcasm.

  • Willie F Dicks, Jr

    If you want to really know what racist really are you should remember that on the day that President Obama became President, the republicans were meeting on that same day to set their goals for when he took the chair and that was to oppose EVERYTHING that he would present while in office and make him a one term President. They were not able to make him a one term President but are still working hard to destroy anything that he presents, even if it were something they supported before he started supporting the same program. That is racist behavior any way you look at it.

  • CentralScruntinizer

    Gosh Joe, your clear and totally non-racist and absolutely non-moronic writings totally made me realize that the GOP reaction to Obama is totally non-racist. When 65% of registered republicans believe he was born in Kenya, thats the height of policy debate; When 52% of registered republicans believe his is Muslim, thats just a disagreement over foreign policy. When sitting members of congress yell and heckle during the state of the Union speech, that’s respectful discourse.

    Thanks for the clarification, Joe! You’re as swell as ever.

  • Sheldon Gramps

    Sorry Joe, but guess what? Your last white Republican president was a disaster! Under Dubya we had illegal wars, tax cuts for the rich, no child left behind, Hurricane Katrina, waterboarding ,9-11, numerous
    embassy attacks which make Benghazi look like child’s play and the great recession of 2008. Thanks Joe but no thanks, no more Republican presidents of any race.

  • Warden

    Actually dipshit, it makes you a racist by the very definition. You disgrace your race and your nation with your ignorance. You’ve been a joke since you came on the scene.

  • Kemp Honeycutt

    You, sir, are the very definition of a racist. During the 2008 campaign you came across as little more than a fool, but now we see there’s so much more to you than that. It amazes me that anybody, even the most base tea partier, cares one whit what you think.

  • John Kelly

    We had a white Republican president for eight years not so long ago. In those eight years we had the first ever major terrorist attack on US soil, two wars (one of which was based on false information), an abysmally inept response to a natural disaster, and the worst economic recession in decades.
    More of that? Thanks, but no thanks.

    Notice who wrote it.

    • Bart Smith

      All the idiots are too busy screaming “Racist!!” to realize the post was written by a black man using sarcasm to make a point.

  • kfsone

    It’s not about whether you criticize him, his policies, lifestyle etc, it’s about whether or not you label him by the color of his skin.

    When you write an article that categorizes him as a “black president” explicitly for the purposes of contrast vs a white president, that is definitively racist. Doesn’t get any simpler than that.

    You’re trying to say you feel the race card gets pulled every time you level genuine criticism at Obama. But that’s not what you said. You said “I want a WHITE guy not a BLACK guy”.

    The best way to avoid having the race card pulled on you like this, Joe, is to recognize that we all have some amount/shape of bigotry inside us. We all have a leaning towards some form of it. What counts is whether you’re honest enough to look inside and see it and keep it from shaping you.

    That doesn’t mean getting all PC, IMO that’s as bigoted as not saying the things in the first place. It means being aware enough of your prejudices to try and avoid them shaping your words and actions.

    You utterly failed at that in this article.

    • Bart Smith

      Are you too illiterate to follow the link and realize this article was not written by Joe, but by a black man using sarcasm and intentionally inflammatory statements to make a point?

  • TRush

    Newsflash folks…this article is from Kevin Jackson on his website, not Joe the Plumber. Second, Kevin Jackson is African American. Last, if none of you can think deep enough to get the thrust of what Kevin is saying and you are just scraping the mental surface, then you need to go back to school to learn the Enlish language and brush up on your craft writing skills….maybe some day you will learn to grasp the article.

            missing home are we? slip on away back to the frenzied fantasy world that works for you…you still have not figured out what this legislation is all about, but time will heal all of you misconceptions…..

          • Perrofelix

            If only we could have more valid policy criticism like “massa” and “kenyan boy,” then no one would be complaining that much the criticism of the President is racist in nature.

          • jadugara

            Here,…let’s look at some of your rhetoric… Let’s scrutinize this drivel closely…

            You said to me that I “still have not figured out what this legislation is all about”….as if it’s some scary secret agenda that, if only I truly understood it, would I then suddenly wake up and totally agree with your lunacy…

            This kind of garbage you’re spewing is nothing short of comical when you recall that Obamacare was a conservative answer to the doomed “Hillarycare” plan (which would have mandated that most employers provide decent coverage for their workers). The Republican Party’s last presidential nominee called the very similar scheme he’d enacted as governor of Massachusetts, “the ultimate conservatism,” adding: “that’s why the Heritage Foundation worked with us… [they] recognized that the principles of free enterprise and personal responsibility were at work.” Of the provision that conservatives now decry as an egregious assault on Americans’ freedoms, Mitt Romney explained, “we got the idea of an individual mandate… from [Newt Gingrich], and [Newt] got it from the Heritage Foundation.”

            When you get into the details, the health care law is complex, with a whole bunch of moving parts (it’s certainly a lot more complex than “Medicare for all” would have been). But the broad strokes are relatively simple: there are a number of (highly popular) new regulations on insurers; there are exchanges where private companies offer a variety of insurance plans; it’s got subsidies that make those plans more affordable for the middle class; there’s an expansion of Medicaid for the poor, and a mandate – Romney referred to it as his “personal responsibility program” – which makes those popular regulations work.

            Yeah,…wow,…now that I finally realize “what this legislation is all about”,…it’s so TOTALLY scary that I’m shaking in my boots, just like you…NOT…

            Grow up, dude… Put your “big boy” pants on, move out of your mother’s basement, and join an adult discussion for once in your pathetic life…

          The point of my comment was that everything Obama was sold as – namely, the Great Racial Uniter – turns out to have been a carefully crafted lie. In fact, he has deliberately taken American BACKWARDS in terms of race relations. Many of us suspected it would turn out thus, and so it has.

    I like Joe the Plumber, at least he has a job helping people who truly needs it. Unlike the people we pay to take our freedoms away in Washington, DC. It matters not if we got rid of all of them and started over, we are too far gone and are now a socialistic country. The low lifes will still get their candy while the working people pay for it. Until the working people take care of it permanently, it will be business as usual. Keep working, someone on welfare is depending on you.

  • Michael Mlyniec

    This is sad. You are basically telling me that no one else other than a White person can be patriotic and serve their country legitimately. I’m not mexican, I’m American with mexican and native descent, and you’re telling me that I’m ineligible to be president because of possibility of race baiting with the media or because of what people may think of you if you were to criticize me? Sounds pathetic to me. You sir, are race baiting also, just as bad as the ones in office and in the media. OUR PROBLEM IS NOT WITH A BLACK PRESIDENT (Or any other “color”), ITS WITH CORRUPTION , GREED, AND THE LACK OF MORALS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE GOVERNMENT AND MEDIA. What we need is a Strong Patriotic Conservative president with strong morals, and one who obeys laws.

  • John Richter

    Unfortunately, Joe, dems are ignorant. They fail to see that the black as president experiment failed badly and now want to try a female president.

    • Stan H

      Black President “experiment”? Obama’s brought us out of the recession, the banking and housing collapses, saved the auto industry, and got us (mostly) out of Dubya’s wars, despite mindless GOP obstructionism to an extent never seen before. Dems (and most of the country) want a female president because we realize that 1) Democratic policies are far better for the Country, and 2) The Teapublicans have driven the GOP so far right, that practically no one with any common sense will vote for them in the future.

Instead of you dealing with that truth, you cry and blame any and everybody but yourself for your shortcomings and failures.

    “The Iroquois were very clear that we don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors but instead borrow it from our grandchildren. Therefore, they built an absolute injunction into their system of governance stipulating that every decision be made in the context of its impact on the seventh generation from that time…. Even more significant is the Iroquois knew women were the ones among them who were the most concerned with the seventh generation. Therefore, in four of the five Nations of the original Iroquois Confederacy, only women could vote in matters of long range importance.” – Thom Hartmann.

        because it is originally written by a racist black man, it does nothing
        to take away the responsibility of Joe here–he reposted this article

I’m not just referring to the thinly veiled stuff, but the out in the open “faggot Barney Frank and his boyfriend” stuff, “HNIC” (we know what that stands for), “$lut” and “senior Ho” referring to Hillary if she were elected, and on and on.

  • BRobCleveland

    OK, this is the single most stupid thing I have ever read in a long long time. And my eyeballs are hurting now.

    So you have a Black president, and he is criticized. And some of the criticism is racist in nature. And that racist criticism is called “racist.” So the “solution” to racist criticism being called racist is to . . . not have any more Black presidents? Only elect White guys . . . because the criticism of them will not be called racist?

    Oh,OK.

    But by that same logic, since some could have called “racist” the bigots (like Joe Gargiola) who made Jackie Robinson’s life miserable, then the “solution” would be to not let any Black people play baseball. You are, in essence, saying that the racists should win and, because they are racists and people want to call them what they are, that is a good reason to not let Black people compete and win.

    If this is not the dumbest most self hating and self limiting argument I have ever heard, then I don’t know what is . . . .

  • David J. Gill

    I’ll tell ya Joe, it is difficult to have courteous and useful dialog with anyone that shares your viewpoints because the ideas you guys bring to the table and the issues on your agenda are so hyper-irrational, and irrelevant that there is usually nothing a thoughtful person can say. The BLACK PRESIDENT thing I just read is a bunch of baloney…it doesn’t make sense. You don’t even realize, apparently, how your rationale and false logic parallel the kinds of things said years ago by right-wing types in this country about Jews, Catholics, blacks and gay people….AND even go back to the justifications Southerners made for slavery. I don’t think Republicans like you know anything about our real history or ever bother to think about it. We got the same kind of unbelievable stupidity from you guys about cutting the Federal budget last year. Balancing the budget was what Herbert Hoover did in 1930 and it made the Depression much worse. It’s basic economics with a little knowledge of history. But all we heard from Republicans during that budget mess was childish, arrogant demands for stupid policies.

    The First Amendment does not obligate anyone to listen to what you have to say or offer any respect. EXPECT NO RESPECT FOR THE BLACK PRESIDENT STORY or any other idea that you want to free lance like that. I’ve come to the conclusion that REPUBLICANS WANT WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN AND IF THE WHOLE COUNTRY GOES TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET THAT’S FINE. The 1st Amendment has nothing to do with tolerating stupid ideas. You see what I mean…YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS ABOUT!

    You guys love to talk about how great Reagan was! But your Reagan is some crack-pot fantasy that never existed. I VOTED FOR REAGAN TWICE. He was a political leader who was rational, he negotiated and compromised and found common ground with Democrats.

    But the Republican strategy since Obama was elected has been to ignore, condemn, deny and completely oppose any proposal from the White House or Democrats in Congress. Republicans don’t want to have a factual debate on any issue and refuse to participate constructively. Mr. Obama has been unbelievably patient and willing to compromise with Republicans on every legislative issue that has come along. The Affordable Care Act is far from perfect and everything wrong with it is bad policy concocted by Republicans who played a game of willful ignorance and pandering to the stupidest voters in America and then proudly doubled down on ignorance in the face of any criticism. I bet you actually believe the Democrats plan included death panels…right? It didn’t….how can we ” engage in reasonable discourse” when you claim things to be true that don’t exist?

    Are LIBERALS destroying America? Are you afraid of LIBERALS DESTROYING AMERICA? I AM AFRAID THAT IDIOTS ARE DESTROYING AMERICA! You are one of the idiots. THE TEA PARTY IDIOTS ARE DESTROYING THE PARTY OF LINCOLN AND NOW THEY WANT TO JUST KEEP GOING. You guys love to pretend the founding fathers or Reagan are with you…right? I KNOW A BIT OF HISTORY AND I KNOW WHAT LINCOLN WOULD THINK OF YOUR IGNORANCE.

      no it is in juxtaposition to communism, something that you embrace along with a number of uneducated twits and pseudo intellectuals…..

      • shawn_von_socialist

        there is no intellectual right

        there is no global intellectual giant-of the right period

        • Kent2012

          and you follow in their footsteps supporting the parasite concept of economics…America stands for something that is alien to you, responsibility…credibility…character. Citing two geniuses and suggesting that they are proud “anything” is a stretch…..but that is how most fantasies are constructed. Your hero stood at the mike and told Americans “you did not build this”, that went farther and deeper than the superficial meaning….keep cheering your race baiting communist, the truth will shine a bright light on you and the others that think that this country is theirs for the “picking”…

          • M Jackson

            “You did not build this” was the President’s reference to the infra-structure that delivers the wares of business to the people every day and is a product of the Federal Government of The U.S.A..
            The ‘you did not build this’ that you refer to is a Lie perpetrated on the ignorant republican voters by Romney’s losing campaign/Fox ‘News’ with brazenly manipulated editing of the President’s remarks.
            That you cite this reference from the echo chamber of fallacies that is the Tea Party is really pathetic. And like the rest of your cult, you haven’t the slightest idea what the word ‘communism’ means. Ignorance Hurts.

          • Kent2012

            really and the idiots that slammed GWB when he boarded a USN ship proudly displaying the banner “mission accomplished” that referenced their conclusion of the current assignment and the return for refit…of course clowns that never served their country have not got a clue…oh and your bull$hit about the infra-structure, that is laughable…..keep on cheering the african pretender fool….

          • M Jackson

            The president’s comment is an undeniable matter of public record — you can access and view it at any time. The b.s. is all coming from your side. What GB Jrs. embarrassing stunt on the aircraft carrier has to do with anything is a secret that obviously only you have the answer to.

          • Kent2012

            you still do not have a clue….

          • M Jackson

            In regards to being able to decipher your idiotic ramblings, no, not a clue.
            Kind of like listening to other dingbats in your cult like ‘Crazy Eyes’ Bachman or failed governor Palin, or Huey Long-wannabe Cruz or birth defect poster boy Gohmert, etc..

