  • Hillbilly

    Mark – No But I heard him try act like a southern hick


    For a whole 21 seconds. :roll: Not even close to what Nobama did.

    as for building roads to suburbs, unless somebody can find proof that the statement is false then I don’t see issues with that statement either.

    So if you live in the city you don’t have roads? You can’t use public transportation? He (Nobama) made it sound like folks in the city have a hard time getting to work for lack of roads. :roll:

    He has killed more Al-Qaeda leaders in one term than Bush did in two terms.

    What makes you think that? How many where killed at the start of the Afghan war? Why is it when one of the leaders are killed, it’s he replaced/took over for “Abdul”? Did “Abdul” retire to some beach side resort? Who decides who is an Al-Qaeda leader? The press? Was Abdul the leader of 5 guys, 10 guys, 50 guys?

    BREAKING NEWS – Drone strike kills Al-Qaeda leader Abdul. He lead the muslim version of the boy scouts. :roll:

  • Hillbilly

    I don’t think the video is a game changer. I can’t believe some can’t hear the race baiting in his speech. Why did he have to do that? Surely he didn’t think McCain was taking the black vote from him. Be interesting to hear Jay Carney’s spin on this tomorrow. Like Harry Reid said – paraphrasing here..I forget the actual words Reid used. “Nobama can speak with a negro accent when he wants to.”

  • Sicilian Papa



    I think it goes a little farther than race baiting. I took some time to digest the remarks.



    He tells the audience they are using the Stafford Act against you. Black victims need to pay but mostly white victims of 9/11 or hurricane Andrew they get the Stafford Act waived. He is a sitting U. S. Senator at the time so he knows the Stafford Act which requires States and locals to pay a % of the total cost of relief had been waived.

    What he is telling the crowd is the Bush Administration and other Republican lawmakers are bigots. They treat you differently because of the color of your skin.

    That whole part of the speech is based on a lie. Senator Obama’s remarks are ugly, bigoted and untrue. You can’t really blame black folks leaving that arena for having certain level of disdain and dislike for whites particularly Republicans.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The speech at Hampton U. also showed how close then Senator Obama was to his pastor the right Rev. Wright. Remember what the corrupt lib. media was selling in 2008. He only attended church once in a while. He hardly knew the guy. He wasn’t there when the Rev. was giving these anti-American speeches.

    After listening to that speech at Hampton U. it appears the President was a whole lot closer to the Rev. rhetorically.

    What does it say about this man we have in the White House? He certainly sold himself as one thing and practiced another. He threw his friend and mentor under the bus and ran him over when it was politically necessary.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The speech at Hampton U. coupled with his friend and Attorney General Eric Holder helping to take over a building at gunpoint does tell you a lot about this man. Remember from all reports President Obama hung out in the newly named Malcolm X Center after Holder and co. took it over. Columbia U. was afraid to prosecute because they feared violent reprisals.

    How ugly is that?

  • Sicilian Papa

    My Final comment is on the corrupt lib. media. Come on, they knew all this in 2008 and they covered it up. They are the most corrupt organization in America today. They are nothing more than political hacks.

    You know they say politics is show business for ugly people. The news media is show business for the talentless.

  • Letmethink

    Morning All,
    After listening to the speech last night on Hannity, it confirmed my feelings about obama. We needed a uniter and not a divider. We needed what he said he would be. Race relations are much worse after his four years. Our country can not take four more years of this man and his administration. Agree that holder is also a radical. Will be interesting to see how the media handles this. We can probably guess.
    Well, out of town guest start arriving today so gotta’ get busy.
    Have a good one all.

  • sunshine

    Good Morning

    I am disgusted. This will be my only post today because I have to get away from this.

    Obama is a “racist” No use debating the fact.

    He has set back race relations 50 years.

    My husband’s Thanksgiving this weekend. Cya next week!

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone

    *Bullet Dodged: Ann Coulter Tells Joy Behar That Playboy Magazine Asked Her To Pose Nude :shock: Thank Goodness!

    Did you know Romney and Obama have already debated once? :-)


  • Coffee Steve

    Gooooooood Morning Sunshine

    Stay calm and enjoy your week. The tape is out, let people soak it in and think about it.

