Obama's Candicacy Is Now About Race

He was appalled by Don Imus' comment about Rutgers women's basketball and glad that Hillary Clinton forced the removal of Geraldine Ferraro after her comment about Obama'a presidency run. He was okay for twenty years listening to Jeremiah Wright's racist and anti-America ranting...until it became widely know.

Obama is a racist, plain a simple. He is a country hater. He's married to one. Are they products of twenty years of Jeremiah Wright's indoctrination?

At some time, he elected to "embrace" his black half over his white half. He has done this for political expediency. There was no way that he didn't know about Jeremiah Wright's anti-American and racist diatribes from the pulpit.

A NY Times editorial claims the Obama speech on 3/18/08 was a "profile in courage." Wrong. It was an Obama political necessity.
Mr. Obama had to address race and religion, the two most toxic subjects in politics. He was as powerful and frank as Mitt Romney was weak and calculating earlier this year in his attempt to persuade the religious right that his Mormonism is Christian enough for them.

Mr. Obama’s eloquent speech should end the debate over his ties to Mr. Wright since there is nothing to suggest that he would carry religion into government. But he did not stop there. He put Mr. Wright, his beliefs and the reaction to them into the larger context of race relations with an honesty seldom heard in public life.

Mr. Obama spoke of the nation’s ugly racial history, which started with slavery and Jim Crow, and continues today in racial segregation, the school achievement gap and discrimination in everything from banking services to law enforcement.
These are quintessential liberal talking points. From the Washington Post:
Obama acknowledged that he had heard his pastor say controversial things with which he disagreed, but he also said that in personal conversations he never heard Wright speak in a derogatory way about any ethnic group. And the senator described his congregation as typical of African American churches in embodying "the struggles and successes, the love, and, yes, the bitterness and biases that make up the black experience in America.

"I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can disown my white grandmother -- a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me . . . but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her by on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."
Pure cop-out. You can't chose your family but you can chose your minister. It is men like Obama, Jackson and Sharpton that keep the racial divide alive. They do it for their political and economic purposes. It pays to be a political racist. It pays to be anti-American. It pays to be a flaming liberal.

In Thomas Sowell's new book Economic Facts and Fallacies, ever since the 1930 and FDR's New Deal, the incessant, experimental policies of the left have proven to not only be unsuccessful but counterproductive. The "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again" formula has been a disaster. (BTW, he has great chapter on racial facts and fallacies).

Obama's speech was a pronouncement of his liberal policies. He wants government to increase its spending on social experiments. He knows they will not work. Rather he wants the power, the glory and the money associated with leading loser liberal programs. He wants to do this from the highest office in the world.

Obama stated: "Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely – just as I’m sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed."

There is an obvious culture issue here. Many black church's integrate politics into their sermons. However, not the churches I have attend. Not the LDS Church. No Barack, I have not strongly disagreed with my bishop, stake president or any general authority. Your knowledge about American religion is obviously limited.

For most people, attending church is not the same as attending a political rally. Most attend church to worship God. As a Mormon, we also renew the covenants we made at baptism.

For those who say religion has no place in politics, I agree. But when your religion is politics like in the case of Trinity United, that stance must be tossed out.

Obama's true colors have come out. He has now made his candidacy about race.