    You’re sill racist, The simple act of trying to have no tolerance for racist behavior in the comments section, and than make a post asking for a white president, oh the hypocrisy is high in this blog. A person should be judged by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. so stop hating.

    • Ed Richardson

      The reason most people dislike your hero is his lack of character,NOT the color of his skin.I dislike him for what’s between his ears!

    • Perrofelix

      Oh yeah, Republicans are going to think that your racism is ok because you are not white… kinda like they thought Zimmerman COULDN’T be racist because he was half Peruvian. My Peruvian ex-boyfriend’s family was among the racist people I have ever encountered. They had choice things to say about the indigenous, about blacks, and sadly, really really wanted to be white. So your comment does not surprise me at all.

  • Fair

  • bud weems

    I want a job like Joe or any one of these other Teabag reactionaries. Michelle Malkin. Sarah “Brilliant Mind” Palin. Ted Cruz. What a life it must be! Spend the day in the hot tub smoking cigars and drinking beer. Get out every now and then for a camera moment. Type some silly crap off the top of my head into my blog. Check my accounts to make sure the gun ads are paying off. Go back to the hot tub, maybe brush up my spray-on and get some new sunglasses on the way. I’d skip the racist dirty talk, though. It’s just not me.

  • Texas4Pete

    Joe, your 15 minutes is long time over.

  • EmilyChance

    Wait, wait, wait… criticizing the president was “the American thing to do” before Barack Obama? I seem to remember a ton of conservatives very publicly saying that criticizing the president during war time was “un-patriotic.” Remember the backlash the Dixie Chicks got for it?

    As for the “fact” that you’re not racists, I’d like to remind everyone that the Individual Mandate was an idea that was invented by the Heritage Foundation, espoused by Newt Gingrich during his time as speaker, and implemented by Mitt Romney during his time as MA governor. It was only when a black Democrat started talking about making it a law that conservatives decided that they didn’t like it. Whether that was because Barack Obama is a black man or because he’s a Democrat, I don’t know, but you’re all either racists or partisans, and neither of those is something to be proud of.

  • Dee Ree

    Wow, Obama sure does scare the crap out of white men. They are so afraid they are losing their power:/

    • Cuppa

      Not all of us. Some of us are happy to share with everyone!

  • Ian Smith

    The presence of inverse racism does not validate your racist statements that white presidents are necessarily more qualified than a black one. Nor does any sane person believe that all criticism of our current black president is inherently racist. Maybe just yours.

  • usorthem3

    • anthony002

      President Carter, Ted Kennedy, Charles Rangel, Bob Kerrey, John Kerry and Tammy Baldwin, Al Gore to name a few are veterans.

      Not sure what point you are trying to make given that former VP Cheney and Newt Gingirch had more important things to do, as opposed to serving.

      • oldgoatee

        Al Gore? The only Spec 5 “war correspondent” to have his own bodyguard?
        Tammy Baldwin-no mention of military service in any biography.
        John Kerry-Mr 3 Purple Hearts for splinters and a Bronze Star for shooting a 15-year-old in the back (but running away was very threatening)
        Teddy K…everybody in the ’50’s was drafted, much more yes, democratic, then…same with Charlie Rangel.
        Jimmah Cahtuh-hid out from WWII in the Naval Academy, should have enlisted in the Navy or whatever service and gone to the Pacific where others went…
        Bob Kerrey…a true hero. Also a self-made businessman. How did he wind up a progressive unless it got him movie star @#$%^?

        • anthony002

          I stand corrected on one point. Tammy Duckworth, not Tammy Baldwin.

          Ted Kennedy was not drafted, he enlisted. Yes his father intervened to get him a safe assignment. No doubt, many parents with that kind of influence who had lost one son in a war and almost lost another in that same war, would do the same.

          Charles Rangel also enlisted, and earned a Bronze Star. So while I confused the two Tammy’s, you on the other hand have no idea what you are talking about.

          other than my error on Tammy Duckworth, you cannot dispute the accuracy of my rebuttal to MSGT USAF, so you denigrate the service of the people I cite.

          whatever turns you on

          • oldgoatee

            Joe, Jack and Bobby Kennedy all enlisted during WWII. Joe and Jack became officers and Bobby remained an ordinary seaman. Teddy did volunteer after being kicked out of Harvard. He tried for Military Intelligence but couldn’t get a security clearance. His dad did keep him out of Korea, though. He made PFC in 22 months in wartime, I made SP4 in 13 months in peacetime…

    • oldgoatee

      None of those he mentions are exactly a Hackworth, a Horner, or a Halsey…

  • Stephen McAvoy

    Dear Lord, what an amazing lack of self-awareness this guy has. Not only a profound misunderstanding of the word “racism” but a clear and disturbing lack of any realization that he is expressing and promoting racism in the very article in which he proclaims he isn’t racist. What a disgusting human being.

    It;s also so not racist to refer to black people in sweeping terms, like ” Blacks have disagreed with policy positions of about every Republican president in the modern era, including those who have helped them.” This article is gross.

    • JoeNCA

      Seriously. 30% of African Americans are voting for Chris Christie, an unheard of amount for a Republican. Because even when he disagrees with the president, he still respects him as the president.

      • Perrofelix

        Sadly, I think most of the commenters here would call Christie a “RINO” precisely BECAUSE of that.

        • oldgoatee

          Nope, his gun-control, cap n tax, amnesty and pro-Muslim stances far outweigh his fawning over Obozo…

          • Perrofelix

            Well great, I do enjoy a circular firing squad on the right side of the aisle.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Amnesty? Pro-Muslim? What’s wrong with that? Amnesty is the very foundation of our society…you know…fair and humane treatment of everyone? And pro-Muslim…of course you think just because he’s not persecuting them for their beliefs (which is vehemently against the Constitution on many levels) that he’s “promoting” their religion. I’m so tired of you religious extremists trying to turn our government into a theocracy based on the Christian religion. Freedom of Religion does NOT mean, establish YOUR religion as the law of the land and then repress all other views by any means necessary, up to and including mass extermination of those who practice these beliefs.

          • oldgoatee

            What, I used to believe in political asylum for those fleeing the Fascists and Communists, but I wonder now…fleeing low wages and no benefits is not exactly the same. Let them stay in their countries and fight for what we have!
            And a socio-politico-religious movement for whom lying to those outside their belief system is not only encouraged, but required? How would it be possible to accept a loyalty oath to the USA from someone who adheres to this system…

          • Justin O’Reilly

            What if they CAN’T fight? It’s not so easy as to just do that. And what socio-politico-religious movement are you referring to? And whose belief sytem? And you missed my point…you extremists denounce every attempt to stop you from forcing YOUR beliefs on others and persecute them if they do not comply as an attack on your religious freedom. Well what about everyone’s religious freedom? I’m a Christo-Buddhist…and I can tell you right now the very second you read that you’ll be like “shit…there’s no such thing, there is only ONE God and Jesus is His only son, and if this kid doesn’t accept that, then a minister should beat him into submission lest we lose another one to the Hell reserved for everyone ‘not us.'” This is how the Right thinks, whether you choose to believe that or not. But that’s not so weird to me because while spiritually I’m a Christian (Catholic), philosophically I’m a Buddhist, and as such I respect ALL walks of life and I feel it’s a waste of time and energy, not to mention it is morally WRONG to persecute others simply because their beliefs and customs don’t fall in line with ours, or more specifically, yours. And if you’re referring to Sharia Law, I’m against that too. I’m against ANY form of government or political movement that seeks to forcefully impose its will on an entire populace. Hitler was like that…he felt it was his Christian duty (and has made several admissions to the fact, as well as being under God’s protection) to establish (albeit his own twisted version) a theocracy and exterminate all religious dissidents, starting with gypsies and Jews, then he moved onto other political dissidents that he wasn’t in favour of. So I hope you can understand my concern over the direction that today’s Republicans are taking…and why it is I do not vote for them or the organizations they represent…and if they weren’t controlled by the Tea Party and KKK and Stormfront, I’d actually vote for a Repub once in a while…it’s a matter of keeping things within reason.

          • oldgoatee

            Actually, you’re very reasonable and I wouldn’t in theory have any disagreement with you…

  • oldgoatee

    I haven’t seen so much misdirected and out of place outrage since Carter-Clinton-Obama supporter Paula Deen made the mistake of saying that she once uttered a proscribed word back in the day. What I think (and I may be wrong) Joe’s trying to say is that when Reagan or either Bush was criticized, we just sat there and took it, but with Clinton (the “first black president”) it was only sex, which I could care less about, draft-dodging and disrespect for the military was another matter, and with Obozo all criticism is racism rather than disagreement with the man’s policies.

    • mattogilvie55

      At last, someone gets it!

      • oldgoatee

        Most of us do, but the ones who don’t sure are vocal!

        • HF

          That’s because a lot of you are too ashamed to publicly admit how racist you are.

    • JoeNCA

      Please. Republicans have been milking racism for decades ever since Nixon used the Southern Strategy to gain the vote of disaffected racists. It comes across as racist because it is racist.

      You know why Republicans care about a baby when it’s in the womb but not out of it? Because you can’t tell on an ultrasound if it’s a white baby or a black baby. Once they know, they don’t care. Healthcare? Education? They might be black and if they are then you immediately think they’re just lazy black kids, sucking at your teat.

      You’re racist. Own it.

      • oldgoatee

        We would like for all babies regardless of color to have parents who love them and who will educate them, make sure they get an education whether it is charter or private or public schools, cover them on healthcare until they can make it on their own, and teach them to make it on their own, I guess that is racist.

    • Taleisin

      When Bush was president it was called treason to criticize him or his policies.
      Why do Americans have such bad memories? I hope with Affordable Healthcare,
      you will at last be able to get proper medication to fix that.

      • Perrofelix

        Yes! “You’re with us or you’re with the terrorists” and then it was decided that the Dixie Chicks were with the terrorists and they were blacklisted from country radio and got death threats. Why? Simply because Natalie Maines said, the Chicks were “…ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas.”

        • Taleisin

          This piece of racist garbage was obviously written to outrage liberals.

  • HomerTh

    Sometimes I am completely dumb-founded. I can hardly wait to see what idiotic things you will come up with when a woman is elected president.

    • mattogilvie55

      If it is a conservative women, we don’t care.

      • Perrofelix

        But if it’s a liberal woman, you’ll be looking forward to an article, “America needs a male Republican president”

        • mattogilvie55

          A male republican president is far better than a female liberal president.

          • JoeNCA

            Because of the male part?

          • mattogilvie55

            Not that you would know anything about make parts, since you don’t have one. but you know what I was talking about, puke.

            Well, us old farts gotta stick together, right?

          • Perrofelix

            Yes, your point is that that a white male is always best. Otherwise we could just have an article “America needs a Republican president” but the juice of “America needs a MALE Republican president” is in the “male,” just like the juice of this article is in the “white,” not the “Republican.”

          • oldgoatee

            Nope, a conservative is always best! Mia Love is a black conservative woman and I wouldn’t mind seeing her in higher office. Susana Martinez is a Hispanic conservative woman and I wouldn’t mind seeing her in higher office…

          • mattogilvie55

            No, liar, a conservative male is far better than a liberal woman. Than again, a conservative dog would be better than a liberal woman. Gary Ridgeway would be better than a liberal woman!

          • Justin O’Reilly

            I’m pretty sure you just outed your misogyny by comparing women to dogs (and stating that a dog is above women on a hierarchical perspective to boot).

          • bluejacket472

            At this point, we may be so far past the tipping point, that it doesn’t matter who is President.

          • mattogilvie55

            You may be right, but I’m not willing to throw in the towel just yet.

          • bluejacket472

            I would hope not, as I’m not either. In spite of the obvious below board tactics we all saw on the last election, I still intend to vote. My comment to you was only to recommend you spread some “eggs” to other baskets should this applecart finally turnover.

          • oldgoatee

            And Mr. or Miss Lindsey Graham is no conservative anyway!

          • mattogilvie55

            I will not argue that point. but Mrs. Graham would be far better than Mrs. Clinton.

          • oldgoatee

            Mrs. Graham, Mrs. McCain, Mrs. Boehner, Mrs. Christie…probably most RINO wives would be better than Shrillary!

          • M Jackson

            Queenie has an unseen ‘wife’ who lives in Canada? No, not this despicable closet case.

  • JoeNCA

    Yes, that’s why when George W. Bush (just to clarify, a white man) was president, those who opposed his policies were never called “un-American” or “standing with the terrorists.” You know, patriotism!

  • John Angst

    One big flaw.. There was a TON of SEETHING mad people about Obama being President before he had even been sworn in or signed even one bill into law.

    IF not racism, what was it? You didn’t even have any policies that he’d enacted yet to BE so mad at him about…

    • John Angst

      I remember thinking GW Bush was going to turn out to be a horrible President, but I didn’t *HATE* the man with a passion, question everything about his personal life AND attack everything he did – whether it be true or not…

      It actually wasn’t until the day he said ‘no one predicted the levee’s would fail’ that I lost any and all respect for that man. (There is video of him sitting at a conference with people telling him the levee’s were going to fail.)

      So ya Joe, hate the President ‘for his policies’ except, you hated him before he even had any policies out to hate. Explain that.

      • oldgoatee

        So Katrina was Bush’s fault? Probably because all of the people in the South like to drive SUV’s and pickup trucks (try getting your sissy arugula and tofu to market in Prii…)

          Gosh, I wish I was a fortune teller like you!

