I've been loath to admit that the frantic efforts to paint our first black president as the Other, a foreigner, socialist, fascist, Marxist, racist, Commie, Nazi; a cad who would snuff old people; a snake who would indoctrinate kids - had to do with race.

People should be very sure of their information before using the term racism.

These Idiots will pay big time for the hate that runs thru their veins people are so hateful because we have a President that is going to work for this Country and being black only proves that the KKK has never stopped working with the skin heads and Rush Limbaugh "Oh what a relief it is" I'm not worried are you?
If we give any publicity to these small minded freaks they go with it..Move forward and ignore there gestures of Hide in seek under mamas sheets

Thanks Tom for spreading this article to a wider audience/group of readers.

The great thing about this article is that it publicises many people's thoughts.

We should not let Congress's peculiar behaviour distract us from calm debate about possible needed changes to Obama's Healthcare Bill.

Thanks for your comments everyone! I don't always agree with Maureen Dowd, but I think she nailed it this time! Cal posted another interesting story on this topic, Racism Behind Anger Toward Obama: Carter that I think is worth reading.

Arrrgh. And people are supposed to be the ones with the big brains and the advanced reasoning skills. Sometimes I actually go back and check the cognitive research to remind me of that. Good grief.

What is troubling is people like Maureen Dowd who would 'use the race card' to stimulate her own 'self interest with the Nyt( btw is having serious financial problems - so a little 'sensational' might help sell news. .If the prez screw in anything and people criticise him - they would be most likely be labelled as a racist.Please check out the down spiral of the Prez approval rating.Is that racism as well?
