why would anyone think you had knowledge of scripture when 1) you consider it irrelevant and 2) you openly admit you refuse to look at it.......obviously your statements have demeaned your credibility as a theologian.....it's not the fault of my pointing it out, it's the fault of your statement in the first place......
Damn Yankee - I agree with you that un elected bureaucrats shouldn't supersede congress, perhaps you should take up that same argument with all of the 236
members of the House and the 41 senators that have signed the Norquist tax pledge. See this is the problem with you conservative hypocrites, your the classic case of the double standard. You let a stand up comedian paralyze the country. In case you didn't know, Grover Norquist is a comedian by trade..!!

Telling, indeed. Completely forgetting the fact that if not all, then some of the Republican Party is either throwing Obama and his initiatives "under the proverbial bus" or obstructing and undermining his presidency for personal reasons (i.e. "he's a liberal black, and therefore party to the"imagined" Democratic line of "handouts for the able-bodied" and welfare monies for all"....he's a socialist/Nazi/Marxist/Communist/Muslim who is catering to the Arab World, and can't wait to impose Sharia Law on unwitting Americans...he's illegitimate, not a bona fide citizen, etc.....)
Oh, but the right's embracing of Herman Cain ( who is doing nothing more that "toting the white Republican man's water", like a good slave, and talking the lingo), somehow, means that all the racist and bigoted rhetoric aimed at Obama, then and now, is forgiven, as they have come to their senses, and found their "great white hope" in a Stephin Fetchit negro, who will do as he is told (undoubtedly, by the Koch Bros., the RNC, and Big Business) and not appear as a rogue or a maverick, or worse, catering to the common people. Bull to the shit.
Are you so blind? Do you think the left is so stupid as not to see what is going on?
And what are you talking about? Reports have it that Obama has more assassination threats against him that any president in memory or history.
You can deny the machinations, manipulations, the "new lows" and the racism of the right, but there is ample documentation, in all forms of media and communication to verify the truth. Denial ain't a river up in Egypt. And there is trouble in River City.
Let me translate this into "sane"...
That the right would find a candidate who believes as they do and stands for the same things is not that surprising. That he happens to be black is something pretty much only the left dwells on with such incredible claims as "they are racist because they'll vote for him".
What his candidacy has done is underline solely one thing. If a black man thinks differently than African-Americans on the left, he is rejected because of his color by the left in a more virulent manner than any white candidate would be.
Because of his color the left hates him more than any white in the same position.
The question is its own answer.
I can remember the first coloured MP in the UK, his name was Bernie Grant, I think. It wasn't until he was elected and was about to make his maiden speech that my wife said something to the tune of, 'Oh thats the MP for ??.' and very much as an afterthought, 'I wonder if his family is from Jamaica.'