          • mattogilvie55

            You didn’t have to be a fortune teller. You just had to pay attention.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            So basically, you’re telling me that you “just had to pay attention” to accurately predict future events…wow…I guess that makes EVERYBODY Nostradamus them…you know that guy on the radio that said that the rapture was going to happen on May 21, 2011? He was “paying attention” too…

          • mattogilvie55

            No he wasn’t. He was repeating false doctrine.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Just like you….it can’t work both ways….and he claimed, as you have that he was paying attention to biblical analysis.

            But regardless…if you can predict future events by “paying attention,” then so can anyone else who cares to become a dimestore fortune teller…and by the same token, if nobody can foretell future events (which is more likely), then neither can you, in any way, shape or form, whether it’s repeating false doctrine (and you are right, it WAS false), or the convenient excuse of “paying attention.”

            And may ask to what you were paying this attention? Because no credible information source would EVER be so STUPID as to make bullshit claims like “we KNEW he was socialist” or “we KNEW this guy was this, that or the other thing, before even taking office.”

            You suspected…that is all…and not even based off any real traits of a typical suspected socialist.

            You only KNOW something when there is actual evidence, and you have NONE.

          • mattogilvie55

            Obamacare is all the evidence we need.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            That wasn’t a factor then and you know it. But don’t you mean ROMNEYcare?

            Just
            face it dude…you have no real basis for your hatred toward liberals
            other than just to hate them….and you can’t stand a black dude in the
            White House (you probably think that it’s call the “White” house for a
            reason, don’t you?). Admit it.

            And you probably hate me too, not just because I’m a liberal, but for the reasons that I’m a liberal…

            I have Japanese, Chinese, and Jewish Blood in addtion to Irish. I have a black cousin-in-law, my cousin is married to a Puerto Rican, and my sister is married to a Mexican. I don’t know why I admitted to that as it’s pointless, but I did. And these are the reasons I vote left, because I used to vote right and after getting to know some of those people, I experienced FIRSTHAND just how fond these people were of Jews, Blacks, Hispanics and Asians. I even identify as Christo-Buddhist…meaning spiritually, I believe in Jesus (not Republican/Conservative Jesus, clean shaven with a blonde crewcut and blue eyes thrusting his hand in the air screaming “Sieg Heil”, but the Jesus that had dark hair and brown skin that preached love, tolerance, fairness and equality and all the other little liberal things that you hate), but philosophically I am a Buddhist, that tries to seek enlightenment and live a harmonious life. The hardassed Christians literally dragged me to the altar, held me down and tried to exorcise me…these were all right-wingers that worshipped the ground Sean Hannity walks on.

            So I don’t care if Obama/Romneycare is all the “evidence” (which it is NOT) you need…that tells me that you are extremely judgemental, you are obsessed with being angry and look for things to be angry about and you’re not happy unless you are being a bigot.

            You are a sad little man and I genuinely feel sorry for you that your education never went past 3rd grade homeschooling. And I really hope that Bill O’Reilly, Hannity and Combes, Rush Limpdick and the gang don’t tell you to go jump off a cliff or a tall building because I really am afraid that you’d actually do it, and even if I think you are delusional and the poster child for the need for education, I don’t wanna see you die.

    • mattogilvie55

      It was fear of what he would do, being a socialist and all. We knew what was coming. Our fears have been more than justified.

      • HF

        Yup, Obama is totally a socialist. Totally.

        Dipshit.

        • mattogilvie55

          Yes, Obama is both.

          • NRafter530

            You should probably read more about socialism.

          • mattogilvie55

            at my age, I have probably forgotten more about socialism than others think they know. But I stand by what I said about Caesar Obammus. He is an America-hating socialist pure and simple.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Only cos he doesn’t parrot your horseshit dude.

          • mattogilvie55

            Don’t ever call me a liberal again, I’m far better than that.

          • HF

            Yeah, let’s see….the deficit is down 32%. Stocks are at record levels. New home sales are rising. Consumer confidence is at a 6-year-high. The massive, massive gap between the rich and the poor is still growing at the most alarming rates in the history of America.

            Obama is the WORST. SOCIALIST. EVER.

            Facts are important. Pay attention to them.

          • mattogilvie55

            I’m still waiting on you to actually post some. Nothing you just said is actually true.

          • HF

            Um. I did. FACT: The deficit is down 32%. FACT: Stocks are at record levels. FACT: New home sales are rising. FACT: Consumer confidence is at a 6-year high. FACT: The massive, massive gap between the rich and poor is still growing at the most alarming rate in the history of America.

            FACT: If Obama was even sort of a soclialist, none of these things would be happening.

          • mattogilvie55

            The deficit is not down. the only reason the Dow is up is because the Federal Reserve is pumping money into Wall Street, which is keeping stocks artificially inflated. In other words, it’s a false recovery. And consumer confidence is NOT up. The only thing you said that is correct is about the housing market, which was bound to recover sooner or later. What you failed to mention with that little tidbit is the fact that home prices have still not recovered from the slide 5 years ago.

          • HF
          • mattogilvie55

            Leftwing websites are not credible. If you can find something that was written by an actual human being, then we will talk.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Of course it isn’t true…right? After all, it’s only true if YOU or Fox News states it…I forget who actually said this but it’s true that “Most narrow-minded people see only two viewpoints: The wrong one, and their own.”

          • mattogilvie55

            Oh, so now you are calling me a liberal again.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Just HOW in the hell do you equate quoting wisdom to calling you a liberal??? First off, Liberals DO NOT listen to that hate-filled propagandist lie machine you call FOX NEWS…and secondly, how is enlightening you on how narrow-minded people like yourself see the world, calling you something you OBVIOUSLY are NOT?

          • mattogilvie55

            You liberals just listen to the hate-filled leftwing crap known as MSNBC, CurrentTV or Al Jazeera TV, whatever the hell it is called today. You have never heard anything hateful said on any of the FOX talk shows, not one. LIAR

          • Justin O’Reilly

            Oh, yes, and all those people that get the same information as any other
            news network, plus what other people have found out, can’t POSSIBLY be
            true in any way, now, could it??

            I don’t watch Al Jazeera, as
            they are religiously based and therefore not liberal, at least not
            completely…and I HAVE watched Faux Noise, and hateful speech is ALL I HEAR
            ON ALL THEIR PROGRAMS! Deal with it…LIAR.

          • mattogilvie55

            You are simply not telling the truth. You have never heard anything hateful from Hannity, O’Reilly, Greta, or anyone else on Fox. You are only calling them hateful because you do not agree with it. However, you constantly hear hateful rhetoric from the likes of Matthews, Olbermann, Maddow, Schultz, et. al.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            No, you are simply DENYING the truth…don’t tell me I never hear anything hateful from these assclowns. How many times have they shouted at their liberal debate guests to “SHUT UP!” while presenting their viewpoints??? You forget, troll, I used to be a conservative like you until I found out FIRSTHAND what they are really all about. And what cause would I have to lie about my findings? I stand to merit nothing from this. O’Reilly yells “SHUT UP!” at his guests EVERY 5 seconds they present their viewpoints. Rush Limpdick lost almost EVERY one of his sponsors because they were embarrassed to be associated with him for all the “non-hateful” things he says about minorities, LGBT people, people struggling with sobriety (while he himself is a shameless drug addict), and people living with serious diseases (remember what he said about Michael J. Fox? Parkinson’s Disease is one of the worst things you can ever have…it destroys the quality of life, and Rush had the UNMITIGATED GALL to make fun of him and other afflicted individuals), among anything and everything up to and including the poor (while he sits there smoking his $5000 cigars). There is NOTHING to admire about this man, or any of these people for that matter. Facts mean nothing to them, Sean Hannity was caught lying mid-broadcast on several occasions….And they also derived at least two of their most recent “news” stories
            from political satire without even FACT CHECKING. NOT GOOD JOURNALISM.
            Ann Ghoulter (admit it, she looks like a ghoul, I know that’s not nice but it’s true) and Bill O’Reilly have advocated for the deaths of several political opponents (like Michael Moore) simply over opposing viewpoints. Ann and Palin have even stereotyped minorities and called for the incarceration of “thugs” and “gang members” (terms they both used to overgeneralise racial minorities like Blacks and Hispanics). Yet they never say anything hateful…As a former conservative that has watched Fox News and hearing these people for myself, I’ve come to realise that they are every bit as hateful as that guy you see at a Tea Party rally wearing a white hood, or that other guy sitting at the other end of the rally waving a swastika flag, and anyone who can watch the same damn thing and not reach the same conclusion is either in complete DENIAL, STUPID, or DELUSIONAL.

            FOX even admits to lying, and claiming they are a propagandist organisation created for entertainment as opposed to being a real news organisation….however, you won’t hear any of that on FOX because they’ll lose most of their, *ahem*, more educated fan base.

            Oh…remember Glenn Beck? Mr. Guanobrain? He was fired for being too extreme for them. That’s pretty bad. But more than that, he put their already useless reputation at risk by actually saying what the rest of them actually think…his mistake was just not veiling it so that their viewers could be justified in their hatred.

            More and more people that work and have worked for Fox News are
            providing more and more evidence exposing their dishonest and extremely
            biased reporting.

            You gonna call them liars too?

            By the way, I have yet to hear Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, or Rachel Maddow advocate for the killing of their political opponents.

            Just admit it…the extreme far right is a lying, propaganda-spewing hate machine that wants America to return to a time when slavery was still an acceptable practice, or a time when minorities and religious dissidents were rounded up and placed into concentration camps.

            That’s not the America my poppa bled for, and it’s not the one I’ll protect…and I’ll bleed every last drop of blood to make sure that doesn’t happen…because if conservatives send any brownshirts after me (I’d be honoured to make their Nixon-styled “enemies list,” by the way), I’ll go down fighting, as is a samurai warrior’s destiny.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            By the way….give me a day or two and I’ll even provide facts and evidence to back the above statement too. And I’m even willing to take a LIE DETECTOR TEST.

          • mattogilvie55

            Everything you just said is a lie and you know it is a lie. That is all you liberals do, is lie. I will not admit to anything that simply is not true.

            And yes, I have heard Schultz, Olbermann, and Matthews advocate the death of conservatives…they have wished it many times. I don’t care if you haven’t; I have. Michael Moore has repeatedly advocated the deaths of conservatives. The worst thing you have ever heard out of Hannity’s mouth are the words extreme, radical, and leftwing. wow, so hateful and venomous. Limbaugh never made fun of Michael J Fox’s disease. He ridiculed him for trying to use his disease to lambast the government for “not spending more money on research.” Whether you agree with that or not is another subject, but that is what actually happened. Glenn Beck has never said anything hateful about anyone, as it is simply not in his nature. Ann Coulter says a lot of cutting things, but she is simply using the tactics of leftwingers on themselves, and they don’t like it. Cry me a river.

            Oh, and for the record, if anyone ever came after you, you would simply roll up in full fetal position and cry like the little baby you are, and I can prove it. I will give you my home address if you wish. I am still recovering from major cancer surgery, and have lost over 100 lb because of said surgery. As of right now, I’m a physical pushover. And you STILL don’t have the nerve to face me.

            And your daddy didn’t bleed for anything, except his own leftwing greed. Don’t hand us that crap. Your daddy is nothing more than a leftwing pile of crap just like you, and is unworthy of living in America, just like you. Don’t like what I said? Come get me, junior.

    I would vote for Dr. Ben Carson for President in a heartbeat. The author of this article thinks conservatives only see the surface of things? It’s nothing to do with the color of skin, but everything to do with the color of a person’s heart.

    • Perrofelix

      He does think that. And with good reason. How long did he have the Fox spotlight on him because he fooled people into thinking he was an average actual plumber?

      • bluejacket472

        I asked a question. You made a statement of fact. Did your magic 8 ball tell you what someone thinks?

        • Perrofelix

          From where I’m sitting the president IS a moderate Democrat. Okay, my statement of fact was actually an inference, where I was agreeing with you about the author’s probable belief that “conservatives only see the surface of things.” I went further to say that his experience as the famous “Joe the Plumber” would validate that belief system.

          • bluejacket472

            Not everyone is sitting where you are, however, your sweeping generalization of an entire class of people does announce the prejudice of where that chair is placed.

          • Perrofelix

            You can talk to Mattogilvie55 elsewhere in the comment thread about sweeping generalizations. And to the author of this article with his “when blacks had sanity ” statements.

          • bluejacket472

            Really? Amazing. It’s an admission of sorts. Unusual for a liberal. There’s a glimmer of hope.

            Admission?

          • bluejacket472

            : the act of admitting or allowing something

            : a statement or action by which someone admits a weakness, fault, etc.

            : the right or permission to enter a place.

    • JoeNCA

      Hey, how come you never see black conservatives with guns? I mean, they support the second amendment right? You should absolutely love to see black guys with guns, right? Because after all, you love guns and hate racism, so that would never be a problem, right????

    I really don’t care what color the president is. I do care about what he/she stands for. I’m tired of democrats trying to relive the “good old days” of the Soviet Union and I’m fed up with the republicans having as much backbone as a jelly fish. I want someone that is realistic and believes in fixing this country first and piss on the rest of the world’s problems. How can we help out other country’s when ours is out of order and in a shambles?

    Give me a president that will tell it how it is, no bullsh!t no song and dance routine.

    Give me a president that will tell industry and business to either bring jobs back to this country or face very stiff tariffs, and tell the EPA- you’re out of business, you’ve over regulated yourself out of existence. Inform business we’re not giving illegals citizenship so you can fire Americans and hire newly legalized Americans at lower pay.

    Give me a president that will hit the 5 o’clock news and inform those on “public assistance”- Be at the welfare office at 06 tomorrow morning for community service or job re-training or you won’t receiving a check. 100% participation is required, not an option.

