tallmike - I would never presume to speak for the eloquent Tuco but those of his political and philosophical ilk consider any criticism of Obama racist - because he is black - which to me is paradoxically racist on their part.
Criticism is not racist. I have criticized Obama. Questioning the validity of the first African American President on his place of birth even though it was proven before he ran for President that he was native born, trafficking in a conspiracy theory that had been completely debunked except in the racist minds of those who would never accept an African American as a possible president is racist. Saying that those of my political and philosophical ilk consider any criticism racist is racist. The Electoral College was created to protect slaveholders. The Revolutionary War was fought to protect slavery. Saying that it wasn't or accusing "those of his ilk" of being paradoxically racist is racist.
But I will "accept" your argument that Trump is not a racist for questioning "criticising" Obamas birthplace. Explain away the other two examples. Please.
Not related to the current discussion, perhaps, but here's Adlai Stevenson back in the 1950's: "In America, anyone can become president. That's the risk you take."
hehe Adlai was a little wrong there unless he meant anyone who is at least 35 years old and native born.
tuco, Obama declared his candidacy for POTUS on February 10, 2007. By then he himself had been representing for more than 15 years that he was born in Kenya as I documented yesterday. During the first several weeks of his candidacy, his publisher's website still proclaimed him as having been born in Kenya.
How can you describe a contradiction of Obama's own making as a conspiracy theory? Was Obama conspiring against himself? I don't get it.
A publisher's eror is not of his own making...http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama\n/birthers/booklet.asp
Thank you, MarindasDad! Was going to post the same link! TallMike, please learn what research is before spouting off.
Yeah, TallMike. Learn what real research is all about!! Like complete BS sites aka Snopes.com where Hillary does her fact checking ... lol. SJWs = Stupid and proud of it.
yeah - that's right. The publisher is racist too!
And snopes.com is THE final authority on everything.
And now Hillary blames Comey for her loss.
We can only hope (but most like futile hope) that the Clintons
will shut up and go away.
Not so easy. Some loners. Some pairs. NGNG. 24.
Clinton's loss should be squarely placed upon her own shoulders. Instead of focusing on a positive message she spent the last month or so making the case that Trump was unfit to be President. Focusing on her opponents faults just made the voters think about her faults. To Trumps credit his claim of Making America Great Again seemed like a more positive message and was enough to win him enough Electoral Votes.
This still does not change the fact that Trump is a racist misogynistic narcissist who had to be put on a $450,000 a month allowance after going on a wild spending spree and running his businesses into the ground. http://www.nytimes.com/1990/06/26/business/qu\nick-who-d-have-trouble-living-on-450000-a-mon\nth.html
