    What, no news conference about how he will miss Brightbart?
    The libs are showing their true colors at the Brightbart story here in CNN. I read over 100 hateful posts telling everyone what a big liar he is and what a bad person he was, bla, bla, bla. What I noticed missing in those posts was ONE statement about even one actual lie.
    You libs need to read his book to understand what you are dealing with. He trained many people in his ways so there are many Brightbarts out there for you to deal with. All accounts said he was a good family man who was loved by family and friends. People who knew him said he didn't have a hateful bone in his body. He said it like it was and you libs obviously hated him for it. He called out your BS and he was good at it.

    Imagine – just for an unimaginable moment – Rick Santorum launching a campaign initiative entitled “White People for Rick Santorum.” What would be the response from Barack Obama, Democrats across the country, the Obama Media Group (OMG), and your liberal friends? Unimaginably imaginable, isn’t it?

    “RACISM!” That’s what. You know it. I know it. They know it. Obama’s sock puppets in the “mainstream” media would suffer a collective apoplectic seizure the likes of which has not been seen since liberal media sycophants turned their wrath on the audacious Monica Lewinsky for having the unmitigated gall to trap Bill Clinton into seducing her in the Oval Office. Yes, America, the cup of leftist hypocrisy would runneth over – big time.

    Yet – O launches “African Americans for Obama” – replete with its own logo, (O loves logos), and marching orders for blacks – and there is nary a whimper from the OMG.

    The clearly racist program urges blacks to volunteer their time by making calls, organizing events and going door-to-door in black neighborhoods encouraging blacks to vote for O.

    bama is a lying thief, who will tell Americans whatever he thinks they want to hear, in order to get elected. And, once elected, this traitor betrays every promise he makes. How many times will gullible Americans fall for this charlatan's lies ??? If obama wins a second term, without the concern of winning another election, we will all be at the mercy of his destructive policies for FOUR more years ... enough time to TOTALLY destroy this once great country, beyond repair. Save America ... dump Obama, ASAP !

      Howard, if by a very slim chance he does get elected for a 2nd term he may try to pass a Howard Law where people who post stuff like you end up at GITMO playing soccer on the new $750,000 soccer field.

        can't stand the obama is a fake and soon it will be clear to even fools like you. He faked his birth cert, selective service card (never registered for military service) and sealed his medical and adidemic might ask yhourself lieu of bashing people who are displeased with your hero-fake-in-chief.
