Reading the various analysis and reactions to Barack
Obama created more new questions than he answered. I still find it remarkable Obama sat for 20 years and listened to the message of hate spewed by his pastor. 20 years is the key ingredient. I saw on the news today where someone provided a picture of Bill Clinton in which Rev. Wright was present.
So what? Presidents have their pictures made with thousands of people. But, they don't sit and listen to hate speech for 20 years. They don't donate thousands of dollars to support the person spewing the hate speech.
I'm not excited that John McCain accepted John Hagee's endorsement. But, again, John McCain hasn't listened to John Hagee's "milder than Wright" crap for 20 years.
The most comical and sad part of it all is the stuff Barack
Some how, Barack
As far as Barack
Silly, stupid, ridiculous comments about Obama's speech:
Mirror on America blog: For me, the moment that I began to cry was this:
The moment you start to cry over a political speech, you are certifiably insane. Obama is trying to win the presidency. Like 90% of those in politics, he will say almost anything to win a majority of votes. If there is any place one needs deep seated cynicism, it's when listening to politicians.
Bonnie Erbe on CNN Newsroom:
Well, I would like to say, everybody views the race issue through very different lenses. I do not believe, for example, that white men have a right to tell me from my perspective what is sexist and what is not sexist. And I don't believe, as a white American, that I have a right to tell African-Americans what is racist and what isn't.
So anything a black person says is racist, I must accept? Anything that a woman says is sexist, I must accept? Sorry, don't buy that lack of logic. We must discuss. We must have a dialogue. I'm not willing to give up my autonomy and freedom to some race hustler. Of course, Erbe is a leftie and as such her powers of logic are quite limited.
