    During her last visit to Italy Nancy Pelosi was granted a visit with the Pope.

    The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice!"

    Pelosi replied, "I seriously doubt that. With one little wave of your hand? Show me."


    So the Pope slapped her.

    Using Fox news to make it OK to call minorities racist, and then implying that Fox news is biased. Is that the pot calling the kettle black?

    For anybody who thinks Fox is unfairly reporting the news, I can reccomend any number of books from long time lefty and CBS insider Bernard Goldberg. Link.

    I flip the channels and I 'watch' a little of the stuff that I do not normally pay attention to.

    There are some people, newsreaders, news programs and channels who have pushed the idea that BO's popularity decline is part of a racist ideal in the country.

    I heard an audio clip of a internet talk show where Adam Carrola and John Salley -the former a TV/radio show host and Salley a former pro basketball player- were discussing politics.

    Salley asked Carrola "Why do white people hate BO now?" Apparently JS heard the hens on The View talking about BO's falling approval numbers and it angered him leading him to the assumption that all of "white America" hates the prez.

    It has nothing to do with white, black or anything like that.....

    IT's all a matter of politicians talking smack, getting elected and being called out about what they promised to us then and what they have delivered up to now.

    Instead of staying at home, closing Gitmo, sending/bringing home troops, working on a HCR bill or battling racism at home, BO is out trying to get his home town the Olympics in '16-

    LOL, Oh, I may be a racist because I want my president to stick around the house and work, not travel all around the planet, tape five segments for Sunday talk shows on 'company' time, fly around the country selling out the people that elected him to lead the country, not ignore it and sell it out by apologizing to every country for us being jerks.

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


    I was listening to Rachel Madcow and two times in the last few days she
    has been touting ACORN and what the wonderful work they have done. (Tonight's show was -The Rachel Maddow Show investigates the truth about the lies about ACORN). Of course, they might have done something good in all the time that they have been around, but I think the idea of giving 'pimps and prostitutes' loans for houses and excuses for importing 13 year old hookers is a little beyond belief. So what are the lies?

    When are we going to get the story from the people who worked the offices and offered people ideas on how to dodge any scrutiny by the feds or local police?

    I am waiting for the 'racism' angle in the case of the ACORN tapes. Really.

    I have to agree with you, Richard. Iran fires long-range missiles, we have a crisis in Afghanistan, and where is our dear prez? He's worried about getting the Olympics in Chicago! Now, I know he's from there, but geez! I thought he was the entire country's president, not just Chicago's. I guess he doesn't care what happens to our soldiers, does he? I didn't vote for the guy, but I was more than willing to give him a chance. He's getting about a D- in my book.

  9. Calling Fox fixed is calling the faked news Fox!

    I am not happy that Obama is going to Denmark. I rather hope Chicago does not get the Olympics (as I hope to be back living there by then!) My concern is that if he goes and does not get it for Chicago - the Haters will have something else to be snarky about.

    Well Sara, I know for sure that Michelle Obama is coming on friday and I can't wait to see it on TV. I do hope Barack Obama will come too. They will be SO welcome! I'm sure at least 95 % of Danes is happy with your new President - just think of the alternative!

    Actually?

    The country runs far more efficiently when he is out of the country.

    I tried to find this story on MSNBC's site and got nothing under 'Obama, tan" but got a hit on the AOL website. HMM, is that racism?

    Indeed, god will save us from imbeciles!

  12. Like I said...the haters keep looking for reason to justify their hate...

    And they do hate...don't they?

    Wonder why?????

    The President's personal polling numbers have always been high. They
    still are.

    I can understand, the bad economy, two unpaid for wars going on, failed
    Auto companies, and people losing their life savings, would tend to make
    people scared & upset. Who was watching the store the last eight years?

    Obama is getting all the anger directed his way.

  14. You know Liz...it is hard to counter irrational hate. Some people do not care what he has done, what he is trying to do or what others failed to do.

    All they know is they hate him. He is a marxist, communist, socialist, nazi, moron, imbecile and well...you know.

    That he was elected by a majority (unlike GWB in 1980) is irrelevant to the Haters. Obviously, they have a low opinion of the voters.

    The truth is...to the Haters...the rest of us... are not as smart as they are ---morons we are you know!

    All we can do is hope that some day we will be as smart as the Haters!

    And then we too can hate irrationally!

    When a long time liberal and CBS reporter calls Fox fair and actually makes a case for it, Im inclined to believe him. When the same lefty makes the case that the fix is in with the Main Stream News Media, again Im inclined to believe him. When a long time Clinton advisor does the same, once again Im inclined to believe him.

    Obama should be running our country, not running around campaigning, or trying to help out his friends in Chicago.

    We had 8 years of Irrational hate, that hate came with riots and violent protests. Those haters are now somehow rational? Why did they hate, after all they did hate?

    The New "irrational" hate is peaceful, respectful, and nonviolent. And OMG they are armed and nobody got shot.

    Really high numbers there.

    A bad economy made worse, not paying attention to whats going on in two wars, failing at bailing out two auto companies. Ford seems to be doing alright, wait, they didnt take the money. Yeah I can see why Obama is catching a lot of flack while he is off trying to seal the bid for Chicago, taking the family on vacations on our dime, and running around acting like he is still on the campaign trail instead of doing his job.

    So now maybe somebody can justify and explain why the hatred we saw over the last eight years, the riots, the destruction of property, and the assaults was rational hatred? And the Peaceful, calm, and respectful demonstrations we have seen this year are irrational?