    Give me a president that will audit all federal government agencies and determine if we really need them. Are the agencies a help or a hindrance to the public? Do they provide a product that benefits the public, business and industry?

    Give me a president that will tell the national education association- Quit re-writing history, teach the three R’s and do your jobs or look for new ones. By the way, the federal department of education- you’re fired, education is a state matter. To the IRS- audit higher education institutions and start revoking tax incentives and exemptions that colleges and universities enjoy. Either they’re in it for knowledge and building the country’s future professionals or they’re in it for the money, not both. Want to be a business disguised as higher education institution? Then you can pay the taxes a business would pay. No more free grants or scholarships or student loans. Free lunches are over, do something to earn it. Military service is a good start, peace corp doesn’t count.

    Give me a president that will tell the country’s financial institutions- no more bailouts. You break it, you fix it. You break the law or steal from your investors and depositors-you’re be going to a hard labor camp, not motel prison.

    The list is long but those are my top requirements.

We pay the taxes that pay their pay checks, so they work for US. If congress would get off their dead a55es and do what we’re paying them to do, we would not be having this conversation, would we?

    Remember a mother’s gene’s/dna is dominate in a child, therefore Obama is more white than black. By black people’s standards he is known as a malotto. The color of a man does not control how and what he knows or can do as a president. Obama just does not know how or have the knowledge to solve America’s problems. Let us move beyond this racial thing and put someone in that can repair and bring back this great Republic. Color does not matter. It is the man, not their skin color.

    • John Angst

      With this obstructionist Congress we’ve had, “knowing how to fix” or “having the knowledge to fix” ideas are completely irrelevant.

      NOBODY sitting in the Oval Office would be able to get anything done when the majority opposition even admits their “Primary mission is to make Obama a one-term President”.

  • simpletony1

    Bull crap. We should abolish the democrat party, and probably the republican party too. But the democrat party is the absolutely worst group of people in the history of the world and have succeeded in taking down our country so far, and it may NOT be recoverable anyway.

    Screw your stupid “white man” concept because the democrats screwed our country, with their most evil contingent ‘putting’ obama into office against the objections of rational americans by lying, cheating and stealing. Democrat frontrunners are among the most inept, ignorant, idiotic, evil and flatly stupid people on earth.

    Two of the best contenders for office are ‘black’, not half breeds with a criminal scumbag following. obama is not black anyway, he’s just a muslim half-greed with a white trash mother

          • booboodevo

            Simple isn’t always the best. Sometimes problems are complicated, and finding the best solution doesn’t include “HURR DURR LETS DO THE MOST SIMPLEST THING NURRRRR,” at least not if you want to solve the problem.

            Simple solutions are good for children and idiots. I am not surprised that your first solution is “simple is best!”

            If solutions to our current problems were all so “simple” they’d be solved by now. There are no simple solutions. “I’m hungy, so I’ll eat a bag of Funyons” is a simple solution but not the best. “Let’s just bomb some country, any country because I’m angry that terrorists hit the WTC” is another example. How about “I don’t like some things that are taught to my kid, like evolution theory so we should just abolish the department of education.” How about, “I think gas prices are too high so we need to make as much fossil fuel available as possible so my commute is cheaper?” Simple solution – drill baby drill and further deregulate the oil industry. No need to complicate that by worrying about people who have flames coming out of their faucets from fracking, a decimated tourism industry in the gulf coast, your taxes going to help clean up superfund sites and oils spills and underground coal fires, etc., cuz gee, it’s the simple solutions that all work!

Okay, Nazis, Stalinists, rampaging Mongol hordes, Transatlantic slave traders, Japanese POW experimenters, genocidal conquistadors and brutal raping and pillaging warlords throughout human history – move over, because the Democrats are the WORST GROUP OF PEOPLE EVER. Playing “catch the baby on the bayonet” is small potatoes compared to trying to provide poor people with health care, folks, you heard it here first.

      • simpletony1

        I am way, way on your side

      • oldgoatee

        Don’t know about rampaging Mongol hordes or conquistadors, but Democrats supported or attempted to appease most of the others in your list…

    • John Angst

      Sorry Tony but the country was already a wreck before Obama was even elected.

      I actually even remember EVEN FOX News people saying “With this disaster of an economy I don’t think *ANYONE* really *wants* to be President”…. And that was shortly before the election even happened…

      SO at one point even GW fans knew the country was in a disaster. They just have problems recalling that today..

      • simpletony1

        Yes, and I too am a master of the obvious. I often talk about the country being in the shitter for decades, but obama is the coups de gras

        That’s not how it works, idjit. “He did it too!” is not a defense against tax evasion.

          what did you say twit ??

          • swan ronson

            Keep throwing out phrases like “that kenyan boy” to prove wise old Joe’s point about how non-racist everyone is when criticizing the President. You’re doing a great job of proving his point.

          • Perrofelix

            Well, it’s the president’s fault he’s divisive because he’s half-black. If he was just white, then no one would be calling him “that kenyan boy”. So I guess Kent2012 just proved Joe the non-plumber right Well, sort of. lol.

          • Kent2012

            how about african pretender or Benghazi bungler. guess what studly, when a clown like this communist does his best to stir up racial discontent and continues to demonstrate his efforts to ruin the economy and takes the time to bow to every tin pot dictator around the globe there is no need for racial slurs, he is a communist scum sucking pig…..color, no concern

          • redhand32

            Kent2012 is a prime example of someone who only emerges from his Fox “news” bunker to buy this week’s lottery tickets. Can’t you people say anything but regurgitated phrases and Tea Bag talking points. If you remove the words “commie” “socialist” “liberal” “Benghazi,”– mostly on some misspelled sign, you would be tongue tied. It betrays your painful arrogant ignorance, total lack of formal and informal; education. You attempt to talk about “the economy.” But, face it “Kent2012″ you don’t have the slightest inkling of basic Economics 101, –nor a basic academic grasp of American History, the Constitution (which also involves some of the basic case law interpretation). You people simply majored in football in maybe high school. You feel that your “gut check” reality trumps facts and analysis using actual knowledge. It doesn’t. You’re stupid. Read some books, credible mags, come out of the bunker.

          • Kent2012

            and you clown could not find your a$$ with both hands and a flashlight without your messiah holding your hand…

            No comment. Your puerile response tells any intelligent reader what he/she needs to know about your painful intellectual shortcomings.

          • JoethePlummerisaBigot

            Jesus was a socialist.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            No, you do not love Jesus…remember, you hate Jews (I think)? Jesus was Jewish…from the Middle East and had brown (not white) skin and brown eyes and dark hair. People that look like this are who you would most likely shoot as “Muslims” and “Terrorists.”

          • JoethePlummerisaBigot

            I don’t.

          • Kent2012

            he is super, know why ? he uses common sense and has a real understanding of economics…..unlike the communists that are attempting to turn this great country into another communist cesspool………

          • johnny_o

            I just don’t understand why people have to exaggerate. When I hear gross exaggerations, whether from Sen Reid or Sen McDonnell, it really turns me off and I can’t give serious consideration to what is said. You fall into this category Kent.

          • Kent2012

            I guess that is your loss…..It is unfortunate that many can not see what the african pretender and his administration is attempting to do to the USA. We do not need any Euro style socialism/communism, nor do we need a clown as the chief executive of the Great USA cruising around the world bowing and scraping to every towel head and tin pot dictator and adding insult to injury by returning to the country of his real birth and throwing more tax payer money around to his buddies and family….

          • JessicaSideways

            Which is why we didn’t vote for a clown in 2008. :)

          • Kent2012

            that is right and he lost and now we have the emperor of kenyan on the throne and then he was put back on the throne through voter fraud and and twits that stayed at home because Rand Paul was not on the ballot….and now even those worthless government union pukes do not want the african pretenders health care baloney, only the welfare rats and the pseudo intellectuals, who will be trying to elect the lezzy next time…..

          • JessicaSideways

            What Kenyan? All US presidents must be natural born and the evidence has been presented that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. Additionally, that fake Kenyan birth certificate that makes it’s ways across the right wing ignorance sphere has been thoroughly debunked.

            http://health.hawaii.gov/vitalrecords/faq-obama/
            http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/kenyacert.asp

            What voter fraud? I mean, there was huge evidence of voter fraud back in 2000 and 2004 to favour Dubya, the cheerleader, but I bet you don’t get all up in a tizzy about that, now do you?

            What “lezzy”? I wish there would be an LGBT president but I think there is too much hate in this country (as you have exhibited) to make it possible for a lesbian candidate to win.

          • Kent2012

            can not be natural born candidate with a fat islamy darkie as your daddy…oh and the gay thing, kenyan boy and the ho support that perversion too. so it looks as though you got your money’s worth…keep on voting communist…

          • JessicaSideways

            So, it’s all about race. Glad you cleared that up. :) And for the record, my father is a white fundamentalist Christian from Texas.

            Being gay is not a “perversion”, it is simply a trait. And could you, at least once, tell me who the hell you are talking about when you say “Kenyan boy”?

            Thirdly, you do realise that the Communist party isn’t an actual political party in the US and that “voting communist” would be impossible, right? Unlike Canada, where there are TWO communist parties that don’t put anyone into Parliament. As Canadian-born Ted Cruz about that one. ;)

          • Kent2012

            some good points, let us see now….yes while in court on bank robbery charges, the defendant can suggest “that thievery is not a perversion, it is a forced life style”, and rape is not a perversion, it is a “natural outlet for the continuation of the species”……

          • JessicaSideways

            Those are not even remotely relevant and here is why.

            Thievery is a choice because, unlike being gay, no one has to steal but they choose to steal.
            Rape is a perversion because it hurts the people it affects and is completely a choice.

            Being gay:
            1) does not hurt anybody and
            2) is an inborn trait rather than a behavioural choice.

            Your argument is stupid.

          • Kent2012

            you should have, he is a Real American, instead you voted for the communist from africa…..your indoctrination in school has been successful…

          • JessicaSideways

            Well, first, Barack Obama isn’t a communist and if he did identify as a communist, his policy decisions aren’t communistic.

            Secondly, Hawaii is not part of Africa, it is part of the US. I am so sorry that you are too ignorant to realise this.

            Thirdly, McCain WAS born in Panama, so if you wanted to vote for the Manchurian Candidate, McCain would have been it instead of US-born Obama. Trying to hold on to that birther nonsense in the face of all the evidence to the contrary is just craziness.

            It seems like your indoctrination has been successful because you believe in so many obvious lies.

          • Kent2012

            well upside down, there is no proof that kenyan boy was born in Hawaii, but he may have been born in one of the other 57 states, doubt that though….no reason to be born in the US and then go to islamy towel head school in indonesia and later to enroll and columbia university as a “foreign student”. Oh and mcshame mommy and daddy were both real Americans, not a fat islamy darkie and a $lut. and in his own words in his book, ghost written by an avowed communist terrorist, billy “the bomber” ayers, the african pretender states that he had no real friends and he gravitated to the communists…not to mention that his step daddy “diddle davis” was a full blown commie and his ho mammy’s folks (that is kenyan boy’s granny and grampa) were self proclaimed communists…but you be sure not to let these “facts” alter your fantasy of what this piece of manure from kenya really is…….by the way you did vote for a clown in 08 and 12. He also the ringmaster of the current circus in DC, leading the demoRATS in the trashing of America…….

          • JessicaSideways

            Well, I don’t know what Kenyan boy you are talking about but the Hawaii Department of Vital Records affirms that Obama did post his HAWAIIAN birth certificate online because of racist conspiracy theorists such as yourself. I think that people like you who refuse to accept the facts show the ‘birther’ movement for what it is: racism cloaked.

            And last I checked, there are 50 states, so the statement should have been “the other 49 states”.

            “Islamy towel head school” and “fat islamy darkie”. Yeah, you are just the face of tolerance, you are. You’re not racist at all. Riiiight.

            Never mind the fact that you voted for Canadian-born Ted Cruz, which was raised and born around socialists, unlike Barack Obama who was born in the United States.

            And no, I told you before, I didn’t vote for McCain nor Romney in ’08 and ’12. And it is the Republicans who are trashing America, not the Democrats. They don’t have respect for the US’ laws nor the legal process, nor the republic, nor checks and balances, nor the constitution.

          • Kent2012

            and you are full of it, kenyan boy made the comment about 57 states, mister brilliance…but you keep your head firmly planted in your backside and do not bother to read your messiah’s own words…well the bomber wrote them for him, you know that royalty can not be bothered with the mundane…and the Hawai document, it is up for speculation as to who created that and when….oh and the world will be better off with out all the isalmy diaper heads and the idiot communist twit$…..

          • JessicaSideways

            Who the hell is “kenyan boy”? You keep refusing to answer that question because we know that Obama wasn’t born in Kenya, any person with half a brain knows that.

            I don’t have a messiah, my religion doesn’t have that kind of paradigm. :)

            Well, I can tell you who created the Hawaii document. Alright, are you ready?

            The Hawaii Department of Health. Mind blowing, I know. And, you can go to Hawaii to confirm this fact. :)

            “The world will be better off with out all the isalmy [sic] diaper heads and the idiot communist twit$ [sic]”

            I am more into challenging false beliefs that the extermination of people personally. I believe in trying to wipe all of the Judeo-Christian belief systems off the map with education and facts.

          • Kent2012

            another islamy diaper head…..

          • JessicaSideways

            Never mind the fact that I hate Islam for similar reasons that I hate Christianity. It is an ignorant religion that promotes hatred, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, slavery, rape and ignorance. To name a few things.

