Double speak and double standards all rolled up into one.
Eugene Robinson and a multitude of others have been running around talking about how Rev. Wright isn't an extremist. This is just what black preachers do. Really. Don't they realize that when they say that they are actually confirming what every white person has feared – that blacks as a whole believe this nonsense? Wow! That's reassuring.
Wasn't it Jessie Jackson who recounted crossing the street when a black man approached him at 2 AM? He's obviously as racist as Obama's grandmother.
So … if 90% of blacks are voting for Obama, they're doing so strictly because they know that he's the best man for the job? They're not voting for him because he's black?
Actually Bill Clinton was spot on. We need to be talking about the issues that will make or break this country. All this racial stuff is a horrible distraction.
Obama's people need to zip it and stop playing the race card at every opportunity. It has backfired and the damage that they have done to themselves is self evident.
The problem is that it has and will harm Democratic chances at winning the general if Obama wins the nomination. Is it racist to say that or is it just the truth?
Who is America going to vote for? An old fart they know or a whining victim with a glass jaw?
