All this crap is starting to make me angry.
And when I get angry, I sometimes say things that I might regret later. But, dammit, can't you folks see what the Repubs are doing? They are driving a wedge in the middle of our Party. They know they cannot win unless they divide the Democrats. Don't be a sucker. Don't fall for all this crap put out by the right-wingers.

Don't buy into all this "guilt by association" bullshit that is spouted by blowhards like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. If we go by their standards, they are guilty of enabling Bush and Cheney in all their lies and crimes and cover-ups. They have a lot of damn gall to call Barack Obama a "racist" when they have shown by their actions to be the true racists amongst us. Don't fall for it.

We cannot sit idly by and let this pass. We must expose their game and their crimes. They are very good at calling names. They are very good at dividing people. We will not let it pass anymore. We will fight them to the end. Their lies will not work this time around. We remember what they did to John Kerry. We will not let it happen to Barack Obama or to Hillary Clinton. There are some times that we should stand together and this is one of those times.

Don't fall for their lies. We know Barack Obama is not a racist. We cannot say the same about Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Just because we favor one Democrat over another, lets not do the dirty work of those two shitheads. Let's stand together on this issue.

1. When Hannity calls someone racist, just bring up his buddy, Hal from North Bergen.

2. Hmmm
A lot of this has come from one side, and not mine.

3. Making me depressed and angry...
getting quite tired of the bs, actually. Afraid we have a long way to go ... and just plain tired of all the infighting. We should be fighting the repubs, not with each other.

7. Obama fan but will of course support Hillary.if she is nominated
The Underground seems to a little quieter, a little more thoughtful, an a lot less slimy tonight. Is that because of lot of the posters in the last day who seemed like they had a dual citizenship, Free Republic/Democratic Underground have crawled back in their holes.

8. Hard to say, but that cartoon of shooting oneself in the foot got my attention!
I'll look for it again.

6. I find it rather amusing that much of the MSM is relying on "research" by Sean Hannity
on Jeremiah Wright's sermons. They take it for granted that what Hannity put on the air is representative of the thousands of hours of sermons Wright preached over 36 years at the same church.

IMO, this situation cannot last. Sooner or later, somebody is going to go to sources other than Sean Hannity to find out who Jeremiah Wright really is. Then there are going to be many red faces.

9. I don't watch Fox. ABC bought serveral tapes of the insane
minister that BO thinks so much of. Bo has very poor judgement attending that church not only as a candidate but as a father. He shouldn't even be allowed in the Senate. I hope he gets voted out and a Black man with good credentials, knowledge, and judgement and not a hater can get it. We don't need haters running this country. I read his mother brought him up as an atheist, and anti-American. Then his wife made her not proud of America remark. How can anyone trust him now?

10. Hannity chose the wrong minister to try to Swiftboat. Wright is highly regarded
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 10:46 PM by ProgressiveEconomist
by other clergy. That's why there's a market for audio and video of his sermons. Evidently, many seminary students have bought Wright's recorded sermons to LEARN how to preach.

You evidently trust Sean Hannity's "fair and balanced" cherry-picking from thousands of hours of Wright sermons over 30 years.

"Truth will out". See, for example, http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

13. Have you been to the church?
I'm sure you have, to have formed such a strong opinion on it. Certainly you wouldn't have those criticisms based on a few seconds of tape from over 30 years of Wright's sermons?

Naw, you wouldn't be that prejudiced.

12. They'll do the same to either Clinton or Obama in the general
Choosing a candidate based on fear of the slime machine is bullshit. So far Obama has been going after McCain and Clinton after Obama.
