All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Jesse Was Only Half Right

When Jesse Jackson sounded off on Obama today most people focused on the "I'd like to rip his nuts off" comment rather than his "talking down to black people" comment, which goes to the heart of Obama's problem in the upcoming election. That's assuming of course that the presumptive nominee gets the nomination, which to some seems more and more less likely every day. Since Jesse is black and his interest is "black" America, he has failed to notice that Obama "talks down" to everyone. He talks down to "bitter Americans who cling to their guns and religion." He talks down to "people who can only say "merci beaucoup." He talks down to people who would make English the official language of America while ignoring that French in the official language in France, Italian is the official language in Italy and Spanish is the official language in Spain and Mexico. The simple truth is that Obama is an elitist of the worst kind. He thinks that we are all so ignorant and enamored by gold and trinkets that he can tell us anything and we will be caught in his spell. His arrogance is only outweighed by his audacity. Does he think that he can dump every friend he ever had and get the American people to believe that he won’t dump them when he has to? He dumped the Reverend Wright. He dumped William Ayres. He dumped Tony Rezco. He dumped his Grandmother. He dumped his supporters when he supported FISA and the Supreme Court decision against DC's gun ban. He will betray his supporters on Iraq. What makes you think he won’t dump you when its required to be elected President.
