Obama Is a Hypocrite When It Comes to Race

So, there have been stories in the news recently talking about how much race will be an issue in the 2008 election.

We had Barack Obama’s comments in response to McCain’s “Celeb” ad, comparing Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton: “Since they don’t have any new ideas the only strategy they’ve got in this election is to try to scare you about me.  They’re going to try to say that I’m a risky guy, they’re going to try to say, ‘Well, you know, he’s got a funny name and he doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills and the five dollar bills and,’ and they’re going to send out nasty emails.  And, you know, the latest one they’ve got me in an ad with Paris Hilton.  You know, never met the woman.  But, but, you know, what they’re gonna try to argue is that somehow I’m too risky.”

And back in June, Obama also said, “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me: ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. … Oh, and did I mention he’s black?'”

But, if we go back and look at his speech in Berlin, what do we find?  We find this: “I know that I don’t look like the Americans who’ve previously spoken in this great city.”

So, Mr. Obama, who is it that’s consistently playing the race card?  We’ve heard from you now accusations that Republicans and the McCain campaign are racist and will play the race card, but by saying that over and over again (without any examples to back up those claims), you are the one who plays the race card and is a racist.

You can’t try to wave your race as a banner to get you elected, and turn around and call the other side racist for running a TV ad that has nothing to do with race.

Mr. Obama, you are the racist.

    As an ex-Obama supporter, I agree with you completely. Not only is he the worst possible kind of scum, but his very own racist views are divisive and destructive.

    As a never supported Obama, but try to keep an open mind in case he wins and I have to watch him on tv and hear his voice for the next four years and do not want to cringe with disgust each time I see him or his name is mentioned, I could not agree more as well.

    Done Commenting.

    So now, when, as Obama thinks, he doesn’t need more delegates to be a nominee, he says that the MI & FL delegations should be seated in full and with full voting rights. So he acknowledges that the popular vote is clearly on Hillary’s side – better later than never.

    It’s easy to tell now why is this rush – the polls show clearly that Florida is leaning towards McCain more and more, and Michigan is again a on a table. And in this heat I believe Clinton should use the situation without much hesitation and urge for a roll call during the convention. Let’s see who will get more delegates at the finish.

    She wouldn’t get it, she’s lost too many Superdelegates now that she’s dropped out.

    What happened to the ’64 campaign?

    I’d rather hear about Goldwater than current Arizona Rep. candidate.

    What about Macomb County, MI –anything on this blog?

    Does Obama being multiracial make any difference here? …though he used “being black” for his advantage in the campaign.
    I just blogged on it at http://soozah.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/rush-limbough-on-the-banking-queen-and-the-magic-negro/
