Hillary Clinton Crying Foul Wonâ€™t Fly
By: Ken Hughes
Thereâ€™s no mistaking what Bill and Hillary Clinton said pertaining to some of Barrack Obamaâ€™s claims to his African American heritage. In a moment of frustration they misspoke offending many in the African American community. It was unintentional and taken totally out of context. Iâ€™m sure there was no deliberate intention to show any disrespect to Dr, Martin Luther King. Hillary was simply pointing out a white president Lyndon B. Johnson and the United States Congress played an equal roll in the second emancipation of blacks in America. Blacks should have realized her intent and not gone ballistic over a few unintended slights if indeed they were slights.
Heroâ€™s are recognized for their contributions to conflicts not for their legislative accomplishments. Ask any African American who Pedro Alonzo Nino was and few will know he was the first African to come to the New World with Christopher Columbus in 1492. How many African Americans know of Crispus Attucis the first Colonial, a black man killed in the Revolutionary War in the Boston Massacre of 1770? How many Americans know of the Black Regiment who fought on the side of the Union in the Civil War or of the Tuskegee Airman who flew fighter escort for bombers in WWII? There were the Buffalo Soldiers who provided security for White Pioneers moving west in the late 1800â€™s? In relation to their population African Americans have contributed equally to the security of America, why donâ€™t African American leaders and educators teach this rather than the hatred they preach and profit from now?
Could it be time the African American community starts defining their own culture in positive terms and stops allowing political correctness created by white liberals and Hip Hop Black Preachers to do it for them? So far Barrack Obama is one of the few African Americans willing to stand toe to toe with the white political community and ask for no special privileges. Obama may be naÃ¯ve and inexperienced but heâ€™s a man who deserves respect.
The campaign for 2008 isnâ€™t going according to the way the Clintonâ€™s had scripted it. Hillary was to be the nominee and in a magnolias moment of compassion she would choose a black, Barrack Obama as her running mate. Barrack Obama would have been willing to accept such an outcome had it not been for the publicâ€™s decision to turn on Hillary and his instant recognition of opportunity knocking.
Hillary Clinton made what may turn out to be two fatal mistakes in her campaign. A political candidate should do as a young man proposing to his future bride, get down on one knee and beg, make all sorts of promises and pray for the privilege of her saying yes to his proposal. Hillary acted more like the preacher than a candidate by dictating the terms. Hillaryâ€™s second mistake was bringing Bill into the campaign to tarnish her image. For the past seven years Bill Clinton has been more of a joke than a statesman. Every time Hillary misspeaks Bill explains making it worse, Bill defines his presidency in 80 % of his speeches, and Hillary gets 20%. Hillary is creating an image of being the surrogate for Bills third term in the Whitehouse. This makes a lot of voter very nervous
In the real world Barrack Obamaâ€™s ethnicity would rightfully be challenged.
Barrack Obama can lay no claim to the civil rights movement or any legitimist discrimination. He grew up in Hawaii, one of the most racially homogenized states in the union. His father was a true African not a poor southern share cropperâ€™s son. Obama didnâ€™t come in contact with mainland racism until after his University days when he moved to Chicago and associated himself with Louis Farrakhan and Jesse Jackson bilking the government out of awards for pseudo impoverished blacks. Thereâ€™s no question Obamaâ€™s been anointed the first black president as Hillary was anointed the first woman president the question is who will win?
Gradually the Liberal message â€œAmerica is a disasterâ€ is loosing popularity. The publicâ€™s having an opportunity to look around and see the fact as they are Americaâ€™s in pretty good shape. When Democrats say they are the party of change the voters are beginning to look to see what those changes will bring and so far they arenâ€™t impressed. Change goes both ways good and bad and so far the Democrats havenâ€™t been able to define what their change will bring that is any better than what we have now.
Hillary wasted valuable recourses running for president against George Bush she obviously over rated her popularity and underestimated his. Hillary has made the mistake of believing her publicity and avoiding true public opinions. When all the political fires are put out and the smoke goes away itâ€™s the public [aka] voters who make the decisions not campaign staffers, pundits and MSM or internet bloggers. â€œWE THE PEOPLEâ€ are still at the helm of the ship of state, we are the decision makers regardless what weâ€™re told by politicians.
Know the facts then vote your conscience, just be sure to vote for what you believe in!
