Why is it that politicians don’t think before they open their mouths? What is actually worse it the latent racism that exists even in those who claim that they are not racist.
The latest victim of this is Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader.
In a recently released book, “Game Change”, by Journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Reid said privately that Obama, as a black candidate, could be successful thanks, in part, to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
Reid, who is facing a tough re-election bid, immediately apologized to President Obama, who accepted the apology without question.
In his apology statement Reid also said
“I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”
“I was a proud and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama during the campaign and have worked as hard as I can to advance President Obama’s ..continue reading
Former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt is providing a peak behind the curtain of the McCain campaign.
They were scared shit that Palin would screw up the debate with Joe Biden and have a major meltdown.
According to CNN “What was most troubling, according to Schmidt, was the fact Palin repeatedly confounded Biden’s name during the preparation process, referring to the then-Delaware senator as Sen. O’Biden. Aides were so worried that such a mishap in the actual debate would prove catastrophic that they advised her to simply refer to her opponent as “Joe.”"
In an interview that will air on 60 Minutes this weekend Schmidt reveals that “Palin’s debate preparations were going so poorly that campaign aides feared the closely-watched debate could prove to be a “debacle of historic and epic proportions.”
This was to be the next VP and she couldn’t even get Biden’s name right.
There is a God out there who made sure ..continue reading

No not that Palin.
Bloomberg reports that 19 year old Bristol Palin has registered to set up a public relations firm, BSMP LLC.
This twit who has been running around the country preaching abstinence after having a baby with then boyfriend Levi Johnston beleives she is qualified to run a PR firm.
Who would hire her? There are probably enough Palin lovers out there to make sure she doesn’t fail.
Only in the USA. I love this country.
The Blackwater saga never ends when it comes to murder.
According to CNN “Two men who worked as security contractors for the company formerly known as Blackwater have been charged with murder in the killings of two Afghan men, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.”
“Christopher Drotleff and Justin Cannon are charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted murder each in connection with the May shootings in Kabul. The 12-count, 19-page indictment returned by a federal grand jury in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia also includes weapons charges against the two men.”
“Drotleff, Cannon and two other contractors, Steven McClain and Armando Hamid, were involved in a shooting in Kabul on May 5, 2009, that left two Afghan civilians dead and another wounded. The men had been hired by Paravant, a subsidiary of Xe, the controversial military contracting firm formerly known as Blackwater, to help the U.S. Army train ..continue reading
Republicans and conservatives always claim that they own the rights to certain words.
In recent years it was security, homeland defense and patriotism. The Republicans wanted Americans to believe that they know more about these, they are the only ones who understand these.
Of course this is pure bull.
Now their latest word game is terrorism, terrorists, war on terror and counterterrorism.
They have been pounding Obama since the attempted airline attack on Christmas Day. Obama can not bring himself to say the word terrorism, does not believe in the war on terror and on and on.
They are using the same tactics they used for months in lying to Americans about health care reform.
Repeat the lies over and over again and more and more people will believe it is true.
Unfortunately this is the truth in this country. Especially for those who depend on Fox news for their information.
The reality is that President Obama has ..continue reading
