Romney says to Obama :take your campaign of division, anger and hate back to chicago.Which in right wing nut code language means take your campaign back to N town you angry black man.
Question: Can someone with a D in front of their name use the word 'anger' without being racist?
The above is liberal for 'Oh crap our complaining about Mitt's taxes isn't working enough, and unemployment went up, and we are facing huge deficits, and Mitt has a record of a balanced budget, we need a new tactic! Race card!'
yeah the romney campaign is working really well, how many points ahead is he, both in voter intention and electoral vote count?and that is with the lousy economic numbers we had recently so if there is any uptick in the economy he might as well just quit and start campaigning for 2016.
But, Congress is working hard to make sure the economy will not improve.
Sorry but the race card has been being played by the republican campaign for a long time already the only difference is the whistle blowing technique they use to reach the racist and bigoted elements who are in control of their base now.
Um...isn't that what the Republican party has been throwing at Obama since the day he was elected? I don't see his campaign as being one of division, anger and hate.
I wouldn't say it was racist just dishonest and pandering.
no not everywhere, and I still watch that great moment in political history when John Mc Cain stopped that woman saying obama is an arab and corrected her,the right wing loons still haven't forgiven him for that, and a few weeks ago he stood up in defense of Huma Abedin when she was being maligned by michelle " the swiss miss" Bachman. but unfortunately the people in control of the republican party today do like to resort to dog whistle rhetoric , and when they say take your campaign of anger, they are calling obama an angry black man, and when they say chicago you don't have to ve too keen to know what they mean it's not only what they say or how they say it but who says it , and these guys have a record of engaging in these tactics, the reverend wright deal, the paling with terrorists, the birther issue still kept alive by the likes of joe arpaio and trump, the kenia chapter.Hannity is now trying to associate the obama campaign with the threats of violence by the new black panther party in the republican convention.
Obama is FROM Chicago. White people get angry, too. I know there are plenty of racists on the far right, but I honestly don't believe Romney is one of them. I haven't heard Romney mention the birther issue. Did I miss that? Would you provide a link?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to0ECI94 … detailpage . Romney may not be racist but my point is that he tolerates the racist tactics of his supporters
Trump is an idjit. You don't think any Obama supporters are less than savory??
I'm sure there are but the problem with the republican campaign is not that there are some despicable individuals mixed in but that the whole campaign is being overlooked and oriented by the likes of that toe sucking weasel Dick Morris and people of that ilk.And as I said before I hope the republican defeat is so overwhelming that after the election all these varmin drive off into the sunset and people like Chris Christie, and all those big tent party republicans can come out from hiding and start rebuilding the party to the benefit of the whole country.
Lets remember that the Republicans plan a coup d'etat in November by disenfranchising about 5 million qualified voters. They don't care what they say or do in their campaigns.
So that means we better work hard to register 6 million voters and make sure we get out the vote,let's not wait until aFTER THE ELECTION AND CRY ABOUT IT, for every vote they disenfranchise let's register two.
Once again you and your readers make some very good points. The hard truth right now, today is that the Republicans appear to be having good success in getting voters to take their side. I have been talking with too many otherwise intelligent people who say that they plan to vote Republican. Their support for Romney appears to emanate from (or fall into) three separate categories. The first reason has to do with their utter dislike of President Obama (much of which is a function of a kind of racism that they themselves do not even realize or understand that they have. The second category or reason is greed, insofar as they fall into the class of folks who will derive great economic benefit from the Republicans planned economic, tax and other policies.
The third category is the most disappointing group because these are the people who are being duped by the deceptive and straight-out dishonest torrent of (there is no better word) PROPAGANDA that is overwhelming the airwaves. These people are just too lazy to take the time to think and sort through the BS for the truth.
It is probably going to come down to convincing this third group to really think long and hard as to what is in their best interests and what is in the best interests of the country. And to be more specific, it will be this third group most crucially in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. In Ohio and Pennsylvania it will be the working middle class who (for example) will need to understand that it was Obama who saved their Auto industry jobs…contrary to Romney’s claim that it was his idea. And in Florida, seniors better figure out that it is Obama’s plan for Medicare that will save their health insurance…not Ryan/Romney.
I am actually stunned that in this day and age, that it still holds true that the more often and the bigger the lie that the Republicans repeat, the more acceptance it seems to gain. It is scarily reminiscent of the operating procedures of other 20th century governmental regimes whose horrible histories do not need to be repeated
If the democratic candidate was running against let's say a Bush,(or similar)with Rove (or similar) leading the republican campaign, it would've been all over a while ago given the economic situation as a whole and the unemployment situation in particular.But with the weakest republican candidate field in our lifetime for the primaries where the winner is one of the worst candidates at campaigning we have ever seen.The main obstacle for Obama's reelection barring an economic catastrophe before the election is the voter suppression implemented by the republicans, they know it that's why they are basically placing all their eggs on suppressing the minority and elderly vote.The democratic party must fight this hard all the way to election day to register record amount of voters and have a vehicle ready to take every single voter to the voting booth and if possible take everybody who needs ID to get it and give them the money if they don't have it, after the election there is no use in complaining . Remember 2000?
For the most part, the American people for the most part are asleep! We are hypnotized by 24 hour cable news and have lost the ability of individual thought. Mitt Romney has the unmitigated gall to rebuke President Obama about negative ad campaigns, when that is all Romney's super-pacs put out! This man will lie about what color the sky is, to get elected. I am afraid American will be utterly destroyed an brought to her knees before we wake up.
I trust Obama more than Romney. I can tell he has been working hard

This is why Romney lost. He displayed poor cognitive reasoning. He actually said that the widely known fact that smaller classroom size in schools is advantageous to students was misinformation perpetuated by teacher's unions to hire more teachers.Are teachers insidious, or is Romney...

Now that President Obama has won a second term I can breathe a bit better. But I've got to say I'm deeply disturbed by the rampant voter disenfranchisement that continues even as I write this.Pennsylvania, Ohio, and more glaringly Florida are all accused, rightly so it seems, of trying to skew the...
