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.

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.

There is a race element to this presidency but who is constantly reminding us of his race, his detractors or his supporters??? Take a moment and think about that. Be honest at least with yourself.

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.

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.

Let's look at the list shall we?

1. Tired uses insults...check.

2. Tired ignores that which he doesn't like...check.

3. Tired goes off on a odd tangent about something I never said...check.

Good job Tired, you fulfill everything we have come to expect from you :)

sniff sniff what is that, oh its desperation.

Tiredofit

There are racists in this world, like the black pathers at the polling place saying you are about to be ruled by the black man, does not represent mainstream thought. Geez

Tiredofit

You have NO proof, just innuendo and BS. Yeah you have a lot of it so its cumulative. LOL

Tiredofit

So back to the question, where is the evidence that opposition, namely MINE is based on race, YOU GOT NADDA

Posted 28 days ago.

Tiredofit

Oh so you Jimmy have an inside track on the logic behind the images, where did you get that, straight out of your arse. So two presidents are compared to monkeys by some folk wishing to lampoon the office. YOU treat one different than another based on race, now WHO is the racist again??? lol what a maroon

Let's go with a hypothetical for a moment. Let's say that it would have been President Hillary Clinton instead of Obama and everything else is still the way it has been.

Do you think Tired that the public would be just as hard on Hillary as they are on Barack?

Posted 28 days ago.

Kendall78

"Proof? Where was the proof?"

It's cumulative. You add all of it together along with what others have witness and saw. You don't approach it as if you can cut out what you don't seem to like.

The Bush example isn't comparable at all. They used the chimp to represent his supposed ignorance. It is quite obvious that Obama's public personae does not ignorance, so why use a big lip chimp swinging in the trees?
