    Those of you who think chanting the name of the usurper president is ok. You are obviously not very educated and may want to go study history and what other "leaders" like HITLER, STALIN. MAO have done to their people. YOUR ignorance will cost millions of lives....

    This is the Republicans being political.

    Democrates are political too.

    This is much ado about nothing except one extremely important thing.

    Children are being used as political weapons by partisan conservatives.

    The political Ad from the people at Defeat-The-Debt.com that ran on
    CNN this morning used children to try to make a political point. Obama is the guy who the conservatives say is going to bankrupt
    us all and our children.

    The star was a young black girl.

    We were bankrupt when Obama took over and already had stuck our
    kids with extreme long time debt...... For Wars still unsettled,..... tax cuts for the wealthy.....and a world on the brink of depression.

    Please don't run ads using children as political weapons or do stories
    with partisans using children as political weapons.

    This is outrageous you know..

    Dianne. That is untrue. When my son was in school (before black history month was around) his school taught black inventors and their inventions, Harriet Tugman, George Washington Carver and Maritn Luther King and many other black people for at least a week long! He did essays and posterboards for these school projects and it was in a public school. They had pictures of Martin Luther King up on the walls and they even got out of school for a whole day. No political views- just plain old education. And he enjoyed it, and I enjoyed helping him do his projects. Maybe you don't have or have had children in school. I don't know. I am so sad that there are so many black racists being hippocritical at a time when white people are not. There was a time when all this affirmative action was necessary- but that time is long gone. Can't it be just about learning no matter what race? Should a black man or woman get a job or scholarship just because of his skin color. You don't think that's hippocritical.
    Didn't President Obama say before he was elected he'd rather be a muslim than an American? What does that tell you? He expected Americans to vote for him after saying that? Are you telling me that if another presidential candidate said that he wouldn't be wiped out of the election. For goodness sakes he went into a church and covered the cross. But for some reason I still like him and I can't figure out why. Because I expect he will do a lot for our country. I was gonna vote for him until I heard some of the things he represented.
