#33 the Beer Drinking guy....
"liberal talking points from The Huff ".....

Now that's imagination.....

how is it that a False War is a Talking point,...? and Kevin brings up a good question: What about that "phony war" or did all those people write all those books (including many from the Bush White house) for nothing?

I'm black and honestly I don't think the man meant any harm by what he said.. It was just in good fun..
besides, Obama doesn't care anyway.. why should he?
He's the president.. one of the highest honors in the world!
Overall this is a petty, childish situation.. the media will continue to try and stir this one up for awhile.. Oh well.. that's life..

Okay. I will specifically say he lied about a war that a bi-partisan congress agreed to start. Or more over what I mean is there were Dems that supported going to said war too. Anyways, stop YELLING you just sound like a moron.

P.S. I will keep on drinking my beer. It is the only thing that keeps one sane in this time and age of nasty politics played by Reps and Dems.

If I were a teacher I would correct the spelling from an "Ivy League" educated individual:

Very bright honey..... (SHOULD BE THREE DOTS ONLY OR ":")

College educated in fact,(The white man's worst nightmare) from an Ivy League school......can YOU say the same?
better yet....can you even SPELL "College"....
(Should be: I am college educated. In fact, (presumably the white man's worst nightmare) I am educated from an Ivy League university (three dots or or a period will suffice) can YOU say the same (insert personal comment, "Yes, I am college educated. And, yes sir, I can spell college. In fact, I can spell university and all sorts of neat words!")

KEEP DRINKING THAT BEER FOOL....

Whether 8.74% of soldiers in WWII were black or not ...and the percentage WAS higher...they were still "SINGLED OUT" (or did Spike Lee make that up also....?)and Segregated.....
Pretty much for the same reason it bothers You All so much that ONE IS IN CHARGE OF THE COUNTRY NOW......FOR TWO TERMS.

Keep "drinkin"......and keep "Glossin" over......
You're only fooling yourself....not me.

You all seem to forget that President Obama is 1/2 white and 1/2 black. George is blacker than he is. He is no bigot and we have to stop being so sensitive. Why aren't you people upset about the anti semitic, anti gay and anti women cracks made? I think we are all so politically correct that we have lost our sense of humor. I think the President would laugh at this.

Sorry to rain on your parade Kevin but my stat is accurate. That was the PEAK of African American involvment in WW2 and was reached in 1944. Don't feel bad... it's not your fault that your ancestors didn't have the balls to STEP UP and save the world... you just leave that to the white man. And yes, there was segregation back then. Thats the way things were... it was a dark time in our nations history, but hey, it's not like that anymore, so stop BITCHING!

And I could care less about the color of the presidents skin. It has nothing to do with the fact that he is an incompetent, lying a$$hole who has no idea what he is doing! You think he is gonna be in there after 2012 you are smoking crack buddy... his numbers are dropping faster than your boy GWB... LOOK IT UP

ok quite simply i dont care who is in charge, our entire government has lost touch with what the american people want or need. each politician tells people what they want to hear to get in office and stay. no longer is it about who will do the best job but who will screw it up the least.

in obamas case he is making us more socialist by the minute.

as far as all the race crap out there. there are racism on both sides. but it is all brought on by people who are stupid. the more you keep pointing out we are different the more people are going to continue to see people as different. and the al sharptons and jesse jacksons dont help. having all black colleges, scholarships, organizations etc only adds fuel to the fire because if it was all white it is considered racism. why is that? what is good for the goose is good for the gander where i come from. you got BET NAACP and so on. so get rid of the affirmative action and the rest of the crap and maybe it will help make things better. certainly would not hurt. but again cant fix stupid people.

personally i say you dont like it here get back on the boat, raft, or whatever you think brought you or your ancestors here and go back. if it is so bad here go "home". i guarantee as bad as it is here it is far worse other places.

If George Hamilton made a comment about Pres. Obama's skin color, it's cool with me. I think he meant whatever he said as a joke. There has been jokes about George Hamiltons color for YEARS!!! Infact he's even poked fun at himself. So for all of you that are hot under the collar, Black or White, move on! If anything at all, Pres. Obama got his color for free, while George Hamilton has been getting touch ups to keep his..and at what price? Oh..wait..stop the presses, I forgot to say that i'm not white and i can take a good joke for those that think blacks can't take jokes about themselves. We live in the past too much here in America, that's why we can't go forward.

Good point Billy, Good point...but what is it the Jews say: "Those that forget the past are doomed to relive it"? and IF THEY DIDN'T create the phrase, they definately adhere to it!
The issue is: White people want us to forget 300 years of history (AS IF..THEY WOULD) and that just isn't going to fly...
this man has been in office for 8 months and THEY CAN'T FORGET a statement to a PHONY PLUMBER about spreading wealth, and out of that Sean Hannity and the like Spun it into "OBAMA'S A SOCIALIST"..
I'M STILL WAITING FOR YOU ALL TO ELABORATE ON THAT FAKE WAR GEORGE W. BUSH SENT YOUR KIDS TO GO FIGHT...OBVIOUSLY NO ONE ON HERE HAD A RELATIVE GO OVER TO IRAQ...FOR NOTHING.....BUT I GUESS THEY DO "FORGET THE PAST" QUICKLY DON'T THEY?!?!?!?
