Obama wades into debate over NFL
Washington Redskins´ name

Reuters, by Staff

Posted By:charliecoconut, 10/5/2013 9:37:54 PM

President Barack Obama, already embroiled in a battle over a government shutdown, jumped into another dispute on Saturday - a long-running fight over the name of the Washington Redskins NFL team. Obama said that if he owned the team, he would consider changing the name, which American Indians and others have long pilloried as racist. "I´ve got to say if I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they´ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizeable group of people, I´d think about changing it," Obama said

Hey Reuters, learn spell check. It just gets better with President Bummer. I taught in a high school where the nickname was the ´Indians´ with due respect to the race. They came for us and we told them to pound sand.

Is it true that Africans were imported to the new world to work as slaves because the Redskins refused to go along with the program?

The only people who are offended are the effeminate bedwetting America hating liberals. Most Native Americans are savvy enough not to be bothered by this sideshow.

"that was offending a sizeable group of people"

Good point, but it´s not. There is no "sizeable group of people", just a few perpetually offended and outraged liberals.

I find it hard to believe that Oblahblah ever worries about what would offend anyone, when he insults and offends every hard working, red-blooded, American every day of his existence.

He´s full of baloney...sorry, but I can´t say what he´s truly full of.

Did the Dear Leader say anything about Redskin Potatoes?

How about Indian summer? Or Indian motorcycles. Or the Cleveland Indians. Not to mention the Jeep Cherokee, Mohawk Tiles, and Ticonderoga pencils.

And what about all the cities, towns, rivers, and states names after Indians? The rivers alone should keep the Krazy Kenyan busy for years.

The only reason he can concentrate on a non-issue like this is because he isn´t paying attention to anything else.

I think I like it better when he´s out of the WH golfing.

This is simply obamas attempt to change the conversation. Get away from the negative press coverage regarding the shutdown (closing the open air monuments, voting to pay all the furloughed employees for their time off, Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi, etc., etc.)

The Redskins name is a tribute to the indian race. You don´t name a team after weaklings, otherwise we would have professional Puff Football.

I am so sorry the name of a football team irritates, annoys or angers some. Guess what. You irritate annoy and anger me, so why don´t you just change your name and go away. We have no traditions that mean anything anymore. Let´s just be politically correct ok, and rename the team, the Washington Indigenous People of North America based on the official definition from dictionary dot com:
"Native American", Noun.
1. A member of the indigenous peoples of North America.

There, it´s official. That shouldn´t annoy anger or irritate anyone now, which is the definition of offend.

We call them th eDeadskins around here.They have some of the most obnoxious and boorish fans onthe planet and I´m sure hey have sent the owner a notice they´ll cancel their season tickets if he changes the name.

There was a time when the only way you could get season tickets if somebody left them in their will.They had waiting lists for years.

Last year they had the second coming of black Jesus in RG3 but they found out he was a conservative black and the air went out of their balloon.

They already have a team up there with an oxymornic name called the Washington Wizards.This team gets top draft picks year after year and still wallow in the basement.

As though he didn´t have anything else to think about.

Well, he´d better get one of his lackeys to do some research else he once again get masses of egg on his face.

He could start here:

Noted historians have agreed that as early as the 17th century, American Indians were referred to as “Red Men” or “Red People” quite simply because of their tawny complexion and because many tribes painted their skin red. While King George II did offer generous bounties for American Indian scalps in 1755, there is absolutely no historical documentation that the word “redskin” was coined because of that.

Redskin, “a word born of disrespect, hate, and murder,” as stated in the commentary column, had its first recorded use in the early 18th century by the American Indians to describe themselves as to how they fit into the collective ethnic and political landscape of this new country; Europeans/Christians were white, Negroes/slaves were black, and they were red.

Read what history professor Nancy Shoemaker wrote in “How Indians Got to be Red,” and “I am a Red-Skin” by Ives Goddard, the Smithsonian Institution’s anthropology linguist.

Sen. John McCain is the least popular senator in the country of those surveyed by Public Policy Polling, with low marks from members of his own party, independents and Democrats. Just 30 percent of Arizona voters approve of the job the Republican senator is doing, while 54 percent disapprove, according to a PPP release Thursday. That is the worst of any senator’s polling in the nation that PPP has found.

Baucus, who has announced his intention to retire from the Senate at the end of next year, currently chairs the powerful Senate Finance Committee, which oversees tax and trade policy. He was first elected to the Senate in 1978. Obama’s choice of the 72-year-old Baucus to be ambassador to China must be confirmed by the Senate.

The Obama administration is moving toward finalizing a rule that would give alternative energy farms a pass for killing bald and golden eagles for decades, just weeks after it took legal action for the first time against a company for doing so. The rule by the Interior Department extends the length of the permits that allow farms to unintentionally kill the eagles without penalty from five to 30 years, according to department records. The rule authorizes the “non-purposeful” killing of eagles, but also will require farms to implement certain guidelines to help with eagle conservation.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
