Mitt Romney's Blatant Opportunism

By Caballero_69, published on Sep 14, 2012

With his disgraceful comments regarding the Foreign Service and the Obama administration in the aftermath of the murder of American diplomats in Libya, Myth Romney revealed he is a rapid-response opportunist enfolded steeped in cynicism and smugly satisfied as such.

On Tuesday morning, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement which “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims—as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions... (more)

The Bogeyman Myth of the Hateful Bigot

By Thom Hunter, published on Oct 27, 2011

I have been told the church was mostly silent on that day.

Thank you! Mr. President

By Caballero_69, published on Apr 29, 2011

...there never was any credible, investigative effort to find a true answer to a genuine question. If it had simply been a factual question, the effort would have vanished days after Dr. Fukimo answered the question. What Americans, and particularly white Americans, must confront is the bigotry and race baiting involved in and impelling this deplorable saga. Despite howls of protest, no elaborate rationales, and no elusive evasions provide any other credible explanation for the entire nonsensical, disreputable campaign that launched and sustained this bogus controversy.
