Mr. Will's race card.

"...Obama’s administration is in shambles, yet he is prospering politically. This may not, however, entirely be evidence of the irrationality of the electorate. Something more benign may be at work.

A significant date in the nation’s civil rights progress involved an African American baseball player named Robinson, but not Jackie. The date was Oct. 3, 1974, when Frank Robinson, one the greatest players in history, was hired by the Cleveland Indians as the major leagues’ first black manager. But an even more important milestone of progress occurred June 19, 1977, when the Indians fired him. That was colorblind equality.

Managers get fired all the time. The fact that the Indians felt free to fire Robinson — who went on to have a distinguished career managing four other teams — showed that another racial barrier had fallen: Henceforth, African Americans, too, could enjoy the God-given right to be scapegoats for impatient team owners or incompetent team executives.

Perhaps a pleasant paradox defines this political season: That Obama is African American may be important, but in a way quite unlike that darkly suggested by, for example, MSNBC’s excitable boys and girls who, with their (at most) one-track minds and exquisitely sensitive olfactory receptors, sniff racism in any criticism of their pin-up. Instead, the nation, which is generally reluctant to declare a president a failure — thereby admitting that it made a mistake in choosing him — seems especially reluctant to give up on the first African American president. If so, the 2012 election speaks well of the nation’s heart, if not its head." {More}

George Will has written a lot of crap in his day, but his latest philippic against Barack Obama might be his most disgraceful to date. It was disgraceful because Mr. Will used the race card to justify his partisan rhetoric. Reasonable people can argue over Barack Obama's accomplishments or lack thereof. (I have certainly had my own issues with the guy) As I have stated before, his presidency hasn't been Kennedyesque, but it hasn't been Nixonesque or Carteresque, either. I know one thing, after eight years of W he was a welcome change. (Pun Intended.)

To suggest that the only reason President Obama is leading Mitt Romney in the polls is because Americans have some soft spot for his race is laughable. I would submit to Mr. Will that Obama is getting grief from certain people in America because of his black half.

It would be nice, as Chris Rock once said, if a black man could get a job, be incompetent while doing that job, get fired from that job, and another black man could actually be hired to take his place. But we all know that's not the case. The black man in a high profile position as president is viewed by many as a black man first.  His accomplishments, no matter how great, won't matter to some folks, because of that one little issue.  

Yes, "managers get fired all the time", but they are fired because their team is losing. I would suggest to Mr. Will that this manager is not losing. At least half the fans of the team think that the manager is doing just fine. And, unlike baseball, the fans vote to keep their manager; not the owner of the team.

As if we didn't know...

OBAMA DECLARES HOW POOR PEOPLE: 'Need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office'... Developing...

DAILY CALLER: 'For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America'


Profiting? Profiting off black America? If "profiting" means spending TRILLIONS of DOLLARS for the last 50 years for virtually no advamcement for 99% of black Americans, then, well, the point of Obama's incompetence gets hammered home with more force than ever.

What a clown of a president he is.

No they can't, anyone who says anything against Obama is either a white racist or a Tom. Trust me I know, when he speaks I get tingles up my legs and think about Bill Clinton having babies with Martians.

Note: if it's the truth that everyone else is hiding or ignoring to not show Barry Boy as incompetent then they are double racists and we can use that dog whistle to make any word racist. Chicago, Angry and so on.

Temperamentally, George Will began his professionals life as a mid 19th century Tory, with all of the culturo-racial superiority and imperialist tendencies implied, and since then has regressed into an anti-modern paleoconservative ideologically indistinguishable from Pat Bucchannon. I've always thought that Will was born on the wrong continent in the wrong century and is almost as out of place in 21st Century America as would be a transplanted stone age hunter-gatherer. With every word he's publicly uttered since 2008, though he's shown that his views, always more archeological relic than modern pronouncement, fit far more comfortably in the discussions of centuries past than his own lifetime.

Field, this is depressing. The only time my depression lifted was when Obama was elected in 2008. I was crying with Jesse Jackson. In my mind, post-racial America had been born....SHIT!

The NEXT DAY I went into a deep depression. It's damn near impossible to be Black in America, and be happy for more than a day without waiting for the shoe of disappointment, despair and depression(the 3D's).

George Will reminds us Negroes that it's a bitch being Black in America because 'either way', white folks like Will will find faults at the lowest denominator.

For the life of me I don't know why any bm would want to be President.

With all of the psychological violence directed at a black President by the GOP and other racists, it just doesn't make any sense.

