No one is making this campaign about race except the racists and the black Democrat primary voters who vote 95 percent for Obama because of the color of his skin.p>The problems Senator Obama faces are not because he is part black but because he is inexperienced for the job and associates with some nasty people. Since he has no record to judge him by we must judge him by his associates. The fact that the most prominent of those nasty associates, for now, is black is irrelevant. Obama’s indicted scumbag associate Tony Rezco is white. It is irrelevant. Obama’s ex- and unrepentant terrorist associate Bill Ayers is white. It is irrelevant. Obama’s mentor, pastor and member of the family, Jeremiah Wright is black. It is irrelevant unless you wish to make race the issue rather than making an issue of the fact that Wright is an anti-American, racist, raving lunatic that the would-be President of the United States took his family to listen to for twenty years. br> — Tom Thompson br> Hurst, Texas /p>
Sadly, it appears more and more so that by overt default or covert design, Barack Obama may be one of the most racially divisive pols to come down the pike in a long time.p>April 30, at National Review Online’s The Corner, in his blog entry ” Who is the Dr. Frankenstein of this Monstrous Situation? ” Victor Davis Hanson, a white nationally syndicated columnist and academician, includes other divisive collaborators with Obama. br> /p>
He said, in closing: “So Wright goes on, Obama goes on, Hillary goes on. When they have all finished, the wife of the first ‘black’ President, the candidate who ‘transcended’ race, and ‘old uncle’ Wright — and the liberal Democratic Party — will have done more to destroy racial relations than all the David Dukes in the world.”
Meanwhile, on April 30, in “Obama opens a can of worms,” Mary Mitchell, a black columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, illuminates the us-them chasm between blacks and whites, and presents a very different perception of what’s transpired — focusing on what she believes is an assault on the black church and blacks by white America — and who precipitated it.
She wrote, in part: “At a time when African Americans [sic] are on the cusp of watching a barrier come crashing down, up jumps a divisive issue that is being driven by those outside of the black community….The notion that white pundits can dictate what constitutes unacceptable speech in the black church is repulsive to most black people…. But Wright speaks to a different audience, and that audience has been supportive throughout his ordeal. On Monday, for instance, when Wright spoke at the National Press Club, the predominantly black crowd cheered, clapped and punctuated Wright’s speech with shouts of ‘amen.’ So, when Obama says America was ‘offended’ by Wright’s harsh language, he isn’t speaking for or to Black America. He is speaking to White America.”
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?
