JONATHAN LIVINGSTON OBAMA [Ann Coulter]
Ann Coulter.com ^ | Fe. 14, 2007 | An Coulter

Posted on 02/14/2007 3:05:18 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

I've caught Obama fever! Obamamania, Obamarama, Obama, Obama, Obama. (I just pray to God this is clean, renewable electricity I'm feeling.)

Only white guilt could explain the insanely hyperbolic descriptions of Obama's "eloquence." His speeches are a run-on string of embarrassing, sophomoric Hallmark bromides.

In announcing his candidacy last week, Obama confirmed that he believes in "the basic decency of the American people." And let the chips fall where they may!

Obama forthrightly decried "a smallness of our politics" — deftly slipping a sword into the sides of the smallness-in-politics advocates. (To his credit, he somehow avoided saying, "My fellow Americans, size does matter.")

He took a strong stand against the anti-hope crowd, saying: "There are those who don't believe in talking about hope." Take that, Hillary!

Most weirdly, he said: "I recognize there is a certain presumptuousness in this — a certain audacity — to this announcement."

What is so audacious about announcing that you're running for president? Any idiot can run for president. Dennis Kucinich is running for president. Until he was imprisoned, Lyndon LaRouche used to run for president constantly. John Kerry ran for president. Today, all you have to do is suggest a date by which U.S. forces in Iraq should surrender, and you're officially a Democratic candidate for president.

My point is that being related to someone involved in the slave trade does not make one evil. Being the owner of slave may not make you evil either. I mention Jefferson because he carried on a relationship with a slave as opposed to "forcing" himself on one.

As evidenced by the variations in color of african-americans, then and now, there was some mixing between owners and slaves.

Are we individually judged by the actions of our fore-bearers?

By your own statement, you could never vote for him just on the basis of his ancestry. Oppose him because of his ideas, plans, past actions, and party affiliations. Don't do it because of genetics.

No one gets to pick his or her ancestors, so they shouldn't be considered guilty of things their ancestors may have done wrong. Of course in this country all whites are guilty because they are white, whether or not they had ancestors here before slavery was abolished, let alone whether they are descended from any slaveowner.

There was definitely a lot of mixing--the census in the 19th century listed individuals as "mulatto" if they seemed to be or were known to be of mixed race. Some important "black" Americans like Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington had white fathers. Douglass recalls being referred to as "yellow" because of his lighter complexion.

It may be true that Jefferson slept with slaves, or at least with one slave (Sally Hemings, his deceased wife's half-sister), but it still really depends on the family tradition of Sally's descendants that that happened.

Not to worry...it's easy to forget which ping lists you've asked to be on.

I work late, so I'm not home when the new AC column is posted. It's usually up for hours before I have a chance to do the ping. :)

Exactly! That is my point.

We don't get to pick our religion at birth either.

The guy I feel sorry for is Harold Ford. The former representative from Tennessee is also black, a Democrat, about the same age as Obama, and is every bit as attractive. The difference is, when he talks, you don't fantasize about plunging knitting needles into your ears to stop the gusher of meaningless platitudes.

LOL. And I'll say this for Harold Ford. He didn't appeal to white guilt, and he didn't play up his African roots for dramatic effect.

Could you imagine, in World War II, a candidate named Adolf Heiz running for President, who, as a youth, had been a Nazi youth but then moved back to the US. Or a Japanese American who had studied with the Summari named Mutsi Tojo? Never, ever would have happened and someone trying to would have been liucky to simply lose without any votes.

America is infected with a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome.

Someday, maybe people will be judged for themselves and not their ancestry.

Just one of the stupid things you've said on this thread, noob. Go do your research like you said you were going to and spare us the cry baby touchy-feeling garbage.

Typical Coulter brilliance!

I love this one:

As long as Obama insists on using Hallmark card greetings in his speeches, he could at least get Jesse Jackson to help him with the rhyming.

(Well, thank heavens she wasn't insensitive enough to call him "articulate".

Maybe Obama was inspired by this dramatization.

He has no experience

Sure he does -- he just doesn't want you to know about it.

His political history in Illinois shows that Obama has proven himself to be a nearly perfect Progressive-Democrat.

While in the Illinois State Senate, Obama is named Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee. His distinguished works include passing bill to assist children and adults who cannot afford health insurance; increasing funding for AIDS prevention and care; a law requiring police to videotape interrogations for crimes punishable by the death penalty; a law requiring insurance companies to cover routine mammograms; legislation to curb racial profiling.

Obama supports homosexual marriage, racial preferences, gun control, flag-burning, socialized medicine and the absolute right to abortion, including partial-birth abortions. He voted against requiring medical care for aborted fetuses who survive.

Obama is anti-war, voted against the reauthorization of the USA Patriot Act, against privatizing Social Security and opposes the death penalty, three strikes laws and school vouchers.  He has no military service record.

Obama opposed the Defense of Marriage Act; would work to repeal it in the U.S. Senate; would not vote for any legislation that would restrict the ability of gays and lesbians to marry.
 
Obama opposed the Born Alive Infant Protection Act four times in Illinois. A similar bill passed the U.S. Senate 98-0. The Born Alive bill would have prohibited a baby from being born alive but left to die  according to the mother's wishes.

Obama opposed this bill not once, twice, or three times, but four times.
 
Obama took almost $90,000 in bundled contributions from the Council for a Livable World. The council is a well-known anti-defense organization.
 
Obama puts rigid ideology before what's best for the people of Illinois, and presumably he would do that as President as well. He has on several occasions made public his opposition to the NAFTA trade agreement and his belief that it must be negotiated. All the while thanks to NAFTA, Illinois exports $1.3 billion in agricultural goods to Canada.
 
Obama refused to vote for a bill in the Illinois State Senate that would have increased penalties for drug traffickers.

Obama voted against a bill that would have delivered the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders.
 
Obama was the only member of the Illinois State Senate to vote against a bill that prohibited early release for sexual predators.


Yup, he's a PROGRESSIVE

But I had to point out the best one:

Obama sponsored Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.

My favorite line:
If Obama's biggest asset is his inexperience, then if by the slightest chance he were elected and were to run for a second term, he will have to claim he didn't learn anything the first four years.
