    Yep. Any criticism of "the black president" is because he is black. But maybe the libs think he needs special treatment because of his skin color.

    Horsecrap. This was an event in front of the cameras, planned to help sell books. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded. Hell, we don't even know what she said while she was wagging her finger. It could have been something about how she couldn't get a booger out from under her nail, said with emphasis, but we'll never know.

    Well, F&B, re-read my post. I know you have serious trouble understanding what people say. Take a while, think it through.

    She knows Obama will deal with that well, which is why she did it. Nothing to do with race there at all.

    As to WHY Obama will deal? I think being an ambassador of minority people in leadership positions does involve race, but isn't the primary consideration. If Obama were white, he still would deal with this, because that's who he is.

    Brewer isn't a racist as much as she is just shitty taking advantage of somebody she knows won't push back on petty things, which Obama won't.

    This is covered ground.

    There is an indisputable racist contingent of the teaparty.
    If you fail to acknowledge it, you are either dishonest or ignorant.
    (my money's on both BTW)

    The GOP cannot acknowledge it or condemn it because they need their fervor at the ballot box.
    Brewer is playing to this crowd to get more airtime to sell her book.

    Yep.

    She's deffo playing that crowd. She's also able to push because Obama isn't about validating petty shit, which is why he said it's no big deal. It isn't.

    Maybe I'm saying conflicting things. Probably. I just see shitty character more than I do racism. Enabling is the word I find fits best. She's enabling that racist shit more than she actually buys it, IMHO. And that's the shitty character.

    I don't like his White half either.

    ...the same racist tea party which loved Herman Cain who is twice as black as Obama.

    But of course you have an out. Any black Republican is an "Uncle Tom."

    Naahhhh...I'm fairly certain that there were a WHOLE bunch of black people that hated Herman Cain, too. And I wouldn't call Colin Powell an "Uncle Tom," but there sure seem to be a whole passel of TeaBaggers who don't have any respect for him.

    That's your interpretation.
    No one here said that.
