    Longer unemployment. No money? No problem, the rich will pay for your health insurance. Default on your house? No problem. Fannie and Freddie will take care of it.
    He is the classic socialist and regrettably Americans have become lazy. Not all, but just enough to elect this fool.
    Let's not forget the Farm subsidies and the Oil Company subsidies though. You guys are quite laughable when it comes to micro defining Welfare

    That's a serious charge you so flippantly threw at jetswin, and THAT does not serve us well at all. Your true colors, indeed. At least now we can be sure to take your future musings with a much needed grain of salt.
    Show me where I was one of the morons criticizing Bush for his use of time. It was stupid then, and it's stupid now. And by all means, take ALL my future musings (past ones too) with a grain of salt. Put a pinch of pepper on them too. Geez, this is getting sillier by the minute. Such thin skinned posters (no pun intended). This was an absolutely worthless and stupid thread starter. Sorry. Just the truth.

    One more thing Fish as usual makes an astute point... the fact that racism is now used as a weapon against their "enemy" conservatives. It's really not common sense anymore it's us vs them in the eyes of libs. Imagine the outrage if a repub president spent 1.6mm in this economy to fly across country for little more than a campaign speech and followed it up with more multi media madness like a photo shoot.

    Maybe he'll be in a speedo, it is swimsuit issue season (Matthews and others get tingly again).

    My point was that your thread was indefensible. Still is. Waste of space stupidity. Unless of course you were one of the posters who attacked Bush and every other president for poor use of time. I'm guessing you thought you were doing tit-for-tat. Still dumb.

    The difference:

    You were silent then.

    You called Jetswin a Racist now (and stated it was "new rules" for Obama, when it's clearly and obviously not).

    See now the objection, or no?

    No. I find it hypocritical that the same people who found it offensive when Bush was being attacked for his use of time create threads for the new guy and attack him for the same thing. Whether it's because of some underlying racism or merely ideological sniping is immaterial to me. It's all dumb. But I'm glad we cleared up the Jetswin is not racist. Although he opens himself to that possible interpretation when he posts empty threads that serve no good purpose. Bonhomme Richard has enlightened me as to the high standards we have here for discourse. I will certainly work to improve my level of contribution...

    Was it racist then too? Or is that just now?

    I get it. Lazy Friday, you just want to the weekend to start. You momentarily forgot who were talking to here. We're not knee-jerk rubes who you can indiscriminately call racists because that's the comeback du jour of the Democractic Party. You have to try a little bit harder to make a coherent point. This isn't cable television.

    Before moving on, and letting bygones be bygones, I do want to quote this one for posterity, just one more time. It just says so much. It sums up the mindset of Obama apologists in a nutshell.

    Opens it up to that possible interpretation by...you.

    I started a thread about scissors...didnt see you anywhere near that one.

    Your reaction to this thread.... and defense of your posts.. is textbook latent racist blather.

    Your knee jerk identification of the President in racial terms as per this thread speaks volumes about the lense you view things through.

    Un-freakin'-believable!

    Barack Obama's Wall Street handlers are making the rich in this country filthy rich. Meanwhile minorities and women are going in reverse.

    And Democrats still support Obama?

    Democrats are complete fools!

    This is why Barack Obama's handlers chose him back in 2008. Obama is a useful idiot whom won't give Wall Street any problem in making them rich. Then if anyone says anything bad about Obama they pull out the race card diversion while they plunder the middle class and poor.

    And Obama's a Democrat?

    I wonder how much Dick Cheney's financial portfolio went up last month.

    You realize that food and oil subsidies keep prices LOWER for the masses, right? You do understand micro and macro economics, of course?
    Actually, all subsidies should be eliminated. The price of gas and heating oil will go 10+% and food 6-10%. Plus many other goods dependant on subsiidies. I don't care. I'm covered. You're screwed.
    No education subsidies, health subsidies, food stamp subsidies, housing subsidies. None OF ANY KIND. I back that 100%.

    After reading the rest of leprechaun's posts his attack (not for lack of a better word, it is the accurate word) seems more personal than anything else. I refuse to believe any intelligent person could be as myopic toward reality.

    lol now I'm not surprised

    Maybe. Or it was just a lot of elitist huffing and puffing by self-righteous liberal types.

    Right. Yup, by me. I didn't say everybody here thinks Jetwsin was referencing a black president and how he uses his time. I commented that I thought so. I'm missing the "latent racist blather." Unless saying that someone's post is stupid is inherently latently racist. As to the last point, it's all about context. There's been enough said on this forum by many participants that might, just might, tip ones reading toward the usual rant. You guys have got to do better than this.

    Lil, you've been one of my favorite posters, but this is irresponsible and lazy.

    To backtrack now and claim you merely called the original post isn't an accurate portrayal. Stupid is one thing, racism is a serious charge, that has actual meaning. Every time that charge is thrown out without basis, it cheapens the term. And people who have been real victims of racism don't really appreciate that. It isn't a term you just get to throw around on a whim to belittle those who differ from your political viewpoints.
