Grandson of slaves: Obama is our Moses

SLEDGE, Mississippi (CNN) -- James Presley stands amid chopped cotton, the thick Mississippi mud caked on his well-worn boots. A smile spreads across his face when he talks about voting for Barack Obama and what that might mean for generations to come. His voice picks up a notch. He holds his head up a bit higher.

"There's a heap of pride in voting for a black man," he says.

“There’s a heap of pride in voting for a black man,”

Racist old fart.

And here I thought Martin Luther King, Jr. was “their” Moses.

How soon we forget...

Obviously a fabrication.

The only people voting on the basis of racism were whites who didn’t vote for Comrade Hopenchange.

At least according to CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the Obama Adulation Society.

Would I be vilified if I said “There’s pride in voting for a white man”?

Exactly. This drives me up the wall when people call him a black man. I have nephews and nieces that are mulatto. I call them boys and girls. Not black boys or black girls.

There’s pride in voting for a conservative American candidate. Know where I can find one?

Bob Marley is considered black while Slash is believed by many to be a white musician. Both have a black parent and a white parent.

Barry Soetoro has tanlines when you see pictures of him at the beach.

Someday, the truths some of us know about Zero will surface. Like the name he campaigned with, probably isn’t even his legal name. I think he started going by Barack Hussein Obama when he began his politcal maneuvering in Chicago to give himself “street cred”. Can’t go around with a name like Barry when you’re in a Black Liberation Church. There are many aliases he was known by...Barry Soetoro, or Barry Obama etc. as we all know.

He never even regained US citizenship after being a legal(kind of) citizen of Indonesia. And the original citizenship issue,,,,come on, why would he hide the $10 document that would show he is a natural born citizen? Only answer is, the BC sealed in Hawaii does not show he was natural born, but born in Kenya.

Someday, someday, the truth will come to light. The rubes who voted for him based on his color, are pure and simple racists, and useful idiots.

I fear Mr. Presley is going to end his life as a very bitter and disappointed man.

Emerging from a sad background of loss of liberty and slavery, he is heading into a future full of it.

I voted for Alan Keyes in the 2008 Texas GOP primary. I certainly wasn’t going to vote for Huckabee or McCain in the 2008 primary (although I did vote McCain-Palin in the general election).

The elderly won’t find themselves living a life of servitude. They have social security and will just have to learn to do without.

Although the unfulfilled promise of socialized medicine may warm his heart (he probably won’t live long enough to ever actually BENEFIT from it, let alone qualify for costly live saving procedures). Those are the breaks when the government picks up your tab through tax dollars.

Alan Keyes would be much better than Obambi. And if Obambi is as much Arab as they say, then Mr. Keyes was the only black man in the race, at least by springtime.

I can understand the pride in a black man voting for another for President.

There could be even more pride in it if he were qualified.

Majority of black voters voted for Obama because he is black, majority of college students voted for Obama because he is black, large portion of Jewish voters voted for Obama because he is black, you get what you vote for a black man, thats it don’t expect anything more because you didn’t spend the time to research and read what he is all about, you just sat in front of your TV and accepted CNN and MSNBC’S propaganda because it hurts to much to THINK! SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES, sadly we have to also

You left out the millions of PC whites who voted for him because he's ‘black’. My sister voted for him because he's black. She has an adopted daughter from China and said that she thought he would be a good example as she has a ‘child of color’. I pointed out that her daughter was born in China but she persisted. I haven't spoken to her in a while. I do not respond well to those who voted for 0bama; especially without finding out who he is. Stupid is as stupid does. In my book everyone who voted for 0bama is stupid and that includes some very close Professor friends.

All I have to go by is what he is quoted as saying — and, yes, the news is notorious for misquoting people.
