• To me the issue is not that BO is above 50%, though that is huge, the issue is McCain is stuck at 40% and he would have to really shake up the race to get anywhere near 48 or 49%.

  • comment on a post The Hillary Lady Down the Street over 5 years ago

    I think we can all agree that ""Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in '84 and '88. Jackson ran a good campaign.  And Obama ran a good campaign here." is nothing more that a racist comment.

    Just like suggesting that LBJ had anything to do with passing civil rights.  The 3 am add was racist.  Hell HRC is white she must be racist.  Bill Clinton is a white man he must be racist if he deoesnt support BO.

    i can speak for one HRC support.  I will vote for BO, and will give him and the DNC money but after the race baiting smear campaign run against Bill and Hillary by his supporters he will never by my president.

    And my guess is BO supporters would be voting for McCain if HRC had won the election.  In fact how many times have i heard BO supporters say they wouldnt vote for BO if HRC as the VP.  Just saying your post is typical.  HRC and her supporter are nothing but low info racist voters.

    But now we have to vote for BO.  Well at least you are right about the last part.

    I dont want to extend this but people can agree to disagree and as i recall that is what being a democrat is about.  HRC supporters like me (and many oters) are very upset about a lot of what happened in the spring.

    IMHO it seems like it is not enough to support and vote for BO (and give moneis to the party) we have to give props to the likes of DB and if we dont we are trolls.

    I think i can no likes being call a "punk who doesnt know Jack about racism" and if we object to that we get slammed.  Just some food for thought.

    By the way i logged in from a new computer work and used by second log in by mistake and it has a very similar login.

    And I take totally responsibility for that and that was a mistake on my part that will correct.

  • on a comment on Donna Brazile Unleashed over 5 years ago

    Sure.  As soon i hear something from you.  The preson who said a "bunch of punks who dont know jack shit about racism".

    Still waiting to hear.  Those are some serious words so lets hear it.  Because right now you are just another dude gong around yelling fire (racism) to make some point.

    And by the way i dont remember saying i know more about racism that DB or anyone else.  I will check but that doesnt sound like something i would say.

    I guess you made that up to.  Maybe you should use the troll card next.

  • on a comment on Donna Brazile Unleashed over 5 years ago

    And my friend your posts seem like nothing but insults.  But i assume that is what you consider discussion.

    But i guess you know all about my character.

    You called me out last night in a post so stop whinning about charactor traits.  If you dont like what i said about your throwing around the word racism then just respond.  But give it a rest as to how i should act.  

    david

  • on a comment on Donna Brazile Unleashed over 5 years ago

    Thank you for spelling it out.  DB is part of a big time money making lobbying firm in washington.  Her only interest is getting on TV and her own self promotion.

    If Gore had used some of the Clinton team to run his campaign and not Ms DB Gore would have won and we wouldnt have had 8 years of dumbass.

  • on a comment on Donna Brazile Unleashed over 5 years ago

    This is what is so offensive about your posts.

    "a bunch of bitter punks who know JACK SHIT about racism".  This is what i call Racial blackmail.  What you are doing is playing the race card.  We dont know jack about racism?  How would you know??  But the fact is you dont know or dont care.  You try to bully people by screaming the word racism.

    Maybe you will tell us about racism since you seem to think no one knows what it is but you.

    I would like to hear some stories because i have a ton of personal ones.

    Sweet: Obama did NOT "hold the title" of a University of Chicago law school professor.
    By Lynn Sweeton March 28, 2008 6:25 PM |

    Read the 2nd paragraph from the quote where Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the school.  She says and i quote "He did not hold the title of professor of law,".  

    But  why dont you and you buds hide rate this too so no one can see the truth.

    WASHINGTON--The University of Chicago released a statement on Thursday saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school--but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed on Friday.

    "He did not hold the title of professor of law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the school, on East 60th St. in Chicago

    The U of C statement was posted on the school's website two days after the Clinton campaign issued a memo headlined "Just Embellished Words: Senator Obama's Record of Exaggerations & Misstatements." The memo was generated by the Clinton campaign as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) was put on the defensive for claiming incorrectly that she dodged sniper fire while First Lady when her plane landed in Bosnia.

    Another university spokesman, Josh Schonwald, said the Obama campaign did not request that the statement be generated and that it was posted because reporters were calling the school with questions about Obama's status. However, the Obama campaign was interested in making sure reporters saw the U of C statement.

    The university statement said, "From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School." The school probably did not mean to imply that Obama became a University of Chicago professor a year out of law school. But the word "served" is key--Nagorsky said Obama carried out, or served, a function of a professor--teaching a core curriculum course while a senior lecturer--while at the same time not holding down that rank.

    At issue in the Clinton memo was Obama's claims--mostly specifically on several direct mail pieces produced for his 2004 U.S. Senate race-- that said he was a law professor at the university.

    Obama graduated Harvard Law School in 1991. He was a lecturer at the U. of Chicago law school between 1992 and 1996. During this time he was an attorney at the law firm of Miner, Barnhill & Galland. In his first years of teaching, he had only one course.

    He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 1996 and his teaching load eventually increased to three courses a year, less than the load of a professor. Obama won a state Senate seat in 1996. Obama maintained his senior lecturer post from 1996 to 2004, when he took a leave to run for the U.S. Senate.

    Nagorsky said there is a major distinction between a lecturer and senior lecturer, though both are not full-time positions. She said the status of a senior lecturer is "similar" to the status of a professor and Obama did teach core courses usually handled only by professors. While Obama was also part of the law school community, his appointment was not part of an academic search process and he did not have any scholarly research obligations which professors often do.

    In August of 2004, I wrote a column about Obama's U.S. Senate campaign literature saying he was a law professor at the U of C when he was a senior lecturer on leave at the school. Neither the school nor anyone in the Obama campaign complained at the time.

    The University of Chicago did Obama no favor by saying he was a law professor when he wasn't. This parsing is not necessary. There is nothing degrading about being a senior lecturer and bringing to students the experience of a professional in the field.

    Really that is an offical statement form the University of Chicago.  Who signed it?  Because i dont see any signautre.  DO yo.  And i read it and it is so parsed it doesnt say anything.

    You might want to read really slowing here when the university office says "Obama did not hold the title of a University of Chicago law school professor.  Agian try to read this really slowly so as you can digest the meaning.  "NEVER HELD THE TITLE OF LAW SCHOOL PROFESSOR.

    The title of Professor in academic means something and requires years and years of academic service and it is a title not given out to part time faculty.

    Shouldnt you be going around hide rating anyone you dont like or agree with.  That seems to be you MO.  My guess is you dont really know what bitter means.  If you did you wont speak so un-wisely.  But you must be in a good mood since you didnt do you usual "go back to redstate.com line" that you use when anyone disagress with you.

  • on a comment on Donna Brazile Unleashed over 5 years ago

    You mean when Bo claimed he was a Professor of constitutional law when he was no more than a part time instructor at the University of Chicago.  When the University had to hold a press conference stating BO was never a Professor of Constitituional Law.  You mean that.

    But of course anyone raising any questions about BO is baddd, must go to redstate.com., blab, blab, blab.  Pease.

    BO was a part time teacher at the University of Chicago and anyone who thinks he is a Professor of Law likely thinks Bush is one of the great american presidents.
