    Accusing him of raising taxes when he actually cut taxes for 90% of Americans?

    Calling him a socialist?

    Tea Bag Rallies now? After 8 years of the GOP doubling the debt?

    Texas talking about Seceding?

    Not even 100 days into Obama's presidency? Come on guys. We didn't want to cry racism before it was clear that is what it was, but now its getting rediculous.

    The Media didn't care what Bush did in his first 100 days, did they? He had already set a record for vacation days at this time. :lol:

    Seriously, the GOP and their attacks are starting to come off as pathetic. Is it possible that they have a hard time with a black running the country?

    Because God forbid that a God-fearing “Merican should have to accept a black man as their president and commander-in-chief. Without even allowing time for any of his policies to work or fail and within the first 100 days of Obama’s presidency, the Governor of Texas is hinting at secession of his state for reasons that are unclear. I think we all know what “states’ rights” is code for here. The last time Southerners starting bleating about “oppression” and “states’ rights” was during the battle to desegregate.

    Everyone knows to say anything bad about a black person is racism.

    What do any of their complaints about Obama have to do with racism?

    None that I can see.

    They're partisans, certainly, but that doesn't make them racists.

    No. We're noticing a huge difference here. The way the right wing of this country is ready to secede over obama's radical agenda!!!!!!

    Are they/you insane, or is it that he's black and that is the real bug up your butt.

    And boy has the press done a 180 on how they report or what? All of the sudden they are being watchdogs again.

    Bush wouldn't have gotten away with all that he did if the press was on him like they are on obama.

    First 100 days my ass. Just keep waiting for him to fail. You'll be waiting 8 years. Then you can blame what Jeb Bush does on Obama's socialism. :eusa_liar:

    Seceding from the union? These southern politicians aren't going to come out and call him a N*&#$( you know.

    I heard a black guy explaining this on NPR. I can't remember all the examples he used, but it is very odd the way the GOP is attacking Obama.

    But I will admit, it wasn't much better when it was Clinton.

    But damn, ready to secede after the guys only been in office for 100 days? Rediculous.

    'We will be called haters, and we are,' Phillip Dennis, a Texan resident, told one such rally.
    'We are haters of big-spending politicians. We will be called racists, and we are – we are members of the human race,' he said as the silent crowd broke out into cheers.
    Later he added: 'The conservative sleeping giant is awake. He is awake, and he is hungry... We will not go gently into socialism – at least not here in Texas.'

    An unpublished report by the Department of Homeland Security this week warned that the country faces a growing threat from right-wing extremists angry at the state of economy and the election of a black president.

    You haven't heard one thing about people being mad that we have a black president. Let me ask you Editec, do you think they don't exist? Where are they?

    My guess is they are the people at rallies like the tea bag rally.

    One can intuit that they are motivated by racism, but making that claim without supporting evidence of their overt racism makes you look like a hysteric.

    Remember that plenty of the sons of the South have wanted to secede from the union while White Presidents were in office, too.

    Their desire to break from the union MIGHT, but doesn't have to be, based on the current president's race.

    I agree with Editec. None of those statements, either in isolation or as a group, indicate any racism.

    I suspect that you'd see the exact same thing happening if Obama were a white president.

    It may be that some making these statements have racist motivation, who knows, but the statements are just political and not racist.

    The left is much more obsessed over color than the right has ever been.

    Remember, it was the right who introduced abolition. Not the left. Remember, it was the right who insisted that the color of a man's skin had nothing to do with anything. Not the left.

    The left, however, embraces eugenics, segregation and affirmative action.

    I think it's pretty obvious which group has a "bug up their butt" about color.
