    If she was living a "Christ-like honoring life" she wouldn't have sent it in the first place.

    I saw this on last nights show, and was so disgusted by this e-mail, sent by a GOP person.
    But it does not surprise me. Just like i have said, these republicans are all bunch of liars, and racist. When will this stop, the degrading of our President, by these racist republicans.

    I am a supporter of our President, and will vote for him again. This Country can not stand on this kind of slander, and abuse of our elected President. These republicans need to stand up and disown, this kind of pure racism. This woman needs to resign her post, yesterday.
    peace out.

    As a parent of school age children, I have had to explain more about racisim than I ever experienced in my lifetime. Although you say Mrs Davenport is a Christian her action were not. If she was a teacher she would have been fired for her actions. Instead she is given a pass since she apologized. Let's face it. Our elected president has been halted at every turn in his efforts to improve our country by narrow minded republicans because he is half black. This saddens me and hinders our nation as a whole.

    Why do we make such news of trivial, un newsworthy stories? Where are the reports about the depression this country is in? Where is th report about gas? I could care less about a parody. How about just doing your job? Report some newsworthy NEWS.....

    The comment was absolutely racist. To refer to the President of the United States as a chimp crosses all lines, her not understanding that it racist is bogus

    Racism is racism regardless how is been sugar coated. It is not so clear why some people passionately and strongly hated this President. Why can't they just support him rather than all these negative energies and efforts to bring him down? This is too obvious and they cannot even hide these inacceptable behaviors at all. Do they even think that others are watching these offensive and hateful attitudes that they are showing towards the President from other countries outside of the United States? Let us love one another and stop showing hatred, bitterness, and emotional extreme dislike towards our fellow brothers and sisters. Love others as yourself. Love you.
