    This man is clearly not qualified and should not allow himself to be used as a pawn in this way...

    i don't know why the Dems oppose Mr green now. He fits right in with the members in Congress. He could even have a side business selling porn to them. I have a question...would this happen if Mr Greene was white? No way thanks schim

    This is simply another clear way to show that we are not in control. Money rules the word. If indeed the republicans is behind this Bafoonery what will happen???

    He is a Republican plant and a fraud.

    I watched your interview with Mark Preston Sunday night. I am amazed that a year after the election, Mr Preston still refers to President Obama as "Mr. Obama"! I don't remember hearing President Bush, Clinton, Nixon, etc. being referred to as "Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton....." after a year in the presidency. I hear this from several reporters. Whatever one's political opinion, President Obama's title is " President"!

    Mark Sanford skips out on his governor’s duties to go cheat on his wife and kids out of the country. He comes back and quotes Bible references to win favor back from his Republican base.
    Joe Wilson, a South Carolina Congressman, proves he has no class or respect for government by shouting at the president during a speech to congress.
    Republican State Senator, Jake Knotts, refers to a candidate of his own party as well as our president as “ragheads.”
    Now, from what common sense would tell anyone, Republicans have planted someone in the democratic primaries to disrupt the competition. Clearly, the reason this particular man was planted is because he will play well to the racists of the state. What they want to say is “look at the incompetent black guy that the democrats want to put in power.”
    I will put it bluntly for South Carolina; I am from CHICAGO, and I am embarrassed at the politicians South Carolina puts forward! When will South Carolina realize that the Republicans they are electing are very bad people who exploit South Carolina’s racism and religion to get elected? The people of South Carolina should be deeply ashamed of themselves for letting this happen.

    It was clear to me Alvin was being coached via a chat line over the internet. He is clearly reading statments(answers) as they are coming in, thats why there are such long pauses between words.

    Is this a joke? What's with the lack of and slowness to responding to the questions that are asked of him. This guy is so painful to watch and listen to. And to think that he really thinks he's qualified to run for public office – seriously? What about the $10,000 he alleges that he saved from being in the army? Seriously, dude, why didn't you take that money and put it toward your conviction? Certainly smells like elephant dung to me, too. Joe Wilson have anything to do with this? Just saying...????

    Of course he's a plant by the republicans. The whole election was a fraud. Have we heard from any S.C. voter who said they actually voted for for this guy?
