Who are these people?
Who are these people who think that a Presidential candidate who is black and has attended a separatist church for over 20 years shouldn't be criticized or questioned? Who are those who are now calling for us to put this episode behind us? As they use to say in the Clinton Years; let’s move on. The mainstream liberal media is in the tank for Obama, and makes no attempt to hide their favorite son. This week they are trying to say that Obama’s poll numbers are rising so therefore no one minds that he attended a church for 20 years where America was the brunt of hateful diatribes. Most commentators have bowed before the bronze God of color citing his “it’s your fault I’m a racist” speech as the one the greatest, frankest speeches ever on the subject of race. We are now being told that unless we have seen the entire speech we are not capable of interpreting what he said. No one has ever applied such standards to John McCain, Hilary Clinton or George W. Bush. Sound bites from their speeches are constantly used to characterize a whole speech. But because he is black we can only comment if we have heard the whole speech, and if we are fully capable of understanding the nuances of his wonderful and humane intellect. From now until the Democratic convention Obama’s Achilles heel will be his former Reverend, and despite all the efforts being made to sink this story it will not go away. If in the end Obama does not get the nomination or loses the election his failure to denounce the separatism being espoused by his church will be a major reason.
