How do you feel about criticism directed at Gov. Bill Haslam stemming from his hiring of Samar Ali as the international director for the state’s Department of Economic and Community Development?

Little Bennie,Little Bennie, what you said in reference to AN AMERICAN MUSLIM was, "She seems to be in the minority of Muslims who adopt basically western values and doesn't want to impose Shariah on the West."
If you are putting an American Muslim in your minority/majority crosshairs, it naturally follows that your comment includes American Muslims. Parsing words to mislead readers is what Teapublicans do best, so this really comes as no surprise.

This trait is indigneous to all Republicans, TeaPublicans, Birthers, Townies:....they can never admit when they're WRONG. Can never say, "Gee, I did not know that..." Gee, I'll look into that..." Gee, no shit?"
I've, we've, ALL told "yogi" to go F*** himself re: Obama's B.C. but he continues onward.
I, we, ALL saw Obama's B.C. posted on the Internet, in 3-D, front and back, during all of 2007-08. Until he was elected and the Hawai'i server crashed every 5 minutes from freaks wanting NOW to "see it".
But, this group of losers never thought he stood a chance so why look at it?
Obama smoked whitey and bobble-head badly, so they double-downed, coalesced, and sprang up 2 weeks after Inaguration Day to form terrorist cells all across America.
"Take Back Our Country!" Where were these a-holes when Bush invaded Iraq?
"Oh, he's keeping us safe..." 12 years later a bombing in Baghdad every week. A cool trillion wasted.
Go ahead, elect Romney. He and his family are as fake as it gets.
All he wants is Florida and will do anything to get it including renouncing his own religion, wear a yamika, and cry at the Wailing Wall for all the jew's pain and suffering.
Faux Ann, right behind him.

I keep thinking, "poor Mitt was born with a silver foot in his mouth." We should have listened to Ann Richards when she said the same thing about George Bush. Mitt is such a joke that he scares the hell out of me. TN, just because he is a republican, maybe one should dig a little deeper. This man is a destroyer of the American way. It is all about greed.

TN has gone the way of the TEA PARTY, (crazy)

I hate to tell you this, but that piece of paper you saw as Barry's birth certificate was a fake, made in a computer.

I hate to tell you this, but I'm going to laugh like hell at you people when you finally find out who he is.

Muslims are evil and are dedicated to murdering ALL non-muslims. Trained from the cradle.

OK--I'm awful for not wanting to be murdered. Terrible me. I just cannot become a spineless wussy in the name of liberalism. Something about survival.

Obama is a muslim from Kenya. No wonder he is doing his best to destroy America.

Obama's birth certificate is clearly doctored. Liberals would be doing cheetah flips if it were an investigation of GWB.

Did I say I hate liberalism? A movement of fools, spawned from hatred and jealousy, about nothing--except taking from producers. A haven for freeloaders and socialists.

You seem to be one of the few on this site that knows what's going on. Have you heard Sheriff Arpaio's findings through his Cold Posse?

dargent7 posted Hawaii had showed his birth certificate but they didn't show it to Sheriff Joe's Cold Posse.

That was 57 states Barry said he had been to and he had one more to go. I believe there's 58 [states] in Kenya.
