"Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., told CNN on Tuesday that some Republican claims that Rice is “incompetent” may be racial in nature. “These are code words,” Clyburn said, adding that “these kinds of terms that those of us — especially those of us who were born and raised in the South — we’ve been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them.” http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/11/20...-language-now/
Incompetent people do hear that term often and I sure it does bother them. But, for now, it doesn't mean you're incompetent unless you're white. If you're black it's just a racist slur because there are no incompeten6t black people. Certainly not Ms. Rice or President Obama. Now Gov. Romney is clearly incompetent. That's why he's had no option but to go into politics. He can't succeed at anything else.
No, really, guys, we should be anticipating Obama doing well. We should be pretty sure he won't, but we should hope for it. I voted for the guy once. His performance smartened me up in a real hurry. The majority voted him in. When things go to hell, those 47% folks will be the ones who really feel the pain, and to be consoled by Obama saying he feels their pain ain't going to make it any less painful.
