Lawrence O'Donnell: 'Republican Audiences Don't Know Most People On Food Stamps Are White'

Noel Sheppard's picture

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Saturday said "Republican audiences do not know that most people on food stamps are white."

This occurred during his network's coverage of the South Carolina primary (video follows with transcript and commentary):

LAWRENCE O'DONNELL: There’s a tremendous amount of cynicism in Gingrich’s use of food stamps because of what he actually know that his Republican debate audiences do not know. His Republican audiences do not know that most people on food stamps are white. His Republican audiences don’t know that most people use it temporarily, and, most importantly, his Republican audiences don’t know what Newt does know which is there would be no food stamps in America were it not for Republican Senator Bob Dole who held the key to making the food stamp program happen.

So in the past few days, MSNBC anchors have called Republican voters lemmings, racists, and now idiots.

And they wonder why their ratings are so lousy.

More importantly, if O'Donnell knows that most people on food stamps are white, why do he and his liberal colleagues think calling the current White House resident The Food Stamp President is racist?

Isn't it really the Obama-loving press that are making this a racial issue?

Associate Editor’s note: As you are likely aware, since the financial collapse of 2008, charities and non-profit organizations have seen a sharp reduction in donations. Although the environment has improved, contributions are still nowhere near where they were prior to the recession. Unfortunately, the Media Research Center has not been immune. With this in mind, your support has become more important than ever. With a critical election approaching, the liberal media needs to be monitored 24/7. As we have been predicting for months, the press are willing to do anything to get their beloved politicians elected and/or reelected. As such, we need your help to fight this fight. Any contribution, even $10, is greatly appreciated. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to the Media Research Center to help us battle the liberal media. Thank you.

#1 ⇒ Earth to Lawrence

There are roughly 6X as many whites as blacks in America. We know your game.

You ignorant Socialist! We also know your convolution of the percentages and why you state your case so awkwardly, playing numbers instead of percentages.

#2 Actually,

a recent thread on food stamps said 35% of recipients were white, I think that is his point
on this thread.

#3 ⇒ You're right

So if America is 81% white, you should expect 81% of food stamp recipients to be white, but that is not the case.

America is roughly 13% black.  Instead of of 28% of food stamp recipients being black, we should expect 13%., but that is not the case.

Lawrence is stating his numbers in such a way as to draw attention away from the real higher participation percentages by group.

#4 More to the point crazy Larry

More to the point crazy Larry said most people on food stamps are white, if 35% of the people on food stamps are white that means that 65% of the people on food stamps are not white. It seems Republican debate audiences are smarter than Lawrence O’Donnell, talk about feint praise.

#5 You're Right Cool

You're Right Cool. I blasted FOX New's Aliison Camarotta (Sp?) last weekend for not only reporting hard numbers vs percentages of food stamp recipients, but then allowing two Marxist panelists to support their accusations that Newt is a racist! Furthermore, I checked about two years ago and found that 25% of all persons in the US collecting disability benefits are black. Again, that number should match the percentage of the population ... unless someone is gaming the system!

#6 Actually it is irrelevant in

Actually it is irrelevant in Lawrence's case. Being called a "Food Stamp President" is not racism in any shape or form. But then again Lawrence doesn't comprehend what is said in the English language very well either. Something is said and then you say "OMG, how did he come up with that?!"

 

"DumbAssity of Dope"

#7 kg,

I may be a little dense but I find this interesting:

'Food Stamp President' - is racist even though there has been a record number of people added to the roles of food stamp recipients.

'Old White Guys' - is not racist even though West, Rubio, Rice and Cain are four very sought after endorsements and among the most respected in the party.

. . Socialist = Modern Liberal = Parasitoid

#8 the REAL numbers...

22m of food stamp users are white or about 10% of all white-americans
14m of food stamp users are black, or about 37% of all black-americans
11m of food stamp users are hispanic, or about 37% of all hispanic-americans

* hypnenated-americans used for analysis purposes only

#9 The Numbers According to the

The Numbers According to the USDA

Food Stamp Recipients.

