Thanks to Media Matters.
"We are being told that we have to hope he succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward, whichever, because his father was black, because this is the first black president." Obama's "only chance of winning" the presidency "is that he's black."
"If Barack Obama were Caucasian, they would have taken this guy out on the basis of pure ignorance long ago."
Democrats "want to get us out of Iraq, but they can't wait to get us into Darfur." He continued: "There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur? It's black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they're in trouble."
Responding to a Reuters report on a University of Chicago study that found that "a majority of young blacks feel alienated form today's government," He asserted on February 5, 2007: "Why would that be? The government's been taking care of them their whole lives."
My "cat's taught me more about women, than anything my whole life" because his pet cat "comes to me when she wants to be fed," and "[s]he's smart enough to know she can't feed herself. She's actually [a] very smart cat. She gets loved. She gets adoration. She gets petted. She gets fed. And she doesn't have to do anything for it."
Discussing the CBS reality TV program, Survivor, in which contestants were originally divided into competing "tribes" by ethnicity, he stated that the contest was "not going to be fair if there's a lot of water events" and suggested that "blacks can't swim." He stated that "our early money" is on "the Hispanic tribe" -- which he said could include "a Cuban," "a Nicaraguan," or "a Mexican or two" -- provided they don't "start fighting for supremacy amongst themselves." He added that Hispanics have "probably shown the most survival tactics," that they "have shown a remarkable ability to cross borders," and that they can "do it without water for a long time, they don't get apprehended, and they will do things other people won't do."
Following the disclosure of detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib, he claimed in 2004 that the U.S. military personnel involved were just "having a good time," and that their actions served as an "emotional release." He called the abuse "hazing," referred to it as "an out-of-control fraternity prank," and agreed with a caller that the abuse "was like a college fraternity prank."
On his TV show, early in the Clinton administration, he put up a picture of Socks, the White House cat, and asked, "Did you know there's a White House dog?" Then he put up a picture of Chelsea Clinton, who was 13 years old at the time.
And now the latest:
"I hope the President fails" If it means his socialistic methods are not vindicated, I hope the president fails"
"The President has no interest in stopping this economic collapse"
GOP leader Michael Steele: "He is a conservative leader"

You guessed it....Rush Limbaugh.

I guess you and Rush have something in common; you both have used his comments to try and grab a little attention. Thanks for rehashing the all of the ugliness that is Rush. The problem with politics is that the right and the left seem to be degenerating to the same pathetic level of character. It is a sad day for America.

It is the lack of character, in both our leaders and in ourselves, that has led us down a path where our credibility has been lost. A path void of a moral compass. A path we have been descending for many decades. We all need to get over the red and blue rhetoric and get down to doing what we ought to be doing. Working hard. Being honest. Defending those in need. Helping those who can't help themselves and motivating those who can but refuse.

America needs to grow up. There is a time to be the bigger person and put away the childish things. If not for us then for the future gneration.

I am not sure how you can look at the comments made by Limbaugh, which were made by the most public spokesman for the conservatives at present, and then somehow lump us liberals in with them; what you have termed our mutual "level of character."

Truth is you couldn't produce so much as one remark from the left to equal the continuing diatribe of this waste of human flesh. This man was a keynote speaker at CPAC. He was warmly received there and got standing ovations. Limbaugh and Coulter, the two GOP darlings.

If I must ignore, or somehow excuse these hate filled bigoted remarks, then I will never be a bigger person by your standards.

Childish? Is that how you would describe overt racism, a manifestation of childishness? How about the prisoner abuse at Abu, having a good time, or childishness? Lets not be naive. We cannot let these comments be made without objection or go unnoticed.

I absolutely agree with your synopsis of what we need to do. But all you have done is merely rehashed what we liberals believe in, our party platform.

The point is unfortunately, when you look at comments like these, which are silently shared by many of those on the other side of the aisle, it would be childish to think we can put these aside and forget. This is what we are dealing with.

If my reminder upset you, GOOD. We must never forget, we must never take it in silence and we must stand up for what is right, and in this case, what is morally reprehensible. To do so would be to lose our credibility, as liberals, and as human beings.

Thanks for your sentiments and comments. Hopefully others will chime in.

Did you read your Superbowl installment; unfortunatly my daughter did.

Kim said...

I cannot express how stunned I am at your last comment. There are very few comments which would leave me speechless, but yours certainly did.

I have gone back and read my Superbowl post a few times, and although not one of the readers expressed any outrage or concern (actually quite the opposite----the attention grab you alluded to), it is certainly not meant for viewing by a child, and for that I apologize.

Suddenly what was considered smart and witty and clever by everyone (especially myself), doesn't quite seem as clever at present.

To so much as question how your child came upon the posting; to somehow attempt to shift the blame would be repugnant, to say the least. To say that the posting is quite tame compared to what anyone can find on the internet with a simple Google search of any expletive would be repugnant as well, but the case could be made for either; let alone that the use of "f-bombs" as I call them, are quite commonplace in the English language and American culture today.

The bottom line is this blog is my sole creation, and I am solely responsible. I quite frankly never thought of a child finding this blog (which would be somewhat like finding a needle in a haystack, unless they knew the exact name of it), or remoted considered any child interested in the content of this blog. Needless to say, it is not intended for anything other than adult consumption.

Again, please accept my heartfelt apologies. I hope you will take steps to insure your child cannot access this blog, and many others far worse on the internet.

May I suggest Google safe search? It can filter out adult content, which I suppose includes this blog at times, and may well again in the future.

It doesn't make it morally correct, but I still to this day receive praise and positive comments over that piece of humor, and many requests for more. There is an appetite for this kind of benign (sic) humor, which I respectfully reserve the right to fulfill from time to time.