            But by all means, go ahead. Show your ignorance. Call me “islamy”. Go ahead, do it.

            What drugs have you been on when writing that obviously false statement?

            Ted Cruz doesn’t use common sense, he uses bullying and gerrymandering, holding this country hostage in order to get what he wants. If you believe that he has a real understanding of economics, then he knows what he is doing to the country and he is a financial domestic terrorist.

            As for the communists, I wouldn’t call Republicans communists but I do agree that they are trying to turn this country into a cesspool and the evidence backs that up.

          • Kent2012

            have you been sucking some of that kenyan boy candy ??

          • JessicaSideways

            You didn’t answer my question. In what world did Ted Cruz use ANY sense in any of his decision making?

            Is that all you can do, respond with ad hominem attacks?

          • Kent2012

            yes as with most Real Americans he believes in capitalism and the free market with the appropriate regulation, he does not believe in communism which is as much of kenyan boy’s background as his islamy schooling in Indonesia and his wonderful friendships with the likes of the scum scuking pig billy “the bomber” aires………

          • JessicaSideways

            But Canadian-born Ted Cruz doesn’t believe in democracy, checks and balances nor the free market. Canadian-born Ted Cruz was born in a socialist country, unlike Barack Obama who was born in the insanely capitalistic United States.

            Who is this Kenyan boy you speak of? It can’t be Obama since I just crushed that nonsensical idea several comments ago. Additionally, Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim so he can’t be the person you speak of.

            You know what, it would be interesting to have a non-Christian president for a change. Christianity is just as insane as any other religion. :)

            First, if you don’t want to look like a racist, quit referring to the President as Kenyan boy. You’re just helping to make the case that the Tea Party is full of nothing but racist slobs. Second, calling Obama’s policies Communist, just proves you don’t know anything about Communism. Third, this whole “taxed enough already” movement the Tea Party is all about is stupid. As the tax levels have been dropping on the top one percent, the entire middle class is being squeezed to being nearly out of existence. Further, the “written by a black man article” that proves Obama is bad for blacks in America is full of repeatedly flawed logic and misleading numbers. And, let’s see, you wanted an example of the stupidity of the the Tea Party? How about the fact they keep voting to shoot themselves in the foot? They are so busy worrying about the gays getting married or taxes being raised to pre-Clinton rates that the vote for politicians who in turn vote against policies that help the American worker. Take for example the vote against overtime. Talk about harming your citizens! I have more examples, but I need to go to work.

          • spencer1952

            You people (the tea party idiots) always seem to think that if anyone does not adhere to your warped ideologies they must be communist. America will no longer tolerate racist factions with your anti-government buffoonery anymore. Haven’t you noticed that President Obama has always defeated you clowns and all your manufactured crisis? Give up stupid!!!

          • Jeffrey Robinson

            Did you insult someone, Kent?

            I thought that took intelligence to do so. Pretty sure you aren’t capable of insulting. Bigotry and hate, like a blind rat, yes, but insulting – that takes wit, and you’re pretty bankrupt in that department.

            No go on and put your white pointy hat on, burn a cross, but please be home int time to suck on your mom’s dried mammies, cuz she misses you, Kent…

          • vlodko62

            Make sure you line that pointy hat with tin foil Kent, or Obama’s minions will start up the mind-control machine.

          • Kent2012

            I doubt that there will be any cross burning, but we hope to take down some idiots….like the trolls that support kenyan boy. Your comment is in relation to what? Karl would be proud of you and the rest of the parasite crowd that think others should keep you fed and housed, oh and a free phone and bus pass…

          • spencer1952

            Be careful Kent, if you start taking down idiots there won’t be many tea party members left and what in the world would happen to Sarah Palin the queen of idiots?

          • Kent2012

            she would have a chance at the presidential race instead of the lesbian communist that is supposed to be married to billy “the traitor”

          • spencer1952

            C’mon Kent, you could not possibly be that big of an idiot to actually believe the woman who once said, “Folks, this government isn’t too big to fail, it’s too big to succeed” should or could be elected POTUS. Get your tea party head out of you tea party ass!!!

          • James Youngblood

            yeah because teathuglican is so original

          • spencer1952

            The Tea Party has been involved in too way many idiotic and stupid escapades to count. However, they are necessary because they will be instrumental in helping Hillary Clinton get elected in 2016.

          • James Youngblood

            name them.

          • spencer1952

            Well you definitely represent the crazed mentality of the Tea Party, and I hope that the authorities will be able to track you down because you sound like a classic psychopath to me.

          • spencer1952

            Can the rest of you people see what kind of person you are siding with? Here we have a person who has threatened the life of the president and a former secretary of state which is a blatant federal crime.

          • Kent2012

            yes they have, doing their best to get candidates elected that believe in fiscal sanity, instead of more entitlement programs to give more Real American’s money to parasites (domestic and international). Not only that these candidates are supposed to follow the constitutional guidelines instead of doing things such as trashing secured creditors and stealing a company(GM) and in essence giving it to the unions for having voted the thief into office….

          • spencer1952

            Kent, all one has to do at this moment is to carefully observe what is taking place in Virginia today. The tea party’s Cuccinelli is well on his way to defeat, the relatively unknown Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, is just about to tear him a new one. Why? Because of Cuccinelli’s utter hatred for American women, and the recent Republican initiated and totally unnecessary government shutdown. Kent, look into the political crystal ball a little closer because this the tea party’s future. You “Real Americans” might as well move to Jonestown, Guyana because you will never get your way here in America and this I can assure you.

          • Kent2012

          I suppose his in article citation confused you immensely. This article is “Posted by Joe Wurzelbacher on Oct 10, 2013 in Uncategorized”. Did you miss that part before you opened your “INCREDIBLY STUPID MOUTHS AND TRY ACTUALLY READING the ARTICLE”? I would call you a joke, but your lack of brain power is immensely depressing!

            This is very sad, very sad indeed. Must send healing to people who write such propaganda

            btw, The homeless population, that we never had before, exploded during the Regan years and continues to grow today as his ‘trickle down’ policies have been followed for 30 years now. President Obama is a Miracle Worker who has surmounted many obstacles from the Right extremists. He has had an impossible job in cleaning up the mess made by his Republican predecessors. History books will note this one day.

          • MMinCC

            A miracle worker??? HAHAHAHA Yamean like making 20 MILLION new people appearing on the food stamp rolls or the lowest labor participation rate in almost 60 years or 7 TRILLION in new operating deficits or 7 out of 8 new jobs are part time or throwing MILLIONS of people out off the health care plans they were happy with…oh yeah baby, he’s a “miracle worker” all right

            he is their “messiah”, next they will tell us that he can change the desert to freshwater lakes and the rocks in Icrapastan into loaves of bread, wheat bread of course, can not have any of the white stuff…..

          It’s funny that people with about a high school education and possibly the reading level of an 8th grader that listen to “fox news” think that they are experts on political life. Fox news is considered journalism smut at best. I wouldn’t even consider ‘this” journalism; this “MERICA”…I left out the A on purpose, is a racists rants and raves. Sadly enough, this person represents the “MOB”, which is republican majorities movements. I did not say thinking or thought process because that would elect a higher form of intelligence. So @joeplumber, be a good boi and do what your “master” tells you to do. The consistent ignorance without knowing historical facts is a consistent past-time of the post-civil rights republican party and fox news viewers as a whole.

        The flame is flickering. . . . Most Americans realize that white supremacy is gasping its last breath of legitimacy. So sad for you and your kind, extinction is an absolute.

        • Joe Dokes

          I am not a white supremacist of any stripe. I loathe and detest anyone who judges by skin color rather than content of character. I await with great eagerness the demise of all racial supremacy, whoever holds to it.

          The point of my comment was that everything Obama was sold as – namely, the Great Racial Uniter – turns out to have been a carefully crafted lie. In fact, he has deliberately taken American BACKWARDS in terms of race relations. Many of us suspected it would turn out thus, and so it has.

          • Imhotep40

          • jancc

            In the first place, the president never touted himself as a uniter of black and whites. Others ascribed that to him. In the second place you failed to show any evidence that he has taken us back in race relations.

            Ahhh, take your head out of the sand and your nose out of Ed’s asscra*k-if you think race relations haven’t deteriorated in the past 5 years, dude, you’re nuts

          • Armando Wilson

            I’d argue that they never were great, they were just masked as being fixed. No offense, but most white people never experience racial tensions due to them commonly being the majority. It’s just not that

          • MMinCC

            I don’t agree-over the course of the last 40 years I’ve seen racial tensions and groundless recriminations grow and grow where previously there was none. Black friends I’ve had for many years are now buying into the victimization mantra that Sharpton and the NAACP are preaching.

            What things like the Zimmerman trial, the knock out game, scores and scores of blacks attacking whites for no other reason than skin color…etc have done is alienate truly nonprejudicial people.

            When 6th and 7th generation welfare families believe their plight is due to racism, Houston, we’ve got a problem.

          • Armando Wilson

            Saying that it never existed in the past forty years is false. Saying that your black friends are suddenly buying into the victimization mantra also shows the inaccuracy of your ways. Your friends likely never changed their views, you’re just more aware of them now because you perceive race relations to be worse (and not to your favor/liking). With all due respect, you sound like many of my white friends who like me when I agree with them, however take offense and are shocked when I disagree with them.

          • MMinCC

            In the early 70s I used to go to City Park in Denver at all hours and play 1 Wall with blacks, whites. Mexicans, you name it-made a lot of friends there too. I quit going there in the mid 90s when bangers were using park goers for target practice and now I wouldn’t be caught dead there and wouldn’t ever consider driving through at night.

            Now it sure as hell isn’t white people throwing rocks at passing cars. It isn’t white people playing the knock out game or beating 88 year old veterans to death for kicks or assaulting random white people on the 16th St Mall, is it?

            I can say that not one of the many many conservative friends I have wishes anything but the best for ANYONE who works and accepts personal responsibility for their actions. Nor would any of them exclude anyone qualified for anything based on the color of their skin.

            It’s a million miles from the current mindset of blacks. If more than 5% think they will get an even shake, you can knock me over with a feather. The success of racial pimps like Sharpton to make blacks feel as though they are being held back is undeniable. 40 years ago, my black friends might have felt they needed to work even harder than whites, but they believed they could do anything they put their minds to.

            Now? No way-much easier to blame someone else for your shortfall, sit abck and collect today’s version of reparations. How’s that working for the black community anyway? In the 60s, blacks had a higher marriage rate than whites, now thanks to the destructive policies of REgressives, their illegitimacy rate is near 80%!!

            And take your “with all due respect” and shove it”

          • JessicaSideways

            You do realise that the idea of legitimacy of children is a holdover from a shame-based culture that tries to assert that there is something wrong with sex and works hard to withhold accurate, fact-based sex education, right?

          • MMinCC

            You do realize that children, especially males, born without a father in the home are far more likely to have a lot of really bad things happen to them in their lives don’t you? Like gangs, drugs, violence, prison….

            Maybe that shame based culture where children grew up in 2 parent families wasn’t so bad after all. BTW that term, “shame based” sounds like some gender studies crap-I prefer “moral culture”

            Further if you think it’s appropriate to be teaching 6, 7, or 8 year old children “sex education” then you’re crazy lady. Look around, that’s certainly been the case for quite a few years now and if you can’t see the sewer culture it’s brought on, then there’s nothing I can add.

          • JessicaSideways

            Do you have any evidence for your no fathers = bad things idea? It has been proven that children of lesbian couples tend to do better than their peers. (Evidence: http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1994480,00.html )

            But a sex shaming culture is not a moral culture. Denigrating an entire field of study because it doesn’t agree with your views. That speaks volumes to your intellectual honesty, not. There’s a book you should read “The Way We Never Were”.

            I think the sewer culture is brought on by sociopaths (i.e. conservatives) that teach that it is somehow wrong to care about your fellow man.

          • MMinCC

            Pitiful but you’re perfect example of what happens when you take God out of a culture as you REgressives have been hell bent to do for the past 100 years.

            You might want to take your nose out of books(?) that do nothing more than twist facts to affirm your sick and degenerate life view. Your harping on a “shame culture” speaks volumes about your moral depravity.

            Conservatives who believe in a one man one woman family environment to raise children has worked pretty well for 1,000s of years are sociopaths? We believe in fiscal sanity, less government and traditional values and we’re the ones that are sick? HAHAHAHAHA

            If you want to call gender studies a viable field of study, let’s see how far that garbage would take you in a culture not suffering the nightmare of REgressivism.

          • JessicaSideways

            Your argument is invalid because you can’t take “god” out of anything since there is no god. Next thing, you’ll be getting mad at progressives for taking unicorns out of the culture and blaming bad things about that. What it is, though, is we are advocating against cramming religion down people’s throats and subsidizing it with tax dollars.

            I think of religion as a pen!s. You’re totally free to have one. You’re totally free to love it. What you’re NOT free to do is to whip it out in public nor cram it down children’s throats.

            You are the one who is a republican, you can’t call my worldview sick and twisted when your world view glorifies sociopathic attitudes. You are the one trying to defend a shame culture when the evidence shows that it doesn’t work.

            The one man/one woman family environment doesn’t always work though. For whatever reason, some people aren’t meant to be together. Or they are gay. Or they are widowed. You get the idea. Just because any of these are the case, it doesn’t make the family impacted somehow immoral. A father is not a given, nor a guarantee, nor required – as the evidence shows. It is trying to denigrate single parents, gay couples and sex outside of marriage that makes conservatives sociopaths.

            Oh, do you mean a regressive country that aligns with your political ideals, like Iran? Places where women have no voice because of religiously inspired misogyny. Yeah, those places are nightmares and it is my job to make sure you sociopaths don’t turn us into Iran or another he!lh0le where people aren’t free.

