    "I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude."

    I wonder why Obama kept Dr. Racist Wright on his staff for over a year?

    Which, once again, has nothing to do with the point raised.

    You have this really goofy habit of deflecting to a totally different subject...

    try responding to what was said occasionally.

    Now, see if you can't do that....

    But tell me, is this issue going to cost Senator Obama your vote?

    lol... lol... lol... lol... lol...

    He stated at the top of the page if he had a staff member that made racist comments, he wouldn't be on his staff anymore. Umm..let me think here yeah I think Dr. Racist Wright cost my vote....LOL

    Obama shot himself in the foot on this one. He finally appealed to the christians by getting rid of the whole Muslim issue, then all this? Not that I was voting for him anyway, but if I had, his buddy would change my vote.
    They should make a movie about this, it should star David Spade and....oh, never mind.:sad:

    Well, like you said, you wouldn't have voted for him anyway.

    So I'm sure he won't be overly upset.

    Jillian, do you honestly think Obama can win the general election now?

    First, you'd have to ask me if I ever thought he could. I've always said that he needed to be VP first so middle America could get over the race thing. But I'd vote for him against McCain unless he failed to clarify certain issues.

    On the other hand, it's real early and this will be gone in a couple of news cycles unless the ridiculous right keeps it going. So who knows?

    If it stays in the news now doesn't really matter. If Obama gets the nomination it will come back. I never thought Obama could beat McCain and this just makes that belief stronger.