I think Obama has something wrong with his brain. I don't know if he is just a courageous man, or just a damn fool. Either way, there is something strangely admirable about him.

They are pissed that we are smarter than they think we are. We have longer memories than they thought. We actually know who it has been that hasn't done a damn thing to help America in the last 4 years. We actually believe them when they openly revel in the intent to make him fail. How dare us not blame Obama for their incompetence. How dare us not fall in line to become Greece or Spain. How dare us reject austerity. How dare us not want another Gilded Age. How dare us not be so stupid and hateful, so they can keep screwing us.

When will we learn.

You have fallen in line to become Greece and Spain. How do you think they got to where they are?

Greece and Spain can reject Austerity - then all entitlements end. If it weren't for Germany Greece and Spain would have been bankrupt and those ebt cards would have been empty already, it's on the way here, just wait.

In Spain they spent so much on entitlement programs and are so broke they are eating out of garbage cans.

In italy they gave the people two months off unpaid because the government is broke - why? All that free stuff over the years.

Screwing with you? What do you have that is on the line?

Robinson's in the Hall of Fame as a player. He's never going in as a manager. He was a model of perfect mediocrity. In baseball, numbers don't lie.

But it's very difficult to quantify a president. I'm just certain that being a Democratic president guarantees a certain level of intransigent opposition to President Obama, & being African-American adds to those numbers rather than subtracts from them. Few people vote for Obama because he's Black. I didn't, although I was moved to tears in the voting booth in November 2008. African-Americans are already overwhelmingly Democratic. My sister for some reasons never quite clear to me voted for Bill Clinton in 1996 & Al Gore in 2000. She thinks Barack Obama is Kenyan, socialist, secret Muslim.

Kennedyesque? Nope. No Marilyn Monroe sneaking into the Obama White House.

No Cuban Missile Crisis. Well, then again, there's an Iranian nuclear crisis. But Obama's content to let Iran become a nuclear power. Kennedy said NO to Cuba/Soviet Union.

There's common ground when it comes to driving business out of the ocuntry. Kennedy did it with the steel industry, even going so far as to have the Department of Defense buy steel from foreign producers.

Vietnam? Hmmm. Kennedy got the US in, and things went downhill from there. Obama seems incapable of learning the lesson, so he's allowing the Afghan military to shoot US soldiers at close range.

Kennedy: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

Obama: "You didn't build that."

I need you to vote like your ladyparts counted on it because these guys sure put the middle class through hell these last four years and decimated them.

Don't worry about Benghazi - we figured we had to lie to you because if you knew that they asked for security 4 times because of the previous 12 attacks and we denied it you might say Bin Laden is Dead but Al Qaeda is alive. I really want to give a shout out to the MSM for being traitors and helping cover up the scandal and death of Americans by terrorists...I mean workers compensation victims.


Oh and the economy? Heh!! 1.2 trillion deficit just this year baby Woo-hoo we are way over 16 trillion now - food stamps for everybody especially those black unemployed people. They are gonna need it with all the Hee-spaniks I let become official through the illegal back door-y'all understand I needed the votes. Speaking of unemployment - shhhhhh..don't tell anyone but due to overspending and China and pretty much the world not lending us any more money, we printed lots - that kind of drove the value of the dollar way, way, way down so there has to be some cuts and a lot more job losses, but it's ok - we told the Companies not to warn their employees as required by the Warn act that we got passed for the unions, that would really hurt the election so we will just borrow more money to pay the legal fees after and if we lose...who cares. It's all paper anyway and we can just blame bush.

Obamacare has how many new taxes and is already 3 trillion overbudget and doesn't insure 40 million people...shhhhh.....lets talk about that next year.

Now they show a tape that my friends at the MSM colluded and conspired to hide in 2008- they didn't want anyone to know I was racist.

Phew what a week. I can't wait until the debate tomorrow night I am just glad it's all democrats moderating otherwise they might throw some crazy questions in there like how the housing market crash started, what do I plan to do about rising food and energy costs, how avoiding the debt has helped or hurt us oh so many things to spin..spin..spin..

Field, your last paragraph is the most important, because it exposes Will's moronic premise: that Obama is "losing", or has "lost," because of some problem with his leadership. I want to find Mr. Will and rub his nose in Mitch McConnell's vow to make a "one-term president" his "highest priority."

People, particularly people with some claim to logic, who argue that Obama has "failed" against a totally obstructionist Republican party that puts politics ahead of country should be dismissed summarily. As unqualified to be part of the discussion.