          • Justin O’Reilly

            I know…it’s soooo terrible…People actually becoming self-aware and smart…becoming educated and liberated…casting off the chains of religious servitude…and the worst of it…discovering the TRUE mysteries of the universe and becoming enlightened…terrible thing that….what are we thinking by taking God out of a culture He never belonged to in the first place, and to add insult to injury, daring to actually THINK for OURSELVES???? The SHAME!!! The HORROR!!!! The SIN OF IT ALL!!! Please, mein fuehrer pastor! GIMME MY JESUS CHAINS BACK!!!! BURN ME AT THE STAKE FOR DARING TO NOT BE A SLAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Please try to understand that to completely rely on religious pressure compounded by fictions and mythology will only ENSURE mutual self-destruction…we need to try a little less hard to “find God” by torturing and enslaving ourselves as well as others around us and focus more on living life to the fullest and being what we really are…which is HUMAN.

          • dratman

            JessicaSideways, I strongly agree. I would also like to point out that before reliable, convenient, woman-controlled birth control became readily available, “shame-based” sexual politics was the only game in town, because of the likelihood of pregnancy.

            The practical problem was that a young woman with a baby but without a husband was likely to need long-term support from her family of origin — which the family typically could not afford and/or did not want to provide.

            I am saying that women used to be discriminated against simply because it has always been the woman who becomes pregnant. Let us hope that old, dead age is on its way out the door in a hurry. Since Republicans want to bring it back, they should be kicked out of government forthwith.

          • JessicaSideways

            Agreed. There are sites like Embabyment that talk about forced adoption that was encouraged by the establishment and still is. This has been going on for decades.

            I also want to add that the idea of legitimacy is an awful idea because it shouldn’t matter whether a child is born without a father, or to gay parents, etc. What should matter is that a child is raised in a loving, supportive environment.

            That is what my point was before that previous jerk took my “shame-based” culture comment to a different topic.

          • Perrofelix

            Oh yes, a coordinated right-wing racist attack campaign against the president is the president’s fault. I think you just feel that Barack Obama just “didn’t know his place” in the Tea Party order of things. If he “wouldn’t a got so uppity” and ran for president, none of this would have happened.

          • IrishYank2

            I don’t see a regression in race relations either. If anything, it’s just increased racism coming from the white right.

          • eloy

            you sound really smart with them there colorful words, loath, flame- i think someone is in love with Joe.

          • johnsawyer

            Obama has no way of getting racists to not be racists. His mere existence in the White House can’t do that, and he never made any claims that this would happen, or that it was even possible. People are responsible for their own reactions to things, including how they feel about people of other skin colors. Obama hasn’t called for black opposition to whites, nor has he implied this, no matter what you think you’ve heard.

          • c-bass

            since you also “suspected” the downfall of the dow jones, i’ll bet you hate that it is booming too.

          • Josh Williams

            You couldn’t be more wrong. Obama has simply been himself. It is the Tea Party, the crazies, the extremists, who have lashed out at literally every small thing he has tried to do as “communism” and “socialism” and crying about his birth certificate. The racism on the right is actually palpable–you can just feel them seething with hatred for the man. And that is somehow supposed to be his fault. You people are completely delusional. He’s black and he was born in the U.S.–get over it.

          • tangxia

            So what’s your evidence that people hate Obama because he’s black, and not because he’s you know, lefty scum?

          • ekdikeo

            Of course you will find that which you seek, and if you don’t find it, you’ll make it up, and say you found it.

          • JoethePlummerisaBigot

            That is garbage. The truth is, the election of a black man as President has so unnerved the racists in this country, that it has brought them out from under their rocks.

            And they all deny that they are racist. Don’t they, Joe?

          • lee bell

            Obama did not set us back in race relations. That black man and woman in that White House brought the racism out of the closet!

        • Joe Dokes

          I am not a white supremacist of any stripe. I loathe and detest anyone who judges by skin color rather than content of character. I await with great eagerness the demise of all racial supremacy, whoever holds to it.

          The point of my comment was that everything Obama was sold as – namely, the Great Racial Uniter – turns out to have been a carefully crafted lie. In fact, he has deliberately taken American BACKWARDS in terms of race relations. Many of us suspected it would turn out thus, and so it has.

          If Thomas Sowell ran for President, he’d have my vote.

          • http://cantercast.net/ Lou G

            No, what set us backwards is the teahadists claiming he was born in Kenya and that he was a Muslim and then comparing him to Hitler.

          • Carabella1

            Lest you forget, the week after Obama was inaugurated in January of 2009, the race baiting began in earnest. It’s you people who decided the black man in the White House was abhorrent. You own your racism whether you believe you are or not.

          • Imhotep40

            When did our POTUS claim to be the arbiter of race relations? What promise outside of being president to all Americans irrespective of race did he fail to keep?

            It’s quite sad that you blame a bi-racial man for racial disharmony, the very opposite of what he physically represents. The only ones who have an affinity for race relations from a backwards era are conservatives and racist projecting their racism on our President.

          • dmengdon

            My question to you is how has he been the president to all Americans while giving one of his many speeches he proclaims Republicans are the enemy?
            Republicans aren’t the enemy and neither are the Democrats. Were all Americans
            with vastly different ideas on how this country should be run. Enemies
            not.

          • Imhotep40

            How else would you characterize the obstructionist behavior of the GOTP caucus as it relates to the economy, health care reform, gun violence, voter purging, jerry meandered congressional districts for a full-proof majority in the US House, when the POTUS won the popular vote by such a large margin?

            Pease, stop with the juvenile talking points of criticism about the current administration, it’s just irrational and sad. . . . .

          • Imhotep40

            The idea that you characterize the president’s speech giving ability, respective to his partisanship is intellectually and politically disengenuious. This discussion of this article centers on his race and the race bias of Tea Party affiliates, which you are now attempting to bait and switch to that of political policy and ideology.

            Republican and Tea Party agendas are destroying our Republic, they are a well funded political minority and fringe group that is attempting to thwart to will of the People and the mandate given to a 2nd-term Executive.

            It is one thing to disagree on political ideology on running a country, it’s another thing entirely to damage our economy and punish the majority because they disagree with the minority’s political ideal. . . . vastly different indeed, and yes, the very definition destructive and anti-American policies that can be couched as “enemy” personified.

          • Imhotep40

            dmengdon, your question is intellectually disengenuious and transparent in its contempt for the President’s oratory skills. Proclaiming that “Republicans are the enemy”, I don’t believe has ever been uttered by the POTUS; perhaps more correctly, it was phrased that the political optics, agenda and voting record of the GOTP caucus in Congress is contrary to the growth and prosperity of America and by default, Americans. Stifling growth, voting against expanded background checks for firearms, voting repeatedly to repeal Health Care Reform law, etc, etc. can be construed as policies that are tactically in opposition to or perceived as an “enemy” of the American People’s well-being.

          • ken pifer

            Very true. Most of our politicians are corrupt and self serving. Americans have become complacent over the years and have allowed an atmosphere to foster that let the liberal take control of our government and put a tyrant into power. Most of our government needs to be removed and replaced with real American patriots, if there are any left.

          • IrishYank2

            First off, if you think liberals aren’t “patriots”, then you’re less of a partiot than they are. I’m tired of this “patriot” sound bite. Really tired of it. It’s like you think you know how to be an American better than your political opponents. It only makes you foolish. Secondly, tyrants such as GW Bush were in power long before the “liberals” took control. Did you completely sleep through 2000-2008? Did you not see what happened? Two worthless wars, illegal wiretapping, torture, massive corp failures, (Enron), massive govt response failures (Katrina), energy policy decided by big oil, the list goes on. And last I checked he gave us a tax break, invaded a country, gave us another tax break, invaded another country, then never even bothered to find a way to pay for either war. GW did a TON of damage to this country, but I can’t really lay the blame on him as he didn’t ultimately make those decisions. So if you actually think Obama is the only tyrant in that mix, then you must have literally erased your memory up until 2008.

          • sgillen1036

          • Kent2012

            well just what do you want to have defined? I do not use the term “liberal” or liberalism…

          • Justin O’Reilly

            You don’t use those two words because you don’t actually know what they mean…and probably because it
            involves a modicum of truth and doesn’t rely on scary terminology….

            I
            didn’t ask you to use either of these terms or define them…I asked
            you to define “communism,” and the only reason I included the definition
            for “liberalism” is to help you comprehend just how far apart these two
            systems actually are…not that I really EXPECT you to ACTUALLY
            COMPREHEND this.

          • Kent2012

            then try to ask a question without answering an unasked question. Communism is a failed experiment that involves the instigation of a revolution, the destruction of a sitting government (or the extermination of a sitting monarchy), then the theft of any privately owned businesses and their assets, the destruction of any textual(digital now) references to history and other related information with regards to societal governance methods at odds with communism, the extermination of any intellectuals that are deemed capable of threatening the formation of the “new people’s government), and lastly, the continued efforts to eradicate any neighbors who believe in different forms of government….

          • IrishYank2

            Since we’re misusing labels, from now on you’re a pedophile in my books. Not that you’re doing anything that a pedophile does, just applying your logic toward the use of the word communist. So don’t wory, pedo-man, you like to molest little children because you’re conservative and there have to be conservatives that are also pedophiles, therefore you are alos a pedohpile, you pedophile. BENGHAZI!

            This article wasn’t written by “Joe” . Joe is just trying to cash in on his notoriety. Which is paltry at best. Good for him.. As far as that scumbag author Blaqsphere. He is just a sensationalist. A Black Hannity or Limbaugh. But Joe is also using a Black mans words to justify his own personal feelings. Obama gets plenty of criticism and disrespect. More than I have ever seen for a sitting President. Mostly undeserving. I recently saw the Obama Werzulbacher interaction again. Socialist please..

            The decline in the economy happened under George Bush, remember when we were losing over 500,000 jobs per month. The decline in Black income was just part of the larger hit to the economy that almost everyone felt as Bush and the bankers trashed to economy. But leave it to Joe the unlicensed plumber and the rest of the GOP to try a duck responsibility. Classic

          • Justin O’Reilly

            well for someone who keeps claiming those of us on the other side are “commie wannabes” you motherf**kers on the right sure DO like the colour “RED” a lot…you wanna know who ELSE loved the colour red????

            I’ll give you a few hints…he also, like you…was a Christian doing his “duty” (and it’s a big doodie!), he, like you…also hated communists….who also, again, like you, hated Democratic Liberalism…he also…just like who I’m talking to right now…hated what you call “darkies,” and was also, like you, anti-Semitic (hatred of Middle Eastern peoples, i.e., Jews and Arabs/Muslims)…wanna take a stab as to who that guy was???

            BINGO!!! Adolf Hitler…the openly hated but secretly loved darling of the extreme Christian far-right conservative wing. And if you know ANYTHING about ANYTHING at all, you’ll recall what HIS final solution was…and I’ll tell you right now…I don’t like Communists (the political kind…I’m okay with sharing certain things, this is supposedly what Jesus taught…I just don’t like how it was practiced in Russia, China and Cuba, etc.)…but I’ll take being called one as a compliment from someone like you…because you honestly can’t tell me what it really is…I don’t care if you DID serve in ‘Nam…my dad did too…and he could clearly tell the difference between Democratic Liberalism and Communism, unlike a certain someone on this thread.

            And I’ll tell you something else, as much as I hate political Communism…I’d rather see the good communism in place than Political Nazism…because that’s infinitely worse…there’s NO good qualities to Nazism. At least communism was born from a noble ideal, and then tainted by shitheads like Castro, Mao and Stalin. And while Stalin and Mao have committed atrocities…Hitler’s had the longest lasting impression on the world…And to be honest, I don’t like the left all that much either. But I find the Right to be much more infinitely EVIL..and if it WASN’T for the extremists and the Tea Party…I’d actually vote Republican once in a while, as long as the bastard doesn’t try to kill his nation with his policies, as our dear Repub Congress has actually tried to do and has almost succeeded in doing…so forgive me if I don’t vote Conservative Republican as defined by the Tea Party…because I don’t want to find myself in a place like Auschwitz…I have elderly relatives that survived that hell, and I have had nightmares about being locked up in a place like that…so I vote left, because from what I’m seeing, the right scares the piss out of me due to their master plans for this nation.

      • paintinc56

        Proving once again how MENTALLY BANKRUPT you LEFTISTS REALLY ARE, the ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY A BLACK CONSERVATIVE. Is HE a RACIST because blacks were doing 100 times better under Regan?
        CAN YOU READ??!!!!

        • CayucosDrew

          One, I’m registered independent and politically moderate, but I vote Democrat these days because people like you scare me. Two, the byline says Joe Wurzelbacher (who I believe is white), so I’m not sure what you’re talking about. If a “BLACK CONSERVATIVE” wrote the article, Joe should give him/her credit instead of plagiarizing.

            Exactly. I clicked on the link to ‘read more’ only to discover who the real author was. Writing terrible articles is bad enough. Plagiarizing terrible articles is even worse.

            This may be a challenging concept to understand, but Joe’s blog is a member of the Liberty Alliance, a group of conservative blogs that share articles. Nobody steals. They share. Golly gee, what an idea.

            You mean they all share resources as a collective? Gee, I wonder where they got that idea…

            “Communism is a political thought based on sharing of efforts and sharing of resources.”

          Many liberals are too busy screaming and yelling like spoiled kids who want their way to actually READ facts, or heaven forbid, real truth. Or, they were not educated in the skill of “critical thinking” while attending failing schools run by teachers’ unions more interested in achieving attendance goals than in achieving academic ones.

