VIDEO: Demonstrators March Against Koch, Romney in the Hamptons

Protestors target David Koch's fundraiser for GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney.

Though liberal demonstrators were not permitted to pass a — keeping them far away from David Koch's Meadow Lane estate where — they still marched down the Southampton Village ocean road carrying a "Romney Had a Koch Problem" banner and chanted their rallying cries.

A small group of about five Romney supporters, including one carrying a sign that read "Mitt Romney Is It," were permitted by the police and Secret Service to hold their closer to the estate.

Dona - the race is about 47% to 47% (a statistical tie with the margin of error). I hardly think that 47% of the U.S. are crazy white confederates. Also, I do believe that Obama won resoundingly in 2008, and kicked the white guys ass. So, America is not so racist as you make out (in my opinion). Lastly, did anyone hear Morgan Freeman on NPR say that "Obama is not a black man" and is not our first black president ?? Freeman said that "we have yet to elect our first black president" because Obama had a white mother. Pretty outrageous. I am surprised more people have not heard about this one . . . . .

I think we should have got past the whole idiotic "Muslim president" comments enough by now to make it politically correct to say that if that is what you believe, you are a real dope.

Hey, I should know, I bankrolled the entire campaign. This was a statement by Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Nile-TV. It was made on the «Round table show». This is the statement recorded: Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda. Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel. Source: Israeli magazine, Israel today.

It's not outrageous what Morgan Freeman said. He said Obama is our first mixed race president. It's true! But at least it's a start because we're a country filled with mixed race people. The color of "The Man" is changing finally!

Am I the only one deeply concerned with how divided the UNITED STATES of AMERICA has become? "United we stand, divided we fall." As a reporter dealing with elected officials as well as every day citizens, I learned that there are good people on both sides of this contentious debate. There are hardworking and successful Liberal Arts majors and there are caring, generous and deserving BMW owners. This fear-based Us against Them mentality has got to stop! And what ever happened to the separation of Church and State?
