Viewers wrote in about the RNC song, "Barack the Magic Negro" with the majority feeling that it is not acceptable. Viewers also enjoy seeing Ed Henry in Hawaii as he seems to have a "happier attitude." Some also wrote in with their comments and opinions on the bombing in Gaza.
Puff the magic Negro in reference to President Elect Obama is not acceptable dialogue. It is a paradox in reference to the children's song puff the magic dragon. This is not political satire.
The song about Obama is not an insult. Barack Obama IS a negro. A great many people voted for him because he is one. There is nothing wrong with the race or the word.
To compose and forward a little "innocent" ah-shucks song about President-Elect Obama shows Chip Saltsman as the crack head many of us believed all along. He and his friend Russ Limbaugh should start a band.
I'm getting a real kick out of that little impish grin on Ed Henry's face now that he is reporting in from his hardship post on a beach in Hawaii.
I wished we had 20 more of people like you. You are my hero for bringing the truth night after night.
I am a retired Serviceman of 23 years. What is going on with this Chip Saltsman. If you were to say these things in the military you would be court marshaled. How can someone of this stature get away with this? He is making me ashamed to be a republican.
While I very much admire Anderson Cooper's work in general and his work on AC 360 in particular, I become discouraged when a person such as Larry Elders is given air time. I am tolerant of diverse viewpoints; however, the unthinking rant Elders provided this evening (December 29) is really beneath contempt. Further, it badly taints the excellence for which Anderson Cooper is known and admired.
There are two terrorists here – Hamas and Israel itself – the world needs to see how Israel has raped Palestine not just with this current use of holocaust like violence and bombing of Gaza – Palestinians have a right to security and freedom and to a quality life as well
We need to stop sending our taxpayers' money to Israel until they stop the violence. I don't want my tax money supporting airstrikes that kill 50 children in one day.
I think that the world community has done all it can do to help bring peace to the Middle East, especially the Israeli Palestinian problem. I think now is the time for the world leaders to back away and let fate finally take its course.
Two wrongs don't make it right. I think Israel is just as guilty of murdering the Palestinian men, women and children. They don't have anything to do with the conflict. The Jews claim to be righteous and God-fearing people but they kill innocent people. It is a shame and I think they are hypocrites. Could you show the damage of Hamas rockets on Israel?
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
