Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

"Striking out again myth"

Hey man if stating that and feeeeeling that makes you feel all warm inside filled with contentment that you are right...well carry on then sport.

I don't need to feel right on this issue because I am confident I am right on this issue.

Over and out roger ramjet! Huzzah!

You know who am I kidding! You won't admit the the truth about climate change.

You sure as heck wont admit any truthiness about racist attacks on Obama coming from the right.

A denier through and through.

We'll play the same game with this issue that we play on climate change with you.

Whats funny though is that I have seen and heard first hand racist comments and the showing of racist pictures of Obama from people I work with.

I am sure you have too.

But would you admit that? No.

The thing about racists is that few are overt about it.

Rumors and innuendo is a favored tactic of racists.

And if it isn't racism its xenophobia.

If you dig for it you can find a Romney supporter at a rally with a shirt on that said put the white back into the WhiteHouse.

Another racist conservative.

"93% of blacks voted for Obama. Do you think race was a factor????"

So?!!!!! 100% of whites voted for a white president before Obama.

All the hubbub about Kenya which involved a huge number of TP'ers. Just take your pick.

I would like to think that the majority of Americans could care less about race but those that utterly detest the President, it's hard to say that there isn't a prominent element of racism in their hate.

Actually it seems pretty close to both to me with those that make it an issue. Though of course most of those that harbor racist thoughts are going to be more subtle than those who are speaking out against racism.

I'm still interested Ithink in your answers to this, "Do you even know what Marxism is? How is he turning the US into that?"

I see nothing in that list that is unique to him Ithink. Every single thing you listed has been done by other Presidents in similar ways.

Obamacare, which was approved by the other 2 branches of govt, hasn't been around long enough to even see what the results will ultimately be.

Obama didn't kill anyone at Benghazi. It's not his fault their are idiots in the world.

The VA, IRS, Border issues, Fast and Furious, Iraq...etc are all ongoing problems that predate Obama or he did not take direct oversight with.

While all of "your" points on your list are legit to criticize Obama on, you have an unrealistic perspective on Obama's place within the issues.

Posted 127 days ago.

Let me count the ways he has hurt America. He is in charge.

1. Obamacare

2. VA...dead and sick veterans

3. EPA excess regulations

4. Fast and Furious

5. Benghazi

6. Chaos eruption in Iraq

7. Corrupt IRS terrorizing citizens

8. Terrible economic news TODAY

9. Border lawlessness

10. Only enforcing laws he chooses

11. Goes around congress

12. His foreign policies are disasters

13. Spying on American citizens

14. No common sense. Releases 5 bad terrorists to kill more Americans.

15. Priorities are wrong. Golf seems more important than his duties.

16. Divides the nation racially by his words and actions.

"Did those Ameicans suddenly become racist? How silly."

No one is saying that the approval ratings of the President is a sign of racism. The topic is about those that detest the President of the United States from the beginning because he is black.

"Obama has been a disaster for America."

Perhaps he is, time will tell.

"I feel bad that our first black president is an embarrassment and has hurt our country."

You are embarrassed with your President? How has he hurt the country exactly that is unique to him and him alone?

"He is trying to turn us into a third world Marxist country."

Do you even know what Marxism is? How is he turning the US into that?

"And that is indeed bad, red Kendall."

Well...talk about being racist. Just because I'm ginger does not mean you get to call me red.

Approval of Obama is low in the polls. When he was elected, he was high in the polls. Did those Ameicans suddenly become racist? How silly.

Obama has been a disaster for America. It does not matter if he is black, white, or poka dotted. I feel bad that our first black president is an embarrassment and has hurt our country. He is tryng to turn us into a third world Marxist country. And that is indeed bad, red Kendall.

Many blacks who love America would have done a good job.

While I am not sure what "much" means in this case....race is a factor. We should all agree on that.

Does race account for all? Or even 80% of the opposition? No..I doubt it but no one is talking about legitimate opposition but the irrational kind. From what I have seen, even if everything had happened the same but instead with a Hillary as President, I do not believe their would be this level of hatred from the far Right as their toward Obama.

Tired is right. We can't logically claim that race drives much of the opposition to Obama. We haven't enough information to make that judgment.

Many factors--ideology, culture, race, economic advantage, social, physical attractiveness, etc.--enter in. We vary in how important we consider each of the different factors.

Tiredofit wins this one for sure.

I'm sorry, perhaps you can explain how the Black Panthers being racist somehow negates the fact that their are white racists and dislike Obama strictly because of his skin color.

I am sorry you do not understand Tired that their is a difference between the way the chimp imagery is used between Bush and Obama.

But try something you rarely do and answer a question. Was the use of the chimp imagery for Bush used for the same intent as when it was used for Obama? If not, then why did they use it?

Answer if you can, admit you can't or that you simply won't.
