“I think Stein is very perceptive and has a long record of being right about a lot of things.”

Such as the economy being “very strong” right before the global collapse?

Aha.

“I’m a little surprised any Obama supporter would want to challenge the ‘anti-white’ tag, actually.”

Wait, so Obama, who is half-white, is anti-half himself?

The hilarity of the brainwashed fascists never ceases to amaze…

By race games, lets put it bluntly, what you actually mean is he is “Being president while black.” There is nothing he could do to stop your accusation of “race games” because it isn’t him who is playing them – its you.

He could dress in a “scary ghost” costume and publically burn crosses on his own lawn for America hiring a black man as president and you would still accuse him of being anti-white.

Why? Because how he actually acts is irrelevant to racists like you. That he is successful instantly makes him “anti-white” to you, because you are a loser and you despise the fact that someone who you were raised to think of as being inferior actually got further in life than you did.

And lets face it, with the accusation that Obama’s healthcare plan means someone from government can “deny you healthcare” what the heck do you think is happening now dumbass?

There are people out there paying insurance who are finding due to so-called “pre-existing conditions” they aren’t actually insured – and good luck to them ever getting their money back.

Health care costs made up about 50% of the US’s bankruptcy procedings prior to the start of the current economic meltdown – the health insurance “industry” (Or more like organised crime racket, complete with a dubious concept of the value of human life) and America’s health care costs are the highest in the world – while ranking just above Cuba in terms of how good the service actually is, and it still doesn’t cover as many people.

The current system isn’t just broken it is cancerous.

He won reelection to that office by a huge margin and was endorsed by many Texas Democrats when he ran for US President.

Palin obviously was far less experienced when selected for the VP slot, but she still had more experience than Obama.

It boggles the mind; it shows the dominance of ideology over reason.

The only good thing is that it’s so clearly off base that it demonstrates how out of it Republicans have become. With every ‘character attack’ they attempt, they betray their own lack of character. Sorry, guys. Perhaps you should work more on your own character development.

The July seems to be not only a month of human joining, but he also sprays a lot of hatred envy and otherwise what with many peoples to preseem brings.

However, must it be unconditional then that the NEWS GURU REUTERS the New York Times with in the mud pulls?

Certainly there are still many other good significant newspaper publishing companies, the New York Times is still one of the Most important publishing companies with very big potential in the correctness of her journalists, Story’s, criticism of any column as well as objectivity.

Myself myself do not like thus something, but I retrain integry the context fairness and freedom of speech.
What I lack in your criticism, is the exact cause of her
trouble.
Certainly, criticism never is is absent on the place and also had to do our life not only negative influence.

Is your real problem the New York Times or Ben Stein? Or the kind of journalisms of that?

Attack to me without appreciative facts please not the world important New York Times.

And a little bit more shown circumstances, so that the reader can make to himself a better picture of the cause, would be right like in the topical example of judge Sonia Sotomayor, nevertheless, with thanks very much.

The worst of those ads is where the guy complains that if he had known his bride’s credit report he would never have married her. Chivalry ain’t just dead, its charbroiled.

Better Stein and an animated squirrel.

I tend to give Obama some slack on his race games, because it’s obvious that he’s played them mostly to ingratiate himself with American blacks, who unlike him are overwhelmingly descendants of West African slaves. Obama himself is half white (mostly Scots-Irish?) and half Kenyan – neither one of these groups is remotely closely related to the ethnic groups in Africa from which most American blacks descend.

It’s pretty obvious that American whites are willing to tolerate vast amounts of racial hatred from blacks. Obama has never come close to the boundary that con-artists such as Al Sharpton have made careers out of running along.

Not invading Iraq.
