“Have our memories been deleted? Seven years ago, 3000 Americans died on September 11, no, Saddam did not do it, but they died, nevertheless. This week we hit the 4,000 mark of American soldiers dead in Iraq, should we be there, again, NO! But it doesn't make any of these people, any less dead. I am told to go to youtube to see the full sermon the Rev. gave. But I am sorry, there is no right context to say GOD DAMN AMERICA, there just isn't. I won't drink the Obama Kool aid, no way, no how. I campaigned for him for six months and the first day in the office, I knew the campaign was more about race than it wasn't. If it wasn't, then why were the first several thousand calls ONLY to blacks in my state? You say Hillary lied, at least she was there. Where has Obama been? A few trips here and there. Go look at his record, it speaks for itself. While all of you were standing mesmerized by the speeches he gives, that someone else rights, I was at his headquarters looking at his record and making sure I had my facts, because I take this seriously and his record is squat, nada, zero. Take a real look. Hillary may not be the best choice, but right now, she is the only choice.”

You were nothing but a MOLE, a CLINTON PLANT. One more thing, if Hillary had not been married to Bill Clinton, you would never had heard of her.”
IslandGyal on Mar 28, 2008 at 10:48:24
You were looking for a negative, and that's what you found. It's like misspeaking to someone, as that's what they want to hear. There was nothing Senator Obama was going to do to make you vote for him. You were looking to prove a negative.”

“"If it wasn't, then why were the first several thousand calls ONLY to blacks in my state?"
Political conversion is ridiculously expensive. Campaigns always focus on Get Out the Vote of true believers; e.g., first Dems, then Independents. With the Clintons having totally dissed the AA community, of course the first target audience would be AAs. That's why she is using racist Wright White Fright in PA, to secure her working class white vote.
Both have only 2 major pieces, despite HRCs longer tenure. Blame it on the Rep Senate. Nothing has been more costly to this country in every way conceivable than the War, and HRC made that a political pawn in her career. Bad is experience”

Why Was She In The White House While 6 Of The 12 Times When He Was Having Sex With Another Woman ? Did She Know ? Where Is Her Judgment ?

“Wow what a tool you are. The Rev Wright story is a non-issue for anyone with a brain. That obviously excludes you. WTF do the 9/11 attacks have to do with any of this?!? Its pathetic that anyone dumb enough to take that bait, or to react to the phony Pledge of Allegiance smear can have an outcome in this race, with all that's at stake for America. Bush-Clinton-Bush has just about destryed this country, and has done far more damage than any Anti-American terrorist could dream of. Looks like we are going to get a lying low-class self-centered power hungry unprincipled freak, or a War monger who plans to deliver us a third Bush term---and we could have had a smart, classy. honest President who cares about all of America, not just a privaleged few. Thanks to you and your ilk, kirafa. Thanks a lot”

“You say, "I campaigned for him for six months and the first day in the office, I knew the campaign was more about race than it wasn't." And you appear to feel that race should be a 'non factor'. So, then why on earth did you continue in this endeavor for an additional 5 months and 29 days after had discovered this awful truth?”
MikeDu on Mar 28, 2008 at 10:24:43
“You're linking Senator Obama to the 9-11 attacks? I don't understand your point. If you're trying to paint Obama as some fearful threat to the white race that's doubly absurd! You seems to be exhibiting a great deal of irrational fear. If you're accusing him of being a smooth-talking flim-flam man, well... maybe you've got a point there. I was burned by the similar Patrick campaign for Mass governor. But hey, he's a politician. Welcome to the American political process.
About your contention of there being no context for anyone to say 'GOD DAMN AMERICA', you must know ZERO history. From the Trail of Tears, to the invasion of the Phillipines 108 years ago, to Jim Crow legislation, to Bush's current offshore torture camps and a million dead Iraqis, you've got to be able to find *something* in our past worthy of that epithet.”

“"But I am sorry, there is no right context to say GOD DAMN AMERICA, there just isn't."
Than I guess you're no better than Rev. Wright for uttering it, since of course, there is NO right context to say it in...”

You support your party, you support the candidate who most closely mirrors the policy you want to see in the WHite House. Or you vote McCain and we stay in Iraq, go to Iran and maybe have our youth drafted. How stupid can you be?”

