.....economic mess the Bush Administration left him. Yet these are the same people who want to return to the failed supply-side economics that got us into the Great Recession to begin with. If the Right-Wingers are concerned that Obama is turning the Presidency into an imperial presidency, blame Bush. He set all the precedence as a power grabber. 9/11 gave him all the justification he needed. It is not opinion alone that makes one a racist. It is whether one supports policies and institutions that reduce or widen the racial gap. Whether health care, incarceration rates, mortality, wealth accumulation, most whites in the Right-Wing GOP favor public policies that hurt Blacks and most underclass whites as well. It is truly an equal .....

As a conservative white middle class male (aka the antichrist the white devil etc etc) I jusr want to thank the liberals for reminding me almost dailey for my entire life that I'm a racist chauvinist pig. Not sure how to explain that to my 9 year old daughter who is half Asian. No she isn't adopted to answer your unasked question. I'm surprised more white men haven't gone nuts and there haven't been even more public shootings. Especially after a lifetime of brow beating by Hollowwood liberals, libtard activists and 30 year's of the communist news network.

Dear Miss Zen, a suggestion.

You might consider changing your "handle" to "Airhead." It would be more fitting than the calmness contained in the concept of "Zen."

I continue to be amazed at how well and often you people who have nothing going for you can dodge an issue and pass the buck. " can blame Bush," is a phrase that is inserted when there is absolutely no way to claim credit for anything good,-as the result of a president who has no inkling of what it takes to lead and motivate, and as you, who also blames a Congress that has been predominantly Democrat most of his term.
Obama, the product of William Ayers, a terrorist and a Grand Master Racist, Jeremiah Wright, Is actually reacting to his position as anyone mature and sane should expect a man to.

Typical dramatic assertions. "It is not all about race. It is also about gender, sexual orientation, xenophobia, and other Right-Wing positions on the issues."
IF you believe these things to be true, then there is no point in discussion. A huge percentage of blacks BELIEVE that the white man (conservative) is the cause of all of their problems. Talking oneself blue will change nothing.

Please site the sources for each of your mean points. Thanks.

Political pundits often refer to the time we’re in now – a few weeks out from an election – as the “silly season.”

It’s a time for obsessing over gaffes real and perceived, faux outrage over harmless statements and a general sense of desperation on the part of one candidate or perhaps both. This cycle’s silly season started early, which is to be expected when the challenging party picks its nominee early and the incumbent party has no record of success to promote. But that early start means we sometimes run out of “silly” early and head straight to desperate –...
