Biden Unchained

Today's best headline on a column:
"Obama-Biden: Hope and Chains"
Pretty good column by Debra Saunders too.

I, for one, refuse to believe that most even semi intelligent person can not see this as race baiting??
Put on the southern drawl, actually say "see you back in chains?"

If Romney/Ryan had said this, they would be drummed out of the election. Double standards truly exist and the American people will decide in November. I truly hope the semi intelligent ones outnumber the idiots.

Not only does the Obama campaign, and White House spokesman too deny the racially insensitive comment by Vice President Biden, now they've sent one of their media minions out to try to turn the tables. It is obvious, as you say Danny, double standards exist. And this is a president who has proclaimed that he has not divided America? Will he distance himself from Toure's comments? We'll see.

Charlie et al;

I did not vote for President Obama, but after he was elected I was proud to see in America that we have moved forward to having our first black President. I had lost, but I was proud.
Skip forward to today, my pride has turned to shame. He has divided the country more than any other President. His statements ar so obvious.
Trayvon Martin could have been his son?
Black Panthers not prosecuted?
Supporting Biden to mention "Back in Chains" to a largely African American audience?
Going against a Cop versus an out of control black professor Henry Gates for the Beer Summit?
Supporting Eric Holder from truth in Fast and Furious debacle?

And the hits keep on coming.

I always say I respect the President. I still do, even as I openly admit I think he has lost his credibility.

One nation, indivisible...

I obviously share your perceptions, Danny... But we differ in one respect. I respect the Office of the President of the United States. But in this case I do not respect the occupant for the reasons you note and many others.

Charlie and Dan,
Both of you are making valid observations about race in the public arena.
Think of the sound, straightforward, and yes, courageous comments that Governor Romney made to the NAACP. Then remember how poorly they were reported by the mainstream media.
This isn't just a campaign for the future of America. It's also a campaign to restore the truth as a basis for public dialogue.
Right now, liberal editorializing has replaced facts and balanced reporting, and that license has become a pitiful excuse for journalistic integrity.
