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.
