Not sure what is in your mind @Dattebayo, but I don’t think this is simply because a black president was elected. The issue isn’t whether the president is black or white (or female). The issue is whether the president foments divisiveness as our current president and his minions have done over the last seven years.
Agreed. no one will ever call BHO the great uniter. He is a person with good oratorical skills who is, and always has been, way over his head. Almost every decision he has made since being in office has divided us along racial, ethnic and socio-economic class. He is a living, breathing example of why identity politics will never serve to unite the masses.
KJ you are correct. It's not about race it's about transformation.

If only their outrage was as vociferous on the other side. This rag is just as disingenuous as the rest of the left in demanding restraint before labeling acts of Islamic terrorism as such. Yet they want to get out the bright light and shine it on acts which may or may not be Islamophobic.
And I suppose they will be verifying all of these events before publishing them to the world?

Here we go … same song, different chorus. Instead of being racist when we criticize the president (or Hillary), we will be sexist. Never mind that the criticism levied will never be addressed, just like Hillary didn’t address the real issue that Sanders raised. What does her gender have to do with whether she is part of the establishment or not?
What a crock.

When I saw the headline starting with “Another air bag problem,” I thought that Bloomberg had officially announced getting into the presidential race.
Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! Thanks for my morning laugh :-)
An air bag is one of the nice things one can use to describe little man bloomie.
Green: You haven't heard much rambling in the last few days from Bloomberg. Third stage tertiary syphilis has him dribbling Uncle Ben's Rice and wearing a rubber diaper. He's being spoon fed mashed green peas from a Gerber baby food jar. Just so you know....
air bag/ d-bag.
Americas had an "Air Bag" problem the last 7 years
THIS HAPPENED ON OBAMA WATCH
This is what happens when you abolish American air bag companies and have Air Bags made by the Chinese.

My boss used to tell me it is a lot easier to tell the truth … that way you don’t have to keep track of all the lies you’ve told!

Need more debates to get their total debate viewership up to two digits.

Your tagline is right on the mark. Obama’s assertion “The typical woman who works full-time still earns 79 cents for every dollar the typical man does,” does not mean anything to me. (Even ignoring his own hypocrisy on the matter).
Please describe in more detail these so-called “typical” people. And, when you report your pay statistics, please be sure to compare the exact demographics, including type of job, level of responsibility, number of hours worked, total compensation (e.g., accounting for differences in non-dollar compensation) and any other attribute that makes it a credible comparison.

I propose that medical facilities post a daily scorecard to inform patients as to whether their provider is having a good day or bad day. Maybe they can do a range of smiley faces.
I sure wouldn’t want this doctor treating me on one of her bad days.
She falls right into Obamas agenda. Could be a great death panel decider.

OMG. Can you imagine what he would do with an even bigger pen and phone?!?

I’m curious if Trump has a master plan to test how outrageous he can be while still retaining his support (reference his “I could shoot someone” and still be popular comments from a few days ago). While I like his bravado and lack of fear in saying a lot of things that are on many people’s minds, I can’t deal with it any more.
Your last sentence nailed what has been nagging at me for a while. Obama has been a detestable, narcissistic, divider during his tenure to-date. And this was after he campaigned as a “healer”. I didn’t buy it when he was campaigning and he proved me out. Unfortunately, I don’t see Trump taking any different path. (And this doesn’t even get into considering whether he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing anyway).
It will be interesting to see how many more sharks the Donald can jump.
@KJGreen --- At this point, I suspect Trump always has a plan....... and a plan B .....and a plan C.....

Like Obama several years ago, Hillary doesn’t care if the results of her tax strategy are negative or if they collect less revenue. She only cares if the tax system is more “fair”.
Progressive definition of equality … make everyone equally miserable.

Wow, this article has so many windows into the liberal mind:
“it is “too early” to draw conclusions from the stabbing death of a female aid worker…”
But if it were something that matched your narrative / policy position, you’d be concluding all over the place.
“Many of those young people who come to Sweden have had traumatic experiences and there are no easy answers”
Wouldn’t want to shine a light on the issue that maybe bringing them in to the country wasn’t such a good idea after all. Plus, this statement reeks of rationalization or acceptance of this behavior as a necessary byproduct of their policy.
“She was a person who wanted to do good, who wanted to be good…”
This is a tragic event and I feel bad for the family and their loss. However, wishing the world were a less dangerous place doesn’t make it so. Thinking that you can change the behavior of more than just a few of these people is fantasy.
“We’re dealing with more incidents like these since the arrival of so many more refugees from abroad…”
Let’s implement our feel-good policy first and worry about the consequences later.
“Swedish police have been instructed to refrain from informing the public about the key identifying details of criminal suspects, including skin color, ethnicity and nationality in order to avoid being labeled racist”
Yes, we wouldn’t want to publish facts that might help solve a crime or apprehend a suspect, would we?

“I don’t know what being lied to means.” How Clintonesque. (what the meaning of “is” is). Although, I suspect she does know what being lied to means — like the guy at the bar who told her she was hot.
 January 25, 2016 at 4:22pm
Exactly what I was thinking … if someone can’t reach the bar, then lower it.
 January 25, 2016 at 2:58pm
Wonder if the media will run with a “headline story” about Hillary’s break for water like they did with Rubio in 2013 … doubt it.
 January 22, 2016 at 12:04pm
Nice strategy by the attorneys. Raise a ruckus about all those whose judgment is “tainted” by comments of Trump (or anyone else for that matter), thus tainting all those who had not heard such comments.
Also, Bergdahl’s attorneys may want to look up the legal definition of “defamatory”. Most legal definitions include the concept of “intentional false communications”. I’m not seeing too much “false” in Trump’s comments.
He's going to be tried in military court under the UCMJ; not the same rules as with citizens. The guy is indeed already guilty. He should be put in front of a firing squad; life in jail's too good for the traitor. :)

Is anyone as weary as I am of these pols who have to tell us how rational (e.g., “common sense”) their actions are?
Of course, the implication is that if you don’t agree with them, then you must not have common sense.
 January 19, 2016 at 3:07pm
I don’t think they’ve really thought this one out.
So … the religion of peace (and honor killings) is going to permit their youth to be educated in the finer details of sexuality, addressing the “acute need for knowledge about everything from sexually transmitted diseases and condoms to abortion rights, gender equality, legislation and LGBTQ rights.” And this doesn’t even include the concept of respecting women.
Will work out just like Obama/SCOTUSCARE!!!!!! Would be better off teaching all non Muslims how to handle a gun and lots of target practice cause they WILL NEED IT SOON!!!

Does anyone else see the irony in Hillary commenting on this situation? Let’s juxtapose her comments from January 23, 2013 with this situation:
“With all due respect, the fact is we had” [some very sick people]. “Was it because of” [incompetence] “or was it because of” [some government bureaucrats] “out for a walk one night who decided that they’d” [go and poison some citizens]? “What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator…”
Not trying to minimize or rationalize the water crisis in Flint, however, this is yet another great example of Hillary’s standard for others being different than the standard for herself.
 January 18, 2016 at 10:14pm
Great explanation of the problem and its timeline. Thanks for sharing.
