Comment: Ms. Fortier comments, "Obama has mentioned the name Jesus Christ in significantly more speeches than his predecessor, President George W. Bush. This is not stopping atheists from giving him a free pass, however. [. . .] Indeed, one of the greatest miracles since Obama has gotten into office is the complete silence on the part of organizations such as American Atheists to events such as Obama's 'National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation.'"

Comment: Sadly, there are those today who see the world through a prism of racism. For them, everything has racist overtones. When Eric Holder lies to Congress and is impeached, he's not impeached because he lied, it's because Republicans are racist. When Barack Obama is criticized for his policies or lack thereof, it's not because people disagree with the policies, it's because those who criticise him are racist. When those on the right reject raising the minimum wage, it's not because this action will have negative economic consequences, it's because those on the right are racist. This kind of thinking is dangerous, it's stupid, but it's the kind of thinking practiced and encouraged by those on the left.

Comment: From the referenced Watchdog article: "Todd is the same Obama sycophant who downplayed or ignored every scandal in the Obama administration, including the pallets of cash and gold shipped to Iran, Clinton's e-mail crimes, and the IRS-Tea Party scandal." Yes, it's laughable, but a lot of Americans heard Mr. Todd and believed every word he said.

Comment: Human Events writer John Hayward commented: "The comment was shocking, and highly amusing, because it so neatly confirmed the stereotypes conservatives occasionally feel guilty about holding, with regard to out-of-touch NPR liberals. You mouth-breathing Jesus freaks out in flyover country are cows to be milked for tax funding, but otherwise ignored as much as possible. It’s a damn shame that necessity forced the elegant Lady Totenberg to attend one of your primitive rituals. What was she supposed to do? It was a government function. She simply had to attend, and we’re so fortunate she returned alive, to share what she learned around those melancholy bowls of Justice Department eggnog."

Comment: The question arises: how many abortions does it take to build a strong family? If just one does it, would two make the family stronger? And if a person doesn't run around and make women pregnant, can he ever have a strong family?

Cynthia Tucker

Pulitzer Prize winner and syndicated columnist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Quote
"We haven't talked about the elephant in the room, and I don't mean the Republicans: race. Changing demographics. Fear of a white minority. Obama's election has suddenly made many white Americans aware of the loss of a white majority. That's what this crazy summer has been all about. Anti-mosque construction. Anti-immigrant raving."

In comments on the Chris Mathews TV show, September 5, 2010.

Comment: On her blog, Ms. Tucker continues her rant: "Over the last year and a half, many Americans have begun to see a deeper message in President Obama’s inauguration -- the end of the white majority. For some, especially those who are middle-aged and older, it’s a jarring and unwelcome message." The liberal mindset continues to amaze. Citizens can't be unhappy with Obama's policies and actions, they must be angry because he is part black. I'm led to conclude the politics of race will be never ending.