• 41% White
• 36% African-American
• 18% Hispanic
• 3% Asian
• 2% Native American
• 1 % unknown race or ethnicity

that makes it 41% white and 58% non-white with a 1% unknown

Even if you attribute the 1% unknown to White that still does NOT make it an accurate statement that "most people on food stamps are White"

So Larry O' Dimwit is either A) Lying or B) Dumb as a Box of Rocks.

Next!!!

#10 won't let me edit...access denied

the "real numbers"...

22m of food stamp users are white, or about 10% of all white-americans
14m of food stamp users are black, or about 37% of all black-americans
11m of food stamp users are hispanic, or about 27% of all hispanic-americans

* hypnenated-americans used for analysis purposes only

#11 Yep any way you want to slice

Yep any way you want to slice it, percentages of total population, percentages of particular race, hell even whole numbers, Larry O'Dimwit is still either a lying POS or as dumb as he looks.

#12 Obama is still "The Food

Obama is still "The Food Stamp President", no matter how the liberals try to spin it and distract with their racism.

#13 ⇒ Put another way

Let's assume 100% of the Omar Onyango Obamas in America were on Welfare. The number of white people on Welfare would still be higher than the number of Omar Onyango Obamas on Welfare.

Let's move on to the people named Zeituni Obama . . .

#14 Thanks to the mainstream media and the bomb throwers like .....

Crazy Larry. The left with their mean spirited vitriol has handed Newt the South Carolina primary. Keep up the slanted attacks from the so called legit journalists and they will put a Republican in the White House by a landslide. Thank you John King and Juan Williams.

#15 Larry Larry Larry,

We come from this position -

P-E-O-P-L-E are on food stamps, too many P-E-O-P-L-E are on food stamps.

See Larry, we do not view everything through a skin color lens the way you do......you might think about trying to do that, you know, setting skin color aside because it doesn't matter.

That an individual right exists requires that some policy positions be removed from the table of debate.

#16 Hey Larry

Just how dumb do you think we are??? There are many Conservatives that are way smarter than you. It's not the color of people's skin that is important, but that they are on food stamps. We need to get them jobs. Something that President Obama just seem unwilling to do. It seems that the Liberals see the color of the skin first and then that they are Americans. A real telling thing is the title "African-American". Notice it is the color of their skin first.

#17 Up next

We're racist because we're not doing enough for nutrition in the "black community" The solution then will be "how do we get more blacks on food stamps"

#18 What little Larry doesn't understand

What little Larry doesn't understand from an earlier post this week.
She, O'BRIEN,also defended Obama from Gingrich’s charge of him being the “food stamp president,” noting “if you actually look at those numbers, it was George Bush.” USDA data would disagree with that assumption. And then she presented the factual numbers that support Gingrich’s charge of him being the “food stamp president,”!

The highest average number of people on food stamps for any year during the Bush administration was 28.2 million, in the fiscal year 2008. The number increased by almost 60 percent over the next three years to 44.7 million for the fiscal year 2011.

So in 2009 thru 2011 food stamps increased by almost 60%, meaning more people have gone on food stamps every year Obama has been in office!
How stupid are these people?

#19 HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Of course they know that, you liberal idiot...

HA HA HA HA HA HA

#20 Besides . . .

. . . how would a admitted-socialist know what Republicans know and don't know? 

O'Donnell starts with the assumption that southern Republicans are racists, and that food stamps is code for welfare, and welfare is code for black.

Naturally, O'Donnell looks for complex logic through racial theory to come up with his wrong answer, when the real answer is quite plain and simple:  Under President Obama, there are more Americans receiving food stamps than ever before.

#21 Wow. White? Black? Why'd he inject race into it?

Oh, it's MS-NBC we're talking about. Never mind.

And why, again, does he assume that the issue of race would have even crossed the minds of people in the audience? Perhaps because it WAS THE FIRST THING TO POP INTO *HIS* MIND.

#22 Yes if he thinks most are white...

then how does that parlay to race, when a white person said it? He is wrong on facts and short in logic!

