He dropped five percentage points in three days, some one is hearing it.
You thought the speech was brilliant?
He's talking out of both sides of his mouth now. He has a history of supporting the Palestinians over Israel.
It is amazing how stupid Americans are about him till this point.
Or is it that the media did their job so well carrying his race wampum for him?
I have actually argued with white liberal dinner companions over the great Black Hope they were swooning for and they had no clue of this stuff.
I mentioned this months ago and now I have friends and relatives calling me to tell me I was right.
Mustard and relish sandwiches.
Give me a F-ing break.
If a bigot like BH Obama can get elected to the White House, would it finally put an END to the BS that black people can’t be racist because they don’t have the power structure to do anything with that prejudice?
He may get the nomination, but his chances of winning the general are zero. General election for the presidency swings on a very narrow percentage of voters in the middle, made up of middle-class, swing voters, generally white. And after being exposed to this level of black hatred (possibly for the first time), their votes are going to McCain. It could be a blowout of Reagan/Carter proportions.
No question about him! This guy is nothing but a big time slickster trying to justify Wrights speech!
Btw, there supposedly was a debate within the Obama camp about whether or not he should be giving this speech. He chose wrongly. This dude is going to have to explain all this crap and he's not going to be ale too. He condems and then tries to justify what Wright has said.
he is a very good speaker, but if you look at the actual words, he didn’t do anything but give a campaign speech, talking alot but saying nothing
I agree with you 100%
There’s a video of it. It is during the national anthem.
Denouncing slavery that does not involve whites enslaving non-whites or Christians enslaving non-Christians only elicits a ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
That is inherent paternal racism which is the foundation of liberalism and white guilt today.
Only whites have to be held to certain standards? Why? Are we more capable of controlling our behavior?
Only whites can fix that they allegedly wrought? Why? Again are whites more capable? Can minorities not fix themselves?
you beat me to it! Fact check!
Please the Light Skinded Wright has more then one Caucasion in his heritage.. his self loathing is nothing more then guilt that he isn’t black enough... heck I wouldn’t be surprised if his blackness was a product of an African via some Euro trash college.... Talk about the struggle.... the hypocrisy of Obama to relate his black heritage to the struggle of slavery is INSANE... His father’s ancestry was never enslaved by Americans his father was from Kenya not born of a plantation in Atlanta.... Obama is closer to Farrakahn’s Islam then to real Christianity... There is a broader connection on that relationship and should be explored by the media..
You're safe in urban areas as long as your name isn't whitey.
Yes he’s very dangerous. His oratory skills are truly something. It takes concerted effort to focus on the fact that he’s a socialist (and now shown to be racist) scumbag. But boy is he slick. Almost Messianic.
Has anyone checked in with Crissy Mathews to see if something went up or down his leg this morning?
Absolutely. Whoever wrote that speech earned his scratch, and more.
Heeee! I’m in Peoria!
“instead you want US—The old Racist White US Taxpayers to foot the bill)”
and reparations too.... .while your at it.
Yeah, the Reagan coalition was all about resenting blacks./s
How self-centered can one man be?
Obama would only use his office to further inflame, validate and vindicate that which he obviously believes due to his 20 year love affair with Wright....and his friendship with Ayers and Dohrn and Casto and Chavez.......it goes on and on.
I think he is trying to prove himself to the daddy he never felt wanted him (understandable)by being the halfbreed savior of oppressed folks of color standing up to the power structure in the racist West and projecting that on all of us. Projection is the delivery mode for liberal neurosis of which he is eat up with.
Remember the old Indian movies where the halfbreed like Paul Newman stands up to the white villans? yet swoons the women and placates the Indians. Hondo.
That’s Obama. Hondo Obamo.
He’s a preacher.
Wow; what a powerful, heart-rendering speech. Count me in the Obama camp. / NOT!!!
It’s all BS at this point Obama. You’re BUSTED.
There was nothing about the hatred the black minister and his ilk are spreading, He made no reference to them being wrong...only about America's reaction to their behavior.
I am so extremely disappointed (though never an Obama supporter anyway) that I can hardly say what I feel. It seems he took this opportunity to tell all of White America what is wrong with us! And he got applause. And pundits said he was "eloquent." Yes, like a forked-tongue devil. Oh my, this man is very, very dangerous.
I believe you are thinking of “Hombre”
Institutional, government-mandated and approved reverse racism that violates the Equal Protection Clause. If you're going to try to tell the truth Barack, you might as well tell the whole truth.
I look at it this way: The Republican party was formed as an abolitionist party. When a Republican got elected president, the southern states saw that the die had been cast and that things had changed, and they seceded. So, while the reason for the war was secession, it is also clear that the republican's desire to end slavery caused the secession to happen.
I didn’t hear it, but read it. so you think it’ll play in Peoria?
Obama's solution: We need lots and lots more of it...
Gritty's observation: I did not see one word in the speech about either the overriding requirement of applied individual character or application of genuine Biblical principles at any level to these problems (but I did see some phony ones, like "we are our brother's keeper")...
Gritty's solution: Therein lies both the root cause and solution to our current dilemma...
The second black man I’ve seen publicly scorn this....course Shelby is usually quite right.
Ted Williams on Great last nite surprised me by being pretty harsh on Wright and saying he torpedoed Obama...whom Ted did like.
But I noticed Leno and his band leader were still all Obama and hoping this would go away.
I chuckled about how they would react if this was about white racism....”wish it would go away”...lol
Conveniently neglecting to mention that HIS WIFE is married to a man who carries the blood of SLAVE OWNERS...but not of slaves. Surely an honest mistake (NOT)
that’s right...Hondo was about a river or something.
Hombre...Newman as an Indian half breed with a bandanna around his head who changes wardrobes to suit whichever race he is at the time and a broken down stagecoach surrounded by Richard Boone and some nasty peckerwoods and comancheros
That argument is for another thread. and there are plenty here on that already.
that is a good find
and from the IHT...a Wash Post org....hardly a Murdoch
That's exactly what most conservatives rightly believe, Barack.
The “Separation Proclamation”
I was under the impression that it was a NYT paper, because a portion of the exact same article appeared in the NYT on the same date, under a different by-line.
I’ve never seen Juan Williams as upset as he was and still is about Wright.
Now we know why his campaign staff recommend he didn’t give it. He did anyway.
I turned the speech on for a second and he was going on about someone with cancer who lost their health care coverage. Believe me, I can sympathize with that situation but it certainly wasn’t anything soaring, sounded like the same old bleak view of America as a terrible place in which everyone is suffering and victimized by something. I’m sick of hearing that crap. Has Obama ever worked a day in his life?
The Casor decision, right?
I think you just did speculate, Barack.
The decision to air it out was excellent. The speech was simply touching the bases. Some topics are bound to draw forth high flying rhetoric. Credit for airing it out.
There are Muslim Caucazoids on his father’s side. I belive one paternal grandmother or great grandmother is Saudi.
