    Do you totally discount what President Carter had to say?

    You know as well as I that much of the opposition to Obama is steeped in racism. How much, what percentage?...That's anybody's guess, but you can't ignore the fact that it does exist.

    I do not deny that some people are racists. There are some white people who hate black people for being black and there are some black people who hate white people for being white.

    I just fail to see how any of that matters or why that is the big issue.

    If there is any racial bias in Rep. Wilson's remarks then shame on him.

    Having grown up in the '60s I can't believe there is any reference to racism any longer. The reality is that prejudice is everywhere, all the time, but it is now includes everyone. When I hear current political leaders telling me that they need to reach into my wallet to a greater percentage than others, that is prejudice. When my nephew can't get into a college because he is the wrong color that is prejudice. When my niece doesn't get a promotion because there aren't enough minorities in management, that is prejudice. But, it's politically incorrect to complain and I don't want to.

    My question is why didn't the President stand up to Wilson at the time. I want my President to be a bad a**. I wish he would have chewed Wilson's butt off right there. Instead he just gave Wilson the "teacher glare". Is that what he does when Putin says something he doesn't like? Instead of spending time (our money) chastising Wilson in Congress, why not give facts that make Wilson out to be a liar?

    Bait all you want...your prejudice shows in your comment...I'm stating the fact that everyone has some form of prejudice to overcome and I used my life as an example. The use of labels is the first indicator that their is bigotry at work. If you have a problem with my post, great, challenge it; but please don't categorize me. It once again demonstrates your point isn't about facts or discussion, but about slander and bigotry.

    Check out my upcoming on Football...you'll enjoy it.

    Has Carter yet revealed what acts or statements made him think Wilson's outburst was "racist"?

    Or has he simply made the general accusation, with no attempt to back it up with any facts?

    Who cares what the all time Worst President in history has to say anyway.

    Is that how desperate Obama has gotten, that he is trying to get a boost from Jimmy Carter?

    How funny?

    Well typically if you want to claim someone is racist, shouldn't you wait until they actually do or say something racist.

    Wilson did neither by yelling "you lie."

    Carter the worst President in history...hardly.

    In C-Span's 2009 Historians Survey of Presidential Leadership in which 65 presidential historians ranked the 42 former occupants of the White House, Carter finished at 25th...while your hero George W. Bush ranked 36th. James Buchanan was rated the worst of all time.

    I'll go with the opinion of these Presidential historians over that of a cranky wingnut anytime.

    Jimmy Carter was a very bad president and very wrong on economic policies.

    Strangely he and Obama have that lack of dealing well with economic issues in common.
    Both have done harm to the US.

    Carter is now wrong by calling Republicans (such as Wilson) racist, without any proof.
