    As you might have noticed, I'm on a BBC kick right now. I find BBC far more balanced in their reporting than MSNBC, CBS, CNN and so on.

    This was shockingly unbelievable that Obama would actually say something correct. From the same guy that said a solution to our oil problem was inflating our tires, he now says something completely correct.

    That is the biggest problem. Can government do anything right? And the answer from those in my political camp (a very small membership I might add) is:

    Socialism has only been tried a few hundred times now, and consistently caused destruction and usually death. So no, government can't do anything right. Katrina and the sub-prime housing bust, as well as this 'stealfromus' has proven...

    No, government can't do anything right. That's exactly why we are so pissed at you politicos.

    So score one for Obama. He got it right this time.

    Of course our President is right on his interpretation about race... he's an equal oppertunity guy not a racist.

    We've been telling you this for like 2 years now! Hey just the other day he called Kanye West a jackass. He doesn't care... it is what it is.

    And Andy you're so cute!;)

    You love to play that... I'll only tell a sliver of truth and leave out all the rest because the rest would make me look stupid. Let's take tire inflation. That's actually a Department of Energy test comparison study that President Obama was merely repeating... isn't it? Come on... isn't it?

    Fact Check:

    John McCain and his Republican Party are gleefully mocking Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's suggestion that properly inflated tires could help save oil. The thing is, there's truth to it.

    Obama told voters that they can take steps individually to save energy.

    THE FACTS:

    The Department of Energy estimates that keeping tires properly inflated can help improve gas mileage by about 3.3%. It's one step the agency recommends to reduce fuel costs, along with removing items from the trunk, replacing clogged air filters and getting regular tuneups.

    Besides the recommendation to keep tires properly inflated, Obama also suggested providing incentives for people to trade in gas guzzling vehicles for more fuel-efficient cars; investing in research and development to produce new fuel-saving technologies like long-running batteries; encouraging innovation in alternative energies; and retrofitting buildings to make them more energy efficient.

    The problem is Obama and the liberal media is driving the country down the tubes
    and making race relations worse. You hear all the race baiting and name calling
    on the liberal side now. We even have an ex-president calling over half the country racists!
    Obama is enjoying this!

    Obama revealed his racist views, by condeming White police officers and his own white grandmother. He isn't the role model for America, if he sat in Rev Wright church for 20 years and never objected to the hate!

    But what people need to ask themselves is this:
    If I don't have a job now, how am I going to prosper in America?

    Obama is destroying jobs for all races, no matter what the media is reporting!

    If you don't have a job you can't prosper regardless of all the rest!

    In the nature of what Obama was talking about..why dont you show it was based on race...You cant. Fact is my freind gets arresting in his own house like that, I am going to side with them from the start and race has zero to do with it. You dont think it has more to do with the fact it was his freind, and less with the fact the cop was white? Nooo thats impossible never,,,,He must be racist...

    But you must have said this becuse you hate black people....There can be no other reason, none. I will just act like you and go with it, facts be damned.
