Disagreement = racism?

What happened to judging a person by his actions, by the content of his character? Because Obama is black, does that give him a free pass to turn this free republic into a socialist junta? What would Martin Luther King Jr think of President Barack Obama?

I do not agree with what you have said and I actuall y think it is a bit racist to ask because he is black does that give him a right. i do not think he is doing as bad as everyone is making it out to be. it took bush 8 years to create this mess and everyone wants Obama to fix it in months!!

Bush didn't create this mess... the democrats did.and Comrade 0bama had a big hand in creating this mess. He has also increased the deficit by more than 3 times the amount that Bush did in 8 years. I suggest you get a clue.

Wow, we are being a bit harsh here aren't we? I am fully aware of the situations. Bush was our President therefore HE created the mess. he went along with anything because he is such a dumbas* he couldn't think for his self. We were fine before him...

Well, I suppose Martin Luther King Jr. was a racist then...cause HE said his DREAM was that black people waited for the day when they were judged for the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. You don't do people of color any good by protecting them from the consequences of bad choices. So why is it that Obama gets a free pass to lie, cheat and steal from the American people who elected him? skin? I don't think so. He's yet to prove he's any different from the white politicians in the past who lied, cheated and stole from the American people. His character stinks to high heaven!

I think MLK would have a very low opinion of Comrade 0bama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the rest of the race-baiting crowd. Comrade 0bama goes against everything that MLK believed in.

I hadn't even thought about that. You're right--MLK Jr hasn't come up once.

The racism cry has really gotten under my skin lately. Those who actually believe that opposing Obama's policies equals racism show true ignorance. It's like saying that if you voted for Obama, you're racist against whites. But wait! Obama is half white! So where does that leave us?

Evidently it isn't racist to beat up the only white kid on the bus so I guess if someone punched him they could claim they were punching his white side. Makes sense to me.

Obama himself does not seem to believe this but there is no shortage of his supporters who do. It has become the default defense for them when they cannot argue something on it's own merrits. Obama himself has stated several times that the racism charges are insomuch rediculous, cripe even on David letterman he said something like, "Well, I was black BEFORE the election", when asked abut the racial nature of the dissent out there. While I don't think King would have too many issues with Obama himself (other than constitutional issues) he WOULd have major issues with the endless abuse with charges and acusations of racism.

"Racism" has become the democrats' rallying cry because virtually the whole nation is opposing Obama on healthcare, taxation, government takeovers, and a whole host of other issues he is gung ho about. What else can they say? It is just a lame excuse, and he doesn't have the right to do all those socialist things against the will of the American people.

I agree with you on the fact that people should be judged by their actions and character regardless of their ethnicity. No one should get a free pass, but you are insinuating that he might think he should get a free pass, which isn't true. On the Letterman show, when it was brought up that racism might be a reason why some are so against him on the healthcare thing, he pointed out that "you know I was a black man before I got elected", he meant that people elected him and so he does NOT cry racism when someone disagrees with him.
