    Is the increasingly desperate Romney campaign trying to shift the focus off the recent unflattering revelations about Romney's record by playing the race card - or does this comment reveal the real racist underbelly of Romney and the Repubs?

    Based on the comments for that article some good has come out of it. People are donating more to President Obama's re-election campaign and have signed up to volunteer.

    Psssst...... Let me let you in on a dirty little secret. YOU and your kind are the racists.





    I didn't attack you.
    Yet you're attacking me and calling me a racist.

    Are you in the habit of calling people you disagree with "racists"?

    topathlete saidIf you look at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Anglo-Saxon there are 13 different definitions that deal with common British-US heritage. Only 2 of the 13 definitions even mention race. It seems much is being made of nothing. Mentioning the common British-US heritage is not inappropriate on a trip involving US and British people.

    It seems the left is really grasping at straws. Really 2 of 13.




    BULLSHIT.

    "Anglo-Saxon" may have additional meanings too - but to suggest that it doesn't mean the white race and white culture is a total lie.

    It seems the Repubs have no shame about lying their asses off.

    I would just add for context - Obama giving the Queen an iPod of his speeches and giving the British PM a DVD locked to the North American region and encoded with the North American video system does demonstrate an insensitivity or ignorance of British life, and it has nothing to do with race.


    But it begs the question why does President Obama allegedly not "fully appreciate" the Anglo-Saxon heritage? Where did that come from? Why was it said?

    Here's the real not-so-secret dirty little secret: the conservaposse has resorted to the tactic of creating expendable sock puppets to do their dirty work. This one was created today, but hits the ground running in the forums.

    It gets to be totally offensive and violate TOS/TOU because it's sacrificial. A suicide bomber, if you wish. There's a strong likelihood it'll be quickly booted by Admin, but that's not a problem for the person behind it - he'll just create another one and start all over again. There's no posting history to lose, no profile with pics, no e-mail archive, nothing but a hollow account set-up to harass us.

    Yup.

    The Romney spokesperson claimed that President Obama doesn't understand America's "Anglo-Saxon heritage".
    Clearly the only definition that fits that instance of the use of the phrase is the definition referring to the white race.

    The Romney spokesperson was clearly playing the race card.
    The only question is why?

    It seems the Repubs have no shame about lying their asses off.

    According to the reference, race is explicitly mentioned in only 2 of 13 definitions. If you want to infer race is implicit in all the definitions, you would be suggesting that US heritage is white and British heritage is white. That could be an interpretation but it is not overt.

    During my previous incarnation at RJ, I generally avoided the political area completely. I hope you are not a typical RJ poster here because you really are demonstrating a lot of anger at only a mild challenge of your premise.





    LMFAO
    You've attacked me personally twice just in the last hour simply because you didn't agree with what I posted.
    You even called me a racist!

    The angry and nasty one is you.
    But nice try!

    So fucking what??! If an Obama adviser said "Romney can't fully appreciate African American heritage" you'd be all "RIGHT ON!!". What if an Obama adviser said "Obama is better able to understand the needs of African Americans" would you say that's racist?

    You're so full of shit that there's no more room in your goddamn colon.

    I agree that the "Anglo-Saxon heritage" can be used in a racial sense.

    However, there's been a history between GB and the USA since we first became a country. The Magna Carta is a chief cornerstone of our Constitution. Congress and Parliament share some similarities. The political philosophies that our Founding Fathers upheld came from the Enlightenment Era. John Locke, an Englishman, was probably the most influential Enlightenment philosopher. And for over a century, GB and USA have had a strong alliance and bond over common interests.

    So, in that sense, America does have an Anglo-Saxon heritage.

    But it begs the question why does President Obama allegedly not "fully appreciate" the Anglo-Saxon heritage? Where did that come from? Why was it said?

    There could be a number of reasons, but what comes to mind is the general impression many have that Obama puts less emphasis on the US traditional allies. It was also said by an Romney aide, not Romney himself. To try and get the general context of the remarks I did a search and came up with this:
    http://www.vancouversun.com/life/Romney+would+restore+AngloSaxon+relations+unlike+Obama+says+Romney/6988710/story.html

    Romney attempted to distance himself from the comments, although he didn't go as far as his campaign did earlier in the day when it questioned the veracity of the story.

    "I don't agree with whoever that adviser is," Romney said in an interview with NBC News. "But I can tell you that we have a very special relationship between the United States and Great Britain ... I also believe the president understands that."


    Given that Romney explicitly distanced himself from the specific remarks, it does appear to be much about nothing, but the Obama campaign is grasping, seems to me.


    The article you linked to says that President Obama enjoys a chummy relationship with PM David Cameron. Sounds like conservatives are creating something out of nothing in regards to President Obama and the UK.

    Why would President Obama be unable to understand America's "Anglo-Saxon heritage" while Romney is able to understand it?

    HMMMMM,

    What quality does Romney possess that President Obama doesnt possess that would allow Romney to understand America's "Anglo-Saxon heritage" while President Obama would not?

    What makes Romney more "Anglo-Saxon" than President Obama?

    LOL
    You Repubs know damn well what it is!

    You're shamelessly playing the race card - you've gotten caught doing it - and now you're squealing like pigs because you got caught.

    It was a comment an aide made and Romney said he disagreed with the comments and further said both he and Obama understood the special relationship between the US and UK. A non-issue, but the Obama campaign is worried big time, so they make a big deal about everything. And your little potty mouth also displays your fear. I enjoy it.

    Romney's people are looking at the same polls we are and realizing Romney is losing badly -- he's behind in virtually every swing state. He's looking at a devastating loss in November unless something changes.
    So instead of coming up with real ideas on how to improve the economy and solve our country's problems, he resorts to these kind of shameful tactics.
    He falls a little lower every day.

