Truthfully, both are outrageous. When someone with GOP ties does such things, it makes it easier for the Dems to allege we’re all racists. And the Press is happy to report it as fact.

Bush was called a chimp for eight years.

Wouldn’t most leftists, who reject Creation, say that the poster was scientifically correct?

Columbia Mayor Bob Coble appears to have seen no clear jest at all. He told WIS10: "You know, I think the comment is inappropriate. It's a racist comment."

Probably so, Bob. Deal with living in an imperfect world.

Don’t continue to reinforce the notion to the left that all they have to do is call us “racists” and we’ll stop criticizing them.

That’s right, Bush the Chimp and nobody complained. But this is also why the press, and everybody else spends so much time assuring each other that the very very average looking Michelle is “beautiful”. To do otherwise could be evidence of latent racism.

I myself would not have made this comment, or the Letterman “rape” ones either.

I predict by the end of the day, the MSM will be obsessed by this political NOBODY's Facebook comment when we have a current Vice President who said "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," while referring to Obama during the primary race. As far as I'm concerned, that's the same or insinuating that Jessie Jackson "is not" articulate and bright and clean or a nice-looking guy. How does a white American male get away with saying something like that???

I would not have made these kind of comments about either the Bushes or the Obamas.

But it is ironic - and striking - that the media seldom if ever mentioned the Bush hatred, and now is looking for any reason to tag Obama opponents as “haters.”

Most Americans don’t even know that a book, a play and a movie were made depicting the assassination of George W. Bush, while he was president. Would the media treat any similar work about Obama the same way? To ask that question is to answer it.

I’m not. To the contrary, we can and should criticize them for each misstep, for each disasterous policy and bill, for each betrayal of the people and nation. We just shouldn’t make it easier for them to undermine us.

Is it me or does the press characterize any GOP member involved in any controversy as being “prominent” even though we have never heard of them? Maybe it’s me.

Every time a liberal really screws up in public, the democrats MORAL EQUIVALENCY RESEARCH SQUADS take to the field, rooting out republican acts of transgress, minor or major, that they can blow up and exaggerate to cite examples of “they do it too”.

The media not only aid and abet these witch hunts, they lead the way as the faithful suckling servants of the dishonest left.

In that photo, all bochelle was missing was her (BET b-ball cap on backwards,a BET silk jacket)and a raised clenched black gloved fist salute.

Have you noticed that the FR has attracted quite a few of those obumo metro-sexual anarchists floating trolls lately?

As it goes, a picture “says a thousand words.”

"I'm sure it's just one of Michelle's ancestors - probably harmless."

That's mean. I've always thought of gorillas as cute.

My opinion: both the "Michelle/gorilla" and the "let's have some perverts jump Sarah's children" comments were inappropriate. Letterman was far worse, but both were completely out of line.

The person who posted the comment is an idiot. Always assume that ANYTHING you post on the Internet, even a “private” email, will eventually be read by everybody.

I think Eddie Murphy was very close to reality when he related his cookout experience with his Uncle Gus.

“Your wife’s a bigfoot, isn’t she Gus. You shaved [her] down and taught her to speak.”

Instead of saying the escaped gorilla was one of Blackie O’s ancestors, he should have said the gorilla had escaped to knock-up Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia.

Your comment is a revelation into the cowardice within most of the Republican leadership. “Truthfully”???? Absolutely not. There is nothing truthful about the comment you made. When you are so consumed with fear and concern over what a liar would blame you of regarding a comment you would make, you'll consequently never wind up saying anything of any value. And you certainly couldn't be counted on to tell the truth when it was sorely needed.

There are no black or white apes. Thus to tie a racist label to the comment is stupid and intentionaly fraudulent. The lie proffered regarding the comment being racist is deliberately to hide a greater truth.

The basic position of most of the left is anti-religious/anti-creationist/pro-Darwinist. Their belief is that man evolved from apes. The comment from the activist has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the belief system of liberals ie... if you evolved from the ape, then the ape has to be your relative.

The persistent position of a liar is that no matter what you do, they will lie to oppose and discredit you no matter how careful you are. They will correspondingly compromise you into ineffectiveness.

The appropriate and ONLY antidote to this position is to grow a pare and give it back to them. Something limp-wristed Repubs and “Conservatives” have been negligent in doing.

Your comment that the activists statement was somehow “inappropriate” is a false statement, playing right into the hands of the lying left.

My recommendation to you is pull your head out of your A$$, get some whevos, and stop being a wuss.
