For those of you not as familiar with him, he is the scumbag, piece of garbage former mayor of Washington DC, and current board member of the city council.  He was videotaped purchasing and smoking crack cocaine by the FBI in the 90s, and was charged with various drug charges with no real repricutions, yet has been elected and reelected to several postions in DC.  His latest comments regarding Asians were blatantly racist, and yet it hasn't gotten nearly the publicity it should (big surprise).  I would think President Obama would come out and address the situation, with harsh words for Barry's open racism, since it did happen in his "backyard" in Washington DC, but he didn't (big surprise).  Just curious if I'm the only one who feels strongly about this.

Obama needs to keep his stupid behind comments out of all this garbage.  He should have bigger fish to fry.  He comments on this Treyvon garbage and all hell breaks loose.  Yo, Obama...shut your fat face mother guy and run the country, you socialist piece of garbage.

I would say an elected official making comments that blatantly racist in out capital city is a big deal and should be addressed by our commander and chief, if it was a white politician saying it about blacks, you better believe Obama would be all over it

Someone notify the president that a degenerate gambler on Covers.com, one with a avatar of an NFL player making the "This is the garbage right here" hand single, believes he should comment on the Marion Barry comments ASAP because....he said so.

Obama's aides are readying the podium as I type. Sit tight.

Scalabrine, the most pompous blowhard on this site makes a comment like this that exposes his hypocritical little vagina.  Priceless.

I have noticed he is not attacking this one as much and with as much vigor and venom as in other threads.
