I'm sure this will be one of AG Holder's first 2014 issues to tackle.

That 18% is probably the same people who still think that Huessin is a greatest Press dent ever...

Funny that the “Independents” and “democrats” poll very similar. Goes to show that Independents are mostly Liberals who pretend to be open minded.

Shut the F up, Washington Redskins!

There is a vocal minority that will tell you what it wants and if you don't follow the OPTICS and NARRATIVE, then you will be crushed. /s

If I owned the Redskins I would call a news conference.

“I would like to announce that because of the pressure that has been brought to bear by the good people of Washington, asking that I change the name of the Washington Redskins... I have decided to do just that.

Starting next season the new name for the Washington Redskins will be... The Oklahoma Redskins!”

You would think that the ‘anti democrats’ would see that they are a substantial majority and annihilate the dems in the 2014 election.

I think the name Washington Redskins is a acceptance of ignorance. I want the name changed.

I want the team to go by the San Antonio Redskins.

Very few people want ObamaCare.

Very few people want to get rid of traditional light bulbs.

Very few people want homosexual marriage and adoption.

Very few people want to legalize all the illegals that are in our country.

So what?

The MSM has failed to convince the public on this one, but can they convince Dan Snyder?

Roger Goodell is the Pajama Boy of the NFL.

I don’t like the name San Diego Chargers. I am ONE person. I want the name changed to the EARNERS.

Change the name by dropping the “skin” part and make their new logo consist of the fearsome foursome—Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and Hillary.

National polls said most people did not want gay marriage - Give the media/leftist a little more time

18% feel the team should change their name.

In present day America, where no one must be offended, 18% is more than enough to justify the name change.

That's what gets me, and I end up confused. When they get here, and I've known a few Patels and Chandras, they look African-American.
