    I retract it unreservedly.
    My friend, you'd have to stumble a lot more to be as unworthy as I have been. At heart you are a good man and normally I keep my mouth shut but I was hoping for better out of you and you proved you are better than some people realize. May the Lord walk with you always.

    It's easy to lose sight of what's right when you feel besieged on all sides. No worries Gator. It happens to the best of us.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I feel bad for her, she was practically disowned before her death by the grandson she raised and saw grow into a candidate for the most powerful position in the world. Even when she was lying on her deathbed, he made political points out of the situation.

    Maybe it was more the MSM than him, but either way the entire situation looked more like a political stunt than a man actually caring for the woman who raised him.

    Prayers for her safe trip, even if she was a "typical white person."

    Oh Madelyn's absentee vote will count, which is kind of heartwarming even in the face of how sad it must be for Barack.

    which is my point as well. She's not free from all the bigotry and fear she had towards her grandson.

    I don't agree with the man, but I'm very sorry for his loss and hope his family can find peace in this difficult time and our prayers are with them.