-- Maximusbraveheart -- Is TRUTH knowable? Moral Relativism is the abandonment of Truth. Truth is knowable. Truth conforms to Reality. Reality is observable by evidence & witness in this day & from history. Relativism is Sesame Street play land.

#23 Keep spinning, comrade O'Dummy

After all, the Dear Ruler needs all the BS propaganda help he can get.

And you are just the mindless suck-up to provide it.

Sure hope those Obama knee-pads of yours have extra-thick padding, lest you wear them out and wind up with carpet burns.

Vote for the American in November

#24 Hey, Larry O....

We don't CARE what color skin food stamp recipients have, you dumbass. You lefty racists are the only ones who care about race. Look in the mirror, chump.

#25 ⇒ O'Donnell's angle

I think this is damage control, O'Donnell running interference for Obama.

It is important that Obama not be seen as having exacerbated the poverty of blacks.  O'Donnell's bastardization of the facts is a deliberate misdirection.

#26 MSNBC

running interference for Obama, say it ain't so!!!!! I've been calling that channel of lemming propagandists "Obamavision" for awhile now. If(hopefully) Obamalinsky gets voted out of office in November, I wonder what all these commie talking heads at Obamavision will do for work. They have no credibilty now. I loved the crew during the Primary. Rick Maddow, Crazy Larry, Race Pimp Sharpton, and Ed the Red. A real think tank if there ever was one....

#27 Lawrence u don't have any

Lawrence u don't have any blacks working 4 u on your show and u live in an all white neighborhood

#28 ⇒ Lawrence's numbers

What Lawrence is really trying to say is that since 65% of NFL Players are black, it follows that America is 65% black.

#29 Notre Dame basketball

I watched highlights of Notre Dame beat Syracuse in basketball today. Man, I got sick. Notre Dame had four white players on the court at one time. That's got to be a violation of the Rev. Hymietown Jackson rule on permissible levels of non-diversity.

I mean, Notre Dame is a *French* name and it tries to get around the diversity issue by using a goddamn midget Irish mythological leprechaun, for crying out loud. And their basketball team is 80% white, like, hello, no disparate impact in that, right?

#30 CO2, it gets funnier than

CO2, it gets funnier than that...during the 90's Notre Dame had a black leprechaun.. as mascot..you can guess what he was called..

#31 Oh yes, I remember that

Now just imagine a black mascot for the Minnesota Vikings!

Oh, btw, on the subject of mascots. A high school in Utah voted for a team mascot. They chose a cougar. Mountain lion, Brigham Young Cougars, all that stuff. Some parents complained and the principal (a person of gender) overruled the choice because .... it demeaned women. Cougar. Older woman, younger man. Think "Desperate Housewives" meet Prunella the lady Thought Policeman.

#32 That's JFB, CO!

I wonder if anyone will point out to Principal Prunella that referring to the team members as "players" could imply that they are, shall we say, active on the social scene and in the clubs and bars.

There could be other problems like saying a baseball team member (see how PC I can be?) is a "switch hitter."

Oh, wait a minute. That would probably be OK in the Age of LuGButT.

Could be interesting.

Comrade Bubba

#33 Switch hitter?

Switch hitter with a high extra-base average = gay basher?

#34 What is it MSNBC is really trying to do here....?

They are trying to neutralize or stigmatize the phrase "food stamp President" because it is a very effective catch phrase. They don't want Newt using it at all. If the phrase was really so mean spirited then they would play it over and over.
It hurts Obama and they want Newt to stop pronto.

They did this the last election too.
Just look back at all the things and topics that Axelrod and his media elves made off limits.
Obama's college transcripts, his friendship with Bill Ayers, 20 years of Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, his middle name, his trip to Pakistan and pretty much his whole past.

Newt scares them because they can't bully him into going easy on Obama. Don't forget that they all work in an environment where criticizing Obama can get them fired.

