    Although I have chuckled at a few of the Etch-A-Sketch ’toons, they are really getting a bit hackneyed.

    Don’t like his position? Wait a minute. Like his position? Wait two minutes. Romney has become the poster child for flip-flop.

    I heard the company who owns Etch a Sketch saw sales increase after those comments were made. They’ll probably sell more after this toon is seen. Sue somebody…
    I don’t think so.
    If Romney wins, I’m hoping we see Mass. Mitt in office, the compassionate and moderate conservative. We might get the Right of Santorum/Gingrich Romney. Whatever Romney we get, if he is President, I will write my opinions to his office and complain/compliment/advise as is warranted. If he’s the president I think he’ll be, I’ll probaby work against him in 2016, if someone worth voting against him appears. I could see myself voting for one of the Romey’s I’ve seen since 2000, but….the opponents would have to be pretty bad, or Romney will have to done something pretty amazing..
    Respectfully,

    “…..But then, that tactic (racism) has been a favorite of liberals and democrats….”
    .
    That is ridiculous and why do you just make it up?
    What I see is Democrats going out of their way to avoid putting a racist spin on issues. What I see from the conservative talk-radio gas-bags is daily racism. They shout to the high heavens they are not racist, then they proceed to bring up some irrelevant issue that they can give a racist spin. The idea is to keep racism alive, to the benefit of the Republican base and to the detriment of Obama. Its sneaky racism.

    Sen. John Warner(R-Va) and Glenn Oder(R-State rep) are the only politicians to reply to my copious letters in ‘person’, with a note that directly addressed my comments and me. Every other politician has either not replied at all or with a form letter. I have sent three letters and around a dozen emails to the White House, particularly to this one….

    Never saw them posted and did not receive a reply.
    You just think i’m fair minded because I like Dunkel Beir. A few of those, I can be VERY fair minded. :D
    Bis spater.

    Because he’s a partisan troll who doesn’t have any real arguments to make his case.

    The best way to stump the toonists is to make something too true to be funny

    I saw a picture of a guy at a Romney rally in Ohio wearing a t-shirt that said “Let’s put the White back in the White House”. I’m certainly not saying that Romney is a racist — or that he’s running a racist campaign — but a lot of racists support him.

    @lonecat

    Your post reminds me of the opening of a Simpsons ’toon: A FoxNews helo with the motto “Not racist, but #1 with racists”

    A basic summary of all the right-wing posts on this thread so far…

    You would have to show me specific Elijah Cummings examples. What I have seen of Cummings is that he is more of a realist than a racist. Growing up in the south in a period of rampant racism, Cummings will know a thing or two about racism. It is not racism to draw attention to racism. It would be racism if he said that all whites were racist pigs. Quite possibly his finely tuned racist detector suspects there might be some racism involved in the hatred by some of Obama, including on Benghazi.

    Sorry, I’ve got better things to do than to go through your links. So I’ll take your word that some Democrats are also racist. But honest identification of real racism is not in itself racism. It is realism, and serves a purpose to continue the good fight against bonafide racism. In my previous comment, I am referring to conservative talk-radio and others who attempt to exploit racism by continually raising irrelevant so-called racist incidents for the sole purpose of dividing America along racial lines to the detriment of Obama and the Democratic party.

    The way I see it, the Dems have two options for tomorrow night: 1 – Put an Obama Halloween mask on Joe Biden and have him debate Romney; 2 – Hire Lance Armstrong as a debate “consultant”…
