For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

The remarks about Romney and the baby were vile and uncalled for. I have a black foster grandkid, who has been in the family since he was eleven. He is now 15 1/2.  My son was his coach, and he kept asking him if he could move in with him. My son and his wife felt awkward about the situation, until the kid's mother asked them to take her son. Unbelievable! He now has a chance in life, that he wouldn't otherwise have. The same goes for the Romney baby.

Blacks demand more help. Liberals demand we do more. And when we do, they slap us upside the head for trying to give children a good life. I have names for people like Harris-Perry, and the entire liberal crew, who are good at talking up good deeds, but who lack in actually doing them.

My niece (adopted at birth) has darker skin than the rest of us. So freakin' what!  Why do we have to insert all the adjectives - Romney's black adopted grandson? Why not just say grandson?

 :amen: I have 12 step-grandchildren, along with seven biological, and one foster grandchild. It's a lot easier for me to say I have 20 grandkids. People who separate them are doing harm to the children, who want to belong. Liberals spend too much time seeing color.

If they saw "color" they would see everything in different colors.  As it is they see one color only - black with an occasional brown tinge.

 I'd like to ask" Just what was Mr. Romney supposed to do with the child? Beyond love him & give him a good home?" Was he supposed to put the child into cosmetic surgery? Buy tanning beds for the others?Just shows that his family understands diversity better than the hosts on MSNBC.

Yep!  I bet millions of children would like to be in this little boy's place.

MSNBC treats that young boy as a token while the Romney's treat him as family.

They treat all minorities as tokens.

Maybe MSNBC thought they should take him to Michael Jackson's dermatologist. :shrug:
