CNN's Acosta to Romney: 'If You Somehow
Win,' How Would You 'Assure Blacks
You'd Be Their President Also?'

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 9/26/2012 12:32:52 AM

CNN's Jim Acosta on Tuesday's Situation Room asked what many will think was a truly offensive question. "If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?" (video follows with transcript and commentary): JIM ACOSTA, CNN: African-Americans have a tremendous sense of pride that there is the first African-American president in the White House. If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?

Comments:
Do you think the President, who lauds the campaign group "Blacks for Obama", would get asked a such a question about whites?

Exactly, Poster! And if he did, Chrissy Matthews would scream like the girl he is!

Unlike our current POTUS, the President of the United States has historically been and should always be the President to all the country's citizens. Our current Resident is not and has proved it time and again when he only pays attention to those who agree with his ideology. Anyone else to him is persona non grata.

Blacks should be proud of the unemployment rate in the black community. Proud to have record numbers of single mothers, highest foodstamp participation ever, most blacks in prison than before the first black president.

Tell me again, what are the best three things Obama has done for the Black Community since he got into office?

The answer to that question should be: Are they American's? Then, I am their President. I am so sick of these gotcha questions, I am so sick of the race baiting. When I answer a question now about my race, I snswer HUMAN!

The question asked is so disgusting -- but it serves the purpose of showing Acosta's for the complete donkey he is.

No fool. I'm only for my people.
You look like you could be 'my son'. Or not.
I intend to have guys in berets at the polls, wielding nightsticks and screaming racial epithets. So watch out. Be one of 'my people' , my colour. Or just be a dapper dresser.

How was that for primetime, lamestream? /s/

Here is the trap they think they can catch Romney with.

"If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, would you then chain him, like JoeBiteMe says? And, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would not beat and chain them, also?"

The real worry is that Romney is promising to deliver opportunity. Many Americans of ALL ethnicities are desperate for opportunity. CNN is worried that this is taking votes away from 0, so they are setting out IEDs hoping to blow Romney out of the race with a big bang. RACE CARD!

The problem with using the RACE CARD, is that if it does not work, there is noting else let.

Obama is spending billions on black causes we just don't see. I mean HUD has gone from being in the rental business and into the home loan business with tons of bailouts to stop foreclosures.
Romney,if elected is going to have to grapple with the government intrusion into the home loan business.Fannie/Freddie are at least trying to clean up their act,to the chagrin of the left.

We're seeing tougher standards for average people who should qualify for a loan but are getting turned down.On the other side,we're seeing reformulations in credit scores for the underachievers in our life (and wallets).

This double standard in home loans has the goal of diversity in every neighborhood.

The black community in Kansas City has the highest crime rates, the worst education/graduation rates, the highest unemployment rates, the highest dependency on the federal welfare plantation, and the highest rates of illegitimate births. Obama has done nothing to change these facts. If Romney is elected, it will be without a single black vote and he will get nothing but contempt and hate from the black community. Romney owes the black community nothing. They have made their bed in the dependency camp. They are quite frankly part of the problem of this country in terms of the social problems and the entitlement spending leading us to the fiscal cliff. If the black community wants to be part of the solution, then they can join reform minded citizens who want to put an end to the Obama nonsense.

After all of the divisive race baiting from the Obamunists, I would expect that 95% of blacks would never accept Romney, and in fairness, I have to say I could never accept Obama after the way he has stoked hatred against european-americans throughout his lifetime. The fact that he stands by Eric Holder; his relationships with Rev. Wright, his father, Frank Davis, and throwing his grandmother under the bus as a "typical white person". Who knows how long the damage will last, thanks to all the people who voted for him because of his skin color.

Despite the asinine question, Romney handled himself well.

Can't wait for Barak to flip him off in the debate.

Romney's answer should have been:

I would do everything within my power to get the black unemployment rate down from 16%. I would never treat blacks as bad as this current President has.

KC said it best and it is a plain and simple fact that "Romney owes the black community nothing. They have made their bed in the dependency camp." No need to purposely PO them but unless you are a RAT politician, there is nothing here for you.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:52:45 PM     Post Reply
Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Vampires, nudists, snakes: Nobody

Orlando Sentinel, by Scott Maxwell    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:09:47 PM     Post Reply
Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

Brothers´ app blocks texting

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

Tens of Thousands of Illegal

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

These are the 634 runways where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed after a potential hijacking. Today Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said investigators believe flight MH370´s disappearance is the result of ´deliberate action´ by someone on the plane. During a dramatic press conference, he said satellite evidence showed the aircraft´s transponder was turned off and it change direction shortly before it vanished. (Snip) Mr Razak said it is believed to have been heading in a westerly and then north westerly direction.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
