When that Republican creep from South Carolina shouted at the president last night and called him a liar it was an unprecedented sign of disrespect. There is rage at Obama from many angry white people who will never accept him as commander-in-chief. It is pure and simple racism, which was also displayed at the town hall meetings of this summer. Republicans are in the process of self-destruction and one of the interesting political developments of the next few generations will be the emergence of a new "conservative" party much like Barry Goldwater envisioned. Right now I am just very disappointed to live in a country where there is so much latent race hatred.