Follow me on Twitter

#35 Now these losers have

Now these losers have accepted their own false narrative on the 'Food Stamp President' remark and proceed to floor the pedal on their own constructed meme. Rather than address the real issue they are simply going to expound on the racial aspects of it that they have created...The real question here, and they know it hence the diversion, is "Who put all these people on Food Stamps? And how do we fix it?". Black or white is an issue solely created by them, Obama's defenders. The media now prefer to play Fonzie speeding toward the ramp over the racism 'shark' to avoid one obvious solution, Barack Obama must be removed.

#36 This guy is a waste of time

The reason most people don’t know that Lawrence O’Donnell is stupid is because very few people watch the network he’s on. And with a statement like his you have to assume might be related to Norah O’Donnell.

#37 Norah O'Donnell?

And here I thought he was related to Rosie O'Donnell.

#38 So Larry........

........is going to have to gather all his co-workers and MSNBC contributors in a room and let them all know this fact, because they're using it to say Newt is being racist with his foodstamp comment as they are saying he's talking about black people. But it's his fellow MSNBC'ers who are pointing at black people in order to be able to make their claim.

Oh what a tangled web they weave.

#39 lying with stat

My stat teacher, MANY years ago said..if they give you numbers, ask for %; if they give you % ask for the numbers.

Liberals/socialists always put forward the statistic that, percentage-wise, more whites than blacks receive food stamps. But, they try to avoid this: Although the highest percentage of people on food stamps are white, they proportionally are the lowest group when you look at what percentage of the population is white. Yes, 34% of all food stamp recipients are white, yet 72.5% of America is white. While 28% of all blacks in the U.S. food stamps, blacks are 13% of the population. For the argument that whites are the main recipients of food stamps to be valid, blacks would have to comprise approximately 60%, not 13%, of the American population. 60% is close to a five-fold increase (actually 4.6- fold ) from 13%.

Conversely, if X million of the food stamps 46 million recipients are white and Y million are black, other comments above show the misinformation in saying more whites than blacks get food stamps. However, one could argue that, while food stamps benefit all races, statistically they seem to have become a subsidy to many African-Americans and a vote-getting mechanism...whoops, racist charges will soon be forthcoming.

In the Chronicles of Narnia, Book Seven, we find Aslan has a wondrous description of many Liberals/Socialists: "They will not let us help them. ...Their prison is only in their own minds. Yet they are in that prison and so afraid of being taken in ....that they cannot be taken out."

Ronald John Lofaro, PhD

#40 How is the first thoughts libs. . .

. . . is "This is racist. . ." Who thinks about race all of the time, Larry??

Repeal the Seventeenth Amendment.

#41 The support Obama's every move.......

.........and since just about every move is a failure, they MUST make sure they somehow deem OTHERS the idiots.

#42 Ok Larry the Moron let's play with your abuse of statistics.

If most people on food stamps are white, then how, under any circumstance could ANYONE by saying The Bummer is the King of Foods Stamps be an assault on black people on food stamps?

hbnolikeee

#43 You are making the assumption.......

.......that the Left is rational and logical and that it won't reach down to even greater incoherency over the next 10 months.

#44 Ya gotta understand HB

Liberals, during the course of trying to prove Newt wrong, only recently have uncovered the mess they've made of the minority population in this country.

They have not discerned the consequences of their evil, but that is beyond their intellectual capacity, so they probably never will.

"I don't like repeat offenders, I like dead offenders". - Ted Nugent

#45 Only recently uncovered this...?

You give these thieves too much credit.

Those that run their pack, know full well what they're doing, how they're doing it and why?

You think they don't like paying welfare checks and unemployment checks for multiple years, especially as elections approach? Why do you think Oh-Bummer needs a billion dollars for his campaign, to help people or buy something?

hbnolikeee

#46 You're right HB

Poorly worded on my part. Meant that these truths, the real destruction of the family dynamic, especially in the black population, is starting to get out to those that are most affected.

The "blame Whitey" meme put out by the media and the DNC is losing its value. The truth is that those encouraging the "blame Whitey" line of argument are the modern day slave masters. If the "slaves" ever figure that out, it could get ugly.

"I don't like repeat offenders, I like dead offenders". - Ted Nugent

#47 You beat me to it

Well, if the majority of food stamp recipients are white, how can it be racist to call O'Bama a "food stamp president"?

