Most of the media and their fellow liberals were positively giddy over Barack Obamas speech Tuesday, all but comparing it to the Sermon on the Mount.
I wont deny it was a masterful piece of oratory -- the man can be spellbinding -- but when you stop to consider what Sen. Obama was really doing up there on the podium, invoking the specter of slavery and Jim Crow and the era of whites only, it becomes clear that it was a con job designed to make the voters as giddy as he knew his worshippers in the submissive media would be.

It was laughable.
What is wrong with these PC Republicans who feel like they should add an addendum about how Hussien is articulate, when analyzing him?
Seems like everyone is treating him like a child.
Obama’s speech asserted that blacks are ENTITLED to pretend hatred is anger. An entitlement that Barry was unwilling to grant his whitey Grandmother.
The government needs to focibly integrate these “churches” just like they forcibly integrated our schools. Send some of these people out into the world every Sunday where they can learn about humanity and respect instead of venom and hate.
Watching some of the videos of what is said in these places and how people act it seems more like a bizarre combination of Hitler and a Three ring circus than a church.
Any resemblence to a real church where there is worship and respect for god and each other is accidental.
It is both disgusting and frightening to see the hate and divisiveness spewed by these hate mongers and to see how the congregation laps it up is even worse.
America cannot afford to have a man who believes in this trash anywhere near the White House.
All this whitey jazz the Reverend has been shooting off his mouth about needs some closer scrutiny. Seems he has some white blood in his veins. Maybe Obamas White Grandmother is also his (Wright’s)grandmother.
This will explain who Rochester was, in a way that won't make either of us sorry.
Heh, so that’s Rochester .... a few years before my time.
"Edmund Lincoln Anderson (September 18, 1905 - February 28, 1977), often known as Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, was an African-American comic actor who became famous playing "Rochester van Jones" (usually known simply as "Rochester"), the valet to Jack Benny's eponymous title character on the long-running radio and television series The Jack Benny Program.
Born in Oakland, California into a family of performers, Anderson began his show business career at age 14 in a song-and-dance act with his brother Cornelius and another performer.
They billed themselves as the Three Black Aces. At a young age, Anderson permanently damaged his vocal cords (he had to yell loudly for his job selling newspapers), leading to his trademark "raspy" voice.
Benny's ordering of his "valet" and Anderson's responses (sometimes a resigned "Yes, Boss," but just as often a snappy joke at Benny's expense) were among the weekly highlights of the long-running show.
"Rochester" became virtually as popular and well-known as Jack Benny himself: his popularity was so great that some newspapers reportedly listed the Benny program as The Eddie Anderson Show."

Good stuff, thanks. I can tell from the clip Steely linked that the guy was a talented comedy actor.
Yes - that is a great clip. He really was quite talented and had terrific timing. He was a pleasure to hear and watch.
Rochester became one of the wealthiest men of his era. He appeared in more than 50 films and had a part in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World."
