from "Dreams of My Father" by Barack Obama
Barack Obama was on NBC's Meet the Depressed yesterday and was asked the following question by Tom Brokaw.
"Here is some of the perception that you're working against based on the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll about your qualifications to be a commander in chief. Let's share with our viewers now that poll. Knowledge and experience, Senator McCain ahead of you by a factor of more than 2-to-1. Would he be a good commander-in-chief, again, 2-to-1, 53 to 25 percent. And then there is this as well, which is an important question that we asked our audience. "Who's the riskier choice" to be the president with two wars and an economic meltdown going on at home? Senator McCain does much better in that poll than you do. Does that surprise you?"
Obama's response was his typical talking point, "if they'd asked who'd bring change, I win hands down" and also added:
"....And, and so what that indicates is that the American people are ready for change. But, as I've said before, this is a big leap for people. You know, I don't look like previous commanders in chief."Clearly, in answering this question, Obama is dealing the race card and, to any American, this type of response should be offensive.
This mindset has been building in the last few months among liberals. Even during the Democrat primaries, the topic of racial bias came up. The Washington ComPost recently wrote an article claiming 3 in 10 Americans have some kind of race bias. In a free local tabloid in the Reston/Herndon area back in May, the Editor and Publisher, Christopher Moore opined if America was ready for a black President under the headline "The Good, and Bad, of America." Moore's liberal shame at America is based on an ignorant racist comment he heard on a bicycle trip in the South 23 years ago. He used that prism to ponder the close election of Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder in 1989, when the polls showed him further ahead.
Even politicians have played the race card in this Presidential race. Howard "the Duck" Dean screamed that any criticism of Obama over the Racist Reverend Wright was "race baiting." More recently, New York Governor David Paterson implied that if John McCain were to win this year's Presidential Election, it would be a "victory for racism."
What is this supposed to be? Are Obama and Paterson trying to blackmail Americans into voting for Obama because of race?
While I don't doubt that there may be some who will vote against Obama due to skin color, I think that number will be much smaller than the liberals are making it out to be. A majority of Americans are concerned about the lack of experience (143 days in the Senate) of Obama, his far-Left voting record, his connections to anti-American radicals and racists (Rev. Wright and Fr. Pfleger), his arrogance and (as we saw in Germany) his contempt of our armed forces, especially our wounded.
But if you want to see where the real racism is, it is with Gov. Paterson, the liberal media, those who are voting for Obama specifically because of his race, and Obama himself.
Ever since the Rev. Wright thing broke, I've been convinced that Obama is as much of a stone-hearted racist as any cretin wearing a white hood. How could someone join a church after being inspired by a sermon hearing about "white folks greed runs a world in need" and stay with that "church" for 20 years of hate towards whites and America? Calling his white grandmother a "typical white person" was another red flag. Can you imagine any Republican calling someone a "typical black person" or belonging to a "church" where white supremacy was preached? They'd never receive the free pass that Barack Obama has received.
Here's some of Obama's comments about white people from his book & other sources:
Here's more examples of Obama's racism. Like most Democrats, he used that New Orleans hurricane of 2005 for racial politics, warning of a "quiet riot" among blacks. He also used color as in issue in the races of two black men running for Senate in 2006-Michael Steele in Maryland and Harold Ford Jr. in Tennessee.
Obama campaigned against Steele, telling black voters "not to vote along racial lines" in Maryland. However, when Obama campaigned for Ford in Tennessee, saying "I know that all of you are going to work the next couple of days to make sure it happens, because I'm feeling lonely in Washington."
Why the hypocrisy, Barack? Are black conservatives 3/5ths of a person in the eyes Barack Obama, Harry Belafonte and other liberals? Likewise, where was the outrage from Obama, the Washington ComPost and Christopher Moore when Steele was pelted by white liberals with Oreo cookies in an attack with racial overtones (black on the outside, white in the middle) and depicting him as a minstrel on a blog? These liberals were silent also when white liberal cartoonist Ted Rall called Condoleezza Rice a "house nigga," or when other cartoons with racist overtones were drawn about her.
The only people making Barack Obama's skin color an issue in this campaign (besides him and his wife) are liberals, because, as the Obamessiah stated in his book, it makes up for his limitations.
It also disqualifies him as being the "uniter" he has claimed he could be.
