I see MCCAIN in a landslide at this point. I dreamed last night that MCCAIN looked like Allen Jackson, and it woke me up out of a deep sleep, thinking............. now that would work.

The DBM is too stupid to understand the public at large.

They will praise this racist diatribe and push him for a little bit.

Obama seems to be supporting the sentiment of the Wright hate speech.

next he will advocate sensitivity reeducation camps.

Now Obama is attacking Reagan and Rush.

He just blamed every problem in “black America” on whites. Everyone is free to live where ever they want and where ever they can afford to. Obama is claiming that a black man who gets laid off is worse off than a white man.

And now Obama is telling us that white people harbor the same feelings that blacks do.

Sorry, Obama... my church does not preach racist hatred and insult ANY politicians from the pulpit.

That's your church that does that.

Justifying Wright’s rhetoric by saying he suffered at the hands of legalized racism isn’t going to cut it.
Too many black Americans found success in this nation regardless of racism, and never held a grudge against racists.
Obama is a divider, he still doesn’t understand that life is hard for everyone in this world, and using life’s difficulties as an excuse to harbor rage and hatred only perpetuates the problems black Americans have.

Actually, I think this whole situation has set back race relations in the US by about 50 years. Whites had gotten passed color but now they have been reminded that blacks really do hate and despise whites.

Black politicians have been running the South Side of Chicago since before Prohibition and they drive the finest cars, play with the finest black and white women and amass a fortune, and still, their neighborhoods go to the dogs.

You mean not every black kid gets to have a Budweiser distribution business when he grows up?

Listening to Mike Gallagher right now and unless he’s being sarcastic, says that BHO hit it out of the ballpark....that this speech will have sewn up the nomination for him. I can’t tell if Gallagher’s being serious or not!

It seems aimed at white guilt and he already has those liberals.

Obama is a phony. Simple as that.

%%%%

He has always been an empty suit who has a special talent for speechifying. He came to MD to campaign for the white Democrat running for senator against the black Republican. He went to the largley black communities around DC and made it sound so logical why the black R candidate was unacceptable, and the white Jewish career pol was the correct choice.

All of us who said we'd never vote for McCain, best take a look at the alternative, and deal with McCain once he is elected.

We can't have a Racist in the White House..

Black politicians have been running the South Side of Chicago

Yes like Dorothy Tillman, whom Obama supported.

The Alderman and the Senator, April 16, 2007

I was surprised, and horrified, to learn that Barack Obama endorsed Alderman Dorothy Tillman for re-election in Tuesday's runoff. For those of you who aren't local or who wisely avoid the open sewer of Chicago politics, Dorothy Tillman is the disastrously corrupt, incompetent, and even demented alderman of the south side's long-decrepit 3rd Ward.

She's a lock for the city council's worst member (in an exceedingly crowded field of worthless time-servers), a politician whose sole purpose is to employ her children, stoke demagoguery (her signature issue is a quixotic effort for slavery reparations), and maintain her own North Korea-like cult of personality