Oh, duh, 'scuse me. Republicans = racists. End of story. (See Martin Bashir's photo of the Republican candidates superimposed on a Confederate flag as proof that they are racists.)

#48 "'Republican Audiences Don't

"'Republican Audiences Don't Know Most People On Food Stamps Are White"

Well that pretty much takes race out of the equation right?.. OR DOES IT? Perhaps the first black president is putting down the white man!? Retribution is not far off folks! I for one think it's time the crackers pay for what they have done to the blacks. And if that means 2 terms for the first black(sort of) President so be it!!

BTW Michelle IS the first black first lady. No denying that. But give me a break, if you choose a side with regard to Barack, you are on your own.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend, unless my friend is more evil than my enemy."

#49 He's right. We republicans

He's right. We republicans thought everyone on food stamps were black because we are all racist, confederate, KKK types. Lawrence O'Donnell shows his own ignorance with such an idiotic statement.

#50 Actually.....Larry.....

Your wrong. the first thing this Republican thought was, "those idiots are calling us racists. Don't they know that because of all the unemployment in the white race, whites are the majority on food stamps!" Duh Larry from that democratic network!

#51 This is why Crazy Larry is a f***ing moron

Republicans and Marxists react differently to the phrase "Food Stamps". Republicans see food stamps as horrible and that this is America and NO ONE should be on Food Stamps. The Marxist see food stamps as a race issue.

"Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets". - Robert DeNiro, Taxi Driver (1976).

#52 Inspiration

During a particularly bleak period during WWII, our Navy sunk a Japanese destroyer and a radio announcer named Gabriel Heatter opened his show that night with "Good evening everyone, there is good news tonight." It was very uplifting and became a common inspiring theme! After the audience reaction to the asinine question from John King in the recent debate and all of your comments here, I can say I'm proud of you and that there is again good news tonight!

The American people are waking up to the bias media flakes like Larry O'Donnell and will work to support whoever the Republican candidate may be. Be of good cheer; the day of reckoning is approaching! Cheers!

#53 Everytime this is brought

Everytime this is brought up......respond by saying that our system is terribly biased against Whites since more Whites are unemployed than Blacks.

#54 Yeah!

Now we are the minority, too!!

Comrade Bubba

#55 Wait a minute...

How would Larry O'Donnell know what an audience is??

"If you want to make a Conservative angry, tell him a lie. If you want to make a Liberal angry, tell him the truth." - Rush Limbaugh

#56 Lemmings reading idiotic racist talking points.

Gee what a surprise Lawrence O’Donnell talking down about republicans. I know that our food stamp President Barack Hussein Obama has put more American’s onto food stamps than any President in history. Personally, every person that I’ve seen using government assistance cards at the grocery store have been white, so Lawrence O’Donnell, I do know that more white people than any other group of American’s are on food stamps, by the way I also have seen the numbers, they are depressing. Barack Hussein Obama has created more poverty than any President in history while at the same time spending more money than every president combined has spent, from George Washington to Bill Clinton. That is an incredible accomplishment, and Barack Hussein Obama, along with every other democrat that can get in front of a camera on TV are still blaming Georg W. Bush for every single problem in the U.S.A., it’s not even shocking any more. In fact when a democrat/progressive/liberal ends a paragraph on TV without using the tag line “This is all due to 8 years of George W Bushes polices.” I have to check to be sure it’s not a republican speaking. Lawrence O’Donnell, Barack Hussein Obama is the food stamp president and you are the racist lemming reading idiotic talking points from the food stamp president’s reelection committee.

#57 Don't you just love how

Don't you just love how libtards think? First claim that a statement about economic policy is racist, then claim the average republican is too stupid to realize that the supposedly racially-motivated statement doesn't work as a racial insult because most food-stamp recipients are white.

Crack an egg>Scramble it>The liberal brain.

(You don't need to bring up the obvious statistical challenge regarding the proportionate use of foodstamps among demographic groups - that's too much for dimly lit morons like Larry Boy to comprehend)

#58 Brilliant Larry O'D

Food stamp recipients have increased under Obama - that is the real story...never mind white, black, yellow or polka dotted!!!!

