Direct quoting some of what has been said by the Obamabots isn’t racist. Not all of those quotes came from blacks. I’ve heard white people speaking that way (it must be their education).
That is a valid point. Gansta Rap has glorified ghetto. Many young people where baggy pants hanging below their undies and use that vernacular.
We have to acknowledge that our culture is changing. This message is loud and clear. Republicans not only failed to articulate ideas in a Reaganesque or Gingrich fashion, we failed to understand that this new generation is coming out in force and they reject logic and facts. They are moved by a feeling, by what’s cool. We MUST figure out how to convey our ideas in a “cool” way.
Everyone said McCain’s experience was better. Most felt better in these times with McCain’s preparation. But McCain is not cool and Obama is. Don’t know what we want to change to or care how we change, just want “change” because change is cool.
Appearing racist is NOT cool. I can’t judge your heart or intent, and was wrong to address you the way that I did. But, if we want to be successful in reaching this culture, we must do so in a manner that is “cool”. If we don’t get that we miss it entirely. Ideas don’t count. Takes too much effort to think them. The facts are confusing and they seem to change depending upon who you talk to. Too much effort to research. Don’t want to read the article you send me. I do want to be inspired, so give me some showmanship. The ONLY showmanship we have seen from Repubs in recent years was the RNC convention and flickerings of Palin.
Obama knows how to touch people like this. We don’t.