            You’re right, Molli. Harvard really did me a disservice. Terrible education.

          • Armando Wilson

            Molli,

            My inferior liberal thinking would lead me to ask whether Reagan’s policies had an immediate impact. My of intellect forces me to view things over time to show their true success. Unfortunately, people now days are too quick to label something a failure or success without studying all things that impact it. I’d certainly study policies that impacted businesses during the period cited (and preceding it, since this don’t magically change over night) other than just attributing things to just having Reagan as president. Reagan’s war on drugs has shown to be a failure that has disproportionately impacted minority men. I’d be curious to see the original author of this article, and the impact minor drug records have had on minority men for future employment compared to their white counterparts. Furthermore, what specific numbers is the original author citing? If an increase of African American owned businesses increased during that period, what sales size and income did that business have? When was it created? How did those figures fare compare to noon African American owned businesses? Statistics can’t paint any picture you want depending on how you present the information.

          • JessicaSideways

            No, that would be conservatives. It is conservatives that scream and yell like spoiled kids who want their way, ignoring all the facts or truth. The current government shutdown is a prime example of that.

            There is no such thing as “real truth”, there is only the truth. There can’t be a false truth because that would then be, just simply, false. Is it this kind of double speak that goes on in conservative circle jerks?

          • Andrew

            Facts? Facts? When’s the last time you learned a true fact on your own without having it screamed to you on Fox News? Go to the library. Open a book. Read it. Or is going to a library too unpatriotic and communist to you?

          • CentralScruntinizer

          • Amanda De

            Yeah it’s the people who write comments like yours (which makes assumptions in order to write off millions of people’s opinions for having what you describe as the the exact same negative characteristics) who are the really well educated, critical thinkers. No wonder you like the kind of drivel on this site.

          • CayucosDrew

            The thing that bothers me about people like you is that you consider everyone who disagrees with you about an issue “liberal” or “leftist.” Your extremism is what forces moderates like me to consistently vote for Democratic candidates. If you’re wondering why President Obama got re-elected, look in the mirror.

          • Jeffrey Robinson

            Wow, Kent2012, thanks for showing your epic stupidity right off the bat!

            first, notice how you don’t at all show or explain how I am possibly a bigot. Secondly, you haven’t the logical skills (or language skills for that matter) to respond to my own criticism.

            No, like the typical baffoon who is convinced he is smarter than he is, you just use words without explanation and ignore the substance of the comment to which you were responding – which is what idiots do, Kent1242 – the year of your cultural intelligence – and idiot you are.

            I know you have a disturbing infatuation with Mr. Plumber, and thus feel the need to defend him even though your are intellectually disarmed. So, again, your rant just comes out as emotional, and then you go on a tangent about other individuals that don’t even pertain to the conversation at hand or the comments that followed.

            So you have the reading comprehension of a first grader. And since you don’t understand what you are reading, save for the feeling that you are, in fact, an ignorant head nodding bobble head, you use key words and miss the point entirely – like, well, an idiot.

            I can’t wait for your next extremely long and incoherent run on sentence that will simply mean “I have a crush on Mr. Plumber and bobble my head to conservative authority.”

            Having no mind of your own Kent: how’s that working out for you?

    The Black Senators and Congressmen have proved time again that they are biased and Racists against the White people. Same thing for the Latino Caucus, they are Racist against the White population because they always vote for the Latino’s right or wrong and they were born in this Country. Same thing with the Blacks that do not appreciate that it is the White people that went out of their way to set them free. It is the White people who took a back seat for them and let them become the chosen people of the Government stopping all White males from advancing even though the White male was more qualified for anything.

    The Black male and females are chosen first over all White people for everything of any impotence. They are the only ones that can show up at a college and walk right in with no SAT test or show any educational credentials. They don’t have to pay for their education they get free housing and free spending money and they don’t even have to show up for classes to get a degree in let’s say law like the Obama’s. And the White people have to take a back seat and not complain.

    Sonia Sottamayor is a good example of Racism first, she even brags about being a Affirmative Action person all her life. She did not attend any classes for law, she couldn’t understand what she was reading and was told to read children classic books. Yet she because of Affirmative Action she was appointed a Federal Judge and all her decisions were based on Racism and delighted in putting down White lawyers in her court. Now she,is still a Racist and a bigot, is a hand picked Supreme Court Justice controlled by our Racist, Muslim, Bigoted Communist, President Barrack Hussein Obama, who hate’s the United States and the Military, and all the White people, even though he is a White/Negro.

    As a TEA Party, White Conservative person I would rather follow the words of Dr Martin Luther
    King and “Judge a man by the content of his heart and not the color of his skin”. Unfortunately
    the first Black person elected to office turned out to be a racist, anti American, Anti Christian
    and totally unqualified to even speak to the American people. His actions have done more harm
    to race relations in our nation since the violence during the Civil Rights movement. He, and
    other race baiters, have done all they can to start a civil rights war and destroy the advancements
    that we have made towards equality for All Americans, not just a “select few”.
    Personally I have know Men and Women of various races that I met in the military that I would
    follow to hell and back again never doubting their qualifications. But by the same token I have
    also met some in leadership positions that were unqualified to clean the outhouse those normally
    do not last very long.

        The last time I check on the number of voters in the south there were more
        registered Black/minority voters than those identified as white. This surprisingly
        enough was a report done by the Democrat party. The TEA party has numerous
        members from all racial divides in it and gaining more and more ever day. It is
        open to any and all who are upset with the games being played by the diversity
        leaders on the left. I think your moniker tell a lot about you mental status and
        the fact that you are a disgruntled Kool Aid drinker. Wake up and get facts
        before you show you lack of knowledge. To require a person to have a photo

        agency in the world today. Even in foreign lands you must have a photo
        I.D. issued by their respective governments or you do not get to vote nor

          As for the IDs, I don’t mind. IDs seem like a reasonable thing to require, so long as it’s easy to get one from your state and local government. In some places, THAT is under attack as well. That shouldn’t be.

          What I mind is shortening early voting BY WEEKS AT A TIME, as well as shortening the hours available to vote ONLY to 9-5 hours, basically ensuring that fewer poor folks will make it to the polls before voting is closed. THAT bothers me. That’s intentionally making it harder for people to exercise their right to free elections. How, exactly, do you justify that?

      You are absolutey correct. It amazes me how many kool-aid drinkers are commenting on this article. I guess Joe struck a chord and scared their little asses. You can almost see them frothing at the mouth while spewing their anti-American comments knowing they can hide behind a keyboard and nobody will ever know who they are. Cowards always hide.

    I have to shake my head when people post comments without actually reading the article, or even checking out who wrote it.

    • hdtex

      Most on the right can’t read. What do you expect? Needs more purty pictures.

  • Mobyminnow

    Joe,
    You’re an idiot. If criticism of POTUS didn’t come with pictures of watermelons, or being called “boy”, or being called a liar during the State of the Union address, or being called “food stamp President”, or being called someone with a “Kenyan Marxist worldview”, or numerous other slurs, I’d agree with you.
    I thought your 15 minutes was over and here you are holding down your little corner of the blogosphere. Good for you.
    You do realize that the Koch Brothers wouldn’t allow you to shine their shoes don’t you? How you identify with those folks is beyond me because based on your life performance so far, you’ll never get rich, lol.

    • Carol Cowart

      You are assuming the Joe’s goal in life is to “get rich”. He is rich in ways many people will never understand.

      • robtish

        Yeah, rich in what comes out the back end of a cow.

    • Dawn Garland

      he’s called the food stamp president for a reason—look it up. and don’t forget that this president calls Tea Party people all sorts of names–he is utterly classless, and you are drinking the kool aid and drowning in ignorance. Time to wake up before YOUR America is totally gone…he is hurting you too.

      • grassroot

        He’s a Marxist and driving this country under, as is his aim.

        • hdtex

          And you’re far too stupid to know what “marxist” means.

      • Brian Daugherty

        So let me get this straight Dawn. Instead of giving us meaningful examples that back up your arguments you want us to look it up and prove your point for you? what a ground breaking Idea that is my little country bumpkin.

      • Perrofelix

        Yes, Fox News is calling him the food stamp president because under the economy GWB left us more people than ever have been on food stamps. I’m familiar. The reason Fox has made this a talking point is because they think that a time when more then ever people are dependent on food stamps is would be the perfect time to cut the program.

        • Retired MSGT USAF

          Ok, here goes the BLAME GWB bunch all over again. Get a LIFE. Under the economy we have been in for the last 5 years the Obama Administration has doubled the number of people on “Food Stamps”. GWB did not double OUR debt in the last 5 years. GWB did not cause the Senate to NOT pass a BUDGET in the last 4 years. GWB did NOT and has NOT been in power for the last 5 years to blame him for anything. He tried to STOP the Democrat Congress from giving out loans to people who did NOT deserve to get them and the Housing market dumped! Obama has NOT taken responsibility for anything, ever! It is always somebody else’s fault! NEVER HIS!

          • JoeNCA

            Funny how all that still has GWB’s signature on it when it went into law.

          • Perrofelix

            “You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter. We won the mid-term elections, this is our due.” – Dick Cheney telling Paul O’Neill, treasury sec., we could go ahead with those tax cuts that would blow up our debt. So, I wonder why we didn’t see the “TEA Party” founded until less than a month after the inauguration?

            see? You’re not so neutral…admit it…you are as partisan as they come.

  • tinkerblue

    Joe, I wish you would go crawl back in the hole you crawled out of. Plumbing is what you should go back to, or rather, what you should actually try to accomplish since you were never really a certified plumber.

    I don’t want a Republican of ANY color to ever hold the office of the Presidency ever again. The last 30 years has seen the rise of conservatism and the decline of America, and the responsibility for that decline lies in the Republican’s hands.

    And really? “Back when blacks were sane…”? Really? “Many deranged Mexicans…”? Really?

    And you wonder why they don’t vote for your party.

    • Anna Fabian

      Well if life was so bad under the gop…what ii could go on and on but i have more important things to do!n the hell do you call what we have endured under this anti american socialist?
      I guess you think it’s great, huh.
      Loss of business, lack of god, lack of morals, lack of any kind of leadership of any kind.
      loads of scandals, just overlook those too.
      they were’nt really real to the parents or families of the soldiers and ambassor that were left defenless in benghazi.
      That really was not real the irs targeting consertatives and in some cases raiding their businesses and reaking havock on them.
      or auditing dr. Ben carson after he spoke out on how bad obamacare is for our country.
      arms to the muslim britherhood in egypt and syria to kill innocent christians…no not real!
      There are so many more but i hsve other things to do.
      Get your head out of the sand and try investigating exactually what is going on in this corrupt admin.
      I would vote for a drug dealer before i would vote democrat.
      at least the drug dealer knows how to run a business, inlike what we have now!
      have a great day! :-)

      • bobby

        I have seen alot of crazy remarks in my time but you take the prize. You said I have more important things to do, but went on and on about a bunch of no issues. I would like to know what you have endured under this administration. Let me tell you what I have endured. Under Bush I lost thousands in my 401K. Under Obama the Dow went from 6500 in March of 2009 to over 15000 today, I got my thousands back and then some. Under Bush we were attack on 911, 3000 Americans lost their lives. Under Obama we have been kept safe, the NRA is the only terrorist group we have in this Country. Under Bush we were losing 100,000 jobs a month in the private sector, under Obama we have had 47 months of positive private sector job growth, that amounts to over 7.4 million jobs. Under Bush the auto industry was dead, Obama gave it CPR and now they are operating on all cylinders. Under Bush we went into two wars, not paid for and the Iraq war was sold to the American people based on lies, 4500 American died there, countless others will carry the scars of war for the rest of their lives. Under Bush we had a tax cut for his rich friends, not paid for, the leading cause for the financial meltdown. Under Bush a drug program, not paid for. There are no scandals except those created on web sites like this one and others or by Rush, Beck, Hannity, Palin and the list goes on. An example was the IRS, that was started by a Republican and the target was all new organizations taking a tax exempt status, the Tea Party was starting groups up all over at a 10-1 rate compared to other groups, of course it may appears they were being targeted, they were not. If any of these claims were valid you have a Republican watch dog called Congressman ISSA to investigate and bring charges, has he done that, no, because all these so call scandals are made up. The reason Benghazi was not pursued is because the President ask for more funds to add security to our embassies around the world, that was 6 months prior to that incident, the Republican Congress would not approve the funding, that is why Issa is not pursuing the Benghazi incident, it would make him and the Republican party look stupid. Most of the benifits of The Affordable Healthcare Act has been working for some time, that would include pre-existing conditions, no cap for life time max, keeping your kids on until 26. Just make a note, this healthcare reform package is a Republican plan, Romney put it though when he was Governor of MA, the Heritage Foundation endorsed it, it was not a problem until Obama jumped on board, if this were a true Democratic plan, it would be a single payer. People like you are a mouth piece for the extreme right wing of the Republican party, do you really know what you are against, that would be women, children, workers, middle class, the poor, that would be 98% of America, you are supporting 2% of the people in this Country, that is what I would call Anti-American. You would rather see a drug dealer be President, the way you are talking crazy I am thinking that could be your supplier.

        • Joe Kosior

          Not even George Bush, as smart a man as he is, could undo the damage Bill Clinton did to this economy. That’s why he clobbered Al, the hanging chadsman, Gore. We needed GW then and we need another republican now to get us out of what the current resident of the white house is trying, because of fools like you, to do to this great country. Good luck living in your fantasy world because if the marxist is successful in destroying America, you’ll be one of the numbsculls wondering what happened.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Yes a man, who by the way, was the First President EVER to have a Masters Degree!