I'm a member of American Mensa, which doesn't mean I'm wise, but perhaps it qualifies me as something other than an absolute moron. That said -

The people who just say (and have all along) that Obama is so awful (i.e. "a clown", etc.) are, in fact, racist - and that's whether they know it or not, doesn't matter. As Field mentioned, objectively Obama is just NOT all that awful, compared to lots and lots of Presidents - the one he replaced topping that list.

So, yes, if you just HATE Obama THAT much, you are a racist. (Well, that or you suck at math worse than I do, and that's bad.) And, no, thinking you are not a racist makes no difference. My girlfriend doesn't think she snores, either, but she snores like a goddamn freight train all night long, let me tell you.

I don't like politicians or politics in general, so I don't really have a pony in any race, but I can very honestly say the faults found with Obama are either a) utter fictitious bullshit, or b) half the fault of the conservatives who have sought to hinder him from day one - ignorant, unpatriotic, greedy, teabagging for Jesus racist bastards that they are.

Who knew they had affirmative action for Mensa members. No way in hell someone this stupid belongs to Mensa. Yeah, we know your girlfriend not admitting she snores is proof that anyone who doesn't like Obama is racist and you know this because you "are not a moron"

Greedy and unpatriotic - Yeah, yeah - I know you are the kind who thinks making money doesn't entitle you to it, but wanting it sure does. How come people like you never call anyone who wants someone Else's money greedy? Only the ones who want to keep their own as if you were entitled to what they earned?


By the way anyone who supports Obama must be completely stupid in math. I know this because my girlfriend farts even though she denies it and blames it on the dog.

If a black person has a job, some people expect that black person to be a Super Negro. If not super then at least magical.

Case in point, W hung around for eight years screwing things up. (Republicans don't mention him much, but they sure thought he should have stayed in office a second term.) O has not screwed things up; he's worked against great obstacles to get things moving in a better direction. So, no miracle yet, but some honest janitorial work cleaning up W's and the Republican's mess. But the Will's of the world don't think that's enough because a black man in the Oval Office should be better (in their minds) than any white man whoever claimed the office; a black man has to work harder for the privilege to govern because he was not born, as they were, to privilege. Nothing but white supremacist ideology moving here.

No, Mr. Will. Firing President Obama would not be a sign of colorblindness. Firing him would be a casebook example of White privilege ideologies in action.

Repost authored by Tosha Smith

If John McCain had lowered unemployment while cutting down the size of government, killed Osama Bin Laden, withdrew our troops from Iraq, oversaw financial reform that allowed the Dow Jones to raise over 5000pts, lowered the interest rates on Student Loans, helped implement mortgage protections, saved GM and other major corporations, while battling a Congress for 4 years that has made it clear tha...t their number ONE job is to thwart the goals of the President..... THE GOP WOULD CALL HIM THE BEST PRESIDENT IN MODERN HISTORY. So excuse me if I applaud the efforts and accomplishments of the man who beat John McCain and who accomplished these same feats while being called a "Nigger" , "Monkey" , having pictures of the KKK branding his wife published, having people threaten the lives of him and his children, and while being disrespected in the Halls of Congress and on National TV by elected members of Congress. If Reagan, both Bushes, and Clinton haven't solved all of our countries problems, then why does everyone expect President Obama to be able to do so in just 1 term. Black Tax is Black Tax. It's often said that a Black Man in America has to go above and beyond just to be seen as equal if they are to overcome the Stains of Americas Racist Past. How flawed must your thinking be if you can look at those accomplishments and not give the person credit for accomplishing them..... NO MATTER HIS SKIN COLOR or POLITICAL AFFILIATION. When I look at the 200+ accomplishments the President is responsible for, I ask myself one simple question. Why is he held solely responsible for all of the bad, but he is not given sole credit for any of the good? THE GOP is determined to make Obama do the heavy lifting to save the U.S. while simultaneously giving him NO CREDIT for the work he does or what he must overcome. Slavery is over, but the dynamics of power are still the same. Obama is seen as "The Help" . He is required to do more with less. He will never get credit for his efforts or accomplishments because at the root of it there is a deeper issue with Obama. He is a symbol with what is wrong with America. He is the embodiment of our ugly truth. We are a country that is still infected by Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Xenophobia, and a disdain for education. He was our attempt at being politically correct and proclaiming we have conquered the influence of our ugly past. We Failed. We Failed because the truth is not politically correct. Until we address the arrogance of our ignorance we will continue to suffer because the ignorance of our socially instilled prejudices. We all have them. All Races, Both Genders, All Religions. We all look for excuses to hold on to our beliefs, for the worst of reasons. Pride. We are afraid to admit we were taught wrong, have lived wrong, and are in the wrong. We would rather deflect the truth instead of respecting the truth. This election is not about Obama, it's about our core beliefs. Obama's accomplishments are not on trial..... WE ARE. We were not ready for a Black President. If we had been, then his accomplishments would have been enough. As a Nation we would have been smart enough not to be misled. Dr. King's Dream is still a Dream that is deferred. In November Obama will not be judged by the content of his character or his accomplishments. When they cannot assassinate the man, they assassinate his character. Maybe that is the only progress Obama's election has shown. Americans use to physically kill the leaders that stood for what's right, but today we simply kill their name. One day we will be ready to independently research the truth for ourselves before we make assertions about a candidate, but for many of us that day is not today and this Presidential Election may be decided by the arrogance of our ignorance.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you actually read the article or just accept its paragraph headings?

