51. Not sure if the ORer was attempting to call me a troll?
I can assure you that I am not. I volunteered for the Obama Campaign. I came a little late to support it because as noted above, I was a Edwards supporter. After Senator Edwards dropped out of the race and off the heels of Bill Clinton's South Carolina comment, I had to research Barack Obama before I supported him completely. After my research, I believed he was and is IMHO a Moderate Democrat. Others might have believed different which is why they are disappointed in some of his actions a year later.

I have disagreed with some of Obama positions and thought he took too long to fully show actions on others, like the Jobs and Unemployment issue. I have disagreed with him on the HOPE for Homeowners program, specifically allowing the banks to set the guidelines for the program, that has allowed many families to be placed out of their home when they needed help. I understand that he is not perfect and has made mistakes. I hope that in the next year he will fix most of these issues.

Still placing ANY person in "Blackface" is a non-starter for me. It is one thing to disagree, it is another to do this. On top of this, joining forces with the Teabaggers or PUMA movement is another non-starter. Disagree if you must but I would never go to this extreme. The Hamster has made her bed and tucked in the sheets even more by deciding to go on Fox News for anything.....after her pattern as described above.

But, you choose to call me a Troll. Is this to turn the debate from the original reason of this post? Who is this woman and why are people choosing to support anything she stands for after offending the most loyal voting block of the Democrat community? I am lost here..............
