You have it exactly backwards. Senator Obama is not being rejected because of his skin color. He is falling in public opinion because Senator Obama has a long history of association with people who are racist bigots, demonstrably so.
It is not the “embittered, chip-on-the shoulder lower class voters” who support Senator Clinton who have the belligerent, hostile, in your face attitude. The people with a chip on their shoulder are the hostile, hate whitey mobs best exemplified by the recent actions of one Ms Conyers on the Detroit city council, beyond those voiced by Rev. Wright.
I am a white male (why does that make a difference? Who is the racist here?) who disagrees with Senator Obama on his policies (those policy positions I can actually discern beyond “hope” and “change”).
Further, it is awfully presumptuous of you to accuse me of being ‘“embittered, chip on the shoulder lower class voter” when you know nothing about me, simply because I oppose Senator Obama and simply because I am a white male.p>You, sir, fling that charge of racism much too broadly, and aim it at people simply because of the color of THEIR skin. Who is the racist here, sir? You ARE! br> — Thomas Lenon br> Skandia, Michigan /p> p> The very danger of even considering this foolish inexperienced old style radical Liberal candidate as President has nothing to do with those facts or Reverend Wright the loon. It is not even Obama’s willingness , even eagerness, to meet with the enemies of our country and of our friends with no conditions but my greatest fear is the question of what he would agree to in such ill-advised meetings. Hamas and others who hate us just seem way to anxious for us to elect this vain silly arrogant man. As one my old college professors once said, have you ever noticed it is those who have the least reason to be arrogant that are the ones most likely to be such? br> — Jack Wheatley
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