“He did sacrifice .... You would think that if there were any credibility in his sacrifice then he would not have sold his soul to the Clintons of all people.”
“I simply cannot believe the utter arrogance of some of the posters. You just don't seem to get it. You love to post, "Yes, we can!" and "Obama 08" but simply do not grasp that it is over. You say these things, right underneath a statement of the US is racist. Yes it is. No denying it, the United States is a racist country. If you believe that the US is racist, then you have to accept that the utterings of Rev. Wright have sunk Obama. He cannot win. The racists will be out in droves. People are not going to click on the link that explains what Wright says, anymore than they checked when Kerry was swiftboated or Gore was lashed at for the internet thing. All they know is what they heard and they will continue to hear it and hear it and hear it. This is just a Fox campaign now, wait til the Republicans start, McCain doesn't have to do anything, the PAC's will do it all. The only way to win now, is for us to all come together and back a Hillary/Obama or an Obama/Hillary presidency. So many of you seem to be young, so my last word of advice is, as the Beatles put it, "Come Together", because if we don't, you can expect a draft. If McCain wins, we will be in Iraq a long time and expect Iran to be next. So please, vote against McCain, save yourselves.”
Didi47 on Mar 26, 2008 at 19:04:26
I clicked on the link... watched the videos... looked further and was further appalled to learn about Wright's friendship and numerous trips with Farrakhan... and their mutual admiration society. Racist and hateful ... and horrifying. Then I looked further and discovered Obama has inflated his record like crazy... And I suggest you go and do some homework and learn more about the US and compare it with most other countries.. and I bet you, you'll get down on your knees and thank God you live in the US!
“Oh for god's sake it is an analogy of the high cost of living and yes, people expexc a Presidential Candidate to disown a man who says, "God Damn America". Has nothing to do with racism, has to do with judgment and hypocrisy, we have heard for months Obama test CLinton's judgment on the war, even though, we have no clue as to how he would have voted, if he could have voted, because his track record is shaky. Present votes, oops wrong button votes. Bad judgment, he rails, then turns out he is hanging with Rezko and Rev. Wright? No hidden sexism, just honesty.”
emj2740 on Mar 25, 2008 at 14:44:05
“Well, God Damn America. There I said it and I am a white middle age male. If you were honest in looking into why he said these comments being played in the press you would realize that having a history that include slavery, inability to vote, inability to eat at 'white establishments' , not able to attend but the poorest of schools, water cannons, assasination of MLK, on and on.. maybe you could perhaps empathize with Rev Wright. If the President talked for 30 minutes about an important topic and then happen to say one phrase the press felt would get great media attention and ratings they would play just that snipet over and over and over again. Until you have read 20 years of his sermons try not to judge the man.”
“And I suppose the flip-flopping of Obama, I didn't know, wait-I wasn't there, or better yet I was there, but did not agree with the Rev. Wright. Give me a break.”
eanderso on Mar 25, 2008 at 14:06:43
“Nope, you're misrepresenting what he said. Based on comments on the Huffington Post, Americans are becoming intellectually lazy and willing to distort the facts at an alarming rate. What Obama said, and it has been bourne out, was that he was not there for the sermons that have played out in soundbites for the past week. He said he did hear inflammatory things at other times, and things he did not agree with.”
“If Obama continues to fall in the polls, and if she wins the popular vote (it can be done) and if she wins the next ten states because of his recent problems, and if the superdelegates see this and give her their vote, should the DNC say well he won, so lets just give it to McCain. Because that is what wil happen, I am sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but Obama's numbers are falling and I have a feeling will continue to do so. You cannot slam someone for poor judgment and then show that you have poor judgment as well.
What is truly sad is how little you care for the Democratic Party, sometimes your candidate loses and you have to go with the other person. It is astonishing to me how many of the Obamites state they just will not vote if he loses, this shows me that many are of the "taking their toys and going home" syndrome. That is not how it goes.”
“Stewart is on the money, Rahm Emmanuel is meeting with veterans groups tomorrow to look at the proposal, this proposal was in the news about a week ago. Stay up on your current affairs guys. Obama is not the person you thought he was and this is a very bad idea.”

“Kirafa is right, Obama isn't the person we thought he was.
He's actually an animatronic robot being controlled by aliens from outer space in a secret plot to take over the Earth. This proposal proves EVERYTHING.”
“I am also a PUMA and am disgusted by the way my party has treated its members. I am also appalled at the way I was treated for being a Hillary Clinton supporter. I was called a racist, a bitterender, a hag and called a liar many, many times right here at the Huffington Post. I used to be a regular here and even contributed to the OffTheBus project.
My vote is mine and no matter whom I chose, it should be respected. I feel I was disrected by my own party and a large portion of its members.
I am leaning toward the McCain/Palin ticket and voting down tickets Democrats because of these actions. After the fiascos of the 2000 and 2004 elections, we should all be taking notice of what happened this election cycle.
And lastly, we should all attempt to be a little more respectful of women and fellow dems.”
“Funny thing about Obama supporters, he can flip flop on everything under the sun, and Clinton is still blamed for his problems.
How difficult it must be to constantly make excuses for your candidate.
Why has he flip flopped on FISA, Iraq, campaign finance and on and on and on . . .”
rebeleyeball on Jul 8, 2008 at 19:03:02
“He hasn't. You just believe the MSM. Do some research and watch what he said on the MSNBC debate last October when no one would commit to being out of Iraq by 2013. He didn't flip-flop on FISA. The point of FISA was to get the court involved to protect the 4th amendment, not to make sure we can sue telcos. Also, he never said that he would definitely choose public financing. Get you facts straight and quit listening to the MSM.
No one has blamed HRC for anything. We have moved on to the general election. Where the point is to beat John McCain not continue to run a primary that is already over. It also happened to be won fair and square by th rules of the DNC which were agreed to by all the candidates.”
“There are eight comments on this post, seven of which are derogatory of Senator Clinton and you are waiting for PUMA's to start?

“So I suppose running the primary in the same way that you run the GE is wrong. Shouldn't they be alike?

Go back and check your facts, you are wrong.”

“I have reviewed your past comments. And although you do not insult O supporters, you do attack us.
You once said "The primary was flawed and 18 million voters were left disenfranchised." HC saw this coming and said nothing until she realized she was not going to win. Sorry, but the time to speak up was when she first knew (which was before the campaigning actually began) that both of these States were not going to abide by the DNC rules.
Back in March you stated "If McCain wins, we will be in Iraq a long time and expect Iran to be next. So please, vote against McCain, save yourselves." Would you care to tell me if you will be voting for O or for Mc?”
