The only cloud of racism I see is around folks like you who seem to honestly believe that anyone not going ga-ga over Ol' Barack Hussein surely must be a racist.

Please demonstrate where anyone here has gone ga-ga over Obama; be aware that bristling at those who throw baseless accusations at the man is not the same as being one of his disciples.

How bristling at those who say anything other than "Go Barack Hussein!"?

You've gotten yourself really wrapped around the axle on this one. I (and others) have been fairly consistent in saying we reserve final judgement on the candidate, and that in some cases, we have a serious difference of opinion on certain issues with the candidate.

Where I for one will push back is upon encountering those who don't take the time to question or criticize the candidate or his positions on issues, but who instead chose to denigrate the man without so much as a shred of substance.

If you can't separate the two, then you might kindly recuse yourself from participating here. All you've managed to do is be inflammatory, and even racist, in your remarks.

You called the man a "political fraud" most recently. Prove it.

I must say, I'm a little envious. If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed.

It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks.


-- President George W. Bush, March 13, 2008

You Republicans are a fucking joke. Calling Obama a fraud after eight years of Bush. Yeah right.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

As opposed to you who looks and acts like a typical hyphenated hippie who will cheer absolutely anything that the other hyphenated hippies are cheering.

Just as your unwilling to make a serious effort to assess Obama as a political candidate based on his positions, you are apparently unwilling or unable to form an image of those of us posting here based on our statements in the past. QBNCGR in no way ever presented himself as "typical hyphenated hippie" and the suggestion does no more than make your terminally small minded outlook apparent. Jim
