    You, and every other liberal has shut your brain off to the plight to small business that Joe the Plumber brought up. If you don't try to understand the difficulties a small businessman with tight margins feels, you will not.

    October Surprise - Michelle Obama Racist Rant! by Scooter Van Neuter — october surprise, michelle obama, phone tape | Gather

    This is just one article I found in a google. I also saw a youtube video and several other articles. Apparently she likes using the word "whitey" with a negative connotation.

    I also read something about the Republican party having a tape of a sermon she gave at Rev. Wright's church with several phrases denouncing "whitey".

    I haven't looked much into this. I find it interesting, but I think Barry has just as many questionable ties as Michelle. I wish they'd get examined more thoroughly by a major news network.

    i think she is and crazier than hillary to boot. i just hope she doesn't cause her husband the election...which many dems have said they will not vote for him due to his wife.

    You are real good at passing off your uninformed narrow ass opinion as fact. Are you even going to vote? You don't know **** and before you respond I could give a **** less what you think about what i said, just so you know.

    And your part about not getting what you put in is wrong. My family worked hard and now each one of us is successful. My mother doesnt even have any post secondary education and made something out of herself, because she put in the effort. Because someone doesnt want to do the "Disgraceful" jobs of flipping burgers, or concrete construction is not my fault. Hell, I will swing a hammer in a minute if I have to. But redistribution makes people ask why... when I can get the benefits for free.

    not what I am saying at all. In fact, my career drive is for the benefit of my daughter financially, so she will not have to struggle the way I had to growing up and early on, while on my own.

    Also, I am not a fan of a redistribution, my issue was with those saying "you get what you put in". Which is not always true, as I gave a prime example, after watching my father work himself to death, 7 days a week the majority of my life. He put in, and did not get nearly equal out.

    Wow. You seem to step in and blindly justify everything that is negatively said about Messiah Obama.

    Shoot, look at the attacks on Sarah Palin. I don't see the right justifying every little thing she does... in fact, they just do not care, and don't feel the need for every little thing to be justified.

    Since cognitive adulthood, I have not spoke that word, and don't allow people around me to utilize such negative influence. If so, I seperate myself from those people. I don't join in for the thrills of it.

    Unless we are saying Mrs. Obama hasn't reached conginitive adulthood, then I can see why you would justify her actions.

    I'm not sure why you and friends call each other that but you just proved my point. If someone says they hate a group, I think that makes things pretty obvious. Using a racial slur could very well be a incidental occurrence.

    There are no saints on this board and you know that if someone of a different race or ethnicity pissed you off, you thought or said that @#$#$@$. That doesn't make you racist, having hate in your heart for another segment of society does. My point from the begining of this segment was that there is nothing that any of you can produce to show that Michelle Obama has hate in her heart toward white people.

    :bruce3:
    Ahem...i posted no facts really as my statement was purely my personal opinion. You obviously lack the character in order to make judgement calls!

    I'm not registered to vote. On Oct. 6 I drove by the registration office and waved to a bird in the parking lot.

    Why might you ask is this such news? It's not. I just don't like any of the candidates. I think they are all weird and none of them are good enough to lead a horse to water, let alone a country in crisis.

    The solution? I'm thinking take that $700 billion bail out money and give everyone in the country a million bucks, put Mitt Romeny in charge, and let the good times roll. The economy would be back on it's feet. ****ing *******s who messed up the bank by charging outlandish interst rates....if you need an example see my truck....and then get a golden ****ing parachute from the bailout. No sir. Give me the money to pay off my loan thank you.

    If all else fails....when someone says "Why did you vote for that fool!" I can smile and say...."Which one?" and then tell them..."Oh yeah...I don't vote."
    All this of course is in you're favor since if I were to vote there is no way in hell I'd vote Democrat...hell i might just vote now in spite of you!

    “Any 20 year-old who isn't a liberal doesn't have a heart, and any 40 year-old who isn't a conservative doesn't have a brain.”

Most of my life he worked 7 days a week, usually going shop to shop, as well as driving all over NY and NJ going to peoples homes cutting hair. There was no way to better that for him, as he had a family to pay for, and make sure that they were taken care of. So again, not all of the poorer folk are taking advantage of the system.


    the bolded is just plain wrong. It is not with 100% certainty that it happens that way, as I just showed you in my example.

    If you dont like the Obama tax cuts, would you prefer more cuts to the wealthy? And if so, may I ask why? (Please dont break out into the trickle down nonsense however)

    Wow, aren't you fcuking silly. You ask:

    I google "Michelle Obama Whitey" and post a link that showed where his assumption came from. Apparently you have google-liberal which bars you from googling negative stuff about Obama. Then you respond with:

    WTF are you talking about? I have never used the N word to a black person or about a black person. In high school when it was cool, my white friends and I called each other by the N word, but I hardly think that qualifies as racist.

    Allegedly...I can't find the video that's said to exist, so I can't verify the truth in this...Michelle Obama used the word "whitey" several times in a speech at their church.

