    Sorry- Was not thinking of him more than necessary VP Cheney. Who shot his friend in the face, hid in a bunker for months as he manipulated the former POTUS. Worse actor than Lon Chaney.

    Sorry, got the spelling of the monster actors missed up.
    bwahahaha!!!!

    This...so out of balance, so obviously a hounding of this black president, but the people engaged in the ridiculously over the top pursuit are blind to it...and their followers equally as blind, hanging on the glimmer of hope that there was some horrible secret and conspiracy to cover up. Where was this same conservative interest in the well being of our diplomats during the Bush administration...you remember, the administration that blatantly lied to the world about WMD.?.

    tewdles, why bring color into this? Why is it that if people do not like this man, do not think he is doing a good job, it MUST be because he is black? So when there is a white president, and black people criticize him/her, will THAT be because of color too? Come on, let's leave the straw-man arguments out of this.

    Benghazi is all about Hillary Clinton in case she dares make a run for President in 2016. None of the people "outraged" about it care two hoots about it. Where were you all complaining about the sixty or so US embassy employees Bush lost? Oh that's right, your media didn't tell you to be outraged about it, so you weren't.

    The health care law is a trainwreck because it still involves private insurance.

    I dunno, I might investigate people who thought they were Taxed Enough Already going for tax exempt status................however if it was improperly done it was improperly done.

    Um, yea. I would love for you to go say that in the face of family, friends, colleagues of those who died. I double dare ya. But yes, as Hillary Clinton said, who cares, right?

    Why not?
    It is the ONE thing that makes him different from any other president.
    I know, it makes some people uncomfortable, why?
    He is being treated about as badly as any POTUS in American history has been treated, ever...from shouting liar at him during a SOTU to making caricatures of him as an ape (a common representation of blacks in racism). New and amazing ways to disrespect the POTUS have been discovered and paraded on our streets, in the press, and in people's personal lives.

    If the fact that one of the two political parties in this great nation has vowed to make him a failure, even if that means that the country is harmed, is directed at the first black president... is that remarkable? The first time for both things...agendas of obstruction and failure and a black president. I mean, seriously, when did Republicans say anything like that about Clinton or any previous Democratic POTUS?

    Perhaps it is all coincidence Perhaps not.
    It is interesting that if the POTUS race is even mentioned (not as an accusation but just a statement of fact) people are angry, offended, and defensive.

    Hate Map

    The US has many haters. Race is one of the most common. The interactive map is interesting. I cannot put it up because it has racial slurs but if you go to the site you will be able to see interesting things.

    If you think that race does not play a part in American policy and think that justice really is blind then you really need to look at statistics. Perhaps some day we won't see color, we will see person. maybe in the future we won't judge by the sex, origin, religion, or other factors. Until then to deny that people treat people of color in a different manner is head in sand.

    Well see, that's the point, for me at least. I disagree with his policies. I don't think he is doing a good job. And that has nothing to do with the color of his skin. In fact, I think he has gotten much more credit than grief due to the color of his skin.

    We are all entitled to our opinions about the job he is doing as POTUS. Why would you think he has gotten undeserved credit BECAUSE he is black? Is there some evidence of that? It seems that this nation is having a hard time not accusing him of every crime, deceit, and treachery at every turn...how does that translate into getting "more credit than grief due to the color of his skin"?

    Not necessarily. Ever watched those videos with the laser guided bombs that correctly target the door of a bunker?
    How does that help just kill the bad guys and not the good guys inside?

    Isn't it natural to compare someone's performance to that of his predecessors? How else to you base success/failures, at least in terms of an elected official?
    Yes, the loss of life in Benghazi was tragic, what you might call a "never event" in hospital speak. Was this the first time ever? No. Has it happened more frequently in the past? How would you know unless you looked at the past?

    i see that you are relatively new to an's.
    as a result, you wouldn't understand the remarkable history of unprecedented and deluded accusations against this (black) president...and his wife.
    i am talking about pre-election 2008 to current.
    if you have time, i encourage you to read all of these old threads from 2006-2007 and on.
    again, i have never seen anything like it in my 13 yrs on this nsg site.
    so whether it is r/t obama's ethnicity or not, there is clearly something that has elicited such a raging, distorted, and paranoid response from some on this bb alone.
    i am not even talking about the right wing media's depictions.
    it has been disgraceful.
    still, i do believe it will be to our (the country's) benefit as i anticipate the gop is a lost cause...
    no matter which way they turn.

    i'm wondering if uRN meant that he was voted into office 'just' for being black?
    (uRN, please either correct me if wrong, or clarify.)
    that his qualifications and/or ideals were irrelevant...
    many just wanted a black president.
    if so, i do believe there is truth in that as well.

    still, i see our economy turning around and we are getting stronger day by day.
    i like the man, i like his ideals, and i trust his integrity and intent.
    happy camper, here.
