Of course he does. He loves that “rasis” crap. That’s why he’s turned Americans against one another. United we stand, divided we fall. Commies aren’t dumb.

Tribal self-identification trumps all.

Especially with those who don’t consider themselves Americans first...

Of course he does. Obama is one of the most racist people alive today.

Try to imagine Presidents Nixon, Reagan, Bush, Ford or even Carter commenting and putting himself in the middle of something like this or the Trayvon Martin kerfuffle. I can't do it.

Well, that's just great. Because this story is one of the pivotal moments in history. It's critical that the President be involved on such important matters.

As a side note, my township is thinking about raising the dog license by $5. Please Mr. President, weigh in on this issue also!

I am waiting for ‘them’ to DECLARE the Clippers the NBA Champion in a couple of days.
The reason being that the players ‘deserve’ it for having to accept money from this Racist SOB.

Then they will take the Championship money and give it to the ‘needy’ of LA while stripping Sterling of his fortune.

Speaking of accepting money from the Racist - Wouldn’t the players etal be doing the right thing by giving his money back?
I have absolutely NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that all the Pols are going to return ANY monies he gave to them

Actually they will probably give absolution to the billions he gave to D’s and go after the 5 grand he may have donated to an R or two.

It's horrifying that these racist 'effers do not realize that nonsense like this will justify ANY war crimes.

I have the sickening feeling that Serbia's 'ethnic cleansing' and Rwanda's Hutu/Tutsi slaughter will qualify as minor kerfuffles when the history of the US collapse is written.

After the Clippers won last night I wouldn’t be surprised if the NBA rigs it so that the Clippers win the title, yeah they would even screw over their Messiah LeBron to make that happen

Another important moment:

Yep. A hundred years from now, historians are going to look at that photo of Obama picking his teams and ask: Really? The world was in turmoil and that's what the American President was doing?

I sure do miss Ronald Reagan.

Way to be residential, zero! If there is any possibility of playing a race card this resident is on it like flies on shit! Funny how no one (Okay a couple) is talking about the fact that this was a private conversation, illegally recorded.

What else could we expect from the racist disgrace who likes to spy on people and use the IRS as a weapon?

My dog loves to chase hares. Sometimes brings back (just) the head.

Not my choice but the dog is a personal trainer for wildlife. The geese don't poop on the lawn when she is on task.

The city pays for similar proclivities.

Here’s a president who pals around with one of the worst, race-baiting scoundrels in American history, Al Sharpton, but then feels free to lecture the country on racism.
