If more than his 46 % of President Obama haters had gone brain-dead and voted Mitt Romney into office,not only a real good chance all he would have been is John Boehner’s “yes-man”,but also a good chance,since Romney stated after the election he didn’t want to be President anyway,he probably… Read more »

Mongo is brown, Mongo’s black son in law didn’t vote for Obama. Mongo knows this because his pink daughter told him so.

So, by your reasoning, if a white person didn’t vote for Obama, does that make them a racist?

BobK, you owe Deja a lunch. He proved your point about intolerance. You either vote Deja’s way or you are a hater and a racist. No other explanation possible.

I edited out your last sentence which was unnecessarily insulting. I don’t know – I guess Mr. Romney truly lost me when he was caught griping about the “47%” of Americans who think they are entitled (to health care and food??) In today’s world, we need leaders willing to accept… Read more »

Re: BobK –
“In your little mind…”
Is it an impossibility for those calling themselves conservatives to make any statement in a civil manner without sounding exactly like their spokespersons and heroes Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or Ann Coulter?

Maybe ” Watching U” shouldn’t be so quick to post allegations that where unfounded in a court of law. Why not update? The outcome of those allegations is available. Just as easy to obtain as pulling up achieved info. But that wouldn’t serve “Watching U” motives. huh
