    I couldn't tell if FOX is overblown but Obama is a racist and so is Holder. After the professor incident I knew his term would be littered with the racial division card. I think he thinks it makes his failed polices much easier to swallow.

    People died, and that whole 'crime' (Fast and Furious) was against the law... a law that is supposed to be defended and upheld by the ones breaking it. Yet, you say that was "overblown"?

    Unfreaking real... leftists have no shame.

    I don't believe Obama is racist per say, I mean turning your back on one whole side of your family because they're white is stupid.

    I think he used his half black side to rally the untapped voters that never had someone that looked like them. He continued to use this the whole time in office to get what he wanted because if anyone didn't like it he and his posse screamed racism stopping the opposition in their tracks.

    So basically what you've got is a federal agency called Community Relations Service that's been around for 48 years to help cities avoid trouble when there's the kind of tension that Sanford was facing. So city officials called the regional guy who came down, worked with the city, with the community. Protests happened, but they were peaceful and Sanford officials said he did a great job.
    But now you've got some on the right claiming that the CRS guy actually went down to organize the rallies, to get people to protest against Zimmerman.
    Pretty shameless really.

    Thread after thread after thread. Don't you guys on the right ever get embarrassed about swallowing the hook on these ginned up faux outrages? You know, if it sounds unbelievably outrageous, there's a pretty good chance that it is not believable and due diligence on corroborating evidence that doesn't issue from disreputable sites like this one is advised. As it is there are some posters on here whose credibility is zero. You're making UF look bad and as a consequence costing everyone with a UF diploma real money.

    Trayvon was prezBO's long lost son-he is just protecting his own and perpetuating the race issue

    If there are "some on the left claiming that the CRS guy actually went down to organize the rallies, to get people to protest against Zimmerman" and some on the right claiming the same thing, maybe CRS is bringing the left and the right together . . . in their disdain for what CRS did.

    If Trayvon were white, would this case have made national news? If he were Hispanic? Asian? Indian? American Indian? Eskimo?

    Cases like Trayvon give black leaders like Sharpton the opportunity to solidify "their relevance" and raise money from dumb ass libbies with zero sense and black churches who can't afford their electric bills.

    so, since the initial claim that started the thread failed miserably, you're going with 'quick, change the subject!'

    Dave, did you read what the CRS actually does and did in this case?

    Maybe you can specifically counter the points raised by river in his demolition of the OP article and assertion. That would give some weight to your position, which so far is lacking.

    Apparently, you didn't bother reading my link, which was from Fortune, not exactly a left-wing publication. The decision to allow the gun walking was made by an Assistant US Attorney in Phoenix who happened to be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and didn't believe in taking action against straw purchasers until after they made to their sales to the Mexican drug cartels.

    From the original linked article

    Who invented this scheme? I'm sure it was on the Federal level. No state in their right mind would attempt something so damned illegal and butta$$ stupid.
