And to note in this article, McCain and Bush HATE each other! They're not allies. They'll never be allies. 2000 took care of that.
I hope McCain strikes this with Obammah.
It's just one more lying turd to add to the ten thousand piles of steaming marxist media bullshite that's already been spewed the past year.
You are right about trying to tie Bush to McCain — they do HATE each other and the more I learn the more I become on the side of McCain — what was done to him in 2000 was terrible and Rove should be ashamed. I am ashamed I swallowed the Rove koolaid in 2000 and attacked McCain using facts that were presented which turned out to be not exactly factual to be kind.
Now to my favorite part of the article which stated lots of Republicans are not voting against Obama because of his race but because we won’t vote for any Democrat for President — white, black, brown. That sums it up perfectly and why calling Republicans that won’t vote for Obama racists is so stupid and ignorant!
Radical views steer voters away from Obama
I bet Hillary would add... undependable.
Well, according to the Governor of Kansas, racist Republicans are the only ones who aren’t voting for 0bama. And she’s really smart (according to a couple Democrat reporters).
barry’s RACISM steers WHITES dims from zero.
The Democrats and their allies in the media smell defeat, and in desperation are turning to the race card to explain their loss. Race will replace “Swiftboating” and Florida as an excuse for defeat.
Don’t like saying it, but this poll has some value for undedcided Dems.
Lots of Dems are going to see that lots of Dems are not voting for Barry. That may give many the ok to join that group.
They are probably tired of being called racists.
Why would anyone vote for a guy who constantly plays the race card against them?
Nice spin by Fournier... The white Dem is the racist. Not Obama.
Search Wright = No Text Found. Search Trinity United = No Text Found. Search Bitter = No Text Found.
It’s Obama who sat in a racist church for 20 YEARS. Not the white Dems. But why bother with facts.
Radical views steer voters away from Obama”
Your correction is right on. We must remember that the DEMS must lay the groundwork for the “country being too racist” to elect Obama to explain why he lost the election! The DEMS and the MSM will NEVER admit that Obama lost because of his plans for America to become a communist country!
I have known this all my life. My very liberal parents are very racist.
You see blacks are inferior and they need caretakers. Whites have the obligation to be caretakers and therefore our government is obligated to act in place of the benevolent slave master.
The theory is we can elect a black person to lesser offices because this is no different than appointing someone as a sharecropper. But how can we elect someone inferior who needs a caretaker to be the master?
A lot of Democrats are not thrilled with Senator Obama because besides the inexperience factor, he’s too much tied to the Chicago political machine (which a lot of Democrats don’t like) and Obama’s friends that have a really sketchy past.
On what do you base your belief that Rove was responsible or complicit, at least, in that?
Whites would be wise to not vote for Obama. He presented himself as the post-racial candidate, but has proven to be anything but. He is obsessed with race (he brings it up more then anyone), and the teachings of the church he attended for twenty plus years are alone reason enough to not vote for him.
Obama has the white guilt vote wrapped up, but it’s good to know that some white Dems. are able to extract themselves from that group psychosis and consider other factors.
FWIW, the guy's a freaking socialist. I could give a rat's hairy hind end about his skin color. Or gender for that matter.
Years of experience and having drank the koolaid only to find out in connecting the dots it was koolaid going way back with the same people. It has been an eye opener. Rove the architect almost cost two Presidential elections that should not have been close.
The more I researched after the 2006 election, the more things made sense. Rove royally undermined McCain with innuendoes that were taken as the truth.
Why do people give any credence to this drivel. Repeat after me, MSM, “Those who oppose Barak Obama do so because they reject his failed ideas and pitiful performance at every previous position.” The real racists in this campaign are those who put up the unqualified Obama. If he were a white male, would you even consider him? I don’t think so. Racism works both ways,you MSM fools.
It's a "racial misgiving" to say that blacks, like all other grownups, are "responsible for their own troubles"?
I’m not saying you’re right or wrong, because I have no clue; but I wonder if there is any evidence you can point me to that ties Rove to the ‘black child’ innuendo.
Same with my parents.
99% of black Democrats are racist.
33% of white Democrats are racist.
Interesting that Republicans are labled the racist party. hmmm.
When Obambi was up by 12% we weren’t racists. Two months later we’re racist. Soooo...it took us two months to figure out the O is black?
Obama’s OWN racist views should cost him the election.
RON FOURNIER, another MSM liberal hack who hates Reps. He tried to ambush Romney. Now he is trying to shame white democrats into voting for Obama by laying a guilt trip on them and calling them racists.
I can tell you without hesitation that the more liberal a person is the more likely he is to comment on our 'mixed' family. The more conservative, the less likely. In fact no conservative has ever made any comment at all while virtually every liberal has felt the need to say something.
This article says some things about how whites see blacks that, I think, is very accurate.
In most cases, negative feelings towards blacks has little to do with skin color and a lot MORE to do with attitude and behavior.
One of the things that turns me off with blacks is the way they cop this “Ghetto Attitude” when around whites. This is done to intimidate whites, and it does. And they know it does. This kind of behavior can be turned on and off at will and I have personally seen this.
Suppose you’re a white guy who uses a fair amount of locker room language. But you also have the need to associate with others on a frequent basis, say, for business, where this kind of language would be considered totally unacceptable. You have the ability to turn it off.
Suppose you get into a heated argument with someone you’re attemtpting to do business with. At some point you will likely revert back to your regular speech patterns and the explitives are likely to fly. It’s a matter of losing a little bit of control.
