In no way should you construe the following as even a fraction of a percent of support for Barrack Obama! The ONLY thing I have in common with the guy is that we are both married and have 2 kids...that is it...no more...not a thing more...zip...nada....
No confusion, right?
So why do I think he could have done so much for us?
Think back about 12 months ago and try to remember the build up to the dominant force he became. Hillary was the presumptive nominee and was ready to be coronated. He was questioned if he was black enough - by black people. He was ridiculed for not being "down for the struggle" -- a reference to the civil rights struggle in the 1960's. He had to go to Selma, Alabama and speak in a "black" dialect. All to show that he was black enough and that while he may not have been marching for civil rights in th 1960's he understood the pain.
I had high hopes that he would have remained as an "outsider" in racial politics. He got far without having to bow to the civil rights movement leadership defined by the last 40 years by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. You have to understand that race is a business for a large portion of the democrat political machine.
If Barrack Obama indeed had been able to pull this off (as it seemed he was doing it all alone at the time), it could have changed a lot in the power structure of Washington politics. He could have finally, finally put an end to the race business championed by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They presumably wouldn't have helped him get the nomination or possibly the presidency and he would have owed them NOTHING. Their power could have evaporated. They would have limited influence in the Democrat party. We could have moved on.
Alas, the truth came out as it usually does. And like so many other things the true nature of Barrack Obama is being revealed. He is no different from anyone else out of the Chicago political structure and has gotten fully in bed with the civil rights crowd.
So, it is back to business as usual. Barrack Obama 360. No change here. We await for another messiah to free us from the shackles of racial politics.