The fact is people are hurting, more families are in need of assistance under this moron he idolizes. MESNBC seem to have a very narrow list of arguments..racist, sexist, rich... to deflect blame.

#59 Tell that to your pals. If

Tell that to your pals. If you talk about food stamp receiptents you are a racist becasue they think only blacks are on SNAP.

A well regulated militia being necessary to a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

#60 The color of the people

on food stamps is only relevant to the liberals. Their goal is to keep as many people as possible on the welfare rolls.

If you're not getting flak, you're not over the target.

#61 Bingo misterbee241!!!!!

As I wrote here a few days ago, this is exactly what the Commies did in NYC in the '70's, overwhelm the welfare rolls until they bankrupted the city. All part of the Big Picture-Communist Style...Obamalinsky did nothing in three years to stabilize housing prices. Makes it easier to take away personal property Marxist style when your property is becoming worthless. Steering the citizens away from using cash so they can take away more of it. Making money worthless by printing more and more of it. When is the last time you heard someone say "I'm going to make a deposit in my Savings Account"?

Reagan was the last U.S. President who wasn't a Progressive. Remember Bush 41 with "New World Order"? That put a chill up my back at the time. Clinton was as Communist as this schmuck now. Bush 43 doubled the size of government, doubled federal spending, doubled the debt from 5 to 10 Trillion, and tripled spending on education with schools being indoctrination centers instead of truly educating. And of course we now have a full blown Marxist Mystery Man in the White House. That's 23 years of Progressive Presidents in a row, any wonder in what's going on now? This Progressive infection is on both sides of the aisle, make no mistake. Obama is only a cog in the machine, albeit an effective one. Effective as the opposition party just goes along with it. We need a government that has representatives that love the country rather than just their own self interest. I pray for my country, often!!!!!

#62 we don't care

we don't care what color they are. the only color we care about
is the green they're taking from us!

graz

#63 Hmmmm Larry?

What other things are Republican audiences ignorant of? We're all hoping a sh_t-for-brains, liberal shill like you will enlighten us. Hold forth, Larry and blind us all in the bright light of your omniscience.

#64 MY problem with the food stamp crowd.

Race aside one of my biggest complaints with regards to the Food Stamp program is when, in order to stay within a set budget, I often have to by the less costly "store brands".

Being responsible, and gainfully employed, I must forgo the lip smacking delight of a "Hostess Twinkie" and instead have settle for the Wal-Mart "Dunkie" or whatever the heck its called.

Yet as I stand in line with my "Dunkies" and "Frosted Flukes" the lady in front of me, after corralling her 5 little hellspawn, whips out her Food Stamp card and proceeds to buy every "Name Brand" form of junk food that the store offers.

Yep, I bust my butt and have to settle for bottom shelf snack foods and the food stamp crowd uses my tax dollars to stuff themselves with junk food......and then they bitch about the nutritional contents of their kids "free" school lunch.

#65 At least you're into recycling

And that's what's important! Recycle the old Reagan theme.."welfare queen". It worked then, why not now?

#66 It keeps working because it's true

Or perhaps you can explain to me the wisdom of a system that pays women to kick they baby daddys to the curb.

"I don't like repeat offenders, I like dead offenders". - Ted Nugent

#67 don't have to, recycling works

Anything you don't need..just kick it to the curb..someone will pick it up. (that was a metaphor)

#68 Not in liberal Minneapolis!

"Kicking it to the curb" is illegal in Minneapolis. For that's called littering. And if anyone other that the "authorized" collectors even opens a "official" Minneapolis recycle bin, let alone takes anything from it, they will be cited with a misdemeanor and hit with a fine! Oh, and by the way, if a resident of Minneapolis doesn't have an official Minneapolis recycle bin, they're hit with an increased collection charge! Oh, and don't you DARE try to dispose of your residential trash in anything other than a official city owned, numbered and registered (They're actually numbered and registered to each individual residence!), trash bin! Do do otherwise is illegal!

