Wrong. fred uses Kenyan lizard to remind us that the lizard was born in Mombassa. The lizard's grandma says so.
The original full name of the insult was the "lazy sunbathing Kenyan lizard" to indicate ObaMugabe's narcissistic personality disorder.
Fred uses lizard and Kenyan interchangeably so that fred doesn't have to describe the lizard using human terms.
Got it Retard Fred: black = not human

Thanks for clearing that up.

Thankfully you are among the dying breed of crusty, miserable old white male losers. You represent this pathetic group, you call the President a lizard? I call you you a fossilized dinosaur.
Time to die off, you only give new meaning to the word meaningless.
for sonicfilter's benefit, this post is clearly racist (and sexist), attacking a person because he is white and male...

No, you were calling Donaldson a liar 'cause he recognized that some people don't like Obama 'cause he's black (Obama not Donaldson, don't want you any more confused than you already are).
When Sam Donaldson calls "many on the political right" flat out racists, we have a problem.

Would Sam Donaldson say that about "many on the political left" if a black republican had been elected and his policies were criticized by the opposition?

Would you "not like" a republican president just because he is black, Tenzing?

Would you like being called a racist for opposing his policies?

Would you, Tenzing?

You must be kidding me to even attempt to defend that comment.

fred has repeatedly an often said that fred doesn't consider liberals - like you - human beings. Liberals forfeited any consideration as human beings when Roe vs Wade made unrestricted murder legal. duh

This is precisely why Obama was carefully selected by the powers that be. No doubt about it.

If you don't like his radical leftwing positions, you must be a racist.

It's as plain as the nose on Tenzing's face.

Not only were Republicans shut out of the health care reform bill, but Americans were ignored.
CBS News (2010)- The public is increasingly skeptical of the health care reform bill signed into law last week, a new CBS News poll shows.
More Americans now disapprove of the legislation, and many expect their costs to rise and the quality of their care to worsen; few expect the reforms to help them.
The poll, conducted March 29 through April 1, found that the president's efforts to build up support for the bill appear to be ineffective.
Fifty-three percent of Americans say they disapprove of the new reforms, including 39 percent who say they disapprove strongly. In the days before the bill passed the House, 37 percent said they approved and 48 percent disapproved.

Guess what? We got it shoved down our throats anyway.
Wanna know why? Because Harry Reid says, "We know what's best."
"We"? "We" who? "We" the democrats? Not "we" the people?
Reminder: The proper answer to Tenzing psychotic attempt to make you defensive about being on the same side as fred is fred speaks for himself.

Tenzing's sick need to bully and brow beat you for standing by your beliefs speaks for itself. fred thinks you're doing a good job expressing yourself.

Great quote from the Wall Street Journal;

Obama's admirers sometimes describe him as a "rock star." If so, he's a one-hit wonder. They thought they were getting the Beatles but ended up with A Flock of Seagulls.

More;

ABC News reports that President Obama Wednesday "had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny's BBQ on Capitol Hill":

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

The White House eventually settled the tab. Yesterday we had a chuckle at the expense of what the New York Times called Obama's "fresh metaphor": "It's like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff, and then, just as you're sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab!"

We didn't realize how fresh the metaphor was.

You're one of those leftists that think giving to religious charity (and charities in general) is a hindrance to your political party's agenda.

The less money religious charities have to help the less fortunate, the more they have to depend on the government.

Just look at how much your prez and v-prez give to charitable organizations.

Obama's White Base Shows Cracks Compared With 2008

Support down five points since 2008 among all voters, but more among key 2008 white supporters

PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup Daily tracking indicates Barack Obama is receiving less support in the 2012 presidential election from some of the white subgroups that gave him the strongest support in 2008. These include non-Hispanic white registered voters who are 18 to 29 years old, female postgrads, and the nonreligious, among others.
