Pointing out the obvious

Geraldine Ferraro, Walter Mondale's running mate in 1984, remarked that people are only voting for Barack Hussein Obama because he's black.

Gee, ya think?

Former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro on Wednesday stood by her comment that Democrat Barack Obama is only where he is because he is black and said the reaction by his campaign was dividing the party.

"My comments have been taken so out of context and have been spun by the Obama campaign as racist that it's doing precisely what they don't want done -- it's going to the Democratic Party and dividing us even more," Ferraro said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America."

Ferraro, the Democratic vice presidential candidate in 1984 and the only woman ever nominated by a major party for either of the top two U.S. political offices, ignited a flap by telling a California newspaper that "if Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position."


To show you just how far up the collective MudTrail the average voter's head is, you can do this little experiment: a) close your eyes, b) imagine every issue and position that Barack Hussein Obama stands for and supports, c) now slowly replace Obama's face at the podium with Dick Durbin's. It doesn't have the same 'magic' does it?

The reason it doesn't have the same 'oomph' is that you'll get no tickle out of voting for "just another" white man. The big emotional payoff is that smug feeling of self-assurance that you get when you leave the polling place having voted for the first black presidential candidate.

And with 90+% of black Americans voting for the black candidate, do you think the media would catch a whiff of stale racism in that group of voters? No way - the magic wand of Liberal hypocrisy gives instant dispensation to them.

This whole election stinks to high heaven. What a joke. We have 3 candidates who stand for next to nothing and will say, and do, anything - absolutely anything - to get elected.

The fact that people are voting for BHO simply because he's black is nothing more than a political reality. For Obama to call the comment "outrageous" shows just how deluded he is.

Obama speaks very well, so we must vote for him. Maybe he will reduce the guns on the street.

Speaking of out of control liberals
(actually he's a mobguy disguised as one), anyone see our mayor on tv
today? He said words to the effect of "We can outlaw everyone smoking,
but we cant outlaw guns in everyone's hands in America". I thought I lived in America, not Nazi Germany. So ghetto kids kill eachother because the Police force
has been "deballed" and cant stop
them under this regime/rules, so this facist asshole wants to disarm the whole country. What a nazi POS!!

What! Are you intoxicated Rue-y?

The only reason you neo-cons (I hate the term) make fun of Obama is because there is a very, very good chance he shall be our next president!!

I can almost hear the comments now, when about two months into his administration, because of policies of this present administration, there are tough financial times.

Nope, the neo-cons and the guys who post here, want "safe" blacks like Connie Rice and Charlie Pride who will not infringe on their territory. They feel "safe" with more guns on the street, even if means the death of some officer on the back roads of America who is "99" and the nearest back-up is 10 minutes away.

Breathe deep you of the right. Your days are numbered!!

We may be the only ones around after the dust settles between the waring factions of the left. I hope hillary runs as an indie just to f**k the kenyan! After all she and bill did for the ghetto, boy did they get screwed........

Hey 5:55pm, you forget that were the side(and types) that stockpile
guns & ammo! Before we take our last breath, we'll take alot of people with us.
Most of us are going to be content
just sitting on the sidelines and watch this whole thing implode. I'd
hate to be in any inner big city without a gun or 2.

I never cared for Geraldine, but this is the one time she is actually right. I still can't find anyone that can tell me anything Obama, has done for IL as a senator.

Remember, the Second Amendment anchors EVERY other Amendment in our Constitution.

Wake up Leftie - as more and more information becomes public about BHO, we're going to see more and more dirt on this "Messiah"

He is a closet racist, a black segregationist and has affiliations with black militants.

F**k him and his campaign.

There are plenty of black conservatives that I'd vote for. Thomas Sowell, LaShawn Barber - maybe even Juan Williams. I did vote for Allen Keyes when he ran.

Hey Rue-y!!

How can he be a racist if he was raised by his WHITE mother!

Your admission you cast a vote for KEYES tells us you do not want those blacks who fight the system.

The second amendment thing I will not even get into, that argument can go on forever.

I noticed however neither you, or the other critics, did not reply to to my comment more guns on the street will mean more dead police.

stay safe all

remember well when the affirmative action came into districts back in late 70s, there was a questionare distributed to all watches in which it requested your ethnic background etc concerning race. myself along with 4 other officers declined to fill this out as it smacked of the Nuremberg Racial laws of 1933, incidentally in that city pos also were required to fill out a similar form as to their being herren volk. We brought this to dist commanders attn and he gave a shrug and staed i dont make the laws just go along with it just like a good 1930s German, makes you wonder huh

Hey, leftie, the minute his mama took that black man meat, she was no longer White. She is what is known as an X-White woman. And from what I have read about her, I truly believe she had a serious mental condition.