    However, what you said in the previous post makes me think that....you're minimizing a speech with racial epitaphs used in a negative demeaning manner.....at a church?

    It makes me wonder if this is the norm at that church. Obama was there 20 years. Apparently however, this isn't relavent?

Most of my life he worked 7 days a week, usually going shop to shop, as well as driving all over NY and NJ going to peoples homes cutting hair. There was no way to better that for him, as he had a family to pay for, and make sure that they were taken care of. So again, not all of the poorer folk are taking advantage of the system.
    Thats true, and guess what? Your dad managed to provide for your family and didn't expect $1000 a year from the government to be handed to him with him paying no taxes just because he happened to breathe did he?

    Even worse is the raw mathmatical stupidity of the obama tax plan. Those working class families will get an average of a whopping $15 more a week in their paychecks. Not quite enough for a family of 3 to go to mcdonalds. Yet the lawyer making 250k now will loose an extra 70k a year. You know the real effect of that? He'll fire a nanny, stop having his car detailed once a week, etc, and/or he'll raise his hourly rate. So the low end will get an insignificant amount of money, but also higher unemployment.

    And before you trot out Obama's letter by academic economists saying his plan is better, try and find some practicing economists who have actually skin in the game and ask their opinion. Funny, those are the ones backing McCain... And use yourself as an example. If you suddenly were making 10% less a year, would you just say "gee whiz I guess thats what I'm making now but i'll still spend the same", no you'd spend less, and try to find a way to make more, which is exactly what the 250k + a year people will do, and exactly what the corporations will do. All Obama's tax plans will do is move more of the middle class downwards closer towards poverty, and reduce their ability and incentive to move upwards

    forgot to mention that they'll also lower his/her employees wages...just another example of why you don't bite the that hand that feeds you.... btw!!!!!

    According to you. That's not how I see it. Its sounds more like a personal belief rather than broad economic fact.

    You seem to have a lot more information than I do, but I venture to say that, if any Democrats refused to vote for Obama, that decision would have very little to do with Michelle!

    Who is keeping it under wraps? If you are aware of it, then the Republican Party is certainly aware of it, too. Furthermore, if the thesis would shed any negative light on the Obama campaign, it would be naive to expect that the McCain campaign would remotely support keeping it under wraps until November 5th. On the contrary!

    managed to provide? He struggled until he died at 54. Did we have food and a roof, yes, however were there times as a kid where from my job I gave him $ to pay bills? Plenty. So it is not always you get what you put in.

    you and I both know that their are economists on both sides of the issue, so this point is not truly an issue right now. For everyone you come up with I come up with one. We would be wasting time, and at the end of the day I think both are illequipped

    you can doubt, but you'd be wrong. In a country of over 300 million, I'd be willing to bet there are a good 10-12 million who feel that way at least.

    Michelle's thesis is available here http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0208/8642.html , and is rather negative towards whites but i'm sure when you read it you'll just say its justified and she's not a racial separatist so it hardly matters.

    Of bigger concern is why Obama's own Columbia records were sealed? I think its because he only got in due to affirmative action and not because of grades, and he doesn't want that to come out. Although he did get into harvard on merit from what we can tell.

    You conveniently omitted the important qualifier I used: objective individuals! If one is biased, it is easy to lean either way. In a sufficiently biased and sufficiently large pool, it is easy to find your speculated 10-12 million.

    Pure speculation, Easy, but my point was that the McCain campaign would not hesitate to use it against the Obama campaign, if the content were that lethal. I have no interest in reading it, by the way.

    Affirmative action probably also get him elected the first Black president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review in 1990 (over 18 other contesting candidates and 61 non-contesting)! Let's stop trying to paint everything we do not like negative!

    again from you ike, selective vision. i said hr lrgitimately got into harvard but question what happened as far as his admission to his first college, and you throw in something irrelevant, what happened after he graduated colombia isnt in question, its how/why he got into columbia.

    beginings are important, like his political career beginning in the living room of an unrepentant domestic terrorist who still to this day says he would have done more if he wasnt an incompetent bomb builder

    And where did he state that was true 100% all the time in every situation? Its a personal belief...sort of a personal motto to go by based on what you believe the majority of the time will happen. Your one example isn't going to change that.


    I think the one reading into a bit much, is you. Relax..nobody is reading it right or wrong. You are assuming and so am I.

    As far as I selectively see, you are the one that selectively applies! All in a sudden, Columbia is all-important, and Harvard is irrelevant. You speculate about Columbia, and on that basis, question the man's entire character!

    How come no one is suggesting the entire Chicago is terrorist because Mr. Ayers was voted "Citizen of the Year 1997"? Why is no one insisting the 3000 professors that signed solidarity with Ayers lately aren't all terrorists? Selective perception!

    It is interesting that this thread originally meant to focus on Sarah Palin's USD 150K wardrobe. Within a few posts, it was spun against Mr. Obama and his campaign! Ingenious, but !
