    Burris denied seat in US Senate to succeed Obama

    Roland Burris announced Tuesday he was rejected for Barack Obama's Senate seat, in a bizarre rainy-day scene on the Capitol grounds as lawmakers awaited the gaveling of the 111th Congress into session.

    Standing amid a huge throng of reporters and television cameras in a cold and steady rain, Burris, 71, declared that he had been informed that "my credentials are not in order and will not be accepted."

    Um no black democrats only voted for Obama because he is black. Which is why 95% voted for Obama.

    What in the holy horseshit are you blathering about? They are denying him a senate seat because he was appointed by a corrupt Gov. and didn't have his credentials signed off by the Ill. Secretary of State because he was appointed buy a corrupt Governor.

    They're denying him the seat because he isn't the choice of the Messiah.

    One important thing to consider here is Reid's contention that the Senate has the ability to choose who they can seat, outside of the limited Constitutional parameters. Unfortunately for the Dems, that's not the case. But if Reid can establish precedent with Burris, then the Democrat Senate can use this newly discovered "power" to seat Franken, avoiding Minnesota law altogether (by declaring Coleman unfit).

    After that, it's only a short step to the Democrat majority using this power to deny seats to Republicans for any myriad of reasons. Unlikely, but this series of events is setting up Congress to allow Congressmen to decide their own successors, ignoring the will of the states.

    actually - it goes to show who the real racists are.

    You mean the party that was responsible for our nation's first black president? Or the party of David Duke? Which one are you talking about?

    The party of jim crow - separate but equal - a Klegal of the KKK as a party leader - and the one that calls black people racist names when they dare to think for themselves.

    BTW - voting for someone just because he's black is not better than voting against someone just because he's black. Jackass.

    So that's why all the conservative racist Southerners and the states of slavery, lynchings, and Jim Crowe laws are now 100% Republican. So you admit the GOP is the racist party. I get it now.

    They're the same one, idiot.

    Duke was a registered Democrat until 1989.
