I think it's hilarious that the right is telling Obama to re-instate Shirley Sherrod. FOX and Co. played Obama for a sucker and he walked right into it. Normally, I would feel really bad for the Obama administration but after the stunt that Breibart and FOX News pulled with the Acorn video you'd think the Obama administration would have gotten a clue. They didn't so now they have egg on their face.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Obama got sucker punched twice by the same people so shame on him.

It does appear that Shirley Sherrod seems rather conflicted, "I had a revelation...it is about poor, not black or white...it is about black and white... although she does seem to realize at the end of the day, a poor farmer is a poor farmer. That being said, I think her supervisor should have asked her to clarify her statements before simply firing her. I do find it disturbing, however, that in the full video, she implies that the lack of support for The Health Care Bill was due to racism, when we all know that the Health Care Bill is not a race to begin with. I think it is important that she clarifies her statement regarding The Health Care Bill as it would not surprise me that if she thinks logically about what she stated, she will have another revelation.

Obama 2012, "For God and Country"

Ken Blackwell is to the Huff Post as Pat Buckannon is to MSNBC.

Mr. Blackwell:
Your discussion is disingenous. She wasn't "undone by an unguarded or ill-considered remark caught on camera and YouTubed to the world." She was deliberatly and malicously smeared by Fox News, Andrew Breitbart, and your right wing echo chamber. Until you and that echo chamber denounce such tactics you have no credibility here.

MsSherrod! When I came to America I lived in Harlem. EVERYONE HAD *PERSONAL DIGNITY* though poor! That enabled black adults to command respect from black youth. I found black women fearless, like you&BunnyGreenhouse in Rumsfled's crooked Pentagon, something Obama could never appreciated because he was raised by an oppressed white woman.

I was a leader in the Conservative Movement, MsSherrod, and know them well: most I met were either muscleheads or swindlers. None cared about ideas only “ME” getting ahead. Truth was either tool for self-promotion or a "Commie lie." Their philosophy is simply: "THERE'S A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE." Their CAPITALISM IS CANNIBALISM. As Frank's great book: THE WRECKING CREW catalogues, they are mostly crooks who live to rip off the American government&people, just like CheneyRumsfeldRove&Bush-it, the dumber. They are ME-ists who believe in nothing that's not CASH. Hiding behind Jesus a lot of on-the-take Conservatives believe in "thinking outside[TRUTH]box" to hide their predatory stalker nature and their intellectual mediocrity. Unfortunately, Obama didn't realize that you can't get in bed with them and not catch something. Who knows if his brain is infected after two years of bending over compromises.

VILSSACK IS A "CLINTONISTA" long in bed with such conservatives; “Clintonistas” do anything to hurt Obama to help Hillary in 2012. In Democratic Primaries Bill kept reminding white Dems that Obama is black and Hillary white. VILLSACK *MUST* BE FIRED to show there's no room for knee-jerk racism.

Ken, why aren't you condemning the far right-wing activist who posted the maliciously edited video on his Web site, or Fox News for unquestioningly running it nonstop for a full day, without asking Sherrod for her side of the story? Why no condemnation of O'Reilly or Hannity for calling for her resignation without knowing all the facts?

The Obama administration blew it on this one, but their biggest mistake was in letting themselves get bullied by the right-wing media that you love so much and refuse to hold accountable for their part in this modern-day lynching.

So Ken, now you suddenly care about black people. Then explain to us why largely black districts did not have an adequate number of voting machines in 2004? Why did they have to wait over 10 hours to vote, while rural areas did not have this problem?

So true

Ken Blackwell appears to be ignorant of the real story here. Did he even see Ms. Sherrod's unedited speech?

And where does "forgiveness and grace" come into play? Whose "humility" is he referring to?

While I agree with your thesis (re-hire Shirley Sherrod), you should also be asking both Andrew Breitbart and Fox News to publicly apologize to Sherrod for smearing her as they did.

They meant to smear her and get the reaction that they are getting now!

Where is the condemnation Mr. Blackwell for the person who manufactured this to begin with? Where's the disdain for the intent of chopping and screwing the tape to make Mrs. Sherrod and those in the crowd appear to be racists?

We can also learn a lesson that the corporate media should have learned long ago. Never trust anything Andrew Breitbart says, and know that he is a racially motivated, bigoted, hypocrite.
03:13 PM on 07/21/2010
Your friends ov er at fox News should apologize to this woman.

Right after he calls her and apologizes profusely and begs her to come back; he should submit his resignation. Yeah, that's likely to happen!
