    Link: `If Obama Was White This Election Would Be Over` - That`s what Rush thinks. Any thoughts, I-A-B?

    A right-wing nutjob saying that dems need to lie? Even if true, did he not see Ryan`s speech at the RNC? Or Turzai admit that voter ID is only there to help republicans win?

    I sort of thought that in the first place. I`m Canadian and didn`t follow much of the actual campaigning, but I figured that at this stage in society it was the cool, rebellious, or current-fad thing to vote for someone just because it would be a big first.

    I`d have to agree with Rush on this one. I think he got elected because he would be "the first black President". I have black friends who were proud to vote for him just because he was black. Period.

    I believe Obama never would have become president, if he wasnt black. He simply lacked the credentials.
    That said, i think he has proven himself enough to contend in this election. Especially against the likes of Mitt Romney

    Danagamer - No, it`s no state sponsored religion. And we don`t have that.

    FoolsPrussia - No, that`s the simplified dumb-sounding American way. It`s Goebbels. Learn the German oe sound.

    And being black certainly helped him, seeing as in 2008 there was a feeling that we needed something completely new to put us in a totally new direction. Hillary was old news, Biden, Dodd, and Edwards were just the typical white guys. Obama was the hip black guy who spoke very well. His identity absolutely led to his message resonating with so many of the voters.

    First black president to be re-elected? Yeah, it sounds cool. Makes the young people think they`re part of history because they voted for him. Others just go with the flow, scared of being called racists.

    I over-emphasized the "Gehr" in my written pronounciation, but Rush is way off. I`d like to see him tackle "Goethe".

    Wow, race really isn`t an issue here. Wasn`t Herman Cain the front runner for the Republicans only a few months ago?

    If the Dems are such knee-jerkers at the sight of a black guy running for president, why didn`t we all suddenly become Republicans? I mean, Cain is 100% black, Obama is only 50%.

    What nonsense.

    patchgrabber-"voter ID is only there to help republicans win?"

    Yes, if you keep the illegals, felons and dead people from voting democrat, it can only help the republicans. (in other words, allowing cheating always helps the democrats)

    FoolsPrussia-"You don`t think his remarkable oratorical ability had something to do with it?"

    Or as Biden said, "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy".

    (He was wrong, AND RACIST, btw)

    I have zero respect for people like Rush Limbaugh. He makes his living dividing our citizens and turning them against their fellow man. Most of the time that is done through spin (which is basically just a lie wrapped up in a pretty package). Talk about a lack of morals. And yes I say the same thing about all the political pundits who push partisan politics and division. They are the very reason the House and Senate can not work together. They are to blame for a lot of the mess we are currently in.

    He`s right (but not for the reasons he think). If Obama was white the republicans wouldn`t be able to scare up enough of their base against him to stand any other candidate up with any hopes of defeating him.

    Then you must really hate the current administration, which is actively promoting class and race warfare.

    patchgrabber-"And how many counts of voter fraud have there been in the last decade or so?"

    Ark. lawmaker pleads guilty to election charge (Wow, I had to go back a WHOLE DAY to find an instance of a democrat commiting voer fraud.)

    Hmm. St. Louis City has more names registered on the voting rolls than the voting-age population of the city, and 24,000 names were also listed as registered elsewhere in Missouri.

    @MeGrendel: One anecdote? And the voter list thing in MO is just sloppy record-keeping, it doesn`t mean that there *is* election fraud. The Justice Department is charging 120 people in the last 5 years, and many of those are just mistakenly filled out forms, not outright fraud.

    "They took God out of the platform..." God doesn`t belong in the platform. If you`re a believer God may belong in your life, but God does NOT belong in a general political platform in this country. Rush says whatever he wants, sensible or not, and middle America eats it up and follows him, forgetting (ignoring?) that the GOP doesn`t care about people, just big business. That`s how Mitt made his millions, after all!

    patchgrabber-"One anecdote?"

    So, in `patchgrabber parlance`, a Democratic State Legislator pleading GUILTY to bribing absentee voters and destroying ballots it just an `anecdote`.

    Last Presidential election there was incontrovertible evidence of voter intimidation on the part of the New Black Panthers. But seeing as they have a Bo in the White House and were never faced trial, it `never happened` in patchgrabber`s world.

    There are literally thousands of instances of voter fraud in every election. But most state laws include wording that requires the voter fraud participants to ADMIT they KNEW what they were doing was illegal. So, you ask 10,000 people `did you commit a felony`, 9,999 will answer `I didn`t know hitting someone on the head with a baseball bat was `illegal`.`.

    I`ve always said that the biggest, if not, the only reason Obama got into the office in the first place was because of his skin color.

    Working at a convenience store in the middle of a populated college town where the majority of students is black during the last election, I`ve heard many stories of black students coming in saying that they didn`t care about anything because they got their bro into the office.
    I even had my white friend say that he only voted for Obama because he was black.

    @MeGrendel: No, one instance is by definition an anecdote. You`re using one actual case and overgeneralizing it as the standard, that`s just sloppy logic. Blame Plato and Aristotle, not Patchgrabber. You then go on to suggest that there are thousands of cases, but fail to produce evidence, instead engaging in conspiracy theories.
