Obama's Big Speech

All of Obama's flowery rhetoric just hides the Utopian Euro-socialism that he believes in and wants to impose.

Listen carefully to his speech this morning: He's trying to be a candidate of racial reconciliation, but he excuses Wright as being a typical black man who grew up in during government imposed racial segregation, as if there's been no progress in that area in the last 40 years. In other words, we "don't understand because we're not black."

Then he equates all of the hateful worst that Wright and his ilk believe to principled conservative opposition to affirmative action, crime and welfarism, as if that's just the flipside of the same coin simply because race is an issue in the discussion.

Moreover, instead of taking responsibility for being a member of an anti-white church for the last 20 years, he blames the ills of the black community (and the other victims - immigrants and women) on evil corporations (presumably run by white people), Ronald Reagan and George Bush's War. Give me a friggn' break. This is supposed to soothe me, how exactly?

And it's all a lie. It's a smokescreen. His prescriptions for these ills are made up of nothing more than big government liberalism, more welfare, wasteful spending on shoddy education, socialized health care and racial quotas (what he calls "ladders of opportunity.")

I understand why Americans would appreciate a black person becoming president as a symbol of just how far this country has come, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't be picky about electing a president.

As with any candidate, character, ability, judgment, and what that person believes and would do as president is vitally important and Barry doesn't get a pass because he's black and would symbolizes post-racialism (whatever that means). In other words, we shouldn't just accept the "first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy" just so we can feel better about ourselves.