I stopped reading after the authors premise of saying that Iran would have to

"Before a country can begin the latter, it must break the IAEA monitoring seals on its uranium stockpile, which is also under constant camera detection.
- It must also kick out international inspectors, who currently have unfettered access to all of Iran’s nuclear sites."

I guess he didn't understand that the IAEA met with Iran in vienna as they were refused access to 16 locations with centrifuges.

He then goes on to state how Iran is not a threat to the US or Israel how does he do this? Oh by declaring the US spends a lot more than Iran does on the military and qouting Barak from 2009 who says that Iran isn't a threat.

Whoops, he left out how much of GDP Iran allots to terrorist funding or the fact that Ahmadinejad has continually declared he wants to wipe Israel off the map and they will cease to exist.

Not very good critical analysis on the part of the author.

The kicker though was this

"Even if Iran were pursuing nuclear weapons, Israel’s own stockpile—estimated at a several hundred high-yield warheads—ensures that Tehran would not engage in a first-strike. Those familiar with the Cold War doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) know that when confronted with the possibility of your own annihilation"

Right- Islam lives for attainment of goals in the afterflife; MAD only works on those who value this life. Just ask any of the scores of suicide bombers.

You couldn't have possibly read this, either that or you are a lot and I do mean a lot dumber than I thought. Its gradeschool logic with immediately recognizable nonsense.


Here forget what he said read the IAEA report yourself.

Lets hear it. People like you always have a negative on what someone else should think, but never offer a solution. What should Obama do, now that we know apologizing and bribing them doesn't work.

Hey Frustrated Negro,
Nigerians aren't attacking anyone, yet Muslims are slaughtering Christians nearly every week.

Why do you suppose that is?

Multiple sources have confirmed that about 25 to 30 Christian college students were massacred at a university in northeastern Nigeria late Monday night, causing Christians to pray for a “change of heart” among the extremist Islamist group Boko Haram to put a stop to the continued violence.

While there is speculation as to the motive of the massacre, sources close to the human rights watchdog Open Doors USA confirm that the massacre was performed by Boko Haram.

The killings reportedly occurred in the late night hours on Oct. 1, when masked gunmen went door-to-door in the off-campus housing section of Federal Polytechnic College in Mubi, a city in the remote Adamawa State in northeastern Nigeria.

Open Doors USA sources confirmed that the gunmen separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat.

Lets hear it.....

Neither of the two sides will listen or even dialogue with the rational political thinkers in this whole spectrum.. People like Gary Johnson ,or Ron Paul are quickly drummed out from having any discourse regarding much needed policy shifts.

Look at how Romneys campaign effectively MUTED Paul's message at the convention.

Look at how NO third party is allowed to debate. (Not since Ross Perot)

The answer is simple , and you ,and everyone here wants to avoid it , because of some infantile feud ism between black , white , republican, democrat.

The world IS NOT going to end IF we start pulling out of those areas...

These so called Democracy missions or "War on Terror" missions have to stop.

Just like we had to end Vietnam at some point...

Cause there's only 3 things as far as resolution goes theres no middle ground. You either ...1.wipe it out completely ...
2.ratchet down for another 20 yrs. Or
3. You leave...quickly or slowly

Whatever blood thirst America has should've ended with OBL

This war conflict now is just corporate profiteering and international political posturing at its core.

To continue with the Sham of Democracy building ...or War on Terror after OBL is a crap load , and you know it.

Screw that power vacuum theory especially if we keep funding rebel groups who later on turn out to be enemy's.

End the War on Terror
End the War on Drugs
Overturn Citizens United

Those 3 things will set the country back on the right course.

Finding a politician willing to support those 3 things is like a 4 leaf clover .. unicorn; etc