          • Perrofelix

            If correct, that’s an interesting fact. I thought it was people on the right who are skeptical of “left wing indoctrination” in universities and feel that the Dep’t of Education needs to be defunded so we can all go to the Creationist Museum or the nearest taxpayer/voucher-funded High School of Scientology to learn about how the earth is 6000 years old and global warming is not happening.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Get real.

          • Perrofelix

            Yes sorry, there is no High School of Scientology as I know of YET. Though Jindal’s constituents did get spooked when an Islamic, religious school was found to qualify for vouchers the way the law was written. Everything else is accurate. Google “Defund the Department of Education” and you will fund countless right-wing sites, groups and articles pushing for it. Also using Google, you can easily find info about the Creationist Museum where humans walk alongside dinosaurs, You can find right-wingers who believe the earth is 6000 years old and get offended when their public schools say otherwise, and plenty of Congressional climate change deniers (mostly TEA partiers, of course). Google “university brainwashing” for my first point.

            I am completely real.

          • Wesley Nelson

            Dr. Clinton has a PHD from Oxford, at Cambridge, the most prestigious college in the world. Requirements for a PHD, include having your work published, a Masters Degree, 2 years of post grad work in your chosen area of expertise, and many other requirements that are beyond your comprehension level.

          • Wesley Nelson

            George Bush public records indicate he just barely passed many of his courses. He was a member of Skull and Bones, famous for their patronage of other well healed conservatives. I expect that To this guy college was a frat party who only passed his courses by the influence his patrons inflicted on his professors. How can you like this sub-human, I mean you are a vet like me, and he was mainly concerned about avoiding service.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Still even with your background it does not mater. He still is the first President to have been elected who had a Masters Degree. Have we seen ANY information on President Obama’s education record, of course not, he had all of them SEALED, as if he was hiding something, or was a very poor student. I do not know which, and neither do you, because he had them sealed. Great job of vetting this guy.

          • Mike Brown

            Moron…let me break this down for you.
            1. A law degree pretty much trumps Bush’s bullshit MBA. Infact I would argue most advanced degree’s trump MBA’s as they are a dime a dozen.
            2. President Obama’s education record is just as available as Bushes.
            3. The fact that President Obama was elected as editor of the Harvard Law review seems to be lost on your dumb-ass. Go look it up before you cast doubt upon the intellect of Mr. Obama.
            4. The fact that your dumb, sill-ass truelly beleives that GW even remotely approaches Mr. Obama w/r to intellect…..LOL…why are conservatives always down to a man such slack-jawed imbeciles ?

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Mr Brown, if that is your name. You need to check to see what information is available for this jackass we have as a president right now.
            1. Why would anyone seal up his education documents? Because he is HIDING something!!!
            2. No it is NOT available to do any research on. His Records are sealed.
            3. He may have been elected to the Harvard Law Review. So WHAT? You ignore the fact that he was forced by the Illinois Bar Association to give up his Law License to practice law. There is a improper deed somewhere there. Lawyers don’t just give up their licence to practice law over a parking ticket.
            4. I could say the exact same thing about your LIBERAL BS you are spouting in here. GET A LIFE and stay out of mine.

          • LixBugz

            Hey retard….nothing is “sealed by court order”. He doesn’t have to reveal his records. MANY other presidents haven’t revealed their records. So piss you inbred trash.

            http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Oh yes it is sealed by court order he spent almost 1 million dollars to seal them.

          • my20cents

            Come on, don’t be a liar.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Ok, If you want to call me a liar. Then prove to me that you can go online, find those documents, provide me with the website to download them. Then and only then will I apologize, and say that I was wrong.
            But, I am telling you flat out that you will not find any of his documents anywhere. He had them sealed. The documents, his grades, his enrollment into any college or university, even his High School records are all sealed. If they were not, after 5 years of looking for any one of them, I have not been able to find them. The only documents that I have been able to find have been proven to be fraudulent. Show me the proof and I will shut up. But, until you do, I am telling the truth.

          • my20cents

            Now your story has changed, you can not find records. Of course, the schools have his records and they are protected unless you can come up with a valid reason to see them then they will not be released to the public. All school records are treated that way, nothing special about the presidents. Sure, you may have looked and looked, great, you will never find them, of course. Research the efforts of the worst lawyer in the world, Orly Taitz and you will learn all about the confidentiality of school records. It cost her 4k dollars in sanctions for her schooling, you get it for free

            So stating that Obama sealed his records is a flat out lie. Let me give you a bit of advice, do not believe everything on the internet. Do not let your hate for president Obama cloud yor good judgment and common sense,

          • Kent2012

            many have looked in order to publish that magician’s trail from kenya through indonesia and then somehow he was born again in Hawaii and then shows up enrolled at Columbia as a “foreign student”….kenyan boy still does not have the true credentials to be president under the guidelines of the constitution, there is no reference to it being acceptable to have an islamy clown from kenya as your father…..

          • WJM51

            Moron. Go online and try to find YOUR OWN records. Please. I’ll wait. Know what? THEY AREN’T THERE! Why the hell should anyone else’s, including the president’s be online? If YOURS aren’t then why should his be?

            Honestly, you Faux Noise lovers just drive me nuts. They went to court to verify that they have a “right” to LIE to you, they are PROVEN to be liars, and you still believe everything hook, line, and sinker. You are absolutely pathetic.

          • Kent2012

            kenyan boy is a diaper head loving, communist. his only job “professor”? There are no public records that have been published suggesting where his college studies start, we know where he “supposedly” acquired his LLB, but his modesty caused him to feel the need to seal those records. The highest office in the land has some special requirements and one of them has something to do with not having a nappy headed clown islamy as your father…the african pretender has a cheer leading group of $luts in the media that took every opportunity to slam George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, but they are so cowardly that they will not even question this pimp’$ involvement in directing the Benghazi debacle and his cowardice in that mess. That is to be expected from kenyan clowns and he is well supported by ignorant clowns right here in the Great USA, because cowards recognize other cowards and they feel an affinity for their messiah…….

          • Perrofelix

            I’ll just add that even Woodrow Wilson obtained his doctorate in history and poli sci from Johns Hopkins a century before GWB was upon the throne. Abe Lincoln famously was a lawyer and therefore had a law degree. Maybe the statistic you are looking for is the first president with an MBA, not the first with a Master’s degree.

            Dear MSGT, go back to school. W got a gentleman’s MBA alright but just off the top of my head, Wilson, Clinton, Obama all had Doctorates (J.D.) In fact, Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, Wilson was President of Princeton and Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review, to which students are not even invited unless they are among the best in their class. Fortunately, thanks to tiresome ranters longing for an imaginary antebellum America, this trend of terminal degree holders will no doubt continue under the second President Clinton, a graduate of Yale Law likely to be elected because of our citizenry’s disgust at the factually disprovable nonsense propagated by uninformed people such as the person who writes under your name.

          • cjmarley

            Well let’s see…he joined the Guard in 1968…he graduated in 1970. Went on to do additional training to be a fighter pilot but in 1972 he lost his pilot’s authorization due to failure to meet Air Force requirements (this at a time when there was intense bombing taking place in Hanoi and other northern cities. The next year he was discharged from the guard and discharged from the reserves in 1974. It was found later during an investigation that Bush did NOT fulfill his required obligations during his service and actually could have been ordered to active duty because of that. I wouldn’t call him a bastion of military service.

            Joe, this is satire, right? A bizarro universe world where George Bush is smart, where the 2000 election was a “clobbering” rather than one in which the loser actually got the most popular votes, and where President Obama is a Marxist.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Popular vote do not count in this Republic. It is the Electoral College that is where it really counts. Learn why that is so and then you may be more informed.

          • Perrofelix

            I understand that. I am not saying the popular vote is how elections are decided in this country. I simply said that you can’t call such a narrow election a “clobbering”. I demonstrate/remind how narrow the election was by mentioning the popular vote, but I can also bring up the Bush V. Gore court case and the fact that the official outcome was in doubt for several days. All of this shows that calling the 2000 election a “clobbering” is a rewrite of history.

            I do understand that people on the right such as you like to infantilize their opponents though.

          • Kent2012

            it is not difficult to do…infantilizing that is..and that court case, it was brought by that co-conspirator of billy “the traitor” clintony (remember the chinkee campaign contribution thing, oh and the impeachment too) It had nothing to do with the kind of voting fraud that went on in 2012, but not too worry….that $lut who was married to the traitor will run for senior ho in 2016….

          • Perrofelix

            Yes, infantilizing rather than arguing a point is rather a reflex action, isn’t it? Go ahead, keep undermining Joe’s point. A recap: This article’s premise is that Republicans are not racist, they just keep getting called that whenever they try to criticize the President on valid policy grounds. Therefore, having a nice white (Republican) president would completely sidestep the issue..

            Then down here you are using “chinkee”… and if your reaction to Hillary is to say “senior ho” and “$lut,” then you are going to be the catalyst for his article in 2018 when he says we all just need a male president because no one can criticize Hillary without being called a sexist.

          • Kent2012

            arguing in the “classical” sense seems to go right over the heads of the propagandized welfare crowd and makes no difference to the worthless government unions….using names and disrespecting others works with those nit wits because that is the level they operate on…..doing the John mcshame trick of following the “high road” totally bypasses the intellectual level of the adversaries of capitalism, free speech, the second amendment, and the operational effectiveness of the American form of “balanced” government..oh and I am very biased, I have an intense hatred for communists and any clowns that want to turn this country into another backwater……

          • Perrofelix

            If you have an intense hatred for clowns that want to turn this country into another backwater, then you should REALLY hate this thing called the “TEA Party.”

            I’m so impressed that your smart, classical arguments are so over everyone;’s heads that you have to dumb yourself down to “chinkee,” senior ho, $lut, “libtard,” and jokes about sex-change operations.

            Of course popular vote still counts. Do you think Electors just randomly show up? DUH

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Do you have any idea how the Electoral College even works? They can vote the way the popular vote goes, but they are NOT prescribed by law to do that..They can vote any way the feel like voting. The popular vote DOES NOT elect the President or the Vice-President. Go back to school or better yet look up the Electoral College here online. You need an education.

          • koolkat_1960

            Yes, you blithering idiot, I know the Electors don’t “have” to vote for who the popular vote says they should vote for, but only in a very few cases have their been faithless Electors and never when it’s made any difference. But you’re probably one of those clowns who don’t think this great country is a democracy.

Yes, I just retired in 2007 after almost 25 years in the Air Force TACP. I really doubt if you even have a clue what that is. All I know is I have been shot at and shot back. The ones that shot at me are in the desert sands to this day. So, if you doubt who and what I am BRING IT ON you wimp. I can tell you one thing, You call yourself a rebel… you have no idea. Maybe you should look up what I did for a living. It will tell you all of the easy things I have had to do for this country. It’s not even half of it. Look up what a TACP is and shut the F up..

            Well, if you think this last recession was bad, which by the way after 5 years it still is not over, wait for two to three years from now and you will be wishing for the ole’ days of Bush. With a projected 20 Trillion dollars in DEBT and a slack economy that really is going nowhere at the highest rate of unemployment since the late 1950s, This small amount of good things happening in the Stock Market will blow up in about two-three years and the printing of money at 53 Billion dollars per week. Can you say the Greater Depression instead of the Great Depression? The inflation and lack of tax revenue due to all of the part time jobs people are being forced into at 29 hours per week will be staggering. The Greater Depression will drag every country in this entire world down because of economic collapse that is brought about by the policies of a “community organizer”.

          • Perrofelix

            The economy will blow up a lot sooner than that if these dead-enders make us default on our debt because the president is done negotiating with terrorists.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            That’s not going to happen. You know it and so do I. Both sides will agree to it and all of this BS talk about the debt ceiling will be over before you know it, Concessions will be made by both sides and the rhetoric will subside a bit. The 82-84% of the government will keep on working and the rest will be paid when this budget is straightened out. You know it and so do I. The people of this country on both sides will stop this political Washington DC bickering after they have had enough of the BS in Washington DC. All of the Senators, Representatives, and the President know that as well, because they do want to be re-elected in 2014. They know if they push any harder, and the polls show it, the majority of all of the Reps/Senators will be voted out of office in that election. They do one thing in Washington DC, they watch the polls and they all know their jobs are on the line from both sides of the aisles. I still say the economy will blow up as usually it does at the end of an eight year Presidency, it almost always does. How bad it will be, depends upon clear heads on both sides of the aisles. There may not be anything that can be done if the Debt and the printing of cash and the Budget that has not been passed in the last 4 years is not accomplished. By the way, Harry Reid is a MAJOR part of the problem in this cat fighting in WDC as well as the President. It is not just the Republicans in the House.

            Clobbered? You have a strange view of history. I seem to remember Gore winning the popular vote. I also remember the Supreme Court having to rule in favor of Bush. It was a conservative court. You can’t call that a clobbering.

          • Retired MSGT USAF

            Popular Votes do NOT win the White House and you should know that. The Electoral College are the ones that actually vote the President and Vice-President into office. Get over Gore. He would have been the second worst President of all time.

          • Rikian319

            Obviously they don’t win the white house. The point was that Gore wasn’t “clobbered” at all. A clobbering would have been the Reagan victories. Even the GHWBush Victory. Clinton’s victories… I’ll even go to GWB’s 2004 run. That wasn’t quite a clobbering, but a decisive victory none the less. It’s terrible speculation to say that he would have been the second worse. Who do you think is the worst? Carter? All I was saying is that the Supreme Court had to rule in favor of Bush winning. And that was only because it was a conservative leaning court. If it had been five liberal leaning justices, Gore would have likely been elected.
