Obama: "Republicans have to ride in the back..."

"we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

Nary a word of protest from the professional racist police, but imagine if a Republican said that about Obama or the democrat party....

Well it will be okay if the republicans ride in the back(of the bus) as long as they don't have a 'tribal attitude". And there will be a check before boarding for guns and bibles..........

Obama, intelligent fellow

Obama, intelligent fellow that he is, is rapidly becoming the King-of-the-shoot-yourself-in-the-foot one liners. It is a treat to get up each morning now and read the newest "treasure" he has bestowed upon his opposition.

Why the man is so smart that he can lose all by himself.

Wow!

Obama has shown us one way to cut spending. We can close the White House as he doesn't seem to use it much.

You guys sure can twist

You guys sure can twist things into shapes that they aren't. There is absolutely no reference to a "bus." Most people know that you can't "ride shotgun" on a bus. The reference is clearly to a passenger car, with the passenger providing more guidance than those in the back seat. Pretty hard to find any racism here unless you want simply make it up.

Unless the exact same statement were made by a Republican...or maybe Juan Williams.

Just think of the counselors

Just think of the counselors that are and will be making huge sums of money treating O voters fro th evarious syndromes of disenchantment with the "One"!

I always believed Bill Clinton was a great example of a generation that was misguided , and I disliked alot, they look good in the context of their time and now!

How soon before Hillary bails and starts running??? Not soon enough for some !

Average Joe - sorry, but in

Average Joe - sorry, but in this case, I think Obama knew exactly what he was saying by making a reference to certain people "riding in the back." It's patently obvious.

I also believe that if something like this had been said by a white Republican president, the national cries for blood would be deafening.

Just curious. While they're in the back, do they get a separate but equal water fountain?

"I also believe that if something like this had been said by a white Republican president, the national cries for blood would be deafening."

. . . and everyone on AMG would be crying foul about the Dems playing the race card and how some people just look for excuses to prove their victimhood.

Yawn.

This isn't a racial comment

This isn't a racial comment it is a comment from the Prez to let us know that children ride in the back, and we all know who is riding shotgun.

He meant to say "of the bus", but the TOTUS wasn't aligned right, and the phrase got snipped.

Well jon stewart said it all.......I just feel better knowing that the presidential "dude" will be driving that car.......let's see D for drive and oh yeah R for reverse......
If Jon has wanted to test the waters of how much disrespect the one would accept for the office of president he could have pulled out a violin and called him Rochester.............it is a comedy show after all.