Only the City itself may profit from recycling. Not even the poor can take any of that "city owned" trash (once its in the bin, it's the property of the City, thus the Courts have ruled!), trash which can only be disposed in lawful manner in a city owned trash or recycle bin, and only in the bin that is registered to your particular residence! Here in Liberal Utopia, even your TRASH is regulated to the point of absurdity, and no one else other than the government can profit from it!

The government owns everything, including your trash! Now that's a metaphor for Liberalism in America!

I know everyone kids you about "Socialist Canada," but I don't think even you guys as far as mandating the use of numbered, registered, city owned, and supplied, trash cans!

#69 I'm glad you admit it.

Well, since Reagan's "welfare queen" policy got the majority of "welfare queens" off of welfare and into employment, it looks like it really did work! Thanks for admitting it.

#70 "Welfare queens"?

Oh great. More gay-bashing Republican Teabaggers

#71 No.....what I am "into" is

No.....what I am "into" is expressing my own disdain for those that refuse to shop in a frugal manner when they are spending other peoples money.

That this disdain bears some resemblance to opinions expressed by Ronald Reagan is hardly an insult to me as I greatly admired Ronald Reagan.

However that resemblance would be simple happenstance as I did not closely follow politics during his first term as I was busy attending High School and only paid scant attention to politics during his second term as I was busy serving my country in the Army.

And, unlike many that I have seen from the liberal side of politics, I tend to arrive at my own conclusions and express my own opinions, rather than parrot the "party line".

#72 Chill dude

I'm sure you are a true patriot. I,on the other hand, am simply trying to win a bet over the next 10 weeks without resorting to profanity.

#73 'Welfare queens' is still

'Welfare queens' is still good, there's no expiration date on that as long as liberal 'victim politics' is circulated...we have some new ones since Reagan..'crack whore', 'anchor baby'..'Democrat incumbent'.. "Aunt Zeituni'..it's basically all the same stealing.

#74 Ok, mandrake, since you keep mentioning it---

in your posts, I'll ask.

What is the significance of an occurrence taking place in ten weeks?

You plan on shuffling off this mortal coil, taking the last train to Clarksville, tripping the light fantastic, converting to Buddhism, hauling coals to Newcastle, gettin' down and dirty, puttin' on the Ritz, or leaving NB's - ?

If the latter, would that be a threat, or a promise?

#75 Hehehehehehe

O'Donnell just called himself and EVERYONE that ever called anyone racist for referring to Obama as the foodstamp President idiots.

He is stating that conservatives do not know, yet then they are still using the racist rhetoric. Thanks socialist for proving how dumb you all are.

#76 The Code, deciphered.

"Republican audiences do not know that most people on food stamps are white."

So that's why anytime a Republican mentions "food stamps" it's automatically labeled as a code word for racism, right? Anyone who uses the code word "food stamps" is insinuating that Obama's a racist who hates the Whites! Thanks for deciphering that for us, Lawrence!

By the way, since when is 35 percent "most people?" Doesn't applying the term "most people" necessity them having a number greater than 50 percent? Or are we using liberal math again?

#77 It's touching, Lawrence

"his Republican audiences don’t know what Newt does know..."

It's touching, Lawrence, that you are willing to take time out of your busily schedule to, shall we say, educate us all about the ignorance of that republican audience and how, you, who wasn't in the audience, knows, instinctively, I guess, about what Newt "knows" and can decipher, for us, the vast complexity of Newt's statement. I'm sure everyone will agree that we all appreciate your insight into Newt's brain, you insufferable, arrogant, prick!

#78 Why bring in race anyway to the Food Stamp statement

Why would Mr. O'Donnell mention race at all in connection with food stamps? My concern (and I bet the most common concern of Republicans if not most Americans) is that there are too many Americans depending on food stamps, and that those Americans should have jobs and paychecks that will enable them to get off that dependence on food stamps.

If Mr. O'Donnell is making an honest statement from his heart, then he seems to equate food stamps with race. He seems to think most of the rest of us do, too. That in my experience is a very Liberal viewpoint: categorize people by race first, as actual people second.
