The real issue is not whether there should be a national dialogue about race. It is whether Senator Obama has any credibility on the issue. Though he presents himself as an open minded, healing uniter, he is steeped in the politics of racial division and hate. He has spent 20 years studying at the side of one of the most bigoted race hustlers this country has seen in a long time. I don’t think it is unreasonable to fear that some of these ideas might have rubbed off on him.
A person chooses a church to worship in that one feels comfortable in, that nourishes them spiritually, that teaches them, helps them grow as human beings and validates beliefs they already hold. Most people also need to feel comfortable with the style of the minister. It is troubling to think that Rev. Wright’s bigoted rantings might have validated some already held beliefs by Obama or that the Senator would want to subject himself and his family to the ministers hate filled monologues on a weekly basis.
A national debate should also be commenced concerning Obama’s intelligence and judgment. It is scary that a person this close to the Presidency would pick as his guru, mentor and spiritual advisor, a man who believes that the U.S. government created the AIDS virus to kill black Americans (and apparently accomplished this by first introducing the virus into the gay/white community). Why would Obama want a crackpot like this advising him on anything?p>I think we have more than enough reason to be concerned. br> — K. Wilson br> Highland, Indiana

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
