Anti-establishment election = Americans are angry [View all]

But before all Americans were angry, Rs were angry. Specifically, tea partiers were angry...

And with tea pariters, being angry was code for "I'm pissed that a black guy is president."

Which is why Hillary was smart to reset this election to be about experience and competence by picking Tim Kaine as her running mate.

Don't let yourself get manipulated by the RW bullshit that you are angry. Think about everything Obama has accomplished, and ask yourself if he's made you angry. Are you angry that gays have more rights now? Are you angry that unemployment is low and that gas prices are cheap? Are you pissed that the stock market has soared...or that we're not in any major ground wars...or that bin Laden is dead? Does it make you livid that the auto industry was saved?

If not, don't let them tell you you're angry, because what you're really saying is that you're pissed off a black guy is president.

Yes, sorry to say, but the racism is just that overt once you look at the code words the haters use to express their bigotries.

Remove the hatred of Obama from the election cycle and what do the Rs have to run on? Nothing.

Don't get played.