  • TwilightZone

    Obama’s speech to Hampton University:

    For 37 minutes I see Obama making more reference to Jesus Christ than in 3-1/2 years, making me wonder if he’ll say anything and do anything for a vote.

    For 37 minutes I see Obama trying to sound like someone I haven’t heard him sound like in any other speech. Then I read a post here where someone tries to compare that to a 21 second soundbite of Romney jokingly sounding like a hick, prefaced by “now the Govenor says I have to say this right..”

    For 37 minutes, I see Obama rallying up deep rooted frustrations of Blacks against the Whites, setting us back decades in the area of Civil Rights. Obama claims we need to give more to the impoverished neighborhoods and claims the Spirit is moving him to say this, though Christ (one with the Father and the Spirit aka ‘Trinity’) was all about teaching a man to fish instead of giving him a fish so that he made feed himself a lifetime instead of just one day.

    I see Obama give a sound out to Jeremiah Wright, who has screemed “Not God Bless America, but God Damn America. It’s in the Bible!” Obama says that Mr. Wright tutored him, counseled him, etc. But! Obama has stated in all other interviews that he’d only been to that church a few times, missing of the more heated sermons <>

    What is happening to this great nation?

  • Ratboy

    Good Morning All!
    The speech will not be a game changer because the MSM will not report it, any who talks about it will spin it, by reading the posts here it is evident that if you support Obama you cant be swayed, and those of use that had the feeling he is phoney will only be able to say “see I told you so even though you dont care or beleive it.

    The most sickening part of this is the way the MSM and the campaign conspired to hide the full speech and only release the transcript for the 9 or 10 minutes that has been on the web. The American people used to be able to put SOME trust in the news for our information and turn to the editorial pages for opinion but those days are gone and almost forgoten (and unknown to many fo the young and younger posters here).

    I dont like liars! I di not tolerate it with my kids. I dont tolerate it in business. And I dont tolerate it from my grandkids or family/personal relationships. I dont like phoneys and again I dont tolerate it well. But we are being governed by bigger liars and phoney than we ever have been because they are not held accountable and the MSM used to do that for us.


  • Coffee Steve

    Breakfast summary:

    Debates will be a huge factor in the election. But, only after all of them, the public is holding out to see all subjects talked about. Tonight’s debate deals with Domestic Issues.

    Romney’s goal? Gain the confidence of the public and re-assure them he is better on the economy. Show he does relate to the concerns of the Middle and Lower Class, and highlight his life in business.

    Obama’s goal- Give an explanation on the economy and why it is crawling. Explain what he will do different if he is re-elected to re-ignite the economy and reduce the deficit.

    The numbers: Getting closer it’s within the Margin of error. Senate up for grabs, House of Reps-GOP will retain but just a question of how many the DNC picks up there.

    On the Obama tape: Too early to tell if it will have any effect, but if it gets out that Obama mislead on the (Stafford Act) it may have more of an effect. Obama said in the tape that the Stafford Act was not issued for New Orleans, when it fact, it was. And Judging from (the up till now reaction) from the left leaning media and the assault they are doing on the Obama tape, they do feel this tape can do some damage.

    The tape could affect the Independent vote.

    While making my rounds this early this morning, Media Matters, Kos, Huffpo, it shows they are concerned about the Video, And listening to Talk radio In Kentuckiana it’s all about the tape. And most of the callers I heard call in, is not favorable to the message on the tape. Remember as well, Louisville is overwhelmingly liberal.

  • Coffee Steve

    Got to get school going, BBL…

  • Ratboy

    So which one is it?? Biden admits that the last 4 years buried the middle class (thank you Joe!) then the spin starts

    BIDEN: Middle class has been ‘buried’…

    CUTTER: We’re Not Blaming Bush…

    GIBBS: It’s All Bush’s Fault…

  • Sicilian Papa

    “Where is your Stafford act…Where is your dollar.”

    The accent would be okay if he spoke that way all the time.

    It would be like me saying, “Hey…yo…gimme a couple two tree a dem ha.”

    My mother made sure my sisters and me spoke perfect English.

    DB you were right as far as the speech cadence and accent, totally phony.