    .The comments were the latest attack by the Romney campaign on Obama’s multi-cultural heritage. Last week, Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu said Obama didn’t understand the “American system” because he “spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia.” Sununu also said Obama needed to “learn how to be an American.” (Sununu later apologized for that remark.) Later that day Romney called Obama’s policies “extraordinarily foreign.”


    He's ignoring the fact that Romney's father was born in Mexico and Romney spent time in France as part of his Mormon missionary work. which makes Romney just as "foreign" and no more "American" in nature than Obama. I also wonder if he realizes that Hawaii is in fact part of the United States.

    Let me clue you in because you are truly clueless.

    The polls that favor Obama, especially the one cited, is of Registered Voters which oversamples Democrats. The most extreme one in Obama's favor had him up by 6%, but the sample consisted of 11% more Democrats than Republicans. If you look at all the polls, it is a dead heat.

    The past several weeks the Obama campaign and SuperPACs have outspent the competition by several times, yet they did not have the impact intended, with the race in a dead heat.

    By all indictions, the spending rate by the Obama team has significantly cut into their resources. By contrast, the Romney side (candidate, party, SuperPACs) have been significantly taken in more and are holding their fire.

    All indications are the economy is going to continue to get worse, and to most people the blame will fall on Obama.

    The only thing you have going for you is there are many on Government entitlements, not including social security, who will only vote for Obama.

    BUT - with the heavy cash advantage for Romney and allies and the continuing tanking of the economy, you have a lot to worry about.

    mock, mock, mock

    your problem is that "an Obama adviser" did NOT say the offensive comparable you suggest.

    NOPE, it's a ROMNEY PROBLEM. Get used to them. There will be more.

    Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu actually called President Obama UNAmerican.

    That's stunning enough in it's baseness - but what makes it particularly unbelievable is the fact that John Sununu was born in CUBA - and his father was born in Jerusalem and his mother was born in El Salvador.

    Yet somehow he's in a position to call President Obama UNAmerican?

    The desperate Romney campaign is recycling the same failed strategy that the McCain/Palin campaign tried in 2008.

    Trying to play the race card without getting caught doing it.

    The McCain campaign tried to say that Obama wasn't a "real" American - wink wink - you know what that means.

    And now the Romney campaign is trying to call President Obama UNAmerican and foreign - wink wink - you know what that means.

    Disgraceful.

    And there was no threat to "tattle" to Admin. These kamikaze socks get enough complaints from others to get them booted, whether I chime in to Admin or not.

    And that's what makes me expect they'll continue to get knocked down as soon as they get created. But I'm afraid we're gonna see a lot more of this, a new and so far moderately successful tactic by the Right Wingers.

    They don't seem to apply the same standards to themselves. For example, John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which is now part of Panama. Yet the birthers only focused on Obama who was born in a US state (not a territory) and ignored that McCain was basically born in Panama.

    You don't get it--I don't give a fuck about the conservaposse---I've said a number of times that I'm a born and bred liberal scandinavian Democrat from Minnesota---but I appreciate what the conservaposse have to say because it makes me think. I'm not scared of them like you are and I don't have to prove my gayness to anyone as I did not live a lie for most of my life--
    What I can't deal with was your nasty overweight ass attacking me on a health and fitness board accusing me of being a right wing plant when I wasn't. And then you almost brag about your "handicaps"--What the hell are you doing on a health and fitness board when you clearly haven't seen the inside of a gym in 10 years--that's what fucking pissed me off---I work my ass off at the gym, am probably more 'handicapped" than you and all you do is talk about your "handicaps" and get drunk. Do you think that any epileptic coming to RJ is going to think your drunken ass is a positive message--Luckily I see through your facade-- All I can say to you is FUCK YOU!

    ---Stalking you?---I just want people to know the truth about you. So get over it and "tattle" to admin--

Last week, Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu said Obama didn’t understand the “American system” because he “spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia.” Sununu also said Obama needed to “learn how to be an American.” (Sununu later apologized for that remark.) Later that day Romney called Obama’s policies “extraordinarily foreign.”


    He's ignoring the fact that Romney's father was born in Mexico and Romney spent time in France as part of his Mormon missionary work. which makes Romney just as "foreign" and no more "American" in nature than Obama. I also wonder if he realizes that Hawaii is in fact part of the United States.






    Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu actually called President Obama UNAmerican.

    That's stunning enough in it's baseness - but what makes it particularly unbelievable is the fact that John Sununu was born in CUBA - and his father was born in Jerusalem and his mother was born in El Salvador.

    Yet somehow he's in a position to call President Obama UNAmerican?

    The desperate Romney campaign is recycling the same failed strategy that the McCain/Palin campaign tried in 2008.

    Trying to play the race card without getting caught doing it.

    The McCain campaign tried to say that Obama wasn't a "real" American - wink wink - you know what that means.

    And now the Romney campaign is trying to call President UNAmerican and foreign - wink wink - you know what that means.

    Disgraceful.


    They don't seem to apply the same standards to themselves. For example, John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which is now part of Panama. Yet the birthers only focused on Obama who was born in a US state (not a territory) and ignored that McCain was basically born in Panama.

    "John McCain was born on August 29, 1936, at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, to naval officer John S. McCain, Jr. (1911–1981) and Roberta (Wright) McCain (b. 1912).[2] At that time, the Panama Canal was under U.S. control.[3]"

    "McCain, having been born in the (Panama) Canal Zone, if elected would have become the first president who was born outside the current 50 states. This raised a potential legal issue, since the United States Constitution requires the president to be a natural-born citizen of the United States. A bipartisan legal review[213] and a unanimous but non-binding Senate resolution[214] both concluded that he is a natural-born citizen"
