It's the truth.

That's not the truth. That's blind speculation.

I could see Obama winning as a Hispanic man.

After 8 years of Bush, Joe Biden could have won the '08 election.

After all the Romney gaffes, any Democrat could have won in '12.

You can thank the ineptitude of the GOP for Obama.

I think I like this Obama though, actually tackling race head on and discussing it instead of dithering in the middle trying not to piss anyone off.

Except there's no issue to tackle here. The only race issue is the one manufactured by the media and race baiters like Sharpton, Jackson and Obama himself.

Blacks do get different treatment from authority figures and strangers, any black man will tell you that. Constantly citing Sharpton and Jackson is akin to minorities constantly citing Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh as the spokespeople for whites. The vast majority of black people are level headed people just trying to get ahead, and it is very frustrating when you are a contributing member of society yet often treated with suspicion.

Exactly, and you don't have to be black to see it. Anyone who thinks that Trayvon, had he been the one following Zimmerman around with a loaded gun, ended up in a fight and shot Zimm, would not have landed in jail the very first night is completely blind to reality.

after reading more facts on the case, it seems she did a bit more than she's told us .. 20 is still a bit much but from reading the evidence, she definitely did some illegal shit .. how much time she should get I don't know though