Before Obama started taking hits to the chin from Palin, you saw the “good behavior” side of the guy. Now that he’s been injured, we’re beginning to see the real man and its turning off those even in his own party. His call this week to have his minions get into the faces of their neighbors and “aggressively argue” on his behalf, is nothing more than an intimidation ploy of a desparate, inner-city agitator, using naive youngsters to do his dirty work.
I have no doubt this will work to some extent with the younger crowd because they tend to be gullible. They don’t know the details of the man but are buying into the emotion. But with older folks who ARE studying the details, we are being given just one more reason to say NO to this political hack.
Look at Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jesse Jackson’s son, and Callipso Louie. They all use an intimidation approach designed to fan the flames of their base and intimidate eveyone else. What they don’t understand is that they are actually doing the greatest amount of harm to themselves.
I can’t believe how amazingly STUPID Obama is! And, of course, when he gets his ass handed to him on a platter in November he will blame all of it on racism, as will the MSM who are already making these claims. What a load of Freakin’ CRAP!
Would Collin Powell have attempted such insulting tactics?
Apparently, you can take the inner-city agitator out of the Ghetto but you can’t take the Ghetto out of the inner-city agitator.
Does all of the above make me a racist? Fine. Sue me.
They probably feel that they are the next to be thrown under Barry’s Bus!
Watch for articles in the coming days regarding whether ballots really are “secret”. They will try to scare dems, especially union members, into thinking their union will know how they voted.
But there was that Rassmussen poll that said 9% of Dems would never vote for a black man. That had nothing to do with 0bama’s radical views, they just don’t like blacks.
It is now racist to believe one of the most basic tenets of human existence, and that which helps separate us from the lower animals: that we acknowledge and accept responsibility for our own actions!
Maybe this 'dupe' article was posted because a few weeks back JimRob declared that AP articles were not to be posted and would be pulled. That policy/stance seems to have been eased since I do see AP articles popping up again.
As to it being 'tripe'? That's something else again. This is confirming the Bradley-Wilder effect, i.e.: That white liberal dems are racists. All their *tolerance* disappears behind the voting curtain.
So what? Racial views steer lots of blacks TOWARDS Hussein.
Obnoxious!! I realize that most of the birdbrains who write the above titles and subsequent BS are more than likely vegans whose brains have shrunk.
Give Americans credit. They have endured listening to Obama for the last 2 years. Most have picked up on the fact that elitists like Obama want them to foot the bill once again for the layabouts.
And, if that's not bad enough his associates are criminals and racists.
Furthermore, he may be a closet Muslim. He certainly seems like he's in the tank with them like his friend, Odinga, in Kenya who signed an agreement with the Muslim radicals. Obama supported this guy and meddled in the Kenyan presidential election. When Odinga lost 1,000 Christians lost their lives and their churches in the violence.
And, finally, the big one = Obama asked the Iraqis to halt the withdrawal of American troops until after the election.
Sucka should be in jail = traitor!!!
Every criticism of Obama is due to racism, isn’t it? Imagine if he gets elected, what we’ll have to listen to for the next four or eight years. “You don’t like Obama’s tax policies ? You’re a racist!”. “You don’t like Obama’s cabinet appointments? You’re a Klansman!”. They will tell us that there is no such thing as principled opposition, just racism in disguise. We can’t let this happen.
No doubt. I wonder how the core Democrats are handling the fact that Obama is handing the Republicans the voters on a silver platter.
I know I am.
Surveys like this one appear designed to elicit the types of responses that can most easily be characterized as racism. In these surveys, respondents are forced to generalize about race and to reduce complicated subjects to simplistic black/white answers. And then the liberal media uses these induced generalizations as (gotcha!) proof of racism.
According to this article, the statement that “if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites” is considered latent prejudice and whether people believe blacks’ troubles are their own fault is a measure of racism.
But studies have shown repeatedly that the single biggest correlating factor to the cycle of government dependency and low income in African-American communities is illegitimacy, which is now 70% among African-Americans. And that being raised by a single mother is a strong correlative factor for future crime and failure at school and in the workplace. Whose fault is it if young black women have multiple children out of wedlock and these children are raised without a positive father figure in their lives? How is that the fault of anyone but themselves? Babies generally are made the same way now as they always have been. (The same applies of course to the 50% of hispanic illegitimacy and the over 20% of white illegitimacy.)
The liberals apparently believe it is irrational for people to hold the view that someones behavior and actions should have consequences for that person.
Lazy is a loaded, pejorative term. Is it an irrational term to apply to an able-bodied person on a government assistance program in a time of relatively low unemployment? Most blacks are not on government assistance programs and most blacks are not violent criminals. But a significantly higher percentage of able-bodied blacks are on government assistance programs than the percentage of all Americans. And a much higher percentage of blacks have committed a violent crime than the percentage of all Americans. If someone, forced to generalize and thinking in terms of deviation from average, uses terms such as lazy and irresponsible and violent in a survey, is that person a racist or has the survey been designed to find as much racism as possible?
There was never any downside to Barack. If he won, the Democrat National Committee’s print/audio/video division would be extended long into the future. If he lost, the default template “racism” would kick in until they hoisted their next “victim” to victory or they went out of business.
Why does everything have to be reduced to race? There’s nothing wrong with Obama’s “race”, there’s plenty wrong with his political views.
If it gets polarizingly ugly, these statistics will prevail.
