Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy.

“We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run,” said the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. “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?'”

In similar comments at a Chicago fundraiser last Thursday, Obama told supporters that Republicans would try to portray both him and his wife Michelle as “scary.”

“They’re going to try to make me into a scary guy,” he said last week. “They’re even trying to make Michelle into a scary person. Right?” And so that drumbeat – ‘we’re not sure if he’s patriotic or not; we’re not sure if he is too black.’

“I don’t know, before I wasn’t black enough,” said Obama. “‘Now he might be too black. We don’t know whether he’s going to socialize – well, who knows what.'” (Continue Reading…)

  • I was watching the news yesterday and watched a black woman sit there and say how wrong Obama was for using the race card. Everything Obama has been accused of saying or doing has been magnified because of his race, everyone already knows what big racists the Bushes are. Even the president was caught saying at an event that he wasn’t going to help the blacks when he became president because they didn’t have a high turn out of votes for him. He proved that by Katrina and a lot of other things. Everyone acts like racism doesn’t exisits in America it’s been at it’s worst these past 8 years. They have have accused his wife of being angry and having an attitude. Why is it when your white and say something negative your being assertive , but when your black you have an attitude and your going to be a problem. All I’ve seen is Obama apologizing for anything and everything, his wife has been treated the same way. They have even called him inadaquet, like Bush is . Poeple may not like my veiws, but this America and I can say what I want. But to be treated like your not an American is just unforgivable. Besides anyone wanting to be in the White House after Bush/ Cheney should commended, that is going to be a hell of a mess to clean-up.
