    I see your point, Eric, and there are plenty of honest disagreements to be had with this President; I have a few myself.

    Opposing the health care bill isn’t necessarily a manifestation of prejudicial sentiment. But in light of the birther movement — which made its way into the halls of Congress — the use of the n-word before the final vote, the overreaction to ACORN, the sudden rise in hate groups, the secessionist rhetoric, and the fact that 25 percent of Republicans believe he’s the anti-Christ, you can’t deny there’s not a racial component to it. Keep in mind racism isn’t only about skin, but also about religion and heritage.

    IMO, those who have genuine disagreements with this President must take great steps to renounce this stuff. I’m talking about the leaders of the Republican party. It’s an amazing chance to seize moral high ground, and they don’t grab it.

    It’s all in the eye of the beholder. Would there be as much venom were this Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd or Joe Biden running the show? I don’t believe there would be. I could be wrong, and it’s obviously something we’ll never truly know. But that’s what I believe.

    Don’t ya just hate it when people blame the disagreement of issues on racism? It just makes my blood boil. I’ll tell you what…a free drink to anyone who hears a racial term used at a “tea party”. I don’t care if we have a green skinned man running the show, I would still oppose the health care bill.
