The host of "Face the Nation" -- flush with anger -- called Donald Trump a racist.

Bob Schieffer appeared Wednesday night on "The CBS Evening News" and reacted to Trump's latest salvo against President Barack Obama, in which Trump suggested the Prez might not have had the grades to get into Harvard Law School.

Schieffer said, "That's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."

Earlier in the day, Trump said, "I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can't get into Harvard.  We don't know a thing about this guy.  There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our President."

Whites and Asians have to have higher scores than Blacks to get into Harvard. So even with the lower score requirements for Obama he still didn't get into the school as a freshman. If anything is racists its Harvard admissions system. Trumps has nothing to do with that. It rumored that Obama grades weren't that great in college. Then how was he able to get a transfer to Harvard. Legitimate question. Why won't Obama release his grades? George Bush, Al Gore, and John Kerry released there college grades. What is Obama hiding? Here is Kerry's grades at Yale: Kerry at Yale First Year Courses: 61 in Geology (grade of D) 63 and 68 in History (grades of D) 69 in Political Science (grade of D) Later Year Courses: 79 in Political Science (grade of C) 77 in French (grade of C) Senior Year Courses: 89 in Political Science (grade of B) Source: Boston Globe, June 7, 2005

This is the crux if the Campaign for 2012,
anyone who criticizes Obama is a racist and
anyone who doesn't vote for him must be too.

Obama incites hatred and for that alone he must go.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I feel that's where we are headed and its disheartening.

I just love how Trump hasn't even announced running for prez and already the press is calling him a racists. Why doesn't Schieffer ask Obama if he thinks Trump is a racists? Note to Schieffer, the american people aren't as stupid as you think. How about a doing stories about gas prices, the war, unemployment, 15 trillion deficit, homeless, etc.

Trump is trying to say Obama was not entitled to go to Harvard. I say that notion works into Obama's favor against Trump. Because it makes Obama look more like an average middle class person that had to struggle and needed some breaks like most of us have and need. Trump is a person who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Undoubtedly, Schieffer -not unlike the entire CBS News division-
chooses to subscribe to an antiquated, divisive, special-interest
serving, 1960...'s mind-set.

Pharaoh-supporters have long deemed ANY criticism of their A.C.O.R.N. "elected" politician, as "Racist" and/or place all
blame upon the previous Dictator.

Americans, of all colors, gender, and affiliations, are now
rejecting these played-out, unfairly biased and patently Anti-American practices, that Schieffer and CBS News still promote.

Obama inhereited all those problems from bush, Obama only took power in jan 09, this country started going down hill when bush was in power, the country was the greatest it ever was during the clinton years, aside from his affair to monica L. before someone points it out...

Get off your racial soapbox, MoonDust; Obama is disliked because he is a poor leader with failed policies that will bankrupt the next two generations of Americans if allowed to continue. I have zero doubt that if a black (or Indian, or native, or asian) president were elected and did a fantastic job with the economy, his approval rating would be through the roof. Racism is a niche in this day and age; some minorities need to stop using it as a damn crutch.

There is no end to Trump's ego or his big mouth. Keep at it, Trump, until there is no return road for you. You'll just be another Faux toadie.

Look all I ask, is that YOU or anyone show me the proof when others were asked in public for their BC, that is all, and then this can all die

All I need is a legit, not made up example, of just one person of a WHITE pres being asked for his BC like Obama has, that is all

Also MoonDust...you should educate yourself before shooting off your mouth. While the Iraq fiasco was Bush's doing, the housing collapse...the even that really tanked the economy worldwide...was the result of a Clinton policy. Clinton, libtard that he was, pushed the 'every American should be able to own their home' agenda to the point where he set policy to allow people who could not really afford mortgages to get them:

"In 1999, Fannie Mae came under pressure from the Clinton administration to expand mortgage loans to low and moderate income borrowers by increasing the ratios of their loan portfolios in distressed inner city areas designated in the CRA of 1977"

So you can thank a libtard Democrat just like Obama for that collapse in reality. It wasn't Bush.
