One commenter from South Carolina even wrote, “did McCain just endorse Obama as pres?” Judging from what he said to one of his supporters, I can see how this commenter drew this conclusion.
In a past article I wrote concerning racism, I mentioned Barack Obama’s daughters and this one comment stood out, “This is shameful for McCain. I think about the Obama children and it hurts my heart so bad to think of something happening to their daddy makes me want to throw-up.” Yes, what these hateful supporters who have been shouting out from the audience forget is that Barack Obama does have two young daughters. So much for morality coming from the Republican Party specifically the McCain campaign.
I used to be a Republican and this new breed of Republicans I see operating the McCain campaign are so foreign to me. This is precisely why I fled the party back in 1998 and became a Democrat. The Karl Roves, the Tom Delays and others just like them alienated me. This corner of the Republican Party are certainly not putting country first, they only look to divide us. It is up to we the people come Election Day to serve as their reminders that we are a United States of America.
This week proved we cannot trust John McCain in stirring up this hate and the choosing of Sarah Palin. These are “dangerous times” cited by Barack Obama today. He is not fit to be the commander in chief come January 20th, 2009. I think his penance should be is to serve out the remainder of his senate term and let the country move on.
