Obama is not the descendant of slaves, so this term shouldn’t really be offensive (it’s idiomatic, not personal) — but I imagine the Left will be rather niggardly with their tolerance on this.

Would like more of the video to see it in context... I get the impression StupidRick said “cotton pickin” where an even less-learned person would have said “he’s the G_d-dammned president...”

I’m not trying to defend the putz - but this comment is much ado about nothing.

Rick Sanchez is a liberal, therefore, he cannot be a racist.

But save this in case a conservative says the same thing so we can diffuse the obvious indignation that will ensue.

Rather said Obama failed at selling watermelons at the side of the road - so now they got him picking cotton.

If Rush said it, CNN/MSNBC et al would be all over, but since a liberal said it, as far as they are concerned, it never happened.

There is nothing demeaning about being a cotton picker....there were black and white pickers working side by side on struggling farms in rural areas. Cotton and tobacco built this nation before the industrial revolution.

I was thinking he has double owner blood. The Dunhams are reputedly descendants of slave owners and his African side is Muslim who are known to trade in African flesh.

I cant stand Sanchez but I dont have a problem with him using the word cotton-pickin’.

Guess I’ve have had enough of the speech police.

Obama is not the descendant of slaves.. I’ll give that but he’s making slaves out of all of us to pay for his Marxist agenda.

It’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out. I’m sure Sanchez will get an easier time of it that had say, Rush or Greta Van Susteren(sp?) said that.

That said, part of me wishes that nothing *does* come of this. Sanchez is a complete jerk, but I don’t want clowns like Sharpton or Al-Shabazz getting air time trying to make something out what looks like nothing from here.

Of course there is nothing wrong with that figure of speech...except when we say it.

Hope he has to grovel.

If Obama had ever actually picked any cotton, and dealt with trying to pry the lint bolls out of those razor sharp leaf spikes that protect them, maybe he wouldn’t be so drooling stupid. It’s not something you can be casual about.

As someone that actually picked cotton as a kid, I am offended. Comparing Obama to a cotton picker is an offense to all cotton pickers. Obama would not last 15 minutes as a cotton picker.

S’okay, the libs say, he apologized for saying it right afterward. He says “cotton pickin” like, all the time. Didn’t mean it as a racist remark, y’see.

I sure hope Hannity, Beck, Sarah and anyone else on the Right gets the message that this tactic works! /s

Barack Obama won’t open new bottles of aspirin because he’s too proud to pick the cotton ball out of the top.

Obama won't even take aspirin. He's too proud to pick the cotton off the top of the bottle. Obama probably wouldn't know how to pick cotton if it was shoved into his ears.
