    It will be very hard for the Repugs to back step on remarks made on Saturday against African-Americans Congressmen and Gay Congressmen that were made by Teabaggers.

    For to long, members of the GOP openly embraced the baggers, and even during the Presidential Campaign neither Grampy or Caribu Barbie took action when individuals attending their rallies yelled out "Kill Him" at campaign rallies.

    When your political leadership lays down in cow plop, it tends to stick.

    First, the voices in Rep Lewis head are nobody's problems but his own.

    Second, even if someone did say it, Wahh, Grow the fuck up

    Third, Palin kids take more flak in a day than any of you fuckers take in a year so again, Wahhh, grow the fuck up

    Fourth, this is about the 30th thread on this topic so again, Wahhh, grow the fuck up

    that would explain the content of your post.

    44 - McCain Campaign Condemns Backer's Obama Remarks

    There was a rumble of disapproval from the crowd when McCain defended his Democratic rival. "I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States," McCain said.

    When a woman referred to Obama yesterday as "an Arab," McCain cut her off and seized the microphone from her hands. "No, ma'am," he interjected. "He is a decent family man with whom I happen to have some disagreements." In fact, the most rousing applause of the afternoon came not for McCain, but for one of several questioners who appealed to the candidate to "fight" in next Wednesday's final debate with Obama.

    "If you want a fight, we will fight," McCain replied. "But we will be respectful. I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments. I don't mean that has to reduce your ferocity. I just mean to say you have to be respectful."

    Supporters jeer as McCain calls Obama 'a decent person' - The Boston Globe

    SCRANTON – The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded.

    However, he cautioned that at the McCain rally, "no Secret Service agent overheard any threatening statement and no threatening statements were reported by law enforcement or the general public."

    "We did make some inquiries after the Washington Post reported on Tuesday that a someone had yelled 'kill him,'" he added.

    If you, as person attending and/or participating in a rally where racial offensive remarks or slurs are made, refuse to take action against the person and/or persons making such remarks, you are by your own inaction supporting such remarks.

    It's called "Silent Assent."

    And from every account I've seen the person/persons making those remarks were told by others at the rally to stop. Thanks for disproving your own statement.

    So I guess when you are at a hockey game and an unruly group of people in the blue seats tosses beer on the poeple below, you run up to the guys who did it and give them a peive of your mind even if it was not even close to where you were sitting?

    And if you dont, we should assume you agree with their actions?
