On March 18 Senator Barack Obama, self-described “uniter” and “post racial” candidate for President, delivered a speech in Philadelphia which had his MSM flacks swooning and comparing him to Lincoln.
The flacks especially liked Obama’s outing his still-living white grandmother for what he said was her racism and his avowal he could no more disown his close friend and pastor of 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright "than I can disown the black community."
Obama will still tell you Grandam's a racist.
But once Wright became a major political liability and said Obama was just “another politician,” Obama threw Wright under the bus faster than you can say “Duke did that to its lacrosse team.”
Now Reuters reports on the latest Obama race speech in which the “post racial” Senator issued a dire warning to his fellow Americans:
Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him.The entire Reuters report is here.
"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?" ...
I’ve listened to Republicans who’ve told me Obama has the most liberal voting record of any Senator.
I’ve listened to what Obama's said about no offshore drilling.
I’ve listened to what he's said up until the eve of the campaign about Wright.
I’ve learned about Obama's confidence in Rep. Jack Murtha’s libels about Hidatha and our Marines.
Having done all of that and more, I’m very worried about an Obama presidency.
And so are millions of Americans who, despite what Senator Obama may preach, are not racists.
BTW – Has Obama yet explained how he sat in the pews of Trinity for 20 years without knowing what his friend and preacher Rev. Wright was saying?
