    I'm sure that there was a Libertarian aspect to those protests and I'm sure some of them were Republicans who only understood that their leaders were telling them to go but it seemed like an overrepresentation of racists to me. I don't think they were all racists but I'll bet it was well over 50 percent. The signs told the story: Whether they were questioning Obama's citizenship, his experience or his associations, real and otherwise, it all boiled down to one thing: They don't like him because he's black.

    •  many afraid to say it out loud (3+ / 0-)

      so they wrap their voices around arguments that don't hold water.  they don't need to, they're just fig leaves.  It just galls them on a primeval level that the American body politic has passed them by.  these are 20th century malcontents in a 21st century world.

      Always grateful to wake up alive.
