Obama And Those Pesky Racists

Typical Barack Obama, yet again injecting race into his campaign and leveling unfounded charges of racism against the republicans, while completely ignoring his own.
Speaking at a fundraiser yesterday, in Jacksonville, Florida, Obama said, â€œThe choice is clear. Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign theyâ€™re going to run. Theyâ€™re going to try to make you afraid. Theyâ€™re going to try to make you afraid of me. Heâ€™s young and inexperienced and heâ€™s got a funny name. And did I mention heâ€™s black?
Heâ€™s got a feisty wife.â€
It has been the liberalâ€™s that have injected race into this campaign, from the very beginning. This includes Obama. This has in no way come from the right. However, what a grand scheme he has concocted in his efforts to not be questioned, or challenged on his lack of experience, his failed Marxist agenda for this country, and his own questionable personal history â€“ including, but not limited to, the known racist, anti-American, jew hating, homegrown spiritual advisors, and terrorists, whom he calls â€œmentorsâ€ and â€œfriends.â€
It was not the republican side that referred to Obama as â€œBarack the Magic Negro,â€ and claimed any white person voting for him was doing so out of white guilt. Nor was it the republicans that questioned whether or not he was â€œblack enough.â€
How can we forget the democrats bringing up Obamaâ€™s admitted past drug use, and going one step further and throwing in some drug selling rumors for good measure. And hey, how about those rumors of a tape with Michelle, at an event with Louis Farrakhan, in which she referred to â€œwhitey.â€
I could go on with the rampant racism on the democrat side of the isle, but itâ€™s certainly clear Obama holds the race card, and he intends to play it at every turn. Obama, the same mulatto that gave a speech on race, as opposed to discussing his racist, anti-American, anti-Jewish pastor of 20 years, threw his own â€œracist white grandmotherâ€ under the bus and then proclaimed her to be a â€œtypical white person.â€ Why? In an effort to give himself street creed in the black community.
Obama, the same man who claims someone like Don Imus, who insulted the Rutgers Womenâ€™s Basketball Team, would never work for him, yet refused to denounce his 20 year friendship, and close relationship with his self-professed spiritual advisor, whose racist, anti-American, anti-Jew rants have offended those around the world, regardless of race. Obama was in no way concerned about the impact of Reverend Wright on his children that sat in the pews listening to this hate-filled trash every Sunday morning.
Of course, lest we forget the only reason Obama even moved to Chicago in the first place was due to their history of launching black politicians that do well.
Let me be very clear. I donâ€™t care about Obamaâ€™s race. That is his game, and the game of his followers, and they will be playing this game out of necessity. They will continue to make these unfounded, untrue, unsupported claims of racism coming from the right, while ignoring the very racism they inject on a daily basis, as Obama did in his speech yesterday. They will pound those that will not vote for him due to his race, but will extol as virtuous those that vote for him because of his race.
Obama is desperate to have people believe that when he is challenged it is because he is black. He needs people to ignore political campaign history, in which all candidates are fully vetted, and openly challenged by the opposing side. What Obama needs most is for the people to not focus on the issues, because the more the issues are brought to the front, the more clear it becomes that Obama is nothing more than a puppet on a string â€“ someone else is telling him what to think, what to say, and how to say it. Obviously that is someone with the experience Obama does not have.
As for his wife, there is a reason she is currently under going a well publicized overhaul. Her public image is deplorable. She is not well liked, and she is probably one of his hardest selling points. She comes off as an overbearing, racist, angry, bitter woman. I have no doubt thatâ€™s exactly who and what she is. When she gets that head going, with her finger raised and swinging side to side, and pinches her face, she looks like she is ready to kick off her shoes for a street brawl. I wait for her to raise her fists and fight anybody and everybody that gets in her way. It will be interesting to see if the campaign can sell the new version.
Obama is correct about two things. I, along with others, will in fact make it a point to remind everyone of his horrific lack of experience.
Obama is wrong in his assertion that whatever we say is based on race. No Obama, let us be clear. We do not want a anti-American, Marxist in the White House. I know you want it be about the color of your skin. I know you need it to be an issue of race. You have nothing else. You are, by choice and necessity, the candidate of race. And that is one monkey you canâ€™t put on the back of the republicans.
It is a choice between hope and fear. Obama is hoping the false allegations of racism will be enough to instill the fear of being labeled a racist when anyone challenges him. It will never happen. I hold no such fear.
