“this is an honest question...

are these democrat concerns with the filibuster senate rule the result of them losing the majority or has this been an issue throughout their control of the majority? i really want to know if this is a legit, long standing concern or if its sour grapes.

we should not change rules because we no longer want to play by them. now if you are for changing a rule when it benefits you, then applaud that politician.”

“so you were speaking about bush, i thought the "i didnt mention names" was a "bait and switch."

i do agree that people to be willing to admit their candidate/president of choice messes up.

there are two extremes, either "blame bush for everything and obama for nothing" or "dont blame bush for anything and obama for everything." there are some that are reasonable in seeing that both have moments of being right and moments of being wrong.”

“play at being clever? did i say something that struck a cord with you?

your argument of 'insinuate others are racists" for seeing racism in clinton's statement is beyond absurd.

you know nothing of me or my background to make such a statement. that is my beef with your comment. whether you have a differing opinion, is of no importance to me. we are all entitled.”

“your post appears to have a political axe to grind, and addressed politico "gathering/fabricating" references. perhaps the use of "fabricating" for this article gives mixed messages. its more a lack of clarity than a lack of understanding.

in the pursuit to defend a party, no matter what facts are presented, reveals a weakness in critical and honest thinking. belief that a party is above mistakes makes people overlook the actual mistakes as accusations and/or lies.

i wasnt a witness, so i am not taking anyone's word for it. especially knowing that either side has a political axe to grind with each other. its a political game, and too many people play or are being played in it.”

“so politico wrote the book "Game Change" (by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin) to slander democrats? party bias can often make one blind to reality.”

DonRoberto on Jan 13, 2010 at 09:37:13

“Not at all. But Politico did selectively choose which anecdotes, out of hundreds, to include in their article. That is what I pointed out and you have apparently chosen not to understand.”

Make an argument, if you have one, and we can discuss it. But if your gig is pop psychology, maybe you'd be happier at a self-help website.”

“a lot of race talk lately. imo, alot of people's opinions are based on the wrong reasons: their political belief. instead of looking at the statement for what it is, we look to see who said it and based on our party, either excuse or condemn it. not everyone, but many are doing this.

i believe many republicans are throwing our the "racist" label because the offenders are democrat. whereas if rush or cheney would have said it they would somehow find a way to defend the comments.

the same is true on the left, i believe many democrats are defending the comments simply because a democrat said it. and if rush would have said the same thing they would be condemning the statements.

so many double standards.

reid's and clinton's comments are both stupid, ignorant and are racially motivated. the words "n*gr0dialect" should never enter reid's vocabulary, and clinton should realize that saying obama should "getting us coffee statement." its racially insensitive and belittling, and i believe he would not have said this if obama was white. you can get your own d*mned coffee.

however, are reid and clinton racists because they said it? i cannot say.

i think there is alot of racism in this country (stating the obvious), and alot in the left and the right sides of politics.”

“I think Republicans are sick and tired of being called racists when they are not and are finally having the courage to stand up and point out racism from the left.”

skatoolaki on Jan 10, 2010 at 14:04:02

“Exactly, and thank you.

Racism has nothing to do with party affiliation. People make racist statements whether they are Republicans, Democrats, or Independents. There are racists and non-racists in both parties and all over the world.

You are right on the money that if the other side/party is the one making the statement, their own jump to their defense and the opposing party denounces it. It happens again and again. And then each of the other is saying the other is "closet racist" or "way more racist than we are". The whole thing is just silly, imo. It's all being taken out of context. Racism goes far, far beyond U.S. government party lines and is a problem the world over. It is not a Democrat/Republican issue or a he said/she said game.”

“i would have to agree that since bush alot of republicans are hiding out as independants, which is lame because then they muddy the independent waters. if and when the next republican comes to office, i hope and pray they all inspect him with the same scrutiny as they did obama.

i know i will, as its our duty to put our leaders' feet to the fire. they do work for us after all.”

“Recognizing racism in the electorate doesn't have to be the same as being racist yourself --- unless you yourself are a racist, in which case you may not understand the distinction. It's close to the definition of ridiculous to infer that Bill Clinton is or was racist.”
